Oscar Miro-Quesada

May 6–8, 2011

Tuition $195 + 2 nights

A seasoned navigator of non-ordinary states of consciousness, Oscar is well prepared to guide people from all walks of life into visionary realms where multidimensional powers and forces are available for the healing of self, others, and our planet. The Pachakuti Mesa tradition offers an experiential initiation into the ancestral shamanic healing arts of Peru; we will be presented with core wisdom teachings: viaje con sombra (magical flight); vista en virtud (spiritual sight); rastreo (divination); and florecimiento de Ser (blossoming of Self), derived from traditional Peruvian Kamasqa Curanderismo. Choosing to embrace an earth-honoring shamanic path of healing service often unites the personal and the transpersonal, the known and the unknown into a profoundly mythic life of experience, unity, and love. Join this celebration of life as a sacred gift and help shape-shift the many common ills associated with modern living.

Oscar Miro-Quesada is a respected Peruvian kamasqa curandero, UN Observer to the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, OAS Fellow in Ethnopsychology, originator of Pachakuti Mesa cross-cultural shamanism, and founder of The Heart of the Healer Foundation. Oscar has dedicated his life to the revitalization of ethnospiritual wisdom traditions as a way to restore sacred trust between humankind and the natural world.
