      Amazing Experience

    I had the opportunity to go to Killawasi, such a beautiful place! Very peaceful. If you are looking for deep and meaningful answers, this is the place to go. I took San Pedro medicine with Amalia and Diana, and I'm very thankful for it, it is an undescribable experience, very comforting. I recommend 100% Killawasi!

      Inner transformation (italian and english)

    ????????Strength, healing and inner peace, would be the three words I'd use to describe the gift I've received from the medicine ceremonies. I'm grateful for the beauty with wich the people working at killwasi share these sacred plants, I felt safe, supported and guided throughout all my personal transformation, and I can definitely say it has changed my life for the better. Thank you, and may this wonderful energy multiply! ????????Forza, guarigione e pace interiore, sono le tre parole che userei per descrivere il regalo che ho ricevuto dalle ceremonie di medicina. Ringrazio la belleza con la quale le persone di killawasi condividono queste piante sacre, mi sono sentita al sicuro, sostenuta e guidata in tutta la mia trasformazione personale, e posso dire con sicurezza che h trasformato la mia vita al meglio. Grazie, e che questa bella energia possa moltiplicarsi!
