« September 2018 Community News & Events »

Dearest THOTH Community,

AUTUMN EQUINOX GREETINGS! Welcome to the September issue of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition newsletter. This month please check our THOTH calendar often because we are adding Equinox gatherings as we receive them. There very well could be a ceremony near you! And if you are inspired to offer a place to gather, to build an apacheta, create a despacho or honor Inti and Pachamama in any way your heart calls, please email Michele and she will add your event to the community calendar. 

This is a powerful time to consciously work with balancing polarities. Consider wearing black on top and white on the bottom on the day of the Equinox. Be aware of the small ways you can restore balance and harmony to yourself, your community and Pachamama. Have fun, use your imagination and grow corn and potatoes doing this time of harvesting the knowledge of the light and the dark. 

Pachakuti Mesa Tradition gatherings: Please check your region in the THOTH calendar as events will be added during the month! 

Wednesday Night Link-Up gatherings this month are being offered in Fl ori da | New Mexico | Utah | Virginia and also online. Check your region as more may be added.

Sacred Retreats include  Continuing the Conversation: Destination Manifestation at Highlands, NC sponsored by the Qollasuyu | Fall Equinox Amazon Immersion with Mona Rain in Peru and Transformational Journey to the Sacred Valley, Peru with Alan Waugh and Susan Bookman. 

Autumn Equinox blessings to each of you,
Cindy, Xio mara, Marin and Michele
‟Touch the sky and kiss the earth as a being of light.”

Featured Teacher

Yola Dunne’s presence within the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition community has been growing steadily since 2014. She was introduced to the PMT via the virtual waves by taking don Oscar’s first Shift Network course – Path of the Universal Shaman. She was intrigued by the class and decided to sign up. Little did she know it would be the start of a deep apprenticeship and immersion into the beauty and transformative power of the PMT. Although she never planned to become a sanctioned teacher she now realizes that it was life’s plan for her all along.

Yola has extensive experience in the natural health field, mysticism, and shamanism which have been her life-long passions. Her devotion to nature and to the ways of wisdom have helped awaken her innate medicine gifts of restoring beauty and wholeness to the people that are drawn to her for learning and healing. To sacred circle she brings her skills of observation, ceremonial adeptness, sensitivity and intuitive sense of the unseen world, and passion for deep healing and transformation.

Yola lives and works in the beautiful Gatineau hills of the Ottawa Valley. You will also find her at the dojo, training and teaching Krav Maga, Combat Jiu-Jitsu, and kickboxing.

Yola is thrilled to offer the Five-Part Apprenticeship Series in her home town of Chelsea, Québec. Part I, The Call to Heal, starts in October.
