Planning the Journey

Children’s Journey to Peru blog post, 6-23-12

So far…I have felt that the primary ceremony could be on October 12th, on Machu Picchu, perhaps departing the U.S. on the 1st.  Not so much time now for planning and fundraising, but enough… I’ve received two proposed itineraries from our guide in Peru – next step to take a look and customize for our group. With the first funds to come in, passports for the children and their parent/guardian and other elders and energy workers in a supportive role can be processed.

With the next round of funding, air plane tickets can be purchased – to get to Peru from wherever we’re all coming from, and within Peru getting around to the 2 or 3 places for ceremony – lodging then, and equipment and supplies.

I have contacted the orphanage in Cusco that I connected with 5 years ago, and inquired about the possibility of the children, us, somehow staying with them for our time in Cusco. They are about a 40 minute drive from Cusco.  It is coming to me just now in this moment that perhaps just the children and a few others of us can maybe stay there, and the rest, elders, can stay in Cusco. Heck, I’m probably in with that older group…not on these days!

I want to see what airlines might graciously and cleverly, considering the publicity and gratitude they could receive, donate miles, tickets, or enormous discounts.

There is a Hopi elder that works with their youth looking to select two young ones for this journey. Would be fabulous if those two could also participate in our upcoming Indigenous Conferences.

Title: Children’s Journey to Peru – For Earth and Peace

Supporting the Children’s Mission

The building of the journey, and the plan to make a documentary: Children about Children.

Carl’s thoughts and ideas, most significantly 1) for all the energy to come from the children, so, for the elders to send their energy to the children so it can go out through them, and 2) for other children in other areas to be invited to do an energy ceremony same day as our primary ceremony for the increase in overall energy output, and 3) for them to be photographed or video-taped for Carl to incorporate into one documentary film of the Journey.

For the traveling journey: Invite: Hawaiian, Hopi, Navajo, Mayan, American

Connect with Cusco orphanage, can stay with them? Would be fabulous to commune with Peruvian children. Ceremony with Peruvian children a key thing!

 

 

 

Goal: to have this mix of the beautiful children above, and these, in one picture…

…doing their work together.

 

For the gathering groups: Invite/ask the older youth that have been here, who are leaders in their own right by virtue of their open hearts, awareness of community/world issues, and dedication to making the world a better place…to gather and host children’s groups wherever in the world they might be on that day.  Next goal: to have all of the children aware of each other, in different areas, doing their work…in one larger group…together still.
