The Annual September Gathering
As we navigate these unpredictable times and as Oscar dedicates the next year to his personal journey, we have the opportunity and the call to “show up”. The September Gathering is an invitation this year to come together in community where we renew ourselves, remember our dreams, visions, gifts and honor the practices to create a personal and collective intent for the coming year. 

These can be exhausting times.
This is very much a weekend of Grace and Ease 
embraced by Pachamama, cleansed by her waters, 
illumined by the light of Inti, Mamakilla and the Chaskamayu 
amid the ancient Malkis 
to Renew Your Spirit and Recharge Your Soul.

Join Us for Gathering of Pachakuti Mesa Carriers 
from the Southeast Suyu and Beyond!

We invite you to join us in ceremony as we gather our mesas around the Qollasuyu mesa on Friday night, move into the collective and individual dreaming, share stories of our sacred places, honor our teachers, weave a network of people and events to carry us into and through the next year, hike to a secret place Saturday afternoon followed by a fire ceremony Saturday night and celebrate on Sunday.

“We must focus on being the manifestation of the Great Work by journeying to that place, that moment of co-creation in community with the combined energy, gifts, and presence of all who attend to transform a dimension of chaotic reality to the incredible heart based reality that can and will be. This will be a moment of convergence, a vortex of energies spinning with combined energies emitting the light of vision, the strength of munay and the power of a heart centered practice in service to Pachamama.”
