ALL CAPS TITLE
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. Matt 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 began to feel called to work more intimately with ayahuasca and started traveling to Peru, completing plant medicine dietas under the guidance of his teacher. 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 insturments. 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 an additional helper are always there to assist as non-participants.
OUR BEAUTIFUL AYAHUASCA RETREAT IN COSTA RICA
The ayahuasca retreat at New Life Ayahuasca is not your typical jungle ayahuasca experience. We understand the importance of privacy and personal space during such a profound experience. Each guest is offered a private room with a queen bed and a full private bathroom.
Our expansive facility offers a comfortable enviornment for such an intense process. We have common areas to socialize, a large indoor pool, a hot tub, and 20 beautiful acres with hiking trails to explore.
All meals are home-cooked with care by Jeanae using locally grown and sourced ingredients and follow the ayahuasca diet. WiFi is also available although we discourage the use of electronics prior to the ceremony to focus on the intention for the journey ahead.
Our charming center in San Ramon is a little over an hour from the airport. We provide a complimentary pick-up from SJO International Airport at 2 pm on the start day of each retreat. We limit our ayahuasca retreat groups to 9 so we can provide individualized attention and support.

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
BENEFITS OF AYAHUASCA
Ayahuasca is generally considered to be safe when used properly, however, there are known risks associated with its use. The primary concern is interactions between ayahuasca and other medications which could many adverse effects, even death. We do not take this responsibility lightly. To ensure the safety of all our guests, we require every potential participant to complete a medical questionnaire over the phone prior to booking.
In addition to this screening protocol, our center is equipped with emergency medical equipment such as an AED (automatic electronic defibrillator), oxygen and emergency medications. Jeanae and Matthew are in certified in CPR and AED use. We always have 2 sitters at every ceremony to assist when necessary.
