Honoring Pachamama at the Heart of AN

August 10, 2018
We had a huge snow in the nearby Apus. The snow was the largest one we have seen here.

Although we are getting a few warm, sunny days, it’s still a cold winter here, perfect for quiet contemplation. I’m still writing my new book, except for when I’m writing a Surf Report. This is such a strong time for looking at everything ~ the state of the world and our personal journeys ~ and [ Read More…. ]

On July 15, Emanaku made another trip to the high Andean community of Yanamayo to pick up some more crias. The moment he arrived, Pedro and Cecilia appeared with a herd of alpacas, but it wasn't their herd! They were retrieving two of their alpacas who had decided to join someone else's herd.

This time of quiet at the Heart of AN is serving us well. It doesn’t mean that we’re doing nothing ~ we still have way too much to do. But it’s helpful not to have much social interaction with people so we can concentrate on recalibrating and resetting everything ~ both inside and outside of [ Read More…. ]

Peru is having a very cold winter this year. Lots of fresh snow on the nearby Apus.

We’re having a much colder winter than usual here. The nearby Apus are covered with snow. The wood stove in our living room is going all day and we are doing our best to stay warm. We are so happy that we are taking care of some of Pedro’s baby alpacas. The smallest one, whom [ Read More…. ]

It's winter here in Peru and it's a colder one than usual.

June has been a month of recovery time for us at the Heart of AN. On June 8th, we finally got our car, La Perla back from the repair shop. She had been gone for three weeks and it feels so much better to have her home with us. We had a one night visit, [ Read More…. ]

The morning after our ceremony, Nima and Tawa check out the Countries of the World. The way that the river rocks had been placed between the eleven rays felt like they were codes. Photo by Merrilyn.

For his birthday, lucky Sebastian was beautifully serenaded with "Las Mañanitas" by Consuelo and her charango.

• WORK PARTIES • THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD • The next few days passed quickly. We made a quick visit to the Chinchero Market for the sake of those who hadn’t been here the first week. We spent an afternoon in various work parties, getting much accomplished. We love the work parties and have [ Read More…. ]

Immersion Into AN – Part Two

In the afternoon of our second day, we surprised everyone with the gift of a special drum. Here, Merrilyn is receiving her drum. We are especially grateful to her for her gracious donation to help us buy the drums.

• THE DRUMS OF AN • In the afternoon of our second day, we presented everyone with a surprise gift of a Drum of AN. These were very special drums which were made for us in another area of Peru. Next, we went out to separate places upon the land with our drums so we [ Read More…. ]

During the final days of our Cards of AN Class, our much loved car, La Perla, had a major breakdown. On our "free" day between events, Emanaku accompanied the tow truck with Perla to Cuzco where she could be repaired.
