Orillas del Río Uchima, Barrio Sacapo, Parroquia San Pedro de Vilcabamba, Loja, Ecuador
Last June , l spent 10 days in casa del sol. The most challenging but incredible experience in my life. It was a last minute decision but The best decision ever. I have been suffering from anxiety since this year, everything in my life was becoming fear. I was detached from myself, from everything.
What attracted me a la casa del sol was the fact that santiago and Ximena work with different plant medecine, specially San Pedro and also with small group. We had the chance to be only 6 participants. It made the retreat really intimate and special! We were like a family
The casa del sol is an isolated paradise where you can Rest peacefully surrounded by nature. It was home. Nati was always caring and making delicious and nourishing meals.
What l like the most during my journey is the discovery of the shamanic traditions. how it is important for Ximena and Santiago to share it with everyone by explaining the meaning of everything, How much knowledge and passion they have when they share it, sharing their life and unconditional love.
I did 2 hikes with San Pedro, one at the waterfall and the other one on the sacred feminine Montana. Both experience were incredibly amazing and rewarding.
I’m really blessed today that our path crossed , l learnt so much about myself through their guidance and support. I went through darkness during ceremony at the beginning of the retreat where l had to meet my anxiety but l always fell safe and in good hands. The icaros(songs) were so beautiful and powerful, they still resonate in me. The second part of the retreat , I was able to surrender my anxiety and had no more fear of life.
Santiago, Ximena and Matteo through their speech, songs and intentions ; opened deeply my soul, helped me connected with my inner self, the animal spirit , pachamama, the water , the sun….
They Are pure love , pure kindness.
They shared with me The first emotion everyone needs to fully live: Love.
