Spiritual Cleansing & Offering to Mother Earth & Coca Leaf Reading
The Spiritual Cleaning and Offering to Mother Earth is a ceremony highly recommended for travelers who need inner peace, answers to their future plans and above all to thank Mother Earth for giving them health, family peace and good luck. But something important to keep in mind, the ceremony of offering to Mother Earth should be done with much respect.
The reading of the coca leaf is a unique experience for those who really want to know the authentic Andean culture and traditions. In this opportunity there will be three ceremonies, all of them performed by the Master of the Nation Chinchero specialized in different areas of healing. The three ceremonies are a Cleaning Ceremony, a Coca Leaf Reading Ceremony and an Offering to Pachamama, Mother Earth. Traditional Andean ceremonies like these have been practiced since before the time of the Inca Empire and its Quechua culture.
The ceremony of reading coca leaves is an ancestral practice that today the people of the Andes still practice it to make the best decisions.
Spiritual cleansing, Offering to Mother Earth and Coca Leaf Reading are not common or pagan ritual customs. They are ceremonies that help to channel the spirit (inner peace), answer your greatest doubts about your destiny and an offering to nature for everything it gives you in your existence.
The three ceremonies can be performed during your tour of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, sacred land par excellence. Unlike the San Pedro sessions or Ayahuasca retreats, to perform the spiritual cleansing and offering to mother earth you do not need previous preparations.
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.
