INDIGINOUS CULTURES / SHAMANISM

“The Q’ero have preserved a path for which many in the modern world hunger and thirst--how to participate in a world of living energies.”
William Sullivan, author of The Secret of the Incas

“Treats the beliefs and religion of the Quechua people with profound feeling and a deep identification seldom seen.”
Jorge A. Flores Ochoa, professor of anthropology, National University of Cuzco, Peru

“A treasury of shamanic knowledge and practices whose insights into an ancient wisdom can help those of us living in a modern society find attunement with nature and harmony within ourselves.”
Kenneth Meadows, author of Shamanic Experience

Known as the “keepers of the ancient knowledge,”the Q’ero Indians of Peru are the most respected mystics of the south-central Andes. In 1996 Joan Parisi Wilcox traveled to the Andes and was able to record the mysteries of kawsay pacha, the multidimensional world of living energy, through intensive interviews with six Q’ero paqos, masters of the ancient spiritual traditions of Peru.

The Q’ero are known for having preserved the Inca spiritual tradition more purely than any other indigenous population in the Andes. The in-depth interviews presented in this book recount the direct words of these masters so readers can discover for themselves the mind and heart space of these people. Several chapters focus on the work of the mesa, the Andean form of a spiritual medicine bundle, and its use as a conduit for the healing energies of nature. The mesa is called the “heart’s fire”because it represents the finest energy--the energy of compassion--that a paqo cultivates while walking the sacred path. An Andean paqo provides instructions on how to make, activate, and work with a mesa, and Wilcox provides other practical exercises showing how we can use the power of the Andean spiritual tradition in our own lives.

JOAN PARISI WILCOX has been studying the spiritual arts of Peru since 1993 and has received the rites of the Q’ero and other Andean masters. She is the author of Ayahuasca: The Visionary and Healing Powers of the Vine of the Soul and has published articles in Shaman’s Drumand Magical Blend. She lives in North Carolina.

paititi, September 10, 2010 (view all comments by paititi)
Q'ero is an essential component of the Paititi/Paytiti legend, one that is still in the process of being fully investigated for its real-life existence possibilities. For that reason, and the general interest that Q'ero--both before and after the 1955 visit of Dr. Oscar Núñez del Prado that brought it to the attention of the outside world--holds, this book warrants attention.
