Peru is believed to be one of the most spiritual places on earth, and in this program you can learn more about yourself, through meditation, ceremonial activities and rituals of the Andean world. While learning about yourself, you can also discover the fascinating beliefs of the Inca people.
A highlight of the program is a hike of meditation through the sacred mountains, by following the Inca spiritual route to Machu Picchu, an area of intense magnetism. Our guide will be a shaman (Andean priest) and our teachers in the other activities are specialised guides. Included are a ceremony of coca reading, a “Baño de Florecimiento” (purification bath) and a “Pago a la Tierra” whereby we will make offerings to create harmony with the Andean deities. We will also visit the well preserved ruins along the Inca Trail and gain further understanding of symbolism.
In order to greater understand Peruvian culture, we will study Spanish during the first week of the program at AMAUTA Sacred Valley (2 sessions per day). The teachers will put emphasis on communication, as well as teaching special vocabulary so that we have a better understanding of the theory taught by our spiritual guides in the mountains.
AMAUTA Sacred Valley is a peaceful place of retreat, perfect for spiritual reflection and relaxation. During the afternoons and the weekends we will travel to various parts of the Sacred Valley, e.g. to mystical Ollantaytambo. In Cusco we will visit inspiring Inca Ruins (e.g. Tambomachay, a site of ritual purification, and the Coricancha, the religious centre of the Andean world and the Great Temple of the Sun).
