I’m not one to usually write reviews – but an experience as personal as plant medicine for healing, this may be the most important decision one makes.
Set and setting and intention bringing to the medicine is I believe the most important. The medicine gives you what you need and what she needs but to have a good place that you believe in the purpose and the reason for being there.. to have this aids so much of what you take out of it. Because the work starts at the center and follows you home where the hard work begins.
Casa del Sol is a family. Truly, and you feel part of it. It’s done for the right reasons and is meant to heal a sick world. Santiago and his family are amazing, they are kind, generous with words and time and will meet you where you’re at. I was just done with biking across Columbia and Ecuador in the Andes for 2 months, in a mindset feeling very connected with the earth and getting to know myself. Santiago graciously led me through my first ceremonies that only grew my connection to this beautiful earth, it’s spirits and the kindness I needed to find inside me.
If you have any doubts about doing medicine in South America anywhere – you should and you’re right. It may not be for you, or maybe not now. But this place and this family will give you the right set and setting to try it – if you believe it’s your path.
If it’s calling you, these people, this land, and the spiritual experience here is the right choice.
