Intineray Day by Day:(B)= breakfast / (L)= lunch / (D)= dinner
Cost by person in Double Occupancy  US$ 3,870 Each One.  Minimum 2 people

Day 1: Arrival Lima
Upon arrival at Lima Airport, you will be met and transferred to the Miraflores District for overnight accommodation in your selected hotel.

Day 2: Lima – Pachacamac – Ceremony (B)
Breakfast at your hotel. Morning departure for a four-hour guided tour of Colonial and Modern Lima. This half-day tour includes visits to both the colonial and modern sections of this "City of Kings." Colonial sites include the lovely Plaza Mayor with its cathedral and palace and the exquisite Torre Tagle Palace, modern day seat of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In modern Lima, drive along the exclusive residential areas of Miraflores and San Isidro. Then continue to Pachacamac Ruins. Pachacamac, which translated into English means "The One who ordains the Universe", is the most ancient Andean Pilgrimage Center in America and it is located at Km.31 in the South Pan American Highway. It is the "Hatun Punku" (Great Door) that connects us with our Andean origins. At the on-site museum you can appreciate the Idol or Totem of Pachacamac, which symbolizes the masculine-feminine polarity embodied in an original piece of Lúcumo wood, considered by our ancestors as a sacred tree. We begin our pilgrimage by making a circle around the Idol to connect with the energies of Pachacamac. Then, we continue towards the Aqlla Wasi, House of the Virgins of the Sun, where we harmonize the centers of energy of the human body by using rattles and other Andean musical instruments. Afterwards, each person will find a space in the Aqlla Wasi for meditation with crystals. When the meditation has concluded, we ask permission to enter the Temple of the Sun, from where you can observe the Mama Qocha (Mother Ocean). Before going into the temple, each person receives 4 Kintus of Coca Leaf (perfect leaves). With the leaves each one will thank for all the good things received and will ask for what the person still needs by offering the leaves at the top of the Temple. The ceremony concludes with a circle to share the energy in an embrace.

Day 3: Lima – Cusco – Urubamba. (B) (L) (D)
After breakfast, transfer to Lima Airport for a morning flight to Cusco. Cusco, situated at 11,000 feet above sea level, is the oldest inhabited city in the Western Hemisphere. In Quechua, the language of the people of the Andes, Cusco means "navel of the Universe." We arrive in Cusco and transfer to the Quinsa Pacha Center in Urubamba located in the Sacred Valley with its breathtaking vistas, mountains, and Urubamba River. Urubamba, although 2,000 feet lower in altitude than Cusco, still requires time to acclimate. After lunch we rest and drink local coca tea which helps our bodies adjust to the altitude. In the late afternoon we have our first ceremony to Pachamama (Mother Earth) to request permission for the pilgrimage we are about to embark upon. This ceremony is guided by the Q'eros, a unique tribe of people revered as the most pure in their retention of ancient Inca customs, rituals and beliefs. Our time among the the Q'eros has always been a highlight of our Andean pilgrimages. Dinner and overnight at Quinsa Pacha center. While in the Sacred Valley we are lodging at Quisa Pacha Center, which was founded by our brooder Daniel Pinares to better serve the needs of people coming to this part of Peru for spiritual purposes, not just as tourists. In designing Qinsa Pacha, Daniel incorporated many Andean elements. Quisa Pacha boats 20 rooms with private bath, lovely gardens, mountain views, delicious food and a healing treatment area with herbal steam, hot tub, and optional massage therapy.

Day 4: Urubamba – Maras – Salt Pool. (B) (L) (D)
Breakfast at your hotel. Morning departure to visit the impressive salt pools formed by water emerging from a lake within the mountains of the Urubamba Valley. These pre-Inca salt pools were constructed during the Chanapata culture between c. AD 200-300 and AD 900 and have been exploited since pre-Hispanic times while conserving the same methods. They cover an area of more than twenty hectares and are set on a mountain-side with a slope of 20 degrees. Afternoon ceremony conducted by an Andean specialist. There are traditional offerings to Pachamama, Mother Earth and all the nature spirits and Andean Gods, an exchange of living energy, giving to receive, bringing in healing energies and working with many other elements. The group participates and the healer uses coca leaves and Andean foods and elements. Each person receives a personal healing. The ceremony concludes with a fire ceremony in our special ceremonial area and ends when the spirits and mountain Gods, such as Apukuna, have accepted the offering.

