AYAHUASCA PERU

HEALING THE MIND AND SOUL WITH
AYAHUASCA IN PERU

AYAHUASCA PERU RETREAT

Peru is the most popular ayahuasca retreat destination for those looking to experience the healing powers of this powerful plant medicine in its native environment. Ayahuasca's use originates in the heart of the Amazonian River Basin. It is used in Peru, Brazil, and Ecuador and is growing in popularity in Costa Rica as well.

 

Through the use of traditional Amazonian healing practices, Ayahuasca Peru can offer a unique opportunity to explore the depths of your inner self and gain insight into the sacred mysteries of the Amazon rainforest. There is definitely magic to drinking ayahuasca in Peru and we would never discourage anyone from traveling there. In fact, we go down to Peru many times a year to continue our training with our teacher, Don Ron Wheelock at his camp El Purguero in Iquitos, Peru.

However, for some people, traveling so far and going into the jungle can be daunting.  New Life Ayahuasca chose Costa Rica as our location for a number of reasons, including its ease of accessibility and beautiful biodiversity.

No matter where you choose, Costa Rica or Ayahuasca in Peru, ayahuasca can open our eyes to new perspectives and healings of the mind, body and soul.

aboutus

Hello! Our names are Jeanae White and Matthew Mormello. We are the owners of New Life Ayahuasca. We are a married couple who found ourselves (and eachother!) through plant medicine.

We both come from dark backgrounds filled with depression, drug abuse and hopelessness. Through the use of plant medicines, we slowly but surely began to reconnect to the strength within and see our lives with a fresh perspective.

It was through the lessons we learned from ayahuasca that we were able to transform our lives. It is with humble gratitude that we provide an experience for others so that they too may find balance, peace and self love.

 

Since 2014 we have been fully immersed in our work, not only in an effort to help others but to continue to help ourselves. We created our retreats with an emphasis on safety, inclusivity, tradition, intention and respect.

SAFETY

Your physical and emotional safety are our highest priority.

 

While ayahuasca is safe when used properly, there are a few medical conditions and medications that are contraindicated with ayahuasca. Every participant is asked to complete a medical questionnaire over the phone to ensure the safety of our ayahuasca retreats. In case of emergency, Matt and Jeanae are certified in CPR and have training with the use of our AED (Automated External Defibrillator). We are 25 minutes from a medical center. 

Our small groups enable us to provide quality service and attention to every guest. Each ceremony is supported by 4 team members : Our ayahuasqueros, Matthew and Jeanae, who drink ayahuasca with each group to help guide the experience and 2 additional helpers, who do not drink during the ceremony and are there to assist any participant that may require attention. A male responds to the men and a female responds to the women, ensuring that everyone feels safe and comfortable during such a vulnerable and emotional experience.

Inclusivity

A welcoming environment for all.

Ayahuasca retreats can be beneficial for all people. Ayahuasca does not see race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Regardless of an individuals 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 desire to have an experience that can enhance your spirituality and awareness of life and all that surrounds us.

At New Life Ayahuasca, all are welcome. We embrace each individual, appreciating the things that make us unique but understanding we all are one. It is our promise to provide an equal, compassionate and therapeutic environment for every guest that comes to our center.

Inclusivety

Ayahuasca has been used in a traditional way for thousands of years. We aim to respect the Peruvian traditions and honor them through our ceremonies. Since 2014 our ayahuasquero, Matthew, has been traveling to Iquitos, Peru multiple times a year to complete his plant dietas and learn the Peruvian traditions.

During the ayahuasca ceremonies, Matt sings traditional medicine songs, called Icaros. Some of the Icaros he has been taught, ancient songs passed down from teacher to student. Other of his Icaros are uniquely his, given to him by the medicine. Mapacho, also known as jungle tobacco, is also heavily used during the ceremony for cleansing and protection.

Intention

What drives the experience

When considering an ayahuasca retreat, it is important not only to consider safetyqualification, experience, etc. but also to know the intention of the facilitators.  Jeanae and Matt are completely dedicated to this work. They are indebted to ayahuasca for everything it has brought into their lives.

 

Matthew puts 100% of himself into each ceremony and the purity of his intention is clear. We do not take lightly the trust each guest has given us to facilitate an experience with ayahuasca and all her wisdom.

It is our deepest intention to respect ayahuasca and facilitate a therapeutic and healing experience in a supportive space. We hope that we can help you find and focus on your own intention, a commitment to growth.
