Your Guides

Eleanora Amendolara: The founder of the Sacred Center and the creator of the Chumpi Illumination healing system, Eleanora has been visiting Peru since the mid-1990s. Her heart was thrown wide open as she traced her way through ancient temples, meditated on mountain tops, and experienced visions at the edges of lagoons.

Simply being in the presence of the Q’ero elders and the indigenous peoples taught her about how to exist in true harmony with all that is. She constantly works to root that sense of harmony at the Sacred Center in Warwick, NY and inspire her students and clients to discover their own connection to Spirit and to the Greater Reality.

Natasha Amendolara: The trip administrator and “go to” person. She is Creative Arts Therapist who has travelled with Eleanora to three of the major sacred mountains including Ausangate, Salkantay, and Hatun Urqi.

Rulianov “Ruli” Ramirez Rios: Our indigenous guide, Ruli was born in Acomayo. Fluent in Quechua, the temples and Apus were his playground as a child. He has been part of Eleanora’s expeditions for ten years.
