An unprecedented opportunity to develop your ability to use powerful shamanic tools in order to embody the inner transformation that unifies heaven and Earth...

Be prepared to profoundly awaken your heart, expand your mind, savor the divinity within all things – and advance on your journey as an agent of healing.

You have likely heard the prophecies of this time as ones in which the ancient wisdom of our indigenous brothers and sisters comes into harmonious relationship with Western cultures and begins to create the deeper Shift of the ages.

You feel the truth in this, as well as the healing potential.

You sense in your heart the great awakening power that indigenous shamanic traditions offer. You may have witnessed the humble, but powerful, presence of shamans.

You may have read the stories of their remarkable healing abilities. Perhaps you’ve even begun to study the practices for accessing other realms of consciousness for healing, divination and guidance.

The question is: How do you go beyond deep appreciation and become a full apprentice to the power of these traditions? How can you apply their healing wisdom, not only for your own life, but for those in your community – and our extended family of fellow Earth citizens?

Bringing Shamanic Wisdom to Your Modern Life

For most of us, it is not possible to engage in a long apprenticeship in remote forests or on mountain tops. Families and finances dictate that you can, at best, travel for a short period of time to work with shamans in their natural environment.

A weekend intensive may open you to the power of shamanic consciousness, but it’s in the long-term development of practices that shamanism really proves its worth on every level.

That is why we have created an 8-month virtual training with one of the most beloved and respected Peruvian curanderos, don Oscar Miro-Quesada. Don Oscar will be offering a powerful journey into the heart and soul of his Peruvian Pachakuti lineage, which offers a particularly powerful vision for our times – one that spans from cosmic understandings to specific personal healing practices.

He’ll also be showing how this lineage links with the work he has done with indigenous leaders globally to harvest the most useful practices for the modern world, which he calls “Universal Shamanism.”

Becoming a Universal Shaman is not a quick or easy path. It is truly a calling from Spirit to serve in a unique way, and often requires years of apprenticeship.

However, it is not necessary to walk the path for your entire life in order to receive profound benefit from the teachings and practices. You can be blessed, opened, healed and initiated in a virtual course of study and practice that takes you into living, breathing shamanic reality through the use of universal shamanic tools.

The Path of the Universal Shaman Advanced Intensive offers an in-depth program of study and practice that allows you to deeply understand the shamanic worldview, expand your ability to shift into shamanic consciousness and activate the healing power of many tools in your life.

It is a highly experiential program in which you will be an active co-creator of sacred ritual spaces, both with the full circle, as well as in your own life. It will go beyond inspiration into the teaching of specific shamanic skills that you can practice for a lifetime.

The Advanced Intensive is appropriate for seekers of authentic spiritual wisdom everywhere, and especially relevant for those who feel called to the healing arts. Learning to work with dreams, power objects, divination, ancestors and animal allies is relevant and important for you to understand – even when you are working in a more conventional context. The multi-dimensional aspects of shamanic practice can inform how you can best work with others.

How to Access Your Power as a Universal Shaman

At the root of the Advanced Intensive is the recognition that it is time to take shamans off a pedestal and understand that those same skills and qualities of being are available to YOU. You have, within you, seemingly miraculous powers and the same reverence that illuminates these beloved elders and visionaries.

And you can evoke these capacities in your life through the journey of becoming a Universal Shaman: one committed to the ONENESS of humanity and the healing of all the ancient rifts to restore wholeness.

While modern spiritual traditions each have their wisdom and beauty, our more ancient shamanic traditions have withstood the test of millennia – to give us access to the mystical dimensions of life, and live in a more harmonious way with ourselves and all our relations.

They speak a language of prayer and guidance, harmony and heart that is a balm for our modern souls – which are too often caught up in 24/7 activity and high-tech buzz.

As you develop the skills of a Universal Shaman, you will develop a profound ability to pierce the veil of reality, discover the hidden dimensions between the worlds – and then gather information and the support of unseen forces to restore health and vitality in your body and our communities.

