Machu Picchu:

Experience an Inca Doorway into the Unknowable

A Carlos Castaneda’s Tensegrity® Premier Event

Machu Picchu: Doorway into the Unknowable

Peru — October 26 – November 4, 2019

A 10-Day All-inclusive Deep Exploration into a Dimensional Portal of Inca Shamanism

Navigate Cleanly Into an Inca Reality 

Your journey begins as your feet touch down in Cusco, Peru … the knowns begins to dissolve. In this magical, mythical land of the Inca, there’s no living culture … there’s no written culture … no descriptions. This is the epitome of the dream time.

The journey continues into a 2-day Tensegrity® Workshop designed to assist you in leaving your stuff … your preconceptions behind so that you can begin to experience this culture in Incan, rather than modern times. 

Since most people have not been to current day Peru and the Inca culture is not written or recorded, you can arrive cleanly, almost innocent, curious.  And because you are using tools of your lineage, Tensegrity®, you can empty yourselves better than anyone and peer into this Inca reality cleanly … without a prescribed lens.

Parallel Lineages – Multiple Paths

When you begin down a path of heart, it is far too easy to lose what Carlos Castaneda means when he talks about FREEDOM: freedom of perception or multiplicity…that state of leaving our monolithic, monochromatic interpretive lens behind and stepping into a state of multiple, flowing perception.

As you explore this dimensional portal of Inca Shamanism, this experience of freedom can be yours. One where you notice once separate and divergent paths as similar and overlapping…where shared truths, rituals, and beliefs between Carlos Castaneda’s lineage mirrors others…where you begin to notice that as the peoples of the Toltec lineage passed through the mouth of the Plumed Serpent for visions … so did the Inca go through the Amaru, or mythical serpent with wings.

At this moment … you transcend yourself and what you know … you enter the Doorway of the Serpent into multiplicity … and swim in the simultaneity of overlaying paths and ways of being found only in the unknowable.

Known, Unknown and the Unknowable

“Don Juan talked about the known, unknown, and the unknowable. He told of how the known is what we deal with day to day and defined the unknown as something that is veiled from man… but which, nonetheless, is within man’s reach. The unknowable, on the other hand, is the indescribable, the unthinkable, the unrealizable. It is something that will never be known to us, and yet it is there, dazzling in its vastness.”

— Carlos Castaneda, Fire From Within

As the Incas left no script etched onto the sides of stone buildings, nor written codices of dynastic succession behind – only oral stories exist in the minds of now Christianized natives and their more open-minded shamans. We will tap into the hearts, souls and tales of two such Inca shaman … through ancient rituals and ceremonies, you will be transported through the Gateway of the Serpent.

Schedule and Agenda

How can you design a path to the unknowable? You can’t! Yet, how you approach the unknowable is everything … and determines your success or your remaining exactly who you are!

To help you approach the unknowable in the way Castaneda guided his students, not all the details of this trip will be revealed. And therefore you will “remain alert, perennially on your toes,” and letting the authentic magic of this trip unfold. 

Back in the city, rarely do you have this opportunity. Yet on this trip, suspended in ever-unfolding states of unfamiliarity for extended periods of time, you will accomplish a quicker letting go of mind, expansion of experience, and incorporation of multiple views of not only shamanism but nearly everything else.

By attending this event in this way – you will create your own story of the Inca, one not based upon hard fact and others’ version of reality, but one based upon YOUR own perceptual experience, measured only by YOUR willingness to let go of what you know and YOUR ability to step into the ever-present unknowable.
