I think a picture really is worth 1000 words. I was going through pictures of this years’ Peru and Machu Picchu trip, and the pictures definitely say it all. Look at the happiness on Selena’s face on our first day at Machu Picchu. This is such a dream come true for so many people. You can just hear her saying “Yes!”
And I love this picture of Jorge and I at Machu Picchu. What a joy to be there and to be in his presence for 2 weeks.
Jorge Luis Delgado is our shaman and guide during this amazing journey. You might know him from the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens; he’s in 9 episodes speaking about the incredible mysteries of the Andes and Lake Titicaca. Doing ceremonies with him, learning his teachings, and just being in his presence is such a treasure.
Here are more fun pictures. Glen dressed as a fox, giving me presents from the group on our last night. They gave me the most beautiful necklace and earrings from Lake Titicaca and a recreation of a chulpa from Sillustani, complete with small stones they had all collected for offerings (I didn’t even notice what they were doing!).
Here’s my husband, Richard, at Ollantaytambo. Can you feel the energy of this amazing place? Some people feel that Ollantaytambo is in some ways as incredible as Machu Picchu. The combination of the energy and the water here are so fantastic.
And here’s the group in front of Aramu Muru, the Doorway to Other Dimensions that was discovered by Jorge Luis. To do ceremony at this place with Jorge is so amazing.
And this year one of the members of our group, Jill, played the crystal bowls while we were doing the ceremony there. It was other-worldly.
So, as promised, here are the 3 Very Specific Reasons why you should go on our Peru and Machu Picchu trip:
Is that not enough? Because it truly is incredible, amazing, and life-changing. And every year I struggle with figuring out how to really convey that to you.
So here’s a little more:
So I hope those reasons – it’s incredible, amazing, and life-changing – conveys it all to you. If not, there’s lots of information on our website – just click here.

Suzanne says the Peru trip is “amazing” and “life-changing”
“The Sedona Soul Adventures Peru Trip was AMAZING! It is my second Sedona Soul Sacred Travel trip and it, like the first (to Egypt), was life-changing. The magic of Machu Picchu, the peacefulness of Lake Titicaca, the energy of the Apu mountain spirits is not something you can read about – it must be experienced!
On this trip, we had the privilege of being in the presence of Jorge Luis Delgado, our Peruvian Shaman and Chacaruna (bridge person – messenger of light) who is an extraordinary guide, teacher and spiritual Master. I have been on my spiritual journey for approximately 10 years now, and I have learned and experienced many things, but Jorge had an incredible way of saying thing in such simple powerful ways, it was like I was learning them again for the first time.
I experienced with him the power of oral tradition – that it isn’t just the words that he spoke, but it was the energy and intention he imbued into his words that is the specialness of oral tradition. It is that energy which touches you and teaches you. He reaches you heart to heart, rather than from your mind. He led me on a Pilgrimage to my Inner Sun that deepened my commitment to a higher level of consciousness, that increased my understanding of the Cosmos and its wonder, and that fueled my desire to shine brightly in the world. I will be forever grateful for this trip and the positive impact it had on my life.”

