I am writing, organizing and editing the book at the moment.
I will be talking to Brian in September about the Ecuador Enchantments trip.
Have a look at the Enchantments of Life page, which is now edited, this will be part of the book.

The Enchantments Experience Ecuador

To be held at Montesuenos in the tranquil, temperate and energetically clear Valley of Longevity. Enjoy an extraordinary exploration into reality under the influence of the South American star night, exotic birds, flowers and mountain views, up at an altitude of over one mile high. Are you interested in coming?

The Course Structure

The dates I have been toying up to now are set. I have looked at the astrology and the Mayan Calendar and this structure all works with the energy available. Brian suggests these dates are ideal for him and his wife and is looking to be really accommodating. He has promised to share some of his extraordinary experience with us. The cost of the course itself is 270 GBP, US $430, HK $3,350 per person(not including flights, accommodation or food), which includes a structured community resource on the Internet to prime you in the weeks leading up to the experience -- this promises to be a course unto itself. I will base the modules on each day of the Ecuador course.

Arrive on or before Sunday 10th April 2011

Monday 11th April
The Force is Strong in That One—Life is at Hand

After the formal introduction, during which I will explain the intent to create new conscious questions, we start the course with direct experiential practice.

The energy field is instantly accessible; the vital force of life is literally at the end of your fingers and in the palm of your hands. Energy practices and theory on the holographic and holonomic nature of your energy field and how it connects with the Earth. A practice that is vitalizing, which recalibrates the frequencies of your consciousness, and which changes your perspective and heightens your sense of the world you are walking about in.

Module one includes rare perspectives on the Chakras, Aura and electrochemical nature of the body. All based on my 20 years of personal practice and exploration.

Tuesday 12th April
It’s all About You—The Self and Enchantments

Understanding the nature of change within yourself. We will be exploring childhood development, developmental psychology, nature and nurture, your life as a story, personal life aspirations and intentionality. The long good road of life and rites of passage.

Yoga Nidra and energy practice.

Wednesday 13th April
The Big Tomato—The Enchantments of Life

Looking at the whole juicy picture, we greedily consume the whole tomato; seeds and juice spill out onto the floor. We will be going through the whole model of the evolution of consciousness from involution, evolution, ancient history and recorded history up through present times and will touch upon the potentials of the future. Eat it all up with relish, without worrying what you spill, swallow as much as you would enjoy.

Lectures followed by interactive discussions where the aim will be to isolate the best questions.

Energy practices on each day.

Thursday 14th April
The Twilight Zone—The Wild, the Extreme and the Wonderful

Going way out of town to the places considered illegitimate by academics, integralists and developmental psychologists, what is normally considered mere fantasy but which seems to present us with a vast body of human testimony and compelling evidence that the world is not only stranger than we suppose, but is stranger than we can suppose. Life jackets will be handed out at the start of the day as we plunge into the oily waters of the mystery. From ET to big foot, to time travel and beyond. How do they fit?

Friday 15th April
Keeping It Real—Looking at Real World Issues

Lectures on the Enchantments of Life and the relevant challenges, listening to what is considered serious and facing it full on. As conscious, open-minded and experienced adults, we are as capable as anyone of looking at the important issues of world events and coming up with intelligent questions -- certainly as intelligent as those presented in the mainstream media. By the way, even though this day has gravitas, we will be laughing; dark humour is welcome and outrageous viewpoints are invited.

Saturday 16th April
Clear Day
Walking, massages, horse riding, chilling out at the ranch - whatever pulls you.
Evening visit to the Iguana Disco Café. Go off on your own or join me on a walk?

Sunday 17th April
Cosmic Plans and The Random Human—The Feedback Universe

Bringing it all home. Coming back to your everyday self, we accept our interests in celebrities, sex, sport, restaurants, wine, beer and intoxicants, newspapers, magazines and other addictions, cooking, shopping, clothing, TV dramas and furniture, whilst acknowledging the wonders and excitement of the diversity of your perversities. Hmmmm, yes, but how is this all relevant to the Enchantments of Life stuff, in terms of the intimate immediacy of the mundane and not-so-mundane life we lead, the existential reality?

