Andes & Amazon Maestros
Machupicchu & Amazon Jungle
 


Puma Expeditions happily presents this unique journey to the land of the Incas and to the sacred city of Machupicchu and on to Pristine Amazon Jungle, a natural healing center of Shamans, in the lush rain-forest of the Peruvian Amazon. People in different cultures have largely lost touch with the natural cycles, energetic forces and deep wisdom available to us through harmonious living on the Earth. Through travel to and time in these wondrous and beautiful environments and through contact with the Spiritual Wisdom of the indigenous shamanic traditions, it becomes possible to awaken within ourselves the ancient memory of our relationship with the Earth. This journey will provide a life-changing opportunity to renew and reharmonize our bodies and our lives, being part of a unique encounter between the North and the south, the Eagle and the Condor. This pilgrimage will begin in the ancient city of Cusco with trips to and ceremonies in the sacred centers. After two full days at Machupicchu with opportunities for hiking and absorbing the energies.
