To follow us during the journey, scroll down to the link to the itinerary below.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Author Mark Amaru Pinkham


Read about Andrea's experience at Machu Picchu during our first trip to Peru in 1993!
Journey to Machu Picchu - A Transformational Adventure in Peru

Throughout our 12-day Andean journey we will travel in and around Cusco,
as well as to and from our retreat center in the Sacred Valley of the Incas
to many of the high-powered vortexes of Peru.
In these places, like Machu Picchu, we will experience amazing megalithic temples and carved stone altars
 where important Andean initiations were anciently observed.

twinkle.gif (912 bytes) Some of the amazing ancient sacred megalithic sites we'll visit:
- World-famous Machu Picchu, the Crown Jewel of the Andes and a SPECIAL HIGHLIGHT of our Sacred Sites Journey!
- The Inca Temple of the Sun (the Coricancha) in Cusco
- Sacsayhuaman, Q'enko, Tambo Machay in and around Cusco
- Ollantaytambo, Moray and the Inca Misana in the Sacred Valley of the Incas
- Quillarumiyoc in the Anta Valley near Cusco

In order to fully receive the Andean energies, we will also daily observe shamanic ceremony,
as well as optional yoga and meditation.
And we will also provide you with training in certain facets of Andean Shamanism so you can learn
how to harness the Earth's power for healing, spiritual awakening and deep transformation.

One of the highlights of this unique spiritual journey will be a 2-day visit
to ancient MACHU PICCHU, the Crown Jewel of the Andes!

At Machu Picchu Andrea & Mark will facilitate these unique opportunities:

1) Puma Meditation/Initiation - At an out of the way place they'll assist you to connect with the energies of the Puma,
the Totem animal of the Third World in the Inca Spiritual Tradition.
This powerful animal teaches us how to live in the physical plane, our 3-D world.
2) Amaru/Serpent Meditation/Initiation - Away from the crowds of tourists, Andrea will assist you
to connect with the energies of the Amaru or Serpent, the Totem of the Uku Pacha, the Lower World.
In our own consciousness this energy represents our unconscious, our dreams, our meditative states.
Open yourself to receive the gifts of this powerful energy!

SPECIAL HIGHLIGHTS in The Sacred Valley of the Incas!

Mark Amaru will offer the following Presentations at our group meetings in Cusco and at the retreat center in the Sacred Valley:
Ancient Mysteries of the Andes - Parts 1 and 2
Andean Shamanism

Optional Seminar - The Order and Mystery School of the Seven Rays
He and Andrea will offer the Optional Initiation into The Order and Mystery School of the Seven Rays

In addition, Mark Amaru, a yoga & meditation teacher for many years, will also offer optional light stretching & meditation sessions
during the days we're at the retreat center in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Additionally, we'll be blessed to have some of the AUTHENTIC indigenous Q'ero Elders with us!

They will offer you five levels of wisdom teachings from their ancient lineage.

These sacred teachings will help you with your own spiritual growth.
Equally important, they will help you to better be able to offer love & healing
to The Pachamama
, who we all know direly needs that right now!

During the time they share their ancient authentic teachings,
they will also make despachos, or prayer bundle offerings to The Pachamama (Mother Earth),
as well as teach you how to do this for yourself.

Their sacred words of power will energize each moment
and process that you will experience with them.

They and their ancient lineage will bestow upon you the love, wisdom & transformation
that has been held sacred by them for 1000's of years
and is now being passed on to those who are found worthy to receive and safeguard them.
You will become a Brother or Sister of the Q'ero Nation!

You'll receive a sacred ceremonial belt, an altar cloth, various power stones and more.

Additionally, you'll be awarded a Certificate of Completion from the Q'ero Nation.

These are the five levels of ORIGINAL TEACHINGS in the Inca Spiritual Tradition
that you will receive instruction and initiation in:

Hampi Karpay - Ritual of The Healer
Chumpi Karpay - Ritual of the Bands of Power
Chaska Karpay - Ritual to the Guardian of the Stars
Hampuy Karpay - Ritual of Return
Pampa Misayoq - Ritual of The Guardian of The Earth

Andrea and Mark
will lead our 2025 Sacred Sites Journey to NEPAL & TIBET


Sacred Journey to the Himalayas,
With Special Pilgrimage Around Holy Mt Kailash,
Fall 2025 - Dates to be announced

Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime Himalayan experience!
We'll travel through the awe-inspiring mountain kingdom of Nepal,
followed by a visit to the "forbidden land" of Tibet at the very Roof of the World.

You'll then have the auspicious opportunity to embark on a holy pilgrimage
around the base of the most holy mountain in the East, Mt. Kailash, the "Crystal Mountain."
It's said that simply by being in the presence of this sacred mountain, and especially when walking around its base,
one can achieve extrication from all worldly desires, dissolution of karma and even complete enlightenment.

For those in the group who choose not to circumambulate Mt Kailash, you'll have the option to visit other sacred sites.
The two groups will meet back up after the Kailash pilgrimage
to cross the Tibet/Nepal border and and return overland to Kathmandu.

FEATURED SPEAKER: Author Mark Amaru Pinkham

  The Order and Mystery School of the Seven Rays
The Path of the Dragon Mystery School

The Seven Rays Order and Mystery School
is a mystery tradition that has existed since the dawn of humanity.
These ageless mysteries and their wisdom are resurfacing now.
They are needed on a much larger scale than ever before as many seekers on Earth
are now provided the opportunity to learn many lost teachings and alchemically rise
 to a new level of expanded spiritual awareness.
The revival of the rainbow symbol of the Seven Rays is also important now.
It represents all races and countries that are destined
to reunite into a one-world humanity in the near future.

Mark Amaru Pinkham is the Founder/Director and Lead Teacher.
Andrea Mikana-Pinkham is the Co-Director and Co-Faciliator.
