Shamanic Mysticism, Ayahuasca and Yoga
November 25 - December 6, 2017
The Living Project has one mission – we want you to have a travel experience that awakens your soul and changes your life. And, our incredible trip to the Sacred Valley of Peru and legendary Machu Picchu is no different.
We chose Peru because it is considered to be a major energetic and spiritual ‘vortex’ on this planet; home to one of the earth’s seven chakras.
We will be working with Peruvian Shamans and sacred plant medicines – Ayahuasca and San Pedro. We will explore some of the most spiritually rich locations in the world, and cap off our retreat with a tour of one of the new seven wonders of the world, Macchu Picchu.
Our time in Peru is designed to be a deep dive into ourselves, into our pasts and our futures. The sacred medicines and our time together will help to introduce you to spirit allies and forces, remove obstacles that are in the way of our greater expression and potential, retrieve lost soul parts or vital essence, and merge with the loving inter-connectivity and healing properties of nature, the elements, psyche, and spirit.
And we will have a blast doing it.
Mornings will begin with meditation class led by Jonathan and open-level yoga practice with Domenic. In some of the afternoons and evenings (when we are not in ceremony with plant medicine), we will meet in sacred circle with Jonathan to delve into the world of Shamanic mysticism or Domenic will teach a second yoga class.
On this retreat there will be three Ayahuasca ceremonies, a San Pedro ceremony with purifying Chulla Chaka (sweat lodge), and Despacho or traditional Peruvian offering ceremony to the earth. There will also be a day-long excursion to local ruins that includes a trek with San Pedro medicine. These events will be facilitated by local and trusted Peruvian shamans that we and our venue, Source Peru, have hand-picked for their excellence, integrity and knowledge.
Local guides will take us on unforgettable day trips to the famous Pisaq market and ruins, the ruins of Ollantaytambo, the ancient Incan Salt Pans, and the Andean terraces of Moray. We will explore the traditional village of Maras, and rejuvenate in the hot-springs of Aguas Calientes. We are not going to leave a stone un-turned as we take in the totality of this incredible and holy place.
For the last two days, we will journey by train and stay overnight in Aguas Calientes. This is the heart of Machu Picchu, one of the most beguiling places you will ever experience. We will be taken on a guided tour of the breath-taking ‘ancient city in the clouds’.
Our final destination will in Cusco, so that the beginning of your travel home the next day is an easy and restful one.
The Living Project’s trip to Peru will be an absolutely transformative journey to a magical and sacred land; a place steeped in tradition, spirit, wisdom, and mystery.
This is an initiation into higher consciousness and of deep healing, and we promise a once in a lifetime adventure that you will never forget.
