Let your path of beauty unfold like the sunrise!.
The path of the Munay Ki is simply beautiful, they work at the level of spirit and of the soul. They speak to us through our hearts with story, imagery and myth. I feel that this magic and divine love is something we as a society deeply crave.
These rites can teach us so much about the power of divine love, connecting us with a lineage of ancestors, angels and star beings from the future to guide us and help us on our path. These can show us how to live in harmony with others and with nature. They can help us to prepare for the time to come and to remember why we came here to planet earth at this time.
The Inca have said that the rites are not really for us individually, they’re for others and to be shared. In Alberto’s experience (my teacher), they don’t blossom until they have been given away with great Munay, with love in service. It is known that the shaman sees with the eyes of the heart. The Q’ero Earthkeepers in Peru are optimistic and say that this is a time of tremendous opportunity, but that there will be a fall in the numbers of the human population. This is why it’s so important to hold a healthy vision of the planet – where we can step into our highest destinies and live sustainably on the earth.
The rites are a great way of bringing more love into your life and your life into balance . It’s wonderful to be living at such a marvelous poignant point in the history of the world. Lots of things are coming to their natural end and it’s important to have love, creativity, dance, music and ceremony to mark this time of transition that we’re in!. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!
“ I believe that this is the moment when the human species can rise to it’s full potential. We have now created for ourselves the greatest challenge we have ever faced. And that means that we have the opportunity to live the most meaningful lives that have ever been lived” David Ulansey.
The 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki
Become Earthkeepers for Gaia or Mother Earth.
The 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade your luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that can heal the wounds of the past-your karmic & genetic inheritance.
They re-inform your DNA, enabling you to grow a new body-one that ages, heals, and dies differently. The Munay-Ki is your invitation to dream an entire new world into being. It is the beginning of the Hero’s Journey.
These 9 rites can be passed on and exchanged without any formal training. They create a shift in frequency in your energy field, cleansing your charkas and activating your rainbow light body, so that you become HOMO LUMINOUS Living, Ageing and Dying Differently.
The Munay Ki are the teachings of love, pure undiluted love from the source. When we come from a place of humility, we connect with the energy of compassion, which allows us to experience the power of love. When we practice acceptance and live what we feel, we are drawn towards reverence, an active respect for everyone and everything we encounter in life.
Each of us comes into the world with a light body that’s connected to our genetic, karmic and ancestral heritage. It is also our soul’s light that nourishes , strengthens and sustains us as we live and our lives unfold. Sometimes as we grow in experience and wisdom things happen. The Q’ero believe that there is only sami (light energy) or hucha (heavy energy). The Munay Ki can clear your luminous energy field of the psychic sludge left by past traumas.
Our consciousness as a human race is expanding each day, connecting our hearts and minds.
Why are the Munay-Ki so important?
- They activate the LEF and its power to manifest and create. They teach us how to act with ‘right thought, right heart, right action’
- They transform our lives from scarcity to grace.
- They help us to restore our natural divine radiance, living with humility, reverence for the earth and knowing ourselves with self discipline. We cannot walk a sacred path without discipline, this is where so many teachers and spiritual seekers have stumbled.
How can these seeds of light help us?
The Plaeides constellation, seeds of light and starkeepers to guide and inspire us.
The Munay Ki are planted like seeds in a garden. Praying to the four directions, the breath and fire ceremonies grow these seeds. These seeds are fed by opening sacred space, performing fire ceremony and with the breath. To walk this path of fire, one must have strongly developed ethics and one must have a well developed heart. We can use the fire ceremony to feed our hearts and release what’s no longer needed in our lives. They help us acquire great power in our hearts by helping us develop strong ethics.
- We can become connected to the day keepers rite, the ones who tended the ancient temples.
- We can become connected to the starkeepers rite and all the archangels. We walk in beauty in protection and grace. We can become our own storytellers and myth makers
- We dream a vision of a beautiful healed world for our future generations.
I will continue in detail about each rite in another post.
May you fly with beauty.
For all our relations.
A new path can unfold when we receive the Munay Ki Rites.
The Munay Ki
I was given the Munay Ki rites and trained to pass them on by Pauline Black in 2008, who participated in the first Munay-Ki course with The Four Winds Society in London.
These rites are very powerful and, for many recipients, transformational tools for developing a deep awareness of some aspects of Andean as well as more universal spiritual practices. Together with other Munay Ki practitioners, I agree that these rites are a good foundation for and introduction to a much deeper set of practices, many of which come from the peoples of Q’eros and have been since taught to me in their pure form.
