Gaia Sagrada Work Exchange Program

Maximum capacity: 1 people
Food included
All guests of Gaia Sagrada become part of the family and most don’t want to leave once their retreat is over, which is why we created the Gaia Sagrada Work Exchange Program!

We are offering open-minded, open-hearted people the opportunity to join our family and live with us here in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador for 2-3 months, in exchange for help around our center.

Although preference is given to former guests who have been with us for a retreat, we do welcome applications from anyone that is called to be of service to the work that we do here.

Our volunteers are not only relied upon to help in the kitchen or work in the gardens. We’re looking for people that have the calling to help others and to be of service to humanity!

This is an incredible opportunity for anyone on the path to becoming a healer, counselor or helper of others. Whilst it’s certainly not a prerequisite, a large portion of our applicants are already psychologists, counselors, spiritual teachers and so on. Here at Gaia Sagrada we facilitate and witness deep healing and transformation on a daily basis. This is a unique opportunity to learn about the human condition, consciousness and beyond!

However, your educational background really isn’t important to us. What we look for in volunteers is the desire to be a part of our vision to make the world a better place!

This really isn’t an opportunity to experience plant medicine for less or to become a shaman in training. If you’re coming to plant medicine for personal healing, we really do advise that you attend a retreat as a guest first, to allow yourself the time and space to focus on yourself and your process.

All volunteers are given the opportunity to participate in ceremonies during their time at Gaia Sagrada, but the primary focus of being here is to help and support our guests. In the past we have found that volunteers who have had a big process to work through with the plant medicines then find it difficult to follow through with their daily responsibilities.

Life at Gaia Sagrada is magical. We run our retreats on pure love. But sometimes this can be very demanding, energetically and emotionally, and so it is important that our volunteers are able to keep themselves energetically clean and stable, understand how to avoid emotional transference and know how to set appropriate boundaries.

Whilst it is not essential for applicants to have prior experience with Ayahuasca or San Pedro, it is preferable that our volunteers understand the space that our guests will be working in before they join our team. For this reason, experience with these plant medicines or other psychoactive materials is beneficial.
