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.”
