Rites of the Munay-Ki

The word Munay-Ki comes from a Quechua word meaning, “I love you,” and “Be who though art.”

Based in the Inkan traditions of the shamans of the Peru and the Andes, the Munay-Ki are nine rites of initiation, said to prepare us energetically for this time and the time to come.  


The Munay-ki rites both heal and renew us. If you fully engage with them, these energetic transmissions offer the potential to re-inform your energy body, raise your vibration and transform your life.

For those called and willing to become a holder of ancient wisdom and power, and to accept the stewardship for all creation, they represent an opportunity to step away from the world as we know it and to begin to create something new.

Receiving the Munay-Ki Rites

Offering the Munay-ki rites is the shaman's way to be of service to the community and the planet.  While there is no charge to receive the rites, they are traditionally "gifted." In other words,  the recipient of the rites will offer the giver a small, simple gift to acknowledge gratitude and reciprocity for the exchange. These small gifts are often found, created or purchased treasures that are given from the heart of one to the heart of another.

You do not need any prior experience, training or knowledge of Shamanism to receive these rites, only a desire to do so. If you wish to receive the rites, or have a group of friends and family that would like to receive these rites together, please contact Lorraine to learn more.
