Default Q'ero Mesa Altar - Crystals and Rocks

For a long time I worked with crystals and rocks in different ways, but I really deepened my work with them when I started studying with the Q'ero tribe.

The Q'ero are a tribe in Peru that stayed hidden when the Spanish arrived so they were able to keep their culture and spiritual practices in-tact. They were part of the Inka empire and one focus of their medicine was the use of a special altar which is called a mesa these days.

The altar has different parts, but the bulk of the altar is a number of crystals and rocks which represent different wisdoms and medicines that the healer can use in ceremony.

I hope you enjoy this article about how to build and work with your own mesa altar:
