Stay a little longer and contribute to our first project with

Journey to the Heart of Children

JUNE 29th – JULY 7th

Journey to the Heart of Children is a Nonprofit organization under Conscious Acts of Kindness a 501c nonprofit in the US.

The idea is to help children all over the world, not by giving money but by providing beds, furniture, books, blankets, building a playground or whatever they may need in the country or community that we as a group travel to. A part $200 of this trip will be used for that purpose. You are invited to stay with us and help with whatever is needed. This we can say is the action that we can take and it’s a conscious act of love, kindness and compassion.

The energies have sifted from the Himalayas to the Andes, from the patriarchal dominated world to the feminine Divine that is within us all. Come join us and create the energetic imprint that will impact your lives cycles for the next 26,000 years. What you do in 2021 will set the rhythm of your personal evolution, it is as if we are a newborn babe setting up the matrix of what is to come……

Ernesto Ortiz and Journey to the Heart team

Noted artist, author and healer, Ernesto Ortiz has devoted his life to exploring and communicating the language of the heart, primal movement and deep inner spaces. Over the past 25 years, Ernesto has taken thousands of people on a journey from physical and emotional inertia to the freedom of ecstasy, from the chaos of the chattering ego-mind to the blessed emptiness of stillness and inner silence.

His training began as young child in Mexico with Shamans and Curanderos and has continued all over the world with world renowned teacher as well as unknown shamans. His training is vast, from Transpersonal Psychology, bodywork, Shamanism Dance Therapy and more…

For me, a trip to Peru represents the return to the Mother, this is a gift to align all our energies with what make our lives unique. Pachamama could be translated as the Mother of the World. Peru It is the ideal place to prepare us vibrationally for the energies of 2021 and beyond. Our, bodies, our hearts and our spirits will be connected deeply to the Mother, to be reborn again, using ritual, dance, mantras, toning, and meditation.

Receive Shamanic Initiations in the same places where the Incas received theirs from Don Ernesto and Peruvian Shamans

Peru is a very important place for Shamanic initiation for everyone. All people that are interested in personal spiritual development should go to Peru at least once.

This trip is going to be powerful a Psychospiritual Integration journey that will help you with the vibrational adjustments that we are going through for 2021 and beyond.

Time is critical now that we have passed through the funnel of December 21st 2012. The next few years up to 2022 will be a determining factor of what your contribution will be to the upliftment of consciousness of the planet. However all of it starts with YOU!!

How are you handling your emotions? Are you in alignment with your Divine Plan? Do you know that you are actually fulfilling your Dharma, your life plan? Are you conscious? What is the condition of your mind? Are you constantly going to the past? and not fully present, in the present. Are you willing to explore the depths of your psyche to become the best person you can be and from that perspective give the best that you can to the world?

If the answer is yes, to any of these; then you must give yourself the gift first before you give it to others.


We are the children, we are the elders, we are the past, we are the future, we are the mystics, and the shamans, we are the priest and priestesses, and we are the ancestors that carry the wisdom and the knowledge of the past.


This trip will have many elements that will deeply connect you to the Pachamama and give you a true crystalline coat of light to be protected and have your vibration up to the maximum so you can truly be there, be present.

If you come you are not going to regret it!!

You owe it to yourself; you owe it to the world. Get ready!!

Hello Ernesto,
I thank you for mantras and for this magnificent stay in Peru. After a “period of rehabilitation” and reentry to my daily life, I still feel the benefit of this journey. I feel a bigger opening of my heart and an enjoyment constantly; a sweet peace is now a part integral of my being. The “common theme” is, life is beautiful, and I appreciate it every the moment. See you soon, for new adventures.

With all my love

Dear Ernesto,
I want to thank you so much for encouraging me to come to the extension. WHAT A SPECIAL EXPERIENCE I felt the strings of suffering from my former husband have dissolved from him to me and my children. Now I am ready for a new relationship of love with a new partner. During the plant medicine I felt your loving presence and a bond of light between us, SO POWERFUL.  It is a pleasure for me to walk in silence beside you, nothing to do, nowhere to go, just be … Sending my deepest love.



Dear Ernesto,
What a beautiful intense journey we experienced!! Since I’m here in France again, nearly every night during dreamtime I return to Peru, and especially to Machu Picchu, where we had the beautiful opening heart ceremony – it is strange how real it feels!!! You are in my heart and all these precious moments shared, the deep connections, the fun, all the sharing from soul to soul is precious to me like sparkling diamonds inside.
Through the connection and translation for you, I grow each time a bit more and recall my essence as a child of light. Thank you ever so much for being in my life! In Joy of meeting you again soon…

Tina H
