Sacred Valley * Machu Picchu * Lake Titicaca
Sept 21 - Oct 4, 2017
Tour Guided by: Pierre Garreaud & Janice Johnson
Cusco is the Spanish word for the Quechua word Qosqo which means the “navel of the world”. The Incan high priests, the Paqos, describe it as the second chakra or “ñagui“ of Pachamama, Mother Earth. During our tour we will visit many of the sacred sites built by the Incas such as Machu Picchu, Ollantaytambo, Pisac and many others. All these sites were aligned and built in strategic locations that followed the contour of our Milky Way Galaxy.
The locations chosen for these sacred sites were carefully selected by paqos, Inca Priests that were able to feel and detect the refined high frequency energy of Pachamama. The sites follow the “ceques” or energy grid lines from the earth. In the case of Machu Picchu, The City of Light was built on a convergence of ceques, creating a special energy vortex. The Inca civilization left a conglomerate of places and buildings whose structures reveal a profound knowledge of astronomy as well as an astonishing level of development in mathematics.
