Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
I LOVE Gaia Sagrada. I just did a retreat here and they are wonderful! The shamans are magical and really helped me, and the medicine is strong! Here is a description of their shamans http://gaiasagrada.com/shamans-at-gaia-sagrada-photos-bios/. I am a changed person for sure, and now i have a new family, as all of us in the ceremonies became best of friends as we did this journey together.
I was so happy with how modern the housing is too. They have a sauna, hot tubs, hot showers, no bugs, no sleeping in a hut, its great! I even got to look at galaxies through their telescope! What i don’t understand is why those places where you sleep in a hut in a shared room and bathe in a creek are more expensive than this place that offers such modern and comfortable facilities?
This price is so cheap and i even could afford my own private room! They have cheaper prices for dorm and shared rooms, and even the private room here at Gaia Sagrada was cheaper than the cot in a hut thing with a mosquito net and bathing in the creek in Peru!
The other reason i chose to go with Gaia Sagrada in Ecuador is because Ecuador has regulations about shamanism and not just anyone can practice shamanism in Ecuador, like the free for all thats going on in Peru. I’m really happy i made my choice to do an ayahuasca retreat at Gaia Sagrada in Ecuador because I felt really safe, Gaia Sagrada i picked incredible shamans after sorting through a lot of them, the shamans even sign a contract that their medicine is pure and nothing unknown is added (one of my biggest worries with the Ayahusca in Peru) that could result in death.
I would recommend Gaia Sagrada Eco-Lodge to anyone for Ayahuasca retreats if you are looking to do it in Ecuador where the shamans are more for sure to be qualified since there are more regulations in Ecuador than in Peru.
Gaia Sagrada rocks!
