Ancient Healing

 After years discovering and learning about plant medicines from the Amazon rain forest, I found myself drawn to ancient Inca shamanism. I followed an apprenticeship walking the path of the pampamesayoq, which is a spritual path in service of Mother Earth. Fortunate enough to learn directly from the paqos or ‘priest healers’ of the Q’ero nation, their teachings opened up a wondrous but very familiar world to me. The Q’ero people are direct descendants of the Incas and their spiritual traditions and healing methods have remained largely unchanged since the days of the Inca empire, when the remaining survivors of their communities escaped to extremely high altitude communities deep within the Andes mountains.
