Sit in powerful ceremonies. Experience energetic initiations. Shed the old skin of the past. Usher in a new era.
It is rare for indigenous shamans from South America to leave their villages 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 Earthkeepers 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 for humanity. Together we experience energetic transmissions of an ancient Inka lineage of wisdom 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 2017.
We are now in a time of great transformation, from climate change to species extinctions to technological revolutions, 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 the human spirit and discover the unlimited power of healing in The Great Shamanic Initiation.
