"Return to the Garden"
“When the Colonists arrived in the New World and first shared their faith with the indigenous inhabitants. The new world peoples identified with the stories of the garden of Eden Exclaiming this is us! This is the garden!”
These places hold the collective memory of the past, through ceremony we awaken them, weaving together an energy grid that serves as a launch pad to catapult us into our future destiny.

Zane Curfman known as "don Zane" to his students and godchildren, is The author of Inka Mountain Magic and has been serving his community as a healer and spiritual leader for over 20 years.
Zane started apprenticing with the Q’ero Paqo Kuna tradition (nature mystic/shamanism) in his early 20’s. He fell in love with the culture and the spiritual traditions of the region, studying with many of the indigenous spiritual masters of the Peruvian and Bolivian Andes
Zane serves as a Chaka Runa a bridge for the spirits. He was tasked by his indigenous masters to adapt these teachings for the western mind while preserving their cultural roots. To this end He created the Katari Tradition of Cross-cultural Shamanism, the Wild Hearts Medicine Society and the Art of Spiritual Healing Shaman Apprenticeship Program.
Zane believes these traditions of eco-spirituality hold essential keys for unlocking the spiritual potential of the individual and the preservation of our environment.
