Into the Heart of the Sacred Valley
Machu Picchu Retreat - March 21-28, 2020
Is there something stirring in you that has been calling you to the Incan citadel of Machu Picchu and the ancient sites of the Sacred Valley of Peru?
Does it feel like goosebumps, past life connections, or that there are soul activations awaiting you in the shrouded mist of this holy high land?
If journeying into the Sacred Valley of Peru has been on your bucket list, but you’ve been awaiting the right invitation, this may it.
Imagine going on a Sacred Activation Journey to incredible Incan sites, while being together with your tribe of fellow lightworkers, many of whom you may have shared lives with there before.
Imagine having past life memories, cellular and DNA activations… having your intuitive gifts activated, or having spontaneous healing while being held in the energy of this sacred land.
Join Janet Raftis and Ina Lukas as your guides through the Sacred Valley of Peru.
Visit Cusco, Machu Picchu, have a New Moon ceremony in the Temple of the Sun. Explore the markets of P’isac. Get a private coca leaf reading with a Peruvian shaman, visit a Quechua mountain school with the heartfelt practice of ayni, an exchange with the children. Experience a group fire ceremony with a Q’ero, receive channeled activations in the ancient Incan Moray Circles.
Janet and Ina have created a mystical, magical journey to Peru, coordinated with the cosmic gateways of the Fall Equinox (Spring in the Northern Hemisphere), and the New Moon in Aries.
This retreat is designed to activate you and connect you into the energy of Pachamama - the heart chakra of the Earth. You will be experiencing multi-dimensional healing for yourself, the group, and the planet through sacred ceremony, energy work, channeling, and intuitive/spiritual development while being immersed in the richness of the Andean culture.
Keys and codes will be unlocked within you in this interdimensional experience. Awakening, deepening, remembering… who we are as leaders and planetary activators.
Janet and Ina are both healers, channelers, intuitives, teachers, and activators. Together they are bringing people to sacred sites around the globe to activate the deeper memory of who they are.
This journey to the Sacred Valley of Peru is bringing together an incredible tapestry of souls to do some powerful planetary work!
SORRY, THIS RETREAT IS SOLD OUT!
Join our retreat VIP list below to be the first to know when our next retreat is announced.
Janet and Ina are taking you on a dream activation journey through the Sacred Valley of Peru. We’ll be starting our adventure out in the city of Cusco, where we’ll walk through the cobblestone streets of San Blas, filled with Incan stonework en route to the Korikancha Temple, the holiest site during Incan times.
Imagine doing channeled activations and ceremony at the giant stones of Saksaywaman overlooking the city of Cusco. We’ll be visiting the Incan ritual fountains at Tampumachay, “Where there is water, there is life,” and participating in ceremony to honor Yaku, the spirit of water, to open the body’s energy centers and activate and enhance your individual creative and healing forces.
Partake in a traditional coca-leaf ceremony that invites you to tap into the energies of Pachamama, Mother Earth. You’ll also get a private coca-leaf reading with the authentic Pakko healer visiting from the high Andes.
We’ll do energy work at the Incan archeological site of the Moray Circles on our drive to Willka T’ika, our retreat center in the Sacred Valley, through spectacular Andean mountain scenery.
Imagine circling around our group fire ceremony with a Q’ero Pakko healer (a Peruvian shaman). We’ll have an authentic Andean offering and transformative fire ceremony, to honor Pachamama, yourself and your loved ones, with focused intentions. The ceremony will serve as a wonderful preparation of mind, body and spirit for our pilgrimage to Machu Picchu.
We’ll be visiting a Quechua mountain school in an isolated high mountain community where few tourists are privileged to visit. Experience the heartfelt practice of ayni, Andean reciprocity or exchange and interactive activities with the students. The warmth and joy of the children, and their openness in bringing guests into their daily lives are special moments not easily forgotten. A deeply moving, heart-opening morning.
On the New Moon in Aries, our guide will take us to the spectacular ruins of P’isaq. Overlooking impressive Incan terraces, we’ll hike to the Temple of the Sun, a doorway to the upper Andean world of the Condor, messenger of the Gods. This is where Janet and Ina will lead you in a New Moon Ceremony you will never forget.
We’ll have time to enjoy the main square of P’isaq, the famous, colorful market filled with woven goods, jewelry, wall hangings and hand-painted beadwork. Enjoy café or tea in the market square where you can observe colorfully dressed campesinos wearing traditional clothing coming to barter and sell their produce. P’isaq is a photographer’s dream!