Energy field practice — feeling the multiple frequencies in your field - and an open discussion on how you see everyday life changing and your visions on the nature of your work, entertainment and social life.

Monday 18th April
Extravagantly Flavoured Moroccan Chickpea Stew Heightened by an Exotic Beni Sadden Rich Red Wine, followed by Rose Flavoured Milk Pudding
Your Personal Intentions, Ordering from The Menu

What will you order from the menu of life? The Waiter is always hovering; now we can help you make your choice.

The day starts with the energy practices, including a Yoga Nidra quest.

Lecture on Intentions, Law of Attraction, Life Purpose, sympathetic resonance, intent and will versus mystery and surrender, need versus want. A highly interactive day full of nourishment as we hear of the exotic flavours that are conjured up by the wide range of feelings you all have about your life intentionality.

Then optional 2 day pony trek or hiking into the Podocarpus Park, here is a photographic blog (good pictures) of someone’s hike.

Plus more optional days.

A leaflet will be produced from this structure. Also, see the blog Ecuador; The Flow of Consciousness, second blog below to understand more about the energy flow of the course structure.

Who Else is Interested?

I will be Skyping with Brian in early September so if you are interested at this stage let me know.

The Enchantments of Life '2.0'

Here is an overview and reminder of the basic map we will be utilizing, understanding and experiencing on the Ecuador trip.

The evolutionary adventure of consciousness, towards more complexity, becoming more conscious, more intimate with larger scale of life. The expanding landscape of the psyche.

Enchantment: Self;
Quality and imperative
Membership, expanding consciousness by increasing in complexity as we evolve.

Dark Sun
: Mythos;
Falling into the dream within the dream;
An extrapolation of consciousness from the eternal dreams of divinity—the souls journey into matter
Unconscious union with cosmos

Earth: Instinctive;
Smooth consciousness merging with senses and with flickering moments as undecipherable dreams, objects and living things appear out of nowhere;
Embedded in nature, unconscious membership with Earth

Moon: Dreamtime self;
Ebbing and flowing awareness seeking safety, comfort and warmth;
Embedded in clan embedded in magical nature and cosmos

Mars: Impulsive Self-the Id;
Hot surges, seeking to ‘have it’ now, satiation;
The Self is now emerging within a power dominated tribe and marauding-tribalistic environment within the wildly chaotic jungle of unknown powers of sorcery and magical nature

: Role Playing self;
Attention zooms into the grain of sand, totem or totem toy and finds the universe it is creating, seeking self protection and pleasure from others; shamanic, ancestral and early farming Goddess village as a whole universe unto itself in the continuously seasonal cyclic reality

Jupiter; Mythic Self;
Yearning, as attention expands out in all directions seeking epic vision, adventure and the rush of the awesome;
Heroes create the universe—empires, theocracies and mafias of various scales of mythic membership competing with other mythic societies, includes advanced Goddess cultures

Saturn; Citizen;
Self censoring as attention constantly seeking reassurance, order, absolute morality, ever lasting peace of mind, release from guilt, to mend and secure the imperfect world, saving up for future reward in heaven and looking to authority; belonging in fixed family unit, in citystate, in early nation states, in clear cut cultural structure within a pyramidal cosmos with supreme godhead that has bestowed the truth upon it, object and subject

Uranus; External and materially expressive self;
Seeking winning strategies, successful alliances, sensual satisfaction, adrenalin peaks of excitement and melodrama, fun, lightness, wit, a sharp edge, new tastes of life, cutting edge novelty in the fast lane culture, looking to win the game of life;
Cool crowd within corporatized nation states within international market economy within the modern world within the random and material universe

