with Sharron Rose from
of the QêERO
An Interview with
By Randy Peyser
Sharron Rose MA.Ed is the writer/director
of Timewave 2013: The Future is Now, a film that
explores the end date of the Mayan Calendar and the
prophecies and mystic teachings related to the year
A Fulbright Senior Research
Scholar in World Mythology, Religion and the Sacred
Arts of Dance, Music and Theatre, Sharron was the
first American disciple to study under Sitara Devi,
Indiaês legendary Kathak dancer and tantric adept,
where she was initiated into a sacred tradition of
the ancient feminine Yogic Arts.
She is the author of the award
winning book, The Path of the Priestess; A Guidebook
for Awakening the Divine Feminine (Inner Traditions),
and the producer of the Sacred Mysteries DVD Collection. www.SacredMysteries.com.
In Timewave 2013, which follows
her film, 2012 The Odyssey, Sharron introduces viewers
to the ceremonies and prophecies of the Qêero, descendants
of the Ancient Incas, who live in the high peaks
of Peru. Without cars, blaring televisions, technology,
or any modern conveniences, the Qêero experience
a rare clarity of perception that allows them to
travel in time to see into the past or the future.
In Timewave 2013, the Qêero
share the Prophecy of Pachacuti (their ancient Incan
prophet) as well as the Legend of the Four Holy Shamans,
who they believe will come in 2012 to lead us into
the next Age. The film also features brilliant commentary
from such inspiring luminaries as Jose Arguelles,
Jean Houston, Dr. Albert Villoldo, Gregg Braden,
Riane Eisler, Jay Weidner, and others.
Randy Peyser: Tell us about the Qêero and the prophecies that are
revealed in Timewave 2013.
Sharron Rose: The
Qêero are descendents of the ancient Incans, who
left at the time of the Spanish Conquest and have
survived for generations in the high mountains of
Peru. Their work is documented by Dr. Alberto Villoldo,
who has translated their ancient healing modalities
to make them practical, scientific and contemporary
for the western world. The Qêero are profound shamans
and healers who have the capacity to see beyond normal
reality; they can see through time.
Randy: I loved Alberto
Villoldoês insight about how the Qêero access time.
He stated: –Our mythology says, •We own space.
We can travel to any country. This is a foreign
concept to the Qêero. But it isthe indigenous people
who can travel across time, which is foreign to
Qêero shamans talk about the Prophecy of the Pachacuti,
which they say will happen in 2012. Their belief
is that at this time, the world, which has gone into
chaos, will be turned right side up again, and a
new human will be born. They call this new human... –homo-luminous.”
The Qêero hold the teachings
about the luminous body. The essence of their teachings
has to do with understanding and healing the luminous
body. The luminous body surrounds and informs the
physical body, like a great matrix of light.
They say within the luminous
body, everything is encoded ã your past, your future,
all your genetics and your karma. They have techniques
by which one can learn to perceive everything that
is encoded to heal oneself, bring the whole being
into balance, and even become homo-luminous.
I am trained in the Tibetan
Dzogchen and Tantric traditions, and the Masters
in my teacher, Namkhai Norbuês lineage, accomplished
this transmutation. Some of my teacherês relatives
became what they call –rainbow bodies,” where at
death, their bodies dissolved into light and rainbows
appeared in the sky. All that remains were their
hair and fingernails.
This transmutation of the human
body into light as the ultimate goal of the human
endeavor is documented in alchemical teachings, the
Kabbalah and in many traditions. I wrote about this
in The Path of the Priestess. An Indian princess
named Mandarava was a consort of Padmasambhava, the
great spiritual leader who brought tantric teachings
to Tibet. They lived in caves and realized these
teachings on immortality together. At the time of
her –death” Mandarava gave her final teaching to
her disciples and dissolved into light. Amazingly,
her students turned into light, too.
Once one turns into light, as
the teachings say, he or she can remain in the luminous
realms and work from those realms, or be born on
other world systems besides our own, or come back
here and continue to work in whatever form one chooses.
