❞ There are no words that can truly express what went down at this workshop… Gaia is the real deal and an instrument of Source. Her work is what finally will wake up the world! I am grateful for this life and at peace with my dharma ❞
Luna Brigida
” A little over 2 years ago I attended the 3 week Tantric Way course offered by Gaia. During which, I learned so much about what it is to be human. To be both an animal and a spiritual being with consciousness. What impacted me most was Gaia’s emphasis on breathing. We did many exercises which involved awareness on our breathing. I learned that the breath is the link, the key to access the body. The passage way between the higher and lower worlds. This is a priceless skill to have. “Breath Awareness” as Gaia taught it. I would recommend Gaia and her courses to anyone. Her ability to see past our own delusions, our blame and our guilt, allows her to cut to the truth. She reveals our true desires to ourselves. She is not perfect, and she does not claim to be. But she has a fire that can shine a light on the “hard to see” places within ourselves. I am forever grateful for the 3 weeks that I spent with her ” Thank you Gaia
❞ Great and powerful training! Gaia Ma is the best teacher and is really holding the space. You will step into your deepest power and have the tools to work with your shadows! ❞
Marie Castelli-Arrosa
❞ Without doubt one of the most powerful courses I’ve participated in! This course helped me see my gifts, step into my power, access my intuition and hold space from with much deeper presence ❞
Live – Love -Serve
Gaia, Earth. Ma, Mother. Mother earth is the global organism that we all are !
I invite you to build your awareness, heal yourself, step into empowerment, and share the gift of transformation into the world !
