45 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training

When we are present and awake, emotions have a short lifespan, but when we’re unconscious, they can last for years.

– Pema Chödrön

  • Review for Pulse Tours - Ayahuasca Adventure Center

      Great food, clean lodgings, excellent Shamans

    When you arrive you get a delicious dinner and the food stays consistently yummy, lots of omelets. The ceremonies start in the evening, the stars are striking, and go on for some time. The experiences people have are varied, but there is adequate staff to help. The setting is great with clean, grass-roofed huts. There are are opportunities to go visit wildlife, or you can stay in and be lazy. I thought it was a great value and if you plan to take ayahuasca this would be a safe and legitimate site. Do recommend.

      Profound and wonderful teacher

    Gume is absolutely one of the finest healers I have ever met. He is deeply intuitive and fierce in the sense that he commits everything to his ceremonies. Gume has a very special relationship with the plant medicines and spirit guides, and his icaros are a directive to the medicine as it works inside you. My beloved and I both experienced deep soul healing. Even a year later, what we learned in those ceremonies continues to teach and guide us. Perhaps what I love most about Gume is the way he balanced such serious work with a delightful playfulness and sense of humor. He kept as laughing as much as we cried. After ceremony, Gume grabs a guitar and gently sings songs of praise for the hard work accomplished. I have often listened to the songs I recorded after ceremony and gathered strength from his voice. It is not an exaggeration to say Gume changed our lives significantly for the better. We will be returning to work with him again soon. You will not find a more knowledgeable yet humble shaman. With all my heart, Maestro, gracias.

      ECA April 2016

    My experience with ECA has really exceeded my expectations. When I arrived .. I was greeted with open arms and heart... The 3 young men Jesse, Bobby, & Hans I give great credit for .. to see them work, and putting 100% effort with Love and Compassion is really something to be admired. I felt completely safe and just knew I was in the right hands. The accommodations and food was excellent, and just the setting alone was perfect. As for the shamans Greison and Gonzo - they truly are experts in their field - and I actually got more than I expected from La Medicina. My experience and intentions that I set for this retreat were completely met yet La Medicina brought up things in my past that needed healing that I didn't even realize. Feeling grateful. humbled , and rejuvenated by the end of the retreat is an under statement.. I do plan on doing this again with ECA because you all become one - a family - a great feeling. I do recommend not watching any youtube video's because when I did I got the complete wrong impressions from the other retreats... at the ECA it was different..and I'm very happy that I made the right decision. ps Inbetween ceremonies while relaxing- I learned real quick to listen to Bobby Hans and Jessie.. for when they talk maybe not realizing it but I gained much knowledge from them as well. I left the retreat having a greater respect for Mother Nature and all of her elements, taking better care of myself with the right foods and my spiritual growth has sky rocketed. Thank You ECA.. I will be back. Aho

    After researching plant medicine retreats across South America, my partner and I came across Eagle Condor Alliance. Everything about it sounded sincere, respectful and incredibly intriguing. And after spending 10 days at the retreat, I can happily say that it offers far more than I had ever expected. The location is unbeatable, as you are fully immersed in all of Mother Nature's green, leafy glory. The accommodation is incredible. I have to say, coming home to a cosy fire, warm herbal tea and a big comfy bed was an absolute godsend after the ceremonies. Taylor and the other chefs cooked the most delicious, nourishing and tasty food you can ever imagine. And what can I say about the facilitators – Bobby, Jesse and Hans. These are three of the most genuine and caring people I have ever met. You can see just how hard they have worked to get this amazing place to where it is now, and I have no doubt that they will continue to do many more wonderful things in the future. They each bring their own unique energy to the centre, and I am eternally grateful for the support that each of them gave me during my stay. The healers are true miracle workers. Gonzalo's energy throughout the San Pedro and Temezcal ceremonies was pure joy. I absolutely loved being immersed in his joyous energy, and I was deeply touched by just how much he loves the sacred land that we call planet earth. The San Pedro ceremonies and Temezcals were the perfect balance to the Aya ceremonies, and I couldn't imagine not doing all three in conjunction with eachother. And as for Greison – wow. A powerful man with a giant heart. This man helped lead me through some of the most profound moments of my life during the Aya ceremonies. I cannot fathom doing the plant medicines anywhere else now, because at ECA every aspect is kept true to the ancient traditions, and you know that you are in safe hands the entire time. I am eternally grateful for what Greison, Gonzalo, Bobby, Jesse and Hans have brought to my life – setting me on the right path to discover inner peace. It may sound cliche, but I really do feel reborn in many ways after my visit to ECA. Each and every person that I shared those 10 days with have become my family, and I am so thankful for having been a part of such a beautiful experience. I cannot wait to return someday. Aho!
