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 a virtual training, designed to be completed over eight months, 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. 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 such as 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 weaves 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 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 virtual training is your best opportunity to apprentice 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 program, 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.
What You’ll Discover in This Program
Each 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.

What Graduates of The Path of the Universal Shaman Advanced Intensive are Saying…
I have studied with many teachers over a lot of years, and learned important things from most of them. Some of those teachers have made significant changes in how I see and experience the world. But this training with don Oscar Miro-Quesada has been the deepest and most comprehensive I have ever experienced; it has brought me from a somewhat detached, intellectual understanding to truly living the path and the work at all levels of my being. I have much, much gratitude for don Oscar and for the marvelous support system provided by the Shift Network to make it all possible in cyberspace. Munay!
– Judy Steele, Minnesota
The course is highly recommended for a spiritual journey that takes place in a most unusual setting “online”. I was not sure how powerful and moving it would be. However, the journey has been profound and deep. This course has instilled in me a depth of understanding that encompasses the grounded practical techniques and applications of this shamanic tradition. Additionally don Oscar Miro Quesada masterfully, enables one to part the veils between worlds when he conducts transmissions and journeys. The movement into these realms imparts deep spiritual nurturance, connection and resourceful information. His effusive love and passion for this community is apparent in every communication. I am grateful for this teacher, this course and this community.
– Phyllis, Long Island, NY
I can’t even write a proper testimonial… It would be five pages long and I would cry while writing the whole thing. I have been so deeply changed, touched and shifted from this program with Don Oscar that… well there are no words. My life is forever new. My eyes see so much more now. My enthusiasm to continue this work dances with in me like the flame in the East of my Pachakuti Mesa. My connection to the natural world has expanded beyond what my heart could conceive previous to this course… I have been left with my mouth hanging open after every lesson and in awe of the lessons. Don Oscar has been vital to the confirmation of living joyously at my sacred altar. I am forever changed, forever grateful.
– Cathy Mines, Toronto, Canada
I have had four other shamanic teachers who were all gifted, brilliant, caring people. Yet, there is something that don Oscar creates that is an alchemical mix of wisdom teachings, a compassionate and open heart, a generous spirit and childlike playful wonder that washed over me and swept me away to a dreamworld where I might re-member the truth of who I am, who we all are. There was the discipline of doing and the rigor of being. I was humbled and I was lifted. It is such a blessing to be with a community that truly cares about our divinity and our earth walk and the generations to come. Thank you!
– Kathy Loh, Nevada City, CA
Every now and again I meet a teacher who transcends the intellect and carries me to a deeper place where transformation occurs and wisdom is imparted beyond the grasp of my clutching mind. Don Oscar Miro Quesada is one of those teachers. His grounded and heart-felt presence and commitment to all of us carried me to deeper places than I could have imagined. The community he built is beyond anything I have experienced in courses before. I have arrived here: fully, to be human at last: no more escaping: no more trying to be something I am not: don Oscar’s work has brought me fully into my body, through it to the stars and back again: anchored solidly here in the earth.
– Alistair Smith, Shoalwater, Australia
This has to be one of the most life changing courses I have undertaken. I not only come to the completion of the course with a whole range of new skill, insights, ritualistic practices but such a deep love and connection with a whole group of other participants, my allyu. I feel such profound love for don Oscar he is and always will be my beloved teacher. A real testament to this work is that so many of us are going to continue our apprenticeship by starting at the beginning and doing the course all over again.
I am in love with the Medicine of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition, originated by don Oscar Miro-Quesada, because it offers itself as ‘neutral’ ground for all Relations to come together to restore the balanced, harmonious movement of Peace upon Our Beloved Mother. Not in a million years did I expect this could happen, in this lifetime. I extend my deepest gratitude and love to don Oscar and doña Cindy for their exquisite mirroring of the Medicine – they offer themselves so selflessly to remind us all ’Who is really doing the reflecting.’
– Xiomara Bell, Salt Lake City, UT
Where do I begin? Each module brought so many multi-dimensional shifts and gifts, awarenesses that happen in each moment in each re-membering of EVERY sacred breath. The breath I breathe for my children, and my children’s children, and the next 7 generations of ALL of Pachamama’s sentient beings. My work on the shamanic path has become more integrated, more focused and I feel enormously supported by the ayllu of these sacred teachings and we share our lives and journeys. I am truly, truly humbled to receive these lineages and teachings from such a gifted soul and maestro, don Oscar Miro-Quesada!

