Types of Workshops Offered 

Would you like to Sponsor an Event 
with Mark Amaru Pinkham ?

Below are a sample of the workshops and presentations offered by Mark Amaru, both nationally and internationally. 

Everyone is welcome !!

# 1 - Slide Presentation of the 
Temples of the Great White Brotherhood


During this two-three hour presentation Mark Amaru will present slides of temples and sacred sites around the globe associated with the Serpents of Wisdom or Great White Brotherhood. These slides were taken by Mark during his travels to Peru, Egypt, Tibet/Nepal and India, and their presentation includes detailed descriptions of the purpose of each temple or pyramid, as well as when it was built and by whom. Before and during the presentation Mark will give a thorough overview of the workings of the Great White Brotherhood.


# 2 - Overview and Initiation
 into the Serpents of Wisdom

During this one-day workshop Mark Amaru will cover the esoteric history and teachings of the Serpents of Wisdom or Great White Brotherhood as contained within his book The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom. All the ancient records, as well as the latest discoveries regarding the GWB, will be discussed in detail, including Mark’s ongoing search for a secret monastery in Peru and the lost world of Shamballa in Asia. The workshop will culminate with special instruction on the alchemical practices of the Serpents of Wisdom, and will end with an initiation into this ancient order.


# 3 - The Esoteric History of the Goddess Tradition

During this one-day workshop Mark Amaru will reveal the true history of the Goddess spiritual tradition from its inception on Lemuria via missionaries from other planets, to its perennial battle with the Patriarchy and the ensuing Armageddon, and then end with its current revival. Mark will cover in detail the evolution of the Goddess Tradition from ancient times, including its early manifestations as Hindu Tantra, Magic and Witchcraft, and its later evolution as the Secret Societies of Europe. Much of the wisdom Mark will share was given directly to him by the Goddess in his book Conversations with the Goddess. The workshop will also cover certain alchemical practices passed down through the branches of the Matriarchy, and will close with a special initiation into the mysteries of the Goddess.

# 4 - The Esoteric History and Teachings of Jesus Christ

The wisdom shared during this one-day workshop is taken from Mark’s third book, The Truth Behind the Christ Myth (publication date: late January 2002). It reveals the true esoteric history of Jesus, including his travels across Asia and who he really was - an incarnation of Melchizedek. Much of what is known of Jesus’ life and mission was fabricated by Saint Paul, a devotee of the Persian Mithras, who believed that Jesus was a manifestation of the Persian Son of God. But the truth of Jesus’ incarnation was taken to Syria and preserved within “Aramaic” or Nestorian Christianity. The workshop will culminate in the alchemical teachings and practices of the Zedeks, the followers of Melchizedek, and end with a subtle transmission of energy directly from Melchizeldek.



# 5 - Alchemy Workshop

During this one-day workshop Mark Amaru will share the secrets of catalyzing alchemical processes within the human body that he has learned in India, Peru, Egypt and Tibet. Both alchemical theory and practice will be covered, as well as the cosmic origins of these practices. The alchemical practices taught in this workshop, which include yoga asanas, meditation, and mantra repetition, catalyze Kundalini awakening and increase longevity. They are primarily designed for those seeking rapid spiritual development. Mark will also cover the appropriate lifestyle, diet and herbs which support the process of inner alchemy.

# 6 - The Serpents of Wisdom Initiation and Alchemy Workshop

During this two-day workshop Mark will cover the complete history and teachings of the Serpents of Wisdom or Great White Brotherhood, and include a slide presentation of their temples around the world. The second day of the workshop will be devoted to learning the alchemy and yoga taught by the Masters of the Great White Brotherhood, and end with an initiation into their eternal order.

