Shamanic Apprenticeship

Are you ready to embark upon the Sacred Journey you've been waiting for?

“I highly recommmend this apprenticeship to anyone, beginner or advanced, wishing to connect to a living lineage of shamanic arts. This course is perfectly structured and incorporates the perfect amount of intellect.” — Maya M Glasgow, Scotland


This five part initiation into the living heart and ancestral soul of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition is intended to awaken in every participant who completes the program, a remembrance of their incarnational purpose as luminous strands of the Great Web of Life in service to the Seven Generations.

The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal is a five-part series of intensives that aligns the traditional teachings of Peru and the wisdom of its heritage with the needs of the present day.

Through the apprenticeship, you will:

  • Receive personal healing & potent initiations to awaken your inner magical genius

  • Receive profound wisdom teachings of cross-cultural shamanism and the shamanic arts

  • Be guided in the use of time-honored Peruvian shamanic rituals, healing methods, and ceremony

  • Learn how to create your own Mesa, a sacred altar for self-exploration, empowerment, and transformation

  • Cultivate your relationship with the unseen world by discovering your personal guides who will help you “re-member” your purpose

You will leave this apprenticeship with powerful healing tools that you can use for your own soul’s growth and to help your friends, family, pets, mama earth, or clients.  

No experience in healing work or shamanism is necessary and beginners are encouraged to apply

Part 1

"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.


Part 2

"A Balance of Power: Transforming the Present"

July 10th-12th, 2020

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.


Part 3

"A Condor's Quest: Creating the Future"

October 9th-11th, 2020

 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.


Part 4

"The Hummingbird's Ascent: Living the Mystery"

January 15th-17th 2021

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.


Part 5

"The Shamanic Self: Serving the Earth"

April 9th-11th, 2021

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.

Sacred Reciprocity "Ayni"

While it its true that these teachings do not belong to any one person, and are freely given to any heart-felt aspirant of the Great Work, they are not 'free.' In order to stay in balanced reciprocity with the great web of life, there is an energetic exchange required in order to 're-feed' these living-breathing teachings, and those that guard and disseminate them. 

Given this wisdom, please know that your financial & energetic investments are a powerful recognition of the value of these medicine teachings for the benefit of yourself, and of all life.


While the nature of the universe is unfinitely abundant, we recognize that we live within a social system that does not always recognize this notion through our financial streams of reciprocity. It is our joy to help bridge this injustice by offering different payment options based on your current level of financial abundance.

Please take a pause to meditate on, and choose your path of ayni with respect for the generosity of this system, and in whatever way feels most balanced for you.

Option 2 is a regular exchange rate

If, during the apprenticeship, you have an emergency or illness causing you to miss one of the weekends, you are still responsible for any ongoing tuition payments as scheduled, and you may participate in the other ongoing program elements. To make-up your weekend, you have 2 options: Either your tuition will go towards a future apprentice hoop which you will sit in on for just that weekend. Or you can do a 1:1, day 1/2 make-up with Shardai for an extra fee of $200. You are only allowed one make-up per apprenticeship series, to keep the integrity of our circle.

Payment Plan Policy

You will be sent a financial/energetic contract to sign upon registration. 

You are responsible for complete payment of your apprenticeship. No refunds will be given after the start of your contract, even if you choose not to complete the full apprenticeship, for any reason. (see emergency cancellations above)

Your deposit will be put towards your tuition costs, and is non-refundable upon final registration.
