After 13 years of brutal civil war in El Salvador, the 16th of January marks the end of the Salvadorian civil war and the signing of the Chapultepec Peace Accords.
Today, Salvadorians commemorate this day as “National Day of Peace.” This photo from PBS depicts a celebration of a Salvadorian parade hosted by the leftist FMLN, throwing a festival in honor of the ending of the bloody civil war.
On this day in history, the Right Wing Junta & members of the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front cake together in Mexico to negotiate for what would follow in El Salvador’s political realm.
The FMLN would be liquidated and disarmed in order to become a political party, while El Salvador would maintain its democratic system that was introduced in the middle of the war.
The Junta was dismantled, leaving for reworking within the Salvadorian armed forces, which would later be replaced by civilian orientated policing.
But even after the 26 years that have passed since the end of the war, El Salvador still remains as one of the most dangerous countries in the world. It’s as if the war never ended.

Our Color Your World Retreat has been extended for another day
June 23-31, 2018
8 Days, 7 Chakras, 7 Wonders of Your Life
This exclusive retreat will take you on a colorful journey through your 7 Chakras, as you explore and balance your inner self.
We try so hard to take care of our issues, our pains, our goals, our body displeasure, and our emotional upheavals by “doing” things that we think will help. But in the end, it’s all about “being” — obtaining the balance within.
Reiki Healer and Yoga Teacher Kelly Behrend and myself (Diana Stobo) will guide you through a journey of self-love and acceptance to awaken the power that’s already within you. Cultures around the world have described this power within for thousands of years in many ways — enlivening your prana, activating your chi, invoking your spirit, balancing your chakras — and now, it’s your time to rise.
The Color Your World Retreat is a week-long wellness immersion specifically designed around the seven chakras to help you release energetic blockages, heal from past trauma, connect with your Higher Self, and get clear on what you need to transform your life. Each of the seven days will focus on enlivening each chakra through yoga, meditation, workshops, life coaching, holistic nutrition, sound healing, nature connection, and so much more.
Situated on a quartz crystal mountain nestled in the jungle of Costa Rica, the healing begins the moment you set foot at The Retreat, and then what happens after that is pure magic.
Join us for a life-reviving 8 days at The Retreat Costa Rica for a journey through food, fun, and fresh perspective.
