A SACRED JOURNEY TO PERU
Presented in Cooperation with Inner Quest Church
A Sacred Journey for spirit-centered travelers to Peru, the majestic land of the ancient Inca, the most powerful energy center on the planet today!
The Pachamama will captivate and heal your heart & soul
June 2 to 9, 2014
An Invitation from Cindy Fuller
Over the years, I have been given several “Spiritual Missions” that have taken me to some amazing places in the world. In 2012, I received my seventh such assignment.
“Go to Machu Picchu. When you visit, you will bring love. Instead of taking, you will be giving. It will bring harmony to the world. It will be beautiful.”
And when Spirit calls, I always answer.
I would love for you to join me on a marvelous World Harmony Expedition.
We will tap into all of the love and energy held within these sacred sites, and then share our light in return!
Rev. Cindy Fuller, Spiritual Leader has dedicated her life to following God. A gifted Psychic, healer and teacher, she and Rev. Patrick Abent co-founded Inner Quest Church, a spiritual path which incorporates metaphysical principles with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Rev. Patrick Abent, also a healer and teacher, is a pioneer in the field of vibrational healing. Together they have worked for over 23 years, creating a church of love and a space of “heaven on earth.”
1st Day-Monday, June 2: Depart USA
Leave Atlanta for your late evening arrival in Lima. After clearing customs and immigrations, we will transfer to our reserved accommodations in Lima at our airport hotel
2nd Day-Tuesday, June 3: To Cusco (B/D)
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for our early morning flight will take you through the Andes to Cusco! As we fly into the valley you’ll be greeted by the towering apus (mountains) with their shimmering caps of snow. We’ll be met at the airport by a representative of our land operator and taken to your reserved . This will be a day of rest, so that our lungs and body in general can adjust to the altitude change. In the late afternoon the entire group will gather and go for a light dinner at a restaurant on the Plaza de Armas. The tour begins! Overnight in Cusco.
3rd Day-Wednesday, June 4: In Cusco (B)
After a leisurely breakfast we’ll board a private bus and venture out into the streets of Cusco. Our first stop will be the Coricancha, the Inca Temple of the Sun, where you’ll explore and examine the significance in Incan cosmology of the various temples contained within it – the temples to the rainbow, the lightning, the stars, Venus, the moon, and the sun. Then we go out of Cusco into the surrounding hills to the site of Tambo Machay where a traditional Andean shaman will lead the group in a chakra cleansing ceremony. Our next stop will be Sacsayhuaman, the Temple of the Lightning. Here the shaman will perform a ceremony of offerings to the Pachamama (Mother Earth). After exploring the ruins with our guide we return to Cusco. Along the way, we will stop at what is called “X-Zone” with its special mystical and esoteric significance and have a ceremony with a mystical priest. Free time in the afternoon for independent exploration and shopping. Overnight in Cusco.
4th Day-Thursday, June 5: To Machu Picchu (B/L/D)
We leave Cusco on the early morning autovagon railroad and venture deep into the mountains to hidden and mysterious Machu Picchu – the 8th Wonder of the World and Crown Jewel of the Andes! We disembark the train in Aguas Calientes, the pueblo at the base of the mountain. After a brief check-in at our hotel, we’ll board a bus for the half-hour ride up several switchbacks to the top of the mountain. You’re finally here – among the sacred apus and the clouds – on top of the world and away from civilization. The ancient and enduring energies of transformation welcome us to let go of our worldly concerns and turn deeper within. During the morning our guide will lead the group to all the important power spots in the citadel – the Temples of the Sun and the Moon, the Temple of the Three Windows, the Main Plaza, the Hitching Post of the Sun, the Temple of the Condor, the Pachamama Rock, and more. We enjoy a buffet lunch on the terrace of the on-site hotel. In the afternoon we’ll have free time to explore the citadel on our own, allowing us time to connect with its transformational gifts. In the late afternoon return to Aguas Calientes for a relaxing evening. Overnight and dinner in Aguas Calientes.
