Warmi Qhari

Dear sisters, gentle brothers,

We bring you with Warmi (women) Qhari (man), a full-day program, where we first work with separate groups and then come together in a deeply binding cocoa ceremony.

At the beginning of the workshop we come together to share briefly. Then we separate the group and the men go with Marijn and the women with Juanita. What follows is an in-depth session within your sacred femininity and masculinity. We work with the spirits of the Andes as our guide.

After these in-depth sessions with our respective brothers and sisters, our groups are again melting together for a healing and connecting cocoa ceremony as a reward for our personal work: the unification between the feminine and the masculine.

The Andean Cosmovision

The two complementary opposites of female and male are clearly defined in the Andes. As the masculine and feminine dance together through time something emerges that is greater than the sum of the two parts. A marriage in the Andes is known as a warmi-qhari which is literally translated as woman-man. It is a fusion of two complementary ways of being that creates a higher order of being. This does not mean that the complementary nature of the two disappears.
