Don Claudio Quispe is a paqo from the Q’ero lineage of the southern high part of the Andes in Peru. He walks the medicine pathway as a Pampamesayoq, a healer who creates offerings and performs healings through connecting himself to Mother Earth.
As a young boy Don Claudio suffered from a wound that would not heal. His father took him to visit an Altomesayoq. From the mountain Ausangate the Altomesayoq received the message that Don Claudio needed to start walking the path of a medicine man. He took this message to heart, started to walk this path and within a short period of time the wound began to heal.
