Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
Gaia Sagrada changed my life before it even really got going. I was told that I was suppose to be deeply insecure and partly miserable just because I was young and angsty, and being able to let go of pain and see, and be able to appreciate all my privilege before I hurt the people around me more was a gift. I feel rebooted, refreshed, and thankful for the experiences the people around me where strong enough, and kind enough, to share. I hope I was as much of a help to them in some small way as they where to me, and one day I hope when I have a little more life experience to share, I can come back and volunteer. Gaia taught me how to love myself again, when I should have in the first place. In an unfortunate twist of fate I was also in a pretty terrible situation just after I left, and the tools I learned in Gaia helped me forgive, let go, and move on from it in a way I never could have before. It made me a stronger, happier, and more self aware person and I will never never never forget it. Also, The. Food. Is. Bomb.
