Meeting with the Mountains

This 6-day trip to the Alps in Austria and Germany consists of a series of ceremonies, initiations and rituals that have been carried out for centuries by the Inkas in Peru.
The two masters, Juan Nuñez del Prado and his son Ivan, will provide a lot of background information regarding the spiritual tradition of the high Andes and they will connect you with the living spirituality of the mountain world.
This MEETING WITH THE MOUNTAINS is based on the so-called Hatun Karpay in Peru, which translates as "great transformation" or "transmission of power" - and this is exactly what you're going to experience.

Powerful energy work in the Alps

Mountains, no matter where, have a very special task, as they transmit the living energy of the cosmos to the people. Therefor we will work intensively with Mt. Großglockner (Austria's highest mountain) and Mt. Zugspitze (Germany's highest mountain) as well as with Mt. Watzmann and the legendary Mt. Untersberg in order to gain power and guidance.

Mt. Zugspitze & Mt. Grossglockner: two of many experiences

The energy of a small sanctuary will help us strengthen our connection with the female energy. In a large underground cave, we let go of our fears and worries, while we connect in a salt mine with Mother Earth to gain access to our personal treasures.
The Eagle's Nest on top of Mt. Obersalzberg offers the perfect environment to work intensively with the inner and upper world. There we will practice WAÑUY and re-enter this world as children of Pachamama and the Great Father.

In touch with Mother Nature

During the entire journey, you will contact powerful spirits, connect with the energies of old energy and work energetically with great personalities of our European history.
You will learn from ancient myths and legends of the mountains and apply simple mental exercises of the Inkas to help cleanse the collective unconscious.
MEETING WITH THE MOUNTAINS is led Juan Núñez del Prado, his son Ivan, Elke Steinbach and Hans-Martin Beck. During this trip there is a lot of time to get to know the two masters from Peru from their personal side. 
Everybody is welcome, regardless of whether you know the Inka tradition, make other energy work or are at the beginning of your spiritual path.
