Signature Journey to Northern
Peru and the Masters of Chavin
​20 days  

A rare opportunity to experience being in Sacred Pilgrimage as you journey to the ancient temples of Northern Peru and connect with the transformational energy of these powerful sites that have been honoured for millennia by the Medicine people and Curanderos (traditional healers) of Peru.

Being in deep ceremony and connected to the natural elements will be a key focus for this journey as we dive deep into the understanding of the Mesa and Varra teachings and how these personal healing tools can have a powerful impact on our lives both individually and collectively in the SERVICE OF LOVE.

During our time in Northern Peru we will further open our awareness to the balance of feminine and masculine energies as well as put into practice the Seven Andean principles of:

  • Munay (Beauty)
  • Llanqay (Sacred Work)
  • Yachay (Sacred Learning)
  • Ayni (Reciprocity/Right-Relationship)
  • Saminchay (Reverence)
  • Illawy (the essence of parity-partnership)
  • Causay (to live in a good way with all of existence)

Our sacred journeys are best suited to individuals who are on a personal and spiritual journey of discovery and who are drawn to discover more about the Andean wisdom teachings and how these principles can be applied to enrich our personal lives, families and communities.

I had a really incredible journey to Peru with Jhaimy as my guide. Warmth, sense of humour and compassion are qualities that just shine from him and make him such a pleasure to travel with. I loved learning about Andean spirituality and the opportunity to participate in traditional ceremonies was definitely the highlight of the trip for me. I did some powerful healing work during the trip and at all times felt totally held and supported by Jhaimy. I can’t wait to work with him again.

Peru for me was a SPIRITUAL REAWAKENING – an AWESOME once-in-a-lifetime TRANSFORMATIONAL event!!!!! …and the magic continues to unfold in my life as my path more clearly defines itself….Jhaimy – thanks for your guidance, insight, love and sharing. This experience was a gift inspired and presented by you! I feel so blessed!!!!!

Jhaimy made our first visit to Peru extremely meaningful by introducing us to the sacred and the spiritual side of the Andean tradition. The extensive knowledge that Jhaimy has about the Andes and the patience and passion with which he shares the knowledge is simply amazing. During our journey to Peru, it was truly an honor and pleasure to be in Jhaimy’s company and learn from him. Besides being filled with wisdom, his style of teaching, his caring nature and his sense of humor made us want to stay connected and learn from him even after we returned from Peru. We found a great teacher, guide, and a friend in Jhaimy.
