Walk in apprenticeship alongside powerful medicine men and women to some of the most authentic and holiest temples in the mountains of the Andes. The Q’ero will share their most sacred traditions of healing and ceremony with you. Traditions that have been passed down through the generations of the Inca medicine people for over 5.000 years.

You now have the unique opportunity to train with the Paqo’s one on one in communion and in ceremony at the top of the world.

An Ancient people and sacred teachings hidden beyond the mountains

After the fall of the Inca empire more than 500 years ago there was a group of Inca people that fled into the mountains of the Andes to safeguard their ancient tradition of wisdom, healing and ceremony. They were isolated at 5000 meters high for 500 years and became the myth of native Incan descendants that disappeared during the siege of the Inca Empire by Spanish conquistadors.
Around 30 years ago these people, named Q’ero, listened to their ancient prophecies of the changes in the earth and the changes of growth within the western people. For the first time in 500 years they started to walk down from the mountains to be in service for their people in the cities and for the world once again.

Now you have the unique opportunity to follow us on a journey throughout the dreamlike landscapes of Peru. Follow us on a journey up to these remote villages of myth and legend. Meet the simplicity and purity of the indigenous people of the Andes. Partake in their way of living in sacred reciprocity with the universe and mother earth as my native friends and families welcomes us into their community. At this sacred place we partake in their ancient prophecies that have been withheld from the modern world since the fall of their ancient society.

Get a life changing experience connecting with places of beauty, power and sacred wisdom. Powerfully re-connect with Mother Earth as you travel ancient tamples of the Inca empire, the native people and sacred sights. Find yourself in the cradle of the lost empire and the sacred valley. Embark upon a spectacular and beyond imagination voyage through some of the most beautiful sights of Peru.

Your guides Victor, Karina and Paqos know a lot about the condors and their habits, about nature, the stars and we are happy to share our knowledge about all this.

Here, natural people have lived on self-created islands of reeds in the middle of the lake since before the Inca Empire. We will see how they built these islands out of straw and how they live here, floating on the waters of Lake Titicaca. With a view of the great mountain Apu Illimani, we travel further out on the largest, highest lake in the world. We are here to explore the mythical story of the first Inca people to descend on two of the lake’s famous islands. The two who came to create the foundation of the entire Inca Empire; Inca Manko Kapaq and Mama Occleo. We go to the island of love; Amantani where we will visit two sacred temples on the island’s highest peaks. These temples are dedicated to Pachamama (Mother Earth) and Pachatata (Father Earth). Here we will step into the ceremony overlooking this magnificent lake that brings us together with the center of the earth. The balance of duality will ceremoniously merge with our collective mother, our planet – Earth. Being human is an extraordinary experience of being alive. We are the most evolved being on earth and here we will through ceremony reconnect with our true nature and consciously walk the journey as who we really are. During this ceremony and in this powerful place, you will receive your spiritual name. A name, given to you by the Q’ero paqos themselves that will name the energy of your soul’s mission and journey on earth. Your spiritual name connects you with your soul’s medicine and sacred path on earth. Your personal power, journey and energy medicine will truly be blessed and gilded by the energy of this place. From this day on, the place also holds you and your medicine as a sort of guide or godfather. In the evening we are invited to stay with the families who live here on the island.

Once in Puna, we stop to have lunch and rest. Our private bus then takes us towards Bolivia, to visit an ancient temple located near Lake Titicaca. This is a very special and magical temple, older than we can date back to a known civilization in the area. This place is known as Amaru Murus, the portal of Amara Mara and is a doorway carved into a rock hill. This temple is linked to ancient civilizations such as Atlantis, Lemuria and is said to be a portal to other dimensions. Here you will meet, feel or see between the worlds with a direct link to your spirit guides. It’s an amazing place. This is also a temple connected to the feminine power of the Andean tradition; Nusta goddesses. It is a very high vibrating place that downloads and gives you lots of energy as well as wisdom. It maintains a perfect balance between masculine and feminine, dark and light, new and old. Through ceremony, new visions are opened within you, what you bring with you and give to the world.

Please note

* Although the journey is carefully anchored in an energetic ”template” as well as in detailed practical advance planning, this itinerary remains ”moldable to reality.” It is the nature of pilgrimage and apprenticeship that some things can change at the last minute. In our experience, the few changes that occurred on our previous trips often opened the door to unforeseen (and usually wonderful) opportunities. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and willingness to adapt, to take advantage of the ever-changing opportunities available in a fluid shamanic universe!
* For the individual healing or initiation sessions with paqos, make a reservation during the trip with Victor while in Peru. All of you will be able to work personally with the shamans.
* If you want to arrive earlier or stay longer please let us know in time. Karina can make extra reservations at the hotel you choose.
** It is not allowed to drink alcohol during the ceremony days and initiations, only on your free time! This is for your own and the group’s safety.
** We live and indeed have lived in transformative times. Covid19 shook the world and we are grateful that the restrictions are gone. Peru has been greatly affected by this. Vaccinated or not, you are most welcome to join us on this journey through the magical landscape of the Andes. You do not need to be vaccinated to come with us to the homeland of the tradition – Peru.