We’ll spend an entire day at Machu Picchu, with a fabulous guided tour of the ancient “City of Light.” Janet and Ina will be doing channeled group activations in these sacred spaces. Experience a journey through the masculine energy temples of political and spiritual power, followed by a deep reconnection of feminine earth energies within the Divine Self.
We’ll hike to Inti Punku, the original Incan Gateway to the Sun or to the Incan bridge.
We’ll be visiting the ceremonial site of Ollantaytampu and its famous Sun Temple in the quaint picturesque town.
Enjoy a guided morning hike to the town of Urubamba through farming neighborhoods. You’ll have an opportunity to visit a typical, lively Peruvian market, a high-quality alpaca factory store and the famous Seminario ceramics shop.
Peru’s Sacred Valley is one of the most energetically charged and magical places on earth. It is filled with sacred sites where people have gathered and worshipped Pachamama - Mother Earth - for centuries.
The epicenter of the Inca civilization, with nearby Cuzco being its capital, the Urubamba Valley is home to many sacred sites which can still be visited today.
Each of these sites holds its own special energy, its own signature buzz, that when tapped into, can open you up to activations and alignment with knowledge, downloads and upgrades from the Inca as well as from the celestial entities - goddesses, gods and star beings - that supported the civilization during its rise and even now through the energetic vibrations that pulse through the land.
To be in the sacred valley is to experience these energetic pulsings firsthand and to be uplifted and shaped by them, crafted into a more expansive version of yourself.
Snuggled within this loving heart center of pachamama, Willka T’ika is a premier luxury retreat center that has been hosting visitors to the Sacred Valley for over 20 years. And we’ll be staying 7 nights here (and one in Cuzco!), soaking it all in, connecting and celebrating in ceremony, receiving activations, channeling the energies of Pachamama and other divine beings, visiting powerful sacred sites, and experiencing the most profound expansions.
WILLKA T’IKA - OUR RETREAT CENTER:
We’ll be staying at Willka T’ika, the number one luxury garden retreat center in the Sacred Valley. When we’re not adventuring out to sacred sites, we’ll be having lots of down time to unplug and connect at Willka T’ika. Janet and Ina will lead you in group ceremonies here.
The Seven Chakra Gardens – Guests are welcome to experience the rejuvenating energies in each of the seven Chakra Gardens to explore and tap into personal healing power with Pachamama, Mother Nature. Each Chakra Garden focuses on one of the seven energy centers, from the base to the crown chakra, and offers a uniquely charged sacred space for group or personal work.
Willka T’ika’s Ancient Lucuma Tree – The Chakra Gardens 1,000+ year-old Lucuma tree, with its tremendous healing earth energy from a pre-Inkan era anchors the gardens and provides a place of revitalization and inspiration for guests in need of integrating their body, mind and spirit. Some believe Willka T’ika’s Lucuma tree is one of approximately 365 shrines located along Inkan Empire seques, the forty or so straight lines emanating from Cusco’s Korikancha Temple that run for hundreds of miles toward celestial points on the horizon.
Grand Spiral Walk – Guests can align with the powerful Sacred Valley energies in the Spiral Garden of the third eye Chakra Garden. Walking the Spiral is an experience in releasing unwanted energies, and moving deeper into expanding consciousness. Opening the third eye chakra to intuition and higher reflection can open the personal path to greater awareness and wellness.
Optional Spa Treatments – Willka T’ika offers a range of therapeutic, Andean-style spa treatments to restore the body and rejuvenate the spirit including massage, reflexology, facials, shiatzu, hot Incan stone massage, aromatherapy, and two unique Willka T’ika experiences:
Andean Solar Baths – In this magical setting, experience an outdoor floral bath under a night sky bejeweled with the Milky Way, ch’askamayu. In this solar bath carved from natural stone and energized by the sun, Nature invites you to submerge yourself in the steaming water infused with healing vibrations of select Willka T’ika’s fragrant flowers, medicinal plants and Maras organic salts.
Crystal Light Therapy – Originating in Brazil, this therapy combines color, light, quartz crystals, and music to clear and realign the body's chakras, healing physical, emotional and spiritual illnesses. As you lie on a bed with your eyes covered and the lights rotate, still your mind, relax, and allow your energy centers to rebalance.
Start your day in the crisp mountain air with local freshly harvested herbal tea or fresh roasted Quillabamba coffee grown on staff family farms. Stimulate your taste buds with fresh subtropical Machu Picchu fruits and avocados, locally harvested breakfast grains and omelets made from completely organic, hormone and chemical free eggs from Willka T’ika’s own free range chickens.