Randy: How do you think this transmutation occurs?
the body is made up of elements and the elements
are essentially light, what happens is that the elements
reverse back into their true nature. This is the
essence of the Tantric teachings, the alchemical
teachings and the Tibetan teachings. It was extraordinary
to find the same teachings in Peru with the Qêero.
Alberto would tell you there is a connection between
the Qêero and the Tibetans. He says they came across
the land bridge from the Himalayas.
Randy: What kind of
experiences did you have with the Qêero?
first time I met Dona Bernandina, a Qêero shaman,
she gave me a blessing forehead to forehead. In the
East, you would call it •shaktipat,ê a leap of knowledge,
of light from the teacher to the student, of the
Buddha to the disciple. When I had this experience
this energy leapt from her head into mine. I felt
this great opening in my visual capacity. When I
would go into meditation, I would become a great
eagle and fly over different landscapes, while perceiving
from an eagle-eye perspective. I had never experienced
that kind of shamanic, Earth Keeper kind of transmission
The Qêero are completely connected
to the natural world, to the plants and the animals.
They are the Earth Keepers. During the interview
for Timewave 2013, the Qêero performed a Despacho
ceremony to help release negativity. The construction
of a Despacho is similar to that of a Tibetan Sand
mandala. It is formed with symbolic objects of beauty,
endearment and humor to the Qêero.
During the ceremony all of our
negative thoughts, feelings and emotions were placed
inside the objects of the mandala. We also blew our
prayers into coca leaves to send them out into the
world. Coca leaves are a very mild stimulant. In
addition to helping with altitude sickness, the coca
leaf itself contains that energy of clarity. When
you blow your prayers into the coca leaf, the essential
energy of the coca leaf itself is blended with your
own energy and sent out into the world.
Sitting with the Qêero in ceremony
was extremely powerful. They have a strong sense
of presence and an ability to be totally focused
in the present moment. Their intention during the
Despacho ceremony reminded me of what it was like
to sit with the Tibetan masters, the Rinpoches. It
was an experience where I felt completely connected
to all. I went into a state of complete bliss. Even
though the ceremony was about bringing up and releasing
all of oneês negativity, it was performed from such
a place of grace and openness that I could not help
but be at peace.
Randy: When the Qêero
talk about awakening the luminous body, does that
mean we are all going to die?
It really depends on us. We are at this crucial moment
where we have a choice. As we have placed our focus
on materialism we have lost the capacities we have
always had and that are natural to us. In Tibet,
for example, they still have practices where they
go outdoors, sit in the snow and use their inner
heat to melt the snow.
Legends tell us that human beings
once had the ability to use sound to affect matter.
Some say the pyramids were built in this way. We
lived on light. Even today there are practices taught
for maintaining optimal health by ingesting light.
These ancient secrets have been kept by the Earth
Keepers. That is their role, to hold and transmit
these very precious teachings.
Today, all the lies and darkness,
and the pain and suffering in Western civilization
is coming up to be distilled so we can now purify
and come into a new Golden Age of Light and recover
our lost capacities. In every moment we have a choice
to live in fear or in right action. The human race
has to choose right now. From one perspective, it
looks as though the human race is trying to commit
suicide. We are engaging is war, polluting the planet,
drugging ourselves, etc. In this greediness, in this
desire to dominate, we have lost our hearts.
In your film, Jean Houston states: –We have lost
the hearth where we sat with our grandparents who
told the stories. We have replaced the hearth with
the television set. No hearth, no heart. No sense
of continuity. No sense of the great connectivity.
No sense of the great chain of being between generations
without which civilization perishes.”
impacted me with her eloquence, and her search and
openness to look at so many cultures throughout the
world and find their commonalities. This is also
my work ã finding ways of bringing people together
in peace and harmony.
