An unprecedented opportunity to discover the universal principles hidden within global shamanic traditions and experience the inner transformation that unifies heaven
Be prepared to expand your heart, open your mind and tap the divinity within all things to walk a path of real joy.
Have you marveled at the stories of “shape-shifting” shamans, miraculous healers and medicine men and women who walk “between the worlds” for information from ancestors, guides and spirits?
Or have you witnessed indigenous elders whose simple, heart-filled presence effortlessly reminds you of how graced we are to live each day with the blessings of Mother Earth?
Well, it's time to take them off a pedestal and recognize that those same skills and qualities of being are available to YOU. You have, within you, seemingly miraculous powers and the same humble reverence that illuminates these beloved elders and pioneers.
And you can evoke these capacities in your life through the journey of becoming a universal shaman who is committed to the ONENESS of humanity, healing ancient rifts and restoring wholeness to ourselves and the planet.
While modern spiritual traditions each have their wisdom and beauty, our more ancient shamanic traditions have withstood the tests of millennia to give us access to the mystical dimensions of life and live more harmoniously with ourselves and our relations.
These traditions speak a language of prayer and guidance, harmony and heart that is a balm for our souls, too often caught up in the relentless activity and technological buzz of modernity.
Skilled shamans develop a profound ability to pierce the veil of reality, discover the hidden dimensions between the worlds and then gather information and the support of unseen forces to restore health and vitality in our bodies and our communities.
They connect us with plant and animal allies in unique ways and create rituals that reweave the human family together.
These shamanic lineages carry essential medicine for the 21st century, a time in which we are now called to form a global community of peace and shared understanding.
In recent decades, something wonderful has been happening with these traditions – shamans and healers from different lineages are finding each other and beginning to recognize a common core of understanding about life and how to live in a sacred way.
The ancient prophecies of the reunification of Eagle and Condor speak to this meeting. Tribes from north to south and east to west are sharing their ancient wisdoms and finding their common vision. Emerging groups such as The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers speak to the shared heart, intent and spirit of peoples around the world.
It is time, in short, for the emergence of universal shamans who draw from ancient roots of many cultures, but who express the truth of ONE HUMANITY in new ways. The path of the universal shaman offers us a chance to heal our history, integrate our shadows and express the light at our core in ways that are unprecedented. It offers the chance for us – as a global people – to learn to live in harmony and holiness with each other.
Peruvian shaman and founder of the Heart of the Healer Foundation, don Oscar Miro-Quesada, has emerged as one of the leading lights, pioneering this modern, yet ancient, path of universal shamanism. 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 and weaves 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 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 has worked with luminaries, such as Barbara Marx Hubbard, to blend 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 birthing the divine human in you.
If you are curious about the essential spiritual wisdom held within indigenous shamanic traditions, but are unable to spend months in remote rain forests or mountaintops, this 7-module virtual apprenticeship is your best opportunity to be in communion with a powerful spiritual teacher who is bringing together relevant and essential wisdom for our modern lives.
You will gain a uniquely powerful exposure to Peruvian Pachakuti practices that are designed for spiritual evolution and healing. They will help you deepen your enjoyment of every moment and access higher and lower realms for guidance and healing.
The Peruvian practices will be situated in the larger context of universal shamanism, helping you to understand and integrate the key threads of awakening, healing and wholeness that come to us from around the world.
Some of the modules will connect you with the “medicine” of a particular Peruvian animal – from the hummingbird to the condor – as part of the recognition of how deeply interwoven we are with our animal relations. Universal shamans develop this ability to learn from, and observe, the wisdom within animals as a way to access
By the end of the “virtual apprenticeship,” you will emerge with the universal shaman in you activated in a way that leads to profound shifts in your life towards greater wholeness, wisdom and sacred depth. You will be more connected with the “sacred hoop” of all of life.
During the journey, you will also have the opportunity to engage in discussion, exchange and practice with the global community that gathers for this 7–module virtual apprenticeship. Indigenous traditions recognize that all real healing happens through the community, so to be able to access such profound teachings from the comfort of your home – while still being in deep connection with a global community – is a true blessing.
Greater Connection through Video
As a special addition to this course, don Oscar will be streaming videos of selected teaching sessions so that you can have an even more powerful connection and transmission. This video connection will be easy to use and will greatly increase your learning and transformation.
What You’ll Discover in These 7 Modules
Each teaching, practice and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to engage universal shamanic teachings with clarity, rigor and transformative power.
You’ll emerge with:

- Enhanced ability to live from reverence and peace.

Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific.
MODULE 1: The Call to Heal
In this first virtual gathering, we shall explore the relevance of a shamanic worldview as a global catalyst for human spiritualization. We will overview the various forms of shamanic initiation including illness and crisis. Classic perspectives on dismemberment and ritualized death for the attainment of soul vision and healing power shall also be presented. Additionally, we’ll give an introduction to the cosmovision of Pachakuti Mesa Tradition and ritual healing arts that will serve as the foundation through which to progressively awaken the universal shaman within.
- Releasing the Past – moving beyond the illusion of victimhood and embracing the choice of sacred volunteerism.
- The Art of Communion: Quietude, Stillness and Presence – befriending the great originating mystery.
- Ukhu Pacha Ch’usay: An Immersion Within (lower world journey) – guided practice for accessing inner dimensions of being and the archetypal realms of shadow.
MODULE 2: A Balance of Power
The shamanic universe is replete with magical, unexpected and non-ordinary possibilities when compared to our conscious waking reality. In order to benefit from this unlimited panorama of opportunities for growing your soul, we must learn to engage the powers, forces and visionary guidance in this vast sea of human possibility with balance and discernment. In this second apprenticeship gathering, we will share time-proven tools and techniques for harmoniously harnessing such non-ordinary potentials and living in a balanced way.
- Transforming the Present – the disciplined use of imagination, sacred word and ritual gesture.
- The Art of Consecration – ceremonial expressions of gratitude for evoking sacred reciprocity in our lives.
- Kay Pacha Ch’usay: The Sojourn of Here-and-Now (“middle world” journey) – guided practice for making “this world” a reflection of one’s wholeness, beauty and reverence.
MODULE 3: The Condor’s Quest
It is a well-known fact that true healing is a labor of love. Having learned to say “YES” to the call – having heeded the great dreaming to embrace a transformational vocation of relationship with oneself, others and the universe as a whole – we must now learn to lovingly establish trustworthy spiritual alliances with unseen helpers and guides who inhabit the inner and outer dimensions of our being. From an openhearted place of appreciation for the beauty and grace contained within our Pachakuti Mesa Tradition shamanic altar ground, we will call upon the love which is our essence, in service to personal and planetary renewal.
- Creating the Future – invoking alliances of transformational opportunity in partnership with seen and unseen shamanic realms.
- The Art of Composition – tools for ritual patterning and visionary configuration of a sacred shamanic altar ground for personal and planetary healing transformation.
- Hanaq Pacha Ch’usay: A Celestial Embrace (“upper world” journey) – guided practice in shamanic flight to access superior realms of universal wisdom and spiritual guidance.
Note: This module will be offered via streaming video.
MODULE 4: The Hummingbird’s Ascent
Building upon our accrued wisdom and the shamanic tools learned thus far, we are prepared to embark on the journey of transforming mind. By trusting soul, we re-member; in honoring spirit, vision is bestowed; and through the opening of our hearts, the healing power of love is granted. And thus, our next step is to apprentice the art of making manifest our thoughts, insights and divine imaginings in a manner that positively transforms current reality. The power of intention and disciplined imagination known to Pachakuti Mesa Tradition adepts shall be thoroughly apprenticed and mastered in this fourth gathering of our series.
- Living the Mystery – consciously embracing the wonderfully unpredictable nature of life and finding sustenance in the cosmic order behind the illusion of separateness.
- The Art of Connection – shamanic techniques for maximizing our human evolution as luminous strands within the “great sacred web of creation.”
- T’eqsimuyu Ch’usay: Returning to One (“cosmic seeding” journey) – guided practice for the shamanic dreaming of a “New Earth.”
MODULE 5: Our Shamanic Self
The journey of initiation into perennial shamanic wisdom teachings and ritual practices gives us an embodied understanding of the primacy of consciousness behind all things. This, in turn, deepens our ability to effect healing influence within our physical bodies. Participants in this fifth apprenticeship module shall be introduced to the workings of “kawsay” – vital life force – for the strengthening and evolution of our human neurophysiology. Awakened in the heart by the experience of inextricable solidarity with our living Earth, we shall learn shamanic techniques for harnessing Gaia’s sacred medicine, allowing us to deepen and sustain our attainment of vitality and balanced living.
- Serving the Earth – teaching love by the way we live.
- The Art of Cooperation.
- Ch’aska Runa Ch’usay: A Starlight Re-Membering (“contact” journey) – guided practice for the realization of Self as Creation.
MODULE 6: All Our Relations
We are all native children of Mother Earth, all indigenous participants of her tribal dreaming – blessed by a shared experience of common unity with Pachamama and consciously dedicated to her sustainability. As a global family, our sense of belongingness is a true “re-membering,” by which each thought, word and action finds radiant reflection in All Our Relations. Based on our shared willingness to stand together, in deep reverence for the Great Sacred Hoop of Life, we realize our earth walk is a path of sacred activism.
- Sustaining the Tribe: Evolving our Human Destiny.
- The Art of Compatibility: Exercises in Resonance, Reverence and Revelation.
- Munayniyoq Ch’usay: Reflections of the Beloved (“blessing” journey) – guided practice in the sanctification of love as our essence.
Note: This module will be offered via streaming video.
MODULE 7: A Universe Within
In the memorable words of T.S. Elliott, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring, will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time.” Indeed. Although this noble sojourn throughout virtual shamanic dimensions of healing must come to “an end,” in reality, it remains an eternal beginning, a return to the One Source. We are now fully prepared to carry forth the magic, mystery and medicine of universal shamanism to the Four Directions. In doing so, we forever help crystallize The Shift, for we have learned to embrace a lifeway that leads from victimhood to volunteerism, from separation to wholeness, and from fear to love. This is our destiny, this is our decree, Pachakuti Mesa Tradition carriers and Gaia’s children. Infinite gratitude for your evolutionary participation in transforming our world through sacred living!
- Birthing the Cosmos: Initiation into the Immortality of Self.
- The Art of Correspondence: As Above So Below – a synergy of the One and the Many.
- Tiyayakuy Ch’usay (“welcoming” journey) – guided practice in the evolution of universal sentience.
needs saving, it needs loving."