For lunch and dinner, enjoy the richness of a cuisine created through the fusion of Andean, American, South Asian and African foods lovingly prepared from foods grown locally and on site in gardens. Vegan, gluten free and special dietary requests can be honored.

Janet Raftis, Master Energy Healer and Divine Feminine Channel
Janet has been playing with energy for her entire life, but she started playing big about 15 years ago.
Through energy healing, Janet began a process of deep and transformational healing that has resulted in a complete turn of circumstances in her life.
Moving through addictions, traversing deep emotional wounds, and assuaging trauma for herself and now thousands of others has led her to a deep understanding of how we are influenced and affected by trauma in the physical world along with an ever expansive understanding of Spirit and our relationship to her.
As a highly sensitive empath and psychic medium, Janet has learned to master energy so that she and those she teaches can feel empowered and graced by their sensitive natures.
She acts as a channel for the Divine Feminine and in addition to her healing and intuitive work, she hosts women’s circles, workshops and retreats around the world.
Janet’s approach to Spirit is deeply reverent while simultaneously being irreverently FUN! Laughter is a deep heart opener that allows us to more fully connect with one another and with goddess as it prepares us and allows us to receive more deeply.

Ina Lukas, Intuitive Channel and Shamanic Healer
Ina grew up in rural Wisconsin, but spent every winter living in a tent in the jungle in the Yucatan, which is where she came into her spiritual awakening as a teenager, connecting to the sea, laying under the stars, hiking to her own private Mayan ruin each day. She connected into animal spirits, learned how to communicate with fish and the underwater realm. Her annual pilgrimage to the Yucatan was her church. It was where she connected to the Earth, to Mayan culture, to frequencies, to rhythms, to light, to sound, to other beings in the Universe, but most importantly to her own spirit.
Through her early life experiences visiting Sacred Sites in Central America and Europe, and living an out-of-the-box childhood, Ina connected into the non-physical realm, and planted the seeds for being a planetary activator.
Ina works with people around the world in private one-on-one sessions, and leads workshops and international retreats. She is a gatherer/summoner, helping people activate their intuitive gifts and skills, and access the power of their soul lineage to bring their bigger work into the world.
Ina channels a collective of non-physical teachers and healers called The Alchemists. They have come through Ina at this time to assist us in our process of awakening to our gifts, shifting into a New Earth, and remembering who we truly are.
Together with the Alchemists, Ina has helped people around the world free themselves from weight issues, phobias, anxiety, parenting problems, financial fears, business blocks, health issues, and more.
Ina’s unique approach combines playfulness and levity, with laser-focused intuitive skills, shamanic healing, and interdimensional soul work that allows people who are ready to create a shift in their life have fast, fun, life-changing results.
She lives and plays in her Magic Treehouse in Encinitas, California with her two awesome teen kiddos. And if there was just one thing that truly makes her heart sing, it’s hugging people and holding them in pure unconditional love.

What People Are Saying About Janet and Ina's Retreats
Attending Ina’s Tulum retreat in February was one of the best decisions of my life. Ina created a space that offered unconditional support and love as well as unwavering strength and belief in each one of us. With her support, as well as my new “sisters”, we each were able to rapidly heal deep triggers within our souls and bodies so we could be fully present in this life again. Ina’s spirit invites us to be vulnerable and share our hearts in a space filled with nurturing and joy and so much laughter. Ina authentically embodies joy, love, strength and a deep love for her fellow travelers in this journey of life. I am blessed to have met her and even more blessed to have her heal and help guide me when my own journey gets rocky or I just need a loving reminder that I am not alone in this journey.
Swati Stanley (Mayan Alchemy Retreat -Tulum)
I have been doing energy work with Janet for a little over a year and have just been waiting for the timing to work out for me to join one of her retreats. As soon as I saw this one and realized the dates would work, I jumped in without a second thought!
I had the best, most incredible, relaxing, calming time. I left feeling so much more connected and deeply rooted within myself. I left feeling physically and metaphorically lighter. And most importantly I left feeling filled with so much love and joy.
Working with Janet is like wrapping yourself in a warm blanket of light and calmness. She has such a soothing way of guiding you through whatever you are working on and lending her hand in helping you through your own self discovery.
I have felt so much more connected to my spiritual path since returning...so much more grounded and calm.
