Later he chose to be based in Bolivia, his homeland, where his strongest connections are, and where spirit guided him to be, to share the powerful healing and transformative energies that lie therein.

About twelve years ago Miguel had a very profound and liberating experience with the Vision of the Condor and the Eagle Prophecy and the manifestation of the Divine Presence, which since then has accompanied his work and become his main source of inspiration to share with all who come.

Miguel founded the Sacha Runa Healing Community about 25 years ago, and has trained many generation of shamans, both Bolivian and from many other countries, and continues to guide and uphold the community, while pleased to share with some magnificent souls that have joined are do great healing work together, as well as with the many visitors, national and international who come for healing, guidance and inspiration.

There is something very special happening in Bolivia, kept under the radar until now and ready to be shared with the world by the Sacha-Runa Shamanic Healing Community Warriors of the New Time. Shamanic Healing and Training Retreat (21 days) BOLIVIAN ANDES & AMAZON September and December 1-22. Sacha Runa team working for more than 30 years serving with Respect, Love, Devotion, Surrender to help people connect to the Light and their inner truth, manifest their potential and fulfill their destiny. Connect to Source, Receive Vision and Wisdom, and Bless All of Creation. Also, 7 and 15 day retreats every month, and individual ceremonies on Wednesdays and Saturdays at both Andean and Amazonian Locations.

In 2006, Miguel Kavlin, the founder of the Sacha Runa Healing Community had a revelation of the Condor and Eagle Prophecy manifest to him at the ceremonial Healing Chamber in the Bolivian Andes. This is how he describes it: “I had always wondered if all these talk about the Condor and the Eagle Prophecies was only marketing and someone's invention, but in that ceremony I decided to find out for myself. I decided to hold a Condor feather in one hand and an Eagle feather on the other, and seek to integrate them in my consciousness. My consciousness in fact took a leap of some kind, I entered another state, and remember saying out loud: "Now the Condor and the Eagle have comer together". Moments later, a most amazing thing happened, a Sublime Presence manifested in the room, not with a form but with a magnificent, noble, benevolent and powerful tangible presence. At that point I could do no more than prostrate myself flat on the floor, for I felt I was in the presence of the Divine, and that presence was a great blessing onto all who were there. I had never experienced the Andes Mountains, the stars, the earth and all energies aligned in such a state of grace and blessing before. The message it conveyed is that the Messiah is here (Pachakuti the natives call it), that the New Earth and the New Heaven are here and now. The Messiah is this Divine Presence that is accessible to all who wish to connect, serve and bring compassion, bliss and peace to their lives. Slowly but surely, that presence began to manifest more and more often in all the various ceremonies that we perform, including the sweat-lodge, Sun-Moon Dance and others and also in my daily meditations and everyday life. This presence has also touched many of my companions on the path who participate with me in ceremonies. It is this Divine Presence which later brought me to meet Babaji Baldev Singh, who embodies and exemplifies the state I had experienced in the Kiva, and a is a clear channel for, and a passageway to that state of Grace. I have devoted much time since to undergo my personal transformation, seeking to embody one day that state of grace. I believe it is both our destiny and our birthright, our possibility and our obligation to do so, and that we keep on reincarnating over and over again until we achieve this. In this troubled times, it behooves all spiritual worriers to endeavor to achieve this in our lifetime!!!!!”” Those who feel this call and are willing to do what it takes, are welcome to come to BOLIVIA, the best kept secret of south America, where something very special and sacred has been developing and coming to fruition under the radar for the last 30 years under the tuition of the Sacha Runa Healing Community working for more than 30 years integrating many spiritual traditions of south and north, as well as east and west, to bring humanity together as ONE, serving with Respect, Love, Devotion, Surrender to help people safely but powerfully connect to the Divine Light and their inner truth, manifest their potential and fulfill their destiny as beacons of Light working for the benefit of all sentient beings.

