The Sacred Spiral

Shamanic Apprenticeship Certification



A Two-Year Program  Guided By:  Pierre Garreaud & Janice Johnson

Ascending the Sacred Spiral (ATSS) Apprenticeship program is designed for individuals who take their spiritual development seriously and are willing to commit time and effort to Self Spiritual Expansion. The program is crafted to create deep transformation by engaging the alchemical energies of Kundalini through unwinding the Sacred Spiral. The ATSS teachings are a selected blend of Peruvian Shamanism that includes the Andean Cosmology of the Q'ero, The Mesa Norteña teachings of the Twin Shamans, the Rainforest Medicine, and nevertheless,  the everlasting teachings of Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, and Paramahansa Yogananda. This selected combination of spiritual healing teachings has been organized in such a way that guarantees Self-Development and mastery of many healing tools and modalities.

We are committed to Excellence

Students are supported in every way possible during the workshops and after that, with private sessions, if needed. We take our work very seriously and are committed to helping individuals reach their higher potential as they remember their purpose in Life, and Who they really are.

Become Empowered

Deep transformation happens as the shadow self is brought into the Light and fully embraced in the Kundalini Fires.  Mastery as a Healer happens as the student commits to learning and practicing all these amazing tools given to us by our teachers in Spirit, our Mentors, and our Shamans over a period of 30 years.

Heal yourself to Heal Others

As a Student embarks on learning the tools of Ascending the Sacred Spiral not only do they discover their spiritual gifts and talents, but they finally find purpose, drive, and empowerment because they have healed at all levels and their "Radiance" is just a dynamo for an Exceptional Life.

Walk like a Master

It is important "To be in the world, but not of the world" as Jesus said. Only the ones who are awakened by the sacred fire of the Holy Spirit finally achieve FREEDOM. Once you are no more stocked by your shadow self you are on your way to follow the road to Enlightenment.

About Pierre Garreaud

Peruvian Sound Healer and Shaman

As a result of over 25 years of experience in the arts of spiritual development, Pierre Garreaud is offering new programs for the advanced seeker. His spiritual adventures include many years of working with renowned and respected shamans in all native spiritual traditions available in Perú. Pierre started his shamanic explorations in the '90s with Maestro Don Agustin Rivas, followed by the Rain Forest Medicine of the Ashanica tradition with Maestro Juan Flores. Later on, he continued learning the Q'ero medicine of the Inca Priests with Don Francisco Chura, Doña Julia Flores Farfán, and Don Martin Pinedo el Condor of Huasao.


Since 2011 he teamed up with the Twin Shamans, Doña Ysabel, and Doña Olinda to learn from them the Mesa Norteña. Pierre follows the teachings of Jesus Christ as he was born in the Catholic Faith, but it is through Self-Realized Master Paramahansa Yogananda that he really understood the Mystical and Esoteric side of the Beloved Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Pierre received from the disciples of Yogananda the powerful initiation and technique of Kriya Yoga.  

His extended Spiritual and Shamanic training, as well as his personal experiences combined with his unique musical talents, have allowed Pierre to integrate these teachings into a body of work he called Ascending the Sacred Spiral. Pierre had his spiritual awakening in 2003 where the Kundalini energies rosed and combusted much of his present life and past life's karma. His awakening was so strong and transformational that naturally, he let go of his old life to become a healer and shaman. Spirit guided him with many healing talents, bestowing on him an array of teachings that became the foundation for the many workshops he now offers.

About Janice Johnson

Master Healer & Teacher

At that young age, Janice had the talent for feeling the people's energy who could not express their needs. She continued to develop that gift to the point where today she intuitively knows how to help her clients.

Over the years, Janice took many workshops and training in the field of Body, Mind, and Soul, which allowed her to assemble a very unique healing toolbox. She is mostly guided by her intuition as she reads the client’s energy field and then she follows by using the healing modality that is needed. Because of her very highly developed intuition, she often gets inner messages for the person whom she is treating, and as she shares this information great healing is achieved.

Her basic training as a Human Service Counselor has helped her greatly in working with the V.O.N. program, Healthy Baby & Me. She continued in that direction and developed prenatal sessions which she calls “Hypno- intuitive”. That particular work brought her to a career as a Doula and a practitioner in the field of Hypno-birthing through which she helps couples conceive and experience a serene birthing experience. Janice is continually developing her skills; she has training in Reiki, Healing Touch, Consulting Hypnotist, Metamorphic Massage and Practitioner, Hypno-fertility, and Aroma Touch Trainer for Doterra Essential Oils.


In recent trips to Machu Picchu, Peru where she had the privilege of working with shamans, she was given the opportunity to deepen and widen her knowledge in that field. These encounters allowed her to add very unique techniques to her toolbox, namely the shamanic practices to remove negative energies accumulated in the body. These ancestral clearing techniques have been used for centuries in the Andes to help remove negative energy that clings to cells and makes it difficult for people to grow and thrive. Often, physical pain, disease, and emotional pain vanish after the negative energies are released. Janice offers an array of services, all aiming to help people relax, listen to their inner voice and take charge of their lives enabling them to leave the past behind and shift into a more harmonious life. Her many years as a Doula have helped her design a very unique program for “Birthing the Inner Child”.

