What if I can’t attend sessions live?

Not to worry! We have designed this program to work even for those with busy schedules, as well as for those that live in different time zones.

While we hope you’ll attend as many live sessions as possible, you’ll be able to stream recordings of each weekly class, integration, and elective session. You’ll never have to worry about missing a session, and you can watch them anytime and anywhere at your convenience.

If you are unable to join sessions live, we request that you access the replay within the same week of the teaching to stay up on the material. All recordings can be accessed on the Program Homepage. Recordings become available within 48 hours after each class and written transcripts within one week. You have ongoing access to these materials.

Pucllay Small Group gatherings are NOT recorded and do require live attendance. That being said, there will be a variety of meeting days/times available, so you can sign up for a group that fits your schedule. Pucllay Groups meet once per month.

Will I need any materials for this program?

In preparation for our work together, you will need the following materials in order to create your Mesa, your personal altar. Please gather these items for our first unit together in July/August.

Mesa cloth woven from Pachamama’s natural fibers. This can be any cloth, and is typically handwoven, approximately 68 x 68 cm square (27 inches). You can source this anywhere you like. Puma has some Andean textiles available from his local weavers on the Noqan Kani site. 

A second cloth, in plain white, to be used as an inner cloth (about the same size or a bit smaller than the cloth above).

12 Kuyas (sacred stones). These can be rocks, gemstones, or crystals. They can be bought or found in nature. Each kuya should fit comfortably in your hand.

1 translucent crystal (clear quartz, aquamarine, amethyst, citrine, etc.) for the center of your altar. This crystal should be a little bigger than your kuyas.

Even if you already have a Mesa that you work with, Puma suggests creating a new one just for this immersion program. However, if you’re feeling the call, you can reprogram a personal Mesa by renewing the allies associated with each kuya when we do our work together. 

Throughout our ceremonial work together, you may also need to gather items like flowers, smudge herbs, despacho/white mesa materials (seeds, beans, and more natural objects), etc. We will notify you in advance of these needs.

What are the immersion requirements?

To Receive a Certificate of Completion:

  • Attendance Requirements:
    • All weekly Classes (Attend live or access recording)
    • 2 Integration Sessions per month (Attend live or access recording)
    • 12 Guest Faculty Workshops (Attend live or access recording)
      • We will offer one Pucllay Small group circle per month, these are optional and not required to receive your Certificate of Completion

  • Practicum Requirements:
    • 3 integration practices where you will create ceremonial offerings and share a 300-500 word write up about your experience for feedback from the Noqan Kani team. Some Practicums will require the submission of images to complement your writing. After each quarter of the program, Puma will share a specific assignment to guide you on what you will be offering and creating. The final quarter project will be the Capstone Project, detailed below.
  • Final Capstone Project Requirement: 
    • A creative expression where you have the opportunity to design and offer your own ceremony to others and share an analysis (written, video, slide presentation, etc.) of your experience along with the experiences of your participants. You will be asking your participants for feedback that you can share publicly after your ceremony.

Receiving a Certificate of Completion for this program means you have successfully completed all the above requirements.

If I participate, how many hours per month should I plan on dedicating to this immersion program?

This will vary depending on whether a student chooses to attend all offerings or the minimum requirement, but on average, you can expect to spend approximately 16-20 hours per month on this program.

back to top

 

Is it possible to audit the program if I love to learn but don’t need a certificate of completion?

Yes! This program will provide excellent learning for everyone who wishes to immerse themselves in Puma’s traditional Peruvian ancestral wisdom. Auditing the program is an option for those who don’t feel the need for a certificate of completion. Immersion requirements would not apply; however, we encourage all participants to engage fully in the program and complete the requirements to gain the full benefit of the teachings. We particularly encourage all participants to join the Pucllay Small Group gatherings for connection, community, and integration.

Engaging in and participating in all aspects of this offering will help participants gain the full experience of the programs, inform them on whether to change to the certificate of completion track and ensure that a change to the certificate of completion track will go smoothly — and that catching up on all of the requirements and submissions will not be a heavy lift.

NOTE: the program price is the same, even if auditing.

Will there be individualized guidance?

This is a group training. However, during the classes and Integration Sessions, there will be opportunities for Q and A that might allow for direct faculty interaction. Pucllay Groups lead by Puma’s teaching assistants will be more intimate small groups for discussion, integration and community building.

back to top

 

How many people will be in this program?

In an effort to create an intimate learning environment, and ensure that each person receives an abundance of rich learning and support, we are limiting the number of students in this program. There is no exact limit and it is hard to say what the final number of students will be. Additionally, the number of students we can accommodate is always in flux, contingent upon having the right number of facilitators and the right size of participants for our small groups (typically 10-15 students per group). We will not admit more students than we have space for in our small groups. That being said, our previous year-long programs had 200 enrolled students on average, to help give a sense of what to expect.

What can I expect from the Pucllay small group gatherings and the TA group facilitators?

