Happy New Year beloved THOTH community!

May your hopes and dreams manifest themselves in their full beauty in this good year. 

This month we are celebrating the power of connection. WEDNESDAY NIGHT LINK UP is a Basic PMT Practice which allows us to join our mesas worldwide into a single concentrated intention of global power for the healing of Pachamama as well as the collective psyche. Link Up can be practiced individually, as we sit at our own Pachakuti Mesas, or collectively, enhancing the intentions of individuals within the group. As a weekly practice, Link Up provides the time to deepen one’s experience and relationship with the Mesa. Whether performed in circle or alone, Link Up offers a rich ‘meeting’ with this tradition, a way of converging self and lineage. The power that is being harnessed and transmitted is deep and sentient nourishment for the Earth.

Whether you already host or attend a Wednesday Night Link Up or you are new to the practice, we invite you to explore a document entitled Global Wednesday Night Link Up Ritual found on our website Ritual Art s Basic Practices page. In addition, you may enjoy this insightful article by Writer’s Forum contributor Rev. Stephanie Red Feather, PhD: Open Your Mesa, Open to Love . Let’s connect. See you Wednesday!

Praises for the Five-part Apprenticeship

Receiving the material in person is so exciting and resonates at a deep and profound level when together in circle with other community members. Witnessing and performing consecration of the mesa and artes, limpias and kawsay delivery was very rewarding and anchored the knowledge in me. If you want to take it to the next level, I recommend an in-person apprenticeship to anyone who has taken an on-line course. ~Kimberly June  

I am transformed completely after finishing the Five-part Apprenticeship in the Pachakuti Mesa tradition. Connecting to the deep history of this lineage has healed the parts of me that were disconnected, distracted, lonely or broken. This apprenticeship has given me words for truths that I have always instinctively KNOWN and given me a community of family who understand the world in the same way. It has given me practical tools to ground, release and seek guidance and connection. My path of service is clear now, I feel empowered to follow it with joy, wisdom and support. ~Alaina Hernandez

I experienced profound shifts after participating in the PMT apprenticeship. The PMT is the only tradition that consistently manifests transformations in my life. The fullness and magic I feel in these circles is unparalleled and real. ~Stefi P.

Wednesday, January 9th
A Call for Yin Leadership In his book, A New Republic of the Heart, Terry Patten introduced the idea of the ‘yin hero’, a feminine model of leadership. It expresses not the yang masculine dominating capacities of the warrior hero, but the heroic humility and care associated with saints. Join Terry for a FREE 60-minute online teaching event, in which he will share wisdom you can use to activate this kind of leadership in your life, and about how we all can bring it to bear on behalf of the human future. This uplifting event will bring you hope for the future of humanity as well as a path toward your own personal empowerment.
