Review for Ayahuasca Healings Church
Sarah C Robertson February 09, 2016
This group needs a DEA permit to be legal in USA. They don't have one. So even if religious freedom eventually helped them, that would be after arrests, prosecutions, court battles. This is a manipulative money making business.
Review for ONEWORLD retreats
Ali Van Der Graaf February 09, 2016
These retreats never fail to deliver a nurturing and uplifting experience. The setting, the staff and retreat leaders, the amazing resorative spa treatments combine to provide heaven on earth. An opportunity to reset the compass, hold the mirror up and honour body and soul. Go seek and experience beautiful Bali away from the hustle.
Review for Naomi Athena
Anne-Lotta Schubert February 08, 2016
There is a very fine and beautiful quality to Naomi's work as a medicine woman and healer. She is brave, strong and bold and touched me so much with her ability to connect with me on a very transcendent, deep level. With her I was able to finally work on and face some of my rather deep rooted issues - so much so that I was able to move on, change and step towards the light. Experiencing her working with song and touch is such a special beautiful treat and resonated with my body and soul for a long time.I found true inspiration in her work with me and would highly recommend Naomi to anyone who is seeking true healing, being rooted and enlightenment.
Review for Dreamglade
Elizabeth Sterling February 08, 2016
I spent five nights at Dreamglade last month, and am already planning my return trip. The setting, aptly named Dreamglade, is the definition of tranquility, with a large maloka and private tambos surrounding a lake. The constant hum of the jungle underlies it all. There is a fairy tale like ambience that leaves you feeling like you’ve stepped into the pages of a jungle storybook. You can see right away that a lot of heart and soul was poured into the making of Dreamglade, and the owner, Stace, is continuing his vision by the current additions that are in place. To come- a yoga center and music/entertainment space for guests. Another thing I loved about Dreamglade was the intimate, family-like atmosphere, with a small enough number of staff to get to know them, and not too large of a guest group. I happen to be a huge animal lover and was thrilled to meet the resident cats and dogs. The dogs, Ella and Mo, will happily be your hiking companions.The kids of the staff members interacted with our group a lot, which added to the family atmosphere. I unexpectedly had the first spiritual experience of my life at Dreamglade, and got so much more than I had dared to hope for when planning the trip. I believe this was due to the comfort I felt immediately with the setting and with Stace, Drew-the Retreat Assistant, and Estella and Robbie-the curandero and her partner. Stace and Drew are easy to relate to and both bring valuable gifts to their work. Stace is upfront and down to earth, with a way of setting you at ease by patiently explaining what will likely take place during ceremonies, giving you tools you might need if/when your experience gets really intense. He has a knack for picking out and reflecting on the most relevant aspects of people’s experiences during the group processing the next morning, asking you just the right questions to deepen your own understanding of your visions. Drew has an incredibly peaceful presence and is an ideal person to have around during an experience as intense and that leaves you as vulnerable as ayahuasca. Both are also fun to talk to outside of the ceremonies, and seem like interesting people who have chosen a road that is not well-traveled by coming to Peru and devoting themselves to the healing of strangers. Both are unmistakably in their element, and their authenticity shines through to Dreamglade’s guests and creates the safety needed to go deeper and deeper during each ceremony. It is clear that they both genuinely care about the comfort and happiness of their guests. I appreciated their hands-off approaches towards the guests by not having structured activities during the days and enjoyed the down time between ceremonies to reflect and get insight on the visions and feelings brought up during the nights. Estella’s powerful and sometimes melancholy voice still haunts me at times. Her partner, Robbie, sang during our ceremonies and I appreciated the contrast of having both of them. Estella radiates quiet strength and I am still in awe at the magnitude of what she does during each ceremony. I feel so lucky to have found Dreamglade and can’t imagine ever going anywhere else to do an ayahuasca ceremony!
