Cosmology for
Empowerment Series Foundational Program

Are you ready to craft a new story for you and your village? To be driven by vision and purpose? If you have a strong desire to awaken your healed state, to reconnect with Pachamama (Mother Earth) and to experience Ceremony, Ritual and Rites of Passage, then we invite you to join us for the upcoming Cosmology for Empowerment training.

This is a unique program based in Andean Medicine, Ceremony and Ritual, which allows participants to build a Mesa (Medicine Bundle) through the exploration of the ways in which we navigate in our relationships and in the world. 

This training engages participants in Direct Experience on Sacred Land. Class size is limited to ensure the integrity of the oral Indigenous teachings and a profound, heart-centered experience for participants. This life-altering Indigenous training is offered every 24 months.  Please join us in April if this sings to your heart!

Lectures, experiential exercises and discussion are part of the core curricula. The program is geared around small group participation to promote community and to provide maximum benefits for growth and empowerment.  A commitment to all four training sessions is required.


Cosmology for
Empowerment Series

Foundational Program Outline

Session 1

In Cosmology 1 we identify Stories of Woundology and energetically transform them into Stories of Power.  We begin to build our Mesa (Medicine Bundle) through Ancient Healing Practices, Ceremony and Ritual.   Held by the Lineage of Andean Medicine People we drop our belly into the belly of Pachamama (Mother Earth) remembering our place in creation.  Through the transmission of the Rites of Passage we reconnect to the Earth, awaken Fluidity and ignite our healing on an energetic level.

Session 2

In Cosmology 2 we Die to the Old ways of being that no longer serve us, so we can energetically transition into Fullness of Awareness. We engage in Jaguar Medicine, look fear in the eyes, and release the Hucha (Heavy Energy) of our Ancestral Lineage. We choose to walk in all of our relationships and engagements in presence, heart and connection.  Through Rites of Passage, we awaken our Jaguar Medicine Body in our Luminous Field.

 Session 3

In Cosmology 3 we Awaken the Sage within.  We release what is in our way to becoming a clear channel so we can drink from the Source of Wisdom.  We move beyond the Ego Mind of looping thought patterns, creating a new Framework of Reference.  Seeing through new eyes we are guided by Collective Vision.  In Sacred Ceremony we receive the Rites of Passage that align us with the eyes of our hearts as we step into the Q’ero Lineage of Medicine People.

Session 4

In Cosmology 4 we Transform our Mesas from a Personal Mesa to a Shaman’s Mesa (Sacred Altar). This life altering training allows you to create a profound relationship with your Mesa through understanding the Source and Medicine that resides in your Cuyas (Medicine Stones).  Through direct experience you will gain a clear vision of the practical uses of your Mesa.  With Practice and Discipline your Medicine Bundle guides your healing journey, your relationships and engagements.  Imagine walking in the footsteps of the Shaman, in your Soul Purpose.  This session is the completion of the Cosmology Foundational Program.
