The Sacred Andean Tradition shows us a way of being and living that brings us back into harmony with life, nature, and the world through consciously connecting to the four elements. The natural flow of abundance and a deeper appreciation of life exist within this state of harmony.

Kamaq Wageaq, a Peruvian Kuraq Akulleq of the Sacred Andean Tradition, will present the following South African workshops. These experiential workshops offer an understanding of the profound nature of life and an invaluable tool to navigate the tumultuous times of Earth’s changes we are living through.

Intensive training is offered over four days on how to carry out these practices, and participants will receive the first energy transmission, or Karpay, from this ancient lineage. The presenter and several facilitators will support the above at the main venue and at various natural sites.

After the invasion of the Spanish conquerors, the Q’eros took refuge in the high mountains and remained isolated from the world for around five hundred years. As recently as 1955, anthropologists made the first visit to the Q’eros nation and announced the existence of the last heirs of the Incas. They still preserve the ancestral customs of thousands of years ago; they have a deep connection with nature and are guardians of mystical information that has been passed down through the generations. They wish to share this knowledge with the world now, as we are in a time of major planetary and energetic change.

The four elements, Earth, Water, Air and Fire, the basic structures of universal energy, are the starting point of the journey in this initial four-day retreat, which includes receiving the Andean Paq’o level Karpay, or energy transmission. These, together with the concepts of balance, love, wisdom and service, are conveyed through simple teachings and practices based on the close observation of nature, as practised by the Paq’o or traditional medicine person within the Q’eros communities of Peru.

This is the first stage of the path of this knowledge and wisdom that was hidden for centuries and has only been released into the West over the last thirty years. This will offer you clarity and understanding of the Andean healing processes; some topics to be presented are the Inca Cosmovision, practices of cleansing the energy body and your living spaces of heavy energies. How to use the elements to balance yourself, and the use of ceremonial rituals of transmutation and gratitude. Participants will learn the meaning and navigation of the three worlds, Hanaq PachaKay Pacha and Ukju Pacha, as well as the four elements and four directions, animals and spirits of each direction.