You also expand your ability to connect with plant and animal allies and create rituals that re-weave the human family together.

By apprenticing in this virtual way with a shamanic lineage, you’ll begin to carry essential medicine for the 21st century – a time in which we are now called to form a global community of peace and shared understanding.

You will, in short, expand your abilities as a healer, both in your personal life and the lives of your community members.

You Have a Role in Fulfilling the Prophecies of This Era

Universal Shamanism offers a profound way to gain access to many indigenous lineages. In recent years, shamans and healers from different traditions are working together and recognizing a common core of understanding about life and how to live in a sacred way – an indigenous curriculum for human transformation.

The ancient prophecies of the reunification of Eagle and Condor speak to this meeting: Tribes from north to south, and east to west, are sharing their ancient wisdoms and finding their common vision. Groups like The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers are emerging that speak to the shared heart, intent and spirit of peoples around the world.

Quite simply, it is time for the emergence of universal shamans who draw from ancient roots of many cultures – and who can express the truth of ONE HUMANITY in new ways.

You don’t need to have native blood to be a Universal Shaman. All you need is the spirit of humility, reverence and an openness to learn the ancient ways – and apply them in the modern world in service to healing our history, integrating our shadows and expressing the light at our core.

As we learn to do this, we receive the chance as a global people to learn to live in harmony and holiness with each other.

Peruvian shaman and founder of the Heart of the Healer Foundation, don Oscar Miro-Quesada has emerged as one of the leading lights – pioneering this modern, yet ancient, path of universal shamanism.

Speaking humbly from his heart in a way that anyone can recognize as the “voice of the soul,” he creates rituals that draw from his Peruvian Pachakuti tradition and weave in wisdom of other peoples. He teaches us how to live in new, yet ancient, ways: connected with the daily blessings of life, filled with love and committed to acts of service.

don Oscar is a respected kamasqa curandero and altomisayoq adept from Peru, and co-author of Lessons in Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life.

His advanced studies in modern psychology have given him the tools to understand the common threads of shamanic teachings and weave them into an integrated framework for our times. He has worked with luminaries such as Barbara Marx Hubbard to blend ancient traditions with modern evolutionary understandings – to create a holistic, integral synthesis.

The result is a unique and beautiful gift to you that empowers you to harvest the most important insights, practices and perspectives of shamanism – and integrate them with modern psychological and spiritual teachings that contribute to the birth of the divine human in you.

If you want to go deeper into the essential spiritual wisdom held within indigenous shamanic traditions but are unable to spend months in remote rain forests or on mountain tops, this 8-month virtual training is your best opportunity to be in weekly communion with a powerful spiritual guide.

You will be exposed to powerful Peruvian Pachakuti practices designed for spiritual evolution and healing. These practices will help deepen your enjoyment of every moment, and access higher and lower realms for guidance and healing.

Taught within the larger context of Universal Shamanism, these practices reveal key threads of awakening, healing and wholeness that come to us from around the world.

You will connect with the “medicine” of particular Peruvian animals – from the hummingbird to the condor – and come to recognize humanity’s intricate, mystical relationship with the natural world. Universal Shamans develop this ability to learn from and observe the wisdom within animals so that they can access deeper gifts.

By the end of the 8 months, your identity as a Universal Shaman will be activated in a way that leads to shifts toward greater wholeness, wisdom and sacred depth. You will be more connected with the “sacred hoop” of all of life.

During the journey, you will also have the opportunity to engage in sacred ritual, discussion and practice with the global community that gathers for this 8-month, virtual apprenticeship.

Indigenous traditions recognize that all real healing happens through the community. So to be able to access such profound teachings from the comfort of your home – while still being in deep connection with a global community – is a true blessing.

What You’ll Discover in These 8 Months

Each LIVE teaching, practice and training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles you’ll need to engage universal shamanic teachings with clarity, rigor and transformative power.

