Spiritual Journeys to Machu Picchu : Shamanic Healing

An experience of a lifetime, sacred pilgrimage to Cusco and Machu Picchu Peru.

October 28-November 4th 2017

This is a small and intimate pilgrimage for people interested in experiencing deep sacred communion with their inner truth on the land of the Incas. This spiritual journey is open to both women and men seeking to experience a deep inner knowing of themselves and their life purpose. This Spiritual Pilgrimage will include several sacred Ceremonies and multiple trips to sacred sites, travel to Machu Picchu being only one of the sacred temples we will visit and make pilgrimage for healing.

This is a very personalized experience to visit and connect with the ancient spiritual energies that exist at some of the most important Sacred Sites in the world. The travel itinerary is infused with spiritual connections with my personal mentors and sacred resources in Cusco.

I have designed the itinerary and included sacred Inca Rites, Cleansing Ceremony, Sacred Grandmother Teacher Plant Ceremony, and Thanksgiving Ceremony with my Teachers, Indigenous Shamans, to create a container of deep spiritual cleansing and integration. I will make sure that you have the support to integrate your deep personal awakenings. This pilgrimage will be nothing short of life changing.

In the realm of spirituality, there is a tendency to read books on the subject for years and years and years. But, can you feel the rain on your face when you read about it on your mobile device?

The fastest and most profound way to know your Divinity is to experience it yourself.

Participating in Grandmother Teacher Plant Ceremony on the land of Peru is a rare opportunity to deepen and clarify your personal healing and spiritual evolution. Sacred Ceremony is not just an opportunity to experience Grandmother Ayahuasca. We are receiving the Teacher Plants and drinking Ayahuasca as medicine, where the Vine becomes a sacred conduit to help us understand the reality of who we are. As you navigate the profundity of becoming Ceremony and receiving the Medicine, you will have the opportunity to see and know the Inner World of Your Own Divinity.

Due to the special nature of this offering please let me know if you are curious about attending this retreat by sending an email to chloe@exploredeeply.com, so that we may schedule a time to meet and talk about the details. If you have questions about the ceremonies please make an appointment to meet with me. Please see itinerary below.

Please make an appointment to talk to Chloë about the Pilgrimage to ask questions to determine if this trip is the Spiritual adventure that your soul has been seeking.

"For millennia, the cry in the heart for embarking upon a meaningful journey has been answered by pilgrimage, a transformative journey to a sacred center. It calls for a journey to a holy site associated with Gods, saints, or heroes, or to a natural setting imbued with spiritual power, or to a revered temple to seek counsel. To people the world over, pilgrimage is a spiritual exercise, an act of devotion to find a source of healing, or even to perform a penance. Always, it is a journey of risk and renewal. For a journey without challenge has no meaning; one without purpose has no soul...

The object of pilgrimage is not rest and recreation — or to get away from it all.

To set out on a pilgrimage is to throw down a challenge to everyday life.

Nothing matters now but this adventure. Travelers jostle each other to board the train [bus, plane] where they crowd together for a journey that may last several days. After that there is a stony road to climb on foot — a rough, wild path in a landscape where everything is new.

The naked glitter of the sacred mountain stirs the imagination; the adventure of self-conquest has begun...."
