IMG_0476Exciting Mystical Adventure to Peru and Bolivia

Inka Astrology and Shamanism with Michelle Karén and the Q’ero Master Shamans, November 14-30, 2017 (17 days and 16 nights). Together we shall fly over the enigmatic Nazca Lines, explore  on horseback Marcawasi, the mysterious stone forrest, visit the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Huyana Picchu, and discover the magic of Lake Titicaca. We shall meditate at the Aramu Muru Door, the powerful doorway to the 5th dimension, enjoy the breathtaking energy of the underwater Crystal City, home to the Gold Disk of Lemuria, wake up in the mystique of the Sun Island, and be reborn in the energy towers of Molloco and Sillustani.

M.K., M.A, D.F.Astrol.S., the internationally renowned astrologer and best selling author of Astrology For Enlightenment (Atria Books, Simon & Schuster, NY 2008) with clients in over 72 countries, offers a unique spiritual adventure to majestic Peru. A guest of many top radio and television shows and the exclusive astrologer to the Stars at the 2007 Academy Awards, this highly sought lecturer and author throughout the world, who is also a regular columnist in the Sedona Journal, has written over 8 books in 3 languages. She invites you to journey with her to this inspired, sacred land, to the sacred sites and wonderful people she deeply loves.

Q’ero Master Shamans

Michelle is also a professional shaman trained in the Q’ero tradition both in Peru where, for several years, she has been personally initiated by Don Pasqual, and at the Four Winds Society by Linda Fitch and Alberto Villoldo. She is also the Godmother of 3 Q’ero children. On this enlightened journey to this sacred land, she will share the deep wisdom offered by the Inka cosmology and legends and introduce you to sacred ceremonies with the Q’ero Master Shamans, who, until 1954, were untouched by civilization and kept their traditions intact in the high glaciers of Ausangate in the Andes. This is a unique chance to learn directly from these very special Masters whose love, joy and powers are extraordinary.

Explore Peru and Bolivia

Together, we shall start with an exploration of the enigmatic Nazca Lines and the mysterious Macawasi, stone forrest. In the Sacred Valley, we shall visit Pisaq, the Temple of the Falcon, Q’enko, Kusilluchayoc, Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu, Huyana Picchu, Tipon, Moray and Sacsayhuaman. In Cusco, you will have the exclusive opportunity to explore a magical poncho store displaying the world’s most exclusive collection of unique traditional Peruvian textiles imbued with special magical powers, each between 100 and 500 years old. Accompanied by Michelle, you will make passage from Cusco to Puno, en route, see a rare ET mummy at Andyahuaylillas,  and enjoy a special ceremony at the Wiracocha Temple of the Creator God of the Inkas. We shall then spend time by and on Lake Titicaca, working in various legendary temples such as the Aramu Muru Door, temple of the 5th dimension, and exploring more archeological sites in Malloco and Sillustani. We shall also go into Bolivia, discover Copacabana, perform a ceremony on the Island of the Moon, spend a night on the Island of the Sun and see from our boat (or swim if you wish!) the submerged Atlantean Crystal City, home to the disk of translucent gold of the ancient Lemurians. Michelle personally invites you to take this mystical journey with her through the sacred sites of Peru.

Her mystical journey is limited to 22 people.
No previous knowledge in shamanism or astrology is required.
