Apprenticeship into the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (PMT)
don Humberto, Q'ero healerApprenticeships are offered under the auspices of don Oscar Miro-Quesada.
These are experiential initiations into the lineage that consist of both an immersion
into Andean shamanism and a transformational process for the apprentice. Ideally suited
to those who already have a Pachakuti Mesa with which they are working, this apprenticeship
is open to all spiritual seekers and healers of any tradition, regardless of prior training.
As a senior teacher sanctioned by don Oscar, Judy leads in-depth
apprenticeships steeped in ancient, lineage based Peruvian as well as cross cultural and modern
shamanism. These apprenticeships consist of five weekend intensive gatherings involving active,
hands on practice and initiation. This series is called The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition: Cross-Cultural
Shamanic Arts for Personal and Planetary Renewal. The PMT is a profound yet practical, user friendly,
living shamanic tradition dedicated to both personal and planetary healing. As Judy facilitates
this apprenticeship, one's own innate healing and spiritual potential is awakened. The apprenticeship
revolves around the creation of your mesa. This is a shamanically empowered altar, unique to you,
yet following the traditional, ancient Andean template. The mesa provides a living, vibrational
technology of the sacred from which you may draw upon and apply a vast array of shamanic healing
modalities and capacities that have come down to u from over at least three millennia. Judy guides
each student toward a remembering of who each of us is, as a living strand of sacred luminousity
in the great Web of Life. The PMT is designed and empowered to promote the transformation of
consciousness for those who choose to engage it, thus opening the way for the continued life and
health of all sentient beings. The Heart of the Healer Foundation, the sponsoring organization,
is dedicated to education about and sustaining all those indigenous peoples and practices that
still remain on our planet.

apprenticeship series and her ability to share this information increased my understanding

a whole new level.”

"The Pachakuti Mesa is tranformative, rich and-light filled almost beyond
telling. It has the power to transform you, your life and the world around
you. It is a deep and beautiful medicine and Judy Hoaglund is a deep and
beautiful healer. She is also a gifted teacher, a loving presence, a well
of information and a being of light. I've been honored to be her student.
Are you ready for the medicine? If you are, and Judy is your teacher, you
will be in gifted hands. I cannot thank her enough for the positive changes
that she has brought into my life.”

"The PMT training with Judy has added a huge piece to my understanding of the
Peruvian Andean Mesa tradition. With great insight and a huge capacity for imparting
wisdom and knowledge, Judy has become a big influence in my life and a good friend.
With my Mesa in my healing space, I am much more prepared and empowered to face
life's challenges by developing a direct connection to all the forces of nature."

"The PMT Apprenticeship is life-changing. If it speaks to you, don't hesitate!"
ASE, Yorba Linda, CA
"My experience with the Pachakuti Mesa training has been far deeper than I could
have imagined. My relationship to the Earth and spirit realms has become palpable
in a way I could not have anticipated. At this point, I am nearing the end of the
training program (I am 16 months into it) and feel I am just beginning to get an
understanding of what the mesa has to offer. When I spend time with my mesa, and
do healing work on others, quite simply - I feel better, more grounded and filled
Jnana Gowan - Mesa Carrier
"Judy Hoaglund has been a guide and teacher for many years. Her wealth of knowledge,
consistent integrity, and supportive gentle spirit have had far-reaching effects in
my life. With her assistance, and through the PMT, I have learned to love myself
more fully and found a rock-solid path on the Earth. I can't recommend her enough."
