All ayahuasca brew provided by New Life Ayahuasca is prepared by a well known and reputable ayahuasca shaman in Iquitos, Peru using b. caapi and chaliponga. All ingredients for the brew are grown on the shaman’s farm and selected for the brew based on the maturity of the plants. No datura (toe) is used in our brew. It is extremely important to know the quality of the plants and the intentions behind the person who creates the brew. Our mission is always to provide the best and safest ceremonies possible.Our Brew
To be sure all potential guests can safely participate in ayahuasca ceremonies, New Life Ayahuasca conducts a brief medical screening before accepting any participants for an ayahuasca retreat. While ayahuasca is primarily considered safe, ayahuasca brew contains MAOIs, which could cause negative interactions when combined with certain medications, so it is extremely important to disclose any medications you may be taking prior to booking a retreat. We provide all meals in accordance with the ayahuasca diet. If you have any questions please get in touch.Ayahuasca Safety
We understand and respect the power of all plant medicines. New Life Ayahuasca founders, Matt and Jeanae, first began their work in Costa Rica with iboga through our sister program at New Life Iboga. We continue to offer ibogaine therapy for psycho-spiritual growth in a joint 2 week program featuring ibogaine and ayahuasca. We have found that participation in both ayahuasca ceremonies and ibogaine therapy can have profoundly beneficial results. Ayahuasca and Iboga are vastly different in both their ceremonies and effects. Find out more.Iboga Vs. Ayahuasca
Kambo, also called Sapo or ‘frog poison’, is a natural non-psychedelic medicine made from the secretions of the Giant Monkey Tree Frog from the Amazon and is used to treat a variety of ailments. Optional Kambo sessions are available at our center as an add on therapy for $50 It is a great additional cleansing process during an ayahuasca retreat. The connection between Kambo and Ayahuasca is special – being that the spirit of ayahuasca is what, according to legend, brought about the knowledge of Kambo use and its incredible benefits.Kambo Info
