    Hello, we are a family of 6, our place is located in the outskirts(about 30 minutes by walking) from Circasia, a pleasant pueblo in Quindio, Colombia. At our therapeutic center, Intiwasi, we help people improve their lives with the help of Ayahuasca and other sacred plants. Right now we are working on building our Maloca, a traditional indigenous house used for ceremonies, cultural activities, art, prayer, and meditation.
    We will also soon be building a Temazcal, a traditional Mexican steam bath, similar to the Native American sweat lodge. Besides promoting physical well-being and healing, the temazcal is also a ritual in which traditional healing methods are used to encourage reflection and introspection. While the body rids itself of toxins through sweating, the spirit is renewed through ritual. The temazcal is thought to represent the womb and people coming out of the bath are, in a symbolic sense, re-born.
    We are very friendly and like to make friends. We love to help people and our mission is to organize this space to host spiritual retreats and learn from people around the world.

    Travelers would benefit coming to our place because Quindio is a beautiful state surrounded by mountains, coffee plantations, and stunning nature. We are very close to Filandia, Armenia, and Salento where you can hike the Cocora Valley, Parque de los Nevados, and meet people from all over the world. In Circasia you could visit many different coffee bars and enjoy the small town atmosphere. The bus stop is just 10 minutes walking from our place.
    We have 3 lovely children and we are frequently visited by friends so you will have the opportunity to meet many kind locals and practice your Spanish.
    Our friends play medicinal music for the ceremonies and love to share and learn from others. We are like a family. We love to hear about other's lives and believe that everybody has something to teach us. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a sacred ceremony of ayahuasca and learn about other sacred plants.
    (The cost of the ayahuasca ceremonies and other medicinal plants is not included)
