OUR DAILY ITINERARY
DAY 1 ~ Re::Group
We will arrive in Lima and greet our group. We will stay one night in the Manhattan Inn www.manhattan.com and re-group after our travel from home. We will enjoy our first breakfast together and then take a domestic air flight to Cusco.
DAY 2 ~ Re::Fresh
In Cusco, we will arrive at our charming hotel, adjust to the higher altitude and have an opportunity to visit some of the local shops and dining establishments. Later in the afternoon, we will journey out to explore and engage the energy and clarity of Tipon: a canyon site where the water, channeled in aqueducts from a sacred spring, is like liquid light. There we will release the “heavy energies” and balance our chakras, creating a clean-slate to start our journey.
Each traveler will be welcomed into the Chacaruna, or Bridge People: those who walk forward into the light of transformation. We will return to Cusco for dinner and overnight at the Taypikala Hotel Cusco.
DAY 3 ~ Re::Connect
After a full breakfast, we’ll connect to our heart’s desire and the heart of the Universe and travel to the Temple of the Heart cave in Kusilluchayoc. Here we will create ceremony to connect with the ancient Andean energy in the first steps in reconnecting with our heart’s desire. Then we travel further toward the Sacred Valley, and climb down into the belly of the Pacha Mama (the Earth) in Moray.
In Moray we will become the conduit between the earth and the universe. In this day we will understand ourselves as an essential part of the universe and understand why our dreams and our unique expression are so vital to the planet and to the world we live in. We will continue into the Sacred Valley for our dinner and overnight at beautiful Hotel San Augustin. www.hotelessanagustin.com.pe
DAY 4 ~ Re::Vision
Vision yourself and expand your perceived boundaries. The veil between worlds is very thin in Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley. Here, after a full breakfast, we will “see” how we perceive ourselves and our world. We will enlist our dreaming minds and push beyond our day to day perception to arrive at a place where we are free of identity.
Get ready to “fly” as we climb the ancient structures and explore the mountain formations to see the unseen and know the unknown. Also in this day, we will visit local Peruvian craft artisans, have time to relax and shop, and enjoy the train ride along the Urubamba River to Machu Picchu, where we will stay overnight at the fresh and lovely Taypikala Hotel Machu Picchu.
DAY 5 ~ Re::Unite
Unite with the sacred spirit accessible in Machu Picchu. Awaken in the magical mist, share breakfast, and greet Machu Picchu: the cradle of ancient cultures (Incan and earlier civilizations). Explore the city built to celebrate each individual’s connection to Inti, or the Sun.
Dream with the Sun Children, explore your personal narrative, and see yourself in relation to the cosmos in a whole new way. After a day of travel through the centuries, return to Aguas Calientes for exploration and dinner, and overnight at our hotel.
DAY 6 ~ Re::Create
Create at sunrise in Machu Picchu and on the mountain of Huayna Picchu. On this day we will begin to begin again, creating a new version of ourselves without preconceived notion of whom or what we are supposed to be. We will watch the sun rise over the sun gate, journey to the Temple of the Moon where it is said that humans who first lived at Machu Picchu were born from the side of the mountain.
And then for those who are willing and able, we will hike to the top of Huayna Picchu with a magnificent vista. We return to our afternoon train back the Sacred Valley and on into Cusco for dinner in the City and overnight in our hotel.
DAY 7 ~ Re::Juvenate
Rejuvenate in Cusco, the vibrant city that merges ancient and modern cultures.

Here, we will overnight in the unique Taypikala Puno Hotel and Spa.
DAY 8 ~ Re::Build
Build with the three levels of awareness and at the portal of Amara Muru. On this day after breakfast, we will create alliances with the Andean power animals of snake, puma and condor. We will receive the gifts of each understand their power as our tools for transformation. We will also learn about the Andean levels of Consciousness or Realities: Love, Service and Wisdom.
We will also explore Amara Muru, known as a star gate, first recognized by our co-facilitator Jorge Luis Delgado. Here we will set our intention for our self-expression in the world. We will return to our hotel for dinner, relaxation, and reflection.
DAY 9 ~ Re::Ignite
Ignite on Lake Titicaca and the Island of Amantani as we launch our new dreams! After a boat ride to the center of the Lake, we will hike up Amantani Island (the Island of Love), where we will top-out at nearly 15,000 feet above sea level. Gaze out over the Ocean in the Sky and see the curvature of the earth.
Here, with a view of the world, we will take the action of committing to our new dream. We will share a meal with local families on Amantani, and on the way back to mainland we will visit the Uros Islands where the inhabitants have lived for hundreds of years on these floating reed islands. We will overnight in our hotel.
