The Travel Adventure in a Nutshell

Machu Picchu
The ruins of Machu Picchu, rediscovered in 1911, by Yale archaeologist Hiram Bingham, are one of the most beautiful and enigmatic ancient sites in the world. While the Inca people certainly used the Andean mountain top erecting many hundreds of stone structures, from the early 1400’s, legends and myths indicate that Machu Picchu (meaning ‘Old Peak’ in the Quechua language) was revered as a sacred place from a far earlier time.

Machu Picchu seems to have been utilized by the Inca as a secret ceremonial city.

For more info about Machu Picchu:

https://sacredsites.com/americas/peru/machu_picchu.html

Let the adventure begin!

Some people say that the best way to rediscover your true self and freedom is to travel as much and as widely as you can. Why is this? What happens when we move that makes us feel more free and happier?

It has to do with the unknown! When we go, especially in countries with the culture very different from the culture we were brought up and see new places and faces, when everything is brand new, the mind stops. Nothing is the way we are used to be, so the mind can not follow its usual patterns and habitual behaviour.

This adventure is a spiritual one as much as an external one! The essence of this trip is for you to overcome any fear that you might have at any level, spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual, to gain back your power and finally set yourself free!

In the midst of coming back home to yourself, have fun and meet new friends!

The Trip will be guided by Spiritual Teacher, Shaman & Healer Northern Deer Alexander, founder of the WORLD OF WISDOM & SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE COMMUNITY.

He will help each of you to receive the maximum benefit, from this experience, and awaken your true essence.

The trip will include practices for the awakening of the inherent part of ourselves which is the true being that we are!

The spiritual practices
LIFE IS A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY

There is no way to separate a trip, a journey to a faraway country without having a spiritual experience. For such a big trip the spirit and the intention are huge as well!!

Our attention is to enjoy life, expand our awareness and self-knowledge, become excited from our experiences which will lead to be more alive and also learn something important and valuable in the way that we can carry with us, inside us, in our memories in our actions and in our hearts. Our purpose in this journey is to experience these transformative moments as consciously as we can so that this trip will not be only an excellent memory but a way to remember our selves and return back reborn! The spirit under which we operate and the presence of a spiritual teacher together with us during all days ensure that the energy of our experience will be many times deeper than what is the external journey and activity!

Furthermore, in this trip, we will connect with ancient knowledge and global wisdom of ancient worlds one of which is the world of the Incas of Peru which we will be visiting. So the opportunity presents itself to have a great spiritual Journey and pilgrimage!
We will have interesting talks, topics of transformation of the different parts of our lives (health, relationships and the psychological aspect of how we experience our daily lives)
