Internet Access at Gaia Sagrada
Internet speeds at Gaia Sagrada are comfortable for emailing, Facebook, blogs, or forums, but not for audio or video types of internet activities. Please share the bandwidth with others. If you are by yourself and no one else is using the internet at the time you will be able to make a Skype phone call, possibly two people can use Skype at a time, but three at the same time cannot.
We ask that you PLEASE do not download large files while you are here at Gaia Sagrada or do high bandwidth activities like watching a lot of videos or movies online. The bandwidth must be shared by all here at Gaia Sagrada. It’s a miracle that we even have internet here for checking emails! This costs $600 – $900 per month for what little bandwidth we have in the country. We hope you can understand. You can always use the internet cafes in Cuenca or Gualaceo for high bandwidth internet needs that we cannot service.
Besides, you’re on retreat! Maybe it would be good to let go of endless cruising and video watching, and simply check your email now and then. This is YOU unplugged, a beautiful song indeed! Connect with what is right in front of you in this present moment and truly be here now. Enjoy the nature blessings, sit in the sun, and be at peace with the sounds and activities around you. This isreal life at Gaia Sagrada!
