RAY CRIST

Ray Crist  is a world renowned visionary who offers his teachings from a deep well of knowledge of indigenous wisdom. He has been an apprentice of the Q'ero Nations elders since 2006 and through the last 15 years, he has shared this way with thousands of spiritual seekers. Ray has traveled the world and has spent the last three decades immersed in shamanism, various styles of yoga, Chinese medicine, and martial arts.  He has been offering workshops and trainings at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, NY Open Center, Yoga Journal, Blue Spirit, Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, and other centers around the world.

Ray’s trainings focus on how to use shamanic tools and yoga as technologies that assist us to reach an optimal state of being in order to live a balanced, empowered, and extraordinary life. 

Ray was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2003 and was given 3 months to live. He left his home country of Greece and in 2005 had surgery at the National Institute of Health (NIH) where he gave up his right kidney.  After that, he ventured in search of indigenous healers. His path led him through Mexico and Peru. To his surprise, the shamans he met told him that they couldn’t heal him ... but that they could train him to become a shaman and heal himself.

Ray went on to become an apprentice of three shamans from lineages as old as the Inca civilization and the Amazon jungle shamans - spending several months of each year living with them as a family while learning, studying, and healing. He received several initiations until he arrived at the top level of the Q'ero lineage.  By the 12th year of his apprenticeship, Ray was initiated by his teacher, Don Sebastian Pauccar Flores as a Kuraq Akulleq. This Quechua title translates to “seer” or “visionary” and comes with it a directive to share the Q'ero teachings with other nations as a planetary representative of the tribe's culture and medicine. This has become the mission of Ray’s life, and he founded The Jaguar Path in 2007 as the home base for that work. 

Ray is honored to share these teachings that he holds so close to his heart. He is known for focusing on affection and humor in his delivery, softening and opening the hearts of his students to receive the accelerated healing that these teachings can offer. Ray bows to the unfathomable power of this work and to the unlimited potential of each member of the ever-growing international Jaguar Path Tribe.

I COMMITTED TO SHARING THE GIFTS AND KNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I AM BOUND BY OATH TO THE JAGUAR SPIRIT TO SHARE THE HEALING PRACTICES AND SACRED TECHNOLOGIES OF PERU
