PATAGONIA, CHILE: The Mapuche Experience – To be announced
« Back to Trip Overview
A one-of-kind experience awaits you: Journey into the world of the Mapuche, an indigenous people of great depth, wisdom and spirituality who have inhabited the Patagonia region since ancient times. Through this unique opportunity to become one with the Mapuche community during your visit, you will see the Universe through their eyes. Come awaken your connection to these sacred lands and re-discover the essence of your own inner being!
The Wisdom of the Mapuche Nation
The Mapuche people live in constant union and harmony with Mother Earth, respecting her laws and recognizing her sacredness. To truly understand this marvelous cultural and spiritual tradition, we offer you the opportunity to create a deep connection with the Nature of Chilean Patagonia: a connection that includes not only the dimension of the mind but also the dimension of the body, heart and Spirit.
By relating with the Mapuche people, learning how to prepare traditional meals and exploring Mapuche art and traditions that have defined their identity since ancient times, you will get to experience the authentic and original Mapuche nation, one of great significance in the Patagonia region.
Throughout the six days of the Mapuche Experience we will be offering activities to encourage your personal contact with the forces and energies inherent in these lands. Each day of the experience has been designed according to a different essential element: air, fire, water, and earth. You will be guided to create your unique connection with the elements and with Nature through a variety of amazing activities ranging from ceremonies with the community sages, Qigong and Tai Chi exercises, meditative nature walks, visits to sacred volcano and hot spring sites, and much more.
The Mapuche Experience is an opportunity to expand consciousness, discover profound meanings and to reinforce the valuable teachings and insights that will emerge from this fantastic experience!
Your Hosts at Kila Leufu Ranch
The Kila Leufu endeavor is the result of the efforts of a Mapuche family, who out of pride for their traditions and a strong sense of community, have decided to open the doors to an ancient culture of profound wisdom, normally inaccessible to outsiders. With the kindness and warmth typical of a Mapuche family home, Doña Irma, Don Antonio and their children Sandra and Marco welcome guests as friends, creating an atmosphere that makes it hard to leave when the time comes to say goodbye. The ranch also has its own farmland and organic garden, providing fresh and natural products for the daily meals.
