    Re: Neverland Review , I completely agree with you Curious Rambler!!

    Well, after volunteering & teaching Math and English in Quinara and Tumianuma for 7 months and paying the weekly fee for myself and my traveling partner at Neverland Organic Farm with Lucas Christenson, fellow kindred spirits Amy Sills , Anna, 27 , Martha, Hanz , and many Ecuadorian locals, Tina publicized our honest , donated and volunteered help on her website ( to attract more business for herself (“Julia, and Alaina, previous volunteers, have had strong ideas on providing guidance towards higher education and have helped these kids be more likely to go on to university. “) . Unfortunately, she then extorted (while in Ecuador and while maintaining Neverland Organic Farm in Ecuador) over twice my family’s annual farm income from our Montana State Government in Montana of the United States by charging us with overtime when we gave her an agreed salary and a place to live for 4 months to help Neverland Farm when she asked me for work. I hope she gives Silvia, Carlos, Patricio and the schools at least $5,000 each for all their genuine daily work that truly carries the farm, as all of us that have stayed on the farm know so well. As she is a United States citizen , Tina can and will do that to people all over the world I have learned ( . Lucas, remember when we used to always wonder if Tina was telling the truth amidst all her stories? Well, when someone shows you their true colors, believe them. Bless and release world family! I am posting this review because I believe everyone is special and can do magical things when you create business with others that are not trying to take advantage of others. There are so many other beautiful places to go and people to enjoy life with. I will return to Neverland when it is being guided by nature with intentions to bring out the best in everyone, not just talk about it.

    Travel , volunteer and donate to Neverland Organic Farm at your own risk.

      Refer to a guide book for that info such as Lonely Planet or Rough Guides. Banos is easy enough to get accommodation just by showing up though, that way you can check it out too. The exception would be during any festival including Carnaval. Enjoy Ecuador and Banos!!

    Hello powerful lady,

    I have enjoyed reading your experience in Ecuardor. Just want to know if you are still in contact with angels, beings whom guided you during the Ayahuasca and San pedro’s ceremonies. Did you have all your questions answered? Thanks so much for being who you are. Greetings Noellie

      Hey Noellie…thank you for such a delightful comment. I always love hearing any feedback. I am most definitely still in contact with my angels, mother Ayahuasca will always remain within in some way. I had my intentions met might more than I could have ever imagined. Ecuador and specifically the retreat at Gaia Sagrada was phenomenal, life changing. I would recommend anyone to go. Thanks again Noellie for your love and fabulous energy. All the best. Peace.
