Karpay Quanchis Nustakuna - The 7 Goddess Initiations from Peru
(Previously known as the Nusta Karpay/Rites)
Awakening of the Divine Feminine
These initiations are open to both men and women who wish to receive them. They are also suitable for newcomers and those who have trained in traditional healing ways. These transmissions offer each participant a profound connection with to the Nustakuna known as the feminine energies in the Andes.
High in the mountain range known as the Andes, the beauty of ancient ceremonies and wisdom embodied within living ancestral languages of word and ritual hold a blueprint for creating a vibrant, heart-centred life within a living universe. The people have survived there for centuries, living above treeline at high altitude in simple homes made of the very substance of Pachamama, sheltered within the stones and soil of our Mother Earth.
In recent times, the signs from the Apus and the ancestral prophecies handed down within the lineage of healer-mystics converged into a message: It is time to share the ceremonies and teachings. Our survival as the human children of Pachamama depends upon restoring sacred reciprocity ~ Ayni ~ and a living balance of the forces of life in our world.
The deceptively simple, yet immensely powerful practices of the Andes, transcend cultural differences between the Andes and the Western world. As you expand your own skills and abilities, you will find your heart opening into a vivid awareness that you are part of the living universe, moving into a profound sense of alignment with the natural forces of our world. The rich array of practices that have been preserved and kept alive in the remote villages of the high mountains of the Andes offer the possibility of transforming our relationship with ourselves, with each other and with the fast-paced modern world in which we live.
The Nustakuna are the princesses and goddesses of the mountains (apus) and waters along the highlands of Peru and Bolivia. The Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna is the initiation of the Seven Andean Goddesses from the Incan shamanic tradition.
Now is the time for the great transformation and balance of humans to bring healing to Mother Earth (Pachamama). The Nustakuna help immensely with this balance. The intent of the Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna is to soften the heart of both men and women and to help empower women. The seven initiations are seeds of light or energetic points of transmission to balance the feminine and masculine energies within you. As you heal and balance the Divine Feminine within yourself, so do you help to heal Pachamama.
About the Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna
Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna are Quechua words meaning ‘Seven Goddess Initiations’. These special, beautiful and authentic initiations are currently spreading around the World.
Who may receive the Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna?
The Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna Rites are open to both men and women, and are available to everyone regardless of their spiritual orientation. The Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna are not only for those who have apprenticed in the Andean or other ancient spiritual traditions. They are for those who wish to heal the Divine Feminine within themselves, and carry that healing into the world, and for those who wish to bring greater peace and unity to our planet.
What are the Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna?
In the Andean spiritual tradition, the Nustakuna are the Goddesses and Sacred Archetypal Feminine energies of Nature. They are the original princesses of the Andean cosmology, and are sourced from the great mountains and sacred lakes in Peru. They are also connected to other waters and mountains on our planet. In the Quechua language of the Andes, the word “Karpay” means a rite or ceremony of initiation.
The Karpay Qanchis Nustakuna were gifted to us from the Andean Q’ero medicine women and men of Peru, via Don Mariano Quispe in 2010. They recognized and responded to the cry of the Great Mother, Pachamama, to heal her wounds and imbalances. These wounds and imbalances of the Mother are reflected in our wounds and disharmony, and in the wounds and imbalances of humanity. The Q’ero medicine men and women understood that the surest way to bring harmony and balance back to our Mother Earth, Pachamama, and to bring ourselves into Right Relationship with the Pachamama and the sacred feminine was by gifting these ancient rites to re-introduce and elevate the Divine Feminine to her rightful place.
You will notice that when you commit to the workshop, the Nusta begin to work within you. Be alert to their conversation, through your dreams, imaginings and experiences with nature.
