Program

The training lasts for 23 days in total. The first day of the course is dedicated to arriving at Barranquilla, Colombia followed by the opening ceremony with dinner in the evening.

You will be waking up early every morning to feel the serenity of the nature surrounding you. This will ease your mind for early morning meditation and help you get grounded before the busy day ahead.