The Behind: Mantle of Protection
(9/3, 9/10, 9/17)

In this module you will learn to call upon the assistance of guardian and protector spirits from near and far, and, in turn, move more peacefully in fulfillment of your transformational calling as a Universal Shaman. You’ll discover the shamanic shielding art of using reflective surfaces – such as the mirroring swath of Magi, Wizard and Shamanic Hierophant of days past, and how to honorably cloak yourself with the Mantle of Protection of THE BEHIND. You will be initiated into the mythical ways of Phoenix, Dragon and Feathered Serpent, so that all ill desire and intended harm is repelled 10-fold in power, sent back to the origin from whence it was cast forth. Such is the law of reciprocal causation that you begin mastering in this shamanic art of protection.

which comes from loss of faith.

– Franz Kafka

Module 5: Chinpapi Pusaypaq
The Before: Cresset of Guidance
(10/8, 10/15, 10/22)

In this module, you will learn to gaze trustingly into the great Unknown, arching forward with curious abandon and childlike surprise for what is yet to come. Learn to observe the world with patience and precision, distinguishing between that you can correct and that which you cannot. Beckoned by the serendipitous flight of Siwar Q’enti (Royal Hummingbird) you will align yourself to higher and deeper levels of being, and thereby, become part of them – accessing the Cresset of Guidance awaiting in THE BEFORE.

In the unfolding journey of your desired future, you will learn to seek guidance from the original Instructions received by our Turtle Island (North America) brothers and sisters. With each breath and heartbeat you will learn how to enter the true line of tradition, and awaken the shared beauty walk founded upon the infallible wisdom that “If it is not good for everyone, it is not good,” – which is our Seven Generation legacy.

Module 6: Lloqe Ch’uyanchaypaq
The Left: Crucible of Purification
(11/5, 11/12, 11/19)

There is nothing literally and metaphorically more purifying than clear, crystalline, unadulterated water born from the glacial streams, flowing from ancestrally venerated mountain tops, gathered from subterranean aquifers and untouched by the light of day. All ritual arts of purification also serve as baptism – a rebirth and renewal – a fresh discovery of Self in relationship to the vast ocean of our surrounding world. In this module, taking the lead from the primal aquatic dance of Dolphin and Whale, which purifies our human senses, you will learn to transform the toxicity of your past through the Crucible of Purification in THE LEFT.

Module 7: Paña Kallpapaq
The Right: Scepter of Power
(12/3, 12/10, 12/17)

As we further welcome the universality of shamanism as an evolutionary gift to humankind, we simultaneously acknowledge the primacy of consciousness behind the phenomenal world. All learning is a constant process of becoming, and all knowledge an ongoing state of being – that when brought into sacred partnership – allows your experience of healing to be revealed as a dynamic restoration of harmony and balance in life. This is the medicine way of Puma and Jaguar, tutelary animal custodians that embody the life-affirming blessings of Taita Inti (Father Sun), whose befriending honors the Scepter of Power bestowed from THE RIGHT.

  • Introduction to the ethnospiritual worldview – which has informed the pre-Inka, Inka and contemporary mestizo healing traditions of Kamasaqa Curanderismo

The Within: Altar of Re-Membering
(1/7, 1/14, 1/21)

As Universal Shamans initiated into the soul-infused cosmovision of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, you will learn to walk a beauty path of teaching love by the way you live. Serving the great web of life you embody the nobility of the Llama and Alpaca. Such is your medicine, the fertile garden where the progression of your soul is in blossom, where the light from Above is received without shadow upon the Below.

Your Story becomes about trusting soul; your Journey about honoring spirit; your Truth about opening heart; your Power about transforming mind; your Service about healing body; your Legacy about awakening belongingness; our Destiny about evolving presence. These Seven Pillars of perennial wisdom can now find exquisite expression as the mystical Sacred Cube, the Altar of our Re-Membering and universal revelation of THE WITHIN.

