Don Oscar calls all of us who have an earnest desire to walk a path as spiritual pioneers his "cherished shamanic bodhisattva kin." He wholeheartedly welcomes us to The Heart of the Healer : "Your presence in the unfolding of a spiritually evolved humanity is being celebrated throughout all worlds."

We are all in this together. We human beings alongside the birds, bees, atmosphere and seas of our Earth operate as one ecosystem--one organism. Together we are all participants. Thus we transcend our alienating view of ourselves as particles. Wholeness or Holiness is simply what we are in our ground.

My wife and I last interviewed don Oscar regarding his book, Lessons In Courage: Peruvian Shamanic Wisdom for Everyday Life. We barely touched on his other accomplishments. He is also a visionary founder of The Heart of the Healer Alliance, originator of Pachakuti Mesa Tradition cross-cultural shamanism, and leader of extraordinary journeys intoto the Amazon Rainforest, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Challwanka, and Nazca. He is also a founder of Sipapu, a beautiful Retreat Center in the heart of the beautiful Madre de Dios rainforest in Peru.

The vision of Sipapu is to regenerate earth-honoring communities by demonstrating ecological sustainability and cultivating the ceremonial arts of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. The mission of Sipapu is to serve individuals and communities through educational and experiential residential experiences and field programs that nurture deep connections between earth, sacred community, and spiritual growth.

How you interact with the world and what you say does matter. A true spiritual leader is not one to hand you a theology or philosophy and say "believe this way." No, a true spiritual leader helps to foster you giving birth to what's within you. This is the work of a Shaman like don Oscar.

"Do you not know that the Kingdom is within you?" Jesus Christ says. Interestingly, the term sin originally meant to "miss the mark." If we focus our powers externally on the Man dressed up in corporate garb, then are we, indeed, missing the mark and not tapping into the Cosmic Wisdom or Sophia that is within us?

I again want to repeat: In the "Gospel of Thomas," Jesus Christ says, "If you bring forth that which is within you; then that which is within you will save you. If you DO NOT bring forth that which is within you, then that which is within you will kill you."

Deep change begins in you.

Who, then, is the Savior? People like Don Oscar can counsel you in opening up to that power within yourself. A true Shaman is not so much an author-ity. Rather, he is more like a midwife. He is simply a facilitator of the Birth that you are destined to give.

Our labor is not for the man, nor is it by the man. Our labor is for the sake of all, including our selves.

The fostering of our labor--our vision, passion, and mission--is the labor of Don Oscar!
