Yoga and workshops led by Tonya Johnson
Native Despacho Ceremony - Led by a Shaman from the indigineous Quechua tribe, a despacho is a prayer bundle or offering of gratitude to Mother Earth (Pacha Mama) & Mountain Spirits; a focused, formal way to "dispatch" your prayers off to the powers that be. Despacho rituals are designed to align, balance and harmonize the three levels of consciousness: Yankay (the physical universe), Yachay (the spirit or wisdom center), and Munay (the feeling or heart center). The despacho holds symbolic elements and the prayers of the participants. As the elements are added to the despacho, the vibration of the participants and the room raises. The despacho becomes a living prayer that brings energy shifts and healing. The ceremony is concluded by burning the despacho bundle over a bonfire conveying the gifts to Spirit
Sound Healing Bath - Everything in the universe has a vibrational frequency. The practitioner uses musical instruments like singing bowls, gong, flute and others in specific rhythms and frequencies to downshift your brain from the beta state (normal consciousness) to the theta state (relaxed consciousness) and even the delta state (where internal healing can occur).
Hike around the Sacred Valley - Explore Samadhi’s beautiful mountainous backyard, the local farms and the nature that surrounds it
A visit to the local market of Pisac for shopping where indigenous Quechua communities from the surrounding highlands come to sell their products
