My wife and I recently had the pleasure of spending five days with Matt and Jeanae at New Life Ayahuasca. This was our first experience with ayahuasca. In my opinion, I couldn't have found a better place to experience our first set of ayahuasca journeys. Matt is a great shaman that guided me through one of the most meaningful introspective journeys of my life. This is a memory that I will always cherish and I owe him and his wife my thanks. Additionally, I was fortunate to go through this journey with a small group of other people also attending. My wife and I formed strong bonds with these people as we went through our own personal journeys as a group. It was great to be able to reflect on what we each learned through the rituals and to support each other. I look forward to returning to NLA when the time is right.

Best Healing Experience Ever

I hardly know where to start … Everything about my trip to New Life Iboga / Ayahuasca in Costa Rica was wonderful from the medicines, the location/property, the hosts, the food, the cats, it was all amazing! Jeanae and Matt are phenomenal hosts and wonderful cooks. The house was large, clean, and had great views. The room they provided to me was perfect for my two weeks stay. The food was great - I’m a foodie – and I loved all the fresh, healthy home cooked meals they made! The trails around the property had beautiful views and I was able to see beautiful wildlife like the Blue Morpho Cota Rican butterfly and monkeys! For several years I had contemplated participating in taking iboga for spiritual healing reasons. This past year my life brought some major life challenges that propelled me forward in taking the leap to try both iboga and ayahuasca – and I also had Kamboo to make it a trifecta of healing medicines! And Oh Boy - I am so glad that I did! It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! The journey changed my life and continues to positively change my life. I had researched several centers to visit, but I am so glad I decided to go down this journey at New Life Iboga /Ayahuasca. I hope to one day return and participate in more Ayahuasca ceremonies! I know one day I will re-enter the Ayahuasca world again! Going through the Ayahuasca in the first week really helped strip away my ego and open me up to heal on a deeper level. Some of my questions were answered through Ayahuasca, but Iboga showed me some deep-rooted parts of myself that needed to be addressed. Jeanae and Matt helped facilitate the interpretation of my visions and experiences by having me work with therapist Brian Murphy. Brian was great and very insightful. I am very grateful for this to be part of the experience. The ceremonies that Jeanae and Matt conducted were great. They both played instruments and put their heart and soul into the experience. For the Iboga ceremony they had a small community of friends that participated which enrichened the experience. After going through this journey, and returning to the states, I had the most amazing sense and feeling of peace that I have never had before. It has taken work to continue this sense of peace, but now I know it - so it is easier to return to this peace. A million Thank Yous to Jeanae and Matt for all that you did for me and continue to do for others! You are truly a blessing to this earth! One of the visions I had during iboga was seeing Jeanae and Matt being given to the earth as gifts from the gods! Thank you again for everything! I pray that all the good you are doing comes back to you a million fold. And I pray all your wishes and dreams will come true – I know they will:) Much love and blessings to you:)

First of all, I am grateful that Jeanae and Matt made New Life Ayahuasca available for us! The property is absolutely beautiful. The layout and design are perfect for the purpose in my point of view. I was brought there by intuition and curiosity in September. I felt “home” the moment I arrived. Jeanae is not only a good cook but also an excellent yoga teacher. Both of Jeanae and Matt are very caring and supportive. Secondly, the ceremony was conducted in a very safe and comfortable room. Shaman Ron conducted the ceremony that week and he seemed to be doing what he was born to do. It was very powerful. But I have no doubt that Matt will do an excellent job as well. My experiences during the ceremonies were fun and very interesting. Last but not the least, I met a group of beautiful souls during the retreat. I appreciated and enjoyed sharing time with them. Everyone is fantastic and unique. It’s truly a blessing that they co-created that memory with me. I’ll forever thank you - my aya brothers - for the amazing experience. All in all, yes, new life Ayahuasca is definitely a place that I’d highly recommend if you are called by mother ayahuasca.
