Casa Del Sol holds a special place in my heart since I attended the 12 day retreat in February 2019. This was my second time using plant medicine in the past few years. I chose Casa Del Sol by the many recommendations for Santiago & Ximena because they are true Shamans and indeed they are. As well I wanted to work with a few different plant medicines & be apart of a smaller group. It was also important for me to experience nature’s powerful healing energy in a lush green mountain setting, which they have created a wonderful comfortable home by the river & powerful healing ceremonial spaces on their property.
I felt safe & comfortable the moment I arrived but I have to be honest, my experience during the first ceremony was not what I hoped for and was quite difficult for me. The day after I thought maybe plant medicine wasn’t for me and I should leave the retreat. I spoke with Ximena about this and thanks to her I stayed experiencing strong transformative healing throughout the remaining ceremonies. I left the retreat having gotten more than I EXPECTED & EXACTLY what I needed. It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve returned home with the first few days being extremely challenging for me but since then with daily integration of the lessons I learnt & more being revealed, life continues to unfold for me in the most beautiful magical ways I used to only dream about.
I was HUMBLED, HONORED & filled with BLISSFUL GRATITUDE to have had the opportunity to sit in ceremony and work with Santiago & Ximena. Thank you so much for sharing your teachings, traditions, wisdom & love with All my Relations.
I look forwards to returning January & February 2020.
