Are your clients seeking spiritually connected experiences, where they’ll become one with nature and nourish their souls? Recommend this Peruvian wellness experience, which takes them into the country’s Sacred Valley.
Tanit Trails has an experience set for this coming year in Peru that should go to the top of your client’s Xmas wish list. It includes a traditional South American despacho ceremony, a sound healing session, morning yoga in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and a visit to Machu Picchu.
The 10-day trip takes guests from the country’s capital of Lima, right into the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Highlights include harnessing the power of a sound healing session, experiencing a traditional despacho ceremony to give thanks to the Earth, and yoga each morning.
Known for its spiritual properties and rich history, Peru’s Sacred Valley is a 37-mile fertile strip of land between Cusco and Machu Picchu that was once the center of the Inca Empire, and is now home to isolated weaving villages nestled between the Andean foothills.
Journeying through its landscape as a group, travelers will enjoy early morning sessions of meditation and Qi Gong, otherwise known as “energy work,” before venturing out on days filled with hikes and cultural experiences, as well as exploring the ruins of the Incan Empire.
The tour will then take guests to a special domed location as part of their wellness adventure, deep in the Sacred Valley, where they will experience the healing power of vibration and sound.
Wellness Experience Heads Deep into the Sacred Valley
Then it’s time to head even deeper into the Sacred Valley to a small village where there is the opportunity to take part in a traditional despacho ceremony. Always performed outdoors as a way of connecting with nature, a despacho is essentially a prayer bundle or offering that brings together elements of earth, from flowers, seeds, oils and liquor. This is then offered to thank the earth (Pachamama) in one of three ways—given to a body of water, given to a fire, or buried in the ground.
Other experiences included in the 10-day trip are hiking in the Chinchero plateau, a hands-on weaving workshop, visiting a Quechua Andean community and, of course, hiking to the world-renowned ruins of Machu Picchu.
