There will be meditations; deep connections and reverence with our Earth Mother, the elements; exposure to both Ancient shamanic wisdom, and the rich local culture, clarifying and cleansing opportunities. This is a journey thoughtfully created for abundant nurturing and rejuvenation for your body, mind, spirit, and yes… your heart.

Under the impeccable, sensitive, guidance of Mona and don Pepe, you will ceremoniously experience the sacred vortexes of  the lush womb of our Amazon Rainforest & its pristine spirits within; Ollyantaytambo, Machu Picchu; Aguas Calientes Hot Springs, Cuzco and the Plaza de Armas, Qorichancha, Pisac & Pisac marketplace, Inkariy Museum, and several pre-Incan ceremonial sites that are don Pepe and Mona’s favorites! During down time, you will be nestled in the spectacular fertile energies of Sacred Valley.   

Is this pilgrimage to the Earth’s essence – which will bring you to your essence – for You?   Ask yourSelf:

  • Do you long for deeper connection with the earth, and with others? (Such longing is often rooted in the need for connection for oneSelf – 
  • Do you feel overwhelmed by today’s world?
  • Have you been wanting to treat yourself to “The Trip Of A Lifetime”? Do you long to mark the end of one chapter in your life, and/or the beginning of a new one, with a journey that’s spectacularly and extraordinarily meaningful? (Testimonials from past trips, toward the bottom of this page, speak to these thoughts best.)

Please contact Mona directly for more information, and the detailed itinerary  Thank you for your gracious consideration!

Throughout the year, south Florida-based shaman and curandera Mona Rain joins Peruvian Shaman and Curandero don Pepe Arancibia, to act as spiritual guides for Shaman-Led Vision Quests to Mystical Peru. The Vision Quests are an intimate exploration both within and without.

Individually, Mona and don Pepe each offer a wealth of shamanic, healing, and teaching skills, both learned and innate, and have touched innumerable lives while bringing blessing and awareness to Pachamama. Together, they create and lead unforgettable, transformational Spiritual Vision Quests. Please click here to learn more about Mona, and click here to learn more about don Pepe.

Another past traveler shares the following experience:

“…my husband and I had the opportunity to travel in the magic land of Peru with Mona and Pepe. I remember being in a ceremony with the beautiful ikaros sung by Pepe, with Mona kneeling & looking like a guardian angel, praying for the Spirit’s opening. Traveling with the two of them, we learned much about the native people of Peru and the ancient cultures of the country. Sitting in the field of Sacsayhuaman, looking at the amazing walls of this historical site while Pepe led a meditation, was an amazing and healing moment. I was so fortunate to be able to travel with these remarkable guides, that I returned a gentler person.  I will always thank them for this trip and one day, I hope to see more magical sites under their guidance.” ~ Mary M.

Here are some additional reviews of past trips, and of your spiritual guides:

My Spiritual Vision Quest ~ June 2015     

“I had the incredible experience of realizing a dream, a dream that I been cultivating on some level of my existence, in each and every lifetime, that I have lived over the last 1,000 years.  I believe that I was able to bring this dream to fruition, in this lifetime, due to my sacred contract with Mona Rain.

It has been through and with her guidance, mentorship, compassion, unconditional love, understanding and genuine belief in her mission to be the bridge that enables those of us who choose the journey, to travel and arrive back home, safely and complete.

Working with Mona over a period of four years, she assisted me in assimilating to channeling Masters of the Light, as well as working and integrating other intuitive abilities, to the degree, that I felt ready to experience Peru at the depths it was meant for me.

Knowing that Mona was always holding sacred space for me, allowed for me to truly let go of any fears or inhibitions. I believe that this true sense of freedom, along with the incredible energies of Peru, help set the stage for the most amazing experience of my life. I was gifted with the integration of a fragment of my over-soul and the energetic activation and alignment with the universe.

I have experienced Mona’s essence and truth, and know that she works from the highest level of integrity. It is because of these qualities, coupled with her knowledge, beliefs, wisdom and dedication to the ancients, that I choose her as my maestra and guide to Peru.

Mona’s partnership with don Pepe (an authentic Peruvian guide) is a match made in the cosmos. Together they bring about an experience, that some could only dream about.

It was evident that Mona and don Pepe planned each and every aspect of this amazing trip, with exquisite precision. From the intricate sacredness of the ceremonies to the leisure trips into the jungle for a day of hiking. Each day, each hour, built upon the latter, creating excitement and wonder.

Don Pepe was brilliant with his teachings and gentle guidance in the ways and history of the Peruvian people. Each day we all looked forward to his sharing of Peruvian customs, stories, daily antidotes as well as the daily agenda.

I began my trip with an open mind and and open heart, hoping only to find something I had been searching for, for over a thousand years… I ended my trip with a mind full of possibilities and a heart full of contentment, knowing that someday soon I would return to a place I now knew I could truly call home.

I consider it to have been a great honor to have had Mona and don Pepe as my Guides on such an incredible journey and will be forever grateful.”   ~ Susan Johnston, Pensacola, Fl.  Intuitive Life Coach/Certified Clinical Transpersonal Hypnotherapist

“Mona Rain is my ‘Shaman, Healer, Sage’.  I have been a regular client of hers for over 10 years and the healing I have experienced physically, mentally, and spiritually has been profound.  In addition to her skills as a healer, I am so grateful for her calm and grounded demeanor.  I place my full trust in her abilities and her confidentiality.  Mona is also a teacher of Earth Medicine & shamanism.  My connection with Gaia has grown as a result of her leadership.  I have learned many self-healing techniques from her teachings.   

In 2012, I traveled to Peru with Mona as part of a tour group on an archaeological and spiritual quest.  It was there that I met Pepe Arancibia, one of our Peruvian guides.  He knows his way around Peru!  Pepe is a sweet and gentle man so connected to the Energies, the Cosmos, and the Earth.  He tunes in to your needs, and supports you at the perfect time.  Speaking of time, there were periods that I needed more time in order to process and integrate my experiences and he graciously allowed me to have it.”  ~ V. C. W. Palm Beach, FL.

Sacred silence enveloped all as a portal to the Ancients and the Star Beings opened… Blessings to these dedicated travelers: (top to bottom, left to right) Stacy, Wendy, Cheryl, Karen, Brian, Kenny, and Susan, as you integrate the energies and experiences that touched and transformed your heart and soul.

“…my husband and I traveled with Mona and a small group to Peru on a healing and heart opening journey. There we had the pleasure of meeting Pepe. It was a honor to travel with both Mona and Pepe.  They are wonderful souls:  Mona’s grounded and unassuming demeanor combined with Pepe’s gentle nature allow one to feel comfortable and safe under their skilled and knowledgeable tutelage.  It was quite a memorable journey and one that we will carry in our hearts forever.  I highly recommend experiencing Peru under their guidance.”  ~  Kathy & Bruce G. ~ Owners, BirdSong~ Wwoof (willing workers on organic farms) & organizers of annul Kiwiburn Festival Christchurch, New Zealand
