About Andrea Mikana-Pinkham

Co-Founder and Director of Sacred Sites Journeys
Tour Director and Featured Speaker/ Meditation Facilitator

AndreaMikana-Pinkham-April2012.jpg (35185 bytes)Andrea Mikana-Pinkham has over 25 years of experience in the sacred travel field. Her journey began in 1993 when she and her husband, author Mark Amaru Pinkham, founded a sacred travel company after their first trip to Peru, taken to complete the research for Mark's first book, The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom, which has since become a very popular classic. 

Andrea operated a sacred travel company for seven years, before teaming up with another sacred travel company in late 2000. She was the Director of the Sacred Journeys division of the company from that time until leaving at the end of 2008, to resume operating her own sacred travel company again.

Andrea is familiar with the operations of sacred programs on all levels. She directs the day-to-day tour-related operations. She also takes advance trips to countries where Sacred Sites Journeys offers tours, to meet with land operators, guides, hotel and restaurant owners, as well as local artisans, musicians and spiritual leaders. She creates, prices, advertises and promotes these sacred travel programs.

Andrea is the Tour Director as well as the
Speaker & Meditation/Sacred Ceremony Facilitator on Sacred Sites Journeys to the world’s most important sacred sites.

In 1995 Andrea Mikana-Pinkham began channeling The Kumaras during a journey to Mt. Shasta in northern California, the holy mountain that the Kumaras retreated to during the time of the destruction of most of Lemuria. A new era was dawning in Earth, so Andrea was chosen to be the mouthpiece for the important Messages that the Kumaras would transmit to evolving humanity. Since that time Andrea has been receiving regular messages which she typically has only shared verbally. Only now, in 2020, has she received the guidance to share them online  - The Kumaras Messages to Humanity.

Andrea is a teacher in the The Seven Rays Order and Mystery School She is a trained Andean shamanic practitioner, Reiki Grand Master of Ichi Sekai (One World) Reiki, and a spiritual counselor.

About Mark Amaru Pinkham

, Astrologer, Co-Founder & Featured Speaker of Sacred Sites Journeys

redball.gif (144 bytes) The Seven Ray Order & Mystery School

The Seven Ray Order and Mystery School
is a mystery tradition that has existed since the dawn of humanity.
These ageless mysteries and their wisdom are resurfacing now.
They are needed on a much larger scale than ever before as many seekers on Earth
are now provided the opportunity to learn many lost teachings
and alchemically rise to a new level of expanded spiritual awareness.
The revival of the rainbow symbol of the Seven Rays is also important now.
It represents all races and countries that are destined to reunite into
a one-world humanity in the near future.

Mark Amaru Pinkham is the Founder/Director and Lead Teacher

More About Mark...

redball.gif (144 bytes) Life Experience

Mark has been gathering the wisdom contained within his books since 1976 when, at 21, he traveled across Europe and Asia to India. He resided for seven years within the ashrams of the yoga and meditation master Swami Muktananda. During that time Mark intensively studied the Hindu scriptures, as well as the wisdom compiled by the Theosophists of India regarding the secret history of Earth. Since 1996, Mark has been a student of Mata Amritanandamayi, the "hugging saint" from India, and has resided in her ashram in south India. 

Since 1990 Mark has been involved in intensive research regarding the secret mysteries of the Earth’s esoteric history. During this time Mark has been initiated into two Andean esoteric societies, apprenticed to a master shaman in Peru, and helped lead an expedition in search of a secret monastery in the Andes. While leading tours he is  continuously gathering new information about the esoteric origins and the lineages of spiritual teachers that have guided humanity’s spiritual destiny.

Mark has spoken at many conferences and seminars during the last 26 years that are too numerous to mention here.
