At Sacred Valley Expeditions, we want to help change the world one expedition at a time. We move beyond eco-travel, we move beyond adventure travel, we embrace Visionary Travel. Visionary travel is an outer and inner journey that heals, transforms and allows those who are ready for it, and experience it , a vehicle to grow and thrive through their sacred journeys. We strive to meld the alchemy of science, spirit and Ayni (reciprocity in Quechuan) in a measured experience that will shake your mind and touch your heart. Our expeditions are like no other travel experience on the planet, as we strive to take our inner journeys, inner experiences and integrate those into shifting our personal models of the world we live in for a larger awareness of each other, our communities and our planet.
Slated for July 12-25 of 2015, Expedition 2 will be highlighting a powerful and sacred journey to the sister cities of Machu Picchu and Choquequirao. Choquequirao, “The Cradle of God”, is only about 30 kilometers from Machu Picchu, however currently there are no roads into the site and is only accessible by a two day trail hike. Thus typically only a handful of people visit the site daily allowing one to really appreciate the power and magic of this monumental Inca city. Moreover, while we are at Choquequirao we will conducting a full day San Pedro ceremony thus further activating the sacred powers of this special site.
Time is running out
The Peruvian government has plans to install an aerial tramway from the nearest road designed to transport visitors to the city in as little as 15 minutes. Tramway construction is slated to tentatively begin in 2016 and after it is completed it is estimated that thousands of visitors will journey to the site yearly. Thus, if one wants a tranquil and unfettered experience of Choquequirao we will have to hurry as time is running short to access this site without the huge crowds that Machu Picchu experiences. Please visit our Choquequirao itinerary page for prices and for more details on this special expedition.
Finally, each expedition that we embark on includes a chance to give back to the indigenous communities of Cusco and the Sacred Valley in direct Ayni (reciprocity in Quechuan). We will visit and participate in direct action reciprocity to our local community partners or charitable partners in either Cusco or the Sacred Valley providing much needed assistance to the lives of the peoples that make Peru and the Andes so special and sacred.
During our Expedition 1 our team visited and assisted with donations and supplies to the Ninos del Sol orphanage in Urubamba. This very moving experience touched deeply everyone on our expedition team and we have intensions to continues our partnership with Ninos del Sol in future retreats and expeditions. Also during Expedition 1, we worked with the Revivolution Network in constructing a dry composting toilet for a Q’eros family in Cusco. This act of direct Ayni greatly improved the conditions of our cooperative Q’eros family with basic sanitation that so many poor indigenous families lack in the area.
On Expedition 2 we will be offering an extension to our main expedition that will have our team continuing our work building dry composting toilets for needy Q’eros families in Cusco. We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Revivolution Network to make this a reality. So please, if you value reciprocity as much as we do consider adding our optional extension to your sacred journey to Choquequirao.

We were able to have a brief interview with Danny, a Q’ero Shaman apprentice , while he was holding a Wachuma ceremony at the Mountain House above Cusco in Peru. Danny proved to be a great interview with his humble nature and knowledge of shamanism. I left the interview fairly uncut as I wanted to capture Danny’s essence and peaceful demeanor. Lara and I were both spellbound and in awe during and after the interview and hopefully that comes through in the film.
