Gaia is a very old name for Mother Earth, or Mother Nature. In Greek mythology she birthed many of the major Gods who ruled over different sections of the Earth. Gaia is known as the nurturer, sustainer and giver of love to all who come to the goddess for support. She is known as the spirit of the Earth, plants, rocks and water and when you are blessed with darshan from nature, it is Gaia blessing you.
Gaia Sagrada is the perfect name for our ayahuasca retreat center and eco-community (eco-village) because we strive to be one with Mother Nature and live harmoniously on the Earth, which is a sacred being. It is also the perfect name because this is an ayahuasca retreat center of support and nurturing amidst natural beauty near Cuenca, Ecuador.
