Munay-Ki comes from a Quechua word that means ‘I love you.’ The Munay-Ki are the nine rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power. The rites are common to all shamanic traditions, even though they are expressed in different forms and styles in different cultures. They derive from the great initiations from the Hindus Valley that were brought to the Americas by the first medicine men and women who crossed the Bering Straights from Siberia during the glacial period some 30,000 years ago. These courageous travelers were the Laika, the Earthkeepers of old who had accepted the stewardship for all creation.
The Laika are ordinary men and women who live extraordinary lives. They are not born with special gifts from Spirit; they acquire uncommon grace and power through prayer, study of the wisdom teachings or Insights, and discipline. Some grew to be renowned leaders and healers, while others lived quiet lives, raising their children and growing corn. The Laika felt that people would come to the Munay-Ki when they were ready and felt a calling to do so.
Many of you have received such a calling from Spirit, and long to make a difference in the world and in your life. When you come to the path of the Earthkeepers with sincere intention and an open heart, you’ll soon notice that you’re not alone. You’ll find yourself in the company of like-minded people who strive to live by ethics and vision. And you’ll find yourself in the company of Earthkeepers who lived on this planet many thousands of years ago, luminous beings who are now part of the great matrix of life. These Earthkeepers will add their power and vision to yours.
The training of the Earthkeepers has an energetic component, a series of initiations that help us to develop a new architecture in our luminous energy field. The rites anchor each of the critical junctures in the process of becoming homo luminous. The nine rites are the sum total of attunements that we go through as we transit from the body of a human to the body of angels.
There’s nothing you need to do to attract these luminous Earthkeepers. They’ll come to you when you invite them to do so and are ready to receive them. When the student is ready, the master appears. They will not disturb you in any way, but are available to support you in your efforts to bring a bit more light and healing into the world. They’re also there to protect you from the negativity and fearful energies in the world today.
These rites were first given to ancient teachers by angelic beings, and now are passed on from teacher to student. When an Earthkeeper gifts the Munay-Ki to a student, it is the lineage of luminous beings that transmits itself, that leaps from the head of the master to the student as they lean into each other and touch, forehead to forehead. To transfer this energetic information, the Earthkeeper simply maintains sacred space and embodies the vibration of the level she wants to transmit. While you can’t undergo these initiations on your own, once you receive them, the rites are yours to transmit to others as you wish. But there is one caveat. The rites are offered free of charge. You may charge a fee to coach a client during the changes that they will go through as they receive the rites, but not for the Munay-Ki itself.

Classes are 9 weeks, approximately 2 hours each. As a rite is received, the students then practice on each other. They learn to integrate the process of passing on the rites and feeling the connection with beings bringing through the attunement. Classes are primarily experiential.
Students receive all attunements, tools and written information to hold their own classes or pass on attunements as they see fit. I remain available for any questions or discussion of experiences related to the attunements for as long as the student requires.
