Spiritual Pilgrimage to the Inca Apus

join to remember!

For those of you who are sensitive to what is happening in the world and would like to focus on contributing your light through your own spiritual advancement, Luciana has created Pilgrimage to the Inca Apus.

On one end, according to the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) Statement, the past five years were the warmest on record, with the global average surface temperature in 2018 approximately 1°C above the pre-industrial baseline. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) found that limiting global warming to 1.5°C will require rapid and far-reaching transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities, and that global net human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide need to fall by about 45% from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching "net-zero" around 2050. Earth is losing animal species at 1,000 to 10,000 times the natural rate; in May, a UN report estimated that one million animal and plant species were threatened with extinction. We are the only specie who has achieved to destroy a living planet.

Also, with the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus across the world, causing New Coronavirus, Covid-19, we as a specie, have been threatened in our primitive survival beliefs and needs for almost two years.

Recently, Russia has declared war on Ukraine, which has created a world alert and nearby countries prepare to receive a large wave of war refugees as immigrants of all ages. 

This clearly underlines the need for urgent shifts on public health, economy, and climate change, but also on our level of consciousness and awareness of trauma: we need to wake up and reassess the ancient ways, remembering we co-exist in interdependence with other communities and with Nature.

This pilgrimage is a call to action.

The Apus, Earth's guardians, and Pachamama, or Mother Earth, are talking to all of us who dare to listen. Have you received the call?

Back to Nature ~ Remember the ancient ways

A couple of years ago, Luciana received a message from the Apus (Spirit living in mighty mountains, guardians of Pachamama): she was to organize the first Pilgrimage to the Inca Apus, the same Apus she learned from for 2 years, including Machu Picchu. Since then, she has been waiting for the appropriate time to bring it to life, while putting together -with the permission of her Q’ero family- her first book on how she became a Ñusta.

And now, humbly answering the call, as an initiated Ñusta by her P’aqo (teacher) Eduardo from the Andean Q'ero tradition, she has organized a Pilgrimage for those who would like to sit with some of these mighty Apus, acknowledge their work, listen to their messages for our daily lives and the communities each belong to, pay your respect, thank them for their service to Pachamama and all living beings (us humans included), give to and receive from these Spirits of the Land, and ask for their guidance. “They are super old and wise —she says— some of our first, wise ancestors!

About this Pilgrimage ~

During 7 days Luciana will gather with all the participants in celebration through dancing, singing, eating raw ecological food, and joining in ceremony, to pay homage to our first ancestors: Apus and Pachamama, and remember the ancient ways. These Spirits of the Land were here long before we did and many of our modern cultures have forgotten we were never meant to live separated from each other.

Peru's glaciers spread over19 snow-capped mountain ranges. These glaciers are the source of the vast majority of the country's drinking water. They also account for 70% of the world's tropical glaciers, which are especially sensitive to warming temperatures. A study of 9 glacier valleys in one of these, Cordillera Blanca in Ancash, found that 7 had already reached the “peak water” point, which means less water for farming or drinking during the dry season. Their melting has also exposed mineral-rich rocks to the elements for the first time in thousands of years, so with every rainfall, trace metals and minerals wash into streams and rivers, which poses a threat to human and animal health, affecting irrigation and potable water systems.

Apus, sacred glaciers, are asking us to remember the ancient ways because within each of us lives the same spark of life that is present in all living beings, and each spark is needed in this time of change.

Join us! ~

2022: From July 27th to August 3rd

Humbly answering the call, Luciana will be holding sacred space for you, from the inner integration of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine as complementary Earth energies, and the outer integration in Apus and Pachamama; by walking by your side while you heal the trauma that has made you believe in separateness, so you can re-connect with your ancestors all the way back to these Spirits of the Land, allowing your Soul to remember your spiritual mission, which is very much needed during this critical time on Earth.

During this 7 day Pilgrimage, Luciana will guide you on a visit to some of the Apus she continuously learns from in Cusco, very much like visiting relatives, including Machu Picchu, as well as co-create together a "Despacho" offering for Pachamama, holding space for your personal, unique discoveries along the way, about yourSelf, about Spirit living in humans, animals, plants, and minerals alike, and the culture of the land you will explore.

Your initial purpose for joining this Pilgrimage can be many things, from self-discovery, to personal achievement, including mingling with like-minded souls. But remember, if you choose to follow the call, your true purpose might not be clear until reflection upon completion of the journey! 

By connecting with Spirit inside you, Spirits of the Land: Apus and Pachamama, healing soul trauma, and clearing ancestral shadows, Luciana hopes to contribute with your stepping-up to honor your call for this lifetime.

If these words resonate with you in any way, this Spiritual Pilgrimage to the Inca Apus, along with its healing opportunities, is being held for you. Dare to remember and step up to fulfill your destiny --we all need you!

If you are feeling the call, and are ready to allow healing from within, book your Pilgrimage to the Inca Apus now:

Disclaimer: Luciana was initiated as a Ñusta in the Q'ero Andean Tradition, considering her resources and background, by her now spiritual family the Chura-Apaza community living in the Andes, to whom she is deeply grateful, especially with her teacher, P'aqo Eduardo. She does not intend, in any way, to replace their teachings as it would be impossible --Q'ero hold ancient wisdom passed from generation to generation for centuries, they are the Earth Keepers from this part of the world. This Pilgrimage is her answer to her own personal and spiritual call, as this benefits those seeking for healing and spiritual guidance. This pilgrimage does not include P'aqo or Ñusta initiations as only Q'ero have the knowledge and experience to offer these.
