Magic in the Andes

Because this is the rare, precious opportunity you've been waiting for! Unlike other tours to Peru, you will experience sacred sites and power vortexes intimately and profoundly. This is not just a tour, but a spiritual journey.
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 Inkas. 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 calls 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.

Lake Titikaka and the House of the Golden Sun Disc. Peru is a land steeped in ancient wisdom that is vital for our planet during these transitional times. Life in the Inkan empire was measured by a thousand year cosmic cycle called an Inti, which means 'Sun'. This thousand year cycle was then divided into halves, each of which was referred to as a Pachakuti ("he who transform the earth"). The cosmovision of the Andean world is the conception of duality that is in permanent opposition, but complementary, like the principle of ying/yang that expresses this opposition. This same principle of duality applies to each Pachakuti. However, Pachakuti also refers to the transitional time that divided each Pachakuti and this is characterized as a time of great changes.
During the five hundred years of the eighth Pachakuti, Pachacuteq, the greatest spiritual leader of the Inkas and the builder of Machu Picchu ruled. This was a time of light when the Inka Empire flourished and there was expansion and good fortune.
The ninth Pachakuti, on the opposite side of the duality, brought with it the five hundred years of darkness when the Spanish invaded the Andes. We are now entering the tenth Pachakuti, which the Andean people refer to as the returning of Pachacuteq, the returning of the Light. This is the time when the etheric crystal cities of the fourth dimension such as the lost golden city of Paititi and the eternal etheric city under lake Titikaka will again be available to us.
One of the Solar Discs in the Inka time that was at Cusco, and placed in the Qorikancha, the main Temple of the Sun, stayed there until the coming of the Spanish. At that time, it was returned to Lake Titikaka and placed in the Eternal Etheric City inside the Lake. In the legend of their origin, this is the place from where the first Inkas, Manku Qhapak and Mama Oqllo, entered the Earth.

This morning we cross the highest navigable lake in the world to the island of Amantani. The spiritual leader of the community will led us in a POWER OFFERING for Pachamama. This night we share with the locals and stay in their homes. In the evening, we will have a special meditation ceremony where we will be introduced to the Sacred Fire.
Amantani Island is located 38 km from the city of Puno, 3,810 meters above sea level, 3,5 hours by motorboat. Amantani is a beautiful island with warm and hospital inhabitants. Its greatest attraction is based on the social, ethnic and archaeological aspects. Among its most important and well-known places are the temples of Pachatata and Pachamama dedicated to the cult of the earth and heaven. From there on you can have an excellent panoramic view of the lake, as well as a view of the oriental mountain range and the Bolivian side with its mountain range.
Lake Titikaka Legend: Titikaka ("Rock of the Puma") was, according to Andean legend, the birthplace of civilization. Wiraqocha, the creator, brought light into a dark world by directing the Sun, Moon and stars to rise up out of the lake and take their place in the sky. With time the Sun and Moon had children who also rose from the depths of the lake. These new people were sent out from Titikaka to the four corners of the earth, with Manku Qhapac and his sister Mama Oqllo and their family clan being sent off to inhabit the Cusco region. Inka legend believed that Manku was the first Inka and a direct descendent from the Sun.

Early in the morning we ascend to the temples of Pachatata and Pachamama where we present our offering to Pachamama and to life. After some lunch we boat back to the continent and will have our transportation to Puno and have a free afternoon.
