Pilgrimage to Peru

Sacred Valley Retreat with Mateo Magee

May 16th – 26th, 2017

The focus of this trip is sacred pilgrimage, with equal importance placed on both the inner and outer journey experience. In other words, self-discovery, personal inquiry, and inner transformation will all be fostered while directly communing with some of the most sacred and beautiful ceremonial sites ever constructed by humankind. Every day on this pilgrimage will be an opportunity to deepen one’s awareness and receptivity to the abundant grace available in every moment.

This retreat pilgrimage is the culmination of my nearly two decades of extensive travel in the Sacred Valley of Peru.  It is the byproduct of my cultivated, heartfelt relationships with local healers and residents of this region since 1998. The auspicious formation of this retreat pilgrimage has been truly extraordinary.

Not only will these connections allow us access to amenities commonly unavailable to tourists, the guides that will be present on this retreat are literally the world’s leading experts in the field.  In addition to my own extensive background in the shamanic traditions of Peru, we will be joined by Dr. Bonnie Glass-Coffin Ph.D. (expert in female shamanism of Peru’s northern coast) for the full duration of the trip.  In addition, we will be learning directly from master weaver Grimalda Quispe of Chinchero to witness the ancient back loom techniques and practice known as Pallay, as well as the wisdom of Qero ceremonialist don Augustine Machacca Apaza, who will be journeying with us for the majority of the retreat.
