On these journeys your will experience inner healing as we weave the spiritual shamanic energy practices with yoga, movement, visit incredible sacred sites, work with the Q'ero shamans in sacred ceremonies and immerse in breathtaking natural beauty.

Through Andean healing practices, and the medicine wheel work, we embark on a transformative process where we have an opportunity to come into balance, awaken our full potential and open to a deeper sense of peace and love within ourselves and take it back with us into our daily life.

Initiations into the Alchemical Elements will allow us to transform Hucha (heavy energy) to Sami (light energy). Through fire, water, earth and air ceremonies we learn how to transform our energy. Simple and ancient practices for transformation will be experienced.

We will work with sacred sound- crystal bowls, mantras, bija, sounds, wild chant/song and expressing our own unique voices- we awaken and attune to the highest vibration of light as we weave our way through the Sacred Valley and its mystical sites and portals.

We will experience a Plant Medicine Ceremony with Hauchuma (also called San Pedro). This cactus is a heart opener allowing us to let go of what does not serve us and connect with nature and the beauty of the earth. We will receive loving heart teachings from the plant and the earth unique to each of us. This is daytime ceremony in the pristine mountains followed by sacred fire.

Incredible mystical sacred sites and nature’s portals will activate our deep inner knowing and rememberence. As we merge with the waterfalls, rivers, majestic mountains and the stars we are reminded of our own power and grace.

This journey is an authentic experience into the spirit of the Andes. It is not a typical tourist trip. You will get to spend time to get to know the Don Basillio, a Q'ero wisdom keeper, be initiated into the Andean traditions and visit some off the beaten path sites and mountain.

Location:

We come together at Sach'a Munay Retreat Center located at the base of a stunning waterfall and the powerful mountains of Pitisuri and Sawasiray in the middle of the Sacred Valley by the small village of Arin, one hour and fifteen minutes from Cusco. This incredible center is an oasis, a natural landscape of trees, beautiful rivers, waterfalls, & lakes, embraces us as we cleanse and receive its liquid light energy.  Sach'a Munay is a non profit so proceeds go toward projects in the villages.

You will have time to explore the beautiful nature around the center, the gardens and rivers. You will enjoy private healing sessions and massage. There will be time to lay in a hammock and take a nap and receive the incredible beauty of nature, among the butterflies and birds.

 

 

Three fresh organic vegetarian nourishing organic meals with fish options will be served daily. There are organic gardens around the land so we will be served farm fresh to table.

The last part ofour journey will take us to Machu Picchu the Crystal City. We enter this magnificient wonder of the world ceremonially to open the portals of awareness and receive its immense beauty. There will also be time for your to explore the site on your own and find your own deep connection to the magic of Machu Picchu.

We will stay at beautiful comfortable hotels both in Machu Picchu and in the quaint town of Ollantaytambo.

The Andean Traditions & Q'ero Wisdom Keepers & Curanderas

You will be embraced by the Q'ero shamans, the wisdom keepers from the high Andes who are powerful and filled with laughter and love. They will guide us back in to balance with all of creation. In the Andean indigenous wisdom tradition, it is said we are in the age of the “Tariapaycha”, a time of emerging consciousness that allows us to fully heal ourselves and share that gift with others.

On the journeys you will receive energetic rites. The Q'ero will offer the Karpays, initiations and transmissions to transform your human energy field into that of homo luminous, luminous beings. The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a new human appearing on the planet, one who lives free of fear and resides in his or her transcendent nature.

We also have some time to work with and experienced Curandera (healer), Wilma Pinedo. She will offer us ceremonial work with the elements and empowers us to learn how to heal ourselves and step into our own power.

Join us on this transformational journey of awakening in Peru, the mystical land of Pachamama, mother earth, and experience the deep inner mysteries of healing into your most authentic self. Those who have joined the last few retreats to Peru have said it was the experience of their lifetime and has transformed their lives!


 

Your Guides

The Q'ero Wisdom Keepers:

The Q'ero are considered the wisdom keepers from the high Andes. These beautiful healers embody the true essence of love as they share and transmit their healing and message.

The Q'ero are the direct descendants of the Inca, who, 500 years ago, fled to the safety of the sacred mountains to escape the Spanish Conquistadors. They fled and made their villages in the clouds at 14,000 ft. Fortunately, the Spanish failed to find them there.

The Inca Master Shamans were considered the "Wisdom Keepers". Their oral tradition preserved the ancient healing methods, rituals and the prophecies for the future of human beings and the planet. This knowledge has remained uncontaminated for thousands of years.

The Q'ero understood that there would be a time when the world needed to remember the ancient wisdom. At this time, they would come down from their lofty hiding place to spread their knowledge. The time is now.  With their infinite graciousness they are offering this knowledge to all of us with their most open hearts.We will work mostly Don Basillio, Dona Sabina & Dona Santusa. We may work with others as well.

 

Curandera- Vilma Pinedo

Vilma Pinedo comes from a long line of healers from the Andes mountains of Peru. Vilma's grandparents are renowned shamans, and she was called to this path before she was born, when lightning struck her mother while pregnant with Vilma. She grew up surrounded by master healers and began her path as a curandera (healer) at the age of 12, reading coca leaves and using her intuition to tell people how to heal themselves often with amazing results. Vilma learned English ( a rarity in the Andes) and was one of the people asked to accompany the Dalai Lama to Machu Picchu. She uses her fit as a tool for peace, healing and unity
