PACHACUTI: a journey into oneness
According to ancient Andean traditions, the New Pachacuti coincides with the end of the second millennium. It signals a time of partnership, when the condor of the south will fly with the eagle of the north, uniting heart and spirituality with mind and materialism, bringing balance. Pacha is a Quechua word expressing “earth, universe, time” – a concept that all is one, and separation is only an illusion. The New Pachacuti is a time for all of us to manifest our dreams – both personal and global. These 15 ecstatic journeys provide one of the most powerful methods for accomplishing this, a process that has been used by the great shamanic shapeshifters, the Andean Yachaks, for thousands of years.
“If you listen silently, with the ears of your soul, and flow into the harmony of music you have never heard before, you will experience Pachamama and the way she expresses herself through the soft movement of the water, the delicate dance of the wind, the fertility of Mother Earth, the color of our father fire and the sweet melody of life. Then your soul will rejoice with all the melodies of life, harmonizing body, mind, and spirit. That is why this music, played for your benefit, incorporates the fundamental principals of Takisami (music spirits), empowering each sound emitted by each instrument.
“We invite you to use these ancestral Andean melodies – gifts from our grandfathers and grandmothers – to integrate our growth together, harmonizing the union of the condor and the eagle inside the Zumak Alli Pacha, Hanak Pacha, Kai Pacha and Ucu Pacha. Together we will manifest the prophesies of our ancestors that “one day the condor and the eagle will fly together in the same sky.” This day, this Pacha, has arrived. It is today: this time, this space. Each of us is ready and now is the moment for us to materialize it in our daily lives. We know that flight requires balance; those of us with more eagle energy need to embrace the spirit of the condor; those with more condor energy need to embrace the spirit of the eagle.”
