In October we will be back again to Peru, the land of the Q’ero-Inca Shamans, the Aymara Masters, of ancient mystical power places, sun temples and archaeological findings. Many of these are estimated to be over 12,000 years old and show us our earthly and galactic past. As always on my travels, local Peruvian Q’eros Masters of the Living Energy and Inca shamans, spiritual guides and local Indios accompany us, to offer us deep insights into the ancient pre-Colombian culture and its secrets.
Program: the data is known, but waiting for confirmation
You arrive at Cusco airport, transfer to our hotel in Cusco city. As international flights are quite long and tiring, you have this day off to sleep and get used to the high altitude. Cusco is at 3400 m.
Breakfast at the hotel. Later in the morning we meet with the group in the hotel lounge. After a Peruvian lunch we drive to a natural power place to greet the Cosmic Mother “Pacha Mama” and her guardians of the earth, the mountains and the elements. This first ceremony, led by several Q´ero Inca Shaman Elders, is always impressive and intense. In this ceremony we ask Pacha Mama for permission and protection. At the beginning of the journey it is optimal to express your personal intention. In the evening we can have dinner together. However, some always prefer to go to bed (jet lag!), so free choice!(F/L)

The Q’ero shamans await us with a Pachamama ceremony, which is a special experience in this untouched nature.
We are close to the sky and the energy here is very pure! Our lunch, dinner and overnight stay is with the Qeros. It is easy, but a real adventure to spend time with your community in their own world. We have a picnic in the nature, near lagoons, surrounded by snowy mountain peaks. And …..it is cold, but the sun is shining most days.

A participant wrote to me: “For me the South America trip was also a turning point. That was years ago, and so many things have changed since then. I have changed. Exactly this BEING (without WANTING “something”) is very easy for me. Who would have thought that”
