Q'ero Shamans

Q'ero Shamans

Q'ero Shamans
don Juan and don Pascual are traveling from the high Andes to share the wisdom of the Q’ero, the Quechua-speaking Andean people of south-central Peru. The Q’ero preserve a sacred prophecy of a great change, or "pachacuti," in which the world would be turned right side up, harmony and order would be restored, and chaos and disorder ended.

The Heart of the Shaman: The Oracle and the Art of Divination

Mar 22 - 24, 2019 Begins in 3 months
with Marcela Lobos & Q'ero Shamans

In the West, many of us grow up internalizing our culture’s “original story” of being cast out of paradise and separated from our divine Creator. This bankrupt story tends to permeate our lives whether we are raised in a religious home or not, causing us a great deal of suffering. In this program, you will study ancient healing practices employed by shamans and come to understand that if we wish to heal our wounds on every level, it’s crucial that we discard this myth and discover that we never left the Garden of Eden.
