Shamanic Peru Pilgrimage, Oct. 28th-Nov.8th, 2017

Postponed till spring of 2018

 

Last year I was blessed to have gone to Peru for my first pilgrimage.

I knew in my soul I needed to go to release the past trauma of my son’s death.

Isidro, the shaman at Ausangate, told me that I had been there for many lifetimes and will keep coming back.

He was right.

I came back a changed woman on a core, DNA level. You can read about what happened at the end of my Suicide Blog.

The Retreat Center I stayed at last year also felt like home. The people there were so warm and loving. Wish I knew the language!!

The Center is called Paz Y Luz ( Peace and Love)  and is in the sweet town of Pisac, outside of Cusco. The energy of the Sacred Valley and the mountain spirits there are incredible. I am glad we will be at one place for a week to really sink into the land.

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

The waterfall is the Irene Waterfall we will go to on the Day of the Dead. Very powerful water spirits there!

It is here, at this sweet Retreat Center that I will be teaching the Munay Ki Sacred Rites of the Quechua People.

What are the Munay Ki Rites?

Munay- Ki comes from the Quechua word that means, ” I love you.” The Munay Ki are the nine energetic rites of initiation to become a person of wisdom and power.The rites are common to all shamanic traditions even though they are expressed in different forms and styles in different cultures. They where brought to the Americas by the first medicine men and woman who crossed the Bering Straights from Siberia during the glacial period some 30,000 years ago. Theses courageous travelers were the Laika, the Earth Keepers of old, who had accepted the stewardship of all creation.

The Laika are ordinary men and woman who live extraordinary  lives. They are not born with special gifts of Spirit; they acquire uncommon grace and power through prayer, study of the wisdom teachings or insights, and discipline. The Laika felt that people could come to the Munau-Ki when they were ready and felt a calling to do so.

Many of us have felt a calling to Spirit, and long to make a difference in the world and in our lives.When you come to the path of the Earth Keepers with sincere intention and an open heart, you will soon notice that you are not alone. With love, these Earth Keeps and the other Luminous Beings pass their power and vision to us!

I am delighted to be able to share  these amazing healing rites with you all. And at the same time, visit sacred sites that HOLD the energy of these teachings!

As always, spirit has guided me to do this and I will have support and spiritual guidance daily. In the mornings we will gather in sacred circle and share from out hearts. Slowly I will give the Rites, one or two a day in the morning. Then we will drive to the various sacred sites to go deeper with the transmissions. It is here, on the land, that we can truly embody the Rites, as the spirits live there.We will have time for silence, stillness and space.

Besides me as the leader/shaman and teacher, we will be working with Vilma Pinedo, Louisa Callery and for one day, Don Augestine, who is a Quechua elder. Here is a nice U Tube about Vilma.

Both, Vilma, Don Augestine and myself will be sharing the medicine of the Despacho ( prayer bundles) and I will share the sacred Pipe, which I have one which carries Tibetan medicine  and came to me to share in Peru.

Healing prayers into the Despacho

On Nov.1st, we will have a special Ceremony for the Day of the Dead. I am asking all who come ( and we are opening this to the community), to bring pictures of those who have passed over and some food that is their favorite foods that we will share afterwards. It is a very powerful night when the veil is so thin, you can feel and touch your relative.

We will be learning the Rites from Oct 28th to Nov 4th.

Nov 5th we will be traveling to Apu Ausangate for the healing on the mountain. We decided to just go one day as the elevation is very high. The time in Pisac will help us to acclimate .

At the foothill of the Apu, we will be staying in a cozy hostel. They have a natural hot spring there that will be perfect for before and after the 2 hr. horse rise to and from Ausangate.

While we are up there, Vilma will be taking us to the healing Lagoons for a powerful letting go ceremony.

This is where it all happened for me last year!

I am excited to bring you to this very sacred mountain. The healing medicine is beyond words.

We will return to Paz Y Luz on the 6th and the 7th we will go to Cusco for our last day in Peru. This will be a day off. We will end our day with a closing Ceremony and a small give-away.

The two days off ( Nov 2nd and 8th). Folks can get healings from Louisa or Vilma, go into town to shop, go to the Spa which is right there or folks can arrange to go to Machu Picchu, leaving early in the morning.

The last day is a day off in Cusco. You can arrange to stay an extra day or two if you want to go to Machu Picchu . You will have to let the hotel know.

I am only taking eight students.

The cost is $1,785.

You can pay all at once or in installments.

If you stat to pay by June , it would be $446.25 for 4 months. Please pay the total by the end of Sept. as hat is when I need to pay Peru.
