I?ve had the opportunity to sit in sacred ceremonies with varying traditions and countries, and the Eagle Condor Alliance group in Medellin holds an especially dear place in my heart.
Setting: The land and retreat homes are far enough away from the city to embrace a nature connection- it?s peaceful and quiet, beautiful morning silence! However they are also close enough for it to not be a huge undertaking of a journey and be able to have city time before or after as needed.
Teachers: Of those working with the group currently, I have sat with Gonzalo Aguila. I really appreciate his manner of keeping form and guidance in the ceremony while still allowing space for individual process and exploration throughout. He?s a caring, compassionate individual with a big open heart.
Accommodation: Wow are these houses little treasures on the mountain! Great beds, totally comfortable spaces, organized, beautiful views, It feels like home!
Hosts: Wow, how on earth did a trio of blonde guys from 3 different backgrounds wind up together in Colombia creating this beautiful project? It?s worth asking to hear their stories. These guys go above and beyond to make sure you?re well cared for and feel comfortable for your stay.
What I love most about here is that I leave feeling more like family than a visitor. The ceremonies have helped me a lot in my self-understanding and how I want to relate to the world. I leave with a ton of uplifted energy and watch it spill into the rest of my life. Looking forward to the next one, guys! Thank you!!
