LAST PLACE (almost fully booked, only one place over)
This healing journey through the Andes will take you to a deeper layer of powerful pre-Inca and Inca cultures, and give you the keys to balance the feminine and the masculine in yourself and awaken your heart energy.
This journey has been carefully created to transmit to you the deeper wisdom of the Andes. The sacred places we visit are huge power places where we can recharge, feed and nurture ourselves in balance between giving and receiving (exchanging or in Quechua we call this Ayni).
The focus is on feeling and experiencing, through rituals, ceremonies, meditations, initiations, walks, connecting with nature, with local families and the energy of the sacred places & temples….
Pachamama (Mother Earth) invites us to land in her, Mama Qocha (the Sacred Water) invites us to rejuvenate, cleanse and purify ourselves, to heal. To Abuelo Fuego (Grandfather Fire) we offer our despachos and sing to open our hearts. Hermano Wayra (Brother Wind) opens our throats and makes us sing and move together with the birds and the sounds of the wind. Taita Inti, Mama Quilla (Father Sun and Grandmother Moon) and the Ch’achas (the Star Brothers and Sisters), are always present with us.
Throughout this journey we wish to bring balance between your feminine and masculine energy, between all elements, and open the path of your Heart. In the Andes, everything is about the unity between duality. And that unity is in your Heart.
From our deep roots, well centered in our own energy, we can set out to accomplish our soul mission and life’s mission. In the Andes we walk the path of oneness, of the wise man and wise woman.
First part of the journey will start in Cusco and in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We travel high into the Andes where we can breathe in the purest energy, allow the silence, absorb the magic of the Apus and the Lagoons, and heal ourselves at a deep cellular level. We make despachos, we hold ceremonies and meditations, we receive initiations. We connect with wide archaeological temple complexes and make walks and trekkings in Saqsayhuaman, Pisaq, the High Andes, Moray, over Inca terraces, to Ñaupay Iglesia (and optional Machu Picchu). We immerse ourselves and feed on the magic of the Inca landscape, ancient wisdom and power places. We also include one day in El Paraíso, a paradise place in the Sacred Valley where we have a Huachuma ceremony. Taking Huachuma, the Sacred San Pedro Cactus of the Andes, is optional but consider it a great opportunity to heal yourself in the midst of ashtonishing nature.
Second part is around and on Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca is the source of the Incas – the children of the Sun, and radiates a gentle feminine power. It is considered as the place on earth where feminine frequency radiates into the world. We meet the cultures of Colla, Pucara and Aymara, ancestors of the Inca empire. We visit magical sites as Chuquito, Aramu Muro, the temples on Amantaní and Sillustani. For those who wish, there is and extension of 3 days (depending on Covid regulations if we can cross the Bolivian border) to travel to the Island of the Sun and the Moon.
The sacred places, ceremonies, rituals, initiations and the energy of Lake Titicaca, give us the space to release old patterns, to absorb the power of the Sun and the light and to come home in ourselves.
A transformative journey that will vibrate in every cell of your body.
Guided tour: by Veerle Phara & Yves
with the support of local guides and medicine man & women
Veerle Phara (55): I have been travelling to and connecting with Latin America since I was 16. I lived and worked in Chile for 5 years, Spanish is the language of my heart, I have been guiding groups through Latin America for 23 years. This is the 9th time that we make a ceremonial trip to the Andes with a group, I have travelled to Peru and Bolivia about 15x.
Latin America is my soul continent. I know it inside out, I have studied many indigenous cultures and learned a lot from their values, norms, rituals and ceremonies. I was initiated as an Inca priestess on the Island of the Moon (Isla de la luna, Bolivia) and follow the path as Paqa, Andean medicine woman.
This healing journey has been created through a lot of experience in the Andes. It is a unique experience that changes your life and heals you to a deep cellular level.
A gift for yourself, for your mind, heart and soul.
Urpillay Sonqollay, from Quechua: I send you love and light from my heart
