Munay Ki - Empowerment Rites with Karen Weinman
Imagine planting seeds of consciousness within you, to open up your path in a respectful way, in the perfect timing to your own needs & growth. Expanding your potential & connection!
In this Andean workshop we are going to plant, learn how to nourish these seeds & integrate their power wisely.
The Munay-Ki is a series of nine Empowerment rites
based on some of the initiatory practices of the Qero Paqo’s (Shamans) of Peru.
 “Munay” in Quechua means “love and will”, together with “ki” combine to give the meaning: energy of love.Opening to love within.
Using the Munay Ki as a vehicle to teach you, these initiations will gently (yet profoundly) introduce you to :
  • Awaken the healer within you
  • Build belts into your energy field for protection
  • The seven archetypal energies transmitted into your chakras, to clean, open relationship and discover guidance. These include Animal  archetypes and other levels of consciousness.
  • Awaken the ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and spirit.
These above are the foundation for receiving the rest.
It will also include the 5 Rites that are given to initiates as they walk the path of Paqo – Andean ‘Shaman’:
  • Daykeeper Rite:              -This connects you to a lineage of master healers. Heals the feminine within, step beyond fear and practice peace.
  • Wisdomkeeper Rite:       -Connects you to a lineage that helps you heal from the past –and future. Heals the inner masculine, step outside of time to remember infinity.
  • Earthkeeper Rite:           – Connects you to a lineage of Archangels & Guardians of our galaxy.
  • Starkeeper Rite:              -This Rite anchors you safely and youthfully during this time of change, so your physical body can evolve to become homo luminous!
  • Creator Rite:                     -Awaken the Creator -light within, which brings forth a sense of Stewardship for all creation as well as a connection to the source.
Originally designed by Alberto Villoldo to offer to Westerners, Munay ki is a great way to begin to get to know the Andean mysticism.
After 8 years of intense learning, my own initiations and visits with the Qero, I have discovered that I too bring authentic energy to these Rites for you. For example, when offering the Wisdomkeeper Rite, you will also receive a true lineage of Apus (Mountain Energy) from my own relationships with the Apu’s. This takes the Munak Ki to a whole other level. It seems I bring the Gift of Peru, my intimate connection with the Lineages and authentic focus to your rites.
It is not intentional, I didn’t understand that a facilitator who hadn’t been to Peru, would only offer transmission energy from Villoldo and many teachers inbetween. Where as I was bringing original connection to what I was offering.
I was made aware of this by students who had received the rites before from other faciitators, who repeated the Munay Ki with me. I received feedback that what I offered was at a deeper level, that they appreciated for it’s genuineness.
So after 2 years & 2 teacher’s training’s in the Munay Ki itself, 8 years of Andean Path training and initiations I have received, I can assure you an authentic Rite of passage. I will share with you a wholesome workshop, with a strength of energetic transmissions- AND practical theory!
Andean tradition is mainly oral & energetic – so it is to be experienced, discussed  & practiced. Although there will be notes (it is part of Volloldo’s offering), it will be focused -like the Andean’s teach – on the other levels of your being. Mainly …to be embodied!
Therefore, the workshop group size will be kept small and intimate:  4 to 6 maximum
To give you time to integrate, the Rites will be spread over separate dates – not one weekend as originally taught. 
We’ll begin at 10am, finish about 4pm.
I am very flexible in creating the times that suit you. Generally weekends are best, but I have also done during the week – days as well as evenings.
Private sessions are also available.
Please contact me for costs. 
You will be learning and experiencing an ancient path to healing & connection. It is very exciting and beautiful. … integration will happen in your best timing – for months and years afterwards. Bringing everything together.
This will invite you to master yourself as you evolve….supporting you to find balance, healing & a beautiful sense of belonging –
as you melt more into nature & learn about Ayni.
(Ayni is Quechua for ‘path of reciprocity’ )
The above, does cover the exquisite content, but please feel free to email me if you have any questions.
It is time….
We are the change the world is looking for.
