Day 1: Lima / Cusco / Pisac
Plan to arrive in Cusco no earlier than 11 am.  Cusco is considered a sacred city and is the center of the Incan Empire. We will all be picked up together and driven to Pisac in the Sacred Valley where the Catalina Center is located.

The rest of the day is free to relax, meet with others on the journey, and explore Catalina, Centro de Amor, Paz Y Tranquilidad.
Day 2: Catalina Retreat Center (Pisac)

Experience stunning views from Catalina Retreat Center and have the choice to learn about plant medicine or other special programs. For those that are interested in plant medicine, you will meet with one of the foremost authorities and shamans of the plant medicine San Pedro or “Wachuma”. You will be walked through of internal celebration self-discovery and love. 

The plant shows us where we hold our negativity in our bodies, where it came from, and then shows us what we SHOULD have learned from that experience. Once we see that, we release the negativity in our bodies, and we feel really clean and light afterwards, and we can think of that same experience afterwards, and we can give thanks for the teachings we received. It teaches us that NO experience is a bad experience, IF we learn from it.
In the same way, it shows us our thought patterns, and teaches us that every illness we have, is NOT because of bad luck, but because of the way we think. It teaches us to stop and recognize HOW we think, and change our thoughts, into positive ones. This is how we clean our bodies from all illness…is by cleaning our minds. The medicine has produced many miracles, people being cured of cancer, and all sorts of illnesses, just by them drinking this sacred plant.
The plant shows us too, that we are all children of the Light; we are all precious and special. It teaches us to see the divine within us, and to hold the divine light within us
We also use this plant to reconnect to the earth. In this experience, we realize that there is NO separation between you, me, the earth, and the sky. We are all ONE. It’s one thing to read but to experience this oneness is one of the most beautiful gifts we can receive. The plant also teaches us to live in this world in balance and harmony, it teaches us compassion and understanding, and shows us clearly to love, respect and honor all things.

Day 3 **Machu Picchu** Aguas Calientes

We will travel by train this morning to the village of Aguas Calientes. On arrival we will, visit the famous city of Machu Picchu, also named as the Crystal City, the Rainbow City, the City of the Condor and the Hummingbird, the City of Peace, and the City of Light. 

The legendary beauty of this magnificent village defines an ancient city of ascended masters. Feel the energies while exploring of the three sacred beings on the Inca trinity: CONDOR, ruler of the realm of spirit. PUMA, ruler of the realm of physical manifestation and AMARU the sacred serpent, ruler of the realm of the psyche, death & rebirth. 

 There are many trails and power sites to explore, and we will have the opportunity to open to a deeper experience of the intrinsic magic of this amazing city. You will get time to spend alone in spiritual ceremony to enhance your connection with your divine self, a transpersonal transformational journey into the inner path to gain confidence in your unique purpose.
Then we will take a bus up to the entry of Machu Picchu and see explore the Inca Ruins.
Day 4: Explore Pisac

We will spend the day climbing the Pisac ruins which are Peru’s most intact ancient sites, and a perfect example of indigenous Inca architecture. They are built on top of a mountain that towers over the small town of Pisac; the views of the countryside are spectacular, and the ruins and their makers are remarkable.

We will be led by a very informed guide to share with us the culture if the Incas. At some point on our journey we will have time for meditation and ceremony to connect to this incredible site. We will then make our way back town into the beautiful town of Pisac for a late lunch and deep conversations about our learnings!
Day 5: Indigenous Community Day

One of the incredible things about Pisac that is a hidden gem, is the 12 indigenous communities that live the in the mountains above Pisac. Over the last few months, we here at Catalina have forged relationships with 7 of these communities. These are Chahuaytire, Pampallacta, Paru Paru, Amaru, Viacha Ampay and Qotataqui. 

On this day and evening we will spend time in one or two of these communities, learning about their culture. How they live, celebrate, and eat. We will learn about their agriculture, the staple of these communities the over 1700 different kinds of potatoes. They will also demonstrate how they take the wool of the Alpaca and how they create the permanent colors, like from the famous Cochinilla bug that lives on the cactus of the Andes and the process of making the beautiful textiles by hand they are famous for. We will dance with them and come away with a very deep sense of the how these indigenous people, who are the descendants of the Incas have shaped the Sacred Valley and Pisac.
Day 6 Open Day/Shopping Day

We will spend the morning connecting to each other’s stories and lessons learned. The rest of the day will be free for you to finish any shopping in Pisac for souvenirs you still need to purchase or just take in a local coffee café and relax before your long trip back home the next day.

Day 7: Departure Day

Spend the day exploring Cusco on your own. Fly today to Lima where you will connect with an international flight home.

More about Cusco and Lima:

Cuzco (also Cusco or Qosqo) was the religious and administrative capital of the Inca Empire which flourished in ancient Peru between c. 1400 and 1534 CE. The Incas controlled territory from Quito to Santiago, making theirs the largest empire ever seen in the Americas and the largest in the world at that time. Cuzco, which had a population of up to 150,000 at its peak, was laid out in the form of a puma and was dominated by fine buildings and palaces, the richest of all being the sacred gold-covered and emerald-studded Coricancha complex which included a temple to the Inca sun god Inti. Cuzco is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

Cusco in Mythology:
In mythology the Inca race was created by the great god Viracocha who caused them to be born from the sun god Inti. The first eight Incas were thus born at Tiwanaku or, in an alternative version, they emerged from the sacred Pacaritambo cave, and then they migrated down to the Cuzco valley. Led by Manco Capac (or Manko Qhapaq) and Mama Ocllo, the group fulfilled the earlier prophecy whereby they should settle where their golden staff could be easily driven into the ground. Before the Incas could prosper, though, they first had to defeat their local rivals, the Chanca, a feat they achieved with the help of stone giants, the Pururaucas. This event did have a basis in reality, as the Incas did indeed defeat the Chanca in 1438 CE. Thus the Inca capital was established. The name Cuzco may derive from either Gosqo, meaning 'dried-up lake bed' or Cozco, a particular stone marker in the city.

More about Lima:
In Lima everything is in endless movement, and even the past is constantly being rediscovered. Lima offers an extraordinary range of emotions, sensations, colors and flavors: travelers can visit the city’s impressive cathedral, fly over the ocean, enjoy a photogenic sunset, or savor unmatched cuisine.

Lima is a place of converging trends, created by its people and their living culture, where you will find every corner of Peru represented. Lima, filled with colonial-era riches, is the only capital in South America that faces the sea, and it is hailed as the gastronomic capital of Latin America.

The groups safety as well as the people we will come in contact with on our Adventure is our number one priority.  
Therefore, depending upon how events play out between now and our departure, it’s possible that airlines, hotels, and/or vendors of choice, or even the governments of Peru or the USA, may require proof of vaccination to travel. 
On the other hand, if this does not happen, then please be aware, we may have attendees who choose not to be vaccinated.

Regardless of the above, any COVID tests travelers may be required to take before, during, or after our trip, as well as any unforeseen COVID related expenses incurred for any reason, will be at the traveler’s expense.
