The Mountains are the Heart of Pachamama
The Amazon is the Blood that flows through the Heart

Machu Picchu   Cuzco   Sacred Valley   Raqchi
Ollantaytambo   Killarumiyoq   Moray   Pisaq
Names out of the legend of The Incas
All are alive and well today.

The Inca have never left the Sacred Temples of Peru,
these places of ancient knowledge, initiation and teaching.
We come to know this as we feel their presence in
the ancient temples working with us in sacred ceremony.

In the jungle, we go deep into the heart of the Amazon.
Flowers every color of the rainbow and large enough to
fill both hands with one blossom grow abundantly.
Butterflies, five inches in width, fly freely through the foliage.
Monkeys jump from branch to branch.
At night, we can hear the call of the jaguar.

DAY 1 May 28:

We fly into Lima, where we will stay until our flight to the Amazon in the morning.

DAY 2 May 29:

In the morning, we fly to Puerto Maldonado in the Amazon. We take the boat downriver, Rio Madre de Dios, to a beautiful lodge where we will stay while we are in the jungle. On this day, we perceive the primal beauty of the jungle. Its pulsing vitality is immediately felt and helps us to wake our Primal Self. As we become visible to the jungle, the jungle becomes visible to us. In this way, we come to know the Primal Self within each of us.

DAY 3 May 30:

Today, we go to Lago Apu Victor, a lake deep in the jungle, in the morning. As we walk through the jungle, we see the wonders of the rain forest, always new, always ancient, always unique. In the evening, we go into the jungle where we are in deep sacred ceremony, asking those who dwell in the jungle to guide us so that we can see through the eyes of the Primal Self within each of us. Sniffing life out, knowing what we know, without personal story in the way, reminding us how to perceive well beyond the five senses of the physical.

DAY 4 May 31:

We go to the Island of the Monkeys and then spend the rest of the day walking in the jungle. Simply enjoying its beauty and vital serenity, we perceive where the seeds of the jungle have taken root within us. We give our thanks to the jungle.

DAY 5 June 1:

We go back upriver to fly to Cuzco. Cuzco is the capital of the Incan empire. It was built in the shape of a jaguar and it is said that Cuzco is the head of the jaguar. We go to Amaru Machay and Saqsayhuaman, names out of legend these sacred places of the Inca. Amaru Machay is altars naturally set within two caves. In this ancient place, we shed ourselves of old skin, much like a serpent molts its skin, so that our true colors, vibrant and rich with life, can shine through. Saqsayhuaman reminds us of the eternal strength that is within us. We have the rest of the day in Cuzco to give you the time to acclimate to the heights. We can go to the marketplace and see the sights of the city.

DAY 6 June 2:

In these sacred places, you can bring the knowledge within you to full consciousness. In this way, you are continuing the work you agreed to before you were ever born into a physical body. Today, we travel to Raqchi, Wiracocha, the Temple of the Godmaker. This is a sacred temple consisting of a series of altars and kivas. Priestesses worked here with initiates to bring them to their full potential. It is here that initiations long forgotten or left unfinished can be brought to completion. We return to Cuzco for the night.

DAY 7 June 3:

From Cuzco, we go to Pisaq, Moray and then to Ollantaytambo. All of these are ancient sacred places. Pisaq, The Temple of The Falcon, where we are guided to fly higher than we think we can. The markets of Pisaq are reknown throughout The Sacred Valley and where we will have lunch. We then go to Killarumiyoq, the Temple of the Moon, a sacred temple dedicated to Mama Killa, Mother Moon. With Her help, we can see with Owl's eyes deep within ourselves. In the bathing pools at Killarumiyoq, we cleanse ourselves in sacred ceremony. From Killarumiyoq, we go to Moray, wombs of Pachamama. From there, we go to Ollantaytambo, where The Temple of the Winds overlooks the town. Here we guided by The Winds, showing us where we are meant to go. We stay the night here.

DAY 8 June 4:

We leave Ollantaytambo and then travel by train to the town of Aguas Calientes located in the Machu Picchu range. We stay at a hotel overlooking the Urubamba River.

DAY 9 June 5:

The Inca are well and alive, in spirit, at Machu Picchu. With their guidance, we spend the day in sacred ceremony at Machu Picchu itself. We return to Aguas Calientes for the next two nights.

DAY 10 June 6:

While we are in Aguas Calientes, we work with the river itself letting its flow move through us. We have the rest of the day to shop and to go to the hot springs nestled in the center of the mountains, enjoying the delights of this little mountain town.

DAY 11 June 7:

In the late afternoon, we return to Cuzco for an evening of rest.

DAY 12 June 8:

We have a day to explore the ancient city of Cuzco. In the evening, we have the formal closing of the sacred ceremonies. We go out for a dinner of celebration, giving thanks and delight for the journey we have just undertaken.

DAY 13 June 9:

We return to Lima for our flight back to the USA.
