Discover yourself on a sacred, spiritual journey

Our vision

Be the number one holistic and spiritual travel center Cusco, based on programs that integrate spiritual, mental, emotional and physical healing methods. Make a change in the world & help people achieve spiritual enlightenment.

We are committed to the universal code of “Sumac Kausay” which refers to a harmonious collective wellbeing and comes from the Andes and Amazon cultures. It is a way of living in harmony within communities, ourselves, and most importantly, the cosmos, nature and all existence. 

Sumac Kausay is the path of life, where everybody understands the deep meaning of living well and internalizes that the detriment of all beings is the deterioration of the whole. This is why we make it our mission to coordinate our actions and travel experiences in a human, respectful, sustainable and collective way.

Angel: Founder & Retreat Manager

Since childhood, my father influenced me to know and pass on the knowledge of our ancestral cultures, the essence of our Andean ceremonies and the benefits of Amazonian medicine. Travel and Healing was born from that same desire to share traditional knowledge, traveling to energetic places, enjoying the beautiful destinations offered by our country.

I was born in Germany and always loved traveling, exploring the world and learning from other countries. When I visited Peru for the first time, I immediately fell in love with this beautiful country, its vibrant culture and fascinating nature. That’s why I decided to move to the Inca capital of Cusco and became part of the Travel and Healing family with the desire to make a change in the world.

Our Maestros (Shamanic Healers)

Maestro Danilo: San Pedro Master

Maestro Danilo: San Pedro Master

My grandfather was the one who taught me this ancestral wisdom. One day I got very sick because the left side of my body was dead, so I went to the hospital, but nobody could help me. My wife found out that in one moment of my life I was hit by lightning that made me get very sick. I was able to completely heal myself, since then I have healed many people with my personal experience.

Maestro Alejandro: Shamanic Healer

Maestro Alejandro: Shamanic Healer

I have over 50 years of experience as a Paqo (teacher). My ancestors were shamans as well and have been passing their wisdom to the next generation. Since my father passed away, I have the mission to maintain the ancestral knowledge of my lineage. My ancestors have a unique healing method based on the knowledge of energy flow and prayers with stones of wisdom.

Our social responsibility

We believe in our Inca ancestors’ profound wisdom – reciprocation. Every journey paid by our travelers, we pay it forward by donating 12% of what we earned to our friends from Human Actions, a foundation which is helping the Andean children in poverty to access to better education; empowering the elders to become teachers for transcending ancient wisdom; fostering stray dogs in a well-equipped shelter. 

Our team has developed different social programs and welcomes volunteers from the world to become part of it. We also support the local association Sonqo Heart For Others with their reforestation project in Pucallpa. You can decide which project you want to support with your Travel and Healing journey! Just leave us a message after your booking and we will do the rest for you.

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.”
