Ewassa 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 include shamanic journeys, guided meditations, shamanic skills, and classes to learn about the healing power of the Four Elements. All events and classes are designed to support soul-level healing. Many of our workshops are held outdoors or in the ceremonial tipi pictured below, but we also offer online and on-demand workshops.
Origins of “Ewassa”
The name Ewassa comes from a nature-based Brazilian spiritual tradition where it is spoken to recognize and honor the Orixá of healing, Ossãe. After speaking the salutation for Ossãe, the response is “ewassa“. The name Ewassa was chosen to honor the powerful healing energy that resides in nature and within ourselves.
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 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 has practiced a Brazilian spiritual tradition rooted in the natural world and the four elements for more than 20 years. She was initiated as a daughter of Iemanjá Miregum in Brazil in 2003 and has since conducted a wide variety of nature-based healing ceremonies both in the US and overseas.
Liz has an undergraduate degree in psychology and anthropology, and a Master of Health Sciences (MHS) degree in public health from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg 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.