I hope to see you on this amazing journey. Is this the year you give yourself the gift of Machu Picchu?
One of the themes of the teachings that we receive while we are here in Peru – from our shaman and guide, Jorge Luis Delgado – is about “connecting with the Light.” He talks to us about connecting with Father Sun; he teaches us about walking in the light; and he talks extensively about the light that is within each of us and how important it is for us to let that light shine.
And I’ve been struck on this trip at how many times there have been interesting beams of light that have shown up in our photos. The one above is of Jorge walking through a gateway in Pisac, an ancient Inca ceremonial site. Can you see the beam of light at the top right hand side of the photo? I took photos of everyone walking through that doorway, but Jorge’s was the only one that had that beam of light.
But the next one that was startling was this one. We were in an underground ceremonial cave that is on the grounds of Jorge’s incredibly beautiful hotel in Urubamba. The place is unbelievable — in addition to being incredibly beautiful, it has mountains on one side and the Urubamba river on the other, and it’s built on sacred ground. They discovered this underground cave that is completely dark except for one hole in the top, where at certain times of the day, the sun comes in just in a certain way. Jorge had me stand under the hole and I couldn’t feel anything, but everyone was oohing and aahing, and here was this picture. Unbelievable!
The next day, we were at the spectacular Temple of Ollantaytambo. The energy there is simply amazing – in fact, for me, the energy there is even more intense than in Machu Picchu. I took this photo of Richard against the mountain and suddenly there was this beam of light. It almost looks like a waterfall, but it isn’t, it’s simply light. I took another one and it wasn’t there. Jorge had just been talking about our Inner Sun and how we can use that Inner Sun that we all have, to connect with each other, with ourselves, and with the Cosmos.
Yesterday we were in Urco, which is a site that is so ancient no one really knows exactly what it was used for. It is pre-Incan. But it is obvious from the stonework and the energy that this is a sacred ceremonial place. We did a special ceremony here to bring up the energy of Pacha Mama (Mother Earth) into our hearts. After the ceremony, Richard and I were lying on the grass talking, and Rick Reynolds (our wonderful Angel Guide who is also on the trip with us) took this picture without us knowing about it. He just thought it was a sweet picture and then we saw this incredible beam of light. And it looks like it’s going straight to my heart! I also love the look of love that is in both of our eyes. Peru certainly fills you up with love.
Yesterday we came back from our amazing overnight visit to the island of Amantani (which is in the middle of Lake Titicaca), where we stayed with a local family. It is always so special to be with them. I am god-mother to their son, Anthony, and we always do the most spectacular ceremony there. As we were walking back to our boat, I was just filled with so much gratitude, and took what I thought was just a simple photo of the Lake. Instead, this beautiful beam of light appeared in the photo. Again, I couldn’t see it, it was there when I took the photo.
It’s so interesting. It feels like these beams of light show up when I’m filled with love or gratitude, or feeling the special energy of these sacred places. Almost like it’s God winking at me in some way. I know the rational explanation is that it’s just some refraction of light that shows up when the camera is held a certain way, but I’m not that interested in the rational explanation. I’m more interested in the explanation that has to do with light and love and gratitude and energy. How about you?

“The entire trip was fantastic, I would recommend to anybody if they want to go to Peru this is the kind of vacation to take. In the future I won’t be able to travel any other way- – it’s so much more meaningful to bond with the group, sharing a spiritual purpose, with a wonderful guide. You have the best of all possible worlds, all your daily needs met, no worries about train schedules or hotel reservations, and the benefit of a guide that is supporting your spiritual path. I didn’t want to leave Machu Picchu…”
Sedona Soul Adventures
In the last few years the world has been buzzing about the discoveries of the Lost Pyramids at Caral, Peru. Caral has been brought into my awareness 3 times in the past 7 days, so I think that’s a message that I’m supposed to pass this information to you.
Many archeologists (and others) now believe that Caral is the oldest site of civilization on the planet (Jericho was previously thought to be the oldest).
The picture above is over the main Pyramid in the incredible complex at Caral that includes Pyramids, an amphitheatre and houses. The Pyramid itself covers the size of almost 4 football fields and is 60 feet tall.
Although it was first discovered in 1948, it has taken many years for the excavation to take place. It appears that the area was a thriving population center, but amazingly, no evidence of war has been found in all the artifacts that have been discovered. No weapons have been found, no battlements, no walls, nothing to indicate that warfare ever took place here. There are many who believe this was an incredibly peaceful civilization that belies the common belief that war is somehow genetic or part of the human “make-up”.
As I send this to you I am about to embark on our annual Egypt trip where we’ll do ceremony inside the Great Pyramid once again. It is so incredible to me, the connections that I continue to find between Egypt and Peru – the pyramids, the mummies, the belief and devotion to transformation and a higher way of living.
Watch this amazing video “The Lost Pyramids of Caral” on You Tube that was part of the BBC Learning Documentary. It’s the first of 5 videos (10 minutes each), the first time I watched it I got the chills.
If you got the chills (hair standing on the back of your neck, or your heart opening, etc., etc.), let me know. I love making those connections.