The Quechua word “Pucllay” translates to “ceremony” as well as “to play, have fun, and celebrate life.” Our Pucllay small groups will be a safe space for sharing your experiences with your student colleagues so that you feel strongly supported in your studies and practice. Pucllay groups also offer the opportunity for students to lead ceremonies for their small group community and practice healing work together. 

The small group Teaching Assistants selected by Puma have been chosen for their excellence in holding sacred space. Each group gathering will be opened with prayer or meditation to mark our ceremonial space. Teaching assistants will be able to inform Puma and the Shift education team about whatever may arise in the session that might need further expansion in our integration sessions. The goal of the Teaching Assistant is to ensure a sacred and safe container that creates opportunities for all voices to be heard. Groups will range from 10-15 participants.

back to top

 

What can I expect from the Integration Sessions?

Our integration sessions will be circles of powerful healing & ceremony. These online gatherings will be a wonderful opportunity to have your questions answered and your experiences supported throughout your learning and healing process. Puma, Magaly, and their special guests aim to deepen your understanding & embodiment of the ceremonies and rituals you’ll be learning in the class sessions. Based on the week’s lesson, the following integration will embellish upon rituals, history, and ways in which to offer these ceremonies to your family, community, ancestors, and/or pachamama, and more.

May my enrollment be shared with family or friends?

No. We understand that it can be helpful to share with friends and family the meaningful insights, reflections, and revelations you experience during the program.

While we encourage you to share with others what you learn in the program, we ask that you do not share any of the program materials or anything from the Homepage or private Facebook Community Group.

We maintain this policy out of respect for our Faculty and to honor the contractual agreement with them. This program has been designed to replicate an in-person training as much as possible; therefore, each enrollment is designated for that participant.

___________________________________________________________________

Here is our full Spousal Sharing Policy:

The Shift Network is happy to offer our 2-for-1 special to spouses or partners living under the same roof for most of our foundational courses with the purchase of one full-price registration. (Spousal participation is offered at the sole discretion of the Shift Network and is subject to availability. Certain exclusions may apply. The Company reserves the right to change or cancel this policy at any time.)

However, we are unable to extend this offer to participants in any of our advanced-level or application contingent programs, such as Certification Programs, Immersion Programs, Coaching or Teacher Trainings, and any courses or programs involving 1:1 faculty coaching and mentoring sessions.
___________________________________________________________________

We appreciate your inquiry about this and your commitment to being in integrity. Thank you for not sharing any program materials!

Is there an online community for this program?

Yes. Our exclusive online community is the perfect place to continue your discovery process after each class. Here, you can continue the discussion about your program materials and interact with your fellow students to take your exploration to an even deeper level.

back to top

 

How will I receive my immersion certificate of completion?

After the program completes, students who have successfully completed all immersion requirements will be emailed their certificate (60 day review period).

After a 60-day review period following completion of the program, students who successfully complete the year-long immersion requirements will be emailed their digital certificate.

back to top

 

What are the technical requirements for this program?

As this is an online professional training, intermediate technical skills are required to participate fully in this program. Students are required to have a computer or other device and will be asked to use Zoom and to complete online formative assessments and other reflections and assignments (an iPad or smartphone may suffice, but we recommend a laptop or desktop computer). Students will need to feel comfortable with basic navigation on our website and opening/playing media and other files (logging in, finding class sessions and materials, playing recordings, opening PDF files, etc.), as well as accessing an online Student Portal to submit and track program requirements. Important program information will regularly be sent via email, as well.

A Note From Puma on Cultural Appropriation and His Call to Pass on His Knowledge in This Program

These ancient oral traditions have been passed down generation after generation, for thousands of years. They belong to pachamama, mother earth— not to our people, our times, or our culture. These traditions will be here for generations to come.

In the Andean wisdom, we say “nothing is yours, because everything is for you.” This wisdom and these powerful ancestral rituals and ceremonies are here for you. They were left by our ancestors here in the Andes.

However, they don’t belong to the Andes. They’re timeless, and they belong to pachamama. These traditions have origins and many manifestations throughout the planet.

Only one of these manifestations are here in the Andes. In our culture, we don’t believe in cultural ownership, nor in “cultural appropriation” of our practices. It’s like the air we breathe — it comes from Mother Earth for you, and when you give your breath back, you give it back to the earth. You’re not taking anybody’s breath.

We acknowledge and honor the crises of cultural appropriation in other parts of the world and in other indigenous communities. We’re conscious that some of their traditions must be protected and in some cases even kept in secret.

The traditions of our Andean communities are open and ready for our planetary awakening. They were kept protected for these times, now to be shared globally.

Ritual and ceremony are a way of life for all human beings throughout the planet. We’re remembering to bless every moment of our lives as sacred ceremony. All our actions and labor become powerful rituals of healing which are part of our lives throughout the planet. We’ve always been in ceremony and we’ll always be in ceremony — we’re just doing it consciously now.
