The Awakening – Peru 2012 with Dr. Alberto Villoldo
Healing, Ceremony, and Transformation in the Sacred Valley
Presented by the Four Winds Society and Great Mystery
Every year the Four Winds offers journeys to Peru, but 2012 is different. Our shamans and I have agreed to perform the rites and ceremonies that they reserve for themselves only. You will have the chance to experience wisdom teachings and subtle energies that are ready to be unleashed and shared for 2012 and the legendary 'Pachakuti,' the completion of the cycle of time we are living in, and the start of a new era.
Our base for the Via Illuminata will be a comfortable hotel in the Sacred Valley an hour from Cusco, the former capital of the Inka Empire. Every day you will depart with a small group accompanied by your guides and shamans to work intimately in one of the archeological sites, and in the evening participate in healing ceremonies led by our shamans. During our journey you will celebrate and understand the Pachakuti, or 'turning over of the world.' For the shamans this is not an intellectual understanding that you can acquire from reading a book or listening to a lecture. It is a cellular experience, a direct cognition that occurs during the process of the initiations you will receive. 2012 is the year we have been waiting for!
—Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D

In daily evening talks Alberto presents the history of the Inka, the origins of the wisdom traditions of the Americas, the Prophecies of 2012, and the sacred geometry and astronomy that informed the ancient builders of Machu Picchu.
