Spiritual Cleansing & Offering to Mother Earth & Coca Leaf Reading
This unique experience was designed for travelers who would like to experience authentic Andean culture and traditions. Three ceremonies will be performed, all done by Chinchero Nation Master specialized in different areas of healing. The three ceremonies are a Cleansing Ceremony, a Coca Leaf Reading Ceremony, and an Offering to Pachamama, the Earth Mother. Traditional Andean ceremonies such as these have been practiced since before the time of the Inca Empire and their Quechua culture. Participating in these Andea.
We will pick you up from your hotel and travel to chinchero: a small town site located just outside Cusco is 45 min. from Cusco in the small spiritual village of Chinchero. All the ceremonies are presided over by our Masters. Each is specially chosen by Andina family to follow their profession. The Chinchero Masters, they are the closest living descendants of the Incas and still maintain many of their ancient traditions.
To begin, the master must start with a Cleansing Ceremony. In our ceremony, it is used to clean the negative energies from your body. The Master creates a cover of sage over you while saying a prayer in his native Quechua language. It is quite a moving experience.
Next is the Coca Leaf Reading Ceremony. The master will start by asking questions regarding your home life, health, family, friends and occupation. The master will say a prayer to the mountains with his satchel of coca leaves held high above his head. He next places them down on a flat surface and gently opens the blanket. The placement of the leaves is his direct insight into your past, present, and future. This is a long-standing practice in Andean culture and a one-of-a-kind experience.
The final and most important ceremony is the Offering to Pachamama. Pachamama is the Andean word for Mother Earth. We give thanks to Pachamama for our crops and everything we have by putting our intentions back into the earth below. This is done through the prayer of the master and his pouch of sacred Andean offerings. All are symbolic of aspects such as protection of travel and relationships, occupational success, and many more. The master, with the help of the translator, will go over each offering and its significance in Andean culture before wrapping them all up to go into the bonfire.Once all three ceremonies have finished, our private transport you back to your hotel.
