Our Guides

Peter Evans

peterAfter realising that I had a pattern or two in my life that did not serve me, I decided in my 30’s to look around for techniques that I could use to change these patterns. From 1985 onwards I started off with what was then called re birthing, now conscious connected breathing. Then I went on to learn many techniques from hands on healing, conflict resolution, stress management, counselling, gestalt therapy techniques, inner child work and massage. I now have over twenty years’ experience in facilitating groups, with a very strong commitment to supporting people to heal themselves.

The Myburgh Family

familyLesley Myburgh and her twins sons, Mark & Simon, are Another Planet Peru and have lived in Cusco for decades. Lesley will be our hostess and San Pedro facilitator and will lead our San Pedro journeys at her home high above Cusco. The Myburghs have mastered the arts of generosity and of looking after people. Simon & Mark are our ‘men on the ground’ and will look after you and all of your needs with true willingness and care.

Luis Quispe
luisLuis Quispe is a member of the Q’ero tribe, the Wisdom Keepers of the Andes. Having shared a close relationship with the Myburgh family for years, Luis enjoys holding space for the groups that come to Cusco. He will be leading us in sacred ceremony in the Andean tradition and will be our spiritual guardian. He is an incredibly gently soul and we all will be greatly nourished by his presence on our journey through this most sacred of valleys. Luis also gives coca readings if asked.

Maureen Santucci Lac, LMT

She holds a Master’s Degree in Chinese Medicine, with a specialty in Orthopedics, and has studied over 1000 hours of massage coursework. Typically, she uses a variety of therapies within her sessions, depending on your needs. Among the modalities that may be included are acupuncture, Swedish massage, deep tissue, Zen Shiatsu, cranial sacral and Reiki.

The Healing Plants

According to the Peruvian Shaman of the Andes and Amazon, all plants possess a consciousness, and it is the spirit of the plant, not its chemical ingredients that grace us with healing and self-understanding.

Although all plants are considered sacred by these Indigenous Healers, there are a precious few plants that are revered as teachers. The Shaman claims that these Ancestral teacher plants are here to help humanity to heal and awaken to our full potential. The Shamen’s believe that these plants are messengers of the earth calling us back into harmony with nature and union with Spirit. The sacred use of ancestral medicine plants offers us a rare opportunity to transcend and transform our conditioning, opening the door to incredible transformation and miracles in our lives.

Wachuma

Wachuma (San Pedro) has been used for more than 4,000 years in Peru for the purposes of healing, divinisation, and expanding consciousness. This cactus is cherished by the Andean people as a powerful medicine, a sacred teacher and healer plant, and a doorway to the spiritual world.
Wachuma is a powerful catalyst for healing, meditation and self-understanding. Just as Ayahuasca is experienced as a Feminine teacher plant, the Andean Shaman of Peru views Wachuma as a benevolent Masculine teacher plant.
Each ceremony with Wachuma produces a gentle, yet profound shift in consciousness, helping us to heal the wounds of the past, while opening us to a more heart centred and conscious way of being.
