“It is written in Sacred Scriptures that in life there are six moments of opportunity that will never come back again. This journey is one of those moments that need to be recognized and sized. This will be an opportunity to walk through a portal of true initiation; you will be able to walk in the footsteps of priest and priestess into the womb of ancient pyramids where the common person could never enter. This journey will help you remember your true essence and give you the opportunity to balance in three segments you chakras.

The first pyramid is for the initiation of the first three chakras, using the energy of Akasha to deeply connect with the earth, with your sexual creative energy and with your emotional body. The second pyramid an initiation for the upper three chakras, to heal your throat so you can truly speak the language of love, you third eye so you can see beyond ordinary reality and the crown to connect you with the Masters and the Great Spirit in an extraordinary way; The third pyramid is our final initiation, this is for the heart. This will bring it all together the union of heaven and earth, entering this pyramid will be like entering the sacred altar of your heart where you will be able to clearly see your own unique inner qualities. The lower chamber of the heart will show you how to amplify human love. The upper chamber of the heart will deeply give you the opportunity to connect intimately with Divine love, the love that is within you.

This journey will take place during Vesak. Vesak also known as the Buddha’s Day, many times people refer to this day as the Buddha’s Birthday, in fact it actually commemorates the birth of His enlightenment and His death. This day reminds us of the most profound knowledge and insights that He received the night of His enlightenment.

As we recall the Buddha and his Enlightenment, we are immediately reminded of the unique and most profound knowledge and insight, which arose in him on the night of his Enlightenment. This day reminds us of the impermanence of things in life and the opportunity to recognize the importance to live our lives in a noble way, with kindness love, compassion and in harmony and peace with humanity.

Celebrating Vesak means making an effort to bring happiness to the unfortunate, the aged, the handicapped and the sick; and to awaken a consciousness within of higher values and principles in our lives.

Come and experience an extraordinary shift in your chakras, your body, mind and soul.”

"I thank you for mantras and for this magnificent stay in Peru. After a “period of rehabilitation" and reentry to my daily life, I still feel the benefit of this journey. I feel a bigger opening of my heart and an enjoyment constantly; a sweet peace is now a part integral of my being"

"I want to thank you so much for encouraging me to come to the extension. WHAT A SPECIAL EXPERIENCE I felt the strings of suffering from my former husband have dissolved from him to me and my children. Now I am ready for a new relationship of love with a new partner. During the plant medicine I felt your loving presence and a bond of light between us, SO POWERFUL.  It is a pleasure for me to walk in silence beside you, nothing to do, nowhere to go, just be ... Sending my deepest love."

"What a beautiful intense journey we experienced!! Since I'm here in France again, nearly every night during dreamtime I return to Peru, and especially to Machu Picchu, where we had the beautiful opening heart ceremony - it is strange how real it feels!!! You are in my heart and all these precious moments shared, the deep connections, the fun, all the sharing from soul to soul is precious to me like sparkling diamonds inside.

Through the connection and translation for you, I grow each time a bit more and recall my essence as a child of light. Thank you ever so much for being in my life! In Joy of meeting you again soon..."
