A Life-Affirming Path for Engaging in Our World


You’re well aware that we’re living in chaotic times, where so many of us are experiencing stress, depression, and a loss of life purpose on a daily basis. Additionally, fractures in our communities have left people feeling more scarcity than abundance, and more loneliness than authentic connection.

However, through rare personal connections with authentic master Shamans in The Andes Summit, you’ll restore the peace, love and healing that comes from being in intimate relationship with the great Web-of-Life.

In 2016, I promised my teacher, Taita Don José Joaquin Pinéda, I’d bring the sons and daughters of the Eagles — the people of the North — to learn from the sons and daughters of the Condors and their Yachaks–shamans/healers/wisdom keepers–in their own homes. Other Shamans (many teachers and friends of mine as well) enthusiastically embraced our vision. I’m thrilled that last June we successfully fulfilled this vision. This year again, join me and many other seekers from around the world in the consciousness revolution we are all part of. Together, utilizing the shaman’s guiding wisdom as a blueprint, we’ll create a strong global shamanic community for the sake of humanity and future generations on this miraculous planet.
