      This Is The Place

    When I was searching for an Ayahuasca Retreat, Nada Brahma stood out first, because the stories of Carlos and Jessica (on their website) were genuine and real. I could tell from their words that they wanted to help others heal they way they had healed their own lives. Still, I had no idea what the environment would be like, how many people would actually be there, sleeping arrangements, etc. As soon as we arrived on the grounds and Carlos met us, I immediately felt at ease. His warm, friendly demeanor stood out, but after he shared his story, I was even more amazed with both he and Jessica, and their commitment to helping others. The grounds are beautiful and everything was so well planned. Our bungalow accommodations were comfortable; we each were provided a locker with plenty of room for our things. The showers are spacious and clean, our Tea/Water Station was always stocked. There are hammocks for relaxing during our long conversations. Jessica is very organized, professional, and attentive. She will arrange all of the transfers from the airport and give you any tips you might need. With the help of their staff, we were well fed (delicious, fresh fruits every day) and any special requests/dietary needs were met. I tried some foods I had never had before and will try to use the recipes Jessica sent us. Carlos had 2 assistants who helped with ceremonies and music, setting up, cleaning up after us, helping us integrate our experiences and share their own personal experiences. They are all beautiful people with the right intentions of giving you the best plant medicine that you deserve. They will be with you as much as you need them. I was so very happy I chose Nada Brahma Healing Center. The 8 of us women became fast friends. I could not imagine being at a place with dozens of people during a ceremony. We had everything we needed and asked for, and my Ayahuasca experience surpassed anything I could EVER have imagined. Thank you Carlos, Jessica, Alex, Hiro, the ladies, the kids, and Ruff (our mascot!).

      The Most Powerful Experience of My Life

    Words will not do justice in adequately describing just how amazing of an experience I had during my week long retreat. I researched for hours to find the 'right' retreat, and I am so glad I chose Nada Brahma. I was incredibly nervous and anxious before taking the medicine, but the love and support of Carlos, Alex, Harold, and Jessica made me feel safe and cared for every moment. Food: The food was amazing!! From the most delicious fruit every day to incredible vegan recipes, the food was always yummy and plentiful. Jessica also went out of her to accommodate dietary restrictions and even surprised me with buying my favorite Central American fruit! Accomodations: The guest house is beautiful and was a great place to relax after long days. Our group became like sisters, and it was nice to have everyone staying close together. The rooms were cleaned daily and little touches like fresh flowers in the rooms were very much appreciated! Medicine/ceremonies: Despite initial nerves, I felt so safe with Carlos leading the way. He always seemed to know exactly what to say and do to make me feel better. I came to love and appreciate the beauty of each medicine throughout the week as I went deeper into myself. Choosing Nada Brahma and choosing to invest in myself was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Having the chance to unplug, lose track of time, surrender to the experience, and do the hard work necessary to heal, enabled me to have a transformative experience. I am already looking forward to my next retreat! I am forever thankful to Jessica, Carlos, your beautiful children, Alex, Harold, and Ruff. You will forever have a place in my heart!

      Deep and amazing experience

    Finding the Nada Brama Healing Center was truly a gift, one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I always felt very safe and taken care of. Carlos always knew what to say to me to make me feel better. His words were very comforting and somehow, it was exactly what I needed to hear to feel more confident. During the ceremonies, Carlos, Alex and Harold were very caring and they were always there if I needed support. They have so much knowledge to share. Jessicas food was amazing! She is such a wonderful woman, always very helpful and sharing her own experiences. After a few days, I found myself going with the flow, nowhere to rush to, no time, enjoying the nature around... And enjoying the amazing experiences I had, truly life changing to me. I highly recommend Nada Brama Healing Center, the best decision I could have taken. I'll return for sure!

      One of a Kind

    It's the amazing people and spirit behind this place that make it truly exceptional. There are lots of spiritual resorts out there, with a host of activities on the menu to be had: If that is what you want, it would be best to seek it elsewhere. If however you are ready for a guided process to face your pain head-on and resolve stuck patterns, this may be the next step in your journey. When you are willing to do the hard work involved and open to some incredibly challenging and unpleasant moments, then this center has the potential to completely transform your life from the inside out. You will be exposed to a stunning environment, unplugged from time obsession, and introduced to absolutely delicious vegan food. The focus here is on letting go of past struggles and coming into alignment with who you are in a way that is free of resistance. Be prepared for a life-changing experience. Thank you!

      ¡El viaje de mi vida!

