Long overdue to have a thread on him as a notorious and obvious fraud.

I added Solevo to the thread title. There are several famed academics with the first three names that we don't want him confused with.

As you point out, his mother was born in Connecticut. Photos of him are also revealing, a fair skinned man teaching entirely white Americans. He's the son of a mestizo, meaning his father was mixed ancestry and culturally assimilated, likely had little or no identification as Native growing up.

Videos are equally revealing. No Peruvian accent at all. I'm sure he's not and never has been Native or he would brag about it. I haven't found much on his early life but feel it likely he grew up in the US, only went to Peru as an adult and likely is a US citizen. He's as much of an outsider as those he panders to.

One of his followers wrote this book and one of the reviews is revealing.

 I thought this book would be a look at another persons experience in traditional Peruvian practice.... But it mostly seemed to me to be highly altered, watered down and westernized, and it seemed like half of the book was based off other books written by westerners. The online descriptions here on Amazon seemed to suggest this book was about Peruvian curnaderismo, but upon reading the book I found out that his is a new age system created by mixing in many modern western ideas into a Peruvian cosmology. The online descriptions here on Amazon seemed to suggest this book was about Peruvian curnaderismo, but upon reading the book I found out that his is a new age system created by mixing in many modern western ideas into a Peruvian cosmology (the organization is even named after the Egyptian God Thoth).

A lot of the practices dont seem like what I see in Peru.... They mostly seem like an imitation of shamanism using western occult ideas infused with Andean cosmology. Like taking the names and characters from the Andean mysticism, but using western style occult and sometimes even westernized eastern religious ideas to try and connect with the Peruvian energies. A lot of the info in the book was just quoted from other books written by westerners, and I personally was hoping for more personal knowledge learned in Peru rather then quotes from academics studying the traditions as an outsider....

The parts that bugged me the most was when he would try to equate Peruvian cosmology using western terms that arent really the same. Sure, Uchu Pacha and Carl Jungs id might share a couple similarities, but they arent really the same - equating them as the same actually misses so much of the bigger picture and just turns the claims into misinformation that really misleads people and waters these traditions down more.... I would hope a student of the healing arts would want to preserve these traditions without watering them down so much.

I am Oscar Manuel Miro-Quesada and this is my story.


Quote
I was born in Lima, Peru, on August 21, 1951.

I was youngest of five half-siblings, a result of my mother’s third and father’s second marriages.

In 1978, at the Duke Chapel in Durham NC, Oscar Manuel Miro-Quesada, son of Dr. Oscar Miro-Quesada and Jean Solevo, married for the first time. Same birth date of August 21, 1951. He signed the marriage license Oscar M Miro-Quesada III.

I found a Peruvian birth certificate for Oscar Manuel Miro Quesada Solevo, born August 21, 1951, father Oscar Miro Quesada Cantuarias. Mother Jean Solevo (with her two other past surnames listed).

He is listed blanco on birth record and white on marriage.

In 1990 he said he was a psychotherapist.

Quote
Psychotherapist Oscar Miro-Quesada had a near-death experience after a car accident. He said he saw the crystal city at the end of the tunnel and a luminous Christlike figure, but no relatives.

Born in Peru, Miro-Quesada studied at Duke University and is finishing his dissertation for a doctorate in psychology from Emory University. His accident six years ago transformed his life, he said. Today he is clinical director of the Institute for Transformative Medicine, a holistic medical facility in West Palm Beach.

"People used to feel they were losing their minds because the experience wasn't well accepted, but today NDEs have been so widely documented by hospitals and doctors that most people can integrate the experience on their own," the psychotherapist said.

Somerville, Barbara. Orlando Sentinel; Orlando, Fla. [Orlando, Fla]09 May 1990)
------

In 1991, Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo and a business partner ran The International Human Potential Co. which offered seminars that "are designed to change the way people think about their jobs and their companies". The business slogan was "Harmony. Internalization. Transformation."

Quote
Miro-Quesada, a psychotherapist, explains the psychological angle.

"We teach people how to get along, by leading focus groups where openness, trust and self-disclosure are fundamental elements," Miro- Quesada said.

In 2000 he was identified as a "Peruvian ethnopsychologist".

Quote
For an auction, Stewart is bringing along some memorabilia, and Peruvian ethnopsychologist Oscar Miro-Quesada has offered a trip for four to Machu Picchu.

This small sample shows how Oscar Miro-Quesada Solevo has adjusted his claims according to whatever is popular in the New Age/Human Potential movements at the moment.

In a 2012 interview https://worldpeacelibrary.com/sites/files/transcripts/SummerOfPeace2012-06-OscarMiroQuesada.pdf he says that he was born and raised in Peru, born in Lince which is a district of Lima.

When he was one and half years old, his father worked for the Public Institue for Health and was stationed in remote rural areas. This included time in indigenous communities on the northern coast, the central Amazon region, and the central highlands.

Oscar claims that because of these experiences when he was very young that he feels "more resonant and in alignment with the indigenous conciousness".

He says he's always had an "affinity for indigenous mindset and indigenous heart".
