A GREATER TRUTH
*NOTE- WE DO NOT OFFER ANY AYAHUASCA RETREATS OR CEREMONIES IN THE UNITED STATES. THIS PAGE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.*
Many people within the United States have a growing interest in the therapeutic benefits of ayahuasca and are seeking it out as a tool to assist in healing from PTSD, depression, and anxiety and to gain an enhanced spiritual connection with life.
The United States has been making some progress over the last few years in embracing the therapeutic value of plant medicines. We are seeing a growing number of cities setting precedents with decriminalization initiatives and even, in some cases, the legalization of psychedelic therapy.
While it is certainly a step in the right direction and we hope these initiatives will pave the road to full legalization and therapeutic application, psychedelic substances such as ayahuasca are still illegal at a federal level in the United States, which makes offering ayahuasca retreats illegal.
For that reason, among others, New Life Ayahuasca has chosen beautiful Costa Rica for our home. We offer ayahuasca retreats in Costa Rica all year long. Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and spending time in its abundance of nature is therapy in and of itself.
We also believe there is a great deal of therapeutic value in getting away from your current environment to really focus on the ayahuasca experience and commit to healing. While ayahuasca can offer great value and insights on its own, the environment you are in afterward will significantly impact your integration process and how well you are able to internalize the messages you have received.
We hope you will join us in the country of 'Pura Vida' to embrace a new life and new perspective through the healing power of ayahuasca.
ALL INCLUSIVE PRICING FOR EVERY RETREAT:
2 or 3 Traditional ceremonies
2 or 3 Hatha yoga sessions
Intimate group of 14 max
Private or shared room
ALL CAPS TITLE
Our retreats are tailored to meet the needs of each individual, and we strive to provide a holistic experience that will expand your mind and nourish your soul. We offer year-round retreats in Costa Rica, and our experienced facilitators are dedicated to helping you find a deeper understanding of yourself and the world.
A shaman is a person who interacts with the spiritual realm through altered states of consciousness.
Matthew has dedicated himself to mastering his craft. He has completed many master plant dietas and has learned valuable lessons in his years of facilitating ceremonies that have made him skilled in navigating energy, communicating with spirits, and creating a safe container for all participants. He has the support of many spiritual allies and protectors.
The ayahuasca shaman is responsible for guiding the experience. The ceremonial music is one of the most influential elements of the ayahuasca experience.
At New Life Ayahuasca, this includes Icaros (traditional medicine songs), guitar, drums, gong, singing bowls, bells, kalimba, and flute. Matthew has been passed down generational Icacros from his teachers, and he has developed his own unique style of chanting.
Matthew, a highly sensitive and intuitive empath, adapts the songs of the ceremony to meet the energy of the room. The songs of the spirit come to him, and his powerful voice carries them through the space. This is why it is so important to us to keep our groups intimate so that the energetic space is maintained with respect to each individual's experience.
OUR BEAUTIFUL AYAHUASCA RETREAT
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.
Join us on a journey to enhance your life and find balance with a traditional ayahuasca retreat in beautiful Costa Rica. Discover our all-inclusive programs which feature private rooms, yoga, massage, waterfall excursion, and more.
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
