About us

Aloha!

Join us on a transformative heart-opening journey into the world of the spiritual Q'eros community in the high Andes of Peru, receive traditional Inca initiations (Hatun Karpay and Nusta Karpay) and expand your consciousness by encountering the sacred plant San Pedro/ Huachuma.

This special off-the beaten tracks programme allows you to experience a very different reality of living and viewing life and to deeply connect with Pachamama (Mother Earth), all creation and your own loving self as ONE.

We invite you to experience life in one of its purest and most energizing forms through:

* immersing yourself in the wisdom and rituals of the mystical Andean Cosmovisión;

* experiencing an authentic mind and heart opening San Pedro/ Huachuma Ceremony led by an experienced indigenous shamanic healer and his local students at a magical mountain lake above the Sacred Valley;

* traveling back in time and feeling the strength of the land of Peru as one of the most powerful energetic centres of the world by exploring the sacred Inca ruins above Pisac with breathtaking views over the Sacred Valley;

* going on enchanting but also physically challenging treks (on 3 days) across the mystical high Andes and sharing space, traditional food, invigorating stories, and heart-warming smiles with a Q´ero master and his family in their modest traditional stone houses. They live in breathtaking landscapes at above 4000 m altitude far away from roads, shops and phone networks. The daily trekking time varies between min. 2.5 h and max. 5-6 h.

* participating in ceremonies and initiations from the Inca shamanic tradition (Coca Leaf Reading, Offerings to Mother Earth, Great Initiations/ Hatun Karpay, Seven Goddesses Rites/ Nusta Karpay) led by the Q´ero master and his wife surrounded by powerful Apus (mountain spirits).

The introduction to the Hatun Karpay (Great Initiation) serves as an opening of your heart (munay) for unconditional love, opening of your third eye (yanchay) for transcendental wisdom and opening of your energetic stomach (llankay) for harmonic action. 

Through the heart softening energies of the Nusta Karpay, you awaken a deep rapport with the divine feminine, not only within yourself, but with the feminine in all of creation. You will recognize and begin to heal your true relationship and connection with Mother Earth and all living beings. 

The Q´eros ethnic group of only approximately 600 people has been largely hidden in the Andes for the past 500 years with little contact with the Peruvian Government and the Catholic Church. This allowed them to maintain their ancient spiritual knowledge as it originates directly from the Incas. As mining companies are currently threatening the habitat and cultural heritage of the Q'eros, they warmly welcome international travellers to share their spiritual wisdom and make their cause more known.  

The overall contribution for this adventurous and heart-opening 7-day journey is 790,- USD.
Please note that you also have the option to join only for the 4-day Spiritual Trek to the Q'eros (without the preceding San Pedro ceremony and Inca site visit) for 490,- USD.

Please visit the website of Moonay Mystical Journeys for more information. 

We look forward to welcoming on this very special journey. 

Con mucho amor
