Paqo :  Masters of Living Energy

10 session course over 8 months

Paqo’s are Mystics & Healers, who follow an ancient Andean path to healing, embodying & interacting with Nature & Divine consciousness, endeavouring to become a 6th level being.

This is a self-development training to discover this beautiful way of living, from within you.

A way of remembering our connection with nature, & building our powers of mystical seeing, speaking our power, being who we really are, knowing our passion & personal power -& being able to act it out!

Ayni, Qechua for ‘reciprocity’ = giving & receiving, is the basic principle to this tradition.

On this training you will learn tools & techniques build relationships, embody Ayni by communicating with living energy, & becoming one with nature.

As you interact with nature, it will clear away hucha (heavy energy) from you.

Raising your vibration & life force!

Using energy systems not known in our Western world, buried within our bubbles, to open these capabilities & embody them consciously.

This living energy will grow you where is best for you, in the order that is best for you.

This path is fundamentally a personal journey to expand Munay (love will) & your potential power!

Once the foundation is set, we will then practice very rare & ancient group practices, giving you an experience of these higher forms of energy.

Bringing healing to each individual & our larger community.

Very precious practices being taught in this country for the first time.

So come join me & learn this exquisite way of being.

An inherently feminine way to bring harmony & balance.

You are going to learn a ‘system’ & an energy language you’ve probably never heard of.

This requires new senses, humbleness, deep listening, time, patience….& Love.

So we will meet once a month, giving you time in-between learning to practice, build & explore.

About Karen, your facilitator:   

After 4 years on this Andean path as a Paqo, I was invited to pilgrimage with the Qeros high in the Andes to Sacred places & to receive rites. After much purification & learning, I was initiated under Apu Ausengate, the ‘Great Teacher’ Mountain of the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, held in high esteem by the Qero nation.

And without being aware became a Chakaruna – a bridge person, connecting the energy of the Andes with that of the West, supporting people to travel from the mind to the heart. A Chakaruna is always exploring this reality to connect with the beauty & perfection of creation. We help people connect to the spirit world.

I was then called to a deeper ‘level’ when I was hit by lightening…

a sign from Nature,which called me to this path of service. As a Pampamesayoc and more (I don’t get hung up on all the titles), I learn from within, under the guidance of Pachamama & her nature Spirits the Apus – Mainly Apu Ausengate & Apu Veronica, & others. We will talk about rites on this course- originally nature decided who will follow the path as a facilitator…these days rites happen mainly through humans, Qero’s.

I have trained with a few teachers (not going to list them all), the main ones for me to mention are Donna Maria Apaza; via Juan Nunez del Prado receiving authentic teachings from Don Benito Qoriwaman, Don Melchor Desa, Don Andres Espinosa & Don Manuel Q’espi. (to name a few)….the list goes on.

I have been initiated into their lineages, received ancient techniques & rites, & now travel again to Peru, for a private trip for ‘Munay rites’ in August 2018.

Some things you may want to know (I wish I had) :

a) You will be learning from the Mountain Lineages, known as the Qero.

They practice from within, as opposed to other lineages in Peru, who use plant medicine from the Jungle, or the Laika (sorcerers) who use signs & magic etc.

 The Mountain Lineages, an invisible art, is very Heart-centered, interconnected & incorporating.

b) Authenticity: After 8 years on this Andean path, I have discovered how teachings have been manipulated, either as they have gotten tainted by adding Western psychology or Eastern philosophy -disconnected from the original Incan ways.

The teachings I will share with you now come from the most genuine sources possible.

You will see how your heart recognises them.

Like my old, wise Qero teachers, my focus is on preserving this tradition & staying aligned to its true essence. I inspire to bring pure teachings to you.


I envision true community: of us at one with Nature, exchanging love & natural power – raising consciousness as we evolve into 6th level beings.

Join me on this unique and adventurous journey within.
