“The world of the Pachakuti Mesa Carrier is not a world to know, to study, grasp or gain insight into, but a world to live in, to participate in, to be part of, to collectively fashion, make, enhance, and co-create.” ~ don Oscar Miro-Quesada

A mesa is a living system of medicine work. It is the very heart of Peruvian Curanderismo. There are many different kinds of Mesas. As taught by don Oscar Miro-Quesada, the Mesa is a kind of altar and sacred medicine ground. The Pachakuti Mesa is a synthesis of Peruvian shamanic coastal traditions combined with southeastern Andean Paqokuna practices. As you progress through an apprenticeship and a series of initiations, you become a Mesa carrier. Your own Mesa will organically grow and evolve, reflecting your personal development as a practitioner of shamanic healing service.

There are several ways to become a mesa carrier

Mesa Evolution Video

This video is a photo diary taken during the 2014 Universal Shaman Advanced Intensive with don Oscar Miro-Quesada via the Shift Network. I was enthralled by the beauty that kept unfolding before me. What looked stagnant from the perspective of the moment, became an unfolding evolutionary story. May this visual story inspire you to create your own mesa.
