Founder Christine Breese started the Gaia Sagrada retreat. Its purpose is to bring effective plant medicine therapy to people in a safe and nurturing way. She has worked with shamanism for many years. And she believes that true enlightenment can be found through one of her ayahuasca retreats.

With mounting evidence supporting microdosing psychedelics to improve mood and focus, more and more people are becoming interested in ayahuasca ceremonies. Whether somebody has persistent mental health issues, chronic pain, or addiction tendencies, Breese believes this is an era of change. The increasing research to back up the use of psychedelics may confirm that she is right about that.

Breese has a Youtube channel with over 50,000 subscribers. We always find that researching a retreat’s video collection is a great way to understand if it is right for you. Many of these retreats are expensive. And while the potential healing power they provide can be immense, you want to make sure they’re right for you. Especially before you put down a deposit. We like the fact that Christine offers a catalog of videos. This gives potential visitors the opportunity to know her style and point of view. And we wish more retreats would do the same!
