Hola from San Lucas Toliman, it feels both sweet and sour to leave here today. We’re officially wrapping up X Phase, an important time of course when our students take the journey into their own hands. They took the lead by organizing and executing 6 days of activities and learning through the Mesoamerican Institute of Permaculture, along the shores of Lake Atitlan. They did an amazing job and we could not be more proud of their efforts, team work and attention to detail.
Today marks an impactful transition time into the next and final piece of the program, which we call Transference. We’ll hit the road towards a farm called Ruta del Yalu, an hour outside of Guatemala City near Sumpango. There we’ll spend the next 5 days and 4 nights as a group to celebrate, reflect, and build upon the moments, ideas and experiences that have unfolded in these past 3 months. We use this time with great intention in order to prepare our students to say ‘gracias y adios’ to this adventure and ¡hola! to the next chapters in life.
We will spend our last 2 nights in La Antigua Guatemala, continuing this transition, before an early morning transfer to the airport on December 6th.
We’ll continue to check-in and post yaks in the final days, please look back here to see the students ending contributions.
On behalf of the instructor team, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sending us these precious souls, students turned good friends. We’ve had an extraordinary journey together and your support and encouragement as their friends and family has been invaluable for them, and in turn for us. ¡Gracias! y malitox.
