I will like to express my gratitude to all the people of New Life Ayahusca. I when to a ceremony with Matt and Jeanae last Saturday and I am very impress with their heart and everything they did in the ceremony. Not only they were checking on me all the time but also they are people with a genuine purpose of helping others to get heal. The ceremony had everything; the setting was perfectly care for. I want to congratulate them for running such of wonderful place. I would recommend it to anyone. I also like to send a special thanks to Sergio and Emanuel for always checking on me and for helping me throughout the ceremony. I will be coming back for more ceremonies with the confidence that I am on a safe environment. I wish you many blessings, success and prosperity in the years to come.  Thank you so much for everything!

Wonderful people and a wonderful vision

Ayahuasca Retreat Reviews
★★★★★
New Life is located outside Sam Ramon, Costa Rica. The property and facility is absolutely gorgeous and and view of the Gulf of Nicoya from their location on top of the mountain make this a beautiful and perfect place for the work they are doing.  I was passing through the area coming from San Jose to Playa Samara and just had to stop in and meet the people there and find out what they were doing. San Ramon is only a couple of hours from San Jose, less if you have a car and a little more if using the bus system.  My background is not only corporate I.T. (stressful) but also I am a RYT Yoga Teacher and I've been interested for a number of years in how things such as yoga, meditation, diet, mentors, and support systems help with our first world high stress jobs.  Jeanae and Matt are wonderful people. They have such a strong sense of purpose, a mission, and empathy. Where they come from and where they are going is wonderful and they are making the world better in a very great way. They only want to share and help other people. They know the value of moments that can turn a life around and understand sometimes it takes a great deal of work to help a person get just one step further to being better, happier, or perhaps even just alive.  The facility is as clean and full of creature comforts anyone might want or need. No matter where you come from rich or poor, first world or jungle, this place is comfortable. The region is mountainous with dirt roads leading to it as it should be for the region. The house, the pool area (yes, indoor lap pool in Costa Rica) and the location are really just perfect for a retreat location.  I can only imagine all the clients coming from a wide range of cultures and countries, with needs stemming from depression and stress to drug or substance abuse that may find this place and the people there to be a very important part of their journey to wellness.

6 BENEFITS OF AYAHUASCA

1. Spiritual Connections –

spiritual benefits of ayahuascaAyahuasca, called ‘the spirit vine’ or ‘vine of the souls’ has its roots in the spiritual realm. It is not just a brew of a mixture of plants, it is said to have its own individual spirit, the spirit of the mother. The feminine and nurturing spirit of ayahuasca works in unique ways, but a message that is frequently taught is that she is not the exception. Meaning, it is not only ayahuasca that has this palpable spirit, but all things in this world and this universe have spirits, and those spirits are all interconnected and effected by each other. She teaches us that we, as humans, are spiritual beings and that we are so much more that we appear in our physical 3-dimensional world. Some users have reported communicating with her directly and being passed information through the spiritual realm, or communicating with ancestors. Ayahuasca is a tool that allows us access and reconnect to ourselves in spiritual form, as well as to respect and appreciate the spiritual connection of all life.

2. Emotional and Mental Health –

mental benefits of ayahuascaAyahuasca teaches us many things, and probably one of the most profound of her lessons is self-acceptance. The ego can be a powerful thing, and in the world today we are consistently taught through news and media that we need certain things or to look a certain way to find happiness. Ayahuasca shatters that illusion. She shows us that it only ever was an illusion, an idea that could never be attained because the key to true happiness lies within all of us, we just have to be open to let it in. She teaches us to accept and understand that we, as humans, are both perfect and flawed at the same time and the importance of accepting ourselves for all we have been and all we will be. Recognizing and truly embracing what makes us unique and beautiful is part of the journey to self-love. Studies support the theory that ayahuasca users have a greater interest in improving their spiritual health. Once we see the truth through ayahuasca, so much stress, guilt, shame and depression easily slip away and we are left with a clean slate to build whatever life we wish to live.

3. Physical Health –

Through the spiritual realm of ayahuasca, we recognize that we are spiritual beings but that our physical bodies act as a host for our spirit the entirety of our physical lives in this 3-dimensional world. Through this realization, it makes it easy for most to recognize the importance of keeping our bodies healthy and cared for. For some, in this world of GMO and fast food consumerism, it may mean making drastic changes to current habits to strive for improved physical health. For others, it may mean recognizing the connection of body and spirit and making slight changes in routine to honor and respect both. There have been reports of ayahuasca being effective in treating cancer and new research has also shown ayahuasca could be a valuable treatment for diabetics by promoting beta cell re-growth.

4. Letting go of the Past/ Acceptance of the Present –

Ayahuasca teaches us that all time is an illusion. The only thing that actually exists is the current moment we are experiencing and what we do with that moment. Do we waste it by contemplating, even obsessing, over moments that have past? Do we squander appreciation for what we have, our current abilities, by being consumed with the past/future? Through ayahuasca, we see the truth that the past can be learned from but should not be lived in. Ayahuasca also lets us view certain events from the past either from a perspective of non-judgement, or through complete feeling, and then lets it go. She shows us that holding on to things from the past does not benefit us in the present moment and thus we must let them go. Though it may not happen immediately, we learn that if we actively pay attention and appreciate the present, our lives can be more realized.

5. Death of Ego –

egodeathMerriam-Webster defines the ego as ‘the opinion that you have about yourself’. Ayahuasca facilitates the death of the ego – the death of the opinion you have about yourself. The death of these opinions opens the door for an un-adulterated reflection on who you are as an individual, who we are as humans, and what we are capable of becoming. It allows you to see yourself in a way that was never before possible, a way without sentiment or judgement that allows you to see your true self. It is the seeing of your true self, without the influence of biased or preconceived ideas, that allows you to fully appreciate you for exactly you, nothing more or less. There are many personal accounts detailing this phenomena. This ego-death and the realizations that follow can dramatically reinforce self-acceptance and love.

6. For Depression, PTSD and Addiction –

Arguably some of the most prominent diseases (defined here as ‘a problem that a person, group, organization, or society has and cannot stop’ -Meriam-Webster) facing society today are depression, addiction and PTSD. Often, they go hand in hand, each disorder fueling the other, often making it a dangerous and difficult cycle to escape from. Many who suffer from depression or PTSD turn to substance abuse to ease the pain of their suffering, just to enter a world of a whole new kind of suffering. Many personal accounts from veterans credit ayahuasca for alleviating their PTSD. Modern medicine doesn’t currently have a way to treat the actual disorders, so they try to alleviate some of the symptoms produced by the disorder with medications. However, this can often lead to unfortunate over-medication and a dulling of natural abilities to feel emotions, both good and bad. The way ayahuasca excels in the treatment of these disorders, is by addressing the root causes by altering the perception of an individuals current situation. All the above mentioned benefits combine to create a method of therapy that is effective and lasting for most in the alleviation of depression, PTSD and addiction.
