Camino al Sol is a nonprofit community to share the love and messages of Sacred Plant Medicines, Ayahuasca, Coca and Tobacco. We are providing the Ayahuasca healing retreats in the United States and in Colombia. Camino al Sol community offers space for experiments, teaching, learning of different ritual and workshops to visitors who share their ideas. The main goal of our community is to safeguard cultures from the vulnerable environment and improving the quality of human life and communities. Our Shamans are skilled healers and elders from the Muinane and Siona tribes of Colombia. We only collect funds for Ayahuasca Retreat to help our Elders through education program, building and land preservation programs.
I agree with the poor reviews of Camino Al Sol (aka Origen Sagrada). It is a very unscrupulous and spiritually corrupt organization completely focused on money and exploiting people for their selfish gain. If you do a web search for the USA facilitators you will find they have judgments against them under a different name and were previously based in Las Vegas. Avoid these scammers for your own safety and health.
Toxic, sexist, and unsupportive. I would post the full story here, but the owners of the group (should I say cult?) had it removed from their Facebook. Almost everyone that I talked to about the experience responded with denial about it and I have the right to speak out. I did not deserve to be treated like this.
Two of the “helpers” were left me completely alone away from the main house and did they let me use the bathroom. This went on for hours and it was very bad, to say the least. The medicine was working through my body and I was screaming because the bad energies from the purge were stuck inside of the room. Again, they did not let me leave or use the bathroom. I would add more details if I could. The “helpers” have to understand that neglecting people during these times is how others get hurt.
Their retreats used to be good and I don’t just know what happened. Part of me wants to say that they’re possessed with demons or bad energies, even if that sounds a bit wacky or extreme.
This was my second retreat with Camino Al Sol here in Colorado. I will not be going back.
