Peruvian shamanic studies (TENTATIVE)
Please check back. We will hold classes and workshops once our county moves to yellow or green, or postpone if not.
Registration closed on January 27.
In the past, we offered Introduction to Inkan Shamanism and Continuing on the Shamanic Path as two separate series. Our new tradition is to present Peruvian Shamanic Studies, the best of both series combined into one. Participants will not only create a solid foundation for personal work on the Shamanic path, but will be prepared to move into our Healer’s Circle to continue learning and practicing healing techniques with others if desired.
Peruvian Shamanism offers a way to connect and communcate with kamaquen, ‘the spirit of all things,’ bringing balance and harmony to the energies of Spirit and Earth. This series explores the cosmology, rites and rituals of both the Northern Curandero and Southern traditions.
Participants will experience foundational teachings, journeys, exercises and healing techniques based upon the tradition of Andean Cosmology. Through the creation of a Mesa, a sacred altar of stones and power objects, participants will learn to activate ‘non-ordinary’ states of consciousness.
Gifts you’ll receive:
- Florida water
- Rose quartz
- An Ancestor stone
- Jungle tobacco
- Quartz crystal from Mount Ausangate, Peru
What to bring:
- A traditional mesa cloth, or other cloth approximately 18x18 inches
- A stone/crystal that represents you
- Three other stones/crystals
- A rattle
- A feather, at least 4 inches long
- An open heart
- Water bottle and/or travel mug
- For Sundays - Your own lunch (beverages and dessert provided)
Note: This eight-part series requires a commitment to attend all four Sunday workshops, as well as all four Thursday evening classes. Participants are obligated to pay for any missed sessions (payment still due on the dates of the Sunday workshops). Traveling through the series in order, with your classmates, not only enhances your personal growth, but the bonds of community and growth as a collective. Please plan your calendar in advance so you can attend all year! However, if an emergency causes you to miss one, you can still continue your studies in this year, then make up the missed session (at no additional cost) next year.
