Rediscover and reconnect to your higher self.
Our therapeutic ayahuasca retreat is designed to support healing, release, and restoration through an honest reflection of self. Ayahuasca is a powerful teacher that reveals the truth of all things.
We are all perfectly imperfect, encompassing both the light and the dark energies of the universe. It is through acceptance of this duality that we can fully embrace self-love and personal growth.
Be inspired and find your community. We welcome retreats of up to 14 participants from all different backgrounds that come together as a family to support each other and share the ayahuasca experience in such an authentic and vulnerable way that creates lifelong bonds.
Our facility is nestled in a tropical oasis less than one mile from one of Costa Rica’s gorgeous beaches in a world-famous Blue Zone.
The ayahuasca retreat includes powerful ceremonies led by highly skilled facilitators, intimate groups, hatha yoga, intention meditations, sharing circles, nutritious vegan meals, and beach trips.
We hope you will join us.
Our ceremonies are expertly guided with Icaros by highly skilled and traditionally trained facilitators. We offer a high participant to facilitator ratio.
Pick up and Drop off shuttles are provided from Liberia Airport at designated times. We make the transition to our facility as easy and seamless as possible.
Yoga practices appropriate for all skill levels that utilize queued breath work with intentional movement sequences. 45 minutes and 15 minutes of meditation.
Our groups become family. An intimate setting of 14 or less means we can provide individual attention to every participant both inside and outside the ceremony space.
Explore some of Costa Rica’s best beaches. Rent a board and get a surf lesson, play in the waves, or walk the expansive sandy coastline peppered with tidepools.
An ayahuasca diet full of flavor. All meals are vegan and prepared with locally sourced, fresh fruits and vegetables using moderate amounts of salt and spices.
The heart of the retreat, our fire circle is a social zone and the place where integration starts after each ceremony. Fires are kept every night of the retreat for purification.
Our lush tropical jungle sanctuary interacts with the environment around it. Expect visits from a variety of wildlife including Monkeys, Macaws and Iguanas.
A safe place to process your experience with the group. We gather in the maloca and share our intentions, visions and emotions to begin the integration process.
We are located in Blue Zone, which is a geographic area that experiences lower rates of chronic disease and people live longer than anywhere else in the world.

Matthew has been working with ayahuasca since 2014. He guides each participant through the experience with his Icaros, or medicine songs. Matthew is a highly sensitive and intuitive empath, which makes him skilled at adapting the songs of the ceremony to meet the energy needs of the room. This is why it is so important to keep our ayahuasca retreat intimate so that the energetic space is maintained with respect to each individual's experience. Matthew is supported by his wife, Jeanae, who plays the flute, and two additional helpers.
Our ceremonies are offered in darkness, promoting an inward journey to heal the soul.
Matthew has facilitated hundreds of ceremonies and leads with compassion, love, and a deep connection to spirit.
Matthew and Jeanae have been traditionally trained in Iquitos, Peru where they have both completed many master plant dietas.
Matthew’s intentions and passion for his work are unparalleled. There is no question of his integrity or sincerity in his mission to help others and he is a conduit for healing.
AN INTIMATE RETREAT
We limit space in every ayahuasca retreat to 14 participants. Keeping the groups small and intimate ensures that we are able to provide everyone with individualized attention and create an atmosphere that feels like family.
We also keep our groups small to ensure that we can manage the energetic container of each ceremony. Our retreats will never exceed 14 participants with a minimum of 4 facilitators: Our ayahuasquero Matthew, who leads the ceremony, along with Jeanae and 2 additional sitters.
We always have one female facilitator to assist the women, while the male facilitator assists the men.
The ayahuasca retreat experience can bring up intense emotions and revelations. This often includes releasing traumas and confronting issues from the past. We want every guest to be able to truly get to know one another, share these intimate moments and forge bonds that will last lifetimes.