      Allkamari December 2019

    I recognize Miguel Kavlin as a great soul, by the vision he conceived, and by the fruits of his labour. He understood very early, the key principle of the Universe – the sound. He also understood the sacred geometry, and found such auspicious place as Allkamari is, near La Paz. The first building he established there, was the Peace Sound Chamber, which binds by sacred geometry to all the other sound chambers around the planet. This chamber – Kiva - serves humanity for about 35 years with powerful and wonder-filled ceremonies. Two decades later, Miguel established a sister structure for Kiva, Tibetan stupa, another sound and prayer magnifier. How thoughtful was to add a circular building for yoga, meditation and celebration, a sharp pointy “Cosmic Accupuncture” statue on the view point, surrounded by a cactus garden, and to host the Sun and Moon Dance on the sacred grounds around the Tree of Life. The whole center is tastefully aligned with Pachamama’s elements, and even when staying indoors, the eco cottages make one feel connected to surrounded nature. This creation of Miguel, and his people, is simply delightful and reveals deep heart connection with the Spirit. Another thread, confirming Miguel’s affinity to sincere cultivation of spiritual values, is his inclination to outstanding teachings and teachers. He has the capacity to recognize a true essence, depth, and purity of teachings. This gift served him well, also in recognition of young shamans, who are now excellently working with people when he is not around. Let Divine Grace continually bless your service to this world, Miguel, and allow many more to benefit from your gifts. With gratitude and respect, Jana Ziman/Guru Bhai Kaur

Wounds that were bleeding for years, I can openly say that my experiences we're always incredible with such a powerful and loving guide I found so much true inside of me, I feel so grateful, the last time I've done the ritual felt like a year of resting so so much healing it was like resting my would mind and body inside mother Earth's heart... Like I came from thousands of war years and suddenly I find perfect peace... Perfect rest for the soul the mind...

      Wachuma Ceremony

    In the Wachuma Ceremony we did in Santa Cruz, Bolivia I felt very safe and taken care of. The music Miguel played was beautiful and it was very important during my experience. When he blew on my head, I felt a beautiful expansion and I felt so could trust him. I had amazing visions and the whole experience was pleasant.

      San Pedro

    My first time with any plant medicines, i must say, its an experience you must try in your quest to get to know yourself more. Shaman Miguel was so loving and caring, the experience couldn't have been more pleasant, comfortable, and safe. its prob to me the most important aspect of it, feeling safe so you can really be in the moment and explore yourself. Miguel is full of knowledge and love. I can not wait for him to come back to Miami again!

      My first ceremony with Ayahuasca

    Miguel is a maestro with decades of experience behind and you can immediately notice that in the ceremonies. Very thankful for the ceremony shared and all the work that has been done. Besides, Hotel Allkamari is a perfect retreat close to La Paz surrounded by an amazing natural landscape with espectacular views, very close to Valle de las Ánimas. Hope to have the opportunity again to be back in La Paz to repeat the experience.

      Exceptional Spiritual Guide

    Sacha Runa is a special community led by Miguel Kavlin. On many occasions my husband and I participated in events at Allkamari, a ceremonial space and beautiful boutique hotel located in a valley near La Paz with a spectacular view of the mountain Illimani and surrounding valleys. All experiences with Miguel have been exceptional, healing and life changing -- marking a before and after. He is highly skilled and brings wisdom from his decades of training with great masters from diverse lineages including Andean shamanism, North American Native American traditions, Tibetan Buddism and Sikhism. You will not be disappointed.

      Aya experience

    I had the pleasure of going through a plant medicine ceremony with Miguel. His demeanour and aura immediately set not only me, but the rest of the participants at ease. He guided us through 5 hours of the ceremony, singing the Icaros for hours without stopping. He consecrated a direct experience with the divine. I had a direct conversation with passed over loved ones. I left the ceremony with healed emotional wounds and having no fears. I am forever grateful to Miguel and the ceremony

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Watching the sun come over the mountain in the morning inspires me! Holly
