The retreat at ECA was a magnificent experience, a transformative process that starts before getting there and continues after leaving. The entire ECA community is absolutely great, you will feel welcome right from the beginning as everybody is extremely helpful and loving. For me, one of the most important aspects was the ever-present respect for the ancient traditions. This does not only hold true in ceremony (be it yage, san pedro, temazcal or tobacco) but also for all times in-between ceremonies. Next to the importance of carrying out a retreat in that way, as it will allow you to get the most out of the process, this respect for traditions also gives participants a lot of ideas on how to improve their everyday-lives. I can therefore only recommend this retreat to everyone who is serious about turning to the ancestral traditions for healing and changing their lives. Of course, every part of the ECA experienxe contributes to that: the medicine, the structure of the retreat, the amazing food, the atmosphere, the location and so many other aspects were responsible for all group participants to be left with a very deep feeling of thankfulness towards ECA.
