- Full Moon Tours
- Pallpamccaro, Ollantaytambo, Peru
- May 21, 2017 - May 29, 2017 (9 days)
EXPERIENCE THE ENERGY, MYSTICISM AND CULTURE OF THE SACRED VALLEY OF PERU
MAY 21-29, 2017
Our 9-day excursion with Full Moon Tours includes: Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley (hikes to ruins, archaeological sites & villages), shamanic healing ceremonies from the Andes & Amazon, cultural immersion, yoga & meditation!
The intentions for this trip and retreat planned here are to connect you to the energy of the Andes, the wisdom from indigenous peoples- practices and beliefs, the power of the plant medicine and a space to reconnect with spirit and our ancestors.
We take the road less traveled and aim to support local Peruvian people, communities and businesses. We are looking for explorers who want real connections and not a commercialized experience. Taylor Wagner of Full Moon Tours has carefully crafted an authentic experience to bring the heart, soul, and spirit of Peru to you.
This trip uniquely integrates yoga and meditation throughout our journey. Other wellness modalities will also be available to support all aspects of your health: the physical, mental, and emotional. Imagine practicing QiGong over ancient Inca ruins. Get relief from sore hiking muscles with TRE/tension-trauma releasing exercises. Have an evening of restorative yoga in clear mountain air.
This magical retreat is a partnership with Taylor Wagner of Full Moon Tours and Tammy Hayano of Hanuman Yoga Retreat. It is a collaboration in shared values, guiding transformational experiences, and bridging cultures together.
