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 25:

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

DAY 2 May 26:

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.

DAY 3 May 27:

Today, in the morning, we go to Lago Apu Victor, a lake deep in the jungle. As we walk through the jungle, we see the wonders of the rain forest, always new, always ancient, always unique. In the afternoon, we take a boat ride to a secluded place that branches off the main river. As we walk in the jungle, we discover the beauty and magic of The Briolo. 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 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 28:

After breakfast, we have the morning to rest, simply enjoying the beauty and vital serenity in this wild sacred place and to reflect on what the jungle is teaching us and what we are discovering within ourselves. In the afternoon, we go to the Island of the Monkeys where generations of monkeys of various types live. In our final evening here in the jungle, we enter in Sacred Ceremony. Our Intent is of deep thanks to those of the jungle who have helped us to awaken the jungle within each of us. We perceive where the seeds of the jungle have taken root within us.

DAY 5 May 29:

In the morning, 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 meet the Q’ero, the pureblood descendants of the ancient Inca and who will be with us as we go to the sacred places. 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. Qenko is a labyrinth that is carved inside and on the outside. It is said that this was a place of The Puma. 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 May 30:

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. During the day, we visit the temple and the local markets. In the evening, we go into the temple where, in deep sacred ceremony, initiations long forgotten or left unfinished can be brought to completion. We stay with a local family overnight.

DAY 7 May 31:

From Cuzco, we go to Pisaq, Moray, and then to Ollantaytambo. All of these are ancient sacred places. We travel in the Huambutio Valley to Urubamba to Pisaq, The Temple of The Falcon, where we are guided to fly higher than we think we can. The markets of Pisaq are renown throughout The Sacred Valley and where we will have lunch. From Pisaq, we go to Moray, wombs of Pachamama. We stay in a hotel in Ollantaytambo for two nights.

DAY 8 June 1:

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. When we return to Ollantaytambo, we can go to The Temple of the Winds that overlooks the town. Here we are guided by The Winds, showing us where we are meant to go.

DAY 9 June 2:

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. At the river, in sacred ceremony with the river, we merge with the waters. Having Worked with this river many times, the Urubamba River flows through you, bringing to the surface much that you did not know was within you.

DAY 10 June 3:

Today, we go to Machu Picchu known as The Rainbow City. The Inca are well and alive, in spirit, at Machu Picchu. With their guidance, we spend the afternoon in sacred ceremony at Machu Picchu itself. We return to Aguas Calientes for the night.

DAY 12 June 5:

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