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.
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.
Your donations given regularly or occasionally make it possible for me to dedicate myself fully and with continuity to what I offer.
Thank you for your generosity!
