Pachamama’s Thanksgiving in the Sacred Valley of Peru November 18 – 26, 2018
Let’s celebrate Thanksgiving with Pachamama in the Sacred Valley of Peru!
This gathering will be a joyous week filled with traditional ceremonies invoking peace and gratitude, inspiring
meditations at sacred sites such as Machu Picchu, visits to indigenous agricultural communities and an unforgettable holiday meal co-created by all the participants and lovingly infused with the vitality and grace of the Earth Mother Pachamama.
Who is Pachamama? Why the Sacred Valley?
Pachamama is the beloved Earth Mother who is revered in Andean culture as an ever-present living entity who embodies mountains, rivers, and sacred caves. She presides over all agricultural activity and is considered to be a self-generating creative power that sustains all life on our planet.
In between the ancient Inca city of Cusco and the majestic archaeological site of Machu Picchu lies the Sacred Valley, a region that contains numerous sacred sites and energy vortexes that are known for their power to uplift and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit. These vortexes vibrationally match the energy centers and meridians within your body, recalibrating your entire system, awakening awareness that you did not have access to before and deactivating patterns that no longer serve your divine life.
Tap into the mystery of these sacred places and receive the gifts your own soul has left for you to find! The Sacred Valley of Peru offers a timeless tradition of expressing gratitude to the Earth as part of our own inner peace making process.

Honor the Body and Feed the Soul… The Vibrant Food and Clean Eating Plan

The use of special Peruvian plants, herbs, and botanicals will be a key addition to our menu, used strategically to help our bodies adjust to the altitude, as well as to help prepare the body to receive energy transmissions at the sacred sites we will be visiting.