: Soulful Joining Self;
Seeking bliss, depth, humanitarianism, peaceful and loving agreement, sensitivity, empathy, authentic soul, healing, to feel wholly connected and to feel self is working to bring a world of equality;
Connected feeling to soul groups within global rainbow tribe within the unified cosmic ocean—a connected osmoic field of consciousness and energy

: Systemic Expressive Self;
Seeking enjoyment of changing emergent reality and to express self, freedom from compunction or obligation, to respond, resolve paradoxes, play the game of life to keep it going, to give to others without undue sacrifice, to improve life where possible and facilitate others, innovative novelty, spontaneity and the refreshment of connections with people, higher expression of instinctive self
Membership is an oscillation of isolation and expanding interdependence within the chaotic living complex systems of relationship, family, friends, all interpenetrating each other within the whole human species and natural Earth within the evolving holonomic living life fields of existence

Chiron: Integrated Self;
Experiencing the wonder of wholeness with dynamic fractures, seeking direct experience of living consciousness, enjoy the mystery of the union with the totality of life on earth, opening to the mysteries of the cosmos and complex magical nature of reality, existential intimacy, higher expression of Dreamtime self
Belonging is found within cascading and kaleidoscopic relationships within whole Earth System within Life on the grandest scale that shrinks to the immediacy of each moment. Self recognizes consciousness is ubiquitous.

Coral, Teal Enchantments and Beyond, The Future suggests various stages of trans-human self and Extra terrestrial communities involved in creation.

I will be posting more information tomorrow on the course and trip structure.

Ecuador ; The Flow of Consciousness

The Enchantments Process for the Interactive Retreat at Montesueños

This cycle of energy flow is based on the organic process of my own experiential research; it is a toroidal loop back from self to society back to self, with self as an intimate expression of the era and quality of the world ERA-ARC.

1. Experience the whole, through One’s Energy Field
2. Refinement of Overall Perspective by examining Enchantments of Life Map
3. Analysis, looking at details until entropy and relativity set in
4. Appropriate Vision, locating the real world challenges
5. Relevancy back to self and one’s own life purpose and your specific role
6. Connection to the Whole, Reconnecting with more clarity to personal energy and experience of life as it is.

1. Accessing the energy field with the understanding that we are fuzzy fractals, holons with a holographic resonance to whole Earth Energy field, yet we have limits to our perspective and energy access due to perceptional filters, beliefs, values and prejudices. Utilizing Chi gong style movement.

2. Refining the perception by examining the structure of the evolution of consciousness—The Enchantments of Life.

3. Honing in on some aspects of the big picture, that excite and pull on the attention and exploring potentials without prejudice or inhibition This is a why post corporate, post new age, easy going non politically correct approach with humour is important. To this we should add that it is easier to be out of the context of the herd mentality and the mass ideological energy to be as free as possible to explore, large groups create moral rules instantly. Further to this we develop the ability to hold different perspectives simultaneously; I will elaborate on this tomorrow.

4. Get real, we ask, “yes, but, what is the next step for human consciousness, culture and relationship to enable us to move on?”

5. How does that connect to each of us on a personal level, what is our unique function, purpose, natural expression and just manner of being?

6. Experiential energy connection, anchoring and integrating with a new level of energy and expanded spectrum of frequencies.

The Ecuador Trip: Prices

A friend called David rang me the other day and has said he is seriously interested in coming to Ecuador

He has a connection to the Enchantments and has said that he would also like to go because it is a part of the world he has never been to. The two components will come together to make a synthesis, the content and the place will create something unforgettable for us.

I have some interest from people from USA, Canada, South America, Hong Kong, England, and possibly other Europeans and may be able to get the odd person from Vilcabamba itself.
A few people are asking me about costs, I am still working on that but here is how it is shaping up.

The price of the course is 270 GB pounds US $430, HK $3,350
The Accommodation for 14 nights is around 200 GB pounds, US $300, HK$2,300
The internal flight return with taxi is around 200 GBP,US $300, HK$ 2,300
The Flight to Ecuador, is easy from the States, from HK, we go via Europe.
The price from London might be as much as 920 GBP, although I have seen flights from 500 GB pounds, so we will all need to shop around for that.

