It is difficult to put in words how grateful I am for my experience at Gaia Segrada. My daughter and I had discussed how we were both interested in attending an Ayahuasca retreat last summer and, in the fall, she told me that she had researched options and planned on attending Gaia in December.
After her retreat, she described her experience to me (in the most glowing terms imaginable) and I started booking my own retreat right away. She had told me how amazing the shamans and the staff were, but even with all her praises, I wasn’t expecting to meet such an incredible group of people. I have never had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful souls–Christine, the staff (including, Carly, Ross, and Carole xoxo), the volunteers, the shamans (omg the shamans!!!), and even the dogs:) I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention my fellow attendees–a group of amazing people from all over the world that I had the privilege of sharing this experience with and who have now become life-long friends.
The environment at Gaia is one of total support. I was nervous about experiencing Ayahuasca and San Pedro for the first time and had a couple of experiences with the medicine that were very difficult, but I ALWAYS felt safe, I ALWAYS knew that I would be cared for, and I ALWAYS felt nothing but love from everybody there.
Everybody’s journey with the medicine is different, but almost everybody encounters challenges along the way. That is why I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Gaia. This is the place you want to be when you inevitably encounter your own challenges with the medicine. This is the place where everybody will help you to work through those challenges. This is the place where those challenges can turn into insights, lessons, tools, and victories going forward.
If life is a journey, Gaia is a lighted path.
PS. If you can, sign up for the 12-day retreat. I had originally signed up for the 7-day and am SOOOOO happy I switched to the 12-day. I would definitely have missed some important opportunities without those additional days. Besides, you will not want to leave after 7 days. Trust me on that:)
