The Heartland Ayllu sponsors and facilitates apprenticeships in the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT). The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal is a five-part series of intensives that aligns the traditional teachings of Peru and the wisdom of its heritage with the needs of the present day. Providing a comprehensive foundation and profound initiation through ceremony and prayer into the living heart and soul of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, this will help participants cultivate a deeper relationship with nature and the unseen world, and receive multiple opportunities for self-exploration, empowerment and profound personal growth. This powerful series is open to all people who desire to be of service to themselves, their families, their community, and Mother Earth, whether they are long-time mesa carriers or new to this tradition through personal and communal ceremony.


The Apprenticeship Series for Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT) was originated by Oscar Miro-Quesada, known world-wide as a Peruvian kamasqa curandero (rough translation – shaman). Oscar Miro-Quesada also holds a position as a UN Observer to the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, as well as an OAS Fellow in Ethnopsychology.
