Peru Pilgrimage and Vision Quest, May 24th- June 4th, 2019

I invite you to come for an adventure of a lifetime!

The Sacred Valley of Peru.

Give yourself the GIFT of 12 days exploring the magical and spiritual land of the Sacred Valley in the Andes mountains.

Our pilgrimage will include a trip to Lake Titicaca and a Vision Quest at Kinsa Cocha. We will also visit some sacred sites and have time for yoga, rest, meditation, caco and kirtan and of course, shopping!.

We will have two days off and some late afternoons. There is also a Healing Spa right there if you are in need of a massage.

Vilma will also give her famous coco leaf readings.

Most morning we will have Council Circle for some shamanic teachings, sharing and preparing for the Vision Quest.

I alway leave space and time for reflection and time to explore the land.

We will have Ceremonies lead by Rose (the Pipe Ceremony ) and our Quechua brother and sister, Wilson and Vilma Pinedo, who will be gifting us with their Despacho Ceremonies and be our tour guides.

The Vision Quest will be a one day (dawn to dusk) time done in the tradition Ojibwa style.  We will be on the land known as The Three Lakes, Kinsa Cocha.  Only the Quechua live there…and all the nature spirits!

The Vision Quest is a powerful rite of passage that gives you the opportunity to sit in silence and stillness. When in nature, we have the opportunity to connect to the divine in such a powerful  way.

The land and spirits there are so loving. The mountains ( Apus) are there to carry us, hold us and heal us.

Fasting on water will be an option. There will be a sacred fire that you can come to all day to pray.

Teaching on the Vision Quest the day before.

At Lake Titicaca we will get to visit the floating islands. Second full day we go to Aramu Muro (Interdemensional Doorway). A deeply spiritual place! Great to go right before the VQ!

On the way back we will visit the Temple of Wiracocha.

We will be staying at Nidra Wasi ( formally Paz Y Luz) Center in Pisac.

The rooms are cozy, clean and quiet.

Check them out on their web site and see the wonderful pictures of the Center and their Spa. Google Paz Y Luz.