Day 5: Urubamba – Quechua Villages of Patacancha. (B) (L) (D)
Breakfast at your hotel. Today we visit an authentic Quechua Village of Patacanacha stopping to see and feel the way of life of the ancient Incas. The Incas were noble Quechuas. They still maintain many traditions to this day. The Quechuas largely live off the land and are always wearing their colorful ponchos. See Quechua children scamper about while women weave their family's clothes. A meaningful experience! Second ceremony in the afternoon, the healer works with sounds, ancient Peruvian instruments and modern instruments from the world over. It takes about an hour and a half where the group sits in meditation to absorb the healing energies and create a balance and harmony in both our bodies and in the world, all needed greatly at this time. The healers are authentic practitioners, dedicated to harmony and healing the planet.

Day 6: Urubamba – Ollantaytambo – Machupicchu. (B) (L)
We travel by train from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu whose buildings and terraces spill over a ridge hundreds of meters above the rushing Urubamba river. We arrive in Aquas Calientes, the village at the base of mountain below Machu Picchu, and check into the Machu Picchu Inti Inn. After a light lunch, a bus takes us on the last leg up the mountain along a dramatic switchback road and as we crest the final hill, a majestic vista unfolds. Machu Picchu's designers harmonized architecture and sacred geography, framing views of nearby mountains in doorways and windows and carving some stones to echo the mountains' shapes. Machu Picchu is the Tibet of the Americas and the most prized spiritual center of the Incas. The afternoon includes exploration and orientation of Machu Picchu. Special arrangements are made to remain in the site after hours and into the night, a time which many believe to be the most powerful hours. We enjoin together in shamanic ceremonies which honor this sacred place and invokes the protection and guidance of the surrounding mountain spirits. There will be the opportunity here at Machu Picchu to work again with the sacred plant of San Pedro. Overnight at Qilla Inn or Presidente.

Day 7: Machu Picchu. (B) (L)
You have the option of rising early to explore Machu Picchu in the morning hours. A climb to the top of Huayna Picchu gives you a glorious view of the entire archeological site. Another hike brings you to the Temple of the Moon located on the backside of Huayna Picchu. These hikes can be quite challenging and arduous, especially if you live at sea-level. If you prefer to be less active, you can take a leisure walk to the Intipunko (Gate of the Sun) or simply wander around the site at your own pace, letting your own intuition draw to you specific temples and altars throughout Machu Picchu. In the afternoon we gather in Aquas Calientes with our friend and local shaman, Hebert, for a healing meditation working with sound created by singing bowls. In the evening we have reserved just for our group, the local natural hot springs where we continue today's theme of sound working with bells. Overnight at Qilla Inn or Presidente.

Day 8: Machupicchu – Cusco. (B) (L)
Breakfast in the hotel. In the morning, rest day at leisure, walking around to hot spring villages continue with connection and spiritual work. In the afternoon, back to Cusco by train arrival and transfer to your selected hotel.

