DAY 01 - ARRIVAL
+ CEREMONY

We’ll await your arrival at Cusco
airport and take you on a beautiful 1.5 hour car journey to the Sacred Valley
where you’ll meet your hosts Vanessa, Andreita and Daniela. You’ll have a
chance to settle into your home for the week before meeting for our opening
ceremony.

During our welcome circle we’ll
meditate and set intentions followed by a Despacho Ceremony led by a Shaman
from the Indigenous Quechua tribe. Despacho rituals are designed to align,
balance and harmonize the three levels of consciousness with a prayer bundle or
offering of gratitude to Mother Earth and Mountain Spirits. The Despacho holds
symbolic elements as well as the prayers of the participants. As the elements
are added to the Despacho, the vibration of the participants and the room raises.
The Despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing.

We’ll end the evening by burning the despacho bundle over a
bonfire under the stars followed by a nourishing dinner and a good night’s
rest.

DAY 02 - PISAC +
INVERSION IMMERSION

We’ll begin our first full day in the Sacred Valley with an energizing
morning flow with Vanessa.

After a delicious breakfast, we’ll head to one of the most famous
markets in the Cusco region. This local market is full of local artisans from
the indigenous Quechua communities from the surrounding highlands. Here you’ll
find all kinds of unique locally made products such as chullos and coats with
alpaca wool, silver jewelry and ornaments, flutes, backpacks and many other
accessories; all made by hand and decorated with bright colors. You’ll also
have the opportunity to greet a local alpaca or two and sample some local
delights. Lunch will be on your own at the market before we had back to the
retreat centre.

In the late afternoon, we’ll gather for an optional walk around the
Sacred Valley learning about the surrounding area, the inspiration behind the
centre as well as the intention with which everything was created. We’ll also
learn about all the fruits and vegetables grown in the property’s backyard (which
we’ll be eating throughout our week). 

We’ll wrap up a fun
filled first day with an Upside Down Bliss: Inversion Immersion Workshop with
Andreita followed by dinner.

DAY 03 - EXPLORE
ONE OF THE WONDERS OF THE WORLD!

Today we cross off one of the most visited tourist destinations in Peru
from our bucket lists! Early in the morning, we’ll depart for the famous
Vistadome train, a 2 hour ride that traces the Urubamba River with dramatic
mountain landscapes, approaching the ancient Aguas Calientes, or the base of
Machu Picchu for a small breakfast before making our way to our highlight of
the day.

We’ll spend the day exploring one of the world’s most prized heritage
sites with a private guide, who will provide an informative overview of the
history and architecture of this ancient citadel, while introducing us to the
temples and ritual structures that prove that Machu Picchu is a sacred place of
great spiritual significance.

We’ll return to the
Sacred Valley just in time for dinner and a much needed night’s rest.

DAY 04 -
RELAXATION + RUINS

Today is a great day to slow down and enjoy the crisp mountain air and
your breathtaking surroundings.

Vanessa will lead us through a morning practice followed by free time.

After lunch, we’ll take a trip to the Maras Salt Mines, comprised of
over 2,000 small salt wells, the “Salineras de Maras” continue to provide a
steady source of salt for residents of Peru’s Sacred Valley since before the
days of the Incas. We’ll also visit Moray which is one of the most visually
stunning ruins in Peru. The agricultural terraces of Moray are shaped like a
womb, and bring together the key Incan beliefs of nature, science, and
spirituality. 

Upon our return to
the Sacred Valley, we’ll enjoy dinner followed by an evening practice with
Andreita.

DAY 05 - RAINBOW
MOUNTAIN OR DIVINE LAZINESS

Today you’ll have a choice in joining the group for an optional trip to
Rainbow Mountain or stay back and enjoy some divine laziness at our retreat
centre, visit the local spa or opt for a local hike with your new friends.

Rainbow Mountain is
approx 4 hours away from our retreat centre so this will be a long (but
worthwhile) day with a 3:00 AM departure and 8:00 PM arrival back in the Sacred
Valley.  Vinicunca, also known as Winikunka or Rainbow Mountain, is a
striking geological landmark because of its colorful stripes which are made up
of layers of 14 different minerals. Additionally, the mountain sits at a rather
high elevation more than 17,000 feet above sea level, so you’ll need to bring
plenty of water and take your time on the ascent and descent. If you are
feeling the burn a little too much, you may be able to pay a small fee to
travel part of the way by horse with a guide.

DAY 06 -
REJUVENATION + HEART OPENING

We’ll start the day with a flow with Andreita followed by free time to
meditate, read a book, take a cooking, pottery or painting class or book
yourself in for a massage. Today is all about relaxation and rejuvenation.

After lunch we’ll host our final workshop Journey to backbends – Heart
Opening Workshop with Vanessa followed by more free time.

Late afternoon
we’ll be joined by a local practitioner who will facilitate a soothing sound
healing bath. We’ll awake rejuvenated and ready to enjoy a final night of latin
dancing with the staff at Samadhi and our new family followed by our last
dinner and a closing bonfire.

DAY 07 - SEE YOU
LATER!

Today we have our
last morning class, a full body flow with Andreita & Vanessa followed by
our last meal together. We’ll depart for Cusco airport and say “see you later”
to our new friends, until we meet again!
