Bill Pfeiffer- Author of Wild Earth, Wild Soul- A Manual for Ecstatic Culture
“I am a shamanic guide, spiritual coach and the author of the book called “Wild Earth, Wild Soul- A Manual for an Ecstatic Culture”, so as you would expect I am very into remembering ancient culture and bringing it into the 21st century in a good way. I have experienced almost 10 days here and it’s been truly life changing. I don’t say that with any exaggeration. The combination of the Yage and the Inipi ceremonies is incredible medicine. I was extremely impressed by how the ceremonies were put together with such integrity and knowledge. This is not spiritual tourism; this is a deep dive into higher consciousness. And the upshot is that you fall in love with the group, you fall in love with life and you are in paradise ( inside and out). So I feel very fortunate and I know this is actually going to make my work better. I am more fully myself, feeling more powerful, more connected, and it’s been a really incredible experience. It’s just the best.”
Hear what people are saying about Ancestral Knowledge Retreat:
Colombia, a Natural Paradise….
Colombia is considered one of the most biodiverse countries in the world, boasting over 300 different ecosystems. It houses over 4,000 species of Orchids, 1,800 species of Birds, coastlines on the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean and Jungles that take up over 50% of the country’s total area. With such biodiversity, it is no surprise that Colombia is home to the most endemic species in the world. This means that these species live only in Colombia and nowhere else in the world.
The Colombian people are known for their optimistic outlook on life; they naturally seek out any opportunity they can to gather in family and celebrate. In 2013 and 2014, Colombia was ranked the happiest country in the world.
