2020 AND THE PANDEMIC MADE US QUESTION EVERYTHING

It shook us out of our comfort zone. Some of us experience it as a crisis, others as an opportunity. What is undeniable is that the world stopped being what it was, and that we have the possibility of building a new normal, individually and collectively.

On this trip, we will make a pilgrimage from Antigua to the majestic Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes in search of light and answers, with the intention of re-designing our post-pandemic life according to what feels most important.

We go in search of the essential, in community.
