Heart of the Condor: Andean Wisdom Teachings

With Jhaimy Alvarez Acosta

August 12 - 16, 2020

Connect deeply with your heart and the essence of who you truly are in this transformative retreat with traditional Curandero (Healer) Jhaimy Alvarez-Acosta from Cusco, Péru.

Ground yourself in the ancient wisdom teachings of the Andes while discovering the keys to harmonizing the three bodies: the mind (serpent), body (puma), and soul (condor).

In this intimate program, Jhaimy shares the teachings of his Elders and Ancestors as connected to the Sacred Temples of Péru and the Apus – Mountain Spirits, and how the lessons will be applied to our everyday consciousness. Connecting to our hearts, to Mother Earth, and to the Cosmos through traditional Indigenous knowledge, which has been passed down through generations since time immemorial.

These teachings are a remembrance of Ancestral Consciousness and a gift for the evolution of humanity. Through story, ritual, and a deep reverence for Mother Earth/Pachamama, Jhaimy will weave together a beautiful healing journey for each individual while celebrating the importance of learning together in community.

Heart of the Condor: Andean Wisdom Teachings is an unique experience and transmission of Sacred Knowledge; bringing about harmony, a sense of well-being and inner connection to those who are a part of each gathering.

I’ve had the privilege of working with several shaman and healers from around the world. None surpass the wisdom, love and innate healing skills of Jhaimy Alvarez- Acosta. As a guide and healer on our annual pilgrimage to Machu Picchu, Jhaimy has helped hundreds of our fellow travelers enrich their lives through his sharing of the spiritual teachings of the Andes. – Chip Duncan, filmmaker
