About us

Take a pilgrimage of a life time where you will experience the most powerful sacred sites, temples, portals and archeological secrets that South America has to offer.

Be guided by local Andean Pacos, also known as medicine men or shamans, who work with unconditional love and divine masculine energy.

Experience the profound yet gentle heart opening of the Grandfather medicine, Wachuma (also known as San Pedro), where the veils between the worlds will disappear.

Wachuma has been used for more than 3,000 years in Peru, and is a medicine of the heart that connects us deeply to ourselves, each other and pachamama, removing the ego and giving us the direct experience of no seperation, and a deeply profound heart opening that will assist in seeing through veils of illusion.

Jaime will be guiding you through a deep transformational journey of your inner wilderness, while the Pacos will guide us through the mountains, offering teachings on the Andean way of life and cosmology.

“There is a great longing within each of us. We long to discover the secrets and mysteries of our individual lives, to find our unique way of belonging to this world, to recover the never-before- seen treasure we were born to bring to our communities. To carry this treasure to others is half of our spiritual longing.  The other half is to experience our oneness with the universe, with all of creation.”
