Peruvian Shamanism - The Pachakuti Mesa by Matthew Magee. From the back cover of the Book: There is an inherent human urge to explore and understand the mysteries of the universe and to discover the role we play within it. In addition, there has also been a consistent inner call to dive into the depths of our hearts, to explore human potential, and to live as examples of authenticity and truth. The Pachakuti Mesa is a personal alter used ceremonially to access spiritual forces and energies for the purposes of healing, the advancement of consciousness, and the restoration of balance on both individual and collective levels. This system of medicine work stems from the Earth-based shamanic practice of Northern Coastal and Southeastern Andean regions of Peru. Ultimately, the Pachakuti Mesa acts as the shamans's tool, an instrument of sacred technology, which is used to access and cultivate an intimate relationship with Spirit, which in its nature is mystery.

"Mateo Magee's revision of Peruvian Shamanism is especially relevant at a time when this venerable tradition is in the midst of a renaissance in Peru and abroad. The first edition was truly ground-breaking in that, for the first time, it documented the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of cross-cultural shamanism pioneered by his teacher, don Oscar Miro-Quesada. In addition to updating his efforts to bring these ancient teachings to a wider audience, Mateo also brings his own personal experience with renowned Peruvian shamans and indigenous First Nation practitioners to bear on his subject matter. In this regard, he is a highly qualified 'translator' and eminently gifted teacher with a lifetime of dedicated service to the work of human spiritual growth and development."

"Peruvian mesa shamanism spans several traditions and countless centuries. In this remarkable book, Matthew Magee has distilled the essence of its oral traditions, its disciplined practices, and its ritual performances. The result is an accessible narrative that provides his readers with a treasured gift, one that will move them and, in some cases, change the way they live their lives."

"Since first encountering the powerful, magical universe of the Peruvian mesa tradition through the shaman don Eduardo Calderon, I have been waiting for this book. It is a clear, scholarly account of mesa practice; [it explains] its place in the larger shamanic tradition, the metaphysical geography, the archetypal powers and beings, and how to construct successful ceremonies for healing purposes. Matthew Magee has done an excellent job both of researching and writing this core study on Peruvian shamanism. Here on the magician-healer's small table of symbols hovers the entire universe of accessible powers. The book discusses these spiritually charged matters in a readable, clear, and ethical presentation of how the shaman can prepare and work with these spiritual powers."
-Dr. Stephen Larsen, author of The Shaman's Doorway and other books.
"While I have studied and written about Peruvian mesa traditions for almost 20 years, in this text Matthew Magee makes the mesa understandable, accessible, and useful. He is a very gifted healer and teacher and his talents are apparent in this text. His book is the definitive work about the Pachakuti Mesa tradition."
