This experience is about llamas and human interaction. It has a design based on AAA (Animal Assisted Activity). You'll learn about their personalities, how they live, its history, food, the llama herd dynamic. You will experience the work they are doing in mental health and wellness. You will be part of their training for that purpose as well. Your participation in this experience will help them to learn more about human beings, and human beings learn more about llamas and the spirit of the Andes. This experience will be surrounded by live Andean flute ambiance to understand more their context and experience a little bit of the Andes and therapy work we are developing in Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI). You will learn about the spiritual aspect of llamas in the Andean cosmology and how important they were and are. Llamas carry meaningful messages to people and humanity. You might get several in your visit.
I am a peruvian, father, musician, AAI specialist (Animal Assisted Intervention), guide of andean spirituality, researcher of ancient musical instruments from Peru, andean sound healer and music producer. While living in Peru, I guided animal assisted interventions with horses and dogs and now training and working with therapy llamas. I began traveling the Americas in 2007, sharing my music, sound healing circles, workshops and retreats. I believe that through connecting with the power of nature, animals and music, we can bring ourselves into a deeper and higher understanding of our role as human beings in this experience of life, during these times of profound transformation of humanity.
This experience will be held at Llamas of Circle Home, a llama ranch in the sierra foothills of California that is dedicated to train and work with llamas as animals for wellness and mental health.
