Grow Your Intuitive Gifts in the

Cloud Forest of Ecuador

Are you ready to grow your self-awareness and explore your intuitive gifts?

Join trusted and accomplished intuitive, energy healer, and educator Dana Childs & trip-planner extraordinaire, Charlotte McGhee for this seven-day adventure that journeys to the heart of Ecuador and to your spirit.


Our journey will start in Quito, the capital and a UNESCO world heritage site. We’ll briefly explore the history of Quito & then make our way to the cloud forest.

We’ll stay in riverside cabins at our private retreat in the mountains. You’ll wake up to the sounds of the forest & explore what it has to offer: wonder, a sense of peace & an opportunity to get away from it all.

  • 1 night in boutique hotel in Old Town Quito, a UNESCO heritage site (breakfast included)

  • 6 days/5 nights at a private ecolodge in the cloud forest region of Ecuador, famous for flora & fauna, especially hummingbirds & butterflies
