The Path of the Andean Healer

Training with Barbara Hess

at Anam Draiocht Centre Ardmore County Waterford

In this year long adventure we will gather our Khujas for our Micha Mother Bundle Q’ero style one by one by pilgramage to 12 local Nature Beings i.e Mountains, valleys, rivers, ocean, holy wells. With the sacred law of Ayni with our Munay, Yankay, Yachay (love and will, action ,intellectual knowledge) we create beautiful Haywarikwuys (despachos) as an offering to ask that our chosen Nature Beings become our allies. We will choose our 12 Nature beings (I.e. mountains, lakes rivers, oceans, valleys, power places ) with our heart so we are nestled in them ,where we live, for life force and healing for ourselves and others. They will be our companions on our spiritual path who help us in all kinds of work we do and bring harmony, love and healing to our lives.

Don Umberto: “a Khuya (healing stone)in our mother bundle gifted from our Nature Being through the sacred law of reciprocity Ayni is the caller and the channeller of the soul of that nature being.”

We will begin with making pilgrimages to the home of our Pacarina: Nature Mother and Itu Apu Nature Father

Our Pacarina and Itu Apu are our mom and dad given by mother Earth to us at birth. “Our Pacarina is the gateway to the greatest wisdom and to our subconscious”. Don Umberto:” Our Itu Apu is our lawyer who argues our case in the invisible world. “

We will learn how to call on those nature beings. With the sacred reciprocity of Ayni we make a request by gifting a haywariquy (offering with our own hand and love) to that Nature Being to receive a khuya for our misha. We receive the heart, the power and love of that nature being in the form of a khuya . We give our Karpay with our offering and receive the Karpay initiation/irrigation from the nature being.

Don Umberto says : “Karpay is everything it will give you abundance health and protection. It is the gateway to gain healing powers the gateway to the Pampa Myshayoq and Alto Mishayoq. It gives you the special connection with Pachamama and the Apus (the Earth and the Mountains) and speak with pachamama. It gives you the power to heal and create and you will have the power to face particular situations in your life. It will give you stability in your family and it refines the energy where you live.”

“The Soul given to each of us is moved by the same living spirit that moves the Universe.”
