90′ Grande Laberinto Inkaland Hotel

The Incaland Resort Labyrinths

In the late 1990’s near the bustling village of Urubamba, located in the very heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the Incaland Resort had become a tribute to the Labyrinth. Spiritually oriented groups stopped in frequently to walk the meditation gardens on their way to Machu Picchu. Located an hour from Cusco in the Andean sub-tropics of the Urubamba Valley, the resort was a peaceful base for one of the most important travel adventures in the world.

The Incaland Hotel was sold in 2008 and demolished, on its grounds now stands the luxurious 5-Star resort, Tambo del Inka. The original rock labyrinth near the pool became the foundation for the new resort. If you stand in the lobby you can still feel its energy. The stone finger labyrinth that was sandwiched high inbetween the limbs of the Eucalyptus tree, continues to adorn the gardens.

Dowsing the beautiful wooded hilltop sanctuary were great leys of energy and water crossing – electric and magnetic vortices, here I placed the labyrinth atop one of the centers, closely adjacent to Hildegard’s quarters. It was marvelous work supported by the Nuns at Bingen and the Baron who owned the property. I am told that the labyrinth has been walked by tens of thousands of pilgrims.
