Welcome to the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism, a spiritual practice guided by a long lineage of master healers and supported by a loving community of Pachakuti Mesa carriers worldwide.
About The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition
‘Pachakuti’ means ‘world reversal’ and refers to the time of transformation we are living now. A mesa is an altar for self-exploration, transformation and personal growth in which we create a new paradigm of one’s relation to the Self and the Universe. This shamanic tradition, in all its richness, is an evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is.
What is a Pachakuti Mesa?
In the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition we interact and build relationships with these unseen realms through the creation of a specific type of altar or mesa called the Pachakuti Mesa. This sacred patterning of elemental expressions becomes the seat of spiritual vision and the game board for interacting with all of creation.
Who can practice shamanism?
Anyone with a yearning to be of loving service and healing support to self, others and our living Earth.
Origins of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition
Don Oscar’s apprenticeship with the famed healer and huachumero don Celso Rojas Palomino from Salas, Chiclayo, Peru took place between 1969 and 1986. After don Celso transitioned to the Spirit World, don Oscar started a four-year apprenticeship within the Andean Paqokuna shaman/priesthood with famed kuraq akulleq don Benito Corihuamán Vargas from the village of Wasao. Don Celso had insisted that the only way to safeguard these ancient healing traditions was to bring them to Western acculturated peoples. This led don Oscar to originate the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism replete a healing altar (mesa), ceremonial practices and ritual arts.
“As we construct our altars, we re-claim deep connection with ourselves, our communities, and Pachamama. As we call forth the power of nature into our altars, we recognize that we are not alone, we are luminous strands within the whole.” ~ don Oscar Miro-Quesada