The course fee I have kept modest as possible, I am not in this for profit, just to pay me enough to get there and function at my best. Nine participants will get me there, more than that I can trim my fee, if Carey does not come.

The accommodation is good value, beautiful artistic, an amazing energy as it is created with the intent totally in resonance with what I and hopefully you want to do.

The cost of the main flight from London... Whoa, I hear you say, yes the big cost is getting from Europe to South America.

Staggering, I know, the base fare is around GBP 520; the tax & fuel surcharge is nearly GBP 400, CLUNK.. (arse!.. hopefully we can trim that.
So this is not the easiest place in the world to get to, but the beauty and the energy of Vilcabamba and in particular Monseuntos is so right for this experience at this time in the elad up to 2012.

I believe that everyone that has shown an interest in this could get the money if they desired to come, if it was truly worth it for them, if you really want to come...

So go back up your original excitement for a moment…

Ecuador and its exotica, the beautiful Monseuntos, the enigma of Brian perhaps, the walking and a horse trek maybe, restaurants and holiday mood with a group of interesting, really interesting people…and then the course and the content, the stars and enjoying each others company under the stars

Justify the money Mr Lucas

Okay, I will,

For those who would find it a challenge to warrant this money, I am committed to really giving you plenty of resources to expand your whole perspective on the reality in the world today.

So I am putting myself on the line, that’s the way it has to be
These times are full of financial reasons why we should be modest, reserved and not go out of the box provided. I truly believe that this is the perfect time for personal innovation and breakthroughs, this exactly the time to grab life by the short ‘n’ curlies and say “hey baby, I am here and I am alive, and I am kicking, bring it on”, any doubts, just listen to Sash>

...or words to that effect.

I have set up a community site, only accessible by The Ecuador Enchanters, that will have the course structure, the online prep course (free) is reading, watching some video to the degree you are able and want to and posting comments or longer pieces if you so desire and sending in links that are relevant to any particular section. I will start that in January.

The whole experience is going to give you a lot more than a course; I intend to facilitate a unique event, I am not using that word flippantly. I will also give you this online resource and community site for 3 months before hand.

I will layer the site, so that there is a basic 101 intro to each section, mirroring the structure of our time in Ecuador.
Then there will also be a deeper level of enquiry for those who can and are willing.

Here is another Ecuador Music Video


and also a seven minute Ecuador sampler

More structured information will be here by about Wednesday next week.

Stay with me, on this….

Clean Free Energy

Brian has confirmed a few details for me, the dialogue is ongoing.

Amongst other things I now know that the town is a 25 minute walk from Montesueños, or a $3 taxi ride, which is perfect and the two day hike in Podocarpus is very do-able. Most importantly though is that Brian can talk to us and give us the wisdom of his inside knowledge on the subject of free energy. I will get onto free energy in a moment. First I want to keep enjoying the beauty of nature, above is a picture of the cloud forest mountains above Vilcabamba, The clouds rarely clear from the mountains in the Podocarpus National Park.

I was delighted to hear Brian at the end of his Zurich interactive workshop (embedded below) where he discusses the energy solution with scientists, engineers and others say this…

The Human software solution of consciousness (and the software solution is the solution to global problems including the energy/environment) is through relatively small numbers of people coming together, (and accessing consciousness)... and they can perform miracles.

This is such a wonderful confirmation for me personally. My intent with the Enchantments Initiative fits perfectly and I feel is destined to be anchored at Montesueños.

The Incredible Truths of New Energy

The importance of raising awareness of the availability of clean virtually free energy cannot be over emphasized as an element of consciousness shift towards Chiron Enchantment, as well as a values shift to a humanitarian society that is truly abundant and more egalitarian. The manifestation of new energy is directly linked to a new economic system and more fluent energy throughout the world.

