Learn the Andean sacred arts from the comfort of home.

Learn to engage consciously with the world of living energy. Discover how to bring coherence to your own energy body to further your conscious evolution. Bring greater love, joy, and well-being to yourself and the circumstances of your life. Live more passionately and grandly as both a spirit being and a human being. These are the promises of Andean mysticism if you apply yourself to its practices. And they are real.

In this 12-week Foundation Training in Andean Mysticism, we meet in weekly two-hour sessions online on the free Zoom conferencing platform to learn both the promises of this graceful and powerful energy tradition and to apply the practices to realize its promises. As I and scores of my students can attest, it works. But your mishas compressed IMG_4625results are proportional to the quality of your commitment. This is the great law of the tradition—ayni, or the law of reciprocity.

In the Foundation Training we cover almost all of the material that is covered in the in-person trainings, from the energy exercises to the misha to despachos. The training is in three parts. Please see the tab “Learn the Andean Sacred Arts” for greater details about each aspect of the training. Generally, this is the tradition presented as purely as possible to how the masters of old taught it, as passed on to me from my primary teacher Juan Nuñez del Prado. You will learn:

  • The right-side paña training (6 weeks), which is the mystical and yachay (energetic perception and knowledge) aspects of the tradition through the teachings of don Benito Qoriwaman. This covers the energy cosmology in detail and all the fundamental energy practices, including the core heavy-energy releasing practices of saminchakuy and hucha miqhuy, and the empowering practice of saiwachakuy.
  • The middle path of munay (3 weeks), called the chaupi, which covers the teachings of Q’ero master don Andres Espinosa. In this section we weave the chunpis (belts of power) and awaken the ñawis (mystical eyes), as well as learn how to move and tune energy through our energy body, the poq’po. We learn to actually generate munay (love) and hampe munay (healing) energies.
  • The left-side lloq’e training (3 weeks), which is the magical and llank’ay (using energy to take action in the world) aspects of the tradition through the teachings of don Melchor Desa. Here we work deep within our energy body to connect all its aspects into one coherent system and we establish a relationship with our eight helper spirits and work with them. We seed ourselves to evolve into 6th-level beings and to increase the love, joy, and well-being within ourselves and that we can bring to all aspects of our lives.

While we meet live on Zoom for each session, this training is audio only, and alldon-martin-apaza-1-cropped-compressed sessions are recorded and made available to you to download for your private use via Dropbox. Each class is two hours, with ample time for questions and discussion. Many students who cannot make the daytime classes take the training through the recordings only.

Foundation Training classes are on Tuesdays, running two hours from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern time.

What Past Students Have Said About the Online Training:

“The online Andean training and the Masters training with Joan were more enriching and empowering than I could have imagined. I loved Joan’s faithfulness to preservation of the lineage as it was taught to her, and her clear and pragmatic approach is so refreshing. I feel like I gained so many valuable tools from both courses as well as an empowered perspective that comes from choosing a path of personal responsibility. Every class was absolutely packed with fascinating knowledge and practical energetic tools alongside fascinating stories. Joan is so incredibly knowledgeable and creates a captivating and engaging class environment. I will listen to the class [recordings] again and again and confidently look forward to increasing my personal energetic coherence and refining the ayni that I engage the cosmos with.”   —J.H.

“The [online] course on the Andean cosmovision with Joan Parisi Wilcox has been extraordinary. She was able to share with us over the course of several weeks some very special teachings from elders of the Andean mystical traditions. In twelve years of study of these ways, I had not experienced many of the teachings and exercises before or in this same fashion. Joan seeks to share the teachings as true and authentically to their roots as possible. And clarifies the lineage from which they come. Joan teaches with wisdom, clarity, integrity and thoroughness. It was an honor and a privilege to work with Joan.”  —D. P.

“Joan’s classes have been a life changer for me. I have been through many apprenticeships with different teachers; each had their value and place in my development, but I was always left with a feeling there was more. Joan’s unique wisdom and knowledge, teaching and writing skills, as well as her deep long-term commitment to Andean mysticism, has left me with the feeling that I have found my ‘something more.’ I recommend and encourage anyone who has asked the question: ‘Is there more?’ to take Joan’s classes.  —L.P.K.

“Joan is an outstanding teacher. She approaches these authentic, precious teachings from the Andes with humility and respect. A fine story teller, her scholarly perspective on Andean mysticism is engaging.  This training gives a complete account of the Andean cosmovision and how to access the world of living nature in order to increase joy, wholeness and healing in one’s life.”  —A.B.

