I don't hesitate in recommending New Life, and Matt and Jeanae. I couldn't have asked for a better (first) experience. The views are incredible, house and rooms really comfortable, food fantastic and I always felt welcome and safe. Matt and Jeanae are impressive, friendly, kind and dedicated people. I can't comment on the experience you'll have with the medicine itself, as it is always different, but you will be safe, secure, and in expert, caring hands at all times. Plus Jeanae's yoga classes are excellent, and exactly what I needed! My journey is just beginning - and I hope to be back. A big thank you to Matt and Jeanae.

Amazing retreat

This was an amazing experience and I wished I did it 10 years ago. I was super hesitant and didn't believe a place and experience could have so many 5 stars reviews. So if your reading this just dive it and sign up your already wasting time. To help you out heres my detailed review: Site - This is a fastastic location only 90 minutes from the airport. It has beautiful views of the the surrounding mountains and ocean. It is very spacious and everyone has a private room with bathroom. Everything was very clean and welcoming. Hosts - Both Matt and Jeanae are down to earth wholesome people. From the moment you arrive they are there to make you feel comfortable, safe, and at home. They are super easy to talk to and take away the hype surrounding the experience and help you understand exactly what you are hoping into and what to expect. For me, they made it the perfect setting for a new experience. Experience - There is already a lot on the site about the experiences and definitely more on youtube. Being a cynic I assumed that all of these mind blowing reviews were from people who never did psychedelics before. I was wrong. While I am very experienced this was a completely new experience for me. Despite being a psychedelic veteran I was extremely anxious as I took the first sip of medicine. The only similarity to other trips was the build, peak, and trailing off. My experience was one of love, healing, and cleaning and I felt like I was in a massive embrace ridding me of all of the toxic frustration and anger that has built up over the last 20 years. I feel light as a feather and I took it over 2 weeks ago now. Keep in mind that everyone's experience is very different and that you might trip hard the first time, take 2x the second time and feel nothing. Aya is a very peculiar medicine. I think I can best sum it up as it may not give you what you want but it will give you what you need. So follow the diet, clear your mind, head on down and open your eyes. Matt exceeded all of my expectations as a shaman and Jeanae was a perfect sitter and I felt totally safe the whole time. Next Steps - Aya will open your eyes but it is only the first step. You will have to take the rest to get to be where you want to be. It is a very powerful first step and I have seen the results first hand with my partner and my friends. I believe it should be a right of passage as you get older and stuck in your ways and routine. I'll be back and look forward to my next journey. If you read this far just book it. Good luck!
