We are delighted to announce that Don Mariano Quispe will return here in November, 2016 to share more in-depth teachings from the Andes, accompanied by longtime friend and accomplished translator, Odon Medina.
A beloved and deeply respected Q'ero elder, healer and ceremonialist from the Andes Mountains near Cusco, Peru, Don Mariano has traveled here several times in the past seven years. His first pilgrimage to North America was in 2009, when he taught and traveled together with us and friends from California, Colorado, and the Northeast.
Part of the anchoring of the journey was here in the Qollasuyu (Southeast), bringing together dream and everyday reality. This opened a cycle of teachings with Don Mariano that we are grateful to have been able to continue, as he has returned every year or two ~ linking the heart of the mountains of South America with North America and allowing a rare opportunity for many of us to experience apprenticeship here at home.
Additional information about Don Mariano's 2016 visit will be posted here soon. Meanwhile, let us know if you are interested in the teachings he will share the first two weekends of November, if you would like to be notified about future plans, or if you would like for us to hold a space for you in the workshops.
