“My experience in Colombia was very transformative.  Being immersed in nature, home of the sacred medicinal plants, and the Kamentsa community created the setting for a profound experience.  I could feel the energy of the land and community supporting my process. 

I was able to go much deeper and the insight that came during the retreat was life changing.  I returned home with a major gift and shift.  I enjoyed the relaxation of the environment, beautiful people, fresh food, and hikes within the mountains, which also complimented my process.  I am very thankful for my experience and look forward to attending a retreat there again.”

"I’ve been on this sacred path for many years and have had the pleasure of working with many of Taita Juan’s protégés consistently for a better part of my journey. I started making the pilgrimage to see Taita a few years ago and have been three times, coming up in my fourth very soon. My goal is to visit at least once a year.

Every time I visit the homeland, Taita and his family welcome me as if I’m one of their own. I have grown exponentially in my healing due to my work with Taita and feel, as a white person, extreme honor that I am allowed to be a part of these ancient ways. I have tremendous respect for this work and visiting Taita always opens me up to new levels of healing not possible with the western way. Not a day goes by where I don’t feel deep gratitude for this path, for Taita and for the availability of these beautiful rituals that bring us back to ourselves in such a deep and meaningful way. I am a much better person because of Taitas passion and dedication to this work, his energy creates a ripple."
