Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
I was a volunteer at Gaia for just under 2 months and could have stayed forever. I was able to participate in several ceremonies during my time at Gaia that were life changing; 3 aya, 1 San Pedro, 1 sweat lodge, and 1 fire keeper position for the sweat lodge. I was also lucky enough to get to know 3 retreats worth of guests and watch their amazing transformations take place, as well as my own. I cannot say enough great things about Christine and her center. The food was top notch, the beds and sheets were so comfy (much appreciated after 3 months of backpacking), the grounds are breath taking and all of my coworkers were so helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Gaia to anyone who is seeking medicine and hope to return with some family members of my own in the future! Thank you Christine, Salvador, Paulina, Santiago, Sofia, and so many others for providing me with such a transformative family style experience.
