The Four Winds Shamanic Journeys
In these four sessions, you will learn about the ways of the Andean Shamans, the power animals that represent each direction, and how each animal can empower you on your journey. In our first session, you will learn about the serpent and how it can teach you to shed your skin and let go of the past. In the second session, you will learn about the Jaguar and how you can walk in life with no fear! The third session will focus on the Hummingbird, where you will learn about the sweetness of life and its lessons of perseverance and patience. In our fourth session, you will learn about the condor and how it can teach you to rise above and see the greater picture of life, and from this higher place, you can make better-informed decisions.
The Q’eros are direct descendants of the Incas, and each of our sessions are based upon the Q’ero tradition. You will gain insights into their history and lineage, which will help you better understand their healing modalities. In each session you will experience a shamanic journey.
Week 1 – October 1, 2021 • South Serpent
It is customary to call this an Underworld. In this journey you will venture to the Underworld to recover an old contract that may be holding you back. Once recovered through this journey, you can release yourself from the contract’s grip and become free of previous patterns that are held within it.
Week 2 – October 8, 2021 • West Jaguar
This journey will help you establish your everyday reality so that you can clarify a new way of walking in this world and set new personal goals. You will learn to discern between fear and intuition as the jaguar teaches no fear in this world or the next.
Week 3 – October 15, 2021 • North Hummingbird
The hummingbird teaches us about the sweetness of life. Hummingbirds migrate from Florida to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico; this is a 2 1/2 thousand mile journey! The hummingbird will teach you perseverance, courage, and how to believe in yourself no matter how long your journey may be.
Week 4 – October 22, 2021 • East Condor
The condor will teach you how to fly high above your everyday life and from there make better informed decisions. In this session the condor will remind you that you are always connected to the Divine, just like the condor that flies wing to wing with the great spirit. By rising above, the condor will help you better see your future destiny line.
