"Known as the keepers of the ancient knowledge, the Q'ero Indians of Peru are the most respected mystics of the south-central Andes. The Q'ero are known for having preserved the Inca spiritual tradition more purely than any other indigenous population in the Andes.
The Andean form of a spiritual medicine bundle is a mesa, and its use is as a conduit for the healing energies of nature. The mesa is called the "heart's fire" because it represents the finest energy-the energy of compassion-that a paqo cultivates while walking the sacred path.
