Presentation of the route
The teaching of the Andean Tradition has been subdivided by Don Juan Nuñez del Prado – who is the one who has recovered and systematised it in thirty years of work alongside the indigenous masters – into three teaching modules: Phaña (the right side), Chaupi (the middle side), Lloque (the left side).
These three modules form the gateway to the resources and knowledge needed by a Paqo (practitioner of the Andean Tradition) and constitute the Amaru Cycle.
Subsequently, for those who wish to further deepen their knowledge of the tradition, there are two more cycles: the Cycle of the Puma and the Cycle of the Condor. Here we will explore the various possibilities of the Paqo to make use of tradition to intervene in the world around him in a competent and effective manner. The modules of the second and third cycles are the result of work carried out over the last twelve years by Dario Astengo – anthropologist and researcher – in the Peruvian regions of Q’Ero, Ausangate and Titicaca.
Completion of all the modules that make up the Amaru Cycle is necessary for access to more advanced training. (info: email@example.com)
– AMARU CYCLE –
✤ Phaña – The Right Side [17/18 FEBRUARY 2024] – 09.30/18.00 –
Conducted by Simone Giannini – at Yoga in Centro, Florence
Connecting to the energies of the cosmos, transforming heavy energies, initiation into the Inka lineage. In this seminar the techniques of the Phaña, or right side of the tradition, from the teachings of the indigenous master Don Benito Qoriwaman of the Wasau community will be taught. The techniques in this module teach how to effectively connect and enter into relationship with the world of living energies that surround us. Activating the power of Yachay, i.e. knowledge through the direct experience of energy, is the mystical and structural side of the teaching. Through the work of connecting with the energies of the cosmos and by receiving formal initiation into the Inka lineage, one learns to manage and transform the heavy energies, to navigate between the different forms of energy and relationships, and teaches the practitioner to develop a harmonious and personal relationship with the living cosmos, leading him or her to be constantly nourished and empowered.
✤ Chaupi – The Middle Side [23/24 MARCH 2024] – 09.30/18.00 –
Conducted by Simone Giannini – at Yoga in Centro, Florence
Healing through birth, death, the integration of relationships and the power of love with willingness.
In this seminar the techniques belonging to the teachings of the master Don Andres Espinoza of Q’ero will be taught. The practices in this module teach how to activate the ability to heal oneself and others through the cultivation of the Munay, the power of the heart. Chaupi is the part of the tradition most related to healing, and therefore focuses on this life, the reality between birth and death and the energies we share with other human beings, transforming the reality of social relationships into a source of power and healing. Through work on opening and interconnecting energy centres and a sequence of collective practices and energy circles, we will experience the creative and healing potential of integrating ourselves and others.
✤ Lloque – The Left Side – date to be confirmed in April
The help of allies to activate the energetic core of the individual, manifest inner magical potential and transform our reality. In this module, techniques from the teachings of Don Melchor Deza of the Wasau community will be taught. This part of the teaching focuses on the use of energy to transform everyday reality in a concrete way, and is therefore considered the magical and practical side of the tradition. Working from within the human energy structure, the magical and transformative potential of the individual’s energy core is contacted. With the help of intelligent energy forms called allies, it is possible to refine, activate inner energies, and manifest them as true powers, moving energy through sight, voice and movement. After the work of connecting and integrating the energies of the cosmos with the right side, and the development of healing energy and relationships with the middle side, with the left side it is finally possible to acquire tools to manifest all qualities in an individual way, directly from the core of human potential, finally giving body and form to one’s own power personal power.
A professional Shiatsu operator, over the years he has experienced various energetic-spiritual paths, following an existential transformation. Among these, in addition to Shiatsu, the most important and formative have been Astroschamanism with Franco Santoro, Reiki, and finally the Andean Spiritual Tradition, which he has learnt and practised over the last seven years through the teachings of Massimo Romagnolo and Dario Astengo, and also receiving initiations and knowledge from several Andean masters from the Q’Ero nation. It is a learning and research that continues to this day, with the intention, in addition to pursuing personal growth, of supporting and helping people who need it to recover and maintain their energetic, psycho-physical and emotional balance and to follow their own evolutionary path.
Anthropologist, scholar of cosmovision, spirituality and ritual practices of indigenous peoples and archaic or traditional societies. He dedicates his research to the knowledge of living energy through different disciplines and spiritual traditions, discovering and devoting himself above all to shamanic arts. In addition to working with different shamans from various parts of South America, the Amazon from Siberia and the Himalayas, since 2008 he has been particularly dedicated to the Andean spiritual path, in which he was initiated and trained by Juan Nuñez Del Prado, and which he later deepened by travelling and living in the Andes, working directly with dozens of indigenous masters in their communities, receiving all their teachings and initiations from them. Author of the most recent discoveries on the Andean Mystical Tradition, he currently focuses his research in the regions of Q’eros, Ausangate, Cusco and the Sacred Valley of Cusco, the coast and islands of Lake Titicaca. In the course of his constant research, he lives travelling through these indigenous communities collecting teachings and learning the shamanic arts of these traditions.
