Visit to John of God in Abadiânia, Brazil
Journey to Tulum, Mexico
to John of God
Gain a deeper understanding of your
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

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
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
