Andean Wisdom Teachings: Walking the Path of the Heart

With Jhaimy Alvarez Acosta

September 1 - 6, 2024

Immerse yourself in the Indigenous teachings of the Andes during this transformative, expansive and grounding retreat experience with Traditional Andean Wisdomkeeper and Curandero (Healer) Jhaimy Alvarez-Acosta from Cusco, Peru.

The focus of our time together will be to cultivate and deepen our personal relationship to ourselves and the world around us through the sharing of Indigenous teachings, embodied practices, guided meditations and transformative tools designed to facilitate healing and spiritual growth.

Indigenous knowledge provides us with a powerful map and blueprint from which to navigate the monumental times that we are living in. The teachings that Jhaimy will share during this retreat are powerful gifts from the Andean people to support humanity at this pivotal time in our human existence.

“I’ve had the privilege of working with several wisdomkeepers 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 travellers enrich their lives through his sharing of the spiritual teachings of the Andes.” – Chip Duncan, Filmmaker

Each day will focus on one key aspect of the lineage teachings that Jhaimy carries: 

  • Morning sessions will be a time to receive sacred knowledge, wisdom teachings, transformative stories and energetic transmissions from Jhaimy  
  • Afternoons are for deeper exploration and integration with time for personal questions for Jhaimy as you spiral more deeply into the embodiment and application of the teachings in your everyday life. 
  • Evenings will focus on practical tools, guided meditations and healing techniques to further support your personal process.
  • Throughout the experience there will be time and space for rest, connection and integration 

The four key teachings that we will be focused on during this retreat are: 

  • The Andean Principle of Sumaq Causay – Living in a good way with all of existence 
  • The Andean Worldview of Pacha (Time/Space) and Harmonizing the 3 Bodies (Mind/Serpent, Body/Puma and Soul/Condor)
  • Cultivating a Relationship of Reverence with Plant Masters – An Indigenous perspective
  • Connecting to Your Heart and Deepening your Relationship with the World around you

This is a special opportunity to spend extended personal and immersive time with Jhaimy as your guide and is a rare privilege that will truly support you in expanding and deepening your own spiritual path and practice.

This retreat is open to all, with no experience necessary. It may be of particular interest to those who are called to learn more about the Indigenous teachings of the Andes and how to connect more deeply with your heart and Mother Earth in a grounded, empowered and honouring way.

“I highly recommend Jhaimy’s workshops to anyone seeking to expand their knowledge and personal experience of ancient teachings. His teachings and methods are personal and from the heart, drawing from his ancient traditions with openness, sincerity and honouring of the Earth.” – Dorothy
