In this workshop Silvia will teach you about the ancient path of the Aymara, AYMARÁ THAKY in her language. She will teach you how and when to do ceremonies to connect with the spirit of the coca leaves, Inal Mama, with the spirit of Mother Earth, Pachamama or Kolla Mama, with the spirit of your sacred place, your Huaca, and with the spirits of the mountains, called Apus or Achachilla. Depending on the time she will also teach you how to connect with the spirits of the elements water, fire and wind and the spirit of light. To learn about these ceremonies, as a way of asking permission to the spirit world, is a requirement to do any kind of healing work. She will also talk about the Seven Temples that are the steps for self-healing. This is important because we can heal ourselves through our beliefs.

Silvia Calisaya Chuquimia is a traditional Aymara healer descended from the pre-Inca people who still inhabit the southern Lake Titicaca region in the high Andes. Born and raised in a small highland village, she left as a young woman to pursue her education and a professional life, and later returned to the traditional teachings of her people. She is an expert at the ancient art of reading coca leaves for divination and healing, and is the proprietor of the Coca Leaf Museum in Puno, Peru. Coca is a sacred plant for the inhabitants of the Andes, still held in veneration among the indigenous and mestizo peoples of South America.

She says: “My mother was my first university; she was and still is a healer and midwife. I started learning many things, as well as the coca reading. I tried to seek about the origin of the coca leaves, and why people are still using them. Doing this, I found the life philosophy of the Aymaras still living in this part of the world.”
