I could not imagine having done Ayahuasca at any other facility. At New Life the environment is one of beauty, peace, healing and constant support. It is truly a place were you can unplug and focus on self growth and regeneration. There is no judgement, no pressure, everybody is accepted and respected exactly how they are and where they are in their journey. Matt and Jeanae were gentle, supportive and informative. Also, they are prepared and organized. Everything you need to be comfortable as well as healthy meals, yoga classes, quiet places to sit and read or journal and evenings talking around a bonfire. The groups are small and each person has their own room and bathroom. I felt this was super important because I needed a private place to process and to quiet my mind at times. Although, the the six others that attended the retreat with me were some of the nicest people I have ever met. My seven day retreat was everything and more than I had hoped for. I felt very relaxed during the Ayahuasca and the Kambo ceremonies even though this was my first experience with both medicines. It has been a week since my retreat and I feel continued improvements everyday. I sleep better, have more energy, feel stronger and am definitely more focused. My path continues to open up for me, this is an awesome journey! I am forever grateful to Matt, Jeanae and New Life Ayahuascsa. I would go back in a heartbeat.
I had a really amazing experience at NLA. Matt and Jeanae are very caring, friendly people and they run their retreat in a very professional manner. I was always well taken care of with great food and really comfortable rooms with a private bathroom. The house where the retreat is held is a really beautiful space to spend a week relaxing and taking part in the ceremonies. The ceremonies themselves usually have no more than 8 people and are really well guided by Matt with an additional 2 other people acting as ‘carers’ to assist people if they need anything. It’s always best to do your own research when deciding on which retreat to go to because drinking plant medicines isn’t always an easy journey. But I can honestly say that NLA is a great place to start if you’re looking for a safe, comfortable place to partake where you’re guided in caring, professional hands at all times.
