Every year a group of wild childs from all over the world, choose to elevate their consciousness, raise their vibe and connect to ancient Andean traditions to bless their path through our “Shamanic Expedition”. THIS is the trip of a lifetime.
Our Shamanic Expedition gives you the once in a lifetime opportunity to connect to the Andean shamanic medicine and the traditional Q’ero shamans.
The Q’eros are keepers of ancient wisdom, sacred traditions, and powerful energy medicine. Through their simple, nature-oriented ways, we will be able to connect to our deepest truth and open the doors for an abundant future.
Spending time with these shamans is a complete blessing and a not-so-easy to find privilege. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky here at AWAKENED WILD CHILD to be in connection to Guillermo Soncco and his family which is a carrier of the traditional lineage.
This trip will take place in CUSCO, PERU on NOVEMBER 2ND – NOVEMBER 8TH 2018. The intention of this trip is to have you go through a powerful life transformation by receiving shamanic rituals, initiations, and breathtaking tours/experiences.
This trip doesn’t include flights, accommodation or meals (only the ones explained below).
Peru is a considered a dream destination for people from all over the world due to the ancient/ sacred sites, the beautiful natural landscapes, their world-renowned cuisine and colorful culture.
We have designed this trip to fit the expectations, budgets, and timelines of everybody wishing to come along.
Awakened Wild Child will be taking care of the expedition itself, meaning all the shamanic activities, rituals, and adventures.
This expedition will take place from NOV. 2ND – NOV. 8, however, we encourage everybody to add some additional days to their trip and take care of their personal preferences like visiting Machu Pichu, the markets, Pisaq, Rainbow Mountains etc. which are not included in our schedule.
Arrival. Everybody will be getting enough time to settle in, get comfy in their hotels/hostels and walk around the Plaza de Armas. Just by walking around you’ll be able to get a feel for Peru, it’s radiant culture and kind people. As we do this, we’ll allow our bodies to get used to the heights. Having Coca Leaf Tea is recommended to ease the effects of the heights. Wild Childs will be arriving at different times of the day. 8 PM – Official Opening @ Plaza de Armas, Cuzco
On this day, we will prepare for our rituals. Guillermo will guide us into the deepest rural markets in Cuzco to buy the flowers, offerings, seeds, and herbs we will need for the rituals. This is a really cool experience as we get to feel first hand how different Peru is from our usual city environments. It’s a great day for shopping and preparation for the most adventurous part of our expedition. Additional activities this day could include visiting the Cacao Chocolate Store near the plaza which allows you to taste special recipes made with this medicinal plant and other superfoods.
Visit Quillaromiyok – This is a day trip to the beautiful mountain and natural reserve QUILLAROMIYOK (located about 1 hour from Cuzco) Guillermo will introduce us to a special cave in which he finds great peace for rituals, ceremonies, and initiations. The energy here is very powerful. We will be getting there on a bus and the ride will allow us to see different panoramas from Cusco. There we will receive our first initiation and as a group, we’ll do our first DESPACHO (manifestation ritual).
Early in the morning we will be picked up by a private bus and begin our journey to Ausangate, one of the most sacred spots in Cusco only a few manage to see. This day will include a 2-hour bus ride, 2-hour horse ride deep into the freezing Peruvian mountains up until we reach Ausangate. This part of the trip is considered challenging. Be ready for the most breathtaking views and sore muscles due to the long horse ride in which we will be crossing small rivers and going up and down many hills as we explore the meaning of existence and life. This is the highlight of our trip. Once we’re there, the crew will create the camping space and get it ready with our tents, a kitchen tent and a space for the rituals. Sleep at Ausangate (camping)
Wake up to a majestic view of the snowy Ausangate mountain and Lagoon, have breakfast and go through another Karpay (Initiation Ritual). Those who want to go through the “baptism” in the Otorongo Macho Lagoon, will have the opportunity to do so as well (more information below). Head all the way back to Cusco, get some nice warm dinner and sleep early
In the afternoon we will be visiting the Q’ero community and getting to know Guillermo’s Father Humberto Soncco. We will see how the women create the textiles and their internationally known portable altars. Here we will have a beautiful opportunity to share with the kids from the community, purchase textiles and one of a kind items as well as get to know Humberto Soncco, which is considered one of the wisest and most powerful shamans within the lineage.
Some wild childs will be leaving this day, others will choose to stay longer. As a group, we will be visiting another sacred spot called SACSAYHUAMAN, often visited by many practitioners seeking a beautiful, calm and energizing spot for rituals. Here, we will be receiving our final blessings for our path ahead.
“I’ve traveled a lot and visited a lot of magical places, but this trip truly shifts something within you. It’s the most powerful experience I’ve ever had.”– Katie
In essence, everything that will be received from the Q’ero Shamans is considered as powerful blessings, protections and boosts for our personal connection to nature, the divine and ourselves.
In Andean Medicine, they have very beautiful and specific methods to bring to life desires, dreams and manifestations. By going through this Shamanic Expedition, you can be sure your life will never be the same. You will come back to your normal reality and see how slowly, everything around you will become better. You will find yourself feeling happier, more inspired and motivated. You will find the universe, very subtly, bringing to you new opportunities, better surroundings and dreams come true.
These rituals will shift your vibration powerfully, from wherever you’re at into the highest vibrational frequency your body can comfortably sustain. These rituals DO NOT involve plant medicine or the ingestion of any substances. Instead, the Karpays (rituals) will happen through energy transmissions directly from the Q’ero Shaman guiding our journey, Guillermo Soncco.
Each Karpay has a different intention and empowers our energy system in a different way. Each Karpay goes paired up with a “Despacho”. Despachos are incredibly powerful ways to honor Mother Earth and thank the universe for the blessings bestowed upon us. Despachos are also considered powerful manifestation tools. In Andean Medicine, Despachos are created as a group offering which holds the wishes and desires of each participant of the group. When done with love, dedication, and belief, it is said every wish will be granted to you by Mother Earth, the Universe, and the Cosmos.
I have personally found this to be true and every year, my most sincere wishes get fulfilled thanks to these rituals and my openness to take the opportunity the Universe allows in my life.
Through these rituals, you will be able to protect your family, heal minor disease, find your purpose, bring in opportunities, financial abundance and love. There is a very intricate method behind this seemingly “superstitious” act, I have found after years of study.
The Despachos contemplate many aspects of the human psyche, the unconscious mind, the power of our spoken word, intention setting, the law of attraction and many many other aspects which come together to create the perfect recipe for a magical manifestation.
Seeing traditional shamans go through with the creations of these Despachos, as it is, is an incredibly beautiful moment to witness, filled with intimacy, love, and trust.
