The Seven Karpay

The Pampamesayoq Karpay

The first Karpay is the Pampamesayoq Karpay (the Earthkeepers’ Rite). You will deepen your connection with Pachamama. The intention here is to help you develop your ability to heal all living beings, including the earth. You will also be exploring different offerings that we can give Pachamama.

The Killa Karpay

You will call in the energy of Mama Killa (the moon) and Hatun Ch’aska (the star nation). You are given the opportunity to deepen your sacred connection with this sublime, spiritual energy of Mama Killa, your star brothers, and star sisters.

The Ayni Karpay

The Ayni Karpay helps us to walk in balance, through reciprocity; our heart-centered intention, our offerings, and prayers. Ayni is the highest form of reciprocity or exchange with the universe, helping us to receive and dream our world into being. Working in Ayni also applies to Pachamama. When we work on behalf of the earth, without expectation, she, in turn, helps us in unexpected, abundant ways.

The Altomesayoq Karpay

It is a high-level healers rite, this is the psychic and visionary level of the Paqo. Focussing on the essence of the energy of this rite and working with your Mesa; you can develop your connection with your Apu (your sacred mountain). Don Augustine has been given permission to give this rite by his Q’ero Elders. It is the highest level of connection with the Great Spirit/Wiraccocha, the Apus (mountain spirits), and all the elements.

The N'usta Karpay

An opportunity to deeply connect with and explore your own divine feminine energy. You will receive the Karpay connected to the beautiful spirit of a feminine mountain. Each feminine mountain has a N’usta. It is a very heart-centered Karpay, which encourages your heart to expand its energy field even wider.

The Taytanchis Karpay

This is a transmission of the Wiraccocha “the creator”, Father Sun, and Pachamama. Paqo’s can develop ways to use and give this creative energy through their hands. Taytanchis Ranti means literally God on Earth. In the Andean tradition, the seventh-level priests are able to resurrect their own physical bodies after death.

The Kuraq Akulleq Karpay

The Kuraq Akulleq open themselves up to receive divine guidance through their own sacred relationship with the universe. They are the highest level of the Altomesayok. This rite is deeply connected to the Q’ero ancestors, the lineage (the forefathers and mothers) as well as the Apus and Pachamama.

These 10 days will explore the following:

During this week, Don Augustin and Santos will also be open to performing:

  • Individual healings clearing physical, emotional conditions as well as personal readings.
  • Welcoming Despacho – where you also set the intentions and outcome for this week of yours.
  • A brief explanation of the seven Karpays (this is a transmission or interchange of energy) we will receive during this week (more will be explained before each Karpay).
  • The History of Q’eros - How Augustin became a Paqo, his family history, and how Santos is now being trained in the family thread.
  • History and how the Despacho is and has been used in their tradition. A despacho is a prayer bundle or offering it’s used for a wide variety of occasions; births, deaths, as an expression of gratitude, to heal physical and emotional ailments, to restore balance and harmony, or when there is a specific request of the spirit world. We will understand what each item represents and how to feel creative in performing one for ourselves.
  • Mesa, a prayer bundle, your personal “altar”, containing various power objects and stones used for moving energy in service of healing. The mesa is one of the main tools in the Andean healing tradition.

Included excursions

There will be an opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on your day off and in the evenings. Where possible, you will give and receive the Karpay outdoors, either in the grounds of the EarthSpirit centre or at local points of interest.
