Healing With Andean Medicine
Rescuing the Soul, Healing the Sacred

Sacred Healing Space

Sacred space is a healing sphere that is pure, holy and safe. We can create sacred space and summon the healing power of the Divine, of nature anywhere on Earth. Much of our fear and pain derives from the feeling that the world is not a safe place for us. Within sacred space everyone is protected.

When we open sacred space, we leave behind the affairs of ordinary life, the bustling world of meetings and schedules, and prepare to meet the Divine. Sacred space allows us to enter our quiet inner-world where healing takes place. Within sacred space our burdens become lighter, and we can be touched by the hand of Spirit. Sacred space also gives us access to the luminous healers, the medicine men and women who assist us from the Spirit world.

Connection to the Divine through Inkan Medicine Wheel

Loneliness, vulnerability, separation from Spirit. These are sources of immense  suffering in our lives.  Yet each moment, we are surrounded by Spirit-force ready to support, heal, nourish and transform us. We need only engage our relationship with spirit to receive a rich flow of blessings.

There are many pathways and  traditions to engage with Spirit. One of them, and a powerful one, is through the Incan medicine wheel. To enter a medicine wheel is to enter a microcosm of all creation. As we stand in the center of this wheel of Life, we come into alignment with the forces that framed our cosmos. 

When we enter the Incan medicine wheel, we turn to the four cardinal directions (beginning in the South) and connect with the primordial archetypes of Creation: South ~ Serpent, West ~ Jaguar, North ~ Hummingbird, East ~ Eagle/ Condor. We touch the earth beneath our feet, Mother Earth. We raise our arms, our eyes and our hearts to the sky, Father Sun, Grandmother Moon, Great Spirit.

When we call with love, respect and clear intention, these energies respond. They arrive and sacred space is formed. In this safe and hallowed place we can connect to the Divine, embrace our vulnerability, deepen intimacy, heal old wounds, welcome new energies, receive aid from luminous beings and ancestral helpers, taste infinity. This is not the privilege of a elite few, but the birth right of every human. 

“Serpent represents the binding principle;
jaguar is the renewing force; hummingbird represents the epic journey of evolution and growth; and eagle or condor stands for the self-transcending principle. Heaven is the creative force; Earth is the receptive force. When you summon them, you align yourself with the forces that animate all life.” 

Alberto Villoldo, Shaman, Healer, Sage

You can create sacred space and summon the healing power of nature anywhere on Earth. You can use it while your own prayer reveals itself to you.

Prayers to Open Sacred Space

As you deepen relationship with the forces that animate all life, open to your own words, your own prayers.

Open to connection ...create  Sacred Space


To the winds of the south, Great Serpent.

Come, be with us today, wrap your coils of Light around us.

 Teach us to shed our old stories, all at once

 the way you shed your skin, as an act of love and courage.

Show us to walk with grace and ease on the Earth.

 Light up the fire, the motivating life force to assist us in the

 writing of our new story.

 Teach us the beauty way.  Ho!




To the Winds of the West, Mother Jaguar, Otorongo,

Choque Chinchay, Beautiful Dragon.

  Protect our Sacred Medicine Space. 

 Consume those energies which do not belong to us.

 Teach the way of peace, to live impeccably so

that we can leap into whom we are becoming, homos luminous.

Teach us your ways of integrity – the ways of the luminous warrior,

one who needs no enemies in this world or the next. Ho!




To the Winds of the North,

Royal Hummingbird. Grandmothers and Grandfathers,

Ancient Ones, come and sit by our fires,

warm our hands in yours. Whisper to us in the wind the ancient truths.

Help us discover your wisdom and create union with the divine.

We honor you who have come before us

and you who will come after us, our children’s children. Ho!






To the Winds of the East, Mother Sister Eagle,

Condor, Apuchine, we call on you Mother.

Fly high above us from your mountain top in the East.

  Show us how to spread our own wings 

and soar to places we have never dare to fly before.

Come, guide us and protect us, keep us under your wing.

 Teach us how to fly in harmony with the Great Spirit

and apply our vision in the context of our life and work. Ho!

the animal kingdom and all our relations.

Thank you Mother for sustaining us with your bounty,

for supporting our healing work on your belly.

For always taking those energies which are too
