Programs

MYSTICAL + ANDEAN MEDICINAL PLANT SPANISH
(1 week minimum)
Starting date: Any Monday
Level of Spanish required: Intermediate +

This course combines both Mystical Spanish and Andean Medicinal Plant Spanish. Students will learn how to respect nature and learn how it is responsible for curing people. The perfect combination for those who love non-traditional western medicine.
This course takes place both in Cusco where the student will learn about the medicinal plant course and Spanish Grammar, and at Huasao a small typical village south of Cusco where the students will learn about Andean rituals and ceremonies.

Our course begins on Monday. The student will be introduced to the family he or she will be staying with on Sunday and will spend the entire week living with them

SCHEDULE
Day 1 (M): Our Spanish lessons begin at 9:00 A.M. and will last 2 hours followed by a 15 minute break. Immediately after this we will have a lecture introduction the students to Andean Medicinal Plants.

Day 2 (T): We will have our Spanish lessons for 2 hours followed by a break. Our next Andean Medicinal Plant lecture will follow and then a visit to Doctor Valdivia, the only Doctor in Cusco who works with Medicinal Plants

Day 3 (W): Spanish lessons and a visit to the University and local markets to observe the way indigenous people trade these plants. Some processed plants will be given to our students.

Day 4 (Th) We will have our regular Spanish lessons at our school, then a break and our fist lecture on Andean Mysticism. You will have lunch with your family and by 3:00 P.M: you will be taken to Huasao and be introduced to the Shaman who will lead this part of our course and guide you through the Spirit cleansing session.

Day 5 (F): We will have our last Spanish lesson and our final Andean Mysticism lecture. After having had lunch at your family’s home and rest, we will take you to Huasao again to learn about the ritual on Pago a la Tierra (The Mother Earth Ceremony). You will be guided to make your own ceremony after seeing the shaman doing it so you could present your own offerings. This ceremony was held by our ancestors to thank the mother Earth for all the benefits they received from her and local Andeans still perform this ritual today. This is something you could do wherever you are.

We will be back in Cusco in the evening and next day we will visit the city during the morning. The Saturday night will be your last night with your local family.
