You will leave feeling high on life and feeling more gratitude than you knew possible.

WEEK 1 - Sept 21st - 28th

Machu Picchu, the breathtaking Lost City of the Incas, is located on a high, lush saddle tucked away deep in the Peruvian Andes and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Terraced slopes drop down to the Urubamba River, which gushes around a hairpin bend far below the citadel and reflecting the cosmos high above. Since its re-discovery by Hiram Bingham in 1911, a whole host of theories as to its historical significance have emerged. What is in no doubt is how finely preserved the site is, it was not discovered by the Spanish conquistadors nor disturbed by looters since it was abandoned. A must visit!

We will travel to Iquitos for a week of jungle immersion. We will explore jungle life through treks and swimming in rivers, we will do Ayahuasca Ceremonies with local Shamans and their healing plant medicine. Ayahuasca is a brew of various plant infusions prepared with the Banisteriopsis caapi vine. The brew, first described academically in the early 1950s by Harvard ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes, who found it employed for divinatory and healing purposes by the native peoples of Amazonian Peru. Do your homework.
