About This Event

Take a pilgrimage of a life time where you will experience the most powerful sacred sites, temples, portals and archaeological 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 separation, 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.”

      Peru heart activation

    All the following is from personal experience.This journey opens the door to consciousness faster than all the methods I have stepped into, & I have done a lot of personal development & spiritual work. It's remarkably loving in the way it communicates with your being on a soul & cellular level & it's a load of fun. It's a journey/holiday, inside & out. It puts your entire life into perspective experientially without getting bogged down into the details of the rational mind.The shamans & Jaimie Amadio provide all that is required, you are in good hands & when you return home , it's blessings continue. The only barrier is the doing, as Yoda said, "Do, there is no Try". Opening the door to consciousness really doesn't get any easier than this & the Shamans are authentically trained from ancestral lineage including one of the most powerful shamans in Peru today. I'm trying to get all my family to do it . Most of us say YES!, but rarely dive in, due to issues like time & money. It's only 3weeks, you integrate it, & so it stays with you for a life time & the support continues in more ways than one could ever imagine. Book it, pay it & Go for it!, I'm so grateful that my family members who did it are now on the same page of reality as myself. I am available to share & answer any questions people may have. I do suggest that people at least read about levels of consciousness to gain some understanding about how illusion & reality effect our lives dramatically & how we can raise to other levels as does the Peru Heart Activation Journey which transforms us fast from the inside out , we become free of fears that held us back without drawn out discourses & long term therapies which are all good, but not with immediate & long lasting results as this.If you want to experience your life as it really is & know your purpose & have a fun thrilled adventure, don't think about it,"just do it"....., STOP thinking & start experiencing. "Feelings are the language of the Soul".:-) :-) :-) !!!!!!!!!!