More Praise for don Oscar Miro-Quesada…
This course with don Oscar Miro-Quesada has far exceeded any expectation. His unbounded generosity of heart, excellence as a teacher – his sensitivity and compassion as a human being – all are truly rare. This course has offered an amazing stretch: While soaring towards the furthest stratosphere or explaining detailed ritual practices and arcane ways of practical nature, don Oscar has never once – in all these months – neglected our human wounds and needs. Quite the contrary. He has worked with these in depth, giving them great attention – and teaching in specific ways how to work with them. Witnessing him reply to the smallest and most basic questions and concerns, while always responding to questions about overwhelmingly difficult life issues of students has been deeply moving. His life experience – decades of training in the traditions of indigenous culture – have been seamlessly interwoven with a universal outlook allows a person from any background to feel at home and able to receive this well-spring of learning. This has been a marvelous course! Thank you!
– Celia “Harini” Candlin, New York, NY
Don Oscar’s authenticity, humanity, wisdom and knowledge are rare, perhaps unparalleled. The utility of what he teaches, its practicality, scope, breadth and depth extend to the essence of an individual, as well as to the reaches of ethereal realms. As mentioned, it is imminently practical for a World that needs Love and Evolving Human Consciousness. This is a true path of power, of service and of attainment, individualized for each person who accepts the responsibility of becoming. If you want to live in Magic and Awe, take this course!
– Steve Guettermann, Bozeman, MT
I have been stretched way beyond my comfort level in my day to day thinking. This is a good thing as I tend to get in ruts and not evolve the way I would like. This has been a huge evolving in every aspect of my life. I feel that I am so more comfortable with being uncomfortable and this has long been a goal of mine. I no longer only see what is obvious — I see and feel way past the obvious. Thank you don Oscar and The Shift Network.
– Rev. Nancy McNeely, Amesbury, MA

– Therese Yonikus, Warrenville, IL
This course was an incredible challenge to long-held narrow, rigid, and misery-producing beliefs about myself, the world, and God and a joyful opening to a vast interior and exterior world of beauty, goodness, love, and freedom that I was afraid and somewhat cynical could ever be in this life. It gives me courage to continue with a lighter heart. The courage of don Oscar to dedicate his life with such passion to the best of what can be in this world is an inspiration to me. It is a profound privilege to have studied with him.
– Sarah, Maine
My mesa became my loving other, always providing spiritual sustenance and wisdom beyond imagination. I have always done many ceremonies and I have learned to surrender even more to the wisdom of my soul and to apply the many techniques we learned during the course. The wonderful online community with its sincerity and openness helped me to step into vulnerability and strength at the same time. I had many peak experiences during don Oscar’s wonderful initiations, experiences which I will never forget and which guide my steps to live my true magnificence in humble service. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the miracle of these 9 months together and the shining baby that was born.

This Tradition has blessed my life and taught me to see with my heart. With Joy,
– D’oro, Tarrytown, NY
don Oscar is a truly gifted teacher who is deeply connected to this cosmovision of Pachakuti Mesa Tradition and his ancestral lineage yet expands the heart so that this shamanic path can be embraced by anyone who is willing to connect with the energies of peace and love as explored through use of ceremonial ritual with the Pachakuti Mesa. Yes, I can truly say this work has expanded my essence and grounded me. Definitely that helps us truly understand ALL OUR RELATIONS and a way to continue to embody the love we have for Mother Earth as a sacred living being who is ascending as we are. It teaches about the spirit in everything, the divine sacred within and without with pristine and pureness of heart as he genuinely connects to his students with an uplifting song to unite us all, transcend differences and know why we are here at this time as we embody the Great Work into our lives.
