Reiki Master & Andean Healer Initiation Retreat
Reiki can be a beautiful way to connect to the Universal Life Force and channel it down to our everyday life, both for healing others as well as ourselves. The advanced Reiki Master level course will allow Reiki practitioners to connect more deeply to their healing powers, as well as to receive the attunements needed for teaching and accessing the deepest source of most illnesses and suffering. This course is fit for practitioners who have finished their Reiki Level II practice & cleanse by the time the retreat begins.
This retreat consists of two Reiki Master level attunements, one Andean Shamanic Initiation (Q'ero Karpay), multiple healing classes including Advanced Reiki, Guided Extractions, Psychic Healing & Soul Retrieval, One-on-one healings, Sound healings, Spa sessions, Esalen massage, visits to Sacred Sites, Yoga Nidra/Yoga classes, Cacao ceremony, Rapé ceremony & optional Plant Medicine ceremonies.
Kali Wasi prides itself on hosting intimate groups (4-8 guests per retreat) so that each participant can receive the one-on-one attention that this great internal work deserves - from our healers, our teachers and and the retreat at large.
7 days, 6 nights starting at $1240

Q’ero Karpay #1 (Andean Shamanic Initiation) - tuning in to the Apus
On our first day, we will arrive at our retreat center in time for a delicious vegetarian lunch. Our home center is located in the beautiful town of Taray, right in the midst of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The sacred mountain Apu Linli stands tall over our home, along with other beautiful mountains and green pastures that surround us.
During our Welcome Ceremony, we will initiate a couple of items & practices that will accompany us throughout our journey:
Gifted crystal - On this day, we will gift you a crystal, which you will be charging throughout the retreat in the different ceremonies. This crystal will then be charged with all the energy from the magical area of Sacred Valley, as well as with all the lessons from your journey, for you to take home.
Journal - On this day you will be gifted a local artisan journal which you'll be able to take home, and which is intended for you to express yourself throughout your journey, as this type of coursework tends to be deeply healing for the participant as well as educational.
Intention - During this ceremony we will share our intentions for receiving the attunements, coursework and initiations included in the retreat. *During the days prior to the retreat, please take time and space to meditate on that which you would like to heal, transform and become, as well as things you may be ready to let go of from your life
We will then have some free time to settle into our rooms, meditate, walk around, etc. until we reconvene for our Q'ero Andean Shamanic Initiation or Karpay. Our first karpay will be a beautiful ceremony of deep spiritual transformation and alignment. Please prepare to receive this sacred ancient initiation by meditating on your intention, and choosing your offering to Pachamama / Mother Earth. Our work for the Pachamama karpay will be led by a traditional Q'ero Paqo (shaman) from the Andes.
The Q'ero Karpay will allow us to make the most out of our environment by opening the gates of connection to all the Sacred Mountains of the Valley. These mountains are known to the local cultures as 'Apus', sacred mountains inhabited by the gods themselves, each with their own powerful spirit.
