JOURNEY OF A LIFE-TIME ~ October 19 – 30, 2015

Peru AusangateHave you ever felt just right – supported and expanded – in a particular environment that allowed you to open to insight and freedom? This radiance, or Truth, is intensified in places around the world that are particularly harmonized. You can feel it in the trees, in the water, in the soil and in the people. While radiance is everywhere at all times and places, coming into relationship with such sacred land allows us to go deeper in to our own awakening.

Medicine work in Peru’s Sacred Valley and the high Andes,
with our guides and in solitude,
will offer participants a deep and
authentic direct experience of what is True and alive in each of us.

Journey of a Life-Time  Come join our twelve day Peru Intensive! Learn unique skills and practices as you are guided and supported by an extraordinary team of medicine people. No particular world view or expertise is required. Each participant will have their own direct experience of the ancient shamanic ways of knowing truth and beauty.

Experience Ceremony and Ritual  We will weave our medicine bodies to the mystical land of Peru and bring the mystery home to nourish North America. Enjoy “sacred play” in pristine lagoons, high mountain camping, historical and archaeological sites, artisanal crafts, native food and sacred places off the beaten path. Travelers will have opportunities for true dialogue with Q’ero shamans.

Create the pathway you need to reclaim the aliveness of your unique soul!

hamiltonExpert Support  Our pre-trip Quechua language lessons, advance information about altitude and packing lists make for easy preparation. During the trip, experienced mountaineers and medicine guides share their deep, local knowledge. Post-trip community gatherings create a fun opportunity to deepen our understanding of the teachings.

Exciting Itinerary  We begin our twelve day journey as we acclimatize in the Sacred Valley, with ceremony and light hiking around ancient sacred sites. We will then spend three nights on Apu Ausangate, the director of all the holy mountains in Peru: tents, porters, horses for those who need assistance, fabulous fresh food, camp toilets and a certified high mountain guide make this a rather luxurious wilderness experience! On our return to Cusco, we will have time for rest, artisanal market days, healings or an optional well-supported experience working with the plant medicine San Pedro. Ceremonies at sacred sites on single day trips will allow us to share our insights, and dialogue further with the shamans and the land. Together, we create a way to bring it all home!

Small Group: Big Experience  There will be a maximum of 20 travelers on this trip,  allowing us to co-create community and to take our time as we move through this beautiful land.

The Perfect Pace  Journeying to Peru together since 2010, the Rising Fire team creates an extraordinary expedition, where there is lots of space for personal work, and a slow enough pace to relax, have fun and to integrate your insights and experiences.

Cost & Logistics  The cost of the trip is $3,650 plus airfare – includes meals, accommodations (double occupancy; for single room add $450), all local transportation, fees to sacred sites, certified guides and mountain support team. Gratuities are not included.

Experience the sacred land of Peru with the guidance of wise and generous teachers!
