Only 30 minutes from the modern city of Quito, Ecuador. 5 minutes from the Intinan museum (the actual GPS verified equator museum), and a stones throw from Museo Templo del Sol "the museum temple of the sun".

Nestled in the center of amazing energy it is easy to find healing the moment you step on the land. This is the perfect place to comfortably unplug and find balance with nature.

Hypnosis: Balancing Chakra 1 Ground Yourself in the Present

When your first Chakra is unbalanced you can feel anxious about the future, fearful, have general anxiety, have depression, trouble with addictions, eating disorders, feel unstable or stressed.

Samantha created this hypnosis to help people balance their first Chakra, the root, called Muladhara. When this chakra is balanced you can feel grounded, strong, you can live in the present moment, and easily enjoy your daily life.
