Saludxs y Una Receta!

¡Hola a [email protected]!

Greetings from my Colorado pueblo where my community is excitedly preparing for our solstice celebration this friday. We plan to welcome in the light with a fire ceremony honoring the Apus that bless us here in the renowned Rockies. Mountains, whether they are snow-capped or rocky ridges, continue to be my main inspiration in life. Through my travels and many places I have lived I have always found home in the mountains. The opportunity to explore Los Andes with you all is something I am deeply grateful for.

Life has provided me opportunities to fall in love with learning over and over again. It’s a love that has lasted me a lifetime and influenced my current gypsy ways enormously. My University studies in environmental science and experiential education led me to work on permaculture farms in Costa Rica, children homes in India and Nepal and more recently I served as community conservation volunteer with the Peace Corps in Panama. And now I find home and wholeness in Bolivia and Peru.

However you have landed here  I would like to welcome you all in gratitude for seeking an experience full of adventure with deep roots in humility. You might be asking yourself- how do I prepare for this?

Here are some of my thoughts 🙂

Receta To Prepare:

Ingredientes: 2 cups curiosity, a whisk of willingness, kneaded nervousness, notes from loved ones as necesario, extract of enthusiasm, honey drizzled hope, a dash of deep breaths, heaps of heart and a backpack.

Instrucciones: Add all items into the backpack and stir with a splash of overthinking. Do so even if you are missing an ingredient… the journey ahead will taste just as sweet, I promise! This recipe is Andes and Amazon bound!

Frank, Vincent and I (your faithful instructorxs for this upcoming journey) are very excited to meet you soon! As we begin to prepare for our adventure please don’t hesitate to contact me at [email protected] with preguntas. Blessings on your preparations and celebrations ahead!

Un Abrazo,

Elly
