Via a Llayzhatan Bajo, Ecuador
Peace for the heart, body, mind and spirit, I felt uniquely at home at Gaia Sagrada, inside and out. The staff were more supportive during this retreat than anything I previously experienced as an adult. The shamans, Salvador, Amalia, Sofia, and Santiago each offer genuine guidance for relating deeply with the planet and are intelligent, profoundly compassionate, funny, and highly skilled. The food is superb, and fellow adventurers within the Gaia Sagrada environment were all readily supportive. The Andes provides a strong backbone for exploration, for knowing a land lush with rivers and peaks. Frogs at Gaia Sagrada pulse acoustically like contact between two sticks — it sounds like the trees are talking. Christine sings beautifully, and her good counsel and omnipresent love is the cornerstone for retreatants’ intentions to live authentically and from the heart — values which persist after departing the land.
