Spiritual Journey to Peru & Bolvia

Sunrise ceremony in Machupicchu-The temple to the Gods of nature

There is a joyful country whose sparkling nature was painted by the sun, moon and stars.
There is a country whose enchanting history was written with beautiful stones.
There is a country whose mystery is sung by the voices of its intense Amazon River.
There is a country where the Earth is a sacred healer and the Andean mountains are ancient teachers.
There is a country where faith is inspired by the constant renaissance of the Snake,
the wise pilgrimage of the Puma and the pristine flight of the Condor.
There is a country where the greatest poem to the perfect symbiosis between nature and man
was expressed in the most beautiful temple to the divinity ‘Machupicchu’,
from where a light of hope is born that covers the whole world with a sacred healing energy.
There is a country called Peru… dare to walk on its sacred ground
and surely your story will be a part of the privileged book of life.

Spiritual cleansing, freeing the mind and spirit- Tambomachay - Sacred Valley of the Inkas.

I am very happy to invite you to join us in a sacred journey to my homeland of Peru ‘The ancient land of the master healers’. This amazing spiritual pilgrimage will be filled with teachings, ceremonies and healing. A unique journey which will be led by myself, Richard Aguayo, and my Inka-Q’ero teachers/ brothers, who live in the high Andes. Also joining me will be the Amazon healer Mama Selmira from the Shipibo group.

While in the Andes we will explore together the most sacred and energetic Inka temples around Cusco, the sacred valley of the Inkas and Machupicchu the City of Light. These amazing places are the perfect place to meet PachaMama, our Mother Earth ‘belly to belly’. We will then continue our journey to the verdant green world of the Amazon rainforest. Here we will navigate powerful rivers, and stay in natural lodges where the Shipibo healers will share with us their incredible healing green world. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn how we can heal ourselves. We will collect medicinal plants, roots and bark from medicinal trees that grow in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. We will use them for our own personal healing and spiritual growth.

Dare to walk on its sacred ground and surely your story will be a part of the privileged book of life.

A special journey with Amazon healer Mama Selmira, who will share her wisdom and ceremonies with you.

Special Spiritual Women’s Journey

July 3rd to 14th Led by Camila (Richard’s sister)
November 6th to 17th Led by Richard and Camila

This is a truly special journey, our trip will be based on the wisdom of the Inka priestesses. For thousands of years they have known that every woman who makes a pilgrimage through the sacred Andean mountains can come into profound harmony with PachaMama, Mother Earth, with Mama Q'ocha, Mother Water and Mama Quilla, Mother Moon. Connecting with these feminine energies allows a woman to deepen her feminine essence, her female intellect, her intuition and release any spiritual blockages.

‘The Andes are the natural altar where you feel the voices of the Masters’ – Sunrise Ceremony in Machupicchu.

Together we will explore in depth the most important Inka temples of Peru and Bolivia. This journey will be made even more special as we’ll be accompanied by a beautiful Inka-Q’ero Mother healer, Doña Epifania, (daughter of the great Inka Q’ero Master Don Ramón).
This magical pilgrimage begins in the city of Cusco, called by the priestesses ‘The Navel of PachaMama’ – Mother Earth. There will be exclusive ceremonies in which you will receive teachings at the Inka temples. We’ll visit Moray, an extraordinary temple made up of a system of terraces in concentric rings… paths that lead you to the heart of Mother Earth. We will then visit the temple of Wiracocha, the temple of the Creator of the Universe in the Sacred Valley of the Inkas. Machupicchu, the city of the light, the city of the Gods of Nature is a very special place and here we will take time for a spiritual journey of exploration.
Then we will continue our pilgrimage to the sacred lake of the Inkas, Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, where we will take part in ancestral ceremonies to balance our energies. Beginning in the Temple of Amaru Muru, the great mystical doorway that connects us to the Universe and the higher Masters. Once we are in the sacred Lake Titicaca, we can purify our life energies with the energies of Mama Q'ocha, Mother Water. Then on the Island of the Sun we will receive the cleansing blessing of Tayta Inty, Father Sun, in a beautiful ceremony at sunrise on the most sacred mountain of the Island. To close this extraordinary spiritual journey we will travel by boat around the lake until we reach the mysterious Mama Q'illa, Mother Moon Island, where we will perform our last ceremony together. This will be an opportunity for you to open and increase your intuitive female body. (The Island of the Moon was closed for centuries and was only recently opened to pilgrims from all over the world. Before this the women of the island were able to leave for short periods of time and return, but no one else could visit). The women who live on Moon Island are in balance energetically with their feminine essence. It’s these women, the native priestesses or Old Mama Healers, who will be sharing with us the great initiation at Lake Titicaca.

Our Tour Leaders

Richard Aguayo

Richard Aguayo has been leading Pilgrimage groups around Peru, Bolivia, Brazil and Chile for the last 40 years.

I still remember my childhood with so much joy. I was very close to my Grandmother, who was part of a lineage of Inka healers, from Pisaq in the sacred valley of the Inkas in the heart of the Andes. I grew up assisting her with the incredible healings she performed on her 12 children and her more than 50 grandchildren who were all a part of our large, extended family, she truly was my first ‘Maestra’.

Deep inside myself were all the teachings I had received from all my ‘Maestros’ as I was giving a conference about the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest at the White House in Washington DC. Maestros such as Don Alejandro Jahuanchi, Don Alberto Manqueriapa from the Huachipayri Matshiguenga Amazon group, Don Ramon, Don Marcos, Don Humberto, Don Manuel Quispe, Don Mariano Apaza, Don Angelino Apaza all from the Inka Q’ero group, Doña Juanita and Mama Selmira from the Shipibo Amazon group, and Don Kumpashin from the Ashuar Amazon group, and my good friend Jhon of God from Brazil. Their teachings have come to me as I’ve walked high in the Andean mountains and deep in the Amazon Rainforest over a period of 45 years.


I feel very blessed to be a bridge for the extraordinary healers of the Andes and the Amazon who I have had the privilege to travel around the world with over the last 25 years. Giving healing to at no less than twelve thousand people and performing thousands of ceremonies to PachaMama, our sacred Mother Earth. I also feel extremely grateful that I have created more than 50 projects that have helped native children living with disabilities in Peru and Bolivia.
I feel so much joy in sharing the wisdom, the mystery, the history, the natural beauty and the healing energy of my beloved Peru…Richard Aguayo

I reccently organized a powerful prayer ceremony with children from the Amazon. We were asking for the rain to stop the fires in the Amazon rainforest. Incredibly, just 24 hours later the rain, Mama Q’ocha, Yaku Mama, Mother Water came.


Trip Leader Camila (Richard’s sister)
