About ECC

Our aspiration is to help people discover their authentic selves, to discover their innate wisdom, purpose and healing capacity. ECC supports authentic community, sacred healing traditions and earth-centered spirituality. We do this thru educational programming, retreats and pilgrimage. ECC also supports a wide community of spiritual, earth-honoring and healing practitioners. We endeavor to be a living demonstration of the power of diverse people coming together in the spirit of solidarity, collaboration and healing. Anchored in the cosmology and teachings of Peru and the Andes we build community and support diverse spiritual traditions through workshops, events, retreats and pilgrimage.

The EC Council operates on the principles of self-organization, we are not hierarchical but rather seek to support collaboration that leads to meaningful programming and service.

We are also committed to the highest level of integrity. With regard to the native/indigenous traditions we carry, our covenant is to only teach, practice and share those things we have been given explicit permission and blessing to teach, share and practice.

Social and Environmental Equity Programs

The Eagle Condor Council strives to walk in sacred reciprocity (ayni) and right relations. We recognize what a  great privilege it is to practice and share the traditions and practices sanctioned to us by our teachers. We also acknowledge the ills and suffering caused by colonization and cultural appropriation. Our commitment is to help our teachers and their communities become more resilient so that their traditions and teachings are not lost. Golden Threads, is a living example of this commitment. 

As an organization, we seek to walk in right relationship with Pachamama, the living earth. As such, we recognize that as part of the industrial world we create harmful greenhouse gasses as a consequence of our work and travel. We have partnered with COTAP.org (Carbon Offsets to Alleviate Poverty) to help ensure that we are doing as little damage as possible to the earth’s ecosystems.
