    Magic Titicaca with Angel

    PROS Pros: This was a magical retreat! Angel was a great tour guide and brought our group to some of the most mystical stops in Lake Titicaca! I highly recommend this retreat if you are looking to connect deeply with the land and take a journey into your self. The vegan food was a special plus!

    RETREAT FELL APART, FAKE HEALER, STAY FAR AWAY

    CONS Cons: Angel is disorganized, lacking in leadership, and puts her own desires before needs of the group. Everything happened hours after they were supposed to, we spent more time in transit or waiting around than meditating/yoga or seeing sights. We almost missed border crossing to Bolivia because people were buying crystals and Angel did nothing to hurry the group—in fact she wanted to meditate longer at the portal. At border crossing, all the other groups had been given papers to fill out beforehand, Angel gave us nothing. Americans had to go back the next morning to pay the $160USD visa, and Angel got upset that they were missing morning meditation to take care of their visa. It should have been made clear that there'd be an additional $160USD since it's only for 3 days in Bolivia and significantly increases the cost of the retreat. But she just said "oh maybe you'll have to pay a visa fee." She does not know how to prioritize, she does not care about the well-being of the group. She is obsessed with money and herself, not helping people. An 18-year-old girl was hospitalized the day before the retreat but when she showed up Angel did not even ask how she was doing. I've talked with people in Pisac as well, the town she lives in, and they've had bad business experiences with her, find her manipulative and fake, literally their words, which I can vouch for. Stay far away from this retreat and this person. By the end of the retreat, we were staying on Isla Del Sol in a hostel with no water at all, and she asked us to vote on what to do—this is what I mean by she doesn't want to take responsibility for anything. She's always blaming others...we are running late because someone was slow or had altitude sickness...it's the hotels fault...vote and make a group decision so it's not my fault what happens...Of course the group fell apart once we tried to vote. People who wanted to leave still left, and only 5 people stayed. I heard it fell apart even more for those people, as she wanted to stay on the other Island to meditate longer so they missed the last boat back to shore. This what I mean by she puts herself before others. Very selfish. Worst experience ever.

    PROS Pros: Some of the other people at the retreat were nice and we became friends, especially since what we had to endure bonded us.

    Organizer response: By your comments, I can see how powerful this retreat was for you. I also can see that your reactions are a reflection of what came up for you so that you could begin healing it. I applaud your bravery and thank you for showing up to do this deep healing work. I did my best to create a safe space for you and the other participants to do your work, and I listened to you and supported you in the best ways I could—and in the ways that you would allow. I can see that you are still in your healing process. I want you to know that I am still here for you for either distance or in-person support. I see your bright soul and your Light, and I thank you for sharing it with our group. We all grew from our experiences together. I wish you peace and many blessings on your journey, Angel

    "Hi,"

    ""

    "My name is Anton and I participated with Angel’s first trip with her as guide in Peru, Pisac and surroundings. I have also participated here and there since then, and I consider Angel as my friend."

    ""

    "My overall impression is a unique journey with moments of imbalance."

    ""

    "I really enjoyed the yoga practice and Angel’s dedication to this every day. Every day starts with a yoga session before breakfast, and I really needed this as a person coming from a “sit still and work/look at tv –western culture”. We had opportunities to eat healthy and vegan all the time. As far as I know Angel goes by the sattvic vegan diet, which suits me. We could personally eat what we preferred outside of this diet, but sattvic is the preferable choice at this journey. She also talks and teaches about how to make vegan food, which is included in the journey."

    ""

    "Angel have experience in finding different locations around the sacred valley, such as sites containing ruins, ancient stone circles, mountain salt mines and a condor welfare center. She also guides the groups to Machu Picchu and from there to Wayna Picchu which is amazing to visit."

    ""

    "She has knowledge in plant medicine, but only in one specific plant, and she does not want to hear or talk about any other plant. She has a strong way in holding her space, so she can comment about things that doesn’t exist in her subjective view of the world, pretty direct and firm. The positive aspect of this is that she has deep knowledge in accurate that plant. She is very skilled in singing and playing with instruments. "

    ""

    "As previously commented, Angel doesn’t have perfect balance in her business acquaintances. She is mentally blocking negative feedbacks from people in her surroundings often blaming others rather than looking at her part of the issue. This results in discussion about prices and overall planning. As I have understood life, when we face a disturbing conversation, or even situation, we just have to look into ourselves with the thought about what I did to contribute/create this imbalanced conversation or situation. I don’t feel that Angel has fully succumbed to this. But then again, she is dedicated spiritually so who knows. With her spiritual side, there also comes a side of manipulation, which also acts as a teacher to express yourself truly and from the bottom of your soul."

    """ This retreat drives energy and self awakening in any person. The schedule include much of meditation, visit to beautiful and mesmerizing & unbelievable places that makes your heart get engaged in a self change process. Angel did her best from organizing the retreat to hive attention to little details and guided the group with a lovely spirit. At first I need more yoga though with the hiking, walking and many actives I enjoyed and worked out in nature."

    ""Bless you Angel, as you have us a real experience in the Sacred Valley."""

