THE NINE RITES OF THE MUNAY-KI
Instructor: Sally Stanton, PhD
The Munay-Ki are the nine great rites of initiation of the Incan medicine way. The word
munay (moo-nye) means “I love you as you are” in the ancient Quechua language, still
spoken by native peoples of the Andes. The Munay-Ki rites are the nine gates that heal us
and transform us by planting seeds in our energy bodies that we can actively nurture and
grow. We are born with these aspects, but the momentum of our culture weakens and
distorts them. The Munay-Ki Rites reawaken and strengthen these abilities, connecting us
with an ancient lineage of healers and luminous beings, and healing past wounds so that
we can more effectively dream our new world into being and live our daily lives in the ways
that we truly wish to. The shamans of Peru have gifted these rites to the world after centuries
of silence because we are finally ready to receive them and the world desperately needs the
transformation they bring.
As you receive the Munay-Ki, your chakras will become clear and you’ll acquire a “rainbow”
body. This is when your chakras glow with their original radiance. Remember that each of
the chakras has a color, and when they’re shining with their original light, they emit the
colors of the rainbow. When they’re dulled by trauma from this and from previous lifetimes,
our energy field becomes a grayish hue and our chakras become pools of psychic sludge.
Once we acquire a rainbow body, the luminous beings that the shamans call Earthkeepers
can reach out to us because they recognize that we share a common vision and calling.
In this four-class series presented on two weekends one month apart, you will learn about
the Rites, receive each Rite, and practice gifting the Rite to others. You will also learn how
to nurture the energetic seeds planted when receiving the Rites and receive instructional
handouts to guide you. At the final class, you will receive a Pi Stone, to be used in gifting
the Rites to others. The Rites themselves are to be given freely at no charge; this series is
fee-based because you are also taught how to gift the Rites and mentored through the
Email and phone support will be available during February and March 2016 from the
instructor to students registered for the series. Students may experience profound dreams,
visions, and other spiritual or psychic phenomena after receiving each Rite, as your
energetic and physical bodies are cleared of stagnant or toxic energies and your
vibrational level is increased.
The four classes must be completed in order. Even if you have received one or two of the
Rites previously, it is recommended you sign up for the full series and receive them again
(you can receive the Rites as many times as you like and/or is necessary for you to gain their
Detailed class descriptions:
Class One – Introduction to the Rites and the Healer’s Rite.
Students will receive a brief overview of shamanic beliefs and practices among the
descendants of the Incas who still live high in the peaks of the Andes in Peru, and will
learn about the Nine Rites of the Munay-Ki and why they are so important. Each student
will learn about and receive the first rite, the Healer’s Rite, which awakens the healing
abilities in the recipient’s hands, so that everything and everyone they touch is blessed.
Each will then be taught how to transmit the Rite, and have one or more opportunities to
practice gifting the Rite to others in the class.
Class Two – The Seer’s Rite and the Bands of Power Rite
Each student will experience the Seer’s Rite, which installs filaments of light extending
from your visual cortex in the back of your head to your third eye and heart chakras. This
Rite awakens and enhances your ability to perceive the invisible world of energy and spirit.
Then each student will receive the Bands of Power, which consist of five energetic bands
representing earth, air, fire, water, and pure light installed in their energy field. These
bands act as filters, breaking down any negative energy that come your way into one of
the five elements so that these energies can feed you instead of making you toxic or ill.
Class Three – The Harmony Rites, the Daykeepers’ Rite, and the Wisdomkeepers’ Rite
• The Harmony Rites: Students will receive seven archetypes into their chakras as
seeds that must be germinated with fire.
• The Daykeepers’ Rite: Energetic transmission that connects you to a lineage of
shamanic healers from the past, begins the process of healing your inner feminine,
and helps you to step beyond fear, and practice peace.
• The Wisdomkeepers’ Rite: Wisdomkeepers are medicine men and women from the
past who defeated death and stepped outside of time. The job of the Wisdomkeeper
is to protect the medicine teachings and share them with others when appropriate.
This rite helps you to step outside of time and taste infinity.
Class Four – Earthkeeper, Starkeeper, and Creator Rites
• The Earthkeeper Rite: This rite connects you to a lineage of archangels reputed to have
human form and be as tall as trees. As an Earthkeeper, you become a steward of all life
on the Earth, and come under the direct protection of these archangels. You can summon
their power when needed to bring healing and balance to any situation. This rite helps
you learn the ways of the seer, dreaming the world into being.
• The Starkeeper Rite: When you receive this rite, your physical body begins to evolve.
The aging process is slowed down, and you become more resistant to diseases. You
begin to live and process the events of your life at the level of Spirit. You acquire
stewardship of the time to come and all future generations.
• The Creator Rite: This Rite awakens the God-light within you and you acquire steward-
ship for all of creation, from the smallest grain of sand to the largest cluster of galaxies
in the universe. It helps to awaken your Christ or Buddha consciousness. Before 2006, this
Rite was only transmitted directly from Spirit to those who had attained this level of
initiation. Now it can be transmitted from person-to-person, as the shamans of the Andes
have seen how much it is needed on this planet and asked their guides to allow this.
Each student will be taught how to transmit these Rites, and have one or more opportunities
to practice gifting them to others in the class.
After the final Rites are given, the class will then learn how to perform a simple candle fire
ceremony to be used regularly to nurture and grow the gifts of the Rites. Students will also
receive a Pi Stone of their own to be used in gifting the rites to others. The fire ceremony
will close the series.
