Words will never do justice to what I experienced here. Our group, Matt and Jeanae, other people around the house who swinged by, the cats and the whole land there was soul awakening. Mother nature is beyond powerful. She's eternal and beautiful and if you allow yourself to truly let go, you will meet our Great Mother Spirit. Thankful.

So amazing!!

I had been looking into ayahuasca retreats for quite some time prior to booking this trip. When i found new life i was intrigued by the small group size as well as the private room and large property. I was very happy to discover the rooms were spread out, very clean, had new mattresses and private bathrooms. The layout of the facility, as well as the way the week is planned allows for a lot of privacy and personal time, if you desire it. The food is delicious! Jeanae makes everything fresh and is very accommodating to specific diet restrictions. For me, they were the perfect hosts. Approachable, but not intrusive. Matt is very gifted in his craft. I came to deal with issues I had been carrying for decades and feel as though i received everything i asked for and more. The easiest way to explain it is i feel as though someone hit the reset button on my life. New life is such a fitting name for this beautiful place, because for me that is exactly what it gave me. Thank you, to both of you for doing what you do for others. I will never forget this experience and am forever grateful.

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.
