It’s clear to anyone with eyes that planet Earth is hurting. Our people. Our ecosystems. Even Pachamama herself. They are all sending out signals of very real distress.
As someone who is sensitized to the plight of our planet, you are no doubt troubled by what you’re witnessing.
How, you ask, can you be of highest service in helping shift humanity into a new, earth-honoring possibility?
The answer begins with realizing your own gifts as a shamanic practitioner — someone who is able to work with energies, intentions, and the spirits of nature.
Developing your shamanic skill set empowers your own humble acts of service, fueled by the natural forces and energies of Pachamama.
That’s how YOU begin to offer the sacred medicine our world desperately needs — through simple acts of wisdom, kindness, and heartfelt ritual mastery of shamanic forces and powers.
You walk a path of profound beauty, imagination, myth and ritual... in which you fall deeply in love with “the winged ones, swimmers, crawlers, and the 4-leggeds,” listen as much as you speak and heal with your presence as much as with your words.
You become one of the courageous “2-leggeds” heeding the call to a life of reverence for the Earth, Great Mother of the human family.
It’s particularly valuable now that we draw from the wisdom of traditional Andean people, who know themselves as Runa, Children of Pachamama, Mother Earth.
They understand we live on a planet where gods, goddesses, and myths are alive in the landscape. It’s all part of Mother Earth’s multi-layered divinity revealed through the beauty and magnificence of her physical body.
Aware that Earth’s landscape is a sacred geography, traditional Andean peoples see life as an act of loving presence and reverence in partnership with All Our Relations. As humans, we are beholden to respect the wisdom ways of Mother Nature and beautify our world for future generations.
This ecological path of shamanic wisdom is governed by a universal law known as Santu Kamachi Qelqa — our Dharma, our life’s purposeful mission as two-legged children born from the generosity of Pachamama’s dreaming womb.
To gracefully embody the spirit of this living wisdom, we must first learn to heal our human estrangement from the sacred dimensions of life, restore our essential wholeness, and reclaim our Truth that aligns our lives with Love.
In this way, we prepare ourselves as evolutionary catalysts in service to healing the heart of Gaia-Pachamama.
The Reverence, Ritual & Renewal Advanced Program will apprentice participants in long-forgotten shamanic rituals related to the proper ceremonial activation of sacred powers and spirit bridges into Pachamama’s subtle energy body.
Called Seq’e Ñan, "spirit pathways," by Peru’s ancestral wisdom keepers, the ritual sustenance of this luminous planetary matrix is considered a vital human contribution for maintaining Mother Earth’s health — as well as a means of informing the evolution of all sentient life on Earth.
Ancient temples and sacred ceremonial sites around the world are like hyperspace portals or multi-dimensional wormholes from astrophysics. They are outward, visible signs of an invisible, numinous order.
Called a waka ("earthen sanctuary"), these repositories of sacred power play a part in the human effort to define the cosmos, name the divinity or higher principle behind it, and experience the interdependence of self, culture, and nature.
As ancestrally sanctioned places of veneration, every natural landscape shrine, revered pilgrimage destination, stone cairn, and artful ceremonial offering sustains the complex web of our collective spiritual heritage upon Pachamama.
By performing the earth-honoring rituals you will learn in this advanced Universal Shaman course you gain access to multiple dimensions of Being, helping you understand your essential Self through a direct experience of the sacred in life.
You will dramatically empower our human re-membering as a united planetary family with a common origin in the starlight of the cosmos.
don Oscar has distilled the cosmology of his kamasqa and Paqokuna ancestors into ritual practices that enhance your path of healing service to Pachamama’s sacred web of life.
If you recognize the truth in the above description and the calling in your bones to be of shamanic service, we invite you to join our global community — to engage in Earth-regenerative and soul-restorative practices passed down by our Andean ancestors.
Reverence, Ritual & Renewal offers an unparalleled opportunity to receive shamanism teachings never before shared in a virtual setting, from Peruvian curandero and great lover of life, don Oscar Miro-Quesada.
don Oscar is one of the leading lights in 21st century shamanism, pioneering this modern, yet ancient path. He speaks humbly from his heart in a way that anyone can recognize as the “voice of the soul.” He creates rituals that draw from his Peruvian Pachakuti tradition that also weave in the wisdom of other peoples.
He teaches us how to live in new-but-ancient ways: connected with the daily blessings of life, filled with love and committed to acts of precise shamanic service.
The stories from don Oscar’s life are truly miraculous, and yet, his demeanor is humble and filled with gentle laughter.
He’s a respected kamasqa curandero and altomisayoq adept from Peru, as well as co-author of Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life. He’s also Fellow in Ethnopsychology with the Organization of American States and a United Nations Invited Observer to the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
don Oscar’s advanced studies in modern psychology have given him the tools to understand the common threads of shamanic teachings and weave them together into a more integrated framework. He blends ancient traditions with modern evolutionary understandings — to create a holistic, integral synthesis.
This results in a unique and beautiful gift to you: a chance for you to harvest the most important insights, practices and perspectives from millennia of shamanism — to integrate them with modern psychological and spiritual teachings, and to apply it all to living your highest potential.
If you want to go deep into the wisdom held within indigenous shamanic traditions, but are unable to spend months in remote rain forests or mountaintops, this 17-week virtual apprenticeship is your best opportunity to be in weekly communion with a powerful spiritual teacher who is bringing together relevant and essential wisdom for our modern lives.
You will gain a unique exposure to Peruvian Pachakuti practices that are designed for healing yourself and the larger world.
You’ll participate in distance-healings to help detoxify and purify lands and communities in distress as well — plus don Oscar will guide you in the fascinating work of accessing the healing energy of sacred sites throughout the world.
Ancient temples and sacred ceremonial sites are like “hyperspace portals,” which don Oscar describes as “outward and visible signs of an invisible, numinous order.”
These waka (earthen sanctuaries) are repositories of sacred power, which play a part in the common human effort to define the cosmos; name the divinity or higher principle behind it; and unite self, culture, and nature.
The rule of no realm is mine... But all worthy things that are in peril as the world now stands, those are my care. And for my part, I shall not wholly fail in my task if anything passes through this night that can still grow fair or bare fruit and flower again in days to come. For I too am a steward. Did you not know?
— Gandalf, from The Lord of the Rings (1954-55)

