SACRED JOURNEY TO THE SACRED POWER PLACES OF CUSCO
(December 9 to 21, 2017)

In our journey we will come to listen to the ancient wisdom of the Andes. The sacred connection to ‘All that IS’ happens within our hearts. Peru places in you the faith to understand this ancient knowledge, as we travel high through the mountains. The wisdom of the ancients will help you open that understanding.
Visit sacred sites daily.
Sacred gratitude ceremonies.
Many forms of Peruvian life.
Free time to explore, shop and rest.

Some things to know about your retreat.
Our guides are Native Peruvians who are rich in knowledge and culture. They are very proud to share their heritage, ancient culture and traditions with you to cherish within your hearts, forever.

This Sacred Journey will require you to be of moderate fitness. The streets are mostly cobblestone, mountain hiking is of mixed terrain and can be quite steep at times. There are also lots of steps especially near the major temples. The air is also thinner.

Based in earlier retreat experiences, retreat goers often request more free time for exploration. This guided Peru retreat gives a great balance of both, in true Peruvian style.

All you need to do is show up. You can relax knowing that your every need is taken care of. You are in good hands all the way around.

This reciprocity is an elemental part of Peruvian culture. From previous experiences your immersion with these children play a critical role in the understanding of this ancient culture. What seems to start off as a humanitarian experience, ends with bouts of laughter, joy and warm hearts. These children will have much to teach you about what values you place in different areas of your life.
Here we will celebrate Christmas through Ayni with the students at two schools facing various hardships. We will help distribute a cup of hot chocolate, sweet bread and a little gift.
