Pachamama Offering Description

Experience a true Andean ritual! Give thanks to Mother Earth (or the Pachamama) with the guidance of a Shaman, an Andean priest. The Pachamama Offering ceremony is part of a system of reciprocity between the material world and the spiritual world. According to Andean beliefs, it helps establish balance in our lives.

The ceremony itself is an offering of small amounts of native Andean seeds, grains, and fruits, together with coca leaves. During the ceremony, the Apus, or sacred mountain deities, and the four elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire are invoked. In addition, the three levels of life (hanan pacha: the world above, kay pacha: this world, and ukhu pacha: the underworld) are represented by the components of the offering. Finally, a ritual toast (challa) is made with chicha de jora (native corn beer). The final step of the ceremony is the burning of the offerings so that they can return to their origins, rising into the sky while the remaining ashes are buried in the earth to complete the cycle.

The Pachamama Offering ceremony takes place at your hotel or at a temple and will last between 2 and 3 hours.

Included

  • Services of a Chaman in private service
  • All the materials required for the ceremony
  • Transportation to and from Chinchero (from Cusco) with driver
