Dear Community, I have organized a trip to Sharamentsa, Ecuador planned for October 2-9 for those that may be interested. My group of Pachamama Journeyers in 2017, now named EPICA (and a 501(c)3), was moved by a request from this Achuar community to build a school to help them to learn English so as to have a better tool to save their way of life, their lands, and to communicate with our world about the importance of the rainforest. We will dedicate the school and celebrate with Achuar elders and all of the community. There are many activities and hikes planned as well as ceremonies. If you have any interest it would be my pleasure to talk with you about the trip! There are a few places left, and limited to 12 participants. You can check it out on EPICA.earth or message me.
Dear Pachamama Alliance family,

Our day together will include spiritual teaching, a community lunch and a healing Inipi ceremony (sweat lodge) in the evening. The ceremony will be followed by a simple soup meal.
