Welcome To Luminosity Healing Arts


"Without exaggerating, I have to say that this has been one of the most powerful experiences of my life so far. Every day I felt challenged and supported. I found strengths in myself that I had no idea we’re still there. I return home with a new much more positive and playful map of the next stage of my life. "-Susan Barnes

"I was able to feel and release some old wounds, reconnect with Mother Earth, my ancestors, and my own Truth and Essence. I feel oneness with everything- something that I knew in my mind before but had no actual cellular experience of. This retreat is a beautiful gift that I will never forget." - Kasia Tennsent

"I am so extremely fortunate to have been a participant on the Peru Retreat. My Body, Mind & Spirit were stretched into grace-filled joyful expressions I had never before experienced. I laughed and cried, feeling old layers peel away. I tapped into aspects of myself I denied and discovered gifts I hadn't known were possible. This was due to the amazing guidance and support by Ashera who had absolute integrity, compassion, humor and open heartedness. Her skills in creating and holding a safe space were impressive. I was held in a container of deep love and respect." Jo McKernan

Join us in the Sacred Valley of Peru & Machu Picchu in the majestic Andes mountains and step into a new level of your connection with nature and your deepest self. This transformational journey is a rites of passage that takes you to the most mystical places on earth where there is a high frequency of beauty and healing energy. Come and weave through the Sacred valley and its mystical sites and portals.

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 work with Alchemical Mysteries including sacred sound, divination and mystery school teachings connecting the web of consciousness accross space and time.

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 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.



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. We will have a few dinners out at incredible restaurants so you will be able to choose from a variety of choices.

Our journey will take us to Machu Picchu the Crystal City. We enter this magnificent 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 Indigenous Medicine Traditions & Q'ero Wisdom Keepers & Curanderas

You will be embraced by the Q'ero shamans, the earth and 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 Karpays, initiations in the form of transmissions to transform your human energy field into that of homo luminous, a 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 work with and experienced Curandera (healer). She will offer us ceremonial work with the elements and empower 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 mostly work with Don Basillio, Dona Sabina & Dona Santusa. Though 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
