There is a very certain magic about the Sacred Valley of Peru. As you fly over these majestic lands you may find yourself looking down into pools of turquoise lakes nestled in the tops of mountains. The magic continues on the ground from the cobblestone streets engulfed by ancient ruins in all directions, a calming river rolls through the center of this dreamlike town.
Join Us this Journey of a Lifetime!
Get immersed in nature, culture and community connection while tending to your health and vitality!
BEAUTIFY OUR LIVES ACTION DAYS: The service portion of our Ollantaytambo Retreat is dedicated to Señora Sara Luz. Sara is the village's local medicine woman, she runs a juice shop during the day and in the evenings she is in prayer and ceremony. A single mother who built her home completely out of recycled materials, she provides for herself, son and mother.
I spent many days with Sara this past spring filming for the docuseries that started this all and she taught me quite a lot. In that time she also shared her vision to one day open a healing center on her land where she could continue to share with her community and travelers the teachings and practices of her ancestors.
She is creating a hub for health, culture and spiritual development. I just spoke with Sara recently to begin organizing this gathering and she informed me that they've just begun preparing the land to build a small, functional adobe kitchen. So this trip our retreat goers, volunteers and community members will come together to learn hands-on how to build an traditional Inca style adobe structure.
* please note: the terrain is rough through most of the areas we will be exploring, please take this into consideration if you have any mobility issues.
Intentional self-growth is a form of healing and a rite of passage. It is also something we at the Natural Leaders Foundation find fundamental for the strength & sustainability of rising small communities, especially those that have been systematically overlooked for generations. Through interactive, unexpectedly fun exercises we unravel the power & the simple process of holding space for ourselves, our loved ones & our local communities.
SELF-CARE & THE GIFT PRESENCE
We will deepen our inner-standing of how the body often allows stagnate emotions to stick & how to practically transform those old patterns & devaluing habits into empowering tools for self development. Reconnect with your most loved forms of expression and rise up to gift yourself creative liberation through pure presence. Say Yes to Your Unique Genius- transform old stories into quantum fuel for creation!
Join us in reconnecting with our original design & purpose as humans, tending to our Great Mother Earth. Through daily hands-on action we will immerse ourselves in caring for our sacred ecosystems & the people who live tending to them. Experience the reciprocal nature of the universe in real-time through a live exchange of unconditional love & service.
