This program will offer several practices to awaken our luminous being, including the most potent SoulStar Initiations. The powerful transformational vocal techniques Zacciah utilizes will create a deep transpersonal space which will enrich most participants' experience beyond normal meditative practices.
We shall also enjoy several practices in nature to enhance our abilities to enter living relations with the living energies of the Earth, and spirit of the places we work with. These are important tools to the process of growth, and entering harmonious relationship with All Life, which elders of most Native Cultures of the Americas suggest are necessary both to implement these times of Great Transformation and Awakening, but, also, to insure our safe and sacred passage through these times.

MEALS AND LODGING
For your MESA AND our DESPACHO:
The mesa is an Andean portable altar, much like the N. American Native Medicine bag. The Despacho is a burnt fire offering to the Spirits of the Place, and the Earth Mother (Pachamama.)
The mesa is used to connect, access, carry, store, integrate, move, and transmit the living energies of places of power, important to you, as well as lineage transmissions from your elders/teachers, and other aspects of Peruvian wisdom.
To build a mesa, you will need any of the following items:
A mesa is typically made from 1 or 2 heavy/woven/colorful cloths, typically 20"- 30" in width, alpaca/wool, in designs of particular tribes/nations/peoples...such as below:
Any cloth will do, especially for last minute use!
It may be tied with a cloth rope or belt.
You can order traditional authentic Q'ero mesa cloths from Zacciah at $100-150 each. These are directly from the Q'ero, who are true carriers of the Incan wisdoms, and Zacciah's elders and teachers in the Peruvian mysteries.
Those who want to use them can also order sets of Chumpi Stones.
Please bring items for your mesas. Imagine enough items to fill 4-8" in width/square at most. You do not need to over do it, and, as we work with our mesas, we can gather stones in our work, which we empower with our work.
Zacciah will, also, gather sacred stones (cuyas) to bless with our lineage keeper's stones in his mesa, and pass out by end of practice, a traditional Karpay (initiatory) practice. Sacred stones are very important to the Peruvians in this work. They carry the energy of the place, of the ancestral lineages, of the work we do.
Bring small objects that have been beneficial to you in your life....these may be medicine objects, stones, crystals, spiritual icons, etc; not too many, not too large....
Traveling with your own 'sacred bundle' is always considered an empowering act.
We recommend you do not bring anything that may be crushed, as the mesa is folded in upon itself to be carried from place to place. A simple cloth belt can be used to tie it, but this is not necessary due to how it is folded in upon itself.
We will, also, work with, palo santo (sacred wood,) and sage, tobacco, other sacred herbs of North America. If you have any of these, we encourage you to bring some of each you feel called to learn or work with. Tobacco will especially be most useful during our outdoor practices.
To build a Despacho (a burnt fire offering,)
Please bring a small number of any of the following items:
We will have fire ceremony with a 'despacho' offering, also. If you have a few parcels of any of these, to add as offerings, it is helpful: Grains, candies, flowers, herbs, seeds, other small burnable gifts from the Earth. As we each add to it, not many are needed. We will have some with us to share, but your own offerings are most beneficial, and initiates what is known as "AYNI," the Law of Reciprocity, very important to Peruvian, and indigenous understanding, the giving and taking in Harmony with All Life.
|ITEMS FOR SALE:

at our World Musical Instrument and Sound Healing Tools web site, Sunreed Instruments:
This program is facilitated by, Zacciah Blackburn, PhD, a highly skilled intuiive teacher and guide in sound healing and esoteric awareness practices for true awakening of consciousness. He has worked in the field for over 3 decades, offers a 3 year program in therapeutic sound healing practices, and teaches internationally a variety of esoteric trainings in consciousness and earth healing practices.
He is Director of Education for the International Sound Healing Network, and a working board member of the Sound and Music Alliance..
Zacciah's work has long focused on the emerging transformation of human consciousness.
This work, The Great Awakening, continues a series of programs explicit to this new era of awakening which humanity is entering, with explicit steps to assist in this personal and collective awakening, long prophecied by many cultures of the world.
The Great Awakening will offer keen insight into the nature of this incredible threshold of awakening, upon which humanity stands poised, as well as offer each participant a vehicle which can transport us into other worlds of understanding, experience, and self knowledge. These experiences are especially heightened via the art of Sacred Sound Transmissions, through which Zacciah brings the sounds and voices of Holy Beings from other realms of consciousness, into our present environ, which can heighten our sense of Living Reality. The vast majority of participants find these experiences extraordinarily enriching, life altering, and deeply transformative. At the same time, participants are left with practical exercises to carry into their every day lives.