Wisdom Transmissions:

  • Mastering the five C’s of Ceremony used in Pachakuti Mesa Tradition cross-cultural shamanism
  • Advanced guidance on the multiple uses of a Misarumi as an Axis Mundi (hyperspace portal, Center Pole, etc.) as a passageway between all three shamanic worlds


  • Embodying sacred reciprocity (Ayni) as the “law of right returns” and balanced dualism behind all shamanic ritual practice
  • Using one’s Misarumi (PMT Center piece) as a means of transmitting our Universal Shaman lineage to open-hearted trusted others

Advanced Shamanic Tool:

  • The creation of a Curandero’s Ofrenda (Shamanic Give-Away) – an unconditional offering of a love-infused medicine gift for the world

Sacred space is where reverence constructs the future more and better than where reverence sings nostalgia for the past.

– Paulo Soleri

the body dances, the universe celebrates, the Self, as World, benefits...
such is the healing journey of a Universal Shaman.

The Role of Shamanism in Shifting Our World
Audio dialogue with don Oscar Miro-Quesada and
John Perkins – Hosted by Stephen Dinan

In this special session, hosted by Shift Network Founder and CEO Stephen Dinan, Oscar is joined by bestselling author, teacher and shamanic practitioner John Pekins to explore how Shamanism can support the evolutionary shifting of our world. Drawing on their decades of experience as students of shamans around the world and as teachers, John and Oscar will illuminate the power of shamanic consciousness to not only transform your own life, but also impact the entire world.

John Perkins has lived four lives: as an economic hit man (EHM); as the CEO of a successful alternative energy company, who was rewarded for not disclosing his EHM past; as an expert on indigenous cultures and shamanism, a teacher and writer who used this expertise to promote ecology and sustainability, while continuing to honor his vow of silence about his life as an EHM; and as a writer who, in telling the real-life story about his extraordinary dealings as an EHM, has exposed the world of international intrigue and corruption that is turning the American republic into a global empire despised by increasing numbers of people around the planet.

Why the Hottest Word in Religion is "Shaman"
Audio Dialogue from NPR’s Interfaith Voices
with don Oscar and Stephan Beyer

Shamanism – the ancient art of healing by entering an altered state of consciousness – has become a powerful spiritual buzzword. There are workshops, therapy sessions, seminars and $2,000 shamanic healing trips to the Amazon. You can diet with the Shamanic Juice Fast, wear shaman-chic couture or join a Meetup group like "Tribe of Beltway Shamans." In this special recording from NPR’s Interfaith Voices series, Oscar and Stephan Beyer explore what Shamanism is – and isn’t – and why it’s enjoying a cultural revival.

Steve Beyer is a scholar, adventurer, and expert on both jungle survival and plant hallucinogens. He is the author of Singing to the Plants, "the best book on ayahuasca yet" and "the most comprehensive examination of Amazonian shamanism ever written." Steve studied wilderness survival among the indigenous peoples of North and South America, and sacred plant medicine with traditional herbalists in North America and curanderos in the Upper Amazon, where he studied the healing plants with doña Maria Tuesta Flores and received coronacion by banco ayahuasquero don Roberto Acho Jurama.

Blood of the Condor Video
Origins and Practice of Northern Peruvian Shamanism

In this fascinating documentary-style video, Italian historian, anthropologist, archaeologist and ethnographer Dr. Mario Polia brings you an up-close look at the practices of Northern Peruvian shamans. The shaman and his people’s deep connection to the land, the healing power of plants, as well as the importance of the wisdom of the ancestors and ritual, are all revealed. This is an opportunity to see firsthand how that which is held sacred throughout the ages – and with clear intention – maintains its power to heal.

What Universal Shamanism Students are Saying...

