Camino Pachamama

Practice ancient shamanic healing at the Andean places of power and awake the shaman in you

e96ef91d0bfc42e0bba2f5883d7f3a4e

Overview

From the Sacred Valley via Cusco up to Lake Titicaca (optional), we experience Andean cosmology in all its beauty. One of the many highlights is the hike on the legendary Inca Trail, where we reach the miraculous city of Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate. Powerful healers stand by us in these magical places and lead us to convey these breathtaking experiences through ancient rites - against the magnificent backdrop of the snowy high Andean peaks. With their guidance, we open our hearts to see the Creator in us, to bring the felt power of these places into our homes, into our lives. The trip is ideal for carriers of shamanic medicine who find their way directly to the source and benefit from it sustainably. Newcomers have the unique opportunity to plant new seeds of Munay in their essence with a fresh beginner's spirit.

Schedule

Upon arrival (around 5pm) your spiritual guide Angel will welcome you with open arms. You will head towards the lower altitudes, warmer climate and peaceful environment of the Sacred Valley. The next few days you will stay at a beautiful retreat center in San Salvador, located in the high Andes Mountains. You will participate in an Andean Blessing Ceremony to Pachamama (Mother Earth) performed by an Andean Priest. This ceremony invokes the help and energy of the Apus (Mountains) and Pachamama for the health, wellbeing and happiness of each participant. The rest of the day you have time to relax and get used to the high altitude.

----------

Bei deiner Ankunft (gegen 17:00 Uhr) wird dich dein spiritueller Führer Angel mit offenen Armen empfangen. Gemeinsam brechen wir auf in die niedrigeren Höhen, in das wärmere Klima und die friedliche Umgebung des berühmten "Heiligen Tals". Die nächsten Tage verbringst du in einem wunderschönen Retreatzentrum in San Salvador, das in den hohen Anden liegt. Du wirst an einer Anden-Segenszeremonie für Pachamama (Mutter Erde) teilnehmen, die von einem Andenpriester durchgeführt wird. Diese Zeremonie ruft die Hilfe und Energie der Apus (Berge) und Pachamama für die Gesundheit, das Wohlbefinden und das Glück auf. Den Rest des Tages hast du Zeit, dich zu entspannen und dich an die Höhenlage zu gewöhnen.

To prepare your mind and spirit for this spiritual retreat, we recommend you to do any discipline familiar to you from your own faith, such as meditation, prayer, and yoga. If you do not have a specific practice, you can send your intentions and wishes instead to all creatures in the morning and at night. Getting in the right mindset can help you to embrace your spiritual connection during this sacred trek. You can have the best shamans in the universe (Christ, Buddha, Krishna,) conducting ceremonies for you, but if your heart does not want to change nothing will happen. Only you have the power to change your destiny. Your own heart is in fact the best shaman for yourself in this universe. The best attitude is one of positivity; the right attitude includes honesty, love, patience, humility, respect, courage and a strong mental and spiritual determination. Approaching with these values will result in a fruitful experience. When you pray do not ask for miracles to mysteriously occur. Instead, ask for opportunities to create miracles with your own hands.

Flying to Cusco can be tricky because delays often occur and due to the special conditions at the airport of Cusco, it is not uncommon for flights to be cancelled.
