WALKING BETWEEN WORLDS & EMBODYING THE LIVING PEACE
Ancient traditions recognise that heart intelligence and inner wisdom are born from personal experience, self-respect, self-responsibility and the wholiness forged from daily activity– that life itself is an art, and those devoted to its mastery, its artists. Each year we offer retreat opportunities to help people unwind and unplug, mend separation, harmonise the mind, purify the body, set intention and gain insight while communing deeply with Nature, Spirit and extended states of Consciousness.
Each retreat is an opportunity to consciously cleanse and recalibrate, engage holistic lifeways and awaken beyond duality-based paradigms. Retreats are experientially based and universally accessible to help individuals from all backgrounds reconnect to intuitive intelligence, realign with life purpose and embody loving presence.
"After the trip I feel a much deeper sense of connection towards myself and all life around me; a lot of gratitude and trust, a sense of true purpose, more tranquility, a clearer awareness and more energy to work with. It's like starting a journey into a new world..."
– Christian A., Italy/Germany
PERUVIAN ANDES, APRIL 15-23, 2019: 9-DAY HEARTWAYS OF THE ANDEAN ALTOMISAYOQ RETREAT with ADOLFO TTITO & JEFFREY WIUM
PERUVIAN ANDES, JULY 2018: 9-DAY HEARTWAYS OF THE ANDEAN ALTOMISAYOQ RETREAT with ADOLFO TTITO & JEFFREY WIUM
After meeting in Cusco, we travel to our retreat center in a traditional mountain community next to Lake Pomacanchi. This natural setting provides a relaxing atmosphere to unwind and explore your inner world while experiencing the ancient practices of the Andean celestial maestros.
Each day begins with centering and meditation then moves into directed learning, purification and harmonization practices to help balance the mind-body and strengthen one’s connection to Mother Earth. This time is dedicated to Andean wisdom teachings, experiential learning and working ceremonially at sacred locations in Nature. Light to moderate walking is required to access various ceremonial locations. Afternoon and/or evening hours provide participants space for discussion, relaxation and contemplation. The overall structure of the retreat offers ample opportunity to go within, find perspective, converse with the Paqos and gain understanding of their animistic lifeways based on multi-dimensional reality.
Following our time in Pomacanchi we will travel deeper into the mountains where we will camp at the foot of one of the primary Holy Mountains. This part of the journey is a dedicated spiritual pilgrimage into the heart of the Andean celestial tradition. Participants are provided with a space to go deeper into personal healing while exploring higher aspects of the universal cosmology and animistic consciousness held in the Andes. Daily activities focus on practical techniques, harmonization, attunements, ceremonies and receiving energetic transmissions. The nature of the work is both individual and collective in nature, spontaneous and heart opening. It helps you connect with your Inner Source and the world around you.
We will be operating in mountainous regions at elevations up to 15,200 feet. Participants need to be in good physical, mental and emotional health, be open and authentic, and able to manage themselves well in unfamiliar environments. Over the years participants have rarely experienced altitude related problems. This is due to the preventative protocols that are used to address the mental/energetic blockages that are the root of dis-ease.
While on the journey, all of your needs will be supported by an experienced team of Paqos, assistants, porters and chefs to provide participants optimal space for their unfolding. Hot meals are provided three times a day with most dietary needs able to be catered to with advanced notice at registration. While camping, individual tents are provided for each traveler.
Please plan to arrive in Cuzco at least one day before the start of the trip in order to acclimate to the 11,000 foot / 3,353 meter altitude in Cusco. Please book your return flight out of Cusco no earlier than the day after the end of the scheduled trip.
If you are interested in staying in Peru longer than our program dates, we ask that you schedule your extra travel and sight seeing BEFORE the trip dates. We have found that tourism after deep spiritual work can be difficult on the body’s energetic system and interfere with one's integration process. Planning a day or more of rest at home prior to jumping back into busi-ness is also highly recommended.
Program Cost: $3,175 – All inclusive program and ground expenses for nine days. Participants are responsible for their own travel to and from Cusco and any personal needs for the duration of the stay. Space is limited to 15 people.

Adolfo Ttito and Jeffrey Wium present a 2-day weekend program and a 5-day intensive healing retreat in the Colorado Rockies this July. Adolfo and Jeffrey offer a blend of complementary teachings from the Andean Holy Mountain Tradition, Quantum Energy Medicine and Ancient World Traditions.
2-Day Weekend Program: This 2-day program will focus on information and techniques to help ease and align the process of awakening consciousness. Participants learn to see the sacredness of daily life, find opportunity in obstacles and pathways to loving kindness where one usually finds reaction and resistance. Stories, dialogue, guided meditation, energetic transmission and interactive exercises will help bring the information home in a very practical, and mystical way.
2-Day Program Cost: $200 USD – weekend event only
5-Day Retreat: Continuing on with the weekend offerings, Adolfo and Jeffrey will offer a 5-day intensive healing and embodiment retreat. They will guide participants in the sacred ways of the Andean Altomisayoq tradition.

Participants will learn to harmonize the mind, purify the body, set intention and gain insight while communing with the forces of Nature. This is a time for deep self-care, to cleanse and recalibrate, engage ancestral knowledge, receive energetic transmissions and embody ancient lifeways that exist beyond the trauma and drama of modern times. Daily activities include purification, harmonization and rebalancing mind-body-spirit to evolve overall consciousness.
This is an invitation to awaken the wisdom that sits within you, birth knowledge from personal experience and nurture self-realization while connecting to the spirits of the local Colorado Mountains. This is important for reawakening our higher connections and strengthening animistic relationships near to where we live.

CLEARING DEBRIS, ENCOUNTERING MY DEEPER SELF
by Catherine Björkstén
This, my fourth trip to the High Andes, took me to an unexpected depth. It led me, my mind, gut and heart into my deepest wounds and fears– these retreat experiences never disappoint!
I died to so many aspects of my self that no longer serve my highest path. It was excruciating and oh so liberating! I now see what is left when fear is released... Freedom. Strength. Potential. Courage. Curiosity.
Living from one's highest aspect cannot happen without shedding the layers that burden us. We must be willing to delve deep in order to be reborn and open to where we can manifest freely from our true nature.
One of my greatest lessons during this journey was that I have been hiding most of my life when, ironically, all I have ever wanted is to be seen, heard and loved (the good, the bad, and the ugly). I am not always pulled together and even less so while focusing on my spiritual path. Its not just angelic breezes that meet me along the way... I fall. I crumble. I cry (snot dripping down my nose style). I feel like I want to give it all up. And yet, I get up time after time. The Phoenix must be my totem.
One must tap into trust and vulnerability in order to get to the depth of the soul and let go of separation paradigms. We must be accepting of where we are, our fears, and allow ourselves to be seen, held and supported during the process. The sobering lessons faced during a healing retreat are the most potent opportunities for us to transform and become Alchemists of our own lives. It is all contained within. We are the Masters of our lives and no one can take that away. No one else can do the work for us.
The wisdom and experience of the Paqos and the energy of the Andes are the greatest catalysts I have ever come across. I have yet to find growth facilitators as efficient and I have covered some serious ground when it comes to personal development and healing my past!
I am forever grateful to Jeffrey Wium, Adolfo Ttito Condori, the Ayllu, the Apus, Pachamama, the Celestial Beings and all the powers that come together in these magical retreat environments.
If you feel like it's time to let go of everything that is holding you back, then I highly recommend jumping in heart first and live from a place of deep authenticity, strength, integrity and Love.
