I attended the Eagle Condor Alliance retreat two times with my gf over the course of 1 year. The first retreat was in September 2015, the second retreat was in March 2016. Going into the first retreat I had many afflictions, drug, alcohol and family related. This was a prime motivator for the medicine calling me. Also my relationship was near breaking point so something had to give. From the first screening process to when you get there you feel like you are at home, where you are meant to be and that continues when you’re on retreat. When you get there you are going to ask 1000 questions and Bobby, Jesse and Hans will answer them 10 fold, more than you’d expect, about the plants and your behaviour and critical analysis of yourself and how that all relates back to the plant. You are probably thinking why did I go twice if it’s so good. The first round got me physically clean and the second round got me emotionally clean, with my insecurities etc. The fact is you can never have enough medicine. I had to go cold turkey on my SSRI’s in the weeks leading up, and I haven’t taken them since. It really has been the most positive experience. My gf and I intend to get married by Gonzalo and Grieson because without them we wouldn’t be where we are today or even together for that fact. We plan on being heavily involved with them for the rest of our lives from donations, to recommendations so they can continue to heal people from around the world. We haven’t had experience at other retreats but we don’t feel like we need anything else either – thats our home. The retreat itself isn’t easy but personal healing isn’t meant to be easy either – the challenge is healing yourself.
