Orillas del Río Uchima, Barrio Sacapo, Parroquia San Pedro de Vilcabamba, Loja, Ecuador
I have to start by saying that Santiago work through a very specific lineage of life-long healers, not the ones that do bullshit energy work, REAL healers. The type of work that will take you back to your very core while understanding new and better ways of understanding life outside, with no need of explanations, impositions, or preconceived judgements. Personally I just came back from a Man Journey up in the mountains and had a very straight forward glimpse of what the medicine did for me (but cant put into actual words). Aside of Ximena, his wife, they both made the place feel like a real home and a familiar environment; which is a great thing for someone going through a complete every day in such a magical place.
The medicine offered is completely effective and should be taken with respect and precaution as one has to remember he or she is in someone else’s home. The room where you stay is cozy and full of wonders (specially while sleeping/dreaming), the rooms are feet away from a vibrant running river and under the clearest sky you’ve ever seen.
Never had a problem with food, everything was pretty tasty, it didnt feel like a “dieta” at all.
Overall, this is the place to stay if you want to really look within and cut the spiritual bulls**t off.
hope this info helps