Torrey D. (Energy Explorer's Retreat)
I signed up for this retreat knowing that it would be a gift to myself and that I would benefit from my attendance upon returning. I also knew that I would meet some extraordinary people; people who are on a similar path to my own. I am always impressed by the magnitude of the magic that I experience and bring home with me following Ina’s retreats. It’s never what I expect to get, it’s always so much more. So much deeper! So much more focused and on target! It’s always what I need!
Denise C. (Bali Divine Feminine Retreat)
I really wanted to reconnect my body with my soul. Registering for the retreat without knowing anyone going allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and everyday routine. Initially, I was drawn to the "magical" aspect of the retreat but I left with SO much more.
It felt like a dream! All of the meditations were incredible and every single person there offered such unique energies and gifts to our group that in turn raised all of our vibrations as a whole. Janet and Scott were absolutely wonderful leaders of the group. Everything felt amazingly authentic and the retreat flowed so beautifully.
Janet is a dream come true. She offers so many helpful tools to navigate through life as an empath. She has opened my eyes to a world full of magic, hope, and dreams (and fairies!) that I had begun to think no longer existed. At one point on the retreat, I became very emotional. It was the first time in a very long time that I actually had a moment to listen in on how I talked to myself when I am completely alone, and it surprised me to hear how much I put myself down mentally. Janet took me aside and enveloped me with such love, understanding, and advice and it sincerely meant the world to me.
Since returning home from the retreat, I have noticed the feeling of connectedness to the world around me. The retreat has unquestioningly magnified my desire to plug back into myself each and every day, which in turn allows me to realize when I am in/or out of alignment. I feel awake to all that the universe can offer me and conscious of all the little gifts/synchronicities that I am now attuned with in my day-to-day life.
It was very challenging for me to leave such a warm, loving environment and such a sacred space. But I now have so many new like-minded friends who continue to inspire and connect with me on a daily basis! I would not have changed a single thing except for making the retreat even longer.
Danielle B. (Deepening Energy Exploration Retreat)
Ina, there are so many things I wanted to express to you and then they all collapse into one big love puddle. I sit here feeling my brand new heart and just sensing a calmness all around me.
Not only did you help me, this tin (wo)man gain a new heart, tap into the stillness and peacefulness and love within, but you affect so many more with the ripple effects of those whose lives you've changed. This is extraordinarily powerful. You are phenomenally powerful.
You are the epitome of Love. The words you speak, the way you work, the end result is a flowing of more love to everyone and everything you come into contact with. We were always destined to work/play together and you held the keys to shatter the walls around my heart and help me come into the fullness of who I really am. It's so easy to love you.
By the way, the retreats you hold are incredible: you choose a perfect venue, the staff are gods serving us all the time, the location is breathtaking, the food so delicious, the other souls are a wonderful match, the unfolding just what each of us needs and the end result is so much love and expansion. I never saw you drop any balls, I only saw someone who was pouring her heart into the experience ensuring everyone received the best outcome. You are so, so generous and I'm sitting here smelling the sweet fragrance of rose and smiling. From one control freak and organisational master to another, you did an awesome job at both retreats.
I have so much love for you and it’s so awesome I can feel it fully now! Not to mention the amount of appreciation that I feel too. Thank you for being that beautiful, fun, uninhibited, bright loving light that you are. Sending you the biggest heart to heart squeeze ever.
Laura P. (Bali Retreat and Mayan Alchemy Retreat - Tulum)
Janet created a sacred space for us to show up and be seen and to practice using our gifts. Her knowledge, wisdom and intuitive guidance runs deep. This retreat was a small taste of what she has to offer - I found myself hungry for more!
The shift I experienced at this retreat was life changing. My hope was to leave the retreat with a clear definition and understanding of what it is that I do and who I am and what my purpose is. I left with a clear picture of that, but also a better understanding of how very powerful my fear is and how rooted I am in the trauma associated with that fear. I know that until I release attachments rooted in fear, my gifts can’t shine very bright in the world!
The shift that occurred at the retreat was that very awareness followed by my willingness to do whatever work is necessary in order to heal. Since the retreat, Janet has moved me through that process rapidly! As we know, when those internal shifts happen, external miracles show up! And yes! Miracles are most certainly are showing up in my life everyday now! I am so excited and ready to get on with living my life and using my gifts to fulfill a calling I’ve been denying for too long.
And last, I know the work it takes to facilitate retreats, I know the energy it takes to hold space for what needs to show up. I know how the land itself plays an important role in the work we all do, and I have to say, Janet did a GREAT JOB! As did Fire Creek Mountain! The entire package was perfect!!
