Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
Truly a remarkable and life changing experience! All the people here are incredibly welcoming and warm people, truly make you feel at home! Set in the beautiful mountains of Ecuador with great views of the entire valley! Watch out though, you’ll get winded fairly easily if you’re not used to high elevation! They’re very accommodating to those with vegan diets and most of the food they make are vegan friendly! You also have an open kitchen which i took full advantage of! So much terrific fruit there, some of which are grown by one of the employees mothers! best papaya I’ve ever had! The shamans there were some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Funny and very knowledgable about life and their medicines. Both ayahuasca and san pedro compliment each other so well! i don’t see how you could do one and not the other. The sweat lodge was a truly profound experience, stripping you down to your bare minimum and reconnecting you with the earth like you’ve never felt before. I went into this retreat feeling depressed, lonely and unfulfilled but left it feeling so much love and gratitude for everything around me. Coming down here was a shot in the dark as i didn’t know what to expect from these medicines but now that I’m back i couldn’t imagine not having this experience. I now have a new perspective on life and its wonderful! Thanks Gaia Sagrada! I hope to come back again!