I am always amazed at what unfolds within me and in connection with others when I choose to "show up and be fully present" as don Oscar is fond of saying. I heard the sacred voice within me:, "Take a deep breath, step in (sign up!),and listen with your heart,open; this is the next opportunity to dive deep into the Great Work you are committed to doing". Through this course I have deepened my knowing of the connectedness of all things, of how I can integrate these practices into my daily life and be of better service. In my demanding job setting, I have been able to maintain a more centered approach to problem solving and crisis resolution by committing to "walk the talk" and work with the Pachakuti Mesa as a focal point for my spiritual exploration and evolution. don Oscar is a compassionate, loving and dedicated teacher who has the ability to distill the knowledge to its’ most simple and profound form for our spiritual nourishment.
– Nina Ray, Ohio USA

I am adopted Ojibwa by the reservation I worked on for years. In this Earthwalk I have been an art therapist, Native Trauma Therapist, Shamanic Reiki Practioner, studied with the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers which is an Ordination program with the Center for Sacred Studies. This is how I found out about the course. Auspiciously I felt drawn to build a mesa for my father whom is in hospice. I read LESSONS ON COURAGE in one day and signed up for don Oscar’s class the next day. His words and teachings are healing and I will integrate the Mesa practice and being a pachakuti carrier in my daily walking prayer. I look forward to advanced teachings from don Oscar Miro to help me navigate this living reality and remember my true calling is to work for and serve Pachamama and my family, community, loved ones, strangers and self. I am so very grateful for this course. Chi Miigwich don Oscar and the Shift Network for using modern technology to teach us the Original Ways.
– Donna Alena Hrabcakova, Red Lake Nation MN.

This has been a fabulous and fascinating course with Don Oscar and all of the supporting faculty.

My own teachings have elevated as a result of my studies in the program, I have expanded in a most beautiful way. In peace, love and deepest gratitude.

More Praise for don Oscar Miro-Quesada...

Oscar is a warm, loving human being who deeply cares about people and our planet and has an infectious belly laugh. He is a master at creating sacred community using the magic of joy, love and compassion as the strands that gently weave us together as a planetary family.
Envision This, blogtalkradio.

As he writes in Lessons in Courage, his new, beautifully conceived and written book, don Oscar has been preparing his whole life to serve as a healer. His skills and vision as a Shamanic healer are rooted in profound life experience and a passionate commitment to service. Oscar exudes compassion and caring, generosity and kindness. He is a teacher who walks his talk.
– A. Rose

Through meticulous attention and expansive consciousness, don Oscar sets up a dynamic ceremonial field in which healing energies readily blossom. The creation of this subtle energy field, the intention behind it, the connection with spiritual allies, and the ceremonial acts within it, are part of a dance with spirit which release restrictive energies and result in ’healing with grace.’ Anybody who wants to experience profound sacred space and who wishes to participate in the creation of it, will find this to be a magical experience – concrete in the form of ritual undertaking and transcendent in manifesting the potentialities of healing on multiple levels and throughout dimensions.
V. Hoch

Oscar is a wonderful teacher, an honorable human being and a genuine soul who knows no politics about what he does or who he is. It is always a respite to be in his presence and among seeking sisters and brothers who desire the same qualities in life.
A. Bennett

Oscar is the best expression of love – he lives it, and through his example, we all learn more about what love really is all about. I am truly grateful for his commitment to serving humanity.
K. Blaesing, Ph.D., CCC-SLP

I recognize in you a man of Christ Consciousness whose depth and breadth of soul and profound richness of what you do as service to others is an astounding gift to the world. How you personally have touched my body, heart, mind, and soul is transformative at the deepest level.
– Sarah, Maine

Thank you Oscar for your open heart, compassionate words and actions, and clear presence. These beautiful qualities, which you share so generously are essential in creating a loving, sacred circle where our combined light and gifts could flow freely to each other and to our dear Mother Earth. I will remember always how you emphasized love and how you stated that there is no beauty without truth and no truth without beauty.
– Ava.

Thank you Oscar for an amazing experience. Your brand of “sacred lunacy” is amazing beyond words. You are an intuitive alchemist/wizard/mystic like the ones of long ago.
– B. Vetter

I so enjoyed the experience of being with don Oscar. His intense focus and sometimes playful, sometimes serious replies to questions all demonstrate that he is a true master of the art of living.
– Dr. Janet Smith Warfield, author of Shift: Change Your Words, Change Your World
