Powerhouse Education warmly welcomes Mateo back to the Bay Area - please join us.

Location: Vara Healing Arts. 850 Talbot Ave. Albany, CA 94706
With the growing interest and desire for more apprenticeship-like teachings, we are excited to offer this “foundations” workshop on creating Sacred Space. This event is open to both the beginner and the adept alike. In addition to the experiential teachings Mateo has offered in the past, he will be distilling the core components of creating sacred space in ceremony, and everyday life, into 9 essential steps. He will also be offering a breakdown for the optimal placement of ceremonial items used on the Mesa. Time will be made, as well, to explore questions, and to tailor this workshop experience to the needs and desires of the group. For those of you who have been craving more of the left-brained, practical and dialectical explanations of Peruvian Shamanism, this is an opportunity to explore.
More on the course:
For thousands of years, the spiritual traditions of Peru have been perfecting the art of creating transformational spaces for balance and healing to occur. This advanced system can be found through nearly every facet of this ancient culture. Whether it be the intentional design of their massive ceremonial cities, the functional irrigation systems they employed, or the interpersonal dynamics of their social exchange, this wisdom is found everywhere. This one-day intensive is an invitation to deepen in this ancient wisdom, and to dive into the vast potential of working with, and creating sacred space in your everyday life.

Mateo Magee, author of Peruvian Shamanism: The Pachakuti Mesa (2002), has been offering transformative events to cultivate balanced relationships and deeper connection with self, others, and the living world since 1998. He embodies the truth that all souls possess a direct connection to the Transcendent, and all beings have access to deep states of grace and awareness in every moment of their existence. His teachings revolve around living a full, authentic, inspired life through a loving involvement of what is alive in the present moment.
