WALKING BETWEEN WORLDS & EMBODYING THE LIVING PEACE
Andean Paqos recognize that true wisdom is born of personal experience, heart intelligence and the sanctity of daily life – that life itself is an art and those devoted to its mastery, its artists. At least once a year Paqos enter a time of retreat and pilgrimage to purify, harmonize and commune with Nature.
This year our first retreat offering is in the holy mountains of Peru. People will come together from many nations to work with the Andean Paqos and the Consciousness of the Terrestrial and Celestial realms. This intensive retreat and pilgrimage is an opportunity to cleanse and recalibrate while engaging in the ancient practices of a tradition known for its cognitive embodiment beyond the trauma and drama of human suffering.
This is an invitation to awaken the wisdom that is already yours, to birth knowledge from personal experience and realize your Self within. The program is experiential and universally accessible by design to help individuals reconnect to intuitive intelligence, increase well-being, align with life purpose and evolve consciousness.
EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING & WELLNESS RETREAT
PERUVIAN ANDES: MAY 7-16, 2015 (FULL)
NEXT RETREAT: OCTOBER 6-15, 2015
Accommodations are provided at a tranquil lodge on the shore of Lake Pomacanchi. Days begin with stretching and meditation then move into directed learning and harmonization practices to help balance the mind-body and strengthen one’s connection to Mother Earth. Daylight hours are dedicated to exploring Andean wisdom teachings and working ceremonially with the forces of Nature at sacred locations; evening hours provide time for discussion, completion of the day’s activities, and space for relaxation and contemplation.
The last two days of the retreat will be spent exploring one of the Inkan civilization’s primary temples of wisdom and education. While there, we will be hosted at family homestay lodges and have the opportunity to experience local crafts, music, dance and the generous disposition of the local people. The overall structure of the retreat offers participants time to converse with the Paqos and gain deeper insight into their animistic ways of living.
All lodging is based on shared accommodation with private bath and toilet facilities. We have a limited number of tents available during our time at the Pomacanchi lodge for those who wish to have an outdoor camping experience. Daily location travel is provided by motor coach with light to moderate walking required to access individual sites. Hot meals are provided three times per day at all locations and most dietary needs can be catered to with advanced notification at registration.
PRICE: $2,920 USD – All inclusive program and ground expenses for ten days, May 7-16th. Participants are responsible for their own travel to and from Cusco, and any personal needs for the duration of the stay.
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER by email requesting registration for the May 7-16th Experiential Learning & Wellness Retreat. Please provide a photograph of yourself so we can place face to name. Thank you.
DEPOSIT: After you receive a registration confirmation from us, a non-refundable deposit of $1,460 USD is required to secure your place with the remaining balance due no later than April 1, 2015. Full payment is acceptable at time of registration and special arrangements may be possible by request. Payments can be made by personal check in US Dollars, wire transfer or via PayPal (including credit cards). Bank fees may apply. A trip information sheet with payment details, gear needs, flight and hotel suggestions will be sent to you with your registration confirmation.
Participants need to be in good physical, mental and emotional health, be open and authentic and able to manage themselves in unfamiliar environments. Plan to arrive in Cuzco no later than May 6th in order to acclimate to the 11,000’ altitude and book your return flight out of Cusco no earlier than May 17th. If you are interested in staying longer than the program dates, we ask that you schedule your extra travel and sight seeing BEFORE the retreat. We have found that tourism after deep spiritual work can be difficult on the body’s energetic system and interfere with the integration process. Planning a day or more of rest at home prior to jumping back into busi-ness is also highly recommended.

MOUNT SHASTA, CA, JULY 15-22, 2017: 7-DAY AWAKENING CONSCIOUSNESS RETREAT with NINA KIRBY, ADOLFO TTITO & JEFFREY WIUM
Join us on Mount Shasta for the AWAKENING 2017: SHASTA retreat. Mount Shasta is recognized as a sacred portal and powerful energy vortex containing ancient knowledge and Earth & Star coding. It is also a great key that activates the family of EL. When one comes to the mountain vortex, a natural shift in your vibrational field takes place and the dormant coding sitting within your body is sparked awake. When this happens an experience of one’s Earth and Star knowledge, memories and understanding of why you are here on Earth can occur.
Nina, Adolfo and Jeffrey will guide participants on this journey of activation and remembrance, through ceremony, prayer, meditation, transmissions, Earth and Star journeys and Activation. We gather on the first day at 1:00PM to help with camp setup, kitchen prep and ceremonial space preparation. Before the sun sets, we will come together in prayer and drum ceremony to ground the gathering in love and open to the energies of the Mountain.
Each day sees us working collective in ceremony, making offerings and pilgrimages to power sites, working at the medicine wheels and visiting sacred springs, setting crystal grids and balancing the masculine-feminine; stargazing and fire ceremonies. Each day will see participants in focused heart-space, attending to the needs of the individual and collective levels. Each afternoon will have time dedicated to personal exploration.
Participants will be responsible for their own camping gear and transportation to and from our retreat location. Food can be collectively prepared and shared as desired. Everyone is responsible for the operation and upkeep of the camp, family style. Vegetarian foods, no alcohol, etc.
Come, spend a week in ceremony, camping on Mount Shasta to activate and support your inner wisdom, and work with the Family of EL to help balance mind-body-spirit and assist self-realization.