“I gained an immense wisdom from Joan’s [online] sessions. I felt the energies during [exercises] at par as being in a workshop. This truly portrays that energy has no boundaries and it works like magic. The Andean path is unequivocally a path of mystical energies, which are so simple to work with.”  —R.P

“The teachings I have received from Joan have helped me to help others in my healing practice. These teaching will take a lifetime to master, if not a few life times. They are ongoing as we develop ourselves and our relationship with nature and other beings on this earth and perhaps elsewhere. She is very precise, clear, and takes the time to intellectually explain things. When Joan doesn’t know the source or something about the teachings, she is humble enough to make it known to you. She allows you to come to your own conclusions. She is one of the most humble women I have ever met. She is a living example of the teachings and how to use them to help yourself and others. She basically lives the teachings, and that is why these teachings exist and made it so far. Most of the work is ‘invisible’ energy movements. My strongest suggestions to anyone considering learning these teachings is to put visualisation aside and simply perceive with strong intention, as this will develop during the course and with practice. I highly recommend Joan as a teacher and the course as a whole for self-development.”  —A.B. (different student than the previous A.B.)

2021 Master Class Schedule

  • January 14 – January 28. Thursdays from 1:30 – 3:30 pm Eastern time. Registration ends December 22, 2020.
  • May 6 – May 20. Thursdays from 1:30 – 3:30 pm Eastern time. Registration ends April 16.
  • September 16 – September 30. Thursdays from 1:30 – 3:30 pm Eastern time. Registration ends August 27.

man-energy-at-forehead-compressed-adobestock_60268556This three-week class is available only to those who have completed all three sections of the Foundation Training in Andean mysticism with me, Juan Nuñez del Prado, or another teacher trained by Juan.

In this Master Class, you will be introduced to the work of Bolivian master Tata Lorenzo. Kawsay Puriy means “walking in a cosmos of living energy.” In this training, you will indeed be connecting with the world and cosmos, working in a new way with the qanchispatañan (the Stairway of Seven Steps of conscious evolution). The energy work helps you:

  • Seed the energies within yourself to become a teqse paqo, or universal paqo (high 4th level).
  • Work through your personal pachas (space-time), including your past and future, your family and the whole of humanity, your life in this human world and your connection to the universe.
  • Receive support and empowerment from the entire Pachamama and Kawsay Pacha, including many cosmic “beings” such as the planets, Milky Way galaxy, and stars.
  • Work more deeply with your Inka Seed, ñawis, and chunpis to integrate your energies with the Taytanchis/God within and the Taytanchis/God without.
  • Empower your inner three worlds: the hanaqpacha, kaypacha and ukhupacha within your own poq’po.
  • Work with the willka energy (black light energy, the most sacred of the sacred energies) in all your energy centers and your Inka Seed.
  • Contribute through your own conscious evolution to the rise of the Runakay Mosoq, the New Humanity.

In essence, this work is not only about being part of the cosmos, but feeling the cosmos as a living energy within your own poq’po. It is the connection with everything. It is sending energy “ahead of you” to help you progress faster, cleanse yourself more deeply, and reach the higher 4th level more quickly. It is a way to be supported and empowered by the entire cosmos of living energy and all the spirit beings of the cosmic realms.

The training runs for three consecutive weeks, meeting weekly for two hours each class online on the free Zoom conferencing platform. The class is audio only, and you will be provided audio recordings of each class for your private use only (via download from Dropbox).

Many students  who can’t meet with us live take this course through the audio recordings only. It easily lends itself to that form of learning.

The cost of the three-week class is a single payment of $210 USD ($230 USD if paying by foreign currency), payable by Paypal or check. Space is limited.

Please note that you must have completed the three-part “foundation” training in Andean mysticism with me or another teacher in order to take this course.

Advanced Classes for students who have completed the Foundation Training series. 

How do you deepen your practice and knowledge of Andean mysticism? What additional important information is there that was not able to be covered because of time constraints in the Foundation Training or Master Class? How would taking a deep dive into specific aspects of the Andean mystical tradition enrich your understanding of the energy practices and how best to apply them in your life? 

The Advanced Classes are one-time classes for those paqos who have taken the Foundation Series and are hungry to explore the finer points of the Andean cosmovision and energy practices. There will be five classes in 2021, each on a different topic. 

  • All classes will be held on a Thursday afternoon, from 1:30 – 3 pm Eastern time, with at least one hour of lecture and ample time for questions.
  • We will meet online on the free Zoom conferencing platform. 
  • Audio files will be provided after the class to all participants for their private use only.
  • You may participate only via the recording if your schedule doesn’t allow you to participate live.

Cost, Date, and Topic:
All classes are $60 USD nonrefundable, or if paying by Paypal with foreign currency $70 USD nonrefundable. Class size is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Contact Joan at QentiWasi@gmail.com to register. 

