We are committed to inner transformation and the development of consciousness as a path to peace, to truth, to inner ecology, and to a reconciliation within ourselves that can be transformed into a collective and social transformation.
ONCA is a non-profit incorporated in Colombia and designed for international outreach. We have four sites in different places around the mayor communities which we have relationships with: in Wirikuta, the peyote desert around the Wixarica community; in Sucumbios, the Amazonian region of Ecuador, around the A’i Cofan community; in Micodi, Gabon, around a pygmea bwiti community; and in Chocó, Colombia, around the Emberá Katío community. Within these sites, ONCA carries out pilgrimages and social projects; connecting with these communities and their mystical traditions and wisdom.
