I’m not sure words can describe how utterly powerful and amazingly beautiful this retreat is – having gone twice now (and having travelled specifically from Australia) I can say without a doubt it is worth every single second of your time, your money, your energy and effort. All the other reviews are true, the food and accommodation provided is beyond expectation for Colombia. You are looked after and cared for much like as If you were family. My single belief is that everyone owes it to themselves to try the spirit and magic of the vine, if you try it anywhere, look and think no further, ECA has you covered. Bobby, Hans and Jesse are incredible souls, who each radiate their own special energy which will come to spread joy throughout every single aspect of the retreat and your experience. I’m the kind of person (a near perfectionist) so quick to find fault in things, however the degree of integrity and honesty that these guys carry through this retreat cannot be faulted. Grieson and Gonzalo are very special people – the energy and feeling in their presence is incredibly grounding. Gonzalo is also very funny too! As for the yage / aya ceremony I can say I have never experienced anything so incredibly profound, astounding and powerful, and mysterious – the medicine’s are truly that, medicine for the soul. And the healing, wow! Also, daytime ceremony is pretty much as close to heaven as I think it gets. I’m planning my third visit hopefully for sometime later this year but without a doubt my relationship with ECA will be lifelong and I have no need to feel I would ever go anywhere else – life changing!
