While most spiritual traditions preach the importance of transcendence and merging with the unitary light of consciousness, the Munay-Ki guide us to also cultivate an empowered relationship with the Dark — understanding it not as something negative, but as the fertile grounds from which true power, compassion, and wisdom arise.


  • Long before the birth of modern science, the secrets of life were revealed and preserved for future generations among a clan of wisdomkeepers hidden high in the mountains of the Peruvian Andes. Marcela Lobos reveals these ancient secrets and more in her book The Sacred Andean Codes.

    In an intimate sharing of her apprenticeship with the descendants of that clan—the Q’uero people of today—Lobos reveals how the direct experience of the Munay-Ki initiations can shape our perception of life’s challenges, while leading us into our deepest healing and highest dreams.

  • Most current books about creating a better life focus on speed: life hacks, shortcuts, and mechanistic systems. But true transformation lies beyond such strategies. In The Sacred Andean Codes, Marcela Lobos encourages us to find our inherent wisdom by slowing down.

    She writes lovingly and clearly about the Munay-Ki (10 shamanic initiations) as a time-honored way to connect with and empower your true self. Her work will help you go beyond self-help to encounter true spiritual awakening.