Dr Stephen Greer the leading light of the Disclosure Project, has interviewed over 400 top level officials and has access to those with direct knowledge of the reality of the extra terrestrial presence. The agenda of the project has been for a full disclosure and the priority for Dr Greer now is free energy. Here is a quick intro to the Orion Project the free energy arm of his organization.

ET and UFOs are naturally aligned with what some might consider to be the science fiction potentials of free energy and the incredible knock on effects and positive implications there after. The reverse engineering of alien craft by human covert ops, their evident superluminal capacity all lead us to new types of energy. It is not an exaggeration to suggest that a shift of how we use energy can liberate humanity to the next level of a vastly more conscious civilization. Dr Greer and Brian walk in the worlds of consciousness and new emerging sciences and do not see these as separate paradigms. The present level of our species consciousness is awakening to new scripts that come with a willingness to receive, rather than be tied up struggling with archaic labour driven systems that belong to a low level order of species evolution. These issues become transparent with a deep understanding of the Enchantments and the self perpetuating nature of reality. What is more this is accessible and fun when you get into it, and see it as part of Earths awakening.

Zurich Interactive Workshop below

HERE IS Brian giving a workshop in Zurich in 2009, dealing with difficult issues. Very relevant to our discussions.

Here is Brian being interviewed by Project Camelot

If you go onto Orion Project website you can watch further introductory videos with Dr Greer such as;

The Transition: A discussion of issues surrounding the transition to a clean energy society. (4:39) How long and how could this happen? My research suggest that 2025-2030 as Chiron returns to its discover position it becomes possible and imperative that we do make the transition.

The Suppression: A discussion of the suppression of clean energy technologies historically (7:22)

In Contrast Our Trip to a South American Place of Tranquility 2011...

Now you might not have the desire or the time to look at the very worldy and even multidimensional reality of the control agenda and the suppression of the free energies that would change the world and the environmental issue in a very short time—that’s okay.

The agenda of the Enchantments agenda is connect in with that control frequency but to operate above that frequency and create a subtle consciousness that is none the less influential. To reinforce what I say about the meeting in Ecuador and the Enchantments Initiative is the consciousness will be born from enjoyment, creativity, talking, imagination and accessing your energy field to vitalize yourself.

Breaking Out of the Reality Tunnel

Ecuador: if you did not see yesterday's post, have a look below as I present the first basic layout of the schedule of the course.

New Landscapes of Opportunity

It is really good to break out of our reality tunnel; it expands our perception of life, refreshes us, helps us appreciate and see the opportunities inherent within our life.

Habits tend to narrow down our awareness and our options after a while, as our focus attracts more of the same self-perpetuating events, opinions and limiting choices.

Admittedly, it is necessary to have routine to create some stability, but every so often we really need to get out of the inhibitory comfort zone. It does require effort and faith to overcome the practical reasons, normally financial, that say we cannot do something and carry on as before.

If you feel you really need to break out of the reality tunnel, then please consider coming with me to Ecuador. Part of the course is about learning the energy practice I do, which enables you to shift the assemblage point of the perceptional field, something akin to the Carlos Casteneda's Toltec magical passes.

Vitalizing the Adventure

Here is a quick introduction to one of the major and the most cohesive elements of the Enchantments of Life, it directly connects the emergent big picture with your intimate immediate reality. (This gives you a flavour of some of that which we will be exploring in Ecuador next year, the structure is coming together, see the provisional idea at the end of this piece )

The Multi-Faceted Reality

Truths are multiplying, there are an increasing amount of seductive perspectives in our world as the internet allows more people to have their say. How do we to navigate the relativity of truth, is there a hierarchy of truth or are all truths equal?
Here is the enigmatic Robert Anton Wilson talking about perceptions and relativity and our reality tunnels, 2minutes long.

The spectrum of light is analogous to a hierarchy of consciousness and truth. White light is the whole and is representative of the greatest truth. The rainbow is a spectrum of frequencies starting with red, going up the scale to violet, to this we can add infra red and ultra violet.

