Orillas del Río Uchima, Barrio Sacapo, Parroquia San Pedro de Vilcabamba, Loja, Ecuador
Five stars state “near-perfect”, so I had no other choice however I would say “this is simply the place with the people” so just skip the word near!
The location in an epic neighborhood of Vilcabamba, directly on a bank of a river surrounded by beautiful hills and mountains of Andes. The Flocky (a dog) takes care of, anyway already given, security and Natalia serves delicious meals (very fresh and vegetarian) and takes care of our accomodation. So only thing to think about is our spirituality. Here the Ximena, Santiago and their son Matteo came into the game. Set of ceromonies of San Pedro combined with Rapé, Kambo, sweat lodge and finally Aya itself made the journey AMAZING with lots of thoughts to work on during my daily life. In addition, set of acctivities like yoga, painting workshop (to express ourselves in a different way), breathing classes and needless to say several sharing circles made the retreat PERFECT!
Communication with Santiago and Ximena before, during and after my stay is what i actually needed.
One day, after I execute teachings from the current retreat, I will be back to them to get know myself even better.
Thank you all for making this retreat possible!
