The Eagle Condor Alliance welcomed me upon arrival with the utmost love and respect; right away I knew that I had made a decision to come to a place that would forever change my life in many diverse ways. The ECA healers and facilitators were uniquely capable of guiding my journey and supporting my process day after day. The land in Santa Elena is powerful, magical, and the ceremonial spaces are pristine. The housing situation surpassed any expectations, leaving me entirely blissful between ceremonies in complete comfort and well-nourished with healthy meals. The combination of the various sacred medicines they work with allows an intense cleansing and stabilizing of our energy systems. The spirit of Ayahuasca blessed me with entirely different lessons than those that I encountered through the spirit of San Pedro cactus; they complemented one another wonderfully. Furthermore, the insight that I discovered through tobacco purging and the use of tobacco ceremonially was profound in and of itself. Sweat lodges after a long night of ceremony improved the quality of my experience dramatically- Another dimension of consciousness comes in. Not to mention mountainside basil/herbal baths! These guys are the most dedicated and sincere retreat group that I have ever encountered. Remember, too, that they are actively working to protect the Amazon rainforest and support indigenous elders. Truly amazing. I am in awe. After attending sacred medicine ceremonies in six different locations so far, I would without a doubt recommend the ECA community above all others. If you are interested in restructuring your paradigm of life, and experiencing sudden, unforgettable revelations and visions of the world which allow you a glimpse of the truth, then I would highly encourage you to trust yourself to heal and transform your suffering at one of their 10-day retreats. I wish you a pleasant journey, and every happiness.
