We just finished our 2 weeks in magical Peru this past Friday and it was absolutely incredible (I hope you were following me day by day on Facebook). One of the things I was struck by was how lucky we are to be able to be with Jorge Luis Delgado, our shaman and guide and how after all this time (10 trips) he really is the real deal. Let me explain:
Debra and Jorge at Machu Picchu
When I decided I wanted to add Peru as another place where we would do Sacred Travel, I did an exploratory trip to Peru in 2004. It was very good, but it wasn’t even close to the trip we do now. The person leading the tour was a very nice man, but he certainly did not have the spiritual authority that I was insisting I wanted to have for our people.
Worse, I began finding out upsetting things about some of the so called “shamans” in Peru. It reminded me of when I started Sedona Soul Adventures. Many healers come to Sedona because it is internationally known as a sacred place and people come here from all over the world. For three years I was coming here to do my own personal healing work (never dreaming that I would start Sedona Soul Adventures one day).
I discovered that just as there are good doctors and bad doctors and good lawyers and bad lawyers there are good healers, mediocre healers and healers who actually do more damage than good. That is one of the reasons that I started Sedona Soul Adventures, is so that everyone who came here would connect only with the most amazing and experienced healers who could truly help them.
Now I found myself in the same situation in my search for a shaman. I discovered (and it broke my heart) to find out that there are lots and lots of people in Peru who call themselves shamans who are a far cry from the kind of spiritual person who I wanted leading my trips. Worse, I discovered that many (not all) had serious drinking and philandering problems. I heard many, many horror stories of women who had gone on a trip who had been approached by a shaman with words like “oh it would be so wonderful for you and I to connect in this special way, but don’t tell anyone else in the group.” Usually, he would be drinking heavily. By the end of the trip, women would start talking and discover that most if not all had experienced the “special connection” with the shaman.
I finally found Jorge through a tour leader who had just retired who had done many trips with Jorge and knew what an amazing person, teacher and leader he is. What a gift! I am forever indebted.
Jorge is the real deal. He not only talks the talk, he walks the talk. He’s also someone who is in the world. He’s married (his wife is an attorney!), he has 3 grown children, he is living every aspect of life, not only the spiritual aspect.
Being in his presence for 2 weeks and absorbing his teachings about love, service and wisdom is truly life changing.
I’m already looking forward to going back next year. If you’d like to join us, make the decision to come on the trip. This year’s trip sold out and, regrettably, there were some people who wanted to come that I had to say no to. I don’t want to say no to you, I want to say yes! So make the decision to join us on the trip – June 17-30, 2017.
We’ll be going to the same magical places — Machu Picchu (for 3 days!), the Sacred Valley, Lake Titicaca (and we’ll do ceremony at the Aramu Muru doorway!), Ollantaytambo and more! Decide now to join us for this trip of a lifetime.

Sedona Soul Adventures – Transforming Lives One Soul At A Time
Lisa Sasevich says the trip to Peru was “the trip of a lifetime” and she is “grateful and transformed”
“If you’re looking for deep and meaningful travel that connects you to other amazing people, takes you way behind the scenes and most important, creates the space for a deep dive into yourself, Debra and Sedona Soul Adventures has it down. Had I attempted to navigate my recent trip to Peru on my own, I’m confident I would have only experienced about 30% of the true magic Peru has to offer. Because the trip was so well organized and our guides were so knowledgeable, we experienced things every day that other travelers, lost on their own or stuffed in a tour bus, never got to see or feel. It was the trip of a lifetime and I am grateful and truly transformed.”
