There is magic in the mountains of Peru, and no better place to set the tone for a New Year, and beyond. The trip will begin with 7 nights nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees and nourished by a magnificent waterfall deep in the Sacred Valley. You will explore the near by ancient ruins, visit one of the 7 modern wonders of the world- Machu Picchu and soak up the vibrant city energy of Cusco. You will dine on delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly prepared ingredients. This will be a journey, not just about the beauty of our surroundings, but more so about the beauty within Self. Time together will be geared around Sankalpa (san, "a connection with one's highest truth" / kalpa, "a vow"). Through practice we'll explore different ways to reconnect, and uncover our hearts highest intention. Unwind, dig deep, and soak in the magic!
