About This Center

We, Victoria and Gray, began working together in the summer of 2011 and embarked on our first travel that December, and have been going ever since. Starting in Florida and continuing to Peru, California, Mexico, Hawaii and multiple tours across the US we have been reaching out to a variety of communities, leading ceremonies in yoga studios and churches and sharing our offerings. We love what we do. We love to see the shifts and changes in people as they open to new ways of feeling, seeing and being. We have been warmly received and are welcome to return to all the places we have been.

We guide shamanic-themed journeys to Peru, Hawaii, Ecuador and New Mexico. We work with small (2-3 people) to medium (up to 15) sized groups, in a variety of pricing models, based upon program details and duration. These events are highly experiential and for those looking to deepen their own process of understanding and being. If you are interested or want more information on these journeys, please contact us.

“Samanayo” is a tribute to my Ecuadorian teachers, and shamans across the planet who are generously sharing their traditions, their methods of healing, and their energy medicine. It is for all who share their light and love in service to others.

  •   Pure Love

    “If anyone is looking for the heart of healing and wants to experience pure love and nurturing from two angels on earth this is the trip to take. Being surrounded by mountains that spoke to my soul and having my heart held through this whole trip brought me to the deepest healing imaginable. I couldn't recommend it highly enough to everyone. I love you both so much! " Judith Thompson Nd 2013

  •   Amazing

    "It is amazing how the 8-day Mystical Peru journey felt like a lifetime of profound experiences -- including breathtaking Machu Picchu and other ancient sites, sacred ceremonies, sound healings, friendship, and so much more. The nurturing guidance by Victoria and Gray made the trip extra special. I'm forever changed by my experience." Lisa - Granite Bay, CA

  •   Awesome

    If you've attended one of Samanayo's vibrational EFT sessions, had a private healing, or joined them in any other sacred ceremony, then you already know the incredible power these two beings share. Having joined them on a journey through the sacred valley this fall, I now know those experiences had barely scratched the surface. The setting of this most special place on earth, and the nature of becoming one with a group for such a length; truly sets the bar for healing and discovery. One on one sessions and workshops can work profound changes in us, but oftentimes we forget it is our own power grounding in the change. Embarking on a journey with friends known and also those still unknown challenges us to anchor in our own might as individuals. Gray and Victoria work as wonderful catalysts and facilitators; by opening up and evolving amidst these other compassionate eyes growing through similar and different throes, we take head on the risk and rewards of clarity and transparency. It was daunting at first being such an introvert as I was, sharing my most intimate details of self and aspiration, not just with those I looked up to as healers, but others whom for some reason my ego still feared judgement from. This began to change more and more as the week wore on however, as I realized and owned that almost always the ego is the harshest judge. I saved an entire year to make this tril happen and every single moment of it was worth every bit of prior sacrifice. I have emerged from this adventure more open than I had had ever even thought I might. All the better I met and made several new friends who became family as we all grew. It's going to be o longing wait til next I see all these wonderful people and places whenever our paths cross next. if you're ready to or wanting to open your heart and step into love, then Join Samanayo on one of their epic journeys through incredible spaces outside and within yourself. - Brent Blackburn September 2015
