The role of the religious specialist in Andean cultures of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries was a complicated one, balanced between local traditions and the culture of the Spanish. In The Power of Huacas, Claudia Brosseder reconstructs the dynamic interaction between religious specialists and the colonial world that unfolded around them, considering how the discourse about religion shifted on both sides of the Spanish and Andean relationship in complex and unexpected ways.
A YAQUI WAY OF KNOWLEDGE
The teachings of don Juan is the story of a remarkable journey: the first awesome steps on the road to becoming a "man of knowledge" -- the road that continues with "A Separate Reality" and "Journey to Ixtlan."
"For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel, looking, looking, breathlessly." -- Don Juan
Having been prepared by two years of astral journeys with an extraterrestrial guide, eight-year-old Tanis asks her parents for a family vacation in Peru's Sacred Valley. As a result, Tanis and her family visit sacred Inca sites and find that ancient wisdom traditions are still being practiced in the Andes. In the context of Andean prophecies and practices, the book suggests how readers both young and adult can cope with our unsettling times. During her family's journey, Tanis comes of age spiritually as she encounters talking stones, shamans, spirit apparitions, spirit guides, ETs, and UFOs. Because of her open heart, curiosity, and generous nature, she is initiated into the wisdom traditions of the Andean people and connects with the mystical essence of Self beyond self, the healing power of Mother Nature, and the truly magical power of love.
In Secrets of Shamanism, Jose and Lena Stevens demonstrate how the age-old practice of shamanism can be adapted to the needs and conditions of the modern world. Through a series of simple exercises and lessons they teach readers the ancient secrets used by shamans for centuries.
Do you ever feel that your world is so "civilized" you can't express yourself? That there is a part of you that needs to be remembered? Evelyn Rysdyk can help you understand and use this feeling to transform your life. She asserts that although most of us have been assimilated into our agriculturally-based society full of rules and regulations and community care, many of us still possess the urgent instincts of the hunter -- who lives in the moment -- and the gatherer -- who feels part of the great fabric of life and thrives on the uncertainties of the journey. You'll discover how to get in touch with these facets of your inner self and develop your personal creative energy by using shamanic journeying, meditation, movement, sound, and storytelling. Rysdyk offers a renewed way of living, full of richness, peace, health, and harmony for ourselves and the future of our planet.
