Sacred Equinox Journey To Peru:
Machu Picchu & The Sacred Valley
September 12-25, 2013
Don't wait another minute to book your reservation for this rare opportunity to visit one of the world's most sacred destinations -- during the exact time when it's natural frequencies are at their highest -- and experience authentic ceremonies led by Andean shamen. You'll explore Machu Picchu - the "Lost City of the Incas" - for two days during the Equinox Portal, and visit numerous other sacred sites including the Temple of the Sun and the famous Circles of Moray.
This is such an important time in Incan cosmology. Many of the world's spiritual leaders, as well as indigenous teachers, acknowledge that the energy of the planet started to shift in 1992 from the masculine energies of Tibet to the feminine energies of Peru, and more specifically, to Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
According to the Inca calendar, time is divided into 1000 year cycles and subdivided into 500 year periods of light and darkness, each of which is known as a "Pachakuti". A 500 year period of darkness began in the year 1492 and ended in 1992, when the Earth's energies began to shift back toward a cycle of light. We are now at the threshold of the tenth Pachakuti, which the local people refer to as the returning of Pachkuteq, or "the returning of the Light".
This cycle is about returning to the essence of the cosmos and the feminine aspect of the planet. According to Inca prophecy now is the time when the Condor (symbolizing the cultures of South America) will fly with the Eagle (symbolizing the cultures of North and Central America), ushering in an age of peace and love that is to last a thousand years. Are you ready to do your part to help heal the planet? Peru is one of the best places on Earth to open your heart to the transformational energies that are now sweeping the planet.

Peru Trip Leaders:
Anahata Ananada combines the compassionate strength of an angel with the wise strength of a Shaman. She has trained with gifted Shamans, energy healers and spiritual teachers from around the world in order to artfully integrate techniques for physical cleansing, emotional clearing, energy healing, meditation and sacred cermony.
Anahata has lead over 50 rejuevenation retreats to sacred destinations around the globe and traveled to temples in such far away places as Egypt, India, China, Japan, Bali, and Central America. This will be her sixth journey to Peru. It was during her first visit there that she met Jorge Luis Delgado on the shores of Lake Titicaca, and they immediately formed a kindred bond of eternal friendship.
Jorge Luis Delgado is an indigenous Inca with a brilliant mind, who is able to express the knowledge and experiences of his spiritual heritage in practical terms that are as alive and viable in today’s modern cities, as they were in the ancient mountaintop city of Machu Picchu.
He received his early training from the Kallawaya shamans of the Lake Titicaca region, and from the Qero elders of Cusco, who are the last remaining tribal descendants of the Inca. Author of "Andean Awakening: an Inca Guiide To Mystical Peru" and the forthcoming book "Pachacuti: Return To Joy", Jorge is recognized worldwide as an authority on Inca tradition and spirituality. A "chacaruna" (bridge person) who assists others to cross from one state of consciousness to another, Jorge is fluent in both Spanish and English, as well as three indigenous languages.
Together this spiritual dream team will masterfully guide you through the sacred landscape of Peru to new levels of conscious awareness, opening your heart in powerful ceremonies so that you may remember who you truly are, reconnect with Mother Earth, and commit to the fulfillment of your highest purpose.
