I strongly suggest this to be the only option for participating in ceremonies. Set and setting are extremely important. The facilities and staff are extremely professional with the best personalities. They are some of my favorite people after visiting. The best place for a positive and safe time to enhance all areas of your life. I've never been able to fully relax and overcome anxiety until my visit there. Thank you!

I read many NLA reviews before attending a retreat, and I noticed the word "magical" being used a lot. Well, by the end of the retreat, "magical" was indeed the most fitting description! This was my first experience with ayahuasca, and I can't say enough about the high degree of comfort, well being, and safety I felt. That is all because of Matt and Jeanae, and the safe space they have created for everyone to enjoy. Everything flowed so nicely. The property is absolutely gorgeous with cool mountain breezes and spectacular views. The ceremonies were better than I had imagined - full of wonderful music that could be felt reverberating through my body. The food was amazing, and I came to love and honor all the other guests. We had great conversations, but also I had plenty of alone time, and the most comfortable, private room to enjoy. I could go on and on, but will sum up by stating you won’t go wrong with NLA! Thanks Matt and Jeanae! I hope to visit again soon!

Ayahuasca and the Brain

Here is a great short little video from a scientific standpiont about how ayahuasca effects the brain and can help create new pathways to allow for healing from past events and traumas.

In the video, they explain how as the brain develops, it creates pathways that are associated with certain events. The example they use is if as a child you were attacked by a dog, this event causes trama and emotional distress. These emotions and memories create a pathway that stored and triggered each time you see a dog in the future; or perhaps even just hear a dog barking. Even if the dog is comepletely unfamiliar, there is an automatic fear response as seeing the animal reignites the brain pathway that was formed during the original traumatic event. Ayahuasca activates activity in the brain, allowing new pathways to form and view past events from a different perpective, releasing fear and allowing for healing.
