Here you will find the description of workshops and ceremonies that we organise in Terra Sacra or in Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Chaka is a quechua word meaning 'bridge'. But the Q'ero's, who still speak the Inka language in one of it's purest forms, don't see the construction we see in our mind's eye when this word is spoken. They immediately add: sonqo a sonqo ; 'from heart to heart'. This is only just one of the many examples of why their language is so difficult to translate into our logical western languages.
When asking Don Alejandro to teach us the most basic and original teachings of his lineage, the Inka priests of the high Andes, he did not hesitate; That would be the initiation of the Rainbow path. This is a teaching that all young people of their tradition receive and which is repeated every time someone 'strays from the straight path' through their own acts or through circumstances in their life. In it, we are taught to walk the seven paths of the seven colours of the rainbow, each one raising in vibration, each one a healing in itself and each one establishing a profound connection with it's ruling element. This teaching, in all it's pure but intense simplicity, creates a beautiful energetic bridge between us and the elements, the cosmos, and our divine Mother and Father.
It prepares us to walk the Rainbow path and eventually 'cross the Rainbow bridge' that will bring us back to our origins, our cosmic roots.
Seven colours, seven paths, seven levels of healing and awareness. Don Alejandro tought us and his daughter Doña Marquesa the knowledge as it was passed to him by his father Don Santos Apaza, though small in stature a great Paqo, contemporary, friend and tutor to many of the first Paqos to make contact with the western world.
The prophecies of the ancient Americas speak about a period of great transformation, and foretell of a new human appearing on the planet – persons of wisdom and power who live free of fear and abide in their eternal nature, Homo luminous.
The Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade your luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past-the karmic & genetic programs and beliefs you inherited. They re-inform your DNA, enabling you to grow a new body that ages, heals, and dies differently.

Peter and Alice can organize individual or group sessions to receive and learn to pass on the rites.
Plant Medicine and Kambo
Receiving the sacred plant Huachuma (aka San Pedro) for the first time from Julian Papacho in Peru in the following weeks Alice was called by this gentle Grandfather in visions and dreams. After more training in Peru together with Peter she now leads ceremonies for small groups or individuals at Terra Sacra, where Peter is the designated guardian as he was initiated to be by Tayta Huachuma.
Peter and Alice also learned to work with Kambo, the frogmedicine from the Amazone. They have received training from Naysha Silva, medicine woman from Peru.
In the beautiful forest of Terra Sacra stands 'Miquiz Cuauthli', the Temazcal or Sweatlodge served by Alice, who has received rites from various lineages, and Peter, experienced Firekeeper.
Inspired by the different lineages, the ceremonies of purification that are celebrated here are always a profound experience of communion with the deep and dark womb of Mother Earth.
Haehuarikue or Depacho
A Despacho, in Quechua 'Haehuarikue', is an offer to PachaMama, Mother Earth. In daily life the Q'eros make these offers for all kinds of situations. Death and birth, sickness, gratitude, sadness or joy. They are colourful mandalas, packages full of gifts and prayers to PachaMama and the Apu's, the spirits of her powerplaces.
At Terra Sacra we regularly celebrate these beautiful ceremonies in small groups.
