March 4, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- The University of Kentucky's Martin Luther King Jr. Cultural Center and the Temple of the Mystic Light will present a shamanic healing ceremony with Jorge Luis Delgado, Peruvian mystic and shaman, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, in the cultural center, 124 UK Student Center. A free slide show and lecture will preview the event at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, in 230 Student Center.

Delgado has trained for many years with the Kallahuayas shamen of the northeast Lake Titicaca region, the lineage of the Amautas of the islands of the Andes, as well as the Q'ero Elders of the Cusco region, believed to be the last remaining descendants of the Incas.

He is among the shamen, priests, healers and teachers who share ancient and hidden knowledge to awaken the latent healing abilities in all who are ready. Their work is based on an ancient Andean prophecy that is part of the Inca legend of the Pachacuti - a time when the world is turned upside down and a new consciousness emerges.

"When the Eagle once again flies with the Condor, a lasting peace will rein in the Americas and will spread throughout the world to unite humanity." These words are from Andean shamen who believe we are living in the Pachacuti - a time when we must go within and know ourselves more deeply, heal our emotional wounds of the past, and use the power of this healing to assist others in their healing.

Delgado also will be available for individual shamanic healing sessions on Monday, March 4, and Wednesday, March 5, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Appointments are limited. For more information, call (859) 225-7769. The cost to attend the Wednesday shamanic healing ceremony is $30.
