The goal of our ceremonies is to create a safe and therapeutic atmosphere that encourages each participant to explore and journey within themselves, to confront the darkness, and embrace the light. It is only through this duality and embracing all parts of ourselves that we can truly know ourselves and find balance.
Matthew Mormello, our ayahuasquero, leads all of our ceremonies. Matthew has been involved with plant medicine since 2011, first with Iboga in Mexico on HBO's VICE and then again in Costa Rica. In 2014 he felt called to work more intimately with ayahuasca and started traveling to Peru, completing plant medicine dietas under the guidance of his teacher, famed shaman Don Ron Wheelock. He has participated in hundreds of ceremonies and has evolved into a strong and compassionate ceremonial facilitator. He strives to create a safe healing environment for all our participants.
Our ceremonies are based on the Peruvian traditions, are performed in darkness, and are guided by Icaros, or medicine songs. Each ceremony begins with cleansing rituals to prepare the space. From there, the night is guided through Matthew's powerful Icaros along accompanied by a variety of other instruments. Ceremonies last about 3 - 4 hours.
Matthew drinks the brew at every ceremony with the group so he can navigate the energy of the room. Jeanae and Jason are always there to assist as non-participants.
OUR BEAUTIFUL AYAHUASCA RETREAT IN ITALY
We are located less than a mile from one of Costa Rica's gorgeous beaches on the Pacific Coast. Nestled on the hillside, we have incredible ocean views and picturesque sunsets visible from every room.
Our expansive facility offers a comfortable environment for such an intense process. We offer both private and shared accommodations. We have communal areas to socialize, a large pool, a fire pit, a lounge area, an outdoor kitchen, and miles of hiking trails.
All meals are prepared with care by Jeanae using locally grown and sourced ingredients. We follow a relaxed ayahuasca diet, providing food that is vegan, nutritious, colorful, and flavorful.
WiFi is available although we discourage the use of electronics prior to the ceremony to focus on the intention for the journey ahead.
We limit our ayahuasca retreat groups to 14 so we can provide individualized attention and support.
WHY CHOOSE US?
AN INCLUSIVE CENTER FOR HEALING
Hi! We are Jeanae and Matthew, owners of NLA. We have both experienced significant life transformation with the assistance of plant medicine, first with iboga and then ayahuasca. We both came from backgrounds filled with addiction, depression, and just an overwhelming feeling of being lost. Finally, after many failed attempts through traditional modalities, we were able to gain a new perspective on life and realize deep healing through plant medicine. It is with this humble respect and gratitude for ayahuasca that we have created a program for others seeking to find balance in life.
New Life Ayahuasca offers 5 or 7 day ayahuasca retreats in Italy and Costa Rica. We work to provide a safe spiritual environment that promotes healing during your stay. We have felt the profound effects of this medicine and have made it our mission to help others on their journey to spiritual and personal growth. Our program is designed to give you a curated balance of support and space.
The property encourages a connection to nature, allowing you to disengage from the stresses of life and fully retreat into the experience. We hope you will join us in taking the first step to healing yourself through the guidance of ayahuasca.

Ayahuasca retreats can be beneficial for anyone, so long as the desire is there. Regardless of an individual's background, an ayahuasca experience can bring about intense emotions and revelations that can lead to a better life. The only thing you need is an open mind and the intention to have an experience that can enhance your spirituality and awareness of life and all that surrounds us.
An ayahuasca retreat in Costa Rica can change your perception of life and all that exists. Many users report a renewed passion for life, an appreciation for nature, and a greater understanding of the ways in which all things are connected.
In more recent years, ayahuasca has been studied for its unique ability to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. Because of the ways ayahuasca can offer renewed perspectives of life, users are able to see a path forward that had previously been veiled. This shift in mindset provides an opportunity to reflect on past experiences/traumas/histories in a different light and from a place of peace