Achieving Freedom

The 3 BIG K's

Freedom is achieved once a person clears from the Aura and chakra system the 3 big K's: Past Life Karma, Ancestral Karma, and present Karma. Karma in general are deeds from the past (In Christianity sins) acting as filters or blockers that don't allow a person to experience a joyful and successful life. These filters interfere with how a person lives and sees their life. The natural endeavor of the soul is to seek happiness. Furthermore, the Soul is set on the quest of evolving by doing everything it can to remove these filters. At an energetic level, a subject is constantly creating hormonal reactions to daily triggers based on unresolved Karma or Trauma. We can summarize a pathway as follows: Trigger = Emotional reaction = glandular secretion = hormonal messages = Shift in the Light Body = Aura Broadcast to again create more and more triggers. As you see this is an endless "LOOP" that is created and needs intervention.

A regular healing session with a trained healer can help remove some of this trauma and karma in 2 or three sessions, but in general, the 3 big K's interact within themselves creating an intricate web that needs to be dismantled. 

Ascending the Sacred Spiral is the process of dismantling the web of the 3 Karmas by engaging the information embedded in the energetic body to further achieve Freedom and further Enlightenment. When the chakra system is fully cleared from Karma and negative information is released from the energetic body, a person finally achieves FREEDOM. To accomplish this task the trained healer has to safely activate the individual's Kundalini Fire. It is only through the process of awakening the inner fire of Kundalini that Karma is burned and as a result, the person finally stops broadcasting karmic signals to others. These signals usually are conveying other individuals to engage as bad teachers, predators, bullies, energy suckers, etc., pushing the client to finally work the 3K’s and evolve by taking action and becoming fully empowered.  The final goal of the Ascending the Sacred Spiral training is to evolve Spiritually to the point that one can move through life "Impeccably", leaving no trace, becoming invisible and invincible. Once karma is resolved in the Kundalini Fires and there is no more negative broadcasting from the Luminous Field to the world, the individual finally achieves FREEDOM. How can we define Freedom? Freedom is a state of mind that allows a person to be in the world but not engage in the drama of the world. There is nothing karmically (unresolved as energies) in the Light Body that will pull and attract other people into one's life to trigger an experience that needs to be resolved in order to learn a lesson. A person is FREE, at peace, joyful and happy. After this spiritual state is accomplished a person can continue into Self Realization and Enlightenment, but not before all karmic debt is burned by the Kundalini Fires. 

Past Live Karma

When we are born we bring into our current life Karma and information from Past Lives that will play out for the sole purpose of accomplishing spiritual evolvement. As the karmic lessons are burned and lessons are learned the person evolves.  These stories and information are embedded in all the different bodies of a human during the fetus's body temple creation. The Light Body/Aura and the chakra system is the interface that allows a trained healer to have access to this information which seeks resolution and completion.

Ancestral Karma and Ancestral Spirits 

Our body temple is created by our parents and inherits all the information, traits - good and bad -, karma, and dharma of the parent's lineages. This information = stories, traumas, bad habits, genetic illnesses, and more, live within the created body temple. Under certain circumstances, triggers of this Ancestral Karma can be activated by visiting different world locations and people. This information is embedded in the DNA of the person and can be accessed through the interface of the chakra system and Light Body. Ancestral Karma and Ancestral Spirits act like curses on the person as the wrongdoings of the 2 lineages work against the client's happiness and success.

The inherited ancestral karma transferred to the person's body upon birth will always seek to resolve and will keep playing out as a loop unless it is burned in the Kundalini Fires. In Christianity, it was Jesus, not John the Baptist who baptized the disciples in the flame of the Holy Spirit, meaning Jesus had the power to activate the Kundalini Fires of His disciples and merged the Soul (female) with the Higher Self (Male). As a result of this Sacred Initiation, Jesus connected the disciples to the Divine Network of Higher Knowledge and Higher Consciousness. Ancestral Spirits are one of the hardest energy forms to be removed as they appear to work from a space that is not localized in the person's Energetic Body. These entities have easy access through ancestral inherited openings in the chakra interface/DNA portals and can mentally control an individual.  People cursed by these Ancestral Spirits are misdiagnosed as Bipolar or are in many cases, characterized as having multiple personality syndrome.

Present Karma and Trauma

This segment is self-explanatory. In one's journey, people have the capacity to make right or wrong decisions, but in some cases, their capacity to make decisions in life is done by others against their will. Present karma is generated when an individual makes the wrong decision breaking social rules and hurting others. When other people disrespect an individual's boundaries as in the case of perpetrators, abusers, or war, the person, the receiver on the other end is traumatized. Present Karma and Trauma need to be cleared from one's life by burning it in the Kundalini.

During the training, students learn to heal themselves as a result of using the ATSS spiritual tools and techniques taught throughout the apprenticeship and personal training sessions.

Through the training as healing and awakening happens students will be ready to start helping in healing their clients.
