Sample of Our Journey Together
Day 1 Lima/ CUSCO/ San Salvador
Arrive in Cusco no earlier than 11 am, to the sacred city of Cusco, the center of the Incan Empire. You will be picked up and transferred to San Salvador, in the Sacred Valley where the Catalina Center is located. The rest of the day is free to rest and recover from jetlag.
Day 2 Catalina Center –
Plant Medicine Day or Training day
For those that are interested in plant medicine, you will meet with one of the foremost authorities and shamans of the plant medicine San Pedro or “Wachuma”. You will be walked through of internal celebration self-discovery and love.
The plant shows us where we hold our negativity in our bodies, where it came from, and then shows us what we SHOULD have learned from that experience. Once we see that, we release the negativity in our bodies, and we feel really clean and light afterwards, and we can think of that same experience afterwards, and we can give thanks for the teachings we received. It teaches us that NO experience is a bad experience, IF we learn from it.
In the same way, it shows us our thought patterns, and teaches us that every illness we have, is NOT because of bad luck, but because of the way we think. It teaches us to stop and recognize HOW we think, and change our thoughts, into positive ones. This is how we clean our bodies from all illness…is by cleaning our minds. The medicine has produced many miracles, people being cured of cancer, and all sorts of illnesses, just by them drinking this sacred plant.
The plant shows us too, that we are all children of the Light; we are all precious and special. It teaches us to see the divine within us, and to hold the divine light within us
We also use this plant to reconnect to the earth. In this experience, we realize that there is NO separation between you, me, the earth, and the sky. We are all ONE. It’s one thing to read but to experience this oneness is one of the most beautiful gifts we can receive. The plant also teaches us to live in this world in balance and harmony, it teaches us compassion and understanding, and shows us clearly to love, respect and honor all things.
Day 3 Pisac:
We will spend the day climbing the which are Peru’s most intact ancient sites, and a perfect example of ingenious Inca architecture. They are built on top of a mountain that towers over the small town of Pisac; the views of the countryside are spectacular, and the ruins and their makers are remarkable.
We will be led by a very informed guide to share with us the culture if the Incas. At some point on our journey we will have time for meditation and ceremony to connect to this incredible site. We will then make our way back town into the beautiful town of Pisac for a late lunch and deep conversations about our learnings!
Day 4 - Indigenous Community Day
One of the incredible things about Pisac that is a hidden gem, is the 12 indigenous communities that live the in the mountains above Pisac. Over the last few months, we here at Catalina have forged relationships with 7 of these communities. These are Chahuaytire, Pampallacta, Paru Paru, Amaru, Viacha Ampay and Qotataqui.
On this day and evening we will spend time in one or two of these communities, learning about their culture. How they live, celebrate, and eat. We will learn about their agriculture, the staple of these communities the over 1700 different kinds of potatoes. They will also demonstrate how they take the wool of the Alpaca and how they create the permanent colors, like from the famous cochinilla bug that lives on the cactus of the Andes and the process of making the beautiful textiles by hand they are famous for. We will dance with them and come away with a very deep sense of the how these indigenous people, who are the descendants of the Incas have shaped the sacred valley and Pisac.
Day 5 - Training Day/ Open Day
We will spend the morning connecting to each other’s stories and lessons learned. The rest of the day will be free for you to finish any shopping in Pisaq for souvenirs you still need to purchase or just take in a local coffee café and relax before your long trip back home the next day.
