If you are reading these reviews and they spark something in your heart, please trust that feeling. I am so grateful I was led by my heart to this beautiful place. There is an incredibly strong and pure intention in the work that is carried out at the ECA. Hans, Bobby and Jesse were fantastic leaders. They guided us through a really integrated process from beginning to end. The principle of walking the path of the heart is encouraged through ritual, teaching and most importantly, by example. I am proud to have shared time with everyone I met there.
The ceremonies were life changing for me. I was incredibly grateful to be in the company of the healers Gonzalo and Greison who conducted the ceremonies with a magic and wisdom that is beyond me. It was my first time experiencing San Pedro and Ayahuasca, but I can tell that the medicines were very powerful and effective. The experience was indescribable and infinite. There was so much that I was shown by the medicine that it has changed me forever. It reconnected my towards my heart, my ability to love, my animal nature, and gave me a thousand lessons on gratitude, humility, compassion and respect. Thank you.
The set and setting of the whole retreat is perfect. Surrounded by beautiful trees and tropical birds and at 8,700 feet up in the mountain, I could think of nowhere I would rather go to reconnect. Everything is relaxed and inspiring. I must thank Elena for always preparing such delicious food with the warmest smile.
There is an authenticity, compassion, humanity and beauty to the whole process. I felt like I was always in safe hands. There is a great feeling of trust and warmth. I left feeling part of the ECA family, and I am forever grateful for my time there.
