Together, we will open to a much grander view then the one we are current­ly living. As spir­i­tu­al jour­ney­ers seek­ing a larg­er real­i­ty, we will invoke the power and the keen vision of the high-flying Condor and utilize the heal­ing power of Shamanic Breathwork™ to take us on an inner jour­ney that will allow us to fully open to the beau­ty and mystery of Peru, its unique culture and it’s rich spir­i­tu­al tradi­tions.”
