I had an absolutely amazing time here! Paco was a great Shaman, his music and singing sounded other-worldly during the ceremonies. He also had a great sense of humor. I was appreciative of the small groups during the ceremonies and the consultations the next day to discuss your experiences. The volunteers were on hand to help with water, tissues and getting you to the bathroom if needed. I followed the recommended diet the best I could leading up to the retreat, I think it helped nicely to adapt to the intermittent fasting and vegetarian diet while there. I had brought along snacks just in case, but I didn’t need them. The bananas here are so sweet. There was plenty of time between ceremonies, yoga, and meditation to reflect on your experiences, as well as get to know the other guests. Minny was a very cool and friendly dog! Chrissy was a wonderful host, she was quick to answer any questions and help to resolve any issues. The weather was warm during the day and quite cool at night. I would definitely go back and recommend this retreat to anyone.
