Befriending Our Ancient Present: Shamanic Wisdom on Adopting Ancestors for Healing and Spiritual Evolution

Broadcast on February 01, 2023
With don Oscar Miro-Quesada
Hosted by Lisa Bonnice

According to don Oscar Miro-Quesada, among the many spirit helpers and ancestral tutelary allies known to Peruvian curandersimo, there's a class of beings called the Machula Awlanchis, our Benevolent Old Ones. They are those venerated wisdom keepers, teachers, and healers who once walked this earth in human form. Like the noblest of Bodhisattvas, they can be called upon to assist all earnest shamanic practitioners. Experience a journey of communion with these ancestral spirit helpers in service to the great work.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The mythic, animistic worldview of Peru's pre-Columbian civilizations as a contact portal with our Benevolent Old Ones
  • Propitiating the assistance of these shamanic ancestors through Mihushanku (ritual feedings) and consecrating ceremonial space 
  • A visionary journey through time and space where a human-made offering is revealed as an act of sacred reciprocity and a gift
