The Nusta Karpay Rites are seven initiations that comes from the shamans who live in the holy mountains of the Andes in Peru. In 2009 some of the Q’ero shamans decided to share these ancient rites with the people in the West. Through various meetings they saw the need of strengthening the contact with our inner feminine power and with Mother Earth that is an important part of being able to walk in beauty with love, balance an joy through life. Nusta Karpay is pronounced as 'New-stay Car-pei'.

These Rites are seven steps to meet the feminine force from the Andes.

The Awakening of the Divine Feminine

These rites are open to both men and women who wish to receive them. They are also suitable for newcomers and those who have trained in traditional healing ways. These transmissions offer each participant a profound connection with to the Nustas – known as the feminine energies in the Andes.

The Nustas are the princesses and goddesses of the mountains (apus) and waters along the highlands of Peru and Bolivia. The Nusta Karpay is the initiation of the Seven Andean Goddesses from the Incan shamanic tradition.

Now is the time for the great transformation and balance of humans to bring healing to Mother Earth (Pachamama). The Nustas help immensely with this balance. The intent of the Nusta Karpay is to soften the heart of both men and women and to help empower women. The seven initiations are seeds of light or energetic points of transmission to balance the feminine and masculine energies within you. As you heal and balance the Divine Feminine within yourself, you also help to heal Pachamama.

Who may receive the Nusta Karpay?

The Nusta Karpay Rites are open to both men and women, and are available to everyone regardless of their spiritual orientation. The Nusta Karpay are not only for those who have apprenticed in the Andean or other ancient spiritual traditions. They are for those who wish to heal the Divine Feminine within themselves, and carry that healing into the world, and for those who wish to bring greater peace and unity to our planet.

What are the Nusta Karpay?

In the Andean spiritual tradition, the Nustas are the Goddesses and Sacred Archetypal Feminine energies of Nature. They are the original princesses of the Andean cosmology, and are sourced from the great mountains and sacred lakes in Peru. They are also connected to other waters and mountains on our planet. In the Quechua language of the Andes, the word “Karpay” means a rite or ceremony of initiation.

The Nusta Karpay were gifted to us from the Andean Q’ero medicine women and men of Peru, via Don Mariano Quispe in 2010. They recognised and responded to the cry of the Great Mother, Pachamama, to heal her wounds and imbalances. These wounds and imbalances of the Mother are reflected in our wounds and disharmony, and in the wounds and imbalances of humanity. The Q’ero medicine men and women understood that the surest way to bring harmony and balance back to our Mother Earth, Pachamama, and to bring ourselves into right relationship with the Pachamama and the sacred feminine was by gifting these ancient rites to re-introduce and elevate the Divine Feminine to her rightful place.

What can I expect to experience from receiving these rites?

The Nusta rites are given as energetic seeds of the Feminine Goddess Archetypes, and transmitted into your seven chakras and luminous energy field. The chakras are like the organs of our luminous energy field, and hold all our histories, as well as, our light and our shadow pieces. As you receive and integrate the initiation of the Nusta rites, you begin to stir the contents of your energy centres, bringing to the surface any parts of yourself that as of yet have not been healed or honoured. You will feel the impact of the Nusta, and as with the cycles of the moon and the cycles in nature, the alchemy works in cycles through you too. The Nustas have a gentle yet powerful energy; to heal deeply and restore the balance of feminine within us.

Through our connection to the Nustas, you begin to awaken a deep connection with the divine feminine, not only within yourself, but with the feminine in all of creation. You also begin to heal your true relationship and connection to Mother Earth and all living beings. Through the powerful initiations of the rites you will experience more depth in your spiritual growth and personal healing.

The healing energy of the Nusta will help you strengthen your connection with all the feminine aspects within you and around you, on earth and the cosmos, through many layers. They help you find a new balance with yourself, connected with the healing of Mother Earth.


First, we have to heal our old wounds, moving through the layers, gaining insights and growing our consciousness. Then, the flow of love will come as a constant companion in our life! The Nusta Karpay will allow men to soften inside, while developing more empathy and getting more in tune again with their feelings and intuitions. These initiations will bring women into their own Goddess energy and the original deep femininity.
