Francisco, Spiritual Leader of the Inkan Q'ero, and Billie in
Munay-Ki Rites are energetic transmissions from the Inka Q'ero
nation. They have been released in an attempt to help people fast
track their spiritual growth and personal healing, in an attempt
to create Earthkeepers -- people who Walk in Beauty and understand
how to steward the Earth. It is said they help anchor people into
the new time to come. But by helping people heal themselves, we
also help create the time to come. When people are released from
their old stories, fears and limitations, they will Walk in Beauty
with love in their hearts and service in their souls.
transmissions are common in all shamanic traditions, and in the
past, the person who wanted to walk the shaman path would receive
these initiations as part of their healing and training.
Munay-ki were released so that people could bypass the 25 or so
years of training and take a short cut. However the initiations
themselves do not make a shaman or a healer, and without the benefit
of training and guidance, the seeds ignited may not flourish.
my training with the Q'ero and the Four Winds Society, I was taught
by Doña Bernadina that it is important to cleanse and clear
the body before giving rites of initiation. We do this with the
shamanic healing practises taught in the tradition. Students are
taught shamanic practises and processes to help with clearing
negativity, and to ground and grow the seeds. The object of the
training is to clear the chakras of sludge so they eventually
shine their true rainbow colours -- creating the "rainbow
warriors" of indigenous prophecy. This is not automatic.
It takes working with the shaman to strip everything that is not
your essential, authentic self.
I found the Munay-ki, which translated, means "love power"
or "be as thou art", stirs the pot of your essential
self. Cleaning the sludge from the Luminious Energy Field can
be easy and blissful, or difficult and challenging depending on
the individual. Using the Munay-ki with the Healing the Light
Body school training has shifted me 180 degrees on my axis. I
feel lighter, empowered and am fulfilling my visions for creating
a new world - a kinder, more compassionate world where people
and animals live in sacred harmony.
vision for sharing these initiations was always to create a community
or tribe of people who would be human angels for animals. Healed
people who cast no shadow on the animals they loved and would
be ready and willing to be of service to the animal kingdom.
of the Wild Pure Heart is the training of the animal shaman -
a transformational shamanic course which helps people understand
the language of all of nature, the interconnection between animals,
nature and humans, and the needs of animals as psychic and sentient
is the course for people who are perhaps more focused on their
personal journey. Like Path of the Wild Pure Heart, it includes
the rites of initiation, but also includes shamanic healing and
guidance. People are helped to reconnect with nature and animals
, as this is an essential part of our personal healing. This disconnect
I believe, is what is the root cause of the problems of our planet
courses are transformational and shamanic in nature. This means
you learn by experience and the learning goes beyond the class
room. Training includes personal healing and ceremony, as ritual
and ceremony helps bypass the limbic brain to create personal
change. People will also be taught how to call in the lineage
for help , healing and growth.
courses are held in a group situation, but the work will be tailored
to each individual as some people may have a more challenging
time accepting energy than others.
vision with my school is to create a strong community of healed
people who can then work for change. Gatherings of apprentice
shaman who are free of the web of stories which hold them, are
a rich experience on many levels for all concerned and can contribute
hugely to the health of the planet. These gatherings can be physical
or connected by the world wide web.
the last two years I have had the great honour of being able to
complete my training in shamanic healing, finishing all seven
required courses, working with the Q'ero elders, and doing extra
Master's courses and sitting at Shamanic Gatherings with other
medicine men and women who were full mesa carriers in this tradition
- to work on further personal and global change.
is this depth and understanding that I bring to my teaching of
the Munay ki, and of course a lifetime of communicating with animals
and nature, which, according to Michael Harner, is the definition
of a shaman.
some traditions you are not a shaman until you can converse with
all your relations.
Munay-ki in its essential form is an Andean teaching and I would
ask that all students come to class as an empty cup, ready to
learn and experience something new, exciting and life-changing.
