We come together at Sach’a Munay Retreat Center located at the base of a stunning waterfall and the powerful mountains of Pitisuri and Sawasiray in the middle of the Sacred Valley by the small village of Arin, one hour and fifteen minutes from Cusco.

There will also be time for your to explore the site on your own and find your deep connection to the magic of Machu Picchu. We stay at beautiful, comfortable hotels both in Machu Picchu and in Ollantaytambo.
The Andean Traditions & Q’ero Wisdom Keepers & Curanderas
You will be embraced by the Q’ero shamans, the wisdom keepers from the high Andes who are powerful and filled with laughter and love. They will guide us back into balance with all of creation. In the Andean indigenous wisdom tradition, it is said we are in the age of the “Tariapaycha,” a time of emerging consciousness that allows us to heal ourselves and share that gift with others fully.
On the journeys, you will receive energetic rites. The Q’ero will offer the Karpays, initiations, and transmissions to transform your human energy field into that of homo luminous, luminous beings. The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a new human appearing on the planet, one who lives free of fear and resides in his or her transcendent nature.
We also have some time to work with and experienced Curandera (healer), Wilma Pinedo. She will offer us ceremonial work with the elements and empowers us to learn how to heal ourselves and step into our own power.
Join us on this transformational journey of awakening in Peru, the mystical land of Pachamama, mother earth, and experience the deep inner mysteries of healing into your most authentic self. Those who have joined the last few retreats to Peru have said it was the experience of their lifetime and has transformed their lives!
The Q’ero are considered the wisdom keepers from the high Andes. These beautiful healers embody the true essence of love as they share and transmit their healing and message.
The Q’ero are the direct descendants of the Inca, who, 500 years ago, fled to the safety of the sacred mountains to escape the Spanish Conquistadors. They fled and made their villages in the clouds at 14,000 ft. Fortunately, the Spanish failed to find them there.
The Inca Master Shamans were considered the “Wisdom Keepers.” Their oral tradition preserved the ancient healing methods, rituals and the prophecies for the future of human beings and the planet. This knowledge has remained uncontaminated for thousands of years.
The Q’ero understood that there would be a time when the world needed to remember the ancient wisdom. At this time, they would come down from their lofty hiding place to spread their knowledge. The time is now. With their infinite graciousness, they are offering this knowledge to all of us with their most open hearts.We will work mostly Don Basillio, Dona Sabina & Dona Santusa. We may work with others as well.
Vilma Pinedo comes from a long line of healers from the Andes mountains of Peru. Vilma’s grandparents are renowned shamans, and she was called to this path before she was born when lightning struck her mother while pregnant with Vilma. She grew up surrounded by master healers and began her path as a curandera (healer) at the age of 12, reading coca leaves and using her intuition to tell people how to heal themselves often with amazing results. Vilma learned English ( a rarity in the Andes) and was one of the people asked to accompany the Dalai Lama to Machu Picchu. She uses her fit as a tool for peace, healing, and unity

Ashera trained in Peruvian Energy Medicine and Shamanic Healing thru The Healing Light Body School and Alberto Villoldo and in the Toltec Shamanic traditions with Dona Bernadina Vigil. Her journeys have also taken her to sacred sites in Mexico and Peru, where she learned directly from local indigenous healers and shamans. Ashera is full Mesa carrier in the Peruvian Q’ero tradition and has received the sacred rite transmissions from the Q’ero shamans from the Andes. As a healing practitioner guide and teacher, she is passionate about assisting others on their path to restoring their original freedom, balance, and joy.
