karpay rites - welcome song to the archetypes

by carol weaver



I wrote 'karpay rites - welcome song for the archetypes' when i first journeyed through the teachings and healing of the inca medicine wheel. I was so honoured to receive the ayni karpay rites that first ceremonial night of rites of passage!

It was a way for me to learn and memorize the names/order of the seven archetypes that had been installed into my chakras during the Karpay Rites ceremony in the south direction of the wheel... They are sometimes named the Ayni Karpay Rites as well.

I also teach this song to new initiates during our sacred fire ceremonies so they too can learn them - what better way to learn than to sing them together!

As you engage within the drumming and chant along, the dear archetypes themselves will sing along with you... a beautiful way to honour, feed and bless your own spirit within........

This track was recorded live off the floor with no overdubs or retakes... i have such fond memories of co-creating this together with my ayllu sisters within the spirit of ayni-joy, love and laughter - and the treasured drum-time moment magic i won't ever forget!... with gratitude to all!

Many bright blessings and i hope you enjoy...
hi-yi-yaaah! ...in munay... in ayni, weaver x (((o)))
