I attended the retreat in November 2017. Before committing to ECA, I read all the raving reviews on the website, and I have to say they are all true!
I will add some things here that might have not been said so often.
First of all the setting of the retreat in the mountains above Medellin is absolutely beautiful and magnificent. The main house has a great vibe and serves as a meeting point and hang out for all the participants. It’s a great way to connect to people from all around the world while eating delicious and healthy food.
The retreat starts with an herbal bath. You get a bucket with hot water which has been boiling with herbs over an open fire outside the main house. You go to a spot overlooking Medellin where you strip down naked and pour this great smelling green brew over your body which is the best bath I ever had.
I had never done any yahe or san pedro ceremony so for me it was very important that somebody was there to explain and answer a lot of questions. Bobby and Jesse are really two of the nicest and most caring human beings I have ever met. They will explain in great detail everything you need or want to know about the ceremonies. I can’t stress enough how important it is to have two angels like Jesse and Bobby on your side who not only introduce you to a new chapter in your life but also guide you step-by-step through the process. They are literally there to hold your hand and will do whatever it takes so you have the best experience possible.
Besides the medicine being superb and strong you will meet two amazing, responsible and wise healers and listen to the most wonderful music during and after the ceremonies.
If you want to experience this plant medicine in a loving and safe place then you should join the ECA family.
