Peru is a far away land. It is filled with many wonders, more than we had ever expected. We knew we would see ancient ruins; we knew we would see the Nasca lines, eat different food, see beautiful art, magnificent scenery, hear wondrous folktales and legends and experience sacred rituals and ceremonies, and meet new individuals and "travelers." We were surprised though at witnessing our own personal experiences of spiritual, mental and emotional journeys that captured us moment to moment while traveling through unknown territories. We observed other's awe and transforming personalities throughout our entire trip. We are home now, looking through photos, mpegs and film, and still trying to remember and process our truly endearing journey to Peru.

We would like to thank every one for coming on this little expedition and sharing the moments; for each person was a character in the Peruvian experience. For us, we will always carry in our hearts very special moments of interaction with both you as a group and as individuals. We learned a lot about others, and ourselves. 

We hope every one who traveled on this tour experienced that which they were seeking and even found more than that which they were expecting. It was a most different journey for us; we have never been exposed to the wonders of such that we were at some of the ancient sites we visited in Peru. Peru is very different from the other ancient lands we have researched. The Nasca Lines were in many ways most momentous. We would like to go again sometime now that we are more understanding of the actual reality of being at those specific sites that were spectacular in every way. There were real moments that no books or photographs can ever depict in truth that are really “alive” and “being” in Peru. Once we are sorted out, we will be writing about some of our experiences and posting our photographs along with some Mpegs for you to see of the different sites. This will all take time. We ask you to please be patient again!

Thank you,

Land of the Ancient Incas
March 4 - 12, 2006

Dr. Robert Schoch, PhD
Dr. Colette M. Dowell

Journey with Dr. Robert Schoch, and Dr. Colette Dowell to the majestic land of the ancient Inca. From charming and picturesque Cusco, to the lush and verdant Sacred Valley of the Incas, and to enigmatic and mysterious Machu Picchu, the Crown Jewel of the Andes, Peru offers visually stimulating and profoundly nurturing experiences that will rejuvenate, restore and heal your body, mind and spirit…on deep levels!

A Personal Note by Robert Schoch and Colette Dowell

       Circular Times and The Official Website of Dr. Robert M. Schoch, have now been posting on the internet for approximately six months. I would like to thank everyone who has supported the new sites and been following the updates as they have been posted and being patient while I have been recreating  Dr. Schoch’s lost articles during the crisis in August of 2005.

        This is a reminder that I and Dr. Schoch will be in Peru during the first couple of weeks of March. Upon returning we will be posting new articles,  photographs and little ‘flicks’ of our expedition to Peru along with our recent lecture/conference held at the Museum of World Treasures in Wichita, Kansas.

        While in Peru we will be taking many photographs, shooting footage, recording native music and interviewing particular individuals who have knowledge of the ancient ruins we will be exploring. Please come back and check up on the sites as we further create new pages for your education and enjoyment. There will be more special guest articles and upcoming events posted. Watch for our little ‘flicks’ and enjoy what we will have to share after we return from our journey. The Phantom Punster will be updated with new views and comments to guide you through your days of exasperation. Look for new archived articles from Circular Times to be posted along with creative thoughts from special guests. More links to other informative sites will be added with unusual scientific findings and new technology and research. This all takes time to create and I do thank you for your patience in regards to the “Under Construction” period of the new sites.

Robert and I also want to personally thank Angela Praxter and PAL for keeping watch on the sites and managing our affairs while we are engaged in new studies and eager to return from Peru with amazing new and unique concepts and mysteries.

        Thank you,

                Colette Dowell & Robert Schoch
