Sit in powerful ceremonies. Experience energetic initiations. Usher in a new era.

It is rare for indigenous shamans from South America to leave their countries to share their traditions and wisdom. In The Great Shamanic Initiation, we have the unique opportunity to receive teachings for personal transformation and renewal directly from the Q’ero shamans from the high Andes in Peru.

Join Alberto Villoldo, Marcela Lobos, and our visiting shamans as we share initiation rites and ceremonies that help transform the self and usher in a new era. Together we experience energetic transmissions of an ancient Inka lineage of earth-keepers during two fire ceremonies. These transmissions help us grow a body that heals and ages differently, and allow us to dream a new world into being. The Andean shamans and Villoldo also provide an updated and live reading of their prophecies beyond 2015.

We are now in a time of great change and we have the opportunity to make a difference in the quality of human consciousness. Spirit is calling. Will you answer the call? Become a part of the evolution of consciousness and discover the unlimited power of healing in The Great Shamanic Initiation.

Alberto Villoldo, PhD, a medical anthropologist and psychologist, has studied the spiritual practices of the Amazon and the Andes for more than 30 years. He is founder of The Four Winds Society and author of numerous best-selling books, including Shaman, Healer, Sage; Power Up Your Brain; and Courageous Dreaming.

Marcela Lobos

Marcela Lobos was born and raised in Chile, where she leads expeditions, working primarily with women shamans who belong to a matriarchal society that maintains the wisdom and passion of Mother Earth. She is also involved in many events, courses, and expeditions as a senior staff member at the Four Winds Society.

Q'ero Shamans

For 500 years the elders of the Q'ero, the Quecha-speaking indigenous Andean people of south-central Peru, preserved a sacred prophecy of a great change, or "pachacuti," in which the world would be turned right side up, harmony and order would be restored, and chaos and disorder ended. Q'ero shamans don Francisco and dona Jaunita are travelling from the high Andes of Peru to share initiation ceremonies that help transform the self and usher in a new era.
