« October 2018 Community News & Events »

Beloved THOTH Community,

AYLLU: Derived from the Quechua language used by the Inka culture of Peru, ayllu refers to local members of an extended family united by a common purpose as sustainers of sacred trust between humans and the natural world. If you are a member of a local group of mesa-carriers who gather for equinox, solstice, new and/or full moon or Wednesday Night Link-Up, and would like to be listed on the THOTH website, please email cindy@heartofthehealer.org. We can list you on our Global Contacts page so others in your area can find you. Also, if you would like to start an ayllu there are guidelines you can download. Yet all it really takes is a willingness to invite people to join you at your mesa and we can get that announcement in our monthly newsletters and online calendar!

The new moon is October 8 and the full moon is October 24 which is also a Wednesday. These are perfect days to begin. You can do it!

Featured Teacher

Camping and immersing herself in the outdoors since she was a young girl, Jnana’s ongoing dance with the natural world guided her to the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition in 2009. The day after her first ceremony with don Oscar when he shared the medicine of his condor feather, Jnana was driving the precipice of the Pacific Ocean and was graced by seven condors flying overhead. This nod from Spirit let her know that Oscar was her guide and the PMT was her new path.

She has always been a seeker, and through her extensive studies in psychotherapy, intensive programs such as the Hoffman Institute, Rosen Method Body Work, Reiki Attunement, a 12 step program, communication classes, many Hatha yoga trainings, and a 3+ year apprenticeship with healer/author Mateo Magee, her seeking lead her serendipitously to a path of service as a Sanctioned Teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition.

The honor of being a Sanctioned Teacher keeps Jnana in right alignment with her life’s purpose, to share the ancient lineage wisdom, beautiful processes and transmissions to other seekers. She is grateful to be of service and to witness the transformation in others as they deepen into themselves and into the mother of us all, our Pachamama. 

Jnana is very excited to offer a retreat-style 5-Part Apprenticeship beginning in January 2019. Part I, The Call to Heal, will be in the San Francisco Bay Area at aptly named Spirit House, which is soaking in beauty!
