From the moment you arrive you are greeted with wide open arms and genuine love and support. I researched many different resorts in South America and I am so glad Gaia Sagrada was my choice. The...

In regard to the retreat, it was life-changing. I felt so supported by the shamans, Christine, all the retreat participants and the work exchangers. You will...

Didn't even know that such a beautiful sanctuary existed! On the high mountains of Ecuador (~8000 ft), I had one of the most profound experiences of my life! The retreat place was on a 55-acre something piece of land with plenty of quiet space if needed. The best thing was that there were no mosquitos and the temperature was comfortable....

When you make up your mind to make changes in your life, come to Gaia Sagrada. I came dazed and confused, not knowing what to do with the rest of my life. Once there, I entered beautiful grounds, met beautiful people, participated in beautiful ceremonies, and experienced beautiful medicine. My experience started my life change and it has continued even...

Everything about the retreat was amazing. The ceremonies, the people, the shaman, the food and everything else. If you are ever in Ecuador take some time to visit Gaia Sagrada. You will not be disappointed.

Everything was amazing, from the comfi room, clean bath rooms, top of the world view in the mountains, best Aya friendly food, good energy and high quality of stuff members.

There’s not much I can add to the positive reviews that hasn’t already been written so I’ll keep this very simple: If you’re thinking of doing this kind of medicine/retreat, this is the best place to do it.
