Peru is believed to be one of the most spiritual places on earth, and in this program you can learn more about yourself, through meditation, ceremonial activities and rituals of the Andean world. While learning about yourself, you can also discover the fascinating beliefs of the Inca people.
A highlight of the program is a hike of meditation through the sacred mountains, following the Inca spiritual route to Machu Picchu, an area of intense magnetism. Our guide will be a shaman (Andean priest) and our teachers in the other activities are specialised guides. Included are a ceremony of coca reading, and a "Pago a la Tierra" whereby we will make offerings to create harmony with the Andean deities.
In order to greater understand Peruvian culture, we will study Spanish during the first week of the program at Sacred Valley, a peaceful place of retreat, perfect for spiritual reflection and relaxation. During the afternoons and the weekends we will travel to various parts of the Sacred Valley and Cusco.
This course has fixed starting dates, which coincide with the equinoxes and solstices (see pricelist). A high beginner level of Spanish is a requirement, and you should have reasonable physical condition.
