You’re born from starlight, a divine descendant of the creative impulse behind universal manifestation...
You’re a heavenly being, a cosmic evolutionary (and loving) intelligence in physical form.
What if you could activate this inner light body at will — and become a vessel of sacred “medicine” to heal and transform our world?
The healing wisdom of ancient shamans, trained to activate their luminous bodies, is now available to you...
With the potent practices and ceremonial skills of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, you can awaken your light body for healing and transformation.
Using the gifts of your fully activated subtle energy field, complemented with breathwork, chants, hand positions, and a healing altar, you will “re-Member your Self” as a Shining One, a K’anchaq Huqniyuq, capable of great acts of beauty, love, and healing service.
The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of shamanism provides a comprehensive understanding of the ritual cosmology and healing use of the sacred powers and forces revered by Andean wisdom-keepers since time immemorial.
These practices are relevant for people from all walks of life who are seeking to maximize their presence as sources of healing light in the world. As an apprentice, you’ll become deeply sensitized to the living soul of this ancestral medicine tradition. Entering into sentient communion with the creativity of the Great Originating Mystery can restore balance and harmony to your life and the lives of others.
In Becoming a Shining One, you’ll practice ritual arts of prayerful invocation, evocation, and decree — empowered through shamanic breath, Quechua sacred words, altar configuration, ceremonial gesture, and focused imaginative intention.
You’ll receive hands-on ritual practices and energy healing arts for the healing of self, others, and our planet that are derived from Peru’s northern coastal kamasqa curandersimo and southeastern highland paqokuna shamanic traditions.
This heartfelt experience of shamanic initiation will include the use of specific vibrational frequencies to activate the elements (earth, water, air, fire, and ether) and harmonize your body, mind, emotions, and soul in service to you and others.
Your guide on this journey will be Peruvian shaman and world-renowned curandero (healer), teacher, and author don Oscar Miro-Quesada, who has emerged as one of the leading lights in pioneering this modern, yet ancient, path of Universal Shamanism.
He speaks humbly from his heart in a way that is readily recognizable as the “voice of the soul.” He creates rituals that draw from his Peruvian Pachakuti tradition while also honoring and weaving in the wisdom of other traditions.
He teaches us how to live in new-but-ancient ways — connected with the daily blessings of life, filled with love, and committed to acts of service.
The stories from don Oscar’s life are truly miraculous, and yet his demeanor is humble, as evidenced by his kindness and gentle laughter.
He’s a respected kamasqa curandero and altomisayoq adept from Peru, as well as co-author of Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life. He’s also Fellow in Ethnopsychology with the Organization of American States and a United Nations Invited Observer to the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
don Oscar’s advanced studies in modern psychology have given him the tools to understand the common threads of shamanic teachings and the wisdom to weave them together into a more integrated framework. He has worked with many evolutionary luminaries to blend ancient traditions with modern evolutionary understandings to create a holistic, integral synthesis.
The result is a unique and beautiful gift to you: a chance for you to harvest the most important insights, practices, and perspectives from millennia of shamanism... to integrate them with modern psychological and spiritual teachings... and to apply it all to birthing the deep potentials within you.
If you’re curious about the essential spiritual wisdom held within Indigenous shamanic traditions, but are unable to spend months in remote rainforests or mountaintops, this 12-week shamanic initiation is your best opportunity to be in weekly communion with a powerful spiritual teacher who is bringing together relevant and essential wisdom for our modern lives.
So you can better connect with don Oscar and his teachings, all of his sessions will be streamed on video. Video will deepen your connection with him and the community and add potency to the wisdom transmission. This video connection will be easy to use and is designed to increase your learning and transformation. Or, you can easily connect via audio, either through the Internet or your phone.
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at Noon Pacific.
Each weekly teaching, practice, and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to engage Universal Shaman teachings with clarity, rigor, and transformative power. don Oscar will be pre-recording each teaching session on video in order to offer the clearest transmission of this work. Eleven of the 12 teaching sessions will be followed by a LIVE Q&A session with don Oscar so you can have an opportunity to connect with him directly.
To provide apprentices with the most genuine experiential encounter with the seen and unseen dimensions of Peruvian shamanic healing traditions, don Oscar Miro-Quesada has consciously chosen to articulate the module descriptions (see below) associated with this course in the form of invocation, prayer, and decree that call upon the magic, medicine, and mystery inherent in being a Shining One.
You’re therefore encouraged to read out loud each module description in the spirit of self-initiation to fully benefit from the perennial wisdom soul of Peru’s shamanic reality.
So take a few breaths, relax your body, open your heart, quiet your mind, and allow what you read to lovingly touch your soul...
You’ll receive apprenticeship in the ritual consecration and configuration of sacred space conducive to the energetic harnessing and focused application of healing potentials and tutelary spirit guidance available within the five sacred directions of our Pachakuti Mesa altar grounds.
Your initiation into Pachakuti Mesa Tradition shamanism focuses on teachings regarding the proper ceremonial etiquette, sacred space patterning, and ritual activation of healing powers and energetic forces residing within the five core artes (shamanic power objects/medicine pieces) that comprise the multidimensional golden spiral template at play within the living tapestry of the Pachakuti mesa
You’ll engage in a guided visionary process for the collective awakening of shamanic alliances with spirit helpers and luminous sources of healing assistance known to Peru’s ancestral wisdom keepers.

