Machu Picchu: An invitation to Adventure

Machu Picchu: An invitation to Adventure

This is an invitation to adventure.

I’ve often said, adventure is when you don’t know what’s going to happen next. If that were true, how much adventure is there in your life?


In the first week of August, Adam Quiney and I will be taking six leaders on a pilgrimage into the mountains of Peru. Our final destination: The ancient ruins of Machu Picchu.


To be completely honest, I mostly have no idea what’s going to happen and that’s what makes this such an epic adventure.

What I do know is this: This is my life’s work. Creating environments and transformative experiences that people talk about for the rest of their lives.


Whenever we adventure to a new place, we get to choose exactly who we want to be. Nobody knows you, you’re thousands of miles from home and you can be anybody you want.


High in the mountains of Peru and thousands of miles away from all that you know. Who would you choose to be?


These adventures almost always stimulate new ideas and perspectives that you couldn’t possibly have had in your “normal” home environment.


As you stand silent, overlooking the peaks of the Cordillera Vilcabamba, Pumasillo, and the Huayracmachay valley. What new possibilities might you create for you life?


Inevitably, when we’re outside of our comfort zone, there comes a time when we don’t want any more adventure. You crave the comforts of home. You just want to be back with people that just get you and your sense of humour.


As the high altitude begins to starve you of energy and you’re feeling tired and disconnected from the people around you, what might you learn about your own spirit?


A pilgrimage can ultimately be about healing and leaving something behind. Away from all the distractions of modern life, we have the time to process things that have happened, close certain chapters and put down that which feels heavy.


As you arrive at the top of the mountain and overlook the sacred site of Machu Picchu, what might you choose to leave behind?


The first adventure is a phone call with me. An exploration into some of these questions. A conversation where neither of us knows what’s going to happen.