5th Day- Friday, June 6: Morning in Machu Pucchi and afternoon back to Cusco (B/D)
A free morning for independent activities, shopping or if you want bathe in the Hot Springs. Please note that the Springs are public, so they are at their best early in the morning. If we weren’t ready to say good-by to Machu Picchu yesterday, don’t worry! We still have time this morning. We’ll be able to go up on your own** if we choose, to commune one last time with the ancient and powerful energies. Perhaps you’d like to meditate on the Death Rock, to assist you in laying to rest any lingering aspects of your life that you feel still need to be transformed at this time. Maybe you’d like to call upon and honor the energy of the condor (totem of the Upper World) in the Temple of the Condor. You may want to sit on the terraces near the Intihuatana (The Hitching Post of the Sun), the main energy vortex for the serpentine energies of the site in order to further align yourself with these powerfully transformative energies. Or, you may have found another special place that you’ve come to call your own. Wherever – the energies will continue to work with you until you say your final good-bye (at least for now!). You might like to climb the towering sister peak of Huayna Picchu** (Young Peak) for magnificent views. We’ll return to Cusco on the afternoon train. Overnight and dinner in Cusco.
** Note: Entrance to Machu Picchu is $62 and if you also want to climb Huayna Picchu, it is an additional $20. These must be reserved in advance as there is a limited number of available entrance tickets. Details for signing up are on your Registration Application.
6th Day-Saturday June 7: In Cusco. Visit to Ollamtaytambo & to Willoq: (B/L/D)
After breakfast, you’ll leave Cusco and we’ll drive into the Sacred Valley to Ollantaytambo, the Lemurian Heart Center site and the Sanctuary of the Wind. During our visit to the site you’ll see the mail altar with its gigantic stones, the largest in the entire Valley. In the late afternoon we depart for Willoq and a quick visit to a unique site. Willoq is a small village in the Peruvian Andes that is sustained by the sale of its colorful textiles by the native craftswomen. This tour offers the chance to experience and share with local residents the Andean tradition of reciprocity (Ayni).
The goal is for the community itself to coordinate tourist activities in its territory; interacting with visitors and helping them understand the community’s rich historical and cultural legacy. While the local women sell their wares in the market, the kids gather in wait for the treats they know will come from the market-goers. The local children wait patiently as you’d expect a crowd of kids looking to satisfy their sweet-tooths. This scene brings that entire village to life the bright colors, the sweetness of the kids, the ruggedness of the life high in the Andes. During lunch, we will have our “Dream Project” (see details below) with the local children before we return to Cusco for our farewell dinner and folklore show. Overnight Cusco.
Dream Project Project at Willoq
The “Dream Project” pairs you with a local village child and together discuss the child’s dreams for this art project in which they draw their dreams on mats we will bring along and that they keep. We have found it to be a valuable opportunity in teaching children the value of dreaming: how important it is to have dreams, to wish for things, to have goals in life, and how visualizing ones dreams in this way and keeping them near you while you sleep helps your dreams come true.
7th Day-Sunday, June 8: To Lima (B/D)
After breakfast, early transfer to the airport for our 90 minute flight to Cusco. Upon arrival, and our transfer to our hotel. Along the way we will have a 2 1/2 hour panoramic sightseeing tour of Lima, declared World Heritage by UNESCO. Arrive at the Plaza Mayor where we see the Presidential Palace and the Cathedral of Lima, imposing buildings still in use. You will also discover the San Francisco Church, which stores an enviable collection of ancient books and has a network of catacombs open to the public, including churches and monuments. We return to the hotel to relax a bit and have lunch on our own. In the afternoon, we’ll travel a few miles outside of Lima to visit the ancient pre-Inca Temple of Pachacamac. The reconstructed pyramids of the site are situated on a high bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You’ll have private meditation time to make a connection with the god Pachacamac, the ancient people’s Creator of the Universe before returning to the city to rest a bit.
Then it’s off to for our farewell dinner (with our luggage) at la Rosa Nautica, located in Pier 4 of the Lima Beach Circuit at Miraflores, an elegant Victorian style restaurant that offers an eager public the most complete selection of Peruvian and international cuisine, as well as the most sophisticated bar to be found on the Pacific shores. All of this combined with an incomparable view and the peace which can only be found where infinity begins. After dinner we will be transfer from the restaurant to the airport to board our non-stop light back home.
