In many ancient cultures divination was used to determine if an action taken would be favorable. In ancient Greece, an oracle was a seer who was the intermediary between the people and the gods and goddesses. In The Chakana Oracle, the cards themselves play the role of the ancient oracle, connecting the user to an ancient Andean lineage, whose roots go back over 500 years to the Inka Empire.

The Chakana Oracle Guidebook, which is a companion to The Chakana Oracle Card Deck, includes:

- In-depth information with rich, full-color illustrations of Andean cosmology and symbology.

- Layouts for divination work with a foundation that is based on the geography of the terrestrial overlaid with the energy of the celestial.

- Description, interpretation, and practice for each of the 100 oracle cards in The Chakana Oracle Card Deck.

The Chakana Oracle Card Deck presents 100 energetic companions from the Andean cosmology that can help the user activate, animate, and move energy within different grids of time, dimensions, and portals. Each card includes a photograph of the companion as well as its title in the native language of Quechua with its English translation.

The Chakana Oracle is a vehicle designed to help the user explore the depth and breadth of who they are, who they are connected to, and what they’re capable of achieving. It also presents ways to find and then engage their own energy companions. So, user, journey, sing, reweave stories, and activate your living energy!

Wake is a counselor, convener, teacher, and group facilitator. He is a student of the Andean Traditions, especially as they are embodied in the Mesa, the Sacred Andean Bundle.
Wake graduated from Stanford University in 1973 with a BA in history and political science. He received his Juris Doctor law degree in 1976 from Northwestern University School of Law. He practiced in the estate planning field. Wake took a sabbatical from that practice in 1999 and traveled to Peru with his family. There he met shamans, engaged in ceremony, received transmissions, and never looked back. He traveled there, on solo quests and as a facilitator, for the next two decades. He's been sharing his experiences and knowledge through mentoring, classes, gatherings, and journeys throughout this time.

Wake returned to Cusco in October, 2019, to celebrate a 20-year immersion in the Andean Ways. He has been particularly drawn by the synergy of cloth and stone. With the special blessings of don Francisco and dona Juanita, Wake continues his exploration of mesa stewardship and energy dynamics held within these sacred threads.
