"A Call to Heal: Releasing The Past"
July 10th-12th, 2020
This apprenticeship workshop initiates participants into the Pachakuti Mesa, a powerful and sacred altar. Students learn how to create their own mesas and work with them for self-empowerment, transformation, and helping others. Through shamanic journey and visionary states of consciousness, participants will explore the three worlds of the Andean cosmovision, sacred reciprocity with all that is, the core ingredients of ceremonial mastery, sacred sound and ritual language, healing and curanderismo, and the inner world of the ukhupacha.
"A Balance of Power: Transforming the Present"
October 9th-11th, 2020
During this workshop intensive, participants will apprentice in the center of the mesa, traditional Peruvian healing practices, and the kaypacha, the middle world. They will explore the kaypacha’s elemental matrix and magico-spiritual power, and learn about the moon’s presence in the middle world, mapping the cosmos on Earth, and celestial death and rebirth.
"A Condor's Quest: Creating the Future"
January 15th-17th, 2021
This workshop is an initiation into the paqokuna, the Andean Shaman/Priesthood mystical path, the lineage of the sacred mountains, and the five virtues of the mesa. Participants will also journey to and experience the hanaqpacha, the upper world beyond the physical, work with the unseen world there and deepen their connection to their own spiritual resources.
"The Hummingbird's Ascent: Living the Mystery"
April 9th-11th, 2021
In this apprenticeship workshop students will experience the upper world and learn about its lightning bolt of mystical illumination and the flow of kamasqa, the power of Creation. They will work with the elements, the forces of the universe, the body of Mother Earth, and sacred healing objects. In sacred reciprocity participants will create despachos to honor Mother Earth, the sacred mountains, the elements, the unseen world, and prepare for a paqowachu, a sacred pilgrimage.
"The Shamanic Self: Serving the Earth"
July 10th-12th, 2021
This workshop deepens participants’ experience of soul and spirit through ritual process, including the spiritual creation, activation and care of an apacheta. Students will work with the power of creation in the kaypacha or middle world, dimensionality and time, as well as with the three suns, and the hampikamayoq process (ancient breathing techniques for physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being and transformation). Participants will be further empowered by evoking both seen and unseen sources of cosmic awareness within their mesa, sacred objects and own being, and initiation into the lineage of this revered tradition.
*Optional* June/July, 2021
This 3 day ceremony will be guided and energetically held for you via in-person or long-distance support. You will embark on a pilgrimage to a mountain of your choosing, where you will claim your path of Shamanic Service. You will be given all the instructions and tutelage you need in order to perform this powerful rite, yet you will be the one who journeys alone.
Shardai will help you to hone your intentions before you leave, and will 'catch your story' when you return– offering her reflections of the specific medicine you have received.
Separate payment TBD.

Sacred Reciprocity "Ayni"
While it its true that these teachings do not belong to any one person, and are freely given to any heart-felt aspirant of the Great Work, delivering them is not 'free.'
In order to stay in balanced reciprocity with the great web of life, there is an energetic exchange required in order to 're-feed' these living-breathing teachings, and those that guard and disseminate them.
Given this wisdom, please know that your financial & energetic investments are a powerful recognition of the value of these medicine teachings for the benefit of yourself, and of all life.
While the nature of the universe is infinitely abundant, we recognize that we live within a social system that does not always recognize this notion. It is our joy to help bridge this injustice by offering different payment options based on your current level of financial abundance. Scholarship preference given to BIPOC, first come first served.
Please take a pause to meditate on, and choose your path of ayni.

No refunds for deposits.
In cases of family emergency, we will put your tuition towards a future apprenticeship.
All cancellations must be in writing.
If, during the apprenticeship, you have an emergency or illness causing you to miss one of the weekends, you are still responsible for any ongoing tuition payments as scheduled, and you may participate in the other online program elements. To make-up your weekend, you have 2 options: Either your tuition will go towards a future apprentice hoop which you will sit in on for just that weekend. Or you can do a 1:1, 2-day make-up with Shardai for an extra fee of $200. You are only allowed one make-up per apprenticeship series, to keep the integrity of our circle.
Payment Plan Policy
You will be sent a financial/energetic contract to sign upon registration for your chosen payment plan.
Your deposit is non-refundable once submitted, even if you choose not to continue after the first weekend.
No refunds will be given after the first weekend, if you choose not to complete the full apprenticeship, for any reason.
If there is a true emergency preventing your completion of the apprenticeship, your payments will stop, and any excess paid tuition will go towards a future apprenticeship.
If it is clear after the first weekend that this is not a good fit for you, you will have a private council with Shardai to confirm, and any investments less the deposit and first weekend tuition will be refunded/canceled. No refunds from 30 days after the first weekend and on.
If Sacred Center Sanctuary cancels the apprenticeship at any time due to emergency: If it is before the start date, any payments & deposits made will be refunded to the student. If it is after the start date, any payments made that surpasse the weekends covered will be canceled or refunded.
If you are displeased with the apprenticeship for any reason, you are to seek private council with Shardai first, to lovingly discuss the issue and next steps.
