Reviews of Paths to Pachamama

A smile-creating reading, full of lessons and insights! As I recognised myself in some of them, I felt very connected to these words that I was happy to see written! For those who travel, or wonder if this would be a good step to take in their life, these true stories reflect how powerful it can be to leave our network of social habits, creating space for higher interventions.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone that has questions and doubts about the coincidental nature of the events that happen in their life or the desire to open their mind to a wider reality, as this is the power of these words.                       

- Jeroenix13

The book contains a mixture of travel stories, adventures, narratives about their friends and the people they met, their backgrounds, their views on subjects such as the universes, its origin and meaning, quantum physics and its laws, how energy transcends matter, universal consciousness, etc. while in the end providing their tips and guidelines for achieving transcendence.

Both of these authors have distinct writing styles that are each relatable in and engaging in their own way. Overall, Paths to Pachamama is a sincere, genuine attempt to pen their thoughts and write their experiences which are both entertaining and educational.
