Day 1 --- OCT.  5 ---Sunday

Fly into Lima, Peru 
(airfare from USA  is not included)
Arrive Lima Airport met upon arrival and transfer to hotel.  
Evening "talking circle" sacred hoop circle to get 
acquainted and share our intentions for our journey.

Overnight   El Pardo Hotel, Miraflores
Day 2 --- OCT. 6 --- Monday

We begin our journey by  motor coach excursion south 
from Lima along the Pan American Highway to ancient 
pre-Inca “Oracle“  of  Pachacamac. 
Pachacamac is one of the largest and most important 
ceremonial centers, 
overlooking the coastal desert of 
central Peru.  
Pilgrims came from many miles away to 
consult the Oracle, one of the four major oracles that 
existed within the Inca territory.  
At this ancestral 
sacred site we will meditate  
upon our intentions for 
our journey with a ceremony of gratitude 
and  ask for 
direction and clarity from the 
"Oracle Spirit of Place."     
 Lunch and on to Ica. 
ICA, located between Paracas 
and Nazca, 
is a lush agricultural oasis surrounded 
by desert sands.  
The narrow desert fringe that 
stretches for more than 1,400 miles along 
Peru's Pacific Coast, 
has been called the driest desert 
on Earth.  
Small oasis have formed where rivers, 
descending from the slopes of the 
Andes cross the desert.  
Here, people have lived for 
thousands of years.  
Desert and sea, dry golden dunes, 
crystal clear waters, mysterious and 
enigmatic markings; 
all this is Ica, 
an oasis of contrasts and contradictory landscapes, 
with myths and legends which relate
 the rise and fall of peoples who persevered against
 the hostility of the desert to construct their towns 
and civilization.  
 Ica, land of cotton, wine and pisco,
 a liquor with an aromatic, 
grape bouquet, is full of history.  
Ancient Peruvians of the area wove 
splendid robes of varied colors; 
mummified their dead with singular skill; 
and drew lines and 
gigantic figures in the desert as a homage to 
the Sun, the Moon, the Earth and the Stars.

Day 3 --- Oct. 7 --- Tuesday


Some 2,500 years ago, Nazca was the 
seat of a pre-Inca civilization 
highly advanced in both 
astronomy and ceramic art. 
Today enormous geoglyph figures of animals,
birds and geometric figures remain 
etched in the desert, 
a testimony to this remarkable culture.
The line drawings can only be seen 
and appreciated from the air. 
This morning we will fly over 
the Nazca Lines, 
stretching across the Nazca plains,
like a giant map or blueprint left 
by ancient astronauts. 
The Nazca Lines were first spotted when
commercial airlines began flying across
the Peruvian desert in the 1930's. 
Passengers reported seeing 
'primitive landing strips'
on the ground below. 
Author Eric Von Daniken hypothesized that,
in remote times, ancient astronauts 
visited the earth; and the giant figures
on the Nazca plain were meant as signals
for the space travelers, 
as they touched down on 37-mile long airfield.
The Nazca Lines are known for 13 gigantic
animal figure constellations, 
countless mathematically precise geometric patterns,
spirals, and 144 flat surface landing strips.
The entire area was made up of huge 
iron ore deposits that concentrated 
magnetic energy, 
creating an electromagnetic field of 
extraordinary strength. 
As we fly over the energies of the Nazca Lines,
one can feel the connection that these 
ancient people had with 
extraterrestrial sources of guidance,
and the energies can awaken the remembrance
of that connection in us as well.


After lunch we will visit the museum of the  Ica Stones .


The collection of approximately 
15,000 stones are the ancient carved 
gliptolithic rock-
library known as the Ica Stones.
In the 1960's a farmer found 
piles and piles of rocks deep in various 
gorges and caves not far from the Nazca Lines.
The etchings reveals a lighter color than 
the original dark varnish of age, 
yet the etched grooves also bear 
traces of this varnish, 
indicating that the carving was done 
in ancient times. 
They are a form of andesite, 
a gray to black volcanic rock,
and a very hard mineral that would make 
etching quite difficult with primitive tools,
a local river rock, 
covered with a patina of natural oxidation.
Laboratories in Germany have authenticated
the incisions that make up the carvings 
as extremely ancient.
Dr. Cabrera's library 
is organized by subject matter including 
the races of man, 
ancient animals, 
lost continents, 
and the knowledge of a global catastrophe.

We depart for coastal Paracas and 
check in to our beautiful beach resort hotel. 
This small coastal town was an important
trade center of the Paracas culture 
that flourished over 3,000 years ago.
From around 1300 BC to 200 AD 
the Paracas culture dominated the 

barren desert, south of Lima. 
These people are considered to have 
produced the finest textiles 
known in the pre-Colombian period. 

Evening group Star/UFO gazing
and Sacred Hoop Circle 
to share our Nazca experiences.
