Life Changing

I decided to wait a while after returning from the retreat before writing the review so as to give a more balanced perspective. I would highly recommend this retreat. From initial booking until we left, the team at New Life have been like family. No pretense, no inauthentic vibes, just plain love and realness. My stay was great, I was in room #3 I think... with a great view. I had my own bathroom and privacy to soak in everything after the ceremony. My group was like family. From the time we met at the airport (thanks for arranging the taxi) until the time we came back, we became like a family. The ceremonies were intimate but not overwhelmingly so. Matt really puts his all into it. The food was delicious, I keep telling Jeanae to come up with a cookbook and Wes was great with the fruit platter display. The entire team is very knowledgeable , open, understanding and I felt no weird vibes at all from them. The massage and yoga were great as well. I stayed for 5 days but I will be back, hopefully once a year. I enjoyed my time. Matt, Jeanae and Wes thank you so much for a life changing experience. I'm still feeling the effects and I hope it remains...

Phenomenal Experience!

I strongly suggest this to be the only option for participating in ceremonies. Set and setting are extremely important. The facilities and staff are extremely professional with the best personalities. They are some of my favorite people after visiting. The best place for a positive and safe time to enhance all areas of your life. I've never been able to fully relax and overcome anxiety until my visit there. Thank you!

Director

jeanae2Jeanae is one of our founders and directors. She handles our website and social media accounts. Jeanae replies to all inquiries/e-mails and is always available to answer questions. She is involved during retreats acting as our yoga instructor, Kambo practitioner and ceremonial assistant.

Jeanae grew up in the Chicago suburbs. She worked in the food/beverage industry until her 5 year long addiction to heroin led her to seek treatment with ibogaine in Costa Rica. Following her ibogaine treatment, she decided to stay and live in Costa Rica, and began participating regularly in ayahuasca ceremonies.  The truly profound changes she experienced after ayahuasca are what she credits for the changes she made in her life and her continued sobriety.
