A Mystical Journey in Peru
During this journey in Peru in september 2022, the Paqos will help you find what is important in your life and give you perspectives on your Destination. During this two week retreat you will visit several Hot Spots with a positive and powerful energy. Places in Cusco, Puno and the Sacred Valley of the Inca’s that are visited since ancient times by the paqos because of their special energy that is emitted. A select group of paqos at the highest level of spiritual connection with the Cosmos and Mother Earth, the so called Pampamesayoks, will lead your way and at these special places you will participate in meditations and sessions, allowing you to open up on your inner power and really find the Essence of Who You Are. It’s a spiritual and magical Journey into your Soul and brings you closer to your true nature. Furthermore during these two weeks of soul searching and inner growth we will connect with Mother Earth, the Cosmos and the Sacred Mountains of the Inca’s. It's a unique Journey set in the midst of the magical and beautiful Andes Mountains and what the Ancient Incas considered as the Center of the World.

On the first day you will arrive at the city of Cusco which is located at 3600 meter above sea level. A person of our agency will wait for you at the airport and bring you to your hostel in the Sacred Valley. Because of the altitude we will go right away to the lower Sacred Valley (2870 m) and take things slowly today and start with a ‘Despacho' ceremony at night. The rest of the day you are free to acclimatize.

Today we will visit The ruins of Pisac, which is also located in the Sacred Valley. Pisac is often called Little Machu Picchu, because like Machu Picchu it is situated on top of a mountain overlooking the valley below and you get a good feel of how the Incas built their terraces. This is a tour with a guide and of course our friends the Paqos will come along as well. After the guided tour at the ruins we will go down and visit the local Market of Pisac where a lot of souvenirs are sold but also locally produced products are traded between the people of the area. We will then continue to Cusco and on the way stop at the Animal Sanctuary Cochawasi

It also contains a small cave inside which there are petroglyphs. In the center, a huge rock with a semicircular crescent carving dedicated to Quilla, the goddess Luna.
