AYAHUASCA RETREAT

DISCOVER
A GREATER TRUTH

All-inclusive Ayahuasca Retreat Costa Rica

THE RETREAT

New Life Ayahuasca is an intimate ayahuasca retreat located in the tropical rainforest of Costa Rica.
Our intention is to create a safe, sacred space for personal reflection and self-growth. Our retreat offers a unique opportunity to explore the healing properties of ayahuasca in a gorgeous eco-sustainable sanctuary just minutes from miles of pristine Pacific Coastline. 


Jeanae and Matthew have been in service to this work since 2015 and drawing from almost a decade's worth of experience, they have carefully curated a ​quality ayahuasca retreat that encompasses a balance of complimentary healing modalities, time for reflection, and community support.

Our experienced facilitators and guides can help you access and integrate the profound spiritual experience and healing that ayahuasca offers. Using a number of supportive therapies, such as group sharing circles,  hatha yoga sessions, guided nature hikes, and beach excursions, we aim to help you assimilate the ayahuasca experience so that you are more prepared for the integration process at home.

From the moment of arrival, we do all we can to make the ayahuasca retreat feel welcoming and warm. By the end of the retreat, we are humbled to see the transformation of 14 strangers into a beautiful family of unconditional love. We hope you will join us.

ABOUT US

AN INCLUSIVE CENTER FOR HEALING

Matthew and I have been partners in this work since 2014.

 

Everything in our lives has been shaped by Ayahuasca. Not only did she lift us up in our darkest moments after years of battling addiction, but she gave us the purest gift of love in finding each other.

 

We've had our share of ups and downs. Things haven't always been easy. It's been a long road and we've had to navigate many personal and professional challenges over the years. But at the end of the day, ayahuasca has helped us cultivate a deep love rooted in mutual respect, support, and admiration.

 

We've turned to her to help us through trials of marriage and personal doubt. It's because of this work that we've been able to grow stronger as individuals and as partners, lovers, and best friends.

 

We hear all the time from guests that they don't understand how we can do this work, and while we love to help others, the truth is that it's just a happy by-product of helping ourselves. It's our hope that as we continue to heal we are able to better support you in your own healing.

 

Working with ayahuasca is truly humbling. It's not a responsibility we take lightly. Our program is designed to give you a curated balance of support and space.

 

Thank you for letting us share the magic.

THE AYAHUASCA CEREMONY

F_F_2_10_22-502_edited_edited.jpg

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. 

Our ayahuasquero Matthew leads all of our ceremonies. Matthew has been involved with plant medicine since 2011, first with Ibogaine in Mexico on HBO's VICE and then again in Costa Rica. In 2014 he felt called to work more intimately with ayahuasca and started traveling to Peru, completing plant medicine dietas under the guidance of his teacher, famed shaman Don Ron Wheelock.

 

Matthew has completed many master plant dietas, has facilitated hundreds of ceremonies, and has evolved into a strong and compassionate ceremonial leader. He strives to create a safe healing environment for all our participants.

Our ceremonies 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 instruments. 

 

Matthew drinks the brew at every ceremony so he can navigate and guide the energy of the room. Jeanae and a minimum of 2 additional helpers are always there to assist as needed.

Benefits

BENEFITS OF AYAHUASCA

Enhance your life and find balance with a traditional ayahuasca retreat in beautiful Costa Rica. Our all-inclusive programs have been curated to provide authentic ceremonies, yoga, and nature excursions in a uniquely intimate setting. An ayahuasca retreat 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 shift your perspective,  enhance your awareness of life and elevate your spirituality.

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

SAFETY

Ayahuasca is 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 have adverse interactions or even result in death. To ensure the safety of all our guests, we require every participant to complete a medical questionnaire prior to booking.

 

In addition to the screening protocol, our center is equipped with emergency medical equipment such as an AED (automatic electronic defibrillator) and emergency medications. Jeanae and Matthew are certified in CPR and AED use. We always have 2 assistants at every ceremony to respond where needed.