The wisdom we derive from ancient cultures such as the Hindus tells us that the chakras correspond with the hierarchy of the spectrum of light. The base chakra resonates with Red and the Crown chakra resonates with the white light that all other colour frequencies are derived from.

The Evolution of Consciousness—Back to the White Light

The One begets the Two the Two begets the Three and the Three begets the many, Lao Tzu describes creation the ‘fall’ of the unity of life into entropy. The process of creation from one is also the involution of consciousness from spirit-unity into matter. The return journey of consciousness is the evolution, or adventure of consciousness from the many back to one.

The thinking in many integral circles is that individual human development and cultural development—the upward progression of the frequency of consciousness—mirrors the incremental movement up the spine. The journey of the life force, the kundalini is impulsed to move towards the brilliant white light of the void.

In general terms I agree and it is intuitively correct that the evolution of consciousness is the move from base chakra; physical survival consciousness to second chakra; emotional needs, to solar plexus; ego survival, competition and expression to heart chakra relationship; feeling connection, emotional intelligence to throat chakra; abstract self expression and complex communication to Brow chakra; reality perception and fusion relationship, to Crown chakra; unity with creation.

During the 1990s and early part of the 2000s I was a practicing shamanic healer and light body activator, over the course of a decade I gained a direct connection with the energy field and the chakra levels in people’s bodies. The connection to the energy field was integrated with my daily practices of shamanic-chi gong that sometimes took up to 3 hours of the early morning. What I found most clearly—and as I say this hopefully you will recognize it as obvious—that we are operating from and through more than one chakra.

I found that in most people, including myself that we had two dominant chakra centres, one higher, one lower as well as lesser levels of expression throughout all chakras. My personal breakthrough, during my practice that defines my own life purpose and message was due to the connection to the planetary energy field and emerging new Earth Consciousness.

The work of Dr Clare Graves (pioneering genius behind Spiral Dynamics), whose background training included physiological psychiatry was that as we move through the stages of development (individually and correspondingly with the collective cultural progression) we build a layering of chemical complexity. The chemicals that he was talking about correspond to the endocrine glands which are the physical aspect of the chakras—the spinning vortexes of light.

The progression of truth, consciousness and perception involves a more complex and non linear activation of the chakras whilst still retaining the integrity of the basic vertical move towards the Crown Chakra.

The Enchantments of Life integrates the energy field, with an emerging understanding of the complex layering of our electro-chemical body, with developmental psychology, cultural development and the spiritual wisdom traditions and looks to integrate the mysteries of advanced ancient civilizations to reveal a hierarchy of truth and perspective.

Ecuador Update

The Ecuador adventure will include an emphasis on directly working with and learning to navigate the frequencies of light and consciousness in your own body and energy field.

I will be giving a refined and practical demonstration on how the emerging noosphere/planetary energy field is interconnected and experienced in your body.

I am dialoguing with Brian, working on the course structure and costs over this week.

Watering The Seed and Accomodation

I am gradually forming and adding pages to the Crow, they will be refined and edited properly in time and I am also working on other websites to make as much information as freely available as possible.

Ecuador starts now, please have a shifty at the pages on the right to get more of a sense of The Enchantments Initiative behind the trip.


Day Three of The Montesueños Enchantments Project in the land of the Incan royalty

Do You Want Join Us?


I have made contact with Brian this morning on the telephone. He had not received my email, HK emails tend to get put into the spam box. We have agreed to talk next week, there will be no problems in booking space and he said we have plenty of time to work it all out. My intention is to get the basic structures of the trip in place over the next 13 days or so.


I am looking at the end of the last week of April which starts with Easter Monday and the first week of May.
I am delighted with the people who have thus far expressed an interest in the course next year, a good diversity of expression and background.

Stimulating Energy

As part of my research for the trip, I have been looking to get a feeling for the Vilcabamba energy.
Montesueños is obviously perfect for an Enchantments of Life course and to anchor what I call The Enchantments Initiative. Apart from the aesthetics of the architecture, the natural beauty of the setting, we have the consciousness of the hosts, artistic, radically scientific, humanitarian, and experienced in the workings of the system from behind the curtain and also warm hearted.

