HEALING THE MIND AND SOUL WITH AYAHUASCA
AYAHUASCA IN ITALY
ALL INCLUSIVE AYAHUASCA RETREAT
Italy is one of the few countries in which Ayahuasca is fully legal. Ayahuasca was declared non-narcotic in two separate judgments in 2005 and 2007. There appears to be no specific law prohibiting ayahuasca in Italy at this time. For that reason, New Life Ayahuasca has chosen to offer 1 - 2 ayahuasca retreats per year in Italy, up north at the border of Switzerland in the Italian Alps.
We will be offering events 1 - 2 times a year at a beautiful property with private rooms with en-suite bathrooms and ayahuasca ceremonies led by our skilled ayahuasquero, Matthew.
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.
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.
Your physical and emotional safety are our highest priority.
While ayahuasca is generally considered very safe when used properly, there are a few medical conditions as well as medications that are contraindicated with ayahausca. During the booking process you will be asked to complete a brief medical questionnaire over the phone to ensure that you can safely participate in an ayahuasca retreat. In case of emergency, both 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 ensure that we can provide quality service and attention to each guest. Every ceremony is supported by 3 of our staff : Our ayahuasquero, Matthew, drinks ayahuasca with each group at every ceremony to help guide the experience through Icaros and 2 additional support staff: Jeanae and an additional helper, who do not drink during the ceremony and are there only to assist or help any participant that may require attention. A male responds to the men and Jeanae responds to the women ensuring that everyone feels safe and comfortable during such a vulnerable and emotional experience.
A warm and welcoming enviornment for all.
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.
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.
What drives the experience
When considering an ayahuasca retreat, it is important not only to consider safety, qualification, 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.
Our promise is to treat every guest in a compassionate and professional manner. The respect of each guest's process, space, privacy and values is always upheld to the highest standard. We are an intimate center offering small groups of no more than 9 participants per retreat. With over 100 5 star reviews and testimonials, our commitment and dedication to guest satisfaction is clear.
