Spiritual Experiences in Machu Picchu

1. Hayapay - Healing & Restoring of the Aura
The Hayapay ceremony looks to heal and energize, harmonize and also cleanse the aura. The shaman uses the smoke of tobacco to achieve this goal. The ritual is recommended to take place in the outdoors, which is why it is suitable to perform it in the central plaza of the Machu Picchu Citadel.

2. Pichay - Aura Cleansing
The Pichay ritual helps to cleanse the aura with the use of coca leaves. Basically, the curative plant receives all that bad energy concentrated in your aura granting a connection with your inner self and nature itself. Throughout the ceremony, the shaman prays to the apus, the elements, the sun, the moon, and the pachamama to guide your spirit into a brighter and more positive path.
