I have had the honor and pleasure to have Vera as a guide on several trips. When traveling to Peru and to England, Vera immersed us in the experience on many levels. She works with people to provide both historical information and spiritual occurrences. These are not guided tours - they are transformative experiences. Vera holds space for each person in the group with no expectations, allowing healing and transformation for every individual. There are many “A-ha moments” felt deep in your being, at a soul level. Although in a group, each person has their own experience unique to them.
San Miguel de Allende provided a different experience for me. I trusted that Vera would magically combine her gifts with the loving skills of others to provide, again, something that changed my life. Working with Vera, Jim Hostler, and Ann Webb was incredible. Each of them brought something different to the week, and the result was a synergistic masterpiece. Areas of my life and different aspects of myself came together like a puzzle. I also know that the finished product, “me”, is ever-changing. I have new tools to trust and enhance this evolutionary process called life.
I step in with an open heart. No matter the place or the focus, Vera loves to provide a full and rich experience, allowing time for fun, relaxation and integration of the body, mind and spirit.

Exploring the earth and your inner self with Vera Lopez is an amazing experience. The Shamanic Mysteries of the Sacred Heart Retreat in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico was the third journey I have taken with Vera and Spirits of the Earth. We also journeyed to Machu Picchu and sacred places in Peru in 2019 and then to Stonehenge and other sacred places in southwest United Kingdom in 2022. All of these trips are amazing as Vera blends exploring yourself and sacred places with learning ancient traditions and growing spiritually. She is a master at creating the perfect mix into a trip of a lifetime by incorporating spiritual development, self-growth, and energetic healing along with experiencing magical places up close, exploring new cultures, fine dining, shopping, and wonderful accommodations. Vera’s own spirituality, love, and positive energy makes her a fabulous teacher and a wonderful person to explore the universe with.

I love traveling with Vera Lopez and fellow travelers, drawn to “Spirits of the Earth’s” adventures.
My life long desire to explore Machu Pichu, Peru, was fulfilled when I learned a girlfriend and her new friends on the West Coast had hired Vera Lopez and “Spirits of the Earth” to guide them there. I JUST HAD TO GO on the already full trip, even though I only knew my friend and we lived in different cities. . . . . I did! It changed what was possible for me and brought “magic” into my life.
The sacred sites we visit are beautiful and located in the most incredible natural environments.
I feel awe. (Sedona, Arizona red rocks; Glastonbury, England and Avalon; Canadian forest and lakes; Cusco, Peru and Machu Pichu).
Myths and legends cloak these places of powerful energy and as I learn of them, my knowledge expands. ( Stone Henge, Egyptian Pyramids, Hopi Indian Reservation, Arizona; Ste. Marie de la Mer, France).
We may participate in rituals and ceremonies which transport me and give me my own experience of the power of these sites. I connect to a higher vibration and state of consciousness. (Full moon ceremony on Solstice, Machu Pichu; Awakening the Heart, San Miguel de Allende, México).
Whether in Peru, Brazil, Sedona, Arizona, England, France, Egypt, Spain, Canada, or Mexico, I learn and grow in the safe company of like-minded women. I make new friends, have a lot of fun and laughter, sight see, hike, and in between levitations (Gotcha! HaHa) enjoy shopping and of course fabulous food. What’s not to love?
These soulful adventures are FUN and connect me both to ancient wisdom, which my life takes on as I go home and then shows up as greater kindness or compassion to myself and others. Thank You Vera Lopez and to my fellow travelers.
In 1993, I had the honor and privilege of meeting Vera Lopez, who led me and a group on a spiritual journey to Machu Picchu, which was one of the most unforgettable and fulfilling experiences of my life. However, my recent trip to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in March 2023 for the "Shamanic Mysteries of the Sacred Heart Retreat" surpassed even that.
Vera's impressive bio speaks volumes of her professional expertise in leading spiritual tours across Europe, Africa/Egypt, and now Mexico. The itinerary for the retreat in October is well-organized with the best hotels, food, and transportation that Mexico has to offer. The daily assimilation with the locals was my favorite part of the trip, and I am sure it will be yours too.
As a retired schoolteacher of 25 years and now 76 years old, I can attest that Vera and Jim are worthy of an A+++ ❤️🇲🇽.
The trip to San Miguel Allende was informative, exciting, and most importantly, life-changing. In fact, it was so impactful for me that I have decided to move to San Miguel soon. The city is safe, clean, and awe-inspiring, with plenty of opportunities to explore the cobblestone streets and indulge in the local culture. Visiting the central area near the cathedral, listening to Mariachis sing and play instruments while people danced, and exploring local boutiques, specialty stores, and coffee shops were just a few of the highlights of my trip. Vera avoids the tourist traps, which I appreciated, and every day was full of astonishing surprises. I have plenty of beautiful videos and pictures to cherish forever. San Miguel de Allende here I come. 🇲🇽 ❤️🥰💃
