Peru is one, of 10 mega-diverse countries in the world. A country blessed with a unique heritage, where riches are measured in well-being and harmony with nature.

70% of the planet's biological diversity is concentrated within its borders.

According to the Holdridge classification, it has 84 of the 117 life zones that exist on Earth. *

This amazing country has more birds than North American and Europe put together, and it records the largest number of endemic species in the world, more than 120.

Its location in the central-west part of South America, the two ocean currents that feed its coasts, and the Andes Mountain Range, create the ideal conditions for this kind of biodiversity and physical abundance.

Spending time in this country one could make the argument that being rich is not about having lots of material things – it is about the abundance of color, nature, beauty, nourishment, diversity, experiences, and for me— personal fulfillment.

It is home to a piece of my heart and soul.

Peru is a land blessed with the most precious riches of all, the kinds of treasure you discover when going within.

I don't know how this happened, or how I even found myself here years ago, only that I met a woman in California, who told me she lead spiritual journeys to the Andes, and three months later I was in Peru on my own spiritual journey. She is now a cherished friend and trusted colleague.

Peru is a land blessed with the most precious riches of all, the kinds of treasure you discover when going within.

These days I return regularly to Peru to lead my own spiritual journeys for people seeking a deep understanding of themselves and their higher purpose. 

I return to this land for my own well-being and strength and the lessons I receive about true abundance and wealth, that seem only to be found in Peru, a second home for my hear. And I return for continued training and teachings with my Elders & Teachers of the Inca Q'ero and Amazonian Shipibo healing traditions. Here nothing is conceptual, relationships to the mountains, the animals, the water, and the Spirits are real and tangible.

The word Apu is an ancient word, of the Quechua language, the language of the Inca descendants, the Q'ero people of the high Andes. We speak the word Apu to refer to the sacred mountains themselves; each mountain has its own spirit, with the spirit going by the name of its mountain peak i.e. Apu Ausangate, or Apu Machu Picchu.

2018 Spiritual Pilgrimage to Peru

March 2018 & October 2018

The Apu Mountain Spirits serve as protectors, watching over our relationships, families, homes, and lives. They may be called upon through offerings or asked to become personal guardians in initiations like my own pictured below.

Making pilgrimage to Apu Ausangate, the most auspicious of the Mountain Spirits in the Cusco region, and asking for protection with an offering I am establishing a relationship with this Spirit, and I may call upon Apu Ausangate as guardian or protector for wisdom and guidance on my personal spiritual path or help with my work with others as Spiritual Guide and Healer.

 Initiation at the base of Apu Ausangate, with my Teacher Maestro Lorenzo, of the Inka Q'ero lineage, and my friend and colleague Q'orianka Gallegos, Inka High Priestess.

*Source: PROMPERÚ : Peru began its "Richest Country In the World" Marketing Campaign in 2017 — "it offers a new perception that being rich is based on experiences rather than material possessions." ‘Peru, the richest country in the world’ embraces a new concept for the term ‘wealth’, and reimagines what ‘being rich’ is really about.

Though this slogan resonates with much of what I feel and experience about the land of Peru, I wonder what this has in store for the future of tourism and pure experience while visiting this beautiful country. That being said, I continue to plan to lead spiritual journeys to Peru throughout the year for those seeking a greater connection to their higher self and understanding of their life path. Our time spent in Peru, honors the sacredness of the land, its ancient and present day heritage, and all the riches, spiritual and material, that this country has to offer.
