This is not as solid of a book like Masters of the Living Energy: The Mystical World of the Q'ero of Peru or Andean Awakening: An Inca Guide to Mystical Peru then you will get a review but not necessarily alot of new information. At 178 pages it seems like there was another half of a book that could have been written here to help you get into the topic and ceremonies a little more. Very Good for those new to the subject. A likely borrow or pass for those who have been to Peru and/or heard of these topics before. The author is very knowledgeable on the subject, but the book was a bit short of what the world needs to hear and the writing style is rushed and incomplete.
I highly recommend Chamalú: The Shamanic Way of the Heart: Traditional Teachings from the Andes if you want to learn of the heart of the native people of the Andes direct from them. It's a monumental volume that will challenge whatever pieces of the mechanistic/reductionist/Western mindset you hold within yourself.
I have spent time with Q'ero in Peru, I work with a mesa and some of their energy practices, and I have also read other books on the Q'ero before.... This book was very refreshing, easy to understand, and fun to read. Some of the Q'ero philosophies which I had studied before made much more sense after reading this book and seeing the authors perspective. Very helpful for me.
The practices are the best kind: simple, but powerful, and they just keep bringing more blessings into your life! Some of the practices I was already familiar with, but a few were new to me, and a few that I had overlooked before finally made sense to me, and I stopped overlooking them! This book especially helped me understand better the methods of energetic exchange that is so fundamental to the Q'ero practice.
I highly recommend this book, whether readers are interested in the practices or the Q'ero philosophy, this book does a great job sharing both with the reader.
