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.

Down to earth while out of this world

Matt and Janae were amazing hosts. Very warm and genuine without being over the top. Matt is an awesome guide who continues to master his craft. Setting and scenery were amazing. And I couldn't forget to mention Jake and Andy who were icing on the cake. I'm sure we'll be seeing each other again.

Thanks you for this experience

The most beautiful and useful experience I’ve done for myself. I will definitely return for all the beautiful things: the space, the hosts and the outcome. Janae & Matt are amazing persons and always there for you when you need them. See you soon new life!

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 never serve the same meal twice and add variety and flavor into each one.  All dishes are healthy and balanced. All meals are vegan with chicken optional on the side.

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. All the fruit/ vegetables we serve are organic and locally sourced from the farmers market.
