Shamanic Training & Initiations into Peruvian Mysticism
in Vermont Sacred Sites 

Shamanic Training & Initiations into the Living Energies,
and Living Relations with,
Earth Energies, and the Awakening of our Essence,
or our Potential 'Seed' of Being

Drawing deeply from the Hatun Karpay, or Great Initiations,
of the Qero Indians of Peru
and shamanic teachings arising from throughout the Americas

This program Incorporates the Qero "Karpay" initiations
into the '4th Level Priesthood' of Qero traditions,
reaching our potential as human beings.
The Q’ero believe it is reaching this potential that will be a catalyst for humanity
to arise into the Collective Awakening of this time, which they call, the Taripay Pacha,

“The Time of Meeting Our Selves Again!”

This work evolves, as the enlightened work of the ancient Incas and indigenous peoples of North America has always evolved.  The name "Inca", literally means, "the enlightened one."
The Inca practices of awakening the Luminous Being of one's spiritual potential has survived through the aeons, through the teachings and initiations of the Qero Indians of Central Peru.  The Q'ero, direct descendants of the Incas, protected their sacred wisdom in remote, high mountain villages, undisturbed by Western Civilization for the last 500 years.  They were 'rediscovered' by Western civilization in the 1950's.  The Q'ero say that these initiations are an integral part of what is happening in humanity at this time of the Taripay Pacha, their prophecied time of the Great Awakening, which they call, "The Time of Meeting OurSelves Again."  They, literally, are speaking of becoming whole, meeting our true nature, or self, awakening our potential, into what they refer to, as, a "Flower of Blossoming Joy."  To enter Living Relations with the Living Energies of the Earth and Cosmos is a necessary aspect of this Great Awakening, according to their prophecies and traditions.  These practices, also, are directly related to these prophecies, and their understanding of our true awakening to our authentic nature, and how to come into that potential.

The Elder teachings of Native North America also speak to this time of transformation, and Great Awakening.  The coming together of the teachings of North and South Americas is known as the Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor.  This is said to have occurred in the 1990's, as Elders from both regions gathered together again, for the first times in modern history.

Over time, the nature of the prophecy of the re-union of
the ways of Medicine of the Eagle and Condor has come more and more to light. 
This teaching, also, involves the rekindling not just of the ancient ways of peoples, of connecting Heart and Mind, but, also, of the reconnecting of ancient 'grids' of earth energy, mountain regions, and other places of worship and work of the Ancient Ones. 
This body of work incorporates essence of teaching of North and South Indigenous teachings, and real experience with the medicines, ancestral beings, and Apus (conscious earth based spirit beings, such as the spirits of mountains, lakes, rivers, trees, stones).  Participants, literally, are offered the opportunity to meet these living Spirits, and learn proven methodology to enter and continue relationships with these living beings.

This program
will, also, incorporate deeper mystery of the unfolding tapestry of the union of Sacred forces of the Divine Masculine and Feminine energies as they compel and weave life manifest on Earth; the tapestry of the ancient ways and connecting earth energy grids and currents of energy (what are known as the Dragon Currents in other cultures, ley lines, or serpentine energies of the Earth, telluric currents in modern science.)   The program, also, incorporates the pathway of the new awakening of consciousness, as outlined by the Q'ero, what these Inca descendants, call "Taripay Pacha,"  or,"the Time of Meeting Ourselves Again." 
We shall work with the real teachings, energies, and emerging transformative knowing of the ancient cultures, the star beings, and others, guiding this work.  As well as, receive transmissions from the lineage carriers of the teachings.
We shall incorporate the Q'ero Karpay Initiations, into the Fourth Level of Priesthood, in the Incan traditions.  This is a level of communion with the Living Energies of the Earth, and awakening of our own "Seed of Potential," which they say is necessary, for a particular number of humanity to achieve, in order to make safe passage through this Taripay Pacha, this TIme of Meeting Ourselves Again.  Many know this through the Maya prophecies of 2012, which include the Galactic Alignments, and what they call "the End of Time as we Know It,"
meaning the end of one era, and the awakening of a new one, for all humanity.  Indigenous elders of many cultures weave their teachings and prophecies together, as they understand this IS the Time of Re-awakening, and Re-emerging of the ancient ways, in union with the current.
Zacciah's Elders have asked him to pass these initiations on, as they understand more of us have need to enter these Living Relations, and will support this New Awakening.  He has been asked to incorporate the wisdom which has arisen from entering in these Living Relations with aspects of the Elements of Earth and Sky, in ancient ceremonial sites, and natural Earth Power sites, through the past 35 years of experience in these regions.

These practices were, also, designed, to be offered in natural energy power sites, and ancient ceremonial sites, which mimic the energies available in the ancient traditional ceremonial sites in Peru, where they have been offered since before recorded time in that region.  This was over seen by high wisdom keepers of the Q'ero traditions, before being passed down to Zacciah, who was asked to carry them forward, in the manner he has done.  So far as we know, though they have been offered in Vermont for over a decade, this was, literally, the first places these Karpay practices were offered outside of Peru.

Come, and see how you can participate in this sacred awakening.

The Dineh people of the American Southwest (Navajo Indians) have a word for "healing" which means "to Return to Beauty."
This concept embraces the idea that, to come into healing, or wholeness, we must rediscover, cherish, and honor the Beauty of ourselves, of each other, and the world around us.  Part of that path includes stepping into a deep and abiding relationship with the Earth, our Mother, and the host of life here on Earth.  It is paramount that, in our own healing, we come into deeper relationship with her.  This program will assist us in that process, and in learning and using these skills to further our path and practice. 

We will learn about and utilize explicit energies of majestic Earth sites, where sacred geometries activate and amplify consciousness, in ancient sacred stone sites, used by little known cultures here in North America, in pre-historic times, for attunement to and alignment with earth and star energies, and higher consciousness.  We  will engage in ceremony and ritual, to move into deeper understanding of these Earth energies. 
This is a unique program, guided in part by the essences/energies/wisdom, of the "Keepers" of the sites and the keys to consciousness which they hold.

Cal I doorwayThis will be a multi- day program (varies by year,) creating and furthering relationship with sacred elements of Earth & Sky. Join Zacciah in shamanic and mystical practices to connect more deeply through the heart and essence of one's being.  We will explore a variety of sacred sites which will include many of: the DreamLodge (active stone chamber) and other lodges and components of the Calendar I site, the Cavendish Gorge, Mount Mansfield, Mount Ascutney, Calendar II, Black Mountain, Queechee Gorge, and other sacred sites.  We will work with the sacred essences of stone and water, air, Earth, sun & Sky, the Keepers, Celestial, and Ancestral beings of these sites in celebratory communion, learning tools of connection, hearing, seeing, reading and understanding Earth Energies. 

doorway,dreamlodgeThese sites hold key components for assisting in developing higher awareness.  Through explicit ritual and offerings we will create the opportunity to open to these awarenesses, and work to birth them within our own greater consciousness.  We can then carry these components into our daily lives and practice for furthering their growth, and assisting others.

We will incorporate teachings of the Incan traditions, embracing the Earth and all of her aspects, as living energy, and engage in initiations in the Karpay traditions of the Q'ero Indians of Central Peru, as taught by master teacher Juan Nunez del Prado, of Peru, in the Karpay America programs he has taught here with Zacciah.  He, and others, have asked Zacciah to carry forward these traditions.  

The Earth is calling to us to re-create sacred relationship.  This is where we are dwelling.  Discover your home, come into relationship with her.

We are living in a unique time of awakening Earth awareness.  Come and join us in these rich programs of greater trust. self reflection, and self understanding.
