The word Munay-Ki is a Quechua concept that means the "power of love", referring to the unconditional love that the Creator has for the Creation.
The Munay-Ki can erase both karmic and genetic wounds from the past. Munay-Ki updates DNA allowing a person to create a new body that heals, ages, and dies in a different, more favorable way.
The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a period of great transformation, and foretell the birth of a new human – people of wisdom and compassion who courageously step beyond fear and abide in their essential nature: Homo luminous.
The rites of the Munay-Ki are transmissions that initiate us into this evolutionary journey. Munay, in the Quechua language, means love in the sense of a pure and unconditional presence and kindness. Ki means power, not over others, but as taming our egoic tendencies and allowing our loving essence to arise.
Thus, Munay-ki is thepower of the awakened heart which allows us to connect with nature and others in a more authentic and expansive manner.
The Munay-Ki is based on initiatory practices of the shamans from the Peruvian Andes and Amazon jungle.
In 2005, after decades of learning with these high shamans, Dr. Alberto Villoldo was ready to launch the first Munay-Ki course with their blessings. At that point, I was already involved helping create a new form that would make the rites accessible to the modern person. This means the rites were stripped from their indigenous rituals while still retaining intact their powerful essence.
Since, the Munay-Ki has been elegantly offered as a complete body of wisdom facilitating the breakthrough from the selfish and small ‘me’ to the expansive consciousness of an Earth Keeper with prophetic vision, and a compassionate creative heart.
1. The Healers Rite
It connects us to an ancient lineage of medicine women and men who encourage us towards our personal alchemy. To be a healer for others, we must know from our own experience how to transform our wounds into sources of wisdom and compassion. This lineage accompanies us on our path to harmony and well-being.
2. The Bands of Power
These are five energetic belts woven around the body with the essence of each element: earth, water, fire, air, and pure light. These bands strengthen our connection with nature and act as filters disintegrating negative and heavy energies, thus protecting us physically and psychically.
3. Harmony Rite
It connects us to animal spirits Serpent, Jaguar, Hummingbird, Eagle, and Condor that reset our instincts so we can maintain physical and emotional integrity. For example, they warn us about the right relationships with people, at the right times, and at the right places. In addition, it connects us to the Guardians of the three mythical worlds: upper, middle, and lower. These keepers guide our evolution, instigating us to heal our past and guiding us to a healthy and auspicious future.
4. The Seer
It establishes new neural connections between the visual cortex, the third eye, and the heart. Thus, the inner vision of the invisible world of subtle energies is awakened together with the grace of those who see with the eyes of love and compassion.
5. The Day Keeper
It initiates us to a lineage of medicine men and women who bring health and harmony to a community by activating and feeding their altars. The elements earth, water, wind, fire, space are honored and balanced with prayers and intention so life may flow in sacred order. This lineage brings great awareness of the gentle and receptive qualities of life, healing and empowering our relationship to the feminine.
6. The Wisdom Keeper
The wisdom of this lineage is not about accumulating information in our heads the way a computer does on its hard drive. The Alto Mesayok remembers how to dialogue with nature, understanding in their hearts the energy that moves her cycles and rhythms. In the Andes they are renowned for their ability to call lightning and for their intimate connection with the guardian spirits of the mountains.
7. The Earth Keeper
These men and women have the truest and broadest vision about the meaning of life on Earth. They are not the ones handling the greatest amount of theories and scientific data about the evolution of species. Rather, they have the perspective of life from the consciousness of the sun and the stars that illuminate us. In the mystical Andes they are recognized as the ascended masters who communicate with the stars and masticate their knowledge to deliver it in a soft, discreet, and digestible way to their peoples. Just as a mother chews food for her baby who doesn't have teeth.
8. The Times to Come
This initiation awakens the perception of our possible future, warning us about the dangers and opportunities; about the horrors and the beauty. It is the awareness of prophets who do not only know the prophecy from a distance, but take an active role in affecting change for a better destiny. From the point of view of Dr. Alberto Villoldo, this initiation opens the doorway to lucidly participate in our evolution from 'homo sapiens' to 'homo luminous'.
9. The Creator
This initiation stimulates us to discover our infinite nature not separated from the creative source and all of creation; makes us sensible to our manifesting power and teaches us to dream the world into being. The Taitanchis Rantis makes us realize that creating is not only a privilege, but also a responsibility, for which, it invites us to create with great love and courage.
10. The Rite of the Womb
It is a healing and a blessing connecting us toa lineage of women who freed themselves from suffering. This lineage wants us to remember that “the womb is not a place to store fear or pain; the womb is to create and give birth to life. The womb must be a pure vessel as it bears the generations to come.
