Join Alberto Villoldo, Marcela Lobos, and the Medicine Women and Men of the High Andes in a weekend of ceremony and sacred rites of passage. This is the first time the medicine women will come from the high mountains to transmit their rites of initiation of the divine feminine, which will be offered to all participants.
The shamans consider themselves the midwives of a new time for humanity. In an evening ceremony you will be invited to toss into a fire the old and stale beliefs that keep you tied to your past and family of origin, and to shed the musty, worn-out legacy of our history.
Marcela and the female shamans will anoint the women in a ceremony of return to our Divine Mother, where you can heal the wounds inflicted on the feminine for centuries. Alberto and the medicine men will lead a rite of passage to mend the fabric of the wounded masculine and find forgiveness and healing. We will take part in an empowerment ceremony offering you the ‘Sacred Keys,’ that allow you to embody a timeless wisdom from the stars given to the shamans at the beginning of time. These keys help you find a destiny where you can bring joy and peace to all beings, starting with yourself.
The shamans will be available for private healing sessions during the weekend, on a first-come first-served basis.
This course will include follow-up Zoom calls.
All attendees will be invited to participate in the Solstice Global Healing ceremony led by the Andean Shamans in June and December.
