Michael Wilson's Reviews
Have been back a week now from spending 10 days in the Jungle at Chakra Alegria De Amor, aka Rainforest Healing Center. I’ve scanned the other reviews here, and wholly endorse their enthusiasm. I’ve considered myself almost a professional skeptic most of my life. I was concerned at the time, cost, and various forms of self-denial that this trip would require; mostly concerned that it would amount to chasing rainbows. But desperation drove me to give it a try… and it was all I (the inner me, beneath the skeptic that has run my life) had hoped. In short, it was really, really (REALLY) hard, and so worth it. The people, (Eren, Muri, Omar, Juan) were amazingly genuine, open, caring, and insightful. It wasn’t just singing kum-ba-ya; was real, transformative, work. I have a hard time seeing how a club-med version could deliver the same. Also- the small group size they have at one time was… wonderful. We weren’t cattle, or ‘patients’; we had time to get to know each other, and the staff, which in turn allowed for impactful relationships to form. I’m so thankful to Omar for creating this space, and to Eren, Muri, and Juan for… sharing themselves. They say it’s a non-profit, and it clearly clearly is. It’s a labor of love for them all, and it shows. If you go, you’ll be challenged, but if you’re really seeking healing, and are open to it, you won’t be disappointed. I know in our group, we all have come away knowing this: We were in the right place.
