PERU: Cultural, Spiritual & Yogic Immersion

PERU: Cultural, Spiritual & Yogic Immersion

September 16-30, 2020

Is an adventurous excursion awaiting you? Are you ready to experience an epic Peruvian immersion you've never had? Let me tell ya, you'll definitely be checking this of your bucket list, so get ready!

Before we dive into the details, NO, you will not be in a pack of 50 more tourists rushing from place to place, taking thousands of photos without the raw immersion into the culture where you'll get to actually enjoy and absorb it all. You'll be diving in deep... into real traveler's shoes with a small group of likeminded that you may forget all about the camera. ;D

Part One = 8 days of adventure
September 16th - 23rd
~ We all fly into Lima, the capital of Peru. Visiting the city, old town, museums.
~ Cusco - the capital of Inca. The great town square is quite lively with visitors with narrow cobblestone streets climbing up the walls of the valley through the old buildings. Explore the town, museums, churches, cafes and local shops. Enjoy the culture at its finest!
~ Visit the historical ruins of upper city Sacsayhuaman.
~ Explore the Sacred Valley.
~ Private transportation will take us to Pisac famous for its indigenous market. Probably the best place to get something for safekeeping.
~ Ollantaytambo - This small town is a perfect reflection of Inca culture, their every-day life, their agricultural specifications and trading traditions. Tour the ruins of the last Inca fort of Ollantaytambo. The history of this very important area plays an important role in the life of the local people.
~ We'll take a scenic train ride to Aquas Calientes. Aquas Calientes is a touristy mecca in the foothill of Machu Picchu, (like a small Las Vegas in the middle of the jungle). We will settle at the hotel and you
will then be free to explore this little charming town busy with tourists preparing for the Machu Picchu visit.
~ Machu Picchu - We will enter the Park as if walking into the clouds! We will climb about 1 km up the Mountain of Machu Picchu or Huayna Picchu. Here we will be rewarded with unbelievable view of Machu Picchu from a bird eye point of view! The narrow Inca stairs you'll see there are beautiful to experience. Most of the stairs are in their original state and the rest is reconstructed by old Inca traditions. Our exploration of Machu Picchu and the inca's history will be a amazing and memorable experience. The energy will be very high so we will take time to ground our selves and take in the high energy through meditation on the sacred Machu Picchu terrace.
~ After exploring the site we catch the Peru Rail scenic train back to Cusco. If you will have the energy to, we will explore Cusco before we leave this town, missing it already...
~ Activate the Yogi in you as we create time and space for Yoga and Meditation! True Yoga is off the mat so as we anchor the Higher Self into the body on the mat, we'll be able to experience this Immersive Peruvian Journey on a whole new level. ♥
~ Accommodation (hostels and hotels)
~ All internal flights, train and other transportation

Part Two = 9 days of adventure
September 22nd -30th
~ Lima - the capital of Peru.We will visit the city, old town, museums.
~ Pucallpa - This will be the beginning of your spiritual journey with Earth Medicine and the activation of your deepest self. Life will never be the same.We will meet with our spiritual guide in preparation for our journey to the heart of the Amazon jungle.
~ We will take a boat ride on the Ucayali river (Amazon river tributary) to a small village of Betane.
~ We take a hike deeper into the jungle where we settle in our net tents under palm leaf cabanas. This will be our home for the length of the stay. We strongly believe that the surroundings of Amazonia are the key to a deeper connection with your inner self. The healing begins when you submerge and give in to the nature around you. The jungle will speak to you through the process! It will be beautiful..
~ The herbal baths will cleanse your body and soul and will help you take in whatever our teachers have prepared for us. You will have your own personal journey unlike anyone else in our intimate group of explorers. Some of you will be willing to share the experiences while others may want to go through it alone. All are honored.
~ Four Earth Healing ceremonies will be offered to you by Shipibo shamans.
~ Throughout the time here we will also get to know the culture of the locals through the engagement and participation of traditional crafts and teaching to understand the meaning of ikaras and the writings in the sewing patterns. We wish you to find what you are seeking for. May the Mother Earth bring you hOMe to where you belong.
~ Ecstatic Dance Party
~ Yet again, we will continue to activate the Yogi within us as we create time and space for Yoga and Meditation in the jungle as well!
~ Accommodations (hostels, hotels nd cabanas)
~ All internal flights, boat trip and other transportation
