As a result of Don Oscar’s apprenticeship in northern coastal huachuma curanderismo and initiation into the southeastern Andean paqokuna shaman/priesthood, he was charged with bringing the traditions and practices of these earth-honoring ceremonies and healing rituals to the Western developed nations of the world. Thus with patience and dedication, don Oscar cultivated and nurtured the worldwide emergence of heartfelt sacred communities through his development of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition.
Oscar has been facilitating experiential workshops and apprenticeship series of workshops that integrate millennial and contemporary healing practices and Earth-honoring ceremonial traditions with a focus on the creation of heartfelt sacred communities around the world since 1979. He has also been guiding exemplary cross-cultural shamanic apprenticeship expeditions to sacred sites of the world (with special emphasis on Peru and Bolivia) since 1986. His widely acclaimed ethnospiritual pilgrimages to ancestral lands are carefully designed to awaken a reverent awareness of Pachamama (“Earth Mother”) as a vital evolutionary dimension to human experience.
