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 will be a small and intimate group of people interested in experiencing deep sacred communion with 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. If you have questions about the ceremonies please make an appointment to meet with me.

This will be 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. This travel itinerary is infused with spiritual connections with my personal mentors and sacred resources in Cusco. This an all inclusive spiritual pilgrimage experience that you would not be able to create on your own. I will make sure you are well taken care of and have the support to integrate your deep personal awakenings.

Experiencing Grandmother Teacher Plant Ceremony is an opportunity to deepen and clarify your personal healing and spiritual evolution. Inside of each one of us, there is an essence. According to our experiences and background, we can give this essence many different names.

Inside of you, there is a less tangible reality that is Consciousness itself. As you navigate the profundity of Ceremony and receiving the Medicine, you will have the opportunity to see and know the Inner World of Consciousness. Inside of you, there is the substance of all Life.

Sacred Ceremony is not just an opportunity to experience Ayahuasca. We are drinking Ayahuasca as medicine, where the Vine becomes a sacred conduit helping us understand the reality of who we are.

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 cold when you read about it being 32 degrees outside in the newspaper? The fastest way to know your Divinity is to experience it yourself.

Please see itinerary below.

Join us this fall for a once in a lifetime experience.

"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 - 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. Specifics may differ, but the substance is always the same.." Phil Cousineau, The Art of Pilgrimage: Conari Press, Berkeley, CA. 1998
