Day 1: Welcome to your gorgeous center in the Sacred Valley! Get settled and enjoy lunch followed by a coca integration circle where we will get to know one another, meet our Q'ero meistro and learn to sit with Mama Coca.
Day 2: After a morning coca circle we will wash away heavy and stagnant energies with a river cleanse using cleansing herbs. Today we will also learn about the traditional Q'ero fire offerings to unite our circle with a despacho ceremony and set our intentions for our journey.
Day 3: We will start today early by drinking San Pedro and walking to a sacred site to sit in ceremony and connect with nature. Meistro Juan Gabriel will share with us the teachings of personal offerings and prayer. In the afternoon we will celebrate with a feast and an intimate integration circle.
Day 4: Today is a day of reflection, integration, and creativity! We're going to have fun, dive deep, explore, and connect in a meaningful way to truly integrate ancestral practices into your particular lifestyle.
Day 5: Today we will meet the Sonqo family, master weavers from the high jungle. They will introduce us to the practice of spinning to make our own baby alpaca wool & dying them with incredible colors of wild plants and insects. Weaving is for all genders in Peru-the whole family participates. Here we will introduce the concept of utilizing creativity as the seed of inspiration for approaching life and work.
Day 6: Today we will get some hands on time weaving on a back-strap loom. Beyond a craft weaving teaches us how actively working with our hands is a practice of mindfulness. While we are creating our hat bands, Daniel Sonqo will share a presentation about the symbology represented in Andean culture.
Day 7: We will continue to master the art of mindfulness by giving loving attention to our weavings. Allowing each thread to show us the quality of our mind and working out turbulent thoughts and feelings by smoothing out the threads of our creative expression. This is accompanied by diving deeper into stimulating teachings of mindfulness and creativity that form the root of these ancestral practices.
Day 8: Today we will be facilitating an inter-cultural dialogue about cultural appropriation and the ways we can respectfully carry forward indigenous traditions in our personal lives. We will bring together individuals of many diverse backgrounds; including indigenous wisdom-keepers, native weavers, young Quechua activists, and all of you beautiful individuals from around the world; to bring unique perspectives to this very important subject. We will finish off the evening with some creative practices to integrate what we have learned.
Day 9: Today marks the Solstice! We will sit in joyous celebration and intentional prayer at the Qapaq Raymi event at Communidad Amalai. This will be a day of powerful ceremony that is sure to leave a lasting imprint in your life. By taking the time to sit, connect, and feed the life force of the Earth on this potent day we are feeding the life force of our own personal dreams and breathing strength into our highest aspirations.
Day 10: Today we again attend the Qapaq Raymi event and join together with more celebration, prayer, medicine, and song. Celebration is a huge aspect of Andean Culture. We enjoy the beauty of life together, celebrate the bounty of the Earth and, in return, bring the prosperity into every aspect of our own lives.
Day 11: Today we say our Goodbye-for-now hugs and wish each other well on our journey with full hearts and a deeper since of wisdom for walking as a steward of this planet.
