Pleiadian Star Pilgrimage: Connecting with the Ancestors from the Stars
Hosts: The Paqos (shaman priests), Luis Alejo, and instructors from the Serena Anchanchu apprentice program.

June 16 –29, 2017

We are honored to invite you to a very sacred and blessed journey of apprenticeship through the Incan sacred temples connected to the Pleiadian star system. During two weeks of ceremonies, the Paqos (shaman priests) will introduce you to and guide you through the most significant Incan places of power. They will intensively work with you through each ceremony; immerse you in the energy of the Pleiadian stars and reconnect you with your star ancestors, as well as your own specific stars.

These traditions have been passed down from generation to generation of Inca medicine people for thousands of years. On this journey, you will have the unique opportunity to join the Paqos to reconnect with your destiny.

Our pilgrimage will take us between the valleys and hills, where the Inca ancestors built their temples to honor the Seven Sisters called the Qotokuna in the Quechua language (the Pleiades). The Paqos have always recognized themselves as the descendants of the Star-people, especially those from the Pleiades. Throughout history and continuing to this day, they are engaged in exchanging energy and information with the stars. According to the Paqos, each of us is related to at least one star of the Qotokuna. Each of the stars of the Qotokuna carries a very special vibration to support and guide you through your life. One important aspect of this is that their starlight emanates cosmic seeds. These cosmic seeds are planted within us and nurture our fullest potential on earth.

During our journey, the Paqos will share how to communicate with the beautiful energy of the Qotokuna. The Qotokuna ceremonies and initiations will give you deep insight in who you really are. They will help you in the growth of your inner cosmic seeds and bring a huge understanding of the cosmos to you.

We begin the journey on June 16th in Lima. During our 14 days together, we will explore well-known as well as lesser-known ancestral star sites in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco area. We will participate in ceremonies and receive teachings from the Paqos of the Q’ero Nation and the instructors of the Serena Anchanchu apprenticeship program.

Upon arrival at the airport in Lima, the capital of Peru, you will be met by a driver who will take you to your hotel in Miraflores. Miraflores is located in a lovely residential area next to the Pacific Ocean.

Transfer to the airport then fly to Cusco, drive to the Sacred Valley. At noon, we will meet with the Paqos.

Opening ceremony with the Paqos.

Visit the archaeological site of Tipon. Tipon is a spectacular archaeological and sacred site connected to water. It holds an amazing hydraulic system, a wonder of engineering and technology. Tipon is said to have been a royal garden commissioned by Wiracocha. It is one of the most elaborate examples of agricultural terracing created by the Incas. These tall terraces which run up the narrow valley are irrigated by an aqueduct from Pachatusan, the sacred mountain overlooking the archaeological site. It also contains the Temple of Water where we will hold ceremony with the Paqos.

Hike to the archaeological site of Pumamarka and hold ceremony with the Paqos.

In the morning, we will participate in a ceremony with the Paqos to receive the Winter Solstice at the archaeological site, Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo was the royal estate of Emperor Pachakuti who conquered the region, built the town and a ceremonial center. It also contains rock walls of tightly fitted blocks weighing up to 150 tons each. These were moved down a mountain and over a river canyon, 1000 ft high! It is one of the world’s greatest wonders and mysteries. Ollantaytambo also houses a number of temples dedicated to a number of important Incan deities, including the Temple of the Wind.

On Day 7, we will participate in a morning ceremony with the Paqos at the base of Apu Pachatusan. Pachutusan translates as "one that sustains the Earth" or “axis of the world” in the Quechua language. It also is known as a sacred mountain of healing and a portal through time and space.

On Day 8, we our ceremony with the Paqos will take place at the beautiful terraces of Machu Qollqa. At noon, we will travel to Aguas Calientes by train.

Note: Although carefully anchored in an energetic “template” as well as in detailed practical advance planning, this itinerary remains “subject to reality”. It is the nature of pilgrimage and apprenticeship that some things may change at the last minute. In our experience, the few changes that occurred on our previous journeys often opened the door to unforeseen (and usually wonderful) opportunities. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and willingness to adapt, to take advantage of the ever-changing possibilities inherent in a fluid shamanic universe!
