I have attended retreats in the past working with different plant medicines which is where I had originally crossed paths with Santiago. So, naturally when I found out that both Santiago and his wife Ximena were doing the work that they were doing in Vilcabamba I was naturally drawn.
I recently attended the 12 day women’s retreat that was part of Ximena’s beautiful dream and vision to provide women with a safe space to explore the depths of themselves and reconnect with their divine feminine. This experience has been unlike anything I have experienced thus far. Ximena and Santiago make it their mission to expose us who seek their teachings to all of their traditions and allow us to learn about this path they walk on a more intimate and integrative level so that we may take these teachings home with us and continue them and evolve them on our own.
I am so grateful to Casa Del Sol and the gathering of so many beautiful teachers in one place to facilitate growth in everyone who opens their hearts to its teachings. This experience at the women’s retreat has opened up a whole new level of understanding and depth to my purpose in this life and I know that this spirit family will always be close to my heart and I know I can call on them for anything.
If you’re thinking about working with plant medicines or just understanding yourself on a deeper level and healing certain patterns, traumas, etc. you definitely should consider Casa Del Sol because they facilitate your healing beyond the medicines and help you realize that YOU ARE The MEDICINE.
