“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”― Marianne Williamson

In Qero high in the Andes, a Paqo (Shaman) who knows their Personal Power is held in the highest regard. A Karpay Ayni (human energy exchange) with such a Paqo is considered the greatest of honour. Their personal power is not measured on their physical ability, but on how adept they are at moving energy, they also know the full capacity of their power which keeps their integrity in tact.

The essence of all being is living energy (Kausay). Our physical and energetic health depend on the unrestricted flow of this life force energy, it is the source of wholeness and wellness. The channels through which kausay flows, can become heavy, blocked or stagnant due to factors within and sometimes outside of our control. Ultimately, being aware of the flow of energy sustaining us, enables us to take charge of our own well-being by practicing how to drive, absorb and transform heavy energy into energy that empowers us. When we are grounded and in in a good state of mind and health, the energy is lighter and free-flowing. Being in the flow of life, we have an unobstructed view of our purpose and the direction we are headed.

“Change the way you look at things and the things your look at change” - Wayne Dyer

The yoga in this workshop will help you push through some of your limiting beliefs about yourself, while being conscious of your capacity. We will practice some Andean techniques to drive energy in ourselves and through others, breaking down the barriers that stand between us. There will as always be some sacred chocolate from the cacao spirit of Guatemala to assist us.

- Cacao increases the heart rate by 20% giving more blood flow to the brain by 40%. If you are prone to migraines, have a heart condition or are on antidepressants, please consult me before coming.

- Some of the cacao bombs contain NUTS - not suitable for people with nut allergies. ... Though, if you do have a nut allergy, please let me know so I can make more of the bombs without nuts.

- Try not to have caffeine, as this may decrease the effectiveness of your journey.

The numbers of this workshop are limited, advanced booking is essential.
