What an incredible experience. Please do yourself the favor of going to participate in ceremony. Beyond the ceremonies, the guys running the retreat are amazing. Instead of continuing on and saying how amazing this place and the experience was, I will briefly explain one of the “a-ha” moments I had while on retreat……….Our lives, as the waves, will consist of many peaks, crests, crashes and “do-overs”. Cyclical. If we look closely at life we will see circles represented in some of the most intricate parts. A mother’s womb; a circular enclosure of sustainability. Our joints, bones, organs, etc… are all cylindrical in nature. Our lives go through cycles, the sun is a circle, the moon is a circle, the earth is a circle, our neighboring planets are circles. With all the cylindrical symbols that encompass the root of human existence, why are constantly putting ourselves or allowing ourselves to be put in squares and rectangles?? We are born in a square hospital room, we sleep in rectangular beds, we get put into a square classroom, we are glued to a square television and we allow ourselves to be ruled by a rectangular piece of paper we call a dollar……..Go to the Eagle Condor Alliance and have your “a-ha” moment!
