Shamanic Marriage - Cusco
This is a real, ancient Andean and Inca ritual; it is a pact of union in front of the Inti Tayta (Father Sun) and the Pachamama (Mother Earth), two of the main gods in Inca religion. Its spiritual, mystical meaning and strength is said to be greater than the Christian marriage; it is done according to Inca wisdom, which believes in the subtle, spiritual energies inside nature. Thus Inti Tayta and Pachamama give their blessing to the union and will always send their positive energies to the couple and their children.
The Inca spiritual wedding is an oath that can not be broken by any of the partners, it is a sacred covenant with the energies of the Sun and the earth; it’s a union for the rest of their lives. If the vow was broken, the Incas thought negative energies will be sent to the couple; the Inca marriage does not allow infidelity, violence, arguments and so on, it’s a pact of mutual love, respect and happiness. The dissolution of an Inca marriage can only be done under the most extreme circumstances, and with the giving of offerings to the gods who blessed the union.
