Dive deep within your subconscious during this 10-day Sacred Journey of the Soul Retreat at Willka T’ika Essential Wellness in the Sacred Valley of Peru. In the heart of the Sacred Valley you will participate in a daily yoga and meditation practice, led by Megan Christensen and Celeste O'Brien. Throughout the week, you will experience the beauty and time held traditions of Andean culture. You will participate in an authentic Andean offering and a transformative fire ceremony to honor Pachamama, Mother Earth, yourself and your loved ones. The ceremony also reminds us to focus on our intention for this journey and serves as a wonderful preparation of mind, body and spirit for the pilgrimage to Machu Picchu.
Your daily yoga classes and workshops will allow you to explore the depths of ancient self-care practices, as well as some new ones. Throughout the week you will take fully guided tours of Cusco, that include the Korikancha Temple, the amazing Incan ritual fountains of Tipon and the awesome giant stones of Saksaywaman. You will also visit the mysterious Moray Circles, the ancient Maras salt farms, a Quechua mountain school (one of five schools supported by the non-profit Willka T’ika Children’s Fund), the spectacular ruins of P’isaq, and the ceremonial site of Ollantaytampu and its famous Sun Temple.. As a retreat highlight, we will take a morning train to Aguas Calientes, the gateway to the majestic terraces of Machu Picchu, experience 2 days at Machu Picchu, hike to the Incan Inti Punku, gateway to the City of Light, and to the Incan Bridge Stop. There will be time set aside to enjoy a spa treatment, a Crystal light therapy session or Solar Bath. For the more active, choose from a variety of hikes and activities through the valley and up the mountains. Private Coca-leaf readings with local Qero healers as well as Personal Qero healings are also available.
