“Our happiest moments as travelers always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing in pursuit of something else” Lawrence Block
Each day we will open our bodies, breath and mind with morning Meditation and Yoga. Our days will be full drinking in the beauty of the culture and the magic of the land. Early evening yoga will be scheduled as time permits. I want to allow plenty of quiet moments to ponder and connect to the pulse of this sacred land.Day 1:We arrive in Cusco, then transfer to the Sacred Valley of the Inkas to rest and adjust to the altitude. In the afternoon we will meet with the shamans who will guide our fire ceremony this evening. We will enjoy a farm to table dinner with one anotherDay 2:Today we go to Moray, “The Belly of the Mother”, and with the Q’ero shamans we will create a despacho for connecting to Mother Earth.Day 3:Today we will journey to the ruins of Ollantaytambo. We will do a ceremony in the Naupa Iglesia, the old temple and receive the first carpay of the Pampamesayoq. This is a beautiful and powerful place to begin the path of the Inka tradition. Later in the afternoon we will continue to Machu Picchu.Day 4:This morning we will explore Macchu Picchu, the “City of the Inkas”. This mysterious site has fascinated tourists and scholars since its discovery in 1911. Machu Picchu is an incredible marvel of architectural design and structure. We will allow time to find a quiet place and expereince the wisdom of this magical place. Later in the day we will visit the hot springs of Aguas Caliente and explore this international town ~ around 4 pm we will return back to to the Sacred Valley.Day 5:Today we will visit the ruins at Pisaq and do the Quyaq Hampiy ceremony. We will be working with the condor feathers and we will bless the stones. We will return to the hotel, where coca readings and personal healing sessions with the Q’ero shamans will be available.Day 6:Our trip today takes us to the serene valley of Quillarumiyoq. We will learn about the Altomesayoq then have our Altomesayoq ceremony. This feminine valley, with a gentle flowing spring, small waterfall and moon temple is a special, purifying place which is both remote and easy to walk to.Day 7:Today we will go to Tipon and do a traditional ceremony for Mother Earth, honouring her and asking for health, prosperity and happiness. We will return to Cusco's and take in the sights and local artisans at the central market.Day 8:Today we will explore Cusco and nearby attractions, including the Temple of the Sun and four other Inka ruins: Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puka Pukara and Tambomachay.
