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 are geared toward personal healing and communion with nature. Most workshops are held outdoors in our ceremonial tipi pictured below. Note: All events and services have currently moved online in the wake of COVID-19.
Ewassa is a nature healing center at a private residence in the forest of the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Evergreen CO. 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. We are easily accessible from Denver, located only 20 minutes from the intersection of I-470 and 285.
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.
Hear more about Liz’s story and the work she does in this interview on Mind Body Radio.
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 a nature-based Brazilian spiritual tradition where it is used to recognize and honor the nature energy or Orixá that represents and embodies healing, Ossãe. After speaking the salutation for Ossãe, the response is always “ewassa“. The name Ewassa was chosen to honor the powerful healing energy that resides in nature and within ourselves.
