TOUR TO INDIGENOUS-JEWISH PERU

Our trip centeres on visiting with the Indigenous-Jewish community of Peru (known as the B'nai Moshe or as the Inka-Jews), and with the "official" Jewish community of Lima. The B'nai Moshe reside in some of the most spectacular Andes Mountains, Jungle and Coastal regions of Peru. At the same time we will also conduct study-visits to some of the most magnificent archaeological and ecological sites of Peru, participate in local cultural engagements and enjoy city and site touring.

www.RabbiShefaGold.com / http://pilgrimsandpilgrimage.blogspot.com

Please join Rabbi Shefa Gold on a pilgrimage trip to the Matchu Picchu and the sacred lands of the Inkas in the South of Peru. The dates of the trip are March 10 - 19, 2008.

RABBI ZALMAN SCHACHTER-SHALOMI: "Rabbi Shefa knows how to contact the deep patterns of soul growth. She does that in the dimensions of sound, meditation, movement, and transformation for people. Her Center for Devotional, Energy & Ecstatic Practice (C-DEEP) will serve those who are tired of doing only the beginner's work."

Join us for 10 days of pilgrimage. Our trip is a pilgrimage inwards aided by daily journeys to special sites. Our pilgrimage will take us to some of the most sacred and most magnificent natural sites in the South of Peru. We will journey to the most-magnificent Machu Picchu sanctuary, the Inca sacred valley, and hike through archeological ruins.

We will participate in guided group and individual spiritual sessions, and we will also meet and converse with local Indigenous practitioners. We will travel to enjoy incredible natural sites and visit the people who still make those mountains, rivers, and valleys their home.

We will take daily trips to special sites in the Cuzco region, learn the deeper meanings of their Indigenous archeological ruins, hike mountains and parks, participate in indigenous spiritual practices and tour the region and its incredible wonders.

Tours to central America and South America:
Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Buenos Aires and to the South of Argentina.

We will spend an intensive 10 days visiting various rural communities. Indigenous nations, having remained isolated from the political power centered in the capitals, are the most pristine representatives of original native cultures. Having also lived in close contact with nature, Indigenous communities have developed very unique cultural patterns that include the art and music of Western sources with the original sounds of pre-Columbian cultures.

1. We will engage in solidarity work in different Indigenous communities. We will also participate in interactive workshops in the native arts, crafts, music, dance and singing, and learn from their traditions and legends.
2. We will tour impressive ecological sites.
3. We will visit a number of rural estancias in the interior of the country and participate in many communal festivals and meals.
4. We will stay at a local ecological lodge.

As always, our tours are all inclusive. The price of the tour includes round trip international air-fare, domestic travel, lodging, 3 meals a day, internal transportation, all the workshops, and all in-site and regional activities.
