“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 2025 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”.

If you feel earth’s change, then join us in this powerful experiment, become the instrument of Divine and return home radiating the Light and the Love to your community and the world.

Receive Shamanic Initiations in the same places where the Incas
received theirs from Don Ernesto and other 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 happening in the world now.

Time is critical now that we have passed through the funnel of December 21st, 2012, many have forgotten that we are still building the future cycle. The next few years up to 2030 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 receive yourself the gift, before you give it to others.

WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR. 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 mindful and present.

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

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

Dear 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.

Elizabeth, Canada


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…