Day 9: Cusco – Puerto Maldonado connecting with Nature and Yourself. (B) (L) (D)
Breakfast at your hotel. Flight to Puerto Maldonado. Upon arrival, reception and transfer to the Tambopata river port in Puerto Maldonado. Puerto Maldonado is situated at the confluence of the mighty Madre de Dios and Tambopata Rivers and is a bustling, booming tropical frontier town. Its principal activities are gold mining, Brazil nut collecting, timber extraction, agriculture and eco-tourism. After a brief survey of the town we will depart on the 2 hour boat trip by motorized canoe to Posada Amazonas. Depending on the arrival time of the plane, we will have a boxed lunch aboard the boats or have lunch upon arrival at Posada Amazonas. During our voyage and as we enter the unspoiled forest, we may see bird species typical of the river or forest edge such as: Black Skimmer, Pied Lapwing, Capped Heron, Jabiru Stork, Roadside Hawk and several species of Kingfishers, Swallows and Flycatchers. When we arrive at Posada Amazonas we will unpack and unwind. We will receive a short orientation and a complete briefing of the lodge and the Ese'eja Eco-tourism Project before our afternoon activity. At 3:30, we will start our ecology walk, passing through different types of forest, until we get to a giant Ceiba tree. The energy of this centuries-old living being makes it a perfect point for our first reunion. Here we will have the chance of awakening our dormant senses and blocked chakras, using the forest energy flow, as well as our own; thus becoming one with nature. We will be back at the lodge for dinner. We will show a video about the forest of Tambopata after dinner.

Day 10: Posada Amazonas connecting with Water, Air and Universe. (B) (L) (D)
Breakfast at the lodge. We will be up at dawn for a visit to the Tres Chimbadas Oxbow Lake. After an early breakfast we depart, 15 minutes from Posada Amazonas by boat and a 30 minute walk will take us to the lake shore. From here we take a long, easy canoe ride around it. We will look for giant river otters, turtles, hoatzin and wading birds. The giant river otters that are seen in Tres Chimbadas belong to a resident family of nine. The quietness and serenity of the still water will help us listen to the sound of this natural element. As soon as we return to the lodge, we will have a meeting before lunch. Here we will gather for meditation and working our group corporal, mental and spiritual development, before embarking on our afternoon outing. In the afternoon we will have an Ethno-botanical walk. In this activity, we will hike the trails around Posada Amazonas with an Ese´eja native, who will explain to us the everyday uses of forest medicine, construction methods, food and fiber. This walk ends in a 35meter tall observation tower. When we get to the top of the tower, we will be able to enjoy a great view, while capturing, with our chakras already open, the rays of the sun, the wind and the cosmic energy. We return to the lodge for dinner. (B,L,D)

Day 11: Posada Amazonas connecting with Fires and Earth. (B) (L) (D)
Breakfast at the lodge. Before breakfast (5:00 am) we will visit a parrot clay lick. This clay lick is a ten minute walk from the lodge, next to the river. Some of the large Macaws, like the red and green Macaw and larger parrots, such as the mealy and yellow-crowned Amazons visit this lick, as well as the smaller parrots and parakeets. We can have good viewings of these wonderful birds from the hidden areas we have constructed next to this lick. We will also have a great opportunity to spot other spectacular wildlife, active at this time of the day, like scarlet or blue and gold Macaws and a great deal of other birds. We will have breakfast as soon as we get back (7:00 am). After breakfast, we will visit a native slash and burn farm. Slash and burn agriculture systems are often thought of as wasteful because the fields are burnt, cultivated for a few years and then abandoned. Many resident studies, however, have shown that this is far from the truth. The secret of their success is mixed planting in small patches, the use of a mixture of herbaceous and woody crops and the genetic diversity of their crops so that the crops are not decimated by disease and pests spreading through monocultures. During our visit, we will be able to understand why the Ese´eja cultivation system is sustainable over the long term. This activity is probably the most participative of them all, because we will gather some of the products from this farm with the family that tends to it and prepare our lunch on the spot. In the afternoon, we will walk with the farm tenders, from whom we will learn about medicinal plants, while collecting some. We will then gather again, this time around a fire, where we will drink herbal teas and thank mother earth for its fruits. In this meditation stage, we will flow energy from the fire. In our last meeting (5:30 pm) we will thank the supreme being for creation and our host family for their hospitality. We will return to Posada Amazonas for dinner and overnight. Optional night walk.

Day 12: Posada Amazonas – Lima – Home. (B)
Breakfast at the lodge. Early morning return by boat to Puerto Maldonado and the airport for your flight to Lima and then your connecting flight home.
