Ewassa’s services are designed to help you heal and thrive. Energy medicine offers healing at an energetic and soul level that can help transform traumas into wisdom, rebalance turbulent emotions, and bring more inspiration, purpose and ease in your life. Nature-based healing reconnects you with nature’s wisdom to better understand and transform your inner landscape, working with the elemental forces of Fire, Earth, Water and Air.
Our workshops and events allow you to connect with a community of like-minded people at a meaningful level. Events include full moon fire ceremonies, river ceremonies for emotional release, earth-honoring despacho ceremonies, solstice or equinox celebrations, shamanic journeys, and workshops related to healing with the four elements. All events are intended to support deep emotional and energetic 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 or energy 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) Beachy Gómez is the founder of Ewassa and author of the book From the Depths of Creation: A Nature-Based Path to Healing. She is a certified Energy Medicine Practitioner and was trained in Andean (Q’ero) shamanic healing practices through The Four Winds Society.
Liz spent much of her adult life overseas working in the field of public health (West Africa, Haiti, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Central America). In each of the places she lived, she also sought out opportunities to work with or observe traditional medicine men and women in their healing practices. Her observations and personal experiences of healing through the lens of multiple cultures have helped inform her practice today.
In 1998, Liz began practicing a Brazilian spiritual tradition rooted in the natural world and the four elements. She was initiated as a daughter of Iemanjá (the ocean) in Brazil in 2003 and has since conducted a wide variety of nature-based healing ceremonies both in the US and overseas.
