Facilities at Gaia Sagrada

Community Center

In the community center you can use the yoga room, check your emails, sit on a couch by the woodstove, watch the fire, and be at ease. The community center is surrounded by gardens and patios and you can always make a cup of tea.

Dining area

Enjoy outdoor or indoor dining, whichever you prefer. We have beautiful patios, and wonderful indoor areas for you to hang out in. You can even sit in the garden if you want. There is enough space that you can sit by yourself or with the group, whichever you prefer.


We have a small library of books you’re welcome to borrow and read during your stay. All we ask is that you return the books in good shape before you leave.


We have a hot sauna available for your health and rejuvenation endeavors. It is on for certain hours of the day, specifically during free time in the afternoons and evenings. Sit in the sauna for a while, then take a cool dip, very good for your health!

Hot Tub

Enjoy a relaxed half hour or so in the hot tubs surrounded by nature. Loosen up your muscles before a massage. Have a conversation with new friends in soothing water.


There are many trails on the property, as well as on the dirt roads in the community around us. One could enjoy long walks in forests, fields, and country roads. The views in every direction are amazing and it is always lush and green in Ecuador. There is never snow and there is never dry heat, just green! Perhaps that’s why Ecuador is so healing.

Meditation & Hammock Spots

There are many areas to gaze at the scenery of Gaia Sagrada. There are benches and sitting areas everywhere. Just go on the trails and take a walk, you will find them.  We have hammocks everywhere!


These happen all the time at Gaia Sagrada! People bring their guitars and instruments, sing, or just enjoy conversation by the fire. It changes with different groups of people as to what is going on at the campfire. Bring your guitar or other instruments if you want to have some campfire fun.


Bring your laptop for wifi access in the community center area. If you need to transfer documents from your laptop to a computer in city, we suggest you bring a flash drive with you. For a lot more information about internet and internet speeds, please see our Internet Facilities page.

Laundry Service

We provide a laundry service at $5/load for wash, dry, and fold.

      Unfortunately we don’t offer any other programs at this time, but maybe in the future. Right now we are pretty focused on medicine retreats. You can come to a retreat and participate in all the activities, but not the ceremonies if you like, and perhaps use the services of some of the counselors here rather than participating in the ceremonies.
