Munay Ki

9 Rites

The next training will take place in Athens

from 1 to 3 December 2023

at The Healing Partners venue

(Paparrigopoulou 47, Agia Paraskevi)

The Rites are transmitted by Maria Ariadne, Shamanic healer and Wisdomkeeper

She began her journey into the shamanic tradition in 2013 by completing the Shamanic Medicine Wheel and several advanced shamanic seminars with Jane Rigby, first generation student of Alberto Villoldo.

What is Munay Ki

It is a three-day, intensive training in the transmission of the 9 Great Rites of the Andes, for our evolution into persons of wisdom and noble power.

It is a journey of personal empowerment, healing and remembrance of our true nature, on a path that allows us to walk the Earth in beauty, peace and abundance.

Munay Ki is an introduction to the world of Shamans, without necessarily adopting their art. These three days we will begin to see through the eyes of the shamans, as we will experience and learn some ancient, timeless techniques of this spiritual path.

The Munay Ki is your invitation to dream an entire new world into being
-Alberto Villoldo

During our intensive three-day Munay Ki apprenticeship:

Dream the World through Love!

Unconditional love!

From lack to Grace

There are so many gifts one receives through the experience of Munay ki that it is difficult to explain them in words. "Munay" in the Quechua language means "I love you as you are".

Munay Ki truly signifies the transformative and miraculous power of Love.

The rituals of Munay Ki heal us deeply from the traumas of the past. And this magnificent work is only possible by Love in its clear, pure form.

From Love which, as the highest manifestation of intellect, sustains the very fabric of life.

The 9 Rites 

The 4 Foundation Rites

The Healers' Rite or 

Hampe Karpay

The Hampe blessing comes from the Q'ero mountain people.

It connects you to a lineage of light beings from the past, who come to assist you in your personal transformation.

It awakens the healing power in your hands so that whoever you touch will be blessed.

There is tremendous spiritual help available and these luminaries work in our sleep or when we meditate to heal the wounds of our past or even of our ancestors.

The Bands of Power Rite 

It is about weaving into our luminous energy field five zones of protection. They act as filters, which deconstruct any heavy (negative) energy that comes our way, into one of the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether-wisdom).  These energies then nourish the light energy body, rather than weaken it. The Bands of Power and Protection were transmitted by Juan Victor Nuñez del Prado, Villoldo's friend and colleague, whose father was one of the discoverers of the Q'ero nation.

The Harmony Rite or 

Ayni Karpay

It is the energy transmission of the seven Archetypes to our energy centers (chakras) in the form of seeds. First you will get the Snake, Jaguar, Hummingbird and Eagle. Then you get three archangels, the Guardian of the Underworld (our unconscious), the Guardian of the Middle World (the world we live in), and the Guardian of the Upper World (our superconscious).

The Harmony Rite comes from the Q'ero plains and the Huachipayre people from the edge of the Amazon.

Villoldo learned this from don Alejandro Cajuanci, a famous healer.

The Seer's Rite or


An outer neurological pathway of light, connecting the visual cortex to the third eye and heart chakra. This awakens the "Inner Seer" and your ability to perceive the unseen world with the eyes of the heart.

The Seer's rite is practiced among the peoples of the North Coast of Peru (descendants of the Chimu and Moche cultures) and by the soothsayers and trackers of the Amazon.

The 3 Lineage Rites

The Day Keepers Rite or 

Pampa Mesayok  

The rite of the Day Keepers is known among the Andean Paqos as Pampamesayok, referring to the plains and valleys of the "pampa" and the mesa or altar. 

The Day Keepers were the masters of the ancient stone monuments found at sacred sites throughout the world, from Stonehenge to Machu Picchu.

Day Keepers can invoke the power of ancient places of worship to bring healing and balance, call the sun to rise, heal with herbs and flowers and bring man into balance with the earth.

The fifth ritual heals the inner feminine side and puts us back in touch with intuition. It removes fear and brings calmness and peace.

The Wisdom Keepers Rite or 

Alto Mesayok

This rite is associated with the snow-capped mountain peaks  and the wise Mountain Mystics.

This rite helps us heal our masculine side, work "outside of Time", deeply understand the teachings of the energy medicine path and taste the eternity of existence.

The Wisdom Keepers Rite is known among the Andean Paqos as the rite of the Altomesayok, referring to the high mountains of the Andes.

It was given to Villoldo by Don Manuel Quispe, great Altomesayok of the Q'ero.

The Earth Keepers Rite or 

Kurak Akullek

The Earth Keepers Rite is known among the Shamans of the Andes, the Paqos, as the Kurak Akuyek rite, referring to the elder who "masticates" the wisdom to nurture the young who follow.

This initiation connects you with the archangels who are the guardians of our galaxy, the caretakers of all life on Earth.

It connects you to the stars and to the Sun, our local star.

It helps you learn how to visualize and dream the creation and manifestation of a new world consciously.

The 2 Rites of the Time to come

The Star Keepers Rite or 

Mosak Karpay

The Star Keepers Rite is known as Mosoq Karpay, which means the "new rite" in the Qechua language.

This rite announces and prepares one for the "time to come."

This ritual helps you overcome the time of great change that is already taking place.

Your physical body begins to evolve into that of the homo luminous, the aging process slows down, your DNA is updated and you become more resistant to disease.

The eighth initiation brings you back into 'right relation' with the wider universe, the Sun and the stars and creates the conditions for you to connect with your personal and collective higher Destiny.

The Creator's Rite or

 Tai Tan Chi Ranti

 This rite is known as the Taitanchis.

The word Taitanchis literally translates as "God". It awakens the light of the Creator within us and establishes a sense of responsibility and care for all of Creation, from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies in the universe.

At one time this was only done by direct transmission from the Spirit.

Today, person-to-person transmission is possible. The ninth rite helps us understand our important contribution and place within the Universe.

It removes all the limiting aspects of the self that hold us back and helps us begin to exist in a new way.

Dream the World through Love!

Munay Ki energy transmissions help us heal our old wounds, get rid of what we don't need, (such as karmic and genetic programming, or inherited beliefs), and, like a big hand reaching out from the future into the present, pulling us irreversibly towards our best version and our highest destiny.

By bringing these energies down into our field, we create a light structure that will create and hold a new dream, a paradise of peace, harmony and love for the planet, which we can manifest in our lives.
