Welcome to the Hampeq teachings with Andean curandera (healer) Vilma Pinedo. These are the teachings of the southern Valley in Cusco, Peru, and they represent a direct connection to the spiritual lineage of Inka Huascar.
From an early age Vilma has learnt from her grandparents the Art and works of a hampeq, a traditional Andean healer. She has been trusted with this legacy from the hands of masters in her family such as Don Benito Qorihuaman Vargas, Melchor Deza Itto, Francisco Sánchez Vargas, Paulita Ñaupa, Eugenia Vargas, Martín Pinedo, María Vargas, and many other respected healers.
In the Hampeq program Vilma will share with us her experience and practices for us to connect with a deep sense of the andean wisdom and traditions. Through sharing stories, rituals and offerings we will walk towards an inner healing, connecting with the bearers of our gifts and talents: our own ancestors and the forces of nature that support us.
These 12 meetings are part of the first of three levels in the Hampeq teachings that will be given in the coming times.
In this first level we will:
-Learn about the origin of the Huascar Lineage and the last Inka spiritual guide.
-Work with the energy of the Paqarina, your place of birth, and also with the energy of the place you live in currently.
-Recognize the meaning and stregth of each one of the 4 directions or Suyus: chinchaysuyo, collasuyo, qontisuyo, antinsuyo.
-Work and learn from the sacred Coca leaves.
-Prepare different kinds of ceremonial offerings.
-Use the Khuyaq Rumi, healing stones, from the perspective on Vilma’s lineage.
-Work with our inner Hampeq through the use of healing plants.
-Have a deep understanding and connect with the spirit of the K’uychi, the rainbow in the andes.
-Work with the munay and the energy of the relations.
-Understand the relevance of the “Estrella”, Star, in our path and in connection to our body of light.
-And much more…

Vilma Pinedo was born surrounded by the Apus, powerful mountain spirits from Cusco, Peru. Her initiation into the path of the healer arrived before she was even born. When her mother was pregnant with her, she was struck by a lighting that almost kills them both. In the Andes this is a strong sign of being called by the spirits, that’s why from a young age the eyes of the community were set on her to learn the “curandera” way.
Vilma grew among her grandfathers and grandmothers, whom through day to day labour and sharing, taught her the traditional healing rituals. And since she was 12, she help them, reading the energy in the coca leaves, gathering the natural elements for the healings and offerings and using her intuition to advice the patients.
She comes from a lineage of renown healers in Cusco, amongst them her father Martin Pinedo, her mother María Sanchez, her grandfather Benito Qorihuaman and her great-grandfather Melchor Deza. The latter two, made known to foreigners by the masters Don Juan Nuñez del Prado and Américo Yabar, and respected by a world-wide community of practitioners of the Andean Spiritual Tradition.
By studying at the university, Vilma did something that was new to past generations, allowing her to learn different languages, accessing and understanding more of the western and modern mindset.
Currently, she dedicates her time to her family, to helping her community, and assisting people in their spiritual paths, their own relations, families and businesses. She works with different subtle natural energies, using the methods received from her ancestors, like the making of offerings, the use of healing plants and sacred Andean rituals. She always remarks that when she works with people it’s the their faith what gets the job done. And that each one of us knows what we truly need, it’s just up to us to open up, listen, talk, and walk the path.

Vilma has a special connection with the Apus, guardian spirits of her land and culture. Like the Apu pachatusan, Manuel Pinta or Wiraqochan. They guide her in her works, and this is why she is considered as channel to the elders who still inhabit the high mountains in Cusco. “Sometimes you don’t see them, but they see you for sure, and they take care of you”, she says.
She loves her family and the healing ways that bring balance to our bodies and our relationship with the living earth. She was called to accompany the Dalai Lama when he visited Cusco, and she uses her gift as a tool for health, peace and unity.

We are Karpay, an organization based in Perú and dedicated to sharing the Andean Spiritual Wisdom. Founded by Yandy Huaranga (pshychologist) and Francisco Victoria (International Relations major) who having learnt with different original masters decided to present their work and knowledge to people from all over the world in a respectful, honest and practical way.
We have organized several retreats, travels, online courses and events with renown Andean masters from Perú and Bolivia such as Américo Yábar, Juan Nuñez del Prado, Vilma Pinedo, Don Martín Quispe, Don Aurelio Ortiz among others, and masters from different traditions such as Bön Buddhist Lama Tenzin Wangyal.
We will be happy to help and guide you through this series of beautiful meetings with our dear friend and master Vilma.
What participants of online programs with Vilma had to say
“Vilma knew how to read our words, faces and personal energy bubbles through this journey of healing our energy eyes. I’m grateful for her listening carefully to what we had to say, and her deep reflecting on each of the individual processes shared online.
She knows the messages that travel in between worlds, reading the signs embedded in our dreams and the synchronicities the universe presents us with. She is a bridge between her holy land of Cusco and the holy lands of each of the participants summoned to this path. As she says: ‘Be humble, you are made of earth and stardust’.”
Francisca C. /Spain
My experience with Vilma has been a profound one. While I have been studying the Andean path for a number of years with Juan and Ivan, this experience has taken me much deeper and opened new spaces for me. A deeper embodied awareness of the Andean medicine and pachamama that will help me in my endeavors. As I am a shamanic healer and work with the Andean medicine, Vilmas perspective is very valuable because she has a direct connection to the Huascar lineage and works with these energies as a healer. I know without a doubt that she is a clear channel to this lineage and transmits a deep awareness of it.
Anthony P./ U.S.A.
“I feel so moved when I find masters this pure. The wisdom expressed shakes the heart and soul, and everything we have experienced was knowledge given generously, I’ll hold dear down my path. Thank you Vilma, Francisco and Yandy.”
Karina G. / Argentina
“Vilma brings a subtle yet intense energy into her works. You can tell she is constantly connected to the group process. Personally, this experience has helped me to find puzzle pieces of my life, to open up beatiful praying sacred spaces and to understand how the energies move through your body. I feel that what I discovered here will talk to me through time and space.”
Silvia M. / Sacred Valley in Cusco.
