"My first solo trip!!"
This trip was such an experience of a life time, filled with beautiful scenery, amazing people and a whole lot of love and light! I am so grateful for everything that I experienced while I was on this retreat. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to get more in touch with mother earth and the magic that is in this world. This is my very first solo trip, Florida to Peru and I was a bit nervous with booking all of my hotels and transportation. Angel was so amazing and available during the whole process answering all of my questions also helping me find my accommodations and transport. Angel took such a load of stress of my shoulders during this process! The hotel we stayed in was really cute and was in the middle of the town which was awesome for wondering around yet still being close to your hotel. The yoga was okay for any level, we would meditate before each yoga session and it was lovely. We did a number of blessing ceremonies, I have never done anything like that before but they were all so special. We did a number of activities besides just going to Machu Picchu which was really awesome making the most of your time and money while you were there. I really liked to easy flow of the schedule, if things needed to be moved around to have the right time for it, we did so with no issue. This trip was truly amazing and enlightening!!

"Amazing life experience"
This was my 1st time in Peru & my 1st meditation/yoga retreat. I thought Angel was a great guide. She communicated well & had great insight about the area. The yoga & meditation was perfect! Done twice a day & was ok for any skill level. The food was good. The daily plans were great & all of the trips out were amazing & beautiful. This retreat was definitely one of a lifetime. I feel like it's worth it. I would recommend this retreat to anyone.
*Important Notes I wish I had
*You might have the option to take a car & train on the 1st day instead of car & hike(200Soles)
*It's best to book a hotel for the day before & the day after. If you dont book for the day after you might miss out that whole last day
*Figure out transportation to & from airport
*LEARN spanish or at least the basics

"Oct 2019 What a journey!"
The sights and scenes were amazing! Matchu Pitchu is an incredible place. My favorite was being there all day and being able to hike to the top. I loved that everything was simple, easy, organized and I did not have to think at all. Angel was great at providing transportation, places to stay, tickets to the train and sights, and having food/lunches,etc. I had no issues with anything and she was great at communicating beforehand. Angel was very kind and has a beautiful love of nature and the scared places in Peru. I loved that I was able to do some extra activities in Cusco by going to ancient ruins and a salt mine. Angel gave great recommendations as well and I felt taken care of because she was knowledgeable of the places and the language. I loved that we were able to do activities that most others would not unless they really researched the place, such as the waterfall hike, hot springs, and salt mine. The schedule was followed for the most part, but it was nice that there was flexibility, depending on what the group wanted. Angel would ask if we needed breaks or base the next activity from the energy in the group.

"Third Eye open."
From start to finish, Amita's genuine warmth & kindness of spirit were evident.
She leads you on a journey by inserting her intuitiveness regarding your readiness level to receive on every level. She knows when to nudge which I will always be grateful for.
My hike up Machu Picchu mountain is one example. This was a wonderful location to start my journey and Amita helped to open the passage. Thank you so very much !

"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.

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.

todo el retiro, angel, las actividades, las ciudades
from A Traveler,
The Sacred Journey Retreat was one of the best soul searching adventures of my life. The days started with blissful meditation, kirtans and yoga, followed by Vegan, Vegetarian breakfast. Each day we'd travel out to a sacred place and soak in the amazingly serene, yet self-energizing landmarks. The group was amazing and Angel Amita was simply beautiful in her leadership. She emanating awesome positive energy and shared her inner light with all. She knew the place inside out and had everything well organized throughout the trip. Everything went super smooth by the grace of Pachamama and Pachatatha. Wishing her the very best in her LandHealing project. We spent time going over EFT, Kaoshiike yoga dance, tarot reading, kirtans and bhajans all of which blend in very well with the overall theme of the retreat. The retreat is for the strong and open-hearted folks who trust the universe in giving back the energies that they send out. Each day ended with a deep sense of Satisfaction and Gratification for the surroundings, Nature and Higher Self. Thoroughly enjoyed the Backpacking, Hiking, Walking, Transportation via Car/Bus, Rail, Boat, Air. All-in-All a great trip.
"Angel" has become my guardian mother on earth and my friend for life, and this trip is one of the best adventures of my life. I have learned so much about myself and shared so much wonderful and magical time with the beautiful group of lovely people and all the other local people who have been involved in our journey. We have visited so many great sacred sites that it is difficult to rate them. The healthy food was so delicious and the space of living was great. I will never be the same person after this retreat in a positive way. I definitely recommend to everybody who search for some answers and need a beautiful journey inside and outside of ourself to go, you will never regret. Angel is an amazing person, teacher, in my eyes a becoming master of guardian angels with lots of experience and love. Thanks and blessings ❤ I will for sure go back. Pisac in my heart for ever."
"Have you ever met with real Angel before? :)
Angel is a most compassionate person that I have ever met about spirituality. She truly dedicated her life to healing The Planet Earth and Cosmos. During my journey in Peru, she guided us wonderfully; she communicates well with locals, arranged everything smoothly such as Hotel, transportation, entrance tickets to ancient sites with local guides and her cool driver Mr. Tino :)
Moreover, Vegan cooking course was amazing, I guess I ate the healthiest food in here during my stay and I learned a lot of cool tips and techniques in the kitchen. I lost weight, I increased my meditation time, I frankly healed my mind. I also have an idea about what light work is now :) I feel like I will be kept in touch with her and Pisac. Thus, I strongly recommend to Sacred Journey if you are thinking to visit Peru for a spiritual purpose especially if you are into learning new cool stuff, rituals, ceremonies and etc.".
It was from 2005 a huge desire to return to Peru, then I found Angel, and it was a great spiritual experience in every way. Combining yoga, mantras and inclusion of every participant. I recommend it because I want to go deeper in knowing mystical Peru, and Angel knows the places and the persons that makes an inner journey totally meaningful.
Thanks to her and all the group. I recommend her if you are on this inner path.
"Angel ,our guide, is truly an angel .The Sacred Valley is truly sacred.

"" This retreat drives energy and self awakening in any person. The schedule include much of meditation, visit to beautiful and mesmerizing & unbelievable places that makes your heart get engaged in a self change process. Angel did her best from organizing the retreat to hive attention to little details and guided the group with a lovely spirit. 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.""
