Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
This is an outstanding retreat! I could not recommend it enough!! Safe, comfortable, affordable and absolutely gorgeous. I had a truly life-changing experience here, when I arrived my heart was heavy with self-loathing, I was suffering from anxiety and was dealing with physical illness as well. The day I left I was the most beautiful, capable, flexible, strong and charismatic I had ever felt. I wondered why I felt so hurt in the first place! It was like dropping a rock filled backpack. And every day my calm blissfulness gets stronger and deeper. No exaggeration, it doesn’t stop building, it’s been one week and the energy in my heart keeps compounding exponentially. I can’t imagine going back to way I was living beforehand! If you are hurting in anyway, for any reason, this retreat will heal you. Christine and Bruce have built a sanctuary, they are knowledgable and passionate people who are committed to your experience. They have pulled together a team of extraordinary individuals, you’ll be inspired by everyone you meet! The Shamans!! OMG they were incredible people, it was a blessing to meet each of them, hear their songs and receive their advice. Absolutely authentic, each Shaman had their own speciality, their own magic. And the work exchangers, the people who cook your food and do your laundry, they are great people as well! They just want to learn about the medicines and how to facilitate healing. Really the community there is what sets this place apart. One dude played violin while we sat in comfy beds around the campfire under the stars, it was awe-inspiring! I will definitely go back! Choose Gaia Sagrada and you will thank yourself!
