The Eagle Condor Alliance offers 10 Day Sacred Medicine Retreats in the mountains outside of Medellin, Colombia. Participants stay in BnB quality housing while experiencing traditional Cofan Ayahuasca (Yage) ceremonies in conjunction with Red Road (El Camino Rojo) San Pedro Cactus and Lakota-Sioux sweat lodge ceremonies.
By bringing these traditions and medicines together we do our part to fulfill the ancient Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor. Our central mission is to spread consciousness, awareness and love by being the bridge between our participants and the ancient traditions and sacred medicines of the Americas.
We are ultimately concerned with conserving the forests of the Americas, starting in Colombia, where these medicines, traditions, and wisdoms are found.
Part of the profits of every retreat are dedicated to land conservation and social uplift for our elders in Colombia, THE ELEMENTS OF OUR WORKHealing With All of the Sacred MedicinesW e offer all of the sacred plants of the Americas in one powerful and rejuvenating 10 day retreat.\
Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and Temazcal (sweat lodge) ceremonies each have their own unique spirit, tradition, and way of showing us to ourselves. We believe that using these plants together in guided contexts creates the most profound and curative spiritual experience.