Ecuador is one of the most civilized countries in South America. Vilcabamba specifically is safe, fairly alternative with healers and artists, free spirits that find more room for expression outside of the United States.

Map of South America

Here is a map of Ecuador we are in the state of Loja in the south bordering Peru

here is another one with Vilcabamba shown, drawn on by Brian

The Atmosphere

Consciousness breakthroughs occur when we can release the structures that normally serve us even if this is temporarily, as in a holiday, relaxing and letting of normal concerns allows us to flow in a bigger space within us and this is mirrored by the environment we find ourselves in.

When we open to a new energy we actually move into an inherent structure within that energy. Every place has its feeling, its frequency or energy signature, it is not devoid of structure.
Each environments has it's own unique subtle and exquisitely intricate context, that we can all feel, so part of my job has been to ask whether the Vilcabamba energy would accommodate the intent of the Enchantments.

I have received an overwhelming affirmative response from my internet searches. The people and the place will accommodate us.

The area is not as wild as many parts of South America. The energy of Guatemala, Chiapas in Mexico, from what I hear Bolivia and other parts of South America have that rich dark wild indigenosity. The Indigenous and edgy towns freer the mind for direct experience and you have to keep your wits about you, occult magic tends to be ‘in the air’. That is wonderful, but not the place to simply relax into beauty and be constructively creative. If and when I do some backpacking in South America I will enjoy getting into the more indigenous and rough edged culture, but for what we are going to do the background energy of the Vilcabamba area in Ecuador is perfect.

Vilcabamba transcends normality, from this space we can more easily see the world and with the help of the Enchantments map stay engaged with global consciousness dynamics.

Vilcabamba fromWiki
The area has been referred to as the "Playground of the Inca" which refers to its historic use as a retreat for Incan royalty. The valley is overlooked by a mountain called Mandango, the Sleeping Inca.

Locals assert that it is not uncommon to see a person reach 100 years of age and it is claimed that many have gotten to 120, even up to 135, which would make it an area with the oldest inhabitants in the world. It is often called the Valley of Longevity.

The climate of Vilcabamba is temperate sub-tropical; sometimes proudly referred to by locals as “perpetual spring”.

Here is an excerpt from Vilcabamba resident Jeff Hunter

I have noticed since being at the ranch that I spend more time being fully present. Nothing else exists here except serenity and beauty...all else can be left behind and life begins to be lived from a place of immense freedom from the past and from any expectations about the future. It reminds me of one of my favorite book titles, Freedom From the Known by Krishnamurti. Perhaps it is the immersion in so much nature at one time and the lack of electronic pollution, television, radio, cars, and planes. The silence is stunning. In its embrace, I am whole and home again. In this place, it is possible to discover and celebrate the unity of my existence with that of the infinite creation of which I am a part. From this place of unity, personal expressions can flow effortlessly.

To have finally found the place I can call home is the most wonderful gift of my life. I feel totally at peace here and look forward to sharing my discovery with my closest friends and family. It’s not Vilcabamba by itself, mind you, as wonderful as it is, but the intoxicating combination of a world-class community with a year round temperature range of 60-80 degrees, the sheer majesty of the Andes, the sound of the Vilcabamba River, the butterflies and flowers, an ever changing symphony of clouds and sunlight, and the silence of this peaceful valley that has captured my heart and soul.


So you can see why I will be providing you material to read in the weeks before we go, so that we can have a relaxed course, which is creative rather than heavily educational. By accessing the peaceful energy we can all channel new insights on human evolution, feel and tune into the energies we talk about.

The Enchantments of Life is a organically growing structure, it is a highly sophisticated integral map but an open map, not a map that closes the mind, that actually stimulates new questions.

I expect we will all come away from this experience not only refreshed and feeling somewhat blissful but with a clearer view of our personal lives and purpose in a changing world.
