Chunpi Paqo


Khuya means sacred object in Quechua, the language of the Q’ero, descendants of the Inca. The Khuya Ceremony, also known as the Ceremony of the Black Pant, is part of their heritage. Very few Q’ero elders know about or perform this ancient, ceremonial tradition. It has been kept alive by Juan Nunez del Prado, Andean priest and mystic..

The Khuya Ceremony takes place within the soul, the field of living energy surrounding our physical bodies that expands, contracts, and  defines our personal space (or lack of.) Its purpose is to open, cleanse, and connect the energy centers, as well as empower, clear, and harmonize the energy bubble.

Our centers are connected via a series of chunpis – belts of energy and power. This interactive ceremony clears attachments, projections, and heavy energy from the soul. It leaves a person refreshed, with heightened spiritual perception. In their own energy, sometimes for the first time in their lives.

Each time we preform the Khuya Ceremony, our relationship with our stones deepens, and the more we use them, the more powerful they become..

A Chunpi Paqo is one who is initiated to perform this ceremony.

I was initiated by Juan in 1997.  Over the years I’ve been performing this ceremony, I’ve found it beneficial and powerful for every recipient, including myself. I’ve also witnessed many healings. It can even be used as a means to free a person from a dysfunctional past lodged within their soul. It allows Shamanic Rebirth to occur.

I deeply honor and respect this traditional ceremony and teach it the way Juan taught me.

If you work with energy, consider becoming a Chunpi Paqo.
