Plant Medicine Guide


Amanda Devine

My desire to get more from meditation than an app could provide led me to a personal session with Billie.  


Healing and peaceful energy ooozed out of Billie, 

and wow, that first session opened me up to a world of healing within me.


She was instantaneously my guide on a healing journey that, over a period of a few months, has led me back to my truth, who I want to be, and what I want from my life.  

I am grateful everyday that a google search miraculously led me to Billie.

I continue to seek her support and guidance on this journey of life.  Thank you Billie"

A Personal Message from
John & Billie

It is with a mix of deep sadness and profound joy that we write this heartfelt message to our beloved Gaia family.


As we get ready to depart from 209 Chemin Usher in Alcove on September 1, 2023, we would like to express our sincerest well wishes to Robert Hay, who will be transitioning the property back to The Yoga Garden.


Thank you Robert for allowing us to create, manifest and live out this beautiful journey in this magical space 


We would also like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to each and every beautiful soul we have been fortunate enough to collaborate with, serve, and create a safe space for.


We are deeply honored by the trust that has been bestowed upon us. It is a privilege we hold in the highest regard. 


It has been an incredible journey from beginning to present, made possible only by the remarkable souls who came together to dream this dream with us.


This is not the end for Gaia Wellness; rather, it marks the beginning of an exciting transition into a new and exhilarating adventure!


Beginning September 1, 2023, John has personally decided to step back from his position as Co-Owner and Director of Gaia Wellness. However, he will continue to be a cherished member of the Gaia Team in his new role as a Culinary Artist at our upcoming retreats to be announced soon.


Billie has extended a warm invitation to her soul sister and cousin, Sherry Quail, to embark on this new adventure together as Co-Directors of Gaia Wellness Retreats.


The Gaia Wellness Clinic in Barrhaven, ON will continue to provide private services with Billie. Following the completion of the transition on September 1, appointment availability will be expanded.


Gaia Wellness Retreats is delighted to announce that we will continue to offer our Personal and Group Retreats and Programs in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, and other exciting Canadian locations yet to be unveiled.


Gaia Wellness will also continue making regular visits to Kawawachikamach, QC to bring our services to our dear friends of the Naskapi Nation. 


With the same extraordinary team and our signature transformative retreats, we invite you to join us in discovering new locations and experiencing exciting programs that will soon be revealed.


Please visit Gaia Wellness Retreats' brand new website and subscribe to our newsletter to stay updated on all the latest information about our upcoming fall/winter retreats, trainings, and programs available locally and internationally.


It is with profound gratitude that we express our deepest appreciation to our Gaia family for your continued, unwavering support.


Many blessings,


John & Billie
