The Teyuna & Earth Wisdom at the Inn at Shaker Inn Falls

The Teyuna, living in the vast Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains along the northern coast of Colombia for thousands of years, have been called "The Dalai Lamas of South America" due to their wisdom, their pacifism and their unequaled respect for tradition.

Their traditional lands range from the snowfields atop the mountain down to the coral reefs of the Caribbean, meaning that they are one of the few indigenous cultures in the Americas managing highland, lowland and marine ecosystems. It was the Teyuna, who, in calling attention to melting glaciers over twenty years ago, served as some of the first harbingers of climate change.

They are here out of genuine concern to help us open up to a new awareness of our relationship to the earth at this critical time in our planet’s evolution. We are honored to host this series of public events and private gatherings at the Inn. We can develop a new level of earth wisdom and strengthen our own inner organs of perception by spending time in the presence of the Teyuna, a rare and precious opportunity.

Please contact us if you are interested in finding out more information or participating in this unique opportunity.

"Charming inn - beautifully located, quirky and very comfortable. Michael is a charming host - very welcoming and eager to accommodate all requests. I took a small dog and she was welcomed. I'll certainly be returning." - Nick

"The Inn is beautiful and rustic, and its natural surroundings rejuvenate and refresh you. We loved the comfortable beds, quiet room, and great breakfast. It added a special touch to sit in the dining area with a view through a wall of windows to the scenic area by the rippling stream running alongside the building. The grounds are inviting for nature walks. We only stayed one night, but we'd definitely enjoy a longer stay as a destination stop where we could spend a week or more and enjoy more of the experiences available to guests."
- Kathy

"The Inn is so idyllic and Michael was so welcoming. We had a big group and everyone had perfect accommodation - it was so fun to hang out by the fire in the evening and sit in the lounge overlooking the waterfall during the day. I cannot recommend the Inn enough!" -Becky

"I went here for an organizational retreat in October 2017 and it was a most wonderful memory for me. The house is rustic and beautiful. The grounds and view are stunning. The food was the best food I had eaten at an inn in years. I would just go again for the food if not all the other aspects! The host Michael and his staff made us all feel perfectly at home. LOVED this inn." - Caroline Oct. 2017
