Open yourself up to an exceptional experience of transformation & rebirth with this Ceremony Invite: Aguacolla (San Pedro) Medicin and Power Walk. Come and join us in the journey of personal growth, connection with the natural word, and healing of the heart.

Regarding *this specific ceremony* here is a simple outline:

Sigsig’s natural beauty and rich ancestral heritage is a perfect setting for a meditative experience inviting connection. Following the walk, we return to the sacred fire to rest and prepare for the temazcal experience. Following the temazcal medicine, we close our sacred space and enjoy fruits and tea around the fire.

After such an unpredictable and tempestuous time, it’s not surprising that so many of us feel like we are standing at a crossroads.

Our lives are very different than they were a few years ago.

Add to that personal life events such as work changes, relationships and “unexpected external forces”, and it’s easy to feel lost. So many life questions: What next? What am I for? What do I do now?…continue reading

If you have an interest in spending an afternoon in Paute and want to come along, please let us know by replying to this email sending us an email at the email address in this post.

We will be departing from Hotel Oro Verde in Cuenca on Saturday February 3rd at 1:00pm and returning to Cuenca around 9:00pm (returning to Hotel Oro Verde). The cost will be $15 per person (round trip). This is for the bus trip only.

The show starts at 4pm and goes till later on.

It’s going to be a great time!

Whether you have recently moved or have been living here for some time, you should be aware that Ecuador is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire and is more prone to seismic events due to its location in a tectonically active zone. This leads to a series of challenges for homes and buildings in general, especially in the coastal regions, where the threat of earthquakes and tsunamis is a constant concern. But do not forget that the Ecuadorian Sierra is also prone to high-intensity seismic events that put your home and life at risk. Home insurance has never been more necessary than it is now. Not only do seismic events pose a risk to your home in Ecuador, but global warming has also led to unexpected climate changes. In 2022, the Sayausí parish was affected by heavy rains, leaving nearly 250 people and 36 homes affected, in addition to ongoing road collapses that have not been fully repaired. The area also features a geological fault that traverses the city of Cuenca and its surroundings, creating a double risk. Don’t let the rains catch you off guard; get insurance with BBA now.
