Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
My two weeks at Gaia Sacrada were arguably two of the most challenging, inspiring and profound weeks of my life. The Shamans at the center (Salvador, Paulina, Sofia, Santiago and Cynthia) are absolutely incredible. They are experienced, kind, caring, talented, and enthusiastic to share their tradition with others. It’s clear that they have the best intentions for healing in mind at all times. I felt so safe, supported and encouraged by them. Christine, the owner of the center, is also an incredible woman. She has dedicated her life to the healing and consciousness training of others, and is so good at it! As a female staying at Gaia alone, I felt extremely safe and that I was treated with respect at all times. The center itself is beautiful, tucked away in the forest about a 45 minute drive from Cuenca. The facilities are modern, comfortable and clean. The food (almost entirely vegan) is awesome! I cannot recommend Gaia Sagrada highly enough!!