The Munay Ki Rites remind us of our macro and micro connection to the universe.
For myself, the rites have deepened my connection with the core shamanic principles and energetic techniques, which were taught to me by Juan Nunez Del Prado and Alberto Villoldo, as well as opening up a new gateway. This gateway, once stepped through honours the sacred and simple reverence of nature and has helped me to bring into balance my physical, emotional and spiritual being into ‘right thought, right heart, right action’.
They have helped me to create a safe space to work with ceremony, to develop my healing and psychic abilities. They have given me a sacred connection to the power places, the stars, the mountains and the luminous beings, who help me everyday in my work.
Dreaming Our World into Being for our Children’s Children.
I’m very grateful to the Four Winds Society for helping the Western world access such poignant spiritual and energetic awareness, at a time when we so severely need it. I heard today that Shamans in the Amazon consider the western world as having ‘severed their connection’ with spirit. Receiving the Munay Ki is a wonderful way of re-connecting to, sourcing from our spiritual strength and dreaming our world into being for our highest good and for our children’s children.
Once I was given the Munay Ki rites, I was in a good place to go much deeper into a beautiful set of sacred practices still alive today in the High Andes. As I teach the Munay Ki and pass on the rites to others, I make it clear that they also contain the essence of several traditions. These, when taken as a whole can also provide us with a beautiful, meaningful and helpful introduction to the world of living energy healing.
A core aspect of Andean mysticism is something called “puqllay” which means sacred play. When you see the Q’ero medicine men and women, they take their ceremonies and shamanic work very seriously but they also take time out to play football !. So, in the spirit of “Puqllay’ I invite you to receive, give and share these rites with others and enjoy yourselves along the way.
Having fun is so important in our fast paced world!.
I particularly love the starkeepers rite and the seers rite but you will have your own favourites.
The Munay Ki rites have been an amazing journey. I felt my impulse to have the rites grow until I was guided towards Ali in her beautiful sanctuary. Slowly, a wonderful new dimension for my life has opened up. We carried out some of the rites in sacred places and in nature, were we could feel all the energy of the elements supporting us. We connected strongly with the ancestral luminous beings who always guided us . During this time, I felt such a sense of reciprocity and balance. I’m very grateful to Mother Earth, the Spirit World, our past and future generations and the archetypes for having shared their wisdom. They’ve put such a generous full of light being called Ali on my path. In love and light, A. Martha , Naturopath, Hartford, July 2014 UK.
Something is very different that I don’t really have the words for since receiving the rites. I feel a quietness,calm and joy is flowing into my life when wandering each day out in the countryside. Thank you once again for a very enlightening experience with the Munay Ki rites, it was very much the right time and in your wonderful sessions and delivery the right person for me, with gratitude to you.

Beltain gathering in the garden.
A Beltain Ceremony
For me, all of life is bursting with fertility and the power of it’s own potential at this time of year. I was very much guided to connect with our hearts at this time and our own feminine/masculine archetypes within us. We had a beautiful ceremony at my friend Sharifin’s house. First, we opened scared space. Then we shared poems and sayings connected with blossom and spring. We made garlands for our heads with blossom and willow.
Male and Female Archetypes
Imagine that you have a King and a Queen archetype in your heart space, what would they say to you?. What would they say to each other?. This is a good time to re-evaluate your relationship with yourself, your friends and family. Sacred water from a local well was available for people to bless themselves where needed.
We went outside into the garden, where luckily the weather was kind to us. A spiral had been laid with felted rope in the grass and little tealights to light the way. In the centre of the spiral was a young maple tree, with it’s variegated leaves just emerging. We took it in turns to drum and rattle each person into the centre of the spiral and out again. Some people walked slowly, some danced and ran!. Each person took his or her own journey. Some had a question for the journey, some held an intention for themselves.
Then, the sun was setting and a sacred fire was lit at the bottom of the garden using the Q’ero tradition. We released what was no longer serving us and welcomed in a light quality in it’s place for the fertility of our future plans and projects. Once we had all worked with the fire and connected with the fire being in the centre, everyone voiced a need to jump over the fire!. The energy was high and bursting with potential at this point. after a time, we all came back together in a circle around the fire holding hands.
At this point, we made a heart meditation and sent healing energy wherever it was needed in the world.
After closing sacred space when the embers had died down, we shared a wonderful array of food together. This kind of event keeps me going for a long time and is a wonderful way of planning the next six weeks for the heart, head and hands.
The earth festivals are a gentle rhythm connected to nature and it’s seasons. They are an organising principle for us humans to set o
