Wow. Such a truly incredible experience!… I attended a 10 day retreat in July, and am extremely grateful to the ECA family – it really was life changing for me.
I felt the program of the retreat was very well put together. In particular, the combination of the medicines and ceremonies of the north and south was excellent balance… providing for deep level of introspection and self-exploration.
The food was absolutely incredible, every single meal…Ellie is a wizard in the kitchen… fresh, delicious healthy dishes served with an abundance of love… truly the best I have eaten in years….and such a tranquil setting as well, it realty did feel like a home… plenty of comfortable, serene spaces to spend by yourself reflecting as well cozy communal spaces to come together as a group and enjoy the company.
The facilitators.. Bobby, Jesse, Hans.. just remarkable… they really have dedicated their lives to this cause. They are approachable, thoughtful, encouraging, knowledgeable, untiring and thoroughly organized. They clearly have an excellent understanding and relationship with the healers – Gonzalo, Greison and Cesar – who themselves are passionate and completely dedicated in their calling and working with these medicines, strong in character but humble and willing to help you learn and interpret your experiences. A great team.
It was indeed a big first step for me personally, and I really am looking forward to spending more time with the ECA family… and in the meantime can completely recommend this a retreat with the ECA family to anyone that is open to it!
