Winter 2020 Andean Online Training Schedule

A new 11-week online course runs from January 15 to March 17, 2020

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 11-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 (5 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.

The new course will be held on Tuesdays, from January 14 through March 17, 2020, running two hours each class from 1:30 – 3:30 pm Eastern time. To register and for price information, please email Joan at QentiWasi@gmail.com. If you cannot make this class time, you can take the course via the recordings.

What Past Students Have Said About the Online Training:

“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.

“The beauty of the internet is that we have the potential to learn from many great masters and teachers without leaving the comfort of our own homes.  Joan Wilcox is one of those amazing teachers. Recently I took her Andean Cosmovision workshop, a three-month, interactive workshop where Joan guided us through some of the shamanic energy practices she has learned based upon her 25-year study and apprenticeship within the Andean culture.  Having taken courses and trainings from some of the world’s most renown teachers, I found Joan’s work exceptional. Her knowledge of the teachings and impeccability in sharing the lineage was deeply profound. The material presented was thorough, complete and enlightening.  So much so that I plan to invite Joan to my hometown for a LIVE training or meet with her somewhere in the US!”  —T.W.

“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.)

    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
