From her book, “Journey to Q’eros: Golden Cradle of the Inka." Elizabeth Jenkins describes the Hatun Karpay, the Great Initiation ritual of the Inkas:
“This ancient ritual was designed to bring the
individual into direct, intimate and mystical
relationship to the Divine through Great Nature
herself. This encounter triggers a kind melt-down of the “personality” into it’s primordial origins, and if all goes well, a recovery of one’s “original self” and knowledge of one’s role as a player in the great creation. After this disintegration and (hopeful) reconsitution of the personality, it is up to the initiate to make their way back into society and forge a position of spiritual authority in their local community.”