Take a courageously comedic plunge through the Rabbit Hole and receive a beneficently humbling shamanic dose of oxymoronic ontology, perspicacious paradox and anomalous affirmation guaranteed to reverse your unreality. Journey with Caroline W. Casey and don Oscar Miro-Quesada as they track the magic of language back to its primordial liberating spark, before snookered, bamboozled, hoodwinked, conditioned and colonized, to offer ourselves as agents of Nature’s eloquence.
We live in a conversational world. (“Con” means with, and "verse” means “turn.”) We are all in one giant spiraling conversation. Everything is speaking to us, by its shape, color, song, rhythm. May our rogue species cultivate reverent curiosity, whereby to rejoin the conversing, already underway. We trust the provocatively polyamorous shapeshifting semiotic bliss emergent from this metalinguistic skull session with Caroline and don Oscar shall serve to avert (further) “dis-aster” (“against the stars”) — so let’s gather to “con-sider” (“with the stars”).
Caroline Casey is known for her unique art of astro* mythological* political* guiding* meta-storytelling — which is presented in myriad multimedia venues. For more than 22 years, she has been the weaver of context for The Visionary Activist Show (on KPFA and KPFK, Pacifica Network).
Caroline is dedicated to astrology as one of the great meta-languages of antiquity, uniting everything of consequence: personal and collective change, ritual magic and esoteric philosophy. She’s also a rousing and frequent keynote speaker at political, environmental, spiritual, psychological and astrological conferences, as well as an MC at global music and activism festivals — including emceeing the spoken-word stage at the Symbiosis Eclipse Festival in Oregon.
Stories of initiation, calling, and the power of spirit to affect the mind and body. This audio dialogue will bring you into an intimate container shared between two world class healers. Make a cup of tea and settle into the world of magic, psychology, and healing.
Joan Borysenko is a distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine and a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing.
Eloquent and inspiring in settings that range from hospitals to hospices, from theaters to conference venues, and from boardrooms to houses of worship, Joan is a credible bridge between faith and reason. Her brilliance, humor, and authenticity — in combination with the latest research — make her a compelling and inspiring speaker and writer.
This toolkit is everything you’ll need to get started practicing Universal Shamanism in the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT). Available as soon as you enroll, this set of PDFs and audio files will prepare you for a very deep dive into the cosmic perspective wielded on this path.
Your PMT Basics Toolkit includes:
The course arrived synchronistically to me, I needed re-equilibrium for my elements and a way to gain spiritual mastery on my own. More confidence and healing the shadows. A purifying fire and deeper contact with my divine Self. Just shine and get in contact with Source! Bendiciones! May I remember, experience, and be!
— Begoña, Catalonia, Spain
My whole life has changed. I’m absolutely more present and aware of the magic that surrounds us. It is no accident that I found the shamanic path and ultimately don Oscar and his teachings. It has been a blessed re-membering of who I am and a call to action.
The course was exactly what I needed, I wanted to enrich and expand healing techniques, applicable in occasional healing sessions provided for friends and myself. I did not need to ask any questions, all mine were asked by other participants and so fully and amazingly elaborated on by don Oscar. I’m so happy to be living a new beginning with Pachakuti Mesa in my space. THANK YOU!

The joy of this course goes on and on!

Now, I have come to expect that each lesson will include words of wisdom, initiatory transmissions, and questions about the topic at hand answered.

The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
