It is what we are that heals, not what we know.
My name is Gemma; I have always been guided by the fire of my soul and for more than 15 years I have been accompanying people on their spiritual journey and offering deep rest meditation retreats with Open Dharma* around the world.
Pilgrimages, days of solitude in hermitages and caves, meetings with mystics and hermits of the mountains, together with a year of committed activism in the Dominican Republic and another year as a Catholic nun in a small community located in Catalonia gave me the bases for an alive practice rooted in heart.
I studied Agriculture, International Development and Religious Sciences. I was involved in the process of creating l’AUDIR (UNESCO Association for Interreligious Dialogue) and I was a professional beekeeper with my own organic honey.
After some experiences for which I found no books or words, I went to India in search of someone who would know this luminous place, and found Ajay Pal Singh, my kalyan mittra (spiritual friend). I stayed in India for the next 10 years and together with Ajay Pal Singh and Jaya Ashmore, we runned the Open Dharma association and offered retreats in many countries.
Moved by the longing to go back to what is wild and essential, I created the Awakening With Horses program. I loved bringing people closer to my four pottokas mares living in freedom. They became our mirrors and reminded us who we really are.
Lately, I have also explored the beauty of women’s cycles and accompany women to heal, deepen, and rediscover their feminine wisdom, offering retreats for women.
Now I live in the northen coast of Catalonia, Spain, where I offer one-to-one spiritual guidance as well as deep rest retreats in diferent countries and retreat-pilgrimages in nature.
I am a mother and a poet, and I still experience life wider than the explicable and tangible.
