A Call to Heal
 Releasing The Past

This apprenticeship workshop initiates participants into the Pachakuti Mesa, a powerful and sacred altar. Students learn how to create their own mesas and work with them for self-empowerment, transformation, and helping others.


Through shamanic journey and visionary states of consciousness, participants will explore the three worlds of the Andean cosmovision, sacred reciprocity with all that is, the core ingredients of ceremonial mastery, sacred sound and ritual language, healing and curanderismo, and the inner world of the ukhupacha.

A Balance of Power
Transforming the Present

During this workshop intensive, participants will apprentice in the center of the mesa, traditional Peruvian healing practices, and the kaypacha, the middle world.


They will explore the kaypacha’s elemental matrix and magico-spiritual power, and learn about the moon’s presence in the middle world, mapping the cosmos on Earth, and celestial death and rebirth.

A Condor's Quest
Creating the Future

 This workshop is an initiation into the paqokuna, the Andean Shaman/Priesthood mystical path, the lineage of the sacred mountains, and the five virtues of the mesa.


Participants will also journey to and experience the hanaqpacha, the upper world beyond the physical, work with the unseen world there and deepen their connection to their own spiritual resources.

The Hummingbird's Ascent
Living the Mystery

In this apprenticeship workshop students will experience the upper world and learn about its lightning bolt of mystical illumination and the flow of kamasqa, the power of Creation.


They will work with the elements, the forces of the universe, the body of Mother Earth, and sacred healing objects.


In sacred reciprocity participants will create despachos to honor Mother Earth, the sacred mountains, the elements, the unseen world, and prepare for a paqowachu, a sacred pilgrimage.

The Shamanic Self
Serving the Earth

This workshop deepens participants’ experience of soul and spirit through ritual process, including the spiritual creation, activation and care of an apacheta.


Students will work with the power of creation in the kaypacha or middle world, dimensionality and time, as well as with the three suns, and the hampikamayoq process (ancient breathing techniques for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being and transformation).


Participants will be further empowered by evoking both seen and unseen sources of cosmic awareness within their mesa, sacred objects and own being, and initiation into the lineage of this revered tradition.

A Note on "Ayni"

Sacred Reciprocity

While it its true that these teachings are not 'owned' by any one person, and are freely offered in spirit to any heart-felt aspirant of the Great Work, delivering them is not- nor ever has been- truly 'free.' 

In order to stay in balanced reciprocity with the great web of life, there is an energetic exchange required from each apprentice in order to 're-feed' these living-breathing teachings, and those that guard and disseminate them. 

In this modern world, that exchange is received partially through financial currency, and partially through your committed presence, acknowledgement of the indigenous lineage, and devotion to learning and making good use of this craft for the benefit of all.

Given this wisdom, please know that your financial & energetic investments are a powerful prayer and recognition of the value of the return of these medicine teachings into the modern world, while respecting their indigenous roots, for the benefit of yourself, and of all life.

Roughly a 10% tithe of your tuition goes directly to THOTH, don Oscar's organization.