    "Angel is one of the most dedicated spiritual teachers I have ever encountered. Her commitment to healing humanity and this planet is her full-time occupation and most definitely her calling and life's mission. She is clearly guided, intuitive, and transcendent and her connection to both land and spirit is absolutely palpable in her presence. I am grateful to have a connection with her and to receive constant blessings from this earth angel; I feel and see the manifestation of them regularly. "

    "I sincerely recommend her work if you are in need of spiritual assistance in any regard, whether it be land-healing, space-clearing, cord-cutting, ceremonies, or personal spiritual guidance and blessings. I thank Angel for the work she does and you will too! "

    "Life Changing Retreat"

    ""

    "This retreat was an amazing experience. I was looking to find myself and learn to feel love from within instead of searching for love from others. The mediation and yoga really helped me look within. I not only found the beauty in myself but how to see the beauty in others. The vegan diet was hard at first but really changed the way I felt. In the end all the teachings the diet and lessons came together and helped me truly free happy. Very life changing. Angel is very caring and I truly feel like her goal is to help people. I will never forget my experience and what I have learned."

    "" Now, what a wonderful, wonderful, experience. Going to tis retreat in Peru I didn't really know what to expect, but the experience went above my highest hopes. "

    ""

    "I left with my heart full of joy, peace and love- as cheesy as it sounds it is also very true. I saw some stunning nature, had delicious food, met some amazing people and learned so many things about myself and connections to others, nature and spirits. Looking back its amazing how all that could happen in only two weeks time! Thanks to the universe for bringing me here and surrounding me with beautiful people and environment and thanks to Angel for bringing this life changing experience to people. One love <3 " "

    "I couldn't have picked a better retreat to be on. It was great to be with a nice group of like-minded people. "

    "Starting the day with meditation and yoga was great then followed by such a good breakfast. Not only the Breakfast but the lunches and dinners were always so delicious and 100% vegan. Then ending the day with meditation and singing. It was nice to see so much beautiful land in Peru and have everything Planed and pre-arranged. "

    "I'm the type of person that would rather go to different countries rather than go back. But I definitely see myself going back to Peru. It's just such a beautiful peaceful country full of love."

    "Thank you, Angel, for sure a great experience and getting me even more in touch with the earth and my spiritual side."

    "My husband and I recently returned from the 12-day vegan, yoga, meditation retreat led by Angel in Peru. There were so many wonderful things about the trip, I don't know where to start. The vegan meals and cooking classes were great. Raphaella is the chef who prepares most of the vegan meals for the retreat, and she is very happy to share the recipes for her delicious creations. The tour includes all of the major Inca ruins in that area. Machu Picchu is, of course, the most well-known and it was spectacular, but the Pisac ruins and the Ollantaytambo ruins are also amazing. The Pisac ruins are so close to the B & B that you can almost walk to them. The people we met in Peru, both those taking the tour and those living there, were wonderful. Luckily our whole group was shoppers, as the shopping at the markets in that area is not to be missed. Lots of silver jewelry, crystals, hand-woven alpaca goods, artwork, etc. I loved the daily yoga and meditation. We sometimes forget in our busy modern world to do the internal work on ourselves that needs to be done; the retreat in Peru gives you the time and the space to do that."

    "Angel is an amazing host and human being who puts a lot of effort and love into these retreats, with her amazing son by her side she made this retreat a truly unique experience and they have both given me so much joy and love on this journey. She made us all feel very at home and safe in Pisac and she was always there to assist us whether it was personal challenges or practical tasks to take care of. "

    "What has this trip been for me?:) "

    "I have had some of the most wonderful time of my life in Peru. The experiences I have made on this journey to Peru has just been life changing for me. With the plant ceremonies and all the beautiful places, Angel has guided us to it have left an imprint in my soul along with all the amazing human beings I have had the pleasure of sharing these experiences with. A imprint of beautiful and heartfelt memories. Personally, I have learned a lot about myself and notice a great change within, the daily meditations and yoga have left me with new routines to bring into my daily habits. All in all, I would highly recommend taking this opportunity to explore the beautiful place that is Peru, but most of all"

    "take this opportunity to explore within and connect with the unique and warm human beings that one can find on such a journey. "

    "The food at the hostel is just the most delicious and nutritious food I have eaten! I felt so energized every day :) "

    "This trip has been one of the best in my life. It was truly amazing. If you are curious about it, just go! You will not regret it. I was in Peru in February and March and at that time of the year, the nature was really lush and green. We visited so many beautiful sites. Machu Picchu was, of course, a highlight. But the other places and things we did were also exciting. The trip has done much for me, especially when it comes to doing meditation and yoga on a deeper level. The food was great, the Peruvians are very welcoming and sweet, and all in all, it was a great trip."

  • Review by Bjornar from Norway

    "She uses the name Angel and that is what she is. I have attended one retreat in Peru with her and she really knows what she is doing. The theme for the retreat was yoga, meditation, and vegan food. We also went to the tourist sites in the area and studied the Inca ruins, the salt mines, and a natural warm water bathing place. I would recommend these retreats to anyone. Linn is an honest human being caring for mother earth, preservation of nature, and the greater good for all."
