Sacred Nature & Ceremony

We will celebrate Nature, ourselves and Oneness.  

We will participate in authentic Ceremonies performed by paqos or Shamans to honor Mother Earth and celebrate Life. One of the ceremonies we will experience is called, despacho.  A despacho is done with the intention to bring oneself and one’s community into right relationship with the natural world. It creates union and harmony with nature.

An invitation: Participate in the retreat with a full heart and open mind.  Consider celebrating Nature, Life and the gifts you bring to the world.   

Now is the time to know that all that you do is Sacred. ~ Hafiz

Hiking & Adventure

Our local guide will take us to both world-famous UNESCO sites and off-the-beaten-path hidden secrets.  

Some of the hikes and sites we will explore include: Machu Picchu, Moray, Maras, Chinchero, Pisac, and Huchuy Cosqo. We will meander through the Sacred Valley, tracing the steps of the ancient and mysterious Inca. The Sacred Valley is one of the most magical places on Earth and is said to have a high vibrational frequency of healing energy. These hikes are more than physical activity.  In the Valley lies opportunities for you to awake to your inner peace, connection to Earth and love for your deepest self. 

An Invitation: Take this opportunity to move into a harmonious relationship with the natural world.  Walk through the Valley as if your feet were kissing the Earth with each step.

We will hike everyday.  The intensity and duration of the hikes will vary each day.  It is important that you arrive in Peru with health, the ability to walk/hike for 1-5 hours, and a moderate fitness level.

Yoga & Meditation

Daily yoga and meditations led by Sarah Kadel, E-RYT200, RYT500, YACEP©, Reiki II Practitioner, Certified Life Coach & Personal Trainer.

Sarah has trained with teachers of different lineages all over the world.  Her interpretation and expression of yoga embody the Yoga Sutras, modern practicality and the elements of the Earth.  She believes that yoga, pranayama and meditation are tools that can be applied to our daily lives to enrich, enliven and celebrate each day. Sarah weaves the themes of self-love, self-expression, creativity, freedom and the yamas and niyamas in each class.  Her teaching style is where anatomical alignment, intelligent sequencing, ancient wisdom and practical application meet.  You will feel held, support and challenged in her classes.

On the retreat, the Yoga and Meditation sessions will be themed to support the physical, emotional and energetic bodies along the journey.  There will be a lot of hiking, high altitudes, Sacred Ceremonies and Energy work.  Everyone responds to each of these differently.  Expect Sun (heat, intensity) Classes in the morning and Moon (cooling, soothing) classes in the evening.


A note from Sarah: 

Dear Friends, It is important to offer retreats that are economical and sustainable for everyone involved.  I carefully research the perfect location, accommodation and staff for both comfort and sustainability. Some of my personal criteria in searching for the "right place" include: the local people benefited by our tourism, the accommodation is ecologically conscious, and the costs must be fair.  With these self-imposed criteria, I hope to offer a retreat organized in the spirit of Yoga, with the integrity of Unity on the forefront of my mind. On this particular retreat, we will spend the majority of our time at a Peruvian NGO committed to sustainability and educating the local population on farming practices. Our guide is a Quechua man and our Shamans are authentic and local. I also keep the cost of my retreats low so that the retreat experience might be open to all demographics. Now, perhaps more than ever, opening up our hearts and minds to other worlds, people and cultures is an important step toward more harmony, understanding and Love in our lives.  This retreat is about embodying Yoga as unity - creating harmony, peace and balance in our lives through the power of connecting with Nature.  I hope you join me on this once in a lifetime adventure to the Sacred Valley of Peru!

With Love, Gratitude and Respect,

Sarah Kadel
