“Spending this week at Ancestral Knowledge Retreat has been such a profound experience for me. Just dealing with the struggles of the world, there’s so much stress that can pile up, and when I came here I felt lost, I felt cold, I felt lonely, and I just really didn’t know how to accomplish the important work that I wanted to get done, I didn’t feel up to the challenge. And the staff here, the family here, has just been such an incredible beacon for me, just leading me to the light. There’s so much love, so much trust and hope, and genuine concern and compassion. It was a great reminder that we are all connected, we are all family and there is love for us all whether we see it or not. Being able to come back to that has been such a gift and I’m so thankful that I was able to be here and work with everyone and meet everyone and just see that the struggles that I’m facing are so normal and its a common thread. Working wit the Yage and the Inipi ceremonies really did replenish me, it rejuvenated me in a way that I never experienced before. Now, I feel that power and that strength that I’ve been praying for and I’m just so ready to share it with the rest of the world.”