TRAVEL TO PERU WITH VICTOR FORSELIUS

JUNE 7TH – JUNE 12TH | JUNGLE MEDICINE – CEREMONIES – SACRED PLANTS

HEAL THE PAST & RECONNECT WITH THE FUTURE

option 1

There are two options to participate in this jungle medicine trip and retreat. This can be an extra trip added to the program after you have followed Victor’s journey through the Andes Mountains, Lake Titicaca, The Sacred Valley with the indigenous Q’eros. If so, you will go to Illiari Chaska Lodge with Victor Forselius from Cusco with the rest of the group on June 6th at 5 pm.

option 2

The second option is if you have not participated in the trip. In this case, you plan to arrive in Lima on June 5th and then arrive in Cusco in the evening. Here, Karina can help you book a nice hotel where the rest of the group is staying (in central Cusco) for only $ 60. On the 6th you have a free day in Cusco to acclimatize and rest. We then leave Cusco together at 5 pm to go to Carina’s wonderful center just outside the village of Ollantaytambo. Close to nature in a fantastic valley, we stop by the river and listen to the water flowing past us. This water comes from the sacred mountain Apu Whalkay Whilka/Veronica; The Mountain of Holy Tears.

We are honoured to invite you to a magical journey through the wisdom of another lineage of medicine women and men who fled the seage of the empire. Another family of this tradition who found their rest in the deep rainforests of the Amazon. Allow the knowledge of how to travel through the worlds and your inner dimensions to expand beyond visions of reality. Allow your souls eye and sensitivity in contact with the invisible dimensions of spirit to become a first-hand experience. Be able to experience a world of magic without the filters of reality.

 

You will have plenty of Swedish friends to talk to but please note that the journey will be in English.

Description:

Through the beautiful landscapes at the foothills of the sacred mountain Whalkaywhilka, the Ayahuasqeros (ie. Jungle shamans) will introduce and guide you through a healing journey in between the worlds.
Carina Davalos Concha have created a sacred paradise, an Eden for native people and ancient ceremony. The Illiari Chaska Wasi center is the house of Mercury. A very sacred star of illumination and new beginnings for the native people of the Andes. Held by the sacred waters of the snow caped mountain Veronica we will walk through the gardens of Eden, the paradise that we never left. Through jungle medicine we will connect with the feminine energy of our collective mother and with all of our senses. The Ayahuasqero shaman will guide us through cleansings and reawakening rites of passage into the depths of our being where journeying will be not just seen, but experienced first-hand. You are now invited to the other line of the Incas who didn’t flee the Spanish Conquistadors up into the mountains. We invite you to follow the footsteps of those who entered the jungle and they’ll share their most authentic and holiest tradition of herbal medicine, mystique and enlightenment.

Now you have the unique opportunity to meet a master of plant medicine who is safeguarding the shamanic traditions of her ancestor’s lineage of herbalists and shamans. Those who have lived in communion within the green lands of the great mother. They will travel to Ollantaytambo and the Illiari Chaska centre to guide us through 6 days of profound ceremony.

Reconnect with the truth of what’s your souls next step on the journey. Be able to talk to the depths of your own soul and be guided to hear the message of spirit. Allow what haven’t been seen to unfold and let the filters of reality fall aside as you cross the vail of the spiritrealm.

Welcome to be touched and healed by the mythic realm of the universe. Travel through your being, through time and space in a way that your inner being hasn’t been touched before. Meet the next step and guidance of your spiritual development. Come and meet one of mother earth greatest gifts in first hand.
Take a giant leap into who you were born to become, be nudged into becoming your destiny.

 

Join us for a journey

of a lifetime!

She is the protector of the crystal city of Machu Picchu and is called the mountain of sacred tears. She will hold you through an inner journey, through layers of truth and awareness. Illiari Chaska Lodge is a natural garden where we experience in presence the paradise that we never left. Here we will spend six magical days held by sacred mountains and two lineages of different shamans who gather for healing and ceremony. Here we will come into contact with an ancient herbal medicine, plant medicine that Ayahuasqeros from the jungle brought to us. We will work with this sacred feminine medicine, connecting with the power of our collective mother with all our senses. Q’ero Paqos join our side through healing and ceremony – the masters of the living energy. They are our pillars of healing, support and grounding in the days ahead. They prepare various healing purification ceremonies for us as a group. They gently guide us through our powerful insights, healing and closure.
