“The sanction to teach the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition by don Oscar Miro-Quesada and the lineage in 2009 has been a glorious gift and I am very grateful. Among the many joys of teaching this tradition is the opportunity to witness participants heal, transform and empower themselves through experiencing its profound wisdom teachings and powerful initiations into the shamanic arts. The Pachakuti Mesa lays out before us a portal into the Universe, the Three Worlds and All That Is. This helps us reconnect to the sacred within and without as we expand our consciousness and experience realities beyond what we can ordinarily perceive. Through Earth-honoring ceremony and an apprenticeship with ayni – sacred reciprocity – we deepen our relationships with Nature, Mother Earth, the Unseen World and all of Creation. This tradition’s teachings and its lineage ancestors, who come forward to support us, help us serve ourselves, our families, our communities and the Earth. How fortunate are we to be Pachakuti Mesa carriers!”

For 20 years Cynthia Greer has been privileged to be an apprentice of don Oscar, the Unseen World and the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. This has led her on a journey of profound personal transformation as well as extensive travel in Peru and the Americas to work with many shamans, wisdom keepers and indigenous healers. From 2007-2009 Cynthia contributed to the creation of the THOTH Five-Part Apprenticeship Series. She has been a supporting teacher in several of don Oscar’s online courses and serves as a member of the PMT Teacher Mentorship Council. Cynthia is dedicated to sharing the shamanic arts to help people grow and transform, to loving service to the Great Mystery and Mother Earth as well as to grandmotherhood of her glorious grandchildren, Emily age 6 and Silas age 3. 
Cynthia lives near Ashevile in Leicester, NC, in the oldest mountains on the Earth, where she offers basic and advanced shamanic training, private healing sessions and Earth-honoring ceremony.

Cynthia is starting a new Five-Part Apprenticeship Series in Leicester, NC this month,
and in Surbiton, UK, February 18-23, 2019. (This week near London includes parts 1-3 of the series.)
