Introduction to the Pachakuti Mesa Tradtion
Saturday, September 29th 9:30 - 12:00 $40
In this workshop, we will define the Pachakuti Mesa Tradtion (PMT) which emphasizes both personal and planetary healing.
This practice involves ritual and ceremonial mastery of the mesa as passed down through the lineage of Peruvian curanderos (healers).
The mesa is an altar-like arrangement of empowered objects, a shamanic tool which is used to engage enlightened beings and elemental
energies for restoration of balance, health and harmony between humans, other dimensions, and our natural world. Mesa are used for healing, ceremony,
journeying, manifesting, divination, transformation and communion with the spirit realm. The mesa is a reflection of you, and an extension of your Self.
Come and create a basic mesa and begin learning how to work with it.
The Pachakuti Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism was originated by don Oscar Miro-Quesada,
respected kamasqa curanderos and altomisayoq adept from Peru.
(Pachakuti means world reversal)
