Earth Keepers of Tomorrow with Elizabeth Jenkins
First and foremost, we must all live our lives trusting in the future, planning to sustain the earth’s resources for our children and all other living beings. No matter when this message is found, children will forever remain our legacy. Elizabeth will speak to the importance of building bridges between our culture and the Q'ero, allowing the Q'ero and us to evolve together into a better society. The Inkan prophecy carried down through the lineage of Sapa Inkas and Qoyas to modern times is actually a kind of map that not only reveals something of such tantamount importance as our own spiritual heritage, but also marks the pathway to our very future—complete with road signs—for the potential evolution of the human race. The Inkas’ wisdom rivals modern physics in its understanding of the world as living energy; but, unlike modern physics, the Inkas evolved a highly sophisticated, yet simple, set of spiritual tools teaching us how to interact with, and even direct, the flows of this world of living energies. According to the Inka, we inhabit a living universe called Kausay Pacha, “world of living energy,” a world in which everyone and indeed everything is alive and has consciousness. In this overabundant universe, Pachamama—Mother Earth—is a generous, fecund and loving mother. We are only able to grow and develop our “Inka seed,” the potential in every person, with the help of this loving mother. Elizabeth will speak to the heart of the children and the important role they play in the evolution of the prophecy. Please consider making a donation to The Wiraqocha Foundation.

Heart-Based Learning for a Head-Strong World with Bonnie Glass-Coffin
"The unexamined life is not worth living!" declared Socrates when on trial for encouraging his students to challenge the accepted beliefs of the times. Bonnie will speak to the notion of how shamanic masters are opening travelers to the challenge of deep inner-exploration.

In 2004 she received the CASE/Carnegie Foundation's U.S. Professor of the Year Award for the state of Utah. She has studied Peruvian shamanism since the 1980's and is the author of two books and dozens of academic articles. Her book, The Gift of Life: Female Spirituality and Healing in Northern Peru (University of New Mexico, 1998) was the first to address the important role of women as healers on the north coast of Peru. Currently, her work focuses on the role of shamanic healing in personal and planetary transformation, and, as an endorsed teacher of the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition (founded by don Oscar Miro-Quesada), she brings heart-centered learning to her students at Utah State University as a way to restore the true meaning and purpose of a liberal education.
