"Breathe in the sacred wisdom of the ages. Meditate in temples thousands of years old. Participate in life-changing ancient ceremonies and experience the magnificence of your own being. Picture yourself breathing the mystical air at the heights of the Andes Mountains. Your spirit will soar as you experience one of the most beautiful and sacred lands on earth. Walk in the footsteps of the ancient Incas. The ancestors of the Andean people still live in this precious "Paradise in the Sun," where the heart of the masters still reigns.
Once again, the world has begun to recognize the Andes as one of the greatest cultural and spiritual centers of the planet; the doors to new dimensions of awareness are opening to us, and we are now unearthing and reviving ancient, hidden knowledge, due to the beginning of the new, tenth Pachakuti, or cosmic cycle. Andean history is divided into segments of 1000 years, with a transformational era in the middle, every 500 years.
We recently passed one of these historical transitions in 1992. The ANDEAN PEOPLE call this Pachakuti "turning of the times". Since long ago the Andean culture zealously guarded their secrets. Now they are willing to share this ancient knowledge. Are you ready to experience your true nature? Now is the time to participate in sacred ceremonies from an ancient, highly advanced civilization."
Our intent throughout this whole journey is to reawaken to who we really are,
and again come into alignment with the "Master Path". Our attitude
will be one of reverence and honoring of all that is sacred. We will have many
opportunities for personal reflection and meditation.
I hope you will join us on this, perhaps once in life time opportunity to
experience Peru like few people ever have, while reawakening to your true nature
and potential as divine beings on this beautiful Space Ship Earth.
About Our Spiritual Guide Mallku
Sensitive Artist and a Promoter of Andean Culture- collaborated during the 1980's as a co-editor of books on Natural Medicine. In 1997 he presented his book "Camino Iniciático Inka, el Despertar del Puma" (Inka Initiation Path –the Awakening of the Puma), in which he revealed his expertise in understanding the Esoteric Knowledge within Andean Archaeo-astronomy. In 1999 he paid tribute to the Sacred City of Machu Picchu in his book "Eternamente Machu Picchu, Ciudad de Peregrinos" (Machu Picchu Forever, City of Pilgrims). His extensive research has earned him well-deserved recognition and acknowledgements, including the publishing of his books in Poland and Hungary. MALLKU is an international lecturer and teaches about the Ancient Culture of the Andes, promoting a Shamanic experience as one of the Paths of Liberation for the present generation.
In his current book "Inka Power Places, Solar Initiations" he reveals important secrets of the Initiation Knowledge of the Amauta Sages, which were expressed in their Temples, Palaces and Cities as testimony for all time. We are proud to be part of a country so marvelous in all aspects, natural and human.
The cultures of the Inkas and their predecessors have left us evidence of their considerable technological, social and spiritual achievements. It has not been possible to erase the soul of these Andean peoples and at every step we find examples of a glorious past. Time has been the faithful witness of those great men who have not really left but are still here as guides just like the stars, Moon, Sun, earth, valleys and mountains.
Much has been said about the Andes; but from outside, never from within, from the essence. Some thinkers and teachers of the world have tried to understand the spirituality of the Andes, but nearly always in an intellectual and material context.
Several decades ago certain intellectuals supposed that the Andes had no electro-magnetic charge of its own, thus giving us to understand that there had been a lack of spirituality and of ontological development of being in this part of the world. They announced that the "electromagnetic flow" found in the mountains of the Himalayas had been transferred to the Andes of America in a certain year and that Peru and Bolivia were the principal beneficiaries. Perhaps these men wanted to stimulate interest in the study of this Land of Pachamama, but their assumption with respect to these changes is in serious error and shows a lack of respect for all that is part of the millennial tradition of the Children of the Sun.

A personal message from Steffan, your program coordinator.....
— Why this trip might be just what you need in your life right now —
Much has happened both personally and globally since I offered the first Shamanic Journey to Peru in 2005. Peru's power places and sacred temples, the shamanic plant teachers, our facilitators and the participants of our programs have taught me so much. I am deeply grateful for the growth that has come my way.
The elliptical rotation of the Earth's poles, is again moving toward the galactic center and signifies the cyclical awakening of human consciousness and the movement toward a new golden Age. The world as a whole with all of its people is evolving right before our eyes. This is really exciting and it's truly a gift to be alive in these remarkable times. Because we are evolving so fast, many humans on the planet feel the so called 'Quickening' that is taking place. On an individual level and as a collective we are beginning to manifest our thoughts hundreds of times faster than even ten years ago. Because we are beginning to manifest so quickly now, it is becoming more critical that our thoughts and actions are governed by our hearts.
In these times of change, those of us that are on the conscious evolutionary path, need all the support that we can get to help us on our journey to Unity Consciousness. Now is the time to walk the path of sweetness; the path of balance between the head and the heart. This notion of reaching and maintaining a balance between the intellect and the heart is at the core of what Mallku calls the Master Path.
The ancient Inca possessed this knowledge. It was evident in how they built and managed their temples and cities and in their highly advanced spiritual cosmology and understanding of the stars. Quality of life was highly valued by the Inca and was intrinsically connected with many aspects of their existence. Quality of life is part of being in balance.
As we visit some of these magical power places and temples in Peru, we will have the opportunity to 'Tune Into' and experience how this ancient civilization viewed their relationship with Spirit and with mother earth; the Divine Male and the Divine Female. Our experiences in the Andes and with each other will inspire a renewed or increased commitment to our spiritual path, along with a deeper understanding of what it means to live in balance and with the knowing that we are all ONE.
Below are two YouTube video's where Mallku addresses the 'Master Path'.
The first video on the left, I recorded on Lake Titicaca in March of 2009.