 ~ February 25: Update about Your Poq’po and Practice. I keep learning more from don Juan and don Ivan, including about such fundamental energetic entities as our ñawis and poq’po. Corrections, refinements, expansions: I share with you the ways that in late 2020 I had to revise my understanding of some aspects of the mystical eyes and energy field, of a few of our energy practices, and of our approach to the tradition in general. If you took the Foundation Training before the fall of 2020, you might want to join me in revisiting and updating this information. Registration deadline is February 4, 2021.

~ April 22: Quechua Terms of Andean Mysticism. You might think that karpay is your power at the moment or refers to a transmission of energy, but it means much more than that and it doesn’t mean either of those things by literal definition. While you might think that while sami and hucha refer to light living energy and heavy living energy respectively, they actually don’t literally mean that. Exploring their actual definitions will enrich your understanding of these terms and the core energy dynamics of our practices. We will examine these and other of the core Quechua terms of Andean energy dynamics to discover the nuances in their meanings that will enlighten you and expand your appreciation of your practice in surprising ways. Registration deadline is April 2,

~ June 10: Pushing the Kawsay. You know you are making energetic interchanges with the living energy. You know you can accumulate personal power to drive energy to manifest desires, improve conditions in your life, and so much more. But as a paqo and a human being what is your actual relationship to reality? How much influence can you have? How responsible (or not) are you for the condition of our life and your world? We will drill down into the Andean cosmovision of the nature of reality, the influence of ayni interchanges, how will and intent play into these interchanges, and your overall relationship as a human being with the field of living energy. Registration ends May 14.

~  August 26: Achieving Holy Relationships. Did you know that there is a energetic “stairway” of relationship and that it is actually not so easy to climb it? It takes a lot of work to achieve the higher levels of relationship, which are masintin-yanatin and tawantin dynamics. There is no guarantee you will be able to develop a relationship to these higher levels, and, truthfully, it is actually rather rare. You can’t get there until you have achieved the levels of munay and ayni. And there are stages or steps within them as well. We’ll take a look at each stage of this energetic development to arrive at a clearer understanding of what a truly conscious and harmonious (what I call a holy) relationship is. Registration ends August 2.

~  October 21: All About the Despacho. We don’t take a very deep dive into the despacho in the Foundation Training. This class will provide a chance to do so. Since the despacho is the great teacher of ayni, because making one is all about your ayni, we will examine both the inner and outer aspects of making and offering a despacho. We’ll talk about the despacho in relation to the spirit beings, to masintin-yanantin energies, to its mast’ay (structure and organization), and more. Registration ends October 1.

    1. Hi Constance,

      Because the training is progressive, you have to take the earlier workshops to be able to do the final one, which is the lloq’e work. So they are comprised of the people/group who have progressed together through the training. It might be possible to do the lloq’e alone if you have gone through similar training elsewhere, but that is highly unusual, especially since I don’t know of anyone but Juan who teaches the chaupi work the way he/his teaching-former students do. You can check out the Upcoming Trainings tab under the Learn the Andean Sacred Arts to keep up with training locations.


      1. Joan, thanks for your response. California/february looks possible. The prices are very honest. I will contact you as I know more about my schedule. I did reply to you but perhaps not to this technologies liking as I do not see it. Munay, Constance


  1. Kind thanks for your response Joan. I rather thought you would respond as you have. While i do have a lengthy (nearly 30 years) alignment with medicine work in general, and 14 years working with Andean practices-I respect that what you offer is different. The reason I inquired is because I steward 2 older lloke mestanas and find my work to be centered thusly. It may be the case that i can not afford the entire training but I will take your suggestion into considersation. Warm regards, Constance.


  2. Joan, I do not see that my reply posted? Calif-February looks possible for me. I will contact you when i know more. Munay. Constance


  3. Joan, do you have plans to teach another Pana in Ca.?
    I see that the one in Feb. is closed to new registration.
    I would love to attend this training early 2016 if possible in Ca.
    Thank you.


  4. Hi, Joan, I am interested in the retreat in June. I don’t think I’ll be able to return to Castroville for your continuing sessions and my husband and I book TWO one week vacations for 2016 … one was in August your Shadow week and the other is your shadow weekend in December. So I’m accepting it was meant for me (at least at this time.) Pictures on Facebook of Peruvian pilgrimage were wonderful!! I’m looking forward to hearing about it from Jack Quirk. sweet munay, April Lanz


    1. Hi April, I have put you down for the week-long training in June. Yes, Peru was magnificent. Jack didn’t end up coming on our trip. But Judy Ann was there. Had a fantastic group and a magical time.


  5. Is there still room for April’s class? Would like to register by check? Or do you have Venmo or cash app for taking initial payment? Let me know, unknown if this is full already. Thank you, Lupe Ramirez
