THE Q'ERO NATION
Elder Juan Gabriel Apaza Lonasco and his daughter Idwarda will be blessing us with their humble presence to share ceremony, weaving workshop, and coca readings.
The Q’ero are recognized as the last living descendants of the Inka bloodline- a nation deeply revered all around Peru for maintaining the spiritual and artistic traditions of their ancestors. Around 2,000 people still live up in the distant village at 15,000 feet above sea level. Nowadays, many Q’ero have moved their families down the mountain into the cities to experience the opportunities of modernity. Many circumstances arise in the city which challenge this vibrant culture to pass its heritage into future generations. Yet, similar to Tibet, it is through challenge and hardship that the gems of this spiritual lineage has been able to spread its wings across the world for the benefit of all.
The Q’ero are known as the keepers of the Coca tradition. Through despacho ceremonies, meditative weaving, and deep connection to the healing properties of this sacred plant- these traditions serve as a powerful catalyst for healing. Through intensive life-long training, wisdom-keepers can help to heal people by removing blockages and aligning you with the spirit of Nature to support your highest life aspirations.
Through our intimate relationship with our Q'ero family, Reviveolution is dedicated to support these traditions to thrive in the modern world.
We feel very blessed to host the first half of our retreats in this serene, beautiful, and cozy retreat center. Each room has comfortable beds, warm down comforters, and hot showers. There are beautiful hiking trails just out the front gate. Best of all, the proceeds go to support young Peruvian children to enjoy an after school youth program which passes on Andean spirituality and holistic education.
REMOTE MOUNTAIN VILLAGE:
We feel very honored to be welcomed by the Machaca family of Ausangate into their humble, remote, & authentically native home for the second half of the retreat. Rooms are shared and very basic with simple beds and warm blankets. This space is showered with the genuine love and simplicity of Andean life- possibly one of the greatest teachings we can experience. Not to mention the breathtaking views of the highest mountain peak in Peru and fluffy lamas that like to pay an occasional visit. Hot showers aren't necessary here because of the hot mineral springs available for your leisurely soak any time.