Randy: Help us to understand
more about the transmutation of human beings into
the luminous light body. Is this what is referred
to as ascension? Do we come and go out of physical
transmutation into a luminous light body is a purification
or distillation process in which we rid ourselves
of darkness. On a psychological level, our emotions ã such
as anger, lust, jealousy, ignorance and pride ã are
transmuted through meditation and through working
on ourselves. The work begins on the inner levels.
The whole change of the world has to start with you,
so if you want a world of beauty and connectivity,
you have to start with yourself.
This is a process of going in,
bringing up all of the darkness and freeing it. It
is all energy. When anger is transmuted, it becomes
clarity. When jealousy is transmuted, it becomes
all-accomplishing wisdom. When pride is transmuted,
it becomes equanimity. When ignorance or lethargy
is transmuted, it becomes a sense of spaciousness.
When lust is transmuted, it becomes discernment.
The transmutation process frees
people from their cravings. It is a path of freedom.
As you release darkness you will feel lighter and
become clearer. You will begin to have the capacity
to interact with lighter levels of reality, the luminous
levels. It is not like you will fly off to some other
You will be firmly grounded
in the material world, and from this place, bring
your expanded knowledge and perception into your
every action in this world. As you bring this expanded
energy into your physical body, your whole body will
begin to become lighter. You will heal. This is what
they mean by enlightenment.
In the Tibetan teachings to
which I am connected, all of the luminous beings
are still around. There is a Bodhisattva vow of compassion
that says when you achieve enlightenment you stay
around to assist all others. They hang out. Some
come back. That is why they have the whole reincarnation
system in terms of the Lamas, like the Dalai Lama.
They are waiting for us to call
upon them; when you become a student of these traditions,
you receive what is called a transmission or an initiation
that opens the doorway to perceive these beings or
these realms. Then you can connect with them and
move into the next phase.
As you go through this process
toward enlightenment, your latent capacities, which
are not being addressed in the material world right
now, will increase. As an example, every woman has
the capacity that we call womanês intuition, but
we are taught to not trust it. Everybody has the
capacity to travel in their dreams and have visions,
but all of that has been suppressed. It is coming
back now, but in the general world it is not what
people are focused upon.
As you clear the darkness, you
free yourself from what Alberto calls the –Cultural
Trance.” Jose Arguelles calls it the –Dream Spell.” Riane
Eisler calls it the –Dominator Trance.” As you free
yourself from this mindset, which is the signature
of the modern world, then these capacities start
to come back to you.
Randy: You say, –The
ancients say the body of light can only be achieved
through love. Compassion and forgiveness are the
path toward true liberation.” To me, these qualities
represent the Divine Feminine.
have to return to the ways of the feminine. In ancient
times, women were the healers, the spiritual leaders,
the caretakers, the initiators of mysteries concerning
life, death and sexuality. In patriarchal times,
these roles were squashed. With feminism we came
into the marketplace to work alongside men. But we
were taught to emulate men and not recover our true
Part of my work is to assist
women in understanding they have this feminine power
and that they do not have to emulate men. The feminine
power, in its true nature, is very inclusive; it
is warm, motherly, compassionate and incisive. However,
since we were taught to deny our true nature and
to emulate men, we think that in order to compete
in the marketplace we need to be even tougher than
men. This is a generalization but it often happens
when women become leaders of corporations.
In our domination of the world,
our materialism and the patriarchal process, we have
lost the heart. In Timewave 2013, when Don Umberto
talks about America, he says, –America has great
brilliance and a great mind, but now that brilliance
must be brought down to the heart. Without the gifts
of the heart we will not be able to think our way
out of the problem.”
Our survival is at stake, and
to survive, we must come back to the ways of the
heart. The path of the heart is the path of the Earth
Keepers, of the indigenous people, the path of healing.
Now it is time for us, the Baby-Boomer generation,
to stand up and align ourselves with our highest
goals. Now we are the elders. We can reshape the
world into one that our children and grandchildren
will be able to live in and survive and thrive.
The Qêero say, –We must come
back to the ways of the earth, to the ways of the
feminine. We must come back to the Mother.”
