Eternally Grateful

I write this review with the utmost amazement, gratitude, and love in my heart for Jennae, Matt, and their two helpers Jake and Andy. What you do for others, and for yourselves, has moved me to tears many times since meeting you at New Life Ayahuasca. I am eternally grateful to each of you for making my experience unforgettable. Like most first-timers, I was nervous yet excited to drink Ayahuasca. I had been battling severe anxiety and hypochondria for months, and I was no longer OK with having my day run by such viruses of the mind. I had done enough psychedelics in the past, as well as research, and felt as though I experienced a gravitational pull to Ayahuasca during the several months leading up to my arrival at New Life. By my side for this adventure, like many other adventures, was my (now fiance who I proposed to at the retreat) Kat. I felt ready. We all later joked about how fairly easy it was to spot the others in the group at the airport based on clothing, mannerisms, and reading material. Once we met, the conversation flowed. I think we were all surprised with how open and transparent everyone was about why they had chosen to travel to Costa Rica to drink the mother’s milk. I couldn’t have been happier with the character, humor, sincerity, intelligence, and introspectiveness that prevailed throughout the group. When we all arrived at the actual property, we were all completely awestruck. Jennae and Matt gave us a tour around the house that sits atop a hill overlooking the mountains and ocean. It was absolutely stunning. Everything about the house was comfortable. The actual ceremony was beautiful, and the amount of care, attention to detail, passion, and love that went into it was incredible. We couldn’t say enough about Matt, the leader (or chaman) of the ceremony. He puts his heart and soul into each session, and how exhausted and spent he appeared each night was a testament to that effort. His singing was other-worldly, his guitar-playing inspirational, and his presence was very comforting. Throughout the week, we ate like royalty. The food, compliments of Andy, was gangbusters! Absolutely top-notch! Kat and I stuck strictly to the diet (la dieta) for 10 days prior to our trip, and didn’t cook nearly as well as Andy did for us. It made the experience even more enjoyable. We had access to the humungous pool, a yoga gym, a wealth of reading material, the most entertaining cats, WIFI, and plenty of land to traverse and explore. They even took us to a gorgeous beach the day after our first ceremony. Kambo (the poison from a tree frog) was another experience that was offered to us. It is a very intense yet rewarding ceremony during which Jennae administers a small amount of the neurotoxin to your left arm. A few seconds later and the effects begin. It is a challenging experience but highly worth it, as it is common to feel a higher level of mental clarity, less inflammation, and happier overall. During the kambo ceremony, Jennae is very informative, caring, and as calming as she is during the Ayahuasca ceremony. Overall, my experience was 10 / 10. Jennae and Matt run a very professional and comfortable retreat that I would recommend to anyone. Drinking Ayahuasca can be hard work, and for me, having Jennae, Jake, and Andy as caretakers (for when you can’t find your bucket in the dark haha), and Matt, who was like a real-life Gandalf guiding us through the spirit world, made this experience unforgettable. This life we live is an adventure, and drinking Ayahuasca at New Life just amplified it for me. If I was to drink Ayahuasca again, I wouldn’t think twice about returning to New Life.

Massage Therapy

MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy is the manipulation of the body with pressure for healing. Massage therapy relieves pain, tension and reduces anxiety and depression; making massage therapy an extremely beneficial addition to any healing or recovery process.  New Life Ayahuasca ’s focus is  to promote healing and personal growth during your retreat with us. One complimentary massage is provided to all of our guests.

BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY

After an ayahuasca experience, there is a lot to process. Massage offers an excellent opportunity to reflect in a tranquil, relaxing and non-verbal environment. Massage therapy not only reduces stress but increases positive feelings and helps people tap into the intelligence of their body and become more self-aware. Because of this, regular massage allows to you interpret your body’s stress and act before that stress manifests as physical pain or becomes problematic.  Massage therapy loosens muscles and stimulates blood flow, releases feel good endorphins and manually drains the lymphatic system, the primary waste management system.
