Plant Medicine Retreat:

Plant medicine retreats have gained significant popularity as a transformative tool for individuals seeking profound personal growth and healing. Rooted in ancient traditions and wisdom, these retreats offer a unique and powerful way to catalyze deep inner transformation.

Plant medicine serves as a mirror, reflecting our internal landscape and guiding us on a journey back to our true selves.

This journey, though sometimes challenging, is a vital aspect of healing and growing, both within and beyond the ceremony's boundaries.

A plant medicine ceremony can bring emotions, fears, and discomfort to the surface, urging us to confront them and recognize our power to choose how to address them in the present moment and throughout our lives.

During ceremony, Billie offers a safe and nurturing environment. With gentle guidance, you'll delve deep into your inner self, unraveling the roots of your perceptions, values, and beliefs. Through this process, you'll uncover the potential to reshape your view of yourSelf, allowing for a transformative journey towards empowerment and personal growth to take root in your being.

Gaia is returning to our roots,

We have some very exciting news to share with you!

After 7 wonderful years of creating memories and transformations, Gaia Wellness Retreats is returning to our beloved roots!

We are thrilled to announce that we'll be relocating our retreats and programs back to the cherished location we've called home for so many inspiring years.

But wait, there's more!

Our cherished home has undergone a beautiful transformation and is now known as The Yoga Garden Retreat, under the ownership of the property’s architect Robert Hay.

While we are sad to end our partnership with Harmony PEC, we've made this decision with the utmost gratitude and respect.

Although we treasured our time in PEC and deeply respect the wonderful souls behind Harmony PEC, we believe this shift is essential for our staff and the convenience of our cherished clients.

With hearts full of gratitude and excitement, we eagerly anticipate this new chapter of collaboration with Robert and retreat manager Zofia, who share our vision of providing a sanctuary for growth, healing, and connection.

Together, we hope to infuse The Yoga Garden Retreat with the same signature Gaia vibe that has touched countless lives over the years.

And that’s still not all!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be serving the delicious dishes straight from the pages of John Armstrong’s cookbook! John himself will be joining us to lend his culinary expertise whenever he’s available, adding his unique touch to your retreat experience.

We can't express enough how grateful we are for this unexpected turn of events, and we are thrilled to welcome each of you back to this incredible space, where the magic of Gaia was born.

Get ready to reconnect with yourself, nature, and each other at the The Yoga Garden Retreat.