INDIA: Himalayan Pilgrimage 
May 17- 31, 2002 

Perhaps more than any other sacred journey Mark Amaru has offered in the past to India, our Himalayan Pilgrimage promises to be an authentic spiritual pilgrimage. We will join thousands of yogis, ascetics, and devoted Hindus who, at least once in their lives, visit the headwaters of the Ganges, the most sacred river in India. We will see and meet many of these colorful pilgrims as our bus climbs through the majestic Himalayas. We will also have an opportunity to observe those hearty yogis who live within the caves and ashrams of the high mountains all year round.

The world, according to the Hindu scriptures, is a vast ocean and a Yatra, a pilgrimage to a holy place is the only way to ferry across it.  Our Yatra to these holy places will reward you, both visually and spiritually. We will visit Gangotri, the beginning of the Ganges, & Badrinath and Kedarnath, two of the most holy temple cities in all of India. Kedarnath is the seat of a Jyoti Lingum, an image of Lord Shiva which is fully imbued with his spiritual power. Pilgrims come here to see and feel this amazing image, and also for healing and the blessings of Shiva. Badrinath is another important shrine to Lord Shiva and has been a destination of pilgrims for thousands of years. The mountains surrounding Badrinath are highly charged, thus making it one of the best Himalayan spots for meditation. Many important yogis live in the area of Badrinath, including the reportedly 2000 year old saint, Babaji

During this spiritual pilgrimage, Mark will share the esoteric teachings from his books, The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom and Conversations with the Goddess. These include a presentation of the history, practices, and teachings of the members of the Great White Brotherhood, or "Serpents of Wisdom," as well as the teachings of the Goddess culture. Additionally, he will be offering daily Hatha Yoga and meditation sessions, as well as chanting of bhajans, Sanskrit hymns to God/Goddess.

At Badrinath, Mark Amaru will offer you the opportunity to receive initiation into The Kumara School of Wisdom.  
(For more details about this opportunity to become a part of the School, and/or about this Sacred Journey, email Mark at tours@SerpentsOfWisdom.com or call 800 231-9811 or 928 779-7060.)

PERU: Incan Shamanic Studies and The Seven Rays of Healing (Including a  Special Solstice Ceremony during a Private Night Entrance into Machu Picchu)
June 15 - 25, 2002 (with Optional Excursion for Rest, Relaxation and Integration at Lake Titicaca, June 24 - 28)
According to the Inca legend of the Pachacuti, we are living in a time when the world is turned upside down and a new consciousness emerges. Andean shamen believe we are living in this time...a time when we must heal ourselves and help others to heal. Mark Amaru and Andean shamen, or ritual specialists (pampa misayoq and alto misayoq) will assist you to connect with the sacred energies of the temples at ancient sites such as Machu Picchu, where you will have the opportunity to participate in traditional Incan healing rituals using the herbal mixture of San Pedro. This extraordinary plant medicine has been used for centuries in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes to access the energies of the seven rays of healing.

Join Mark Amaru Pinkham, noted author, metaphysical teacher, and Spiritual Director of The Kumara School of Wisdom (Sedona, AZ) on this unique sacred healing journey! He has been traveling and leading tours to Peru since 1993 and has been studying San Pedro Shamanism since 1999, having been apprenticed to a shamanic teacher. During this sacred journey he will introduce you to ritual specialists who are experts in this traditional Incan sacred healing art. 

Mark is the author of The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom and Conversations with the Goddess. During the tour he will be sharing information from his books, as well as from his current on-going research.

He is a founding member of The Brotherhood of the Solar Disc,  an Andean esoteric society connected with The Great White Brotherhood. The goal of the organization is to re-align with the energies of Unconditional Love that the Disc, an ancient Inca power tool, represents and to spread that energy throughout our planet, creating a world-wide healing community.  At Lake Titicaca Mark Amaru will invite you to receive initiation into this growing metaphysical organization and commit to do your part to bring more peace and love to our world.  

At Ollantaytambo, the Sanctuary of the Wind, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Mark Amaru will offer you the opportunity to receive initiation into The Kumara School of Wisdom.
