Peru: Via Illuminata


Greca ChicaVia Illuminata – Premiere Journey to the Sacred Valley
Open To: Existing Students and Non-Students of The Four Winds

Dates: June 11-23, 2015
Host: Dr. Alberto Villoldo

Alberto Via IlluminataCome respond to your soul’s calling and explore a spiritual retreat to Peru’s Sacred Valley. 

Your trip is personal. You align with who you are becoming through sacred ceremony on ancient sites such as Tambomachay, Pisaq, Quillarumiyoc, Ollantaytambo, Moray and Sacsayhuaman. You are held in community and have the opportunity to connect with like-minded journeyers.

Our base for the Via Illuminata spiritual retreat will be a comfortable hotel in the Sacred Valley an hour from Cusco, the former capital of the Inka Empire. Every day you depart with a small group accompanied by your Four Winds Staff, Peruvian guides and shamans to work intimately in one of the archeological sites. In the evening, join in community as Alberto shares his wisdom and vision for our becoming. In addition, you will participate in healing ceremonies led by our shamans.

During our journey you will celebrate and understand the Pachakuti, or ‘turning over of the world.’ For the shamans this is not an intellectual understanding that you can acquire from reading a book or listening to a lecture. It is a cellular experience, a direct cognition that occurs during the process of the initiations you will receive.
