It has come to my attention that there is still a caution among Americans when considering traveling to Colombia, South America. That is understandable as 15 years ago the country was in a bloody civil war with drug lords terrorizing innocent people. THAT IS ALL OVER, THANK THE GODDESS!! Now, Colombia is the friendliest South America country I've visited (just Peru and Ecuador) as the people are eager to prove, especially to American's, whose government helped to end the drug war, that their country and culture has so so much to offer! Traveling alone, I have had a stranger (a young man) make sure I got a safe taxi ride to my lodging in Bogota, and a taxi driver late at night search for a safe hotel for me when the place I thought I was staying was booked because I showed up a night early. I've had a stranger run after me holding a hat I left behind, and a woman on the plane offer me her pen when she saw me rummaging through my bag looking for one (I guess she was psychic too!) And I met a Colombian woman at my hotel who became my friend. We toured the gorgeous ancient city of Cartagena, went out to the islands to swim in the clear blue Caribbean ocean and went salsa dancing. We communicated through the heart as we didn't share much of each others' language. The people are warm, full of spirit, and so welcoming. I have even more amazing stories of how safe I have felt in Colombia during my past two trips there. (Now, it's true a woman alone would not want to walk at night in certain areas of the big cities, but that is true in many cities around the world.)
We hope you will choose to join us for this Sound Healing Retreat where we will reconnect with the juicy, nourishment of Mother Nature and deepen our Song of Self, and FREE our VOICES in service of our evolution and the evolution of humanity by coming into harmony with Gaia-Mother Earth....and the Stars of our origin...
