The Middle part ( Chaupy) of the Andean Path

Famous Anthropologist from Peru, Juan Nuñez del Prado will be teaching the Chaupy, or the middle side of the path.

Chaupy refers to the skin of our energy bodies. It’s where we connect to the world and ourselves at the same time. This is the place of Munay and love where we can learn skills to be in harmony with one another. In this class you will learn about the teachings of Don Andreas Espinosa who ran a Paqo school for ceremonialists and future shaman. We will learn all the techniques of moving energy that Juan learned when he was in school. We will be outside working ½ the time in nature for this class. You will also work with the technique Chaupi away that places belts around your energy bubble, that separates you from the rest of humanity so that it is easier to find your own enlightenment.

Please bring your own lunch. Snacks and beverages will be provided.

 

Cost $200 for 2 days, and if you combine both the Chaupy and the Lloque classes, the cost is $450 for 5 days
