Ecuador

The Grail of Ecuador was welcomed into the International Grail in 2019.  We recognize ourselves as an inclusive group with diverse spiritual and ethnic roots.  We are focused on building a community of connection that is a source of unity and hope. We seek to strengthen a regional network and to grow in the Grail with a formation that respects, and gives visibility to, our Andean ancestral roots. We believe that the knowledge of our indigenous peoples needs to be vindicated.  From International interactions, sustainable community work alliances have been born to help our work in strengthening rural and indigenous community.
