“Pachakuti” means “world reversal” and refers to the time of transformation we are living now. A “Mesa” is an altar for self-exploration, transformation and personal growth in which we create a new paradigm of one’s relation to the Self and the Universe. “Curanderismo” means “system of healing” and can be defined as a set of traditional beliefs, rituals and practices that address the physical, spiritual, psychological and social needs of the people who use it. This tradition, in all its richness, is an evolving practice of inner and outer activities that restore balance and harmony to our relationships with All That Is.
Pachakuti Mesa Lineage
Don Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo is the originator of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism and the visionary founder of The Heart of the Healer organization (THOTH). Through his teachers, don Celso Rojas Palomino and don Benito Corihuamán Vargas, the ancient lineage of this shamanic tradition can be traced back to its origins over 5,000 years ago.
Don Oscar’s first experience with Peruvian shamanism was under the famed huachumero don Celso Rojas Palomino from Salas. After don Celso transitioned to the Spirit World, don Oscar then started a four-year apprenticeship within the Andean Paqokuna tradition of shamanism with famed kuraq akulleq don Benito Corihuamán Vargas from the village of Wasao.
Both of these venerated elders sanctioned Oscar with a similar compacto de voz y palabra (i.e., “an oral bequeath as elder lineage carrier for the people,”) requesting him to share the “prophetic vision” of the “Ancient Ones”, among as many people as possible living in modern Western developed nations of the world. Both elders insisted this was the only way of safeguarding the true “inner wisdom” behind the Earth-based spiritual traditions and healing arts continuously practised by Peruvian indigenous cultures since time immemorial. They both insisted that this was the only way to prevent the total disappearance of these sacred wisdom traditions.