IMPORTANT FOR INTRODUCTION CLASS:
A ceremonially activated PMT altar ground is a key aspect of this program, so it’s required that you begin the first class with one. When you register, you’ll receive instant access to a special video, Introduction to the Pachakuti Mesa, that will guide you in creating your mesa if you don’t currently have one.
Please also note that there will be some additional items you’ll need in order to finalize your mesa. Ideally these will be stone “relatives,” which you will intuit based on the guidance you receive from the video teaching. In addition to gathering these, you’ll be provided with a supplemental reading list. This course also includes sanctioned teacher support to assist you with any questions that arise throughout the course.
In addition to don Oscar’s transformational 12-week live virtual training, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions and bonus materials. These bonuses will complement what you’ll learn in the course — and take your initiation and work with your mesa to an even deeper level.
This compelling tutorial video has been artfully crafted to initiate you into the core shamanic cosmovision and ritual practice of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition as originated by don Oscar Miro-Quesada. You’ll be provided with a step-by-step hands-on demonstration on how to prayerfully consecrate your ceremonial space and configure and awaken its directional healing power through the placement of various shamanic power items upon its sanctified ground.
You’ll be given:
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are new to Oscar’s teachings, we ask that you watch this video and have a basic mesa assembled as a prerequisite BEFORE the 12-week program begins.
Join don Oscar Miro-Quesada for this compelling video dialogue with pioneering pediatric critical care physician, David Steinhorn, MD, and respected shamanic healer Jana Din. Dr. Steinhorn and Jana Din are working on a profound new approach to healing — they’re integrating ancient shamanic practices into modern Western medicine and doing it in a part of the hospital where the difference between life and death often hangs on a very slender thread.
Can shamanic healing methods known to invoke a spiritual reality replete with non-physical powers and forces capable of restoring healthful inner peace to those who are suffering not only complement but enhance the practice of modern-day medicine and psychotherapy? Can the traditional use of ancestrally honored plant sacraments help terminally ill patients with depression, existential suffering, anxiety, sometimes unrelieved pain, etc., to heal old wounds, and discover meaning and lessons in preparation for death?
Dr. David Steinhorn is an academic pediatrician who practices intensive care and hospice medicine for children. He’s founded palliative care programs at Children’s Hospital of Buffalo and Northwestern University in Chicago and served as medical director of George Mark Children’s House in California. Dr. Steinhorn has additional training in energy medicine, yoga, meditation, and shamanism, studying with teachers from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, the Four Winds Society, and Dr. Carl Greer. His passion is to find ways of alleviating suffering wherever it may occur and to help patients, families, and healthcare providers discover meaning in all of life’s experiences.
Jana Din has provided over 100 shamanic healing services for critically ill children, their families, and the medical clinicians that care for them, in a unique collaboration with David Steinhorn, MD, ICU and hospice physician. It’s Jana’s privilege to provide shamanic healing in hospitals, hospices, and around the nation, to help patients, families, and healthcare providers discover the spiritual meaning in the challenges and experiences a person faces when seriously or terminally ill. Jana captivates and inspires audiences nationwide with her poignant, often heartrending stories of healing the human spirit in the midst of working with patients and families who are facing the most agonizing times of their lives.
These three journeys will take you deep into yourself to explore the profoundly beautiful multiverse we live in every day. Listen to one at a time or in sequence to access the foundational practices familiar to all shamanic practitioners worldwide. The Peruvian approach will speak directly to your heart, allowing you to bypass the mind and understand who you really are.
That which is engaged in upon rising shall always be sustained by the beauty and grace of creator/creatrix of the great originating mystery. don Oscar begins by aligning himself with a personal prayer and then enumerates five distinct practices that can be done upon rising that are derived from the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism, and correspond with the five directions of the altar space that practitioners of these arts use in their daily practices.
This toolkit is everything you’ll need to get started practicing Universal Shamanism in the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT). Available as soon as you enroll, this set of PDFs and audio files will prepare you for a deep dive into the cosmic perspective wielded on this path.

My whole life has changed. I’m absolutely more present and aware of the magic that surrounds us. It is no accident that I found the shamanic path and ultimately don Oscar and his teachings. It’s been a blessed re-Membering of who I am and a call to action.
The course was exactly what I needed, I wanted to enrich and expand healing techniques, applicable in occasional healing sessions provided for friends and myself. I did not need to ask any questions; all mine were asked by other participants and so fully and amazingly elaborated on by don Oscar. I’m so happy to be living a new beginning with Pachakuti Mesa in my space. THANK YOU!

I have taken several courses through The Shift Network with don Oscar. At first, I was surprised that the shamanic initiations were so powerful. Now, I have come to expect that each lesson will include words of wisdom, initiatory transmissions, and questions about the topic at hand answered. Through the courses I’ve taken with don Oscar, I have shifted into a deeper awareness of the shamanic universe that I am a part of, and have awakened to healing and spiritual gifts that had been dormant within.
