The Q’ero, a Quechua community in Peru who are direct descendants of the Inca, honor Mother Earth (Pachamama) and the mountain deities (Apus) as their sources of ancient wisdom. After centuries of isolation, these shamans have begun to descend from the top of the world to share their knowledge for the benefit of the planet and our healing. As Wisdom Keepers, they teach us how to live our lives in the moment, full of spirit, and how to shed a life bound by stress and “dis-ease.” They understand that surrounding each of us is a luminous energy that holds a record of our emotional, physical, and spiritual traumas, a blueprint that determines how we will live, heal, and even how we might die. As shamans, they work to bring balance to these fields.
During her talk, Dr. G will teach us an Illumination, or Chakra Cleansing Ritual, which she learned from her Q’ero elders.
