About This Event

Aloha amigas y amigos ✮

Join us on a transformative heart-opening journey into the world of the spiritual Q'eros community in the high Andes of Peru and receive traditional Inca initiations (Hatun Karpay and Nusta Karpay). 

We offer 

* an authentic and very special experience completely off the beaten tracks and far away from roads, phone networks, shops and other travellers.

*an unforgettable spiritual adventure and enchanting (but also physically challenging) treks in a breathtaking mountain environment in the mystical Andes at almost 5000 m altitude. 

*receiving ancient initiations dating back to Inca times and exchanging spiritual insights, invigorating stories, and heart-enlightening smiles with the remote indigenous Q'eros nation living above 4000 m in the majestic Andes of Peru.

*experiencing a very different reality of living life and viewing life.

Living in five tiny and remote modest stone house villages in the breathtaking Peruvian Andes, the Q´eros community of approximately 600 people and ca. 6000 llamas and alpacas has been largely hidden & isolated for the past 500 years. They have had only very limited and rare contacts with the Peruvian government or the church, which allowed them to maintain an ancient spiritual knowledge which originates directly from the Incas. Q`ero actually means Sacred Glass which was formerly used in rituals and signifies the recipient of Wisdom.

Interacting with the Q’eros and participating in their traditional ceremonies and pure way of life is a very inspirational experience. You will view and experience Pachamama (Mother Earth) with the eyes and hearts of the Q’eros and become more aware of our relationships with each other and with our planet.

During your visit you will have the special opportunity to participate in the Q´eros devotional practices to Pachamama and undergo ancient initiations such as the Hatun Karpay (Great Initiations) and Nusta Karpay (Seven Goddesses Initiation) which have been practiced only by the Q´eros since the Inca Empire.

The Great Initiations (Hatun Karpay) are two hours long sessions that involve: a ceremony of opening of the heart (munay) for unconditional love, the opening of the third eye (yanchay) for transcendental wisdom and the opening of the energetic stomach (llankay) for harmonic action.

The Seven Goddesses Initiation (Nusta Nuna Karpay) rites are given as energetic seeds of the Feminine Goddess Archetypes, and transmitted into your seven chakras and luminous energy field. Through the healing energies of the Nustas, 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.

Through the powerful initiations of those rites you will experience a real “quickening” in your spiritual growth and personal healing.

Please let us know if you would like to join us on this journey, or if you would like to set up new dates with your group of friends. Our journeys at Q'ero are always available from April till October.
