Peru Certificate .png

An INITIATIC retreat in the magnificent Sacred Valley of the Incas to recover ancient memory, develop consciousness and evolve spiritually. A call to receive the forces of the living divine feminine and masculine energy of nature and empower ourselves in the knowledge of the Andean Cosmovision and the Sacred Rainbow. 

Maria Apaza

Altomisayoc Priestess 

INCA PRIEST / PRIESTESS INITIATIONS  by María Apaza and family.  Maria is 96 years old and is the only female altomisayoc (spiritual priestess) of the Q'ero nation speaking only Quechua. 

The Q'ero nation, in upper Cusco, is considered the
last ayllu (community) of the Incas and its maximum spiritual authority is María Apaza who speaks with the Apus (Spirit of the mountain.) She is the highest spiritual representative of the Peruvian Andes and is the living jewel of one of the most authentic traditions in South America. 

most important magical rank of the Q'ero nation. One can only reach high rank if chosen by nature. In Maria's case, she was struck by lighting in her mid twenties while walking alone in the mountains and survived after having died. She woke up to the smell of burning flesh but with no tissue damage. 

Altomisayocs are considered
the only sacred intermediary that has direct and tangible contact with the consciousness and spirit of the sacred mountains (apus) and Mother Earth (Pachamama.)


Located in the Sacred Valley of Peru, we will tap into the ancient wisdom of one of the most powerfully, energetic, centers of the world. 

We will spend 7 days and 6 nights on a deeply spiritual INITIATION to some of the most sacred, protected sites in Peru drinking in the energy, wisdom and secrets of the ancient culture. 

A reconnection with PACHAMAMA (mother earth) and TAYTAINTI (father sun). 


We will be visiting Panoramic, Colorful, Sacred sites to enhance our INCA INITIATIC Priestess, Priest journey.

By walking out in nature, smelling the soil, conversing with locals, tasting the rich flavorful food, listening to the native music and learning the arts of the land, we will better integrate and remember all the WISDOM WITHIN



Maras salt pans in the Sacred Valley were originally constructed by the Wari civilization, which predates the Inca.


The salt mines have more than 3000 pools of different sizes and dimensions, which are fed by salt water that comes from the subsoil of the Qaqawiñay mountain. T

In addition, to the incredible panoramic view of the salt mines, the market offers  local product: chocolates, candies and even beauty products, as well as body creams with the local salt.



Ñaupa Iglesia

The Inca GATEWAY into another time. The Cosmic Portal to another Dimension. 

One of the most powerful Huacas "energetic centers" in the sacred valley that is a secret gem. 

The energy that is emitted in the altar with its doors and spirals leads to another dimension. It is a sacred place with much energy.


We will do our own ceremony after our Pampamisayoc  (Priest/ess) INITIATION. 



The Andean Pisac town has become the most popular destination in the Sacred Valley – and it’s not just because of its proximity to Cusco. The small, Andean community still keeps its traditional way of life


The confluence of Andean traditions and new-age mysticism – throw in plenty of textiles and souvenir shopping.

Pisac is a perfect example of Inca city planning still intact. You’ll find your narrow, cobble-stoned streets that lead to the Plaza de Armas. When walking around, look up and you’ll be able to spot the magnificent ruins etched into the canyon side.

Pisac is probably most well known for its shopping. Store-after-store-after-store will offer you classic Andean souvenirs.

Machu Picchu 

Before or after the retreat visit Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. 

Only a couple hours away from the retreat center.


*At your own expense



We will receive Andean codes of high vibration in natural temples of Pachamama, mountains, waterfalls and archaeological sites.

Accelerating the
awakening and ascension of the new human being, free of fear, free of blockages, free of duality to ascend to higher dimensions of love and reciprocity with everything that exists as guardians of life and all creation.




Personalized despacho will be created in conjunction for each INITIATE at a powerful sacred vortex. 

A despacho is a ceremony honoring Pachamama (mother earth), the sacred Apus (mountains) and the spirit in all of nature.

The Andean people believe all are connected and as a way to show continuing appreciation and gratitude for the crops we eat, the water we drink and the land we live on. 


A despacho is an act of love and a reminder of the connections we share with all beings, elements, spirits, and sacred places.  At the deepest level, it is an opportunity to enter into the essential unity of all things, the living energy of the universe.. 

MISHA - The Altar of Power

We will learn how to build and activate our own Misha. Using it to establish a concrete communication with the living energies of Nature, and how to specifically use the Khuyas (stones of power) that make up the Misha, to finally understand the various applications in healing and spiritual practices.

Misha is what in other traditions is known as the packaging of medicine made out of sacred stones "khuyas."


In the Andean lineage of María Apaza, the 'khuyas' constitute the vital sacred objects for initiations, healings and oracles. The 'khuyas' are the blessed stones - daughters and direct heirs of Pachamama - that are obtained from a place of great power.

Khuya means “affection.” The items you gather into your misha bundle are objects infused with your munay, or love. They represent your ayni connections to teachers, the most important spirit beings, places you have worked such as temples or sacred sites, and the most important, loving, transformative events of your life and people in your life.


These khuyas are gathered together and wrapped in a cloth, which is the misha.



Mama Coca

According to an Andean prophecy: the COCA leaf represents for the indigenous people; strength, life, is a spiritual food that allows them to get in touch with their divinities "Apus, Achachilas, Tata Inti, Mama Quilla, Pachamama".

The Andean Priests connect with the spirit (sacred mother) of the divine plant through a mysterious power in a higher conscious state. This practice was carried out ancestrally by the first cultures in South America, cultures older than the Incas.


The Masters specialized in coca leaf reading, come from Queros, Ausangate, Paucartambo and other regions of Cusco-Peru.

Coca leaf reading workshop will be given. 


Is a Direct Energy Transmission that Activates the KUNDALINI AWAKENING Process.
During a KUNDALINI ACTIVATION (KA) session, your natural state of consciousness will adjust to a higher frequency which connects you to your original essence and provides DEEP HEALING.


There will be at least  3  Kundalini Activation transmissions  for the Initiatic Retreat. 

During a KA session, Kundalini Energy, "LIFE-FORCE Energy" is activated in a safe and secure way via TRANSMISSION while you lay down and SURRENDER.

YES, a gentle FEMININE modality of RECEIVING the amount of energy one is prepared to deal with and integrate in the vital system. In this way, one is never at risk of going through the shock of any sudden AWAKENING that we are not prepared for.

It is a direct transmission of Life-Force energy that supports the awakening of your own innate Kundalini energy. An intelligent energy in its natural process giving your chakra system exactly what it needs at that specific moment in time.

KA is a transmission of LIFE FORCE Energy which enters from the TOP of the CROWN, down towards the root chakra, gradually builds up and eventually begins to flow in both ways.
