“Inner Light:” A Spiritual Retreat to the Andes of Peru ~ April 14-23, 2020

Our 2020 Inner Arts Spirit Journey to Peru is a time to step away from our lives to realign with our soul. On such a journey, the mind, body, spirit, and emotions click back into higher alignment. We change our lens of perception and find a much larger view of who we are and why we are here.

The sacred valley and mountains of the Peruvian Andes provide the ideal environment for our expansion. This is an inner as well as an outer journey.  Within and without become synchronized.

From 2006 to 2011, the Inner Arts Institute led numerous Spirit Journeys to Central America, the Middle East, and the American West, introducing participants to the Vision Quest experience and other shamanic practices that are foundational to Samvedam's practice of the healing arts. With great excitement, the IAI team invites you to join us in paying homage to the land and teachings that have been so transformative in our lives.

Come along for an inner journey guided by local shamans who offer us ceremonies and healing sessions that are grounded in ancient tradition. Integrate these experiences with breathwork, family constellations, and meditation. You can expect to spend 2–3 hours each day engaged in inner practices led by our shamanic hosts, the IAI team, and Pierre and Janice, our local organizers.

On the outer level, our journey will lead us to Peru's famous Sacred Valley, some of its magical lagoons as well as Huchuy Qosqo, a sacred mountain near Cusco where feminine and masculine powers are being balanced through ritual. We will stay on the mountain overnight, journeying to connect with our inner male and female power.

Our sacred work will culminate at Machu Picchu. There, we will take part in a ceremony in the Temple of the Moon as well as an initiation on the mother stone of the temple. Machu Picchu holds a unique sacred vibration that has helped many people find a clear alignment of body and spirit and open perceptions beyond time and space.

Comments from Previous Spirit Journey Participants:

Our Peruvian Organizers

Our Peruvian hosts, Pierre and Janice, have been arranging sacred experiences for travelers for nearly 25 years. In 2016, they hosted Samvedam on a profound transformative journey in Peru. We are absolutely thrilled that they are collaborating with us to offer the Inner Light Retreat.

Pierre and Janice approach their work with deep integrity, sacredness, and safety.  They have long-standing relationships with shamans who meet their high standards.

Their work is informed by Pierre's skill as a Peruvian sound healer and shaman, and Janice's background as a reiki practitioner.
