A Sacred Pilgrimage
Shaman Portal is proud to invite you to make a sacred pilgrimage to the top of the High Andes of Ecuador, 8,307 ft high. You will be staying in the breathtaking Valley of the Dawn surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Imbabura (15,190 ft), Cotacachi (16,388 ft), and Mojanda (13,983 ft) volcanoes.
There, we invite you to meet some of the most renowned and powerful shamans and wisdom keepers of our time. Their formidable indigenous teachings – kept in secret by past generations – will be shared with you for the first time at The Andes Summit. We believe their perspectives, messages, and teachings are utterly important for healing the maladies of our out-of-balance modern lives.
A Promise for the Future
By making this sacred pilgrimage, meeting the shamans and their families in their own environment, you prove to them and the younger generation, that we in the North truly value what they have to give us, and we encourage future generations to follow the practices of their ancestors work.
Be A Part of the New Era
The Andes Summit manifests the arrival of the ancient Inca prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. The new Pachacuti–a period of 500 years of correction of time and space–marks a time when the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South will fly together in peace and harmony in the same clear skies, and see a return of the feminine energies. It is a vision of a new society based on harmony, the honoring of diversity, and a shared evolution toward wisdom and the "subtleness of life."
Connect to the Forces of Nature
These incredible Yachaks (Bird men and women, or Shamans) draw their immense spiritual and healing power from the Apus–Gods–who live in the high-energy volcanic-charged Ring of Fire summits. They intimately connect to Taita Inti (Father Sun), Pachamama (Mother Earth), Mama Killia (Grandmother Moon) and Hatun Pachakamak, the Great Mystery that created us all.
Rejuvenate and Heal Your Body and Soul
According to their families’ traditions, each Shaman practices their medicine differently. Commonly used in the Andes is La Limpia–the mysterious energy cleansing ceremony–the removal of negative energies to heal the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Taki Sami, is the sound vibrational healing method that uses musical instruments and voice. They use different diagnostic reading tools such as candle flame, palm reading or eggs, to accurately tell you about your emotional and physical problems, and how to heal them. The Shamans will prescribe you with herbal teas, special baths and dietary changes for optimal health. You will have the option to explore plant medicine, such as Ayahausca and San Pedro (Huachuma).
A Total Cultural Immersion Experience
You will have the unparalleled opportunity to experience their healing yourself, in the Shamans’ own homes. You will be able to dance, sing and participate in the famed Inti Raimi Solstice celebrations in their villages. You are invited to hike to sacred lakes and waterfalls, visit an ancient Sun Temple, pyramids and bustling markets.
