Journey to Peru through the Lens of Chalay: Andean Culture & Connection to Food
Global Family Travels is pleased to offer a truly regenerative adventure in Peru with a lens on Andean culture and the sacred nature of food, land, and the people who cultivate it. In partnership with community organizations, ANDES Association, Potato Park and Awamaki, this journey through Peru’s Sacred Valley offers the opportunity to immerse and learn firsthand from farmers, artisans, and Indigenous peoples about ancient farming techniques and economic practices, traditions which have protected food sovereignty and biodiversity in the Andes, while adapting to the challenges of food security, climate change, water shortages, and biodiversity loss.
Participants on this trip will also learn about Chalay, the ancient Andean practice of bartering, or trading goods without the use of money. Through alternative economic systems, chalay strengthens relations between friends and families from diverse agricultural zones where seeds and food are thought to be members of the family.
Peru: A Regenerative Journey for Mother Earth, Sacred Traditions and Divine Feminine Energy

Global Family Travels is pleased to offer a 10-day regenerative wellness journey to the charming country of Peru focused on ancient Andean traditions of the Sacred Valley, learning how we can help heal our Earth and empower women.
