Our services are designed to help you heal and thrive. Shamanic energy medicine offers deep healing at an energetic level that can transform illness into health, balance your emotions, and help you find peace and ease in your life.
Our workshops and events allow you to connect with nature and a community of like-minded people at a deeper, meaningful level. Workshops are geared toward personal healing and communion with nature. Most workshops are held outdoors in our ceremonial tipi.
Ewassa is located in Evergreen Colorado, near Conifer. Nestled in the majestic Rocky Mountains just outside of Denver, this peaceful space offers thick forests, large rock outcroppings and expansive views. The property adjoins a private Denver mountain park with few visitors to provide miles of uninterrupted nature immersion.
Elizabeth (Liz) Gómez is the founder of Ewassa. She was trained in Andean (Q’ero) shamanic practices through The Four Winds Society by Dr. Alberto Villoldo, Marcela Lobos and their team of teachers and is a certified shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner.
Prior to her formal training in energy medicine, Liz spent much of her adult life overseas (West Africa, Haiti, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Brazil…) working in the field of public health. In each of the places she lived, she sought out opportunities to work with or observe traditional medicine men and women in their healing practice.
Liz also spent 10+ years practicing a Brazilian spiritual tradition rooted in the natural world and the four elements. She was initiated as a daughter of Iemanjá Miregum through the Templo Guaracy of Brazil and served as an overseas group coordinator. During that time she regularly conducted nature-based rituals in a variety of outdoor settings and worked closely with the energies of nature or Orixás in ceremony.
Liz has an undergraduate degree in psychology and anthropology, and a master’s degree in public health from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. She is a member of the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and is deeply committed to honoring and living in balance with the earth.
Origins of “Ewassa”
The word “ewassa” comes from the nature-based Brazilian spiritual tradition of Umbanda, where it is used to recognize the nature energy or Orixá of healing, Ossãe. After speaking the salutation for Ossãe, the response is always “ewassa“. The name Ewassa was chosen to honor the healing and transformative power of nature.
