I offer death rites in the Q’ero Shaman tradition. The rites are a manifestation of ancient Incan wisdom that facilitates healing across multiple dimensions. They serve the dying and their loved ones — and Mother Earth and the universe as a whole — by helping transition the spirit from the human body to its full return to source.

About Q'ero Death Rites

While most often conducted with a dying human or shortly after death, these death rites do not require a physical body or my in-person presence to "work." They are effective across all dimensions of space and time, and as such they can be conducted anywhere at any time. And the death at the heart of the rites does not have to be a human one… Death rites can be conducted for animals, relationships, events — anything transitioning from one manifestation to its next iteration.

 

Free of dogma

Q’ero death rites are sacred, yes — but they are completely free of dogma, rules, or any other limiting beliefs. Bottom line: you need not hold a certain religion or belong to any certain faith system to solicit or benefit from the rites. Your only job is to be open and allow. I provide all the necessary tools, and I will explain the entire process in detail. 

 

Full of meaning

While the rites present as relatively brief (fewer 30 minutes) and “easy” to conduct, they are profoundly meaningful, helpful, and hopeful. I love offering them and am blessed to witness their powerful medicine — for the dying but also for everyone who loves the dying.

The Q’ero people sought refuge in the high Andes when the lands they inhabited were invaded by the Spanish conquistadors in the 1500s. By living remotely, the they protected their culture and beliefs, which are based on living in close connection with Earth. Simple yet fundamentally beautiful concepts such as reciprocity, love, and balance are what “govern” their lives.

Q'ero Shamanism

Q’ero (Care-oh) Shamans are ancient wisdom keepers from the Peruvian Andes, commonly understood to be direct descendants of the Inca. They are known as “Keepers of The Key,” having maintained sacred Incan teachings, codes, and spiritual cosmovision for centuries — first in isolation to protect their culture, and now in contemporary teaching, as they have decided to share their wisdom with those of us across the planet who are answering a call to help heal.

From the Andes to Amy?

The Q’ero Shamans are the culture’s medicine men and women, mystics, and spiritual guides who facilitate cleansing, purifying, healing and uplifting ceremonies — including the death rites I now offer. Which begs the questions…

 

How does a suburban St. Louis mom come to conduct ancient Incan ceremony from the high Andes? And why?

It's time.

Only recently, Q’ero shamans have come down from their high mountain home to actively share their culture — namely, their healing wisdom — with the whole of us, who are in such great need of remembering. This time we navigate now was prophesized lifetimes ago by Q’ero elders (and other sages from seemingly unrelated cultures across the planet). The events of our contemporary lives have signaled to the Q’ero shamans that it’s time — it’s time for them to safely disperse into the larger world and help us reconnect to the wisdom of our ancestors, to listen once again to the Earth, to spirit, to intuition.

 

The Death Rites ceremony was passed and entrusted to me through a female shaman initiated in the Q’ero tradition. I am blessed and humbled to carry this wisdom, extending a sacred lineage of healing to others open to its medicine.