Audio Dialogue with Stanley Krippner

Listeners of this deeply informative conversation shall be treated to a mind-expanding exploration of the shamanic roots of human consciousness, the development of psi abilities and reclaiming a soul-inspired worldview inclusive of dream and myth, as well as science and technological progress.

The Shaman’s Flight and Heaven’s Light
Audio Dialogue with Dr. Raymond Moody
This lively conversation between two old friends and seasoned navigators of other worldly realms illuminates the inherent self-transformational power accessed through shamanic journey work and the near death experience (NDE). Dr. Moody’s groundbreaking re-discovery of the extraordinary healing potentials available through the use of ancient Greek Psychomanteum chamber, to help individuals and families in bereavement, shall be discussed within the context of shamanic death and rebirth initiatory experience.
Dr. Raymond Moody is the leading authority on the “near-death experience” – a phrase he coined in the late seventies. Dr. Moody’s research into the phenomenon of near-death experience had its start in the 1960’s. The New York Times calls him "the father of the near-death experience.” He is the bestselling author of twelve books including Life After Life – which has sold over 12 million copies worldwide – as well as numerous articles in academic and professional literature. Dr. Moody continues to capture enormous public interest and generate controversy with his ground-breaking work on the near-death experience and what happens when we die.

I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever – not in all the years of taking college classes – and I had my doubts about doing an on-line course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.”
