One of our sacred teachers, don Oscar Miro-Quesada, reflects on the nature of ayni (sacred reciprocity):
"Through ritual action we restore harmonious relationships both 'within and without', for these are the same. By focusing on service to our beloved Earth mother, we open ourselves to receive love and comfort from powers that are far older and wiser than is any human relative."
Excerpt from Lessons in Courage, p. 61
The Heartland Ayllu is an independent, volunteer-based community. What we do is not possible without members of our community offering their time, skills, and talents in service to the greater Heartland Ayllu community. Our monthly Link Ups and Moon Lodges are created and facilitated by members like you. Also, our Community Mesa is tended seasonally by a volunteer and our Community Apacheta is tended monthly by a volunteer.
If you are a member of our Ayllu, are a Mesa Carrier in the PMT, and would like to volunteer please contact us through this website. You will then receive details via email about how to get involved. Thank you so much for your heart-centered service to the Ayllu!
