Titicaca Lake and Machu Picchu
Temples of Power


  The Inka Quechua word "Huaca" means a special place used to unite a being to superior energies or spirits. Natural  caves and Inka  Temples are now the principal  Huacas where even today the Andean peoples gather to perform   ancestral ceremonies of thanksgiving and  union with the natural  elements, especially Pachamama - Mother   Earth, and the Main Apus - Sacred Spirit of the Mountains

.   These  ceremonies  are  always  directed  by a "curandero"  or Andean  priest  who has  been  specially  selected by the forces of nature to be the nexus between higher spirits and man.  This unusual mystical journey through the Temples  of Power will take us to these principal Huacas for unique encounters: to learn the true spiritual techniques of  ancient cultures led by true initiates of the hidden, natives who have dedicated their lives to conserve and share   this extraordinary knowledge.  Spiritual missionaries will find in this program the best way to share their most   profound desire to be  able to meditate alone and-or in perfect union with other seekers of peace, making a perfect harmony in some of the most  powerful energy centers of the world, such as  The Sacred Inka Lake of Titicaca and Machu Picchu, which give all who visit them an eternal light of wisdom.
