What is the apprenticeship Program?

This is a hybrid in-person and online program diving deep into the Katari tradition of cross-cultural shamanism. Led by don Zane Curfman, author of Inka Mountain Magic, this course blends the tradition of the Q’ero in the high mountains of Peru along with other lineages of the Paqo Kuna tradition of Nature Mysticism. 

Students will have 7 in person weekends doing deep dives into the tradition including the Hatan Karpay (The Great Initiation)

What To Expect

For the in-person weekends, we meet on Friday evenings. The first Friday we will meet at a location to begin our initiation work. In subsequent weekends, we typically meet to open sacred space and have check-ins, Q & A, and possibly teachings of the tradition. 

Saturdays, especially in the first 4-5 weekends are travel days. We meet at Goddess Elite and carpool to different nature locations for our work. Some locations can be well over an hour away so it is best to bring a bagged lunch and snacks. 

We will meet back at the store at the end to debrief and cover questions before breaking for the day. 

Sundays we typically have teachings around the Mesa and learn tools and techniques to help us integrate the energy from the initiations. 

As the weekends progress, you will build your own mesa and learn how to use it to help yourself and others. 

Who is the program for?

Taking the program is not just for people who want to be a healer. The program is for personal development and can benefit anyone. 

The program also fits perfectly into other belief systems or healing modalities.

In the past, we have had students who have come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including: care givers, entrepreneurs, Investment professionals, professional healers, and many more. 

The program is designed to bring more awareness to your everyday life and help you navigate your unconscious to be more conscious. In short, it helps you to be in the world but not of the world. 


All weekends begin Friday 7-9pm

Saturday start times vary depending on the nature location and conclude at the store. 

Sunday’s start time is around 10am and goes until early to mid-afternoon.
