What is Munay-Ki?
“Munay” in Quechua language means “love”, and the Japanese word “Ki” means the flow of energy. According to Dr. Alberto Villoldo, Munay-Ki comes from a Quechua word that means “I love you”. Quechua is the original language still spoken by many of the Q’ero Nation today in Peru.
Munay-Ki Rites are based on the traditional initiation ceremonies of the Shaman’s Path of the Q’ero nation, the descendants of the Inka, the indigenous people of the holy mountains (Apu) of the Andes in Peru. These Rites are gifted to us as energetic seeds into our physical bodies. As we germinate these seeds within us, it opens us up to the vast potential within us and to the many possibilities that exits beyond our material practical reality of linear time and space to heal the wounds of the past-the karmic & genetic programs and beliefs you inherited. They re-inform your DNA, enabling you to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently. It heals us and transform our human energy field into “Homo Luminous” or “Beings of Light”.
Munay-Ki is refined by Dr. Alberto Villoldo who studied the rites of the Inka Shamans with a number of mentors over a period of years living with them in the Andes Mountains of Peru throughout the Andes and the Amazon. The energy of Munay-Ki Rites are profound and powerful. The form and substance of the Rites had been codified into a modern form of transmitting the initiations to empower us in our transformation journey
A message from Dr. Alberto Villoldo:
“Rites of passage and initiation have been practiced for millennia by all peoples in the Earth. The rites of the Munay-Ki are based on initiatory practices of the shamans of the Andes and the Amazon. They are stripped of all trace of the indigenous cultures they come from. I did this to respect the native traditions, and to avoid the idea that persons from the West can become traditional shamans or Indians. I offer these rites with full permission from my teacher, Don Manuel Quispe, who was the last great medicine man of the Q’ero Inka nation. Any fault or flaw in their presentation is exclusively my own.”
- The Healer’s Rite is known as the Hampe blessing and comes from the highland Q’ero people.
- The Bands of Power were transmitted by Juan Victor Nuñez del Prado, a friend and colleague, whose father was one of the discoverers of the Q’ero nation.
- The Harmony Rite comes from the lowland Q’ero, the Huachipayre people from the edge of the Amazon. I learned it from don Alejandro Cahuanchi, a renowned healer.
- The Seer’s rite is practiced among the North Coast peoples of Peru, (the descendants of the Chimu and Moche cultures), and by the seers and trackers of the Amazon.
- The Daykeeper’s Rite is known among the Andean Paqos as the Pampamesayok, referring to the lowlands and valleys of the ‘pampa’, and to the mesa or altar.
- The Wisdomkeeper’s Rite is known among the ndean Paqos as the Altomesayok rite, referring to the high mountains of the Andes. Don Manuel Quispe was the great Altomesayok of Q’ero.
- The Earthkeeper’s Rite is known among the Andean Paqos as the Kurak Akuyek rite, referring to the elder who ‘masticates’ the wisdom to nurture the young ones who follow.
- The Starkeeper’s Rite is known as the Mosoq Karpay, which means the ‘new rite’ in the Qechua language. This rite announces and prepares one for the ‘time to come.’
- The Creator Rite is known as the Taitanchis rite. The word Taitanchis literally translates as ‘God.’

These rites are not only stages of initiation, but perhaps steps for the evolution of humanity. As nations fight for bits of territory and battle over land, we must find the wisdom to create peace among all peoples. As our space telescopes show us images of a vast and immeasurable Universe, we must find a human story that is inclusive of the stars. And as our ability to destroy the world increases, we are called to step up to the task of assuming stewardship for all creation.
In essence, the rites are about stewardship. They are not ego-awards or recognition of any kind of achievement, nor do they make anyone special. On the contrary, they make one uniquely unimportant. Only then, from a position of no-ego, can we truly be of service.
The nine Rites were brought to the Americas by the first medicine men and women or the mountain peoples migrated to lush grasslands or crossed the Siberian ice into the thick forests of the American continent more than 100,000 years ago. These courageous travellers were the Laika, the Earthkeepers of the old. The Laika who are the Earthkeepers have always been ordinary men and women who live extraordinary lives. They were not born with special gifts from Spirit; they have acquired uncommon grace and power through prayer, study of the wisdom teachings or insights, and discipline. Some grew to be renowned leaders and healers, while others lived quiet lives, raising their children and growing corn. It is believed that people would come to the Munay-Ki when they were ready and felt a calling to do so.
