Each of our ayahuasca retreat ceremonies follow the Peruvian traditions, are performed in darkness and guided by Icaros, or medicine songs. 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 knowing all parts of ourselves that we can truly find balance.

Matthew Mormello, our ayahuasquero, leads all of our ceremonies. Matt has been involved with plant medicine since 2011, first working with ibogaine in New York and then Costa Rica. In 2014 he began to feel called to work with more intimately with ayahuasca. 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.

Each ceremony begins with cleansing rituals to prepare the space. From there, the night is guided through Matthew's powerful Icaros, or medicine songs, along with sounds from the gong, guitar, drum and flute. Ceremonies last about 3 - 4 hours. Matthew participates in drinking the brew with the guests at every ceremony while Drew and Jeanae are always there to assist. 



Our Beautiful Ayahuasca Retreat Center in Costa Rica

The ayahuasca retreat at New Life Ayahuasca is not your typical jungle ayahuasca experience. We understand the importance of privacy and having personal space during such a profound experience. Every guest has a private room with queen bed and private en-suite bath. 


Our beautiful facility offers a comfortable environment for such an intense process.  We have common areas to socialize, a large indoor pool, hot tub and 20 beautiful acres with hiking trails to to explore. All meals are home cooked with care by Jeanae using local grown and sourced ingredients and follow the ayahuasca diet. WiFi is also available although we discourage the use of electronics prior to 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 complimentary pick up from SJO International Airport at 2pm on the start day of each retreat. We limit our ayahuasca retreat groups to 9 so we can provide individualized attention and support.


Why Choose Us?

An inclusive Center for Healing

Our owners, Jeanae and Matthew, were profoundly transformed through their own personal ayahuasca experiences. They each came from backgrounds of depression and drug abuse but through ayahuasca they were able to gain a new perspective on life and all its possibilities. It is with this humble respect and gratitude for ayahuasca that they have created a therapeutic and healing program for others seeking balance.


New Life Ayahuasca offers 5 or 7 day ayahuasca retreats to experience this sacred plant medicine. We work to provide a safe spiritual environment that promotes healing during you 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 remote 20-acre mountain property and waterfall excursion encourages a connection to nature, allowing you to disengage from the stresses of life and fully retreat into the experience. To maximize healing during your ayahuasca Costa Rica retreat, we offer a variety of additional therapies including Kambo, Yoga and massage. 



Ayahuasca retreats can be beneficial for all people. Regardless of an individuals background or history of spiritual/religious beliefs, 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.

Ayahuasca Retreats in Costa Rica can change your perception of life and all that exists. Many users report a renewed vigor for life and appreciation for nature and the ways in which all things are connected. In recent years, use of ayahuasca has been researched for treating depression, anxiety, PTSD and addiction because of the ways it can alter perceptions of reality. This shift in perception allows for the opportunity of reflecting on past experiences/traumas/histories in a different light and from a place of peace.



While ayahuasca is generally considered to be safe, there are know risks associated with its use. The primary concern is mixing ayahuasca with other medications which could cause adverse reactions. 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 medications. Jeanae and Matthew are certified in CPR and AED use. Although we do all we can to secure the safety of our participants, we are prepared for any situation.



We pride ourselves on guest satisfaction. We have carefully tailored our retreat in an effort to provide a memorable and therapeutic experience for all our guests. It is very important to us to make you feel comfortable, safe and secure in our ceremonial environment.
