    What is your decision?

    What a time to be alive, right? The COVID-19 pandemic has kicked off an individual process for many people and, above all, a collective process for humanity. Previously, I wrote about the life plans that we usually pre-design and the control that, at certain times, we long to have (or think we have). It seems to me that one of the many lessons that this situation brings us is to let go of all plans, control and expectations. Personally, I had big plans for these months that I will not be able to execute at the moment. So what do I have left? Let go and trust that it had…

    Human Connections as Medicine

    As I write these lines I find myself on a flight back home. I visited Germany to celebrate the end of the year holidays. On a previous visit to Peru I began to understand and feel something that subsequently gained strength when I was at home. I came to understand the power of human connections; people are one of the most potent ‘medicines’. My time in Germany only confirmed this notion. Along my path of integral healing I have had the joy of knowing different healing techniques and tools: master plants, Tai Chi, meditation, reiki and sweat lodges. I could continue to swell the list but we are not here to talk…
