From a First-Timer

I went to New Life Ayahuasca having never traveled internationally by myself, didn’t know a single person and had never done any type of plant medicines. The entire experience was life changing! From the second I arrived, I felt my fears melt away. Matt and Jeanae welcomed all of us when we arrived and made us feel right at home. The house was amazing! It’s in a beautiful location, surrounded by nature. I saw monkeys, parrots and some other animals I didn’t even know existed. You get your own room and your own bathroom. This is perfect if you need a little alone time. Most of the other places don’t offer that and the ones that do, are expensive. The food was nutritious and really good. The ceremonies were beautiful, and they are held in a safe environment. Matt helped me prepare for the ceremonies and I felt like he really cared about helping and listening to me. That’s a big deal when you’re doing something that you’ve never done before. We got to do yoga with Jeanae, who is a wonderful teacher. I met some amazing people at New Life and I felt like we all connected. Everyone was so friendly and they were easy to talk to. The groups are a little smaller which in my opinion, is the way to go. Having experienced all that I did, I would have felt very overwhelmed if I was at a retreat with 10 +. I won’t speak much about the medicine because each experience is different for each person. My experience is hard to put into words. It’s been about a month and I’m discovering new things about life and myself every day. That may sound cliche, but it’s so true. I’m not the same person I was when I arrived, and I mean that in a good way. Going to New Life Ayahuasca was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. My intuition guided me here and now I understand why. I highly recommend this place! I’ll be back for sure. Thank you Matt & Jeanae!

One of the most deep and profound experiences of my life. Matt is the real deal and an amazing healer. Jeanne is his perfect counterpart. From their delicious, farm to table, nutritious meals to their multiple plant medicine healing modalities, and amazing icaros, they work to massage away any emotional or physical difficulties that might be ailing you. They do so in such a grounded and wholesome way. The love and warmth is palpable. I left brighter, happier and more connected to nature and the cosmos.

Follow-Up Review

This is my second review of New Life Ayahuasca. NLA is a wonderful and at times a magical place. Those of you who have never taken the medicine might roll your eyes at my use of the term ‘magical’. That’s OK, just try it and see. Matt and Jeanae have created a safe and caring environment in which one can grow. For those who hear the call of Ayahuasca, the medicine can bring about amazing personal transformations. I am not the same man who first went to New Life a year and a half ago. Then, I was a damaged man who was haunted by a a rough childhood. I was prone to depression and quick to take offense. While I was good at my job, I wasn’t well liked because of my quick temper. Now, after three retreats, I am a changed man. My baseline is ‘happy’ and I nearly always feel content, which is not something most people can say these days. I am much less into myself and I care more about others, especially my family. I am less combative, more creative, and have an easier time seeing other people’s points of view. I feel lucky to be me and I feel gratitude every day. As a result, people like me much more which, of course makes me happier. It is a virtuous cycle. On an objective level, my EQ score has improved dramatically. Of course, this is just my experience. I cannot know what Ayahuasca will do for you. For me, though, it has changed my life – dramatically – and for the better.

Stepping into our center

Ayahuasca retreats can be beneficial for all people. Regardless of an individuals background or history of spiritual/religious beliefs, an ayahuasca experience 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 desire to have an experience that can enhance spirituality and awareness of life and all that surrounds us.

 

Matthew Mormello, our founder and owner, leads all of our ayahuasca retreat ceremonies. Matt has been involved with plant medicine since 2010, first working with iboga(ine) in New York and Costa Rica. Over the last 2 years he has transitioned his focus from ibogaine therapy to ayahuasca retreats. He has participated in hundreds of ceremonies and has evolved into a strong and compassionate ceremonial facilitator. He strives to create a safe healing environment for all our participants. More Info

Private Rooms

Ayahuasca Retreats in Costa Rica can change your perception of life and all that exists. Many users report a renewed vigor for life and appreciation for nature and the ways in which all things are connected. In recent years, use of ayahuasca has been researched for treating depression, anxiety, PTSD and addiction because of the ways it can alter perceptions of reality. This shift in perception allows for the opportunity of reflecting on past experiences/traumas/histories in a different light and from a place of peace.

The ayahuasca retreat at New Life Ayahuasca is not your typical jungle ayahuasca experience. Our beautiful facility offers a comfortable environment for such an intense process.  All guest rooms are private with their own attached full bathroom. We have WiFi (although we encourage guests to disconnect prior to ceremonies), a large indoor pool, hot tub and 20 beautiful acres to explore. All meals are home cooked by Jeanae and follow the ayahuasca diet.

To maximize healing during your ayahuasca retreat Costa Rica, we offer a variety of therapies including KamboYoga and massage. One free massage session is included in the retreat package. We hope these additional therapies will make your retreat a powerful healing experience.

Our facility in San Ramon is a little over an hour from the airport. We provide complimentary pick up from SJO International Airport between 11am-1pm on the start day of each retreat. The cost of return transportation is the responsibility of the guest, however, we are happy to arrange for cabs to to the airport or bus station. We limit our ayahuasca retreat to 8 guests per week so we can provide individualized attention and support.
