SERENA ANCHANCHU- CENTRE FOR INCA SHAMANISM
Welcome to the website of Serena Anchanchu, Centre for Inca Shamanism. The Centre has been founded by several Q’ero shamans or paqos – priest healers – and they invite you warmly to train with them. In the training programme they teach and initiate you to walk the path of a shaman of Mother Earth. You will start to walk the spiritual path of the pampamesayoq. They transmit their wisdom through age-old, oral traditions. This wisdom and knowledge is authentic, meaning without any Western interpretations and adjustments. In their home country and community paqos have trained students for centuries and for several decades they train Western students as well. However, the paqos having their own training programme in foreign countries is new.
Learning the basic skills of a pampamesayoq you walk a spiritual path in the service of Mother Earth. You learn to be in touch with your true self and with everything around you.
Serena Anchanchu, Goddess of the Sea
Anchanchu is the Quechua name of the Goddess of the Sea. Serena is the Spanish and more familiar name of this Goddess. The centre’s name symbolizes the bond the paqos have with water. According to them the path of the paqo is a path of the water. Our body consists mainly of water. We purify ourselves by honouring and showing gratefulness to the water. Moreover we live in a time of transformation. The earth needs healing, the oceans, rivers and lakes also. Therefore the paqos feel very much connected to the name Anchanchu for their centre in which they communicate their lore and wisdom internationally.
