Jorge had us follow him up the trail to this magical city in single file..climbing silently, stopping frequently to take in the energy of the mountain. We did an exercise at one point where we looked in to the sun, then closed our eyes & rotated our eyes in a clockwise motion behind our lids to open our 3rd eye
We went to another area where we could rest among the rocks & meditate for about 20 minutes. The rest of the day, we meandered through the ruins.
I didn't feel well, not well enough to hike around as much as I would have liked, but that was my lesson I think. I didn't need the physical contact to feel the ethereal energy of this powerful, city of light.
That evening we stayed in Aqua Calientes, which is adjacent to the Urabamba River. It was very charming with lots of shops & restaurants in the narrow pedestrian streets. I could hear the river from my room.
