Guided Visit to John of God

Gain a deeper understanding of your healing process

Next Trip....TBA

Joao Texeira de Faria, aka John of God, is one of the world’s most powerful medium healers. He has become famous for miraculous healings by curing cancer, AIDS, paralysis, blindness, and much more. Joao is guided by over 30 spirit guides who operate through him; he never takes credit for the healings. The source of healing is always Love and God. The healing center, called the Casa de Dom Inacio, is open to all religious faiths, and non-religious people; it is open to all who have good intent. Healing sessions are free of charge.

Esak Garcia has traveled to Abadiânia many times and has received a blessing from the Entities of the Casa de Dom Inacio to lead groups there. Esak was named Filho da Casa (Son of the House) and given the title of Medio (House Medium). Esak first traveled to Brazil in 1996 on an American Field Service scholarship where he volunteered in a shelter for homeless children. Since then he has been practicing Capoeira (an afro-Brazilian martial art). He lived in Brazil for a total of 3 years and is fluent in Brazilian language and culture. Esak understands the norms and rules of the Casa de Dom Inacio and remains in constant contact with the healing center. As your guide he will make sure you are able to take full advantage of the resources available to you during your 10 day visit by keeping you focused and in communication with the people and entities who are there to help you.


During our visit we will spend the majority of our day at the Casa de Dom Inacio from Wednesday to Friday. From Saturday to Tuesday we will have daily group activities and opportunities to learn more about John of God's work, but most of the time will be spent in meditation, reflection and inward listening. The process of going inside yourself is what allows healing to occur. Your guides and the environment that João Texeira de Faria has created are very helpful to facilitate the inward journey.

Our Typical Day (from Wednesday to Friday) will look something like this:
6:30am - Awake with the sunrise
7am - Breakfast
8-11am - Session at the Casa de Dom Inacio with John of God
11am-12pm - Soup at the Casa de Dom Inacio, and light lunch at our hotel

Todo Anahata presents:
Magical Journey to Tulum, Mexico
Relax and practice yoga on white powder sand beaches and explore the mysteries of the Mayan Culture Next Trip: TBA


Tulum, Mexico is the combination of a white-powder sand beach with crystalline, turquoise Caribbean waters, temples from the ancient Mayan culture, Mexican pueblo, tropical jungle and wildlife reserve. The beaches of Tulum are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This region of Mexico is also famous for it’s underground, fresh-water river system, which creates natural caves and swim holes, called Cenotes. We will also have the opportunity to learn from the living Mayan culture whose ancestors left evidence of a technology that is lost to modern civilization. Just off of Tulum’s coastline is the world’s second largest barrier reef. To the south is a 1.3 million acre wildlife reserve called Sian Ka’an, with over 100 species of mammals, many savannas, cenotes, tropical flaura, and over 25 Mayan archeological zones.


Our Hotel is on the beach. When you step out of your room you are just meters away form the gentle Caribbean waves. We are located walking distance to both Tulum’s ancient Mayan temples and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere.  Part of our facility is an eco-village called Uno, constructed with the utmost importance given to ecological balance. All of the energy consumption at Uno is Solar. The toilets at Uno are compost toilets, which turns all sewage back to fertile soil within one year. We are the guests of a community of beach dwellers who receive us like family.


Our food is catered by the fabulous Sandra Mederos, native of Guadalajara, Mexico, who is certified in the study of living foods from the Hippocrates Health Institute, and a Certified Holistic Health Counselor trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. She will be creating flavorful Mexican food all week using the freshest local ingredients. Sandra is an Intuitive and Inspirational Living Food Artist who is committed to creating delicious and nourishing vegan, living food dishes that support vibrant health and higher consciousness. See Sandra’s bio at www.todoanahata.com.


Todo Anahata is a collective of healing arts professionals, including Esak Garcia and Francisco Morales-Bermudez. Anahata is the Sanskrit name for the heart chakra. Todo Anahata can be translated to All Love. Serving you on this retreat is, for us, an expression of the great love we feel.
