PRIVATE READINGS AND CEREMONIES DETAILS

When an elder dedicates his/her whole life to be at the service of others by sharing prayer and ceremony, it is important we care for him/her and their families by offering the appropriate contribution for their time & commitment. They are human beings with the same basic needs to be met just like all of us. Read here to find out more about how elders were traditionally cared for in communities & how it is still a necessary in the modern day.

 

Here are the appropriate contributions for privates offered in the U.S. on this journey:

 

Private readings :  $50 - 100 sliding scale

Private ceremonies : $150

Song Healing Sessions : $80 - 100 sliding scale

 

*This being said, there is some flexibility within reason when truly needed because it is our commitment to share healing & well-being. Please be mindful of these requests, remembering that our elder and his team flew internationally from Peru & are driving around the country to pray with you. Please also note, there are many public events being offered at approachable prices so you may enjoy the experience in a group context.
