Profound Experience

★★★★★
5 5 1
It's very difficult to describe what an amazing experience this was. Matt and Jeanae make you feel right at home upon arrival to their beautiful property. The rooms are amazing and very comfortable, and the view from the back porch every morning is breathtaking. Overall just a very positive energy surrounds this place and I instantly fell in love with it.. The ceremonies are unbelievably astonishing. Matt guides you through this intense experience with absolutely amazing Icaros, Gong, Drum, and Guitar. He becomes one with this medicine during ceremony, and it left me speechless. You can tell he puts 100% of his energy and passion into this, and I hold the upmost respect for him. Jeanae also plays the most beautiful sounding flute I've ever heard, and her presence during the ceremony is very soothing. Matt and Jeanae are very genuine and sincere people and I'm very grateful for what they have done for me. I cannot wait to go back!...Oh and Chopper is the coolest cat you will ever meet!

Perfect First Retreat

After nearly a year of research, I chose New Life Ayahuasca for my first retreat. After looking at the website and photos for so long, it was amazing to finally arrive. The location was beautiful, with clean and comfortable accomodations and Jeanae prepared tasty meals. She and Matt were very open and informative. My boyfriend and I went together and we were able to be alone or interact without feeling pressured. The ceremonies were safe and intense. Matt and Jeanae are incredibly genuine individuals doing amazing things at New Life! Thanks for everything, we will be back! -Casey (& Sean)

I'm struggling to find appropriate words to describe the experience and the respect I have for Matt and Jeanae. I really want to go back and work with the medicine again. If you decide to go there make sure you pet chopper for me :) I'm still giggling when thinking about this cat, he stopped by at the end of each ceremony and welcomed me back to reality.

Ayahuasca Retreat

MEALS

The ayahuasca diet is an important part of ayahuasca retreats, both physically and spiritually.. The diet is not just about avoiding certain foods, but is about discipline, sacrifice, commitment and respect to the process of experiencing the sacred teacher ayahuasca; and while our meals respect that traditions,  they do not have to be bland, boring, or monotonous.

New Life Ayahuasca wants to keep our ayahuasca meals unique and exciting while still and healthy and delicious.  Sometimes, the ayahuasca diet can become repetitive with the same menu every night, so we try to avoid serving the same foods and add variety and flavor into each one.  All dishes are healthy and balanced. Vegetarian is available upon request.

At NLA, all ayahuasca meals we provide are smart and healthy. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily; however, dinner is skipped on evenings with scheduled ayahuasca ceremonies.  At all times, a variety of fresh fruits are available individually or as juices/smoothies. All the fruit/ vegetables we serve are organic and locally sourced from the farmers market. We are in the process of creating our own garden and will keep you updated on our progress here.
