Giita Rani's work is called Inner Kingdom and is a collection of songs coming from the beautiful regions of the soul. For a while, few years back, she would enter a loving state of bliss on a daily basis and song after song would come forth to be composed. By synchronicity, it was recorded in India, Brazil, and Spain, and features musicians from around the world. Then, the work went on to the streets in the humble art of busking and different stages around the world where she picked up folk music, the languages from the ancient times. Her music is now a merging between the two, music from the Inner Kingdom and around the world.

"Excellent Meditation Retreat in Beautiful Peru "
I liked the location of the retreat. Lake Titicaca is ideal for hosting a meditation retreat as it lends itself to the climate necessary for a deep inner journey. All of the locations we visited each has its own special energy and allure.

"A wonderful heart-opening experience!"
This was my first big trip out of North America, so I didn't know what to expect going into this journey (and it definitely was a journey). I was looking for something that wasn't your typical yoga retreat, something with a little more local culture, site-seeing and adventure. It was definitely a well-rounded, positive experience. The vegan food was so delicious (I'm not a vegan but I didn't miss meat at all). We had an amazing group of people from various parts of the world, and Angel was a wonderful host, guide and teacher. Peru is a beautiful country and the Sacred Valley has some absolutely breath-taking sites. This has truly been one of the most powerful and treasured experiences in my life; one I hold close to my heart and one I highly recommend.

"Life changing experience ??"
The intention and vibration of this retreat brought such an amazing group of women together. We explored spiritual sites, experienced profound meditation, daily yoga and the food was absolutely amazing! This trip was incredible and a great value. I obtained great clarity on walking my life purpose, made fantastic international connections and am so grateful that I got to be a part of it ?

"Magic Titicaca with Angel"
This was a magical retreat! Angel was a great tour guide and brought our group to some of the most mystical stops in Lake Titicaca! I highly recommend this retreat if you are looking to connect deeply with the land and take a journey into your self. The vegan food was a special plus!

"RETREAT FELL APART, FAKE HEALER, STAY FAR AWAY"
Some of the other people at the retreat were nice and we became friends, especially since what we had to endure bonded us.

Life Changing Retreat
This retreat was an amazing experience. I was looking to find myself and learn to feel love from within instead of searching for love from others. The mediation and yoga really helped me look within. I not only found the beauty in myself but how to see the beauty in others. The vegan diet was hard at first but really changed the way I felt. In the end all the teachings the diet and lessons came together and helped me truly free happy. Very life changing. Angel is very caring and I truly feel like her goal is to help people. I will never forget my experience and what I have learned.

" Now, what a wonderful, wonderful, experience. Going to tis retreat in Peru I didn't really know what to expect, but the experience went above my highest hopes.
I left with my heart full of joy, peace and love- as cheesy as it sounds it is also very true. I saw some stunning nature, had delicious food, met some amazing people and learned so many things about myself and connections to others, nature and spirits. Looking back its amazing how all that could happen in only two weeks time! Thanks to the universe for bringing me here and surrounding me with beautiful people and environment and thanks to Angel for bringing this life changing experience to people. One love <3 "

" This retreat drives energy and self awakening in any person. The schedule include much of meditation, visit to beautiful and mesmerising & unbelieveable places that makes your heart get engaged in a self change process. Angel did her best from organising the retreat to hive attention to little details and guided the group with a lovely spirt. At first I need more yoga though with the hiking, walking and many actives I enjoyed and worked out in nature.
Bless you Angel, as you have us a real experience in the Sacred Valley."

I couldn't have picked a better retreat to be on. It was great to be with a nice group of like-minded people.
Starting the day with meditation and yoga was great then followed by such a good breakfast. Not only the Breakfast but the lunches and dinners were always so delicious and 100% vegan. Then ending the day with meditation and singing. It was nice to see so much beautiful land in Peru and have everything Planed and pre-arranged.
I'm the type of person that would rather go to different countries rather than go back. But I definitely see myself going back to Peru. It's just such a beautiful peaceful country full of love.
Thank you, Angel, for sure a great experience and getting me even more in touch with the earth and my spiritual side.
