From the moment I arrived at Riberalta airport to be greeted with warm hugs and the smiling faces of Erik and Sasha I knew I had made the right decision to join Pisatahua’s volunteer program.
I had planned to spend the year volunteering at the centre, as a therapist with the retreat program, however, after just one retreat, Bolivia entered COVID quarantine, leaving a group of healers and volunteers quarantining onsite together at Pisatahua.
What could have been a difficult and potentially distressing situation turned into a period of healing, learning and personal growth thanks to Erik, Sasha, Wara and the rest of the Pisatahua community.
Challenging times like these can really shine a light on our strengths and limitations and I witnessed and experienced the extraordinary way that Erik and the rest of the Pisatahua team shone in the face of this challenge – showing positivity, flexibility, deep care, support and generosity throughout.
Erik went out of his way on a daily basis to ensure that we were feeling supported and safe going above and beyond to offer any assistance needed with unwavering positivity, professionalism and good humour.
While at Pisatahua I have had the chance to participate in a retreat program and received additional healing support from the onsite healers throughout my stay. In this work I was blown away by the skill and care offered by the healers and with their support was able to work through deep personal blocks, develop insights and clarity into long standing life patterns and receive deep healing which left me feeling a sense of clarity, joy and vitality.
I’m beyond grateful for my time and experiences at Pisatahua. If you’re looking for somewhere in the region to either volunteer or participate in a retreat I whole heartedly recommend that you consider the beautiful, transformative healing programs offered at Pisatahua.