    Han pasado dos meses y un poquito después de mi retiro en Nada Brahma y, cada vez que trato de escribir mi “review”, me parece insuficiente e injusto. Hoy me decidí a hacerlo de una vez por todas porque, aunque me sigue pareciendo una experiencia indescriptible(de lo grandiosa), lo injusto sería no hacerlo, aún cuando las palabras no alcancen siquiera a rozar la superficie de lo que considero ha sido “El viaje de mi vida”. Nada de lo que diga abarcará cuanto de maravilloso tiene este lugar donde conocí ese amor incondicional del que tanto había leído. Nada Brahma es un pequeño edén habitado por ángeles donde se respira naturaleza, amor y paz. Llegar y sentirme como en casa fue el primer milagro. Carlos, Alex y Jessica me acogieron con tal calidez que bastaron unos instantes para disipar los temores y dudas conque uno se enfrenta a lo desconocido. Hospitalidad sincera, sabiduría y entrega, más allá de lo imaginable, parece ser el “motto” de este equipo que, en sólo 8 días, transformó mi existencia y me acompañó y guió a través de un viaje de crecimiento espiritual tan extraordinario como indescriptible. De su mano, descorrí los velos y atravesé todas mis sombras, enfrenté mis miedos, reconocí el amor que soy y constaté la esencia divina que me habita, a mí y a todos. Cada ceremonia obró su milagro. Las plantas maestras, administradas por Carlos y Alex con infinito amor, me mostraron el camino y me devolvieron la confianza en la vida y en el Ser. Sin la ayuda de ellos, no sé qué habría hecho con todas las oscuridades y traumas que me fueron develados. Siento que, el proceso de integración en el que me guiaron, fue tan importante y necesario como la experiencia de la medicina en sí. Hoy respiro amor y paz, camino con paso firme por la vida hacia la luz que me mostraron y tengo una nueva familia allá en San Ramón. Gracias Carlos. Gracias Alex. Gracias Jessica. ¡¡Son lo máximo!! Si alguna vez sintiera el llamado nuevamente, sé a dónde regresar. Los amo.

      Go head and book it!

    I spent 7 days at Nada Brahma Healing Center the first week of May 2018 and it was one of the best choice I have ever made in my life! Location is stunning, you will find yourself very close to nature. You will enjoy Costa Rica’s wildlife just by sitting on their deck drinking a cup of tea. Accommodation, food and ambience were outstanding. Jessica and the all staff took care of me and my needs every day all day. Carlos has a lot of knolodge and experience about the medicine, I felt very safe in every moment of each ceremonies. He supports and advice you step by step. He is right there all the time for a chat, answer your questions and most of all to share his experiences and knowledge with you. I loved that! Alex, a man I would like to see every morning for the rest of my existence. An amazing soul, always smiling and encouraging. About the ceremonies, I was lucky enough to be able to experience Ayuhaska, Rape’, Kambo, Yopo and Temascal (sweat lodge) and I loved all of that! The all week has been an amazing opportunity of personal growing. I felt very connected with my true self and my life more and more every day! I still feel the same! I’m very grateful to have met and shared this wonderful life experience with them and I highly recommend Nada Brama Healing Center to people looking for a true change in their life!! Thank you all! Lots of love! Isabella

      The best experience of my life so far!!!

    I went to Nada Brahma Healing Center at the beginning of May 2018.... I wanted to do ayahuasca for a while, but I could not make up my mind where to go; Peru or Costa Rica. Once I discovered Nada Brahma Healing Center, I KNEW that this was the place for me...I have to say that I do not regret picking this center!! The guys running the place; Carlos, Jessica and Alex, are amazing human (angels) beings. They have so much love, compassion, understanding and time for everyone! The rooms were always very clean, the showers are suitable for everyone, as they are very spacious and easy to access. The food was delicious too!! When you take the medicine, Carlos and Alex have abundance of experience, as well as love and compassion for everyone! You are, and you feel, safe there! Overall, my experience has been life changing, I don't have words to describe my gratitude for what these guys have done for me!! If i ever feel like taking ayahuasca again, this is the place I would go to, without any hesitation!! Thank you Jessica, Carlos & Alex!! Much love to you all!!

      PEACE AND HAPPINESS...

    My husband and I just recently returned from Nada Brahma Healing Center. We experienced our first Plant Medicine (Ayahuasca) along with Kambo, sweat lodge and yoga. First I would like to thank Jessica, Carlos, Alex and all the staff for welcoming us with peace and joy and making us feel right at home. I was nervous at first because I had never been to Costa Rica and didn't know what to expect from the plant medicine. However, Carlos and Jessica made us feel so at peace and safe that by the end of the week we had made several new life time friends. I can not recommend this peaceful, intimate retreat enough and words won't do it justice. Just to wake up in the morning to the sounds of the birds and the jungle was so peaceful I miss it. Jessica puts so much love into her yummy food that I have changed my diet to keep it going. She has sent us all the recipes for the dishes which are easy to prepare, healthy, delicious and filling. Thank you Jessica for that. Carlos and Alex work hand in hand at giving us the best Ayahuasca experience. Carlos was very supportive through the healing sessions we did with the medicine, letting you have your own space and stepping in right when needed. He saw the beauty in life and was able to convey his knowledge with a calm knowing. The waterfalls, sunsets, the beautiful location and the sacred ceremonies will stay with me forever, or until I go back again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone looking to experience plant medicine must go to Nada Brahma Healing Center. Thank you all for giving us the experience of a life time. Love Carol and Emilio.

      Life changing week

    I took part in an Ayahuasca retreat at Nada Brahma last week. I could talk extensively about the beauty of the surrounding nature, the songs of birds, the beautiful smiles and loving care of everyone involved in the center, the delicious food, the comfortable beds and all the details that made my stay exceedingly pleasant and relaxing but, if I had to recommend Nada Brahma to anyone, it would be for the absolute awareness and connection of Carlos and Alex, their profound knowledge of plant medicine and their ability to always do or say the right thing at the right time. Within a very short time I got to the point of trusting them with my own life. My experience greatly exceeded the goals I had set for myself and radically changed my life. My gratitude for the Nada Brahma people is as big as I can experience. Matteo

      Profound Healing Experience

    When I arrived at Nada Brahma Healing Centre on my own, after finding this retreat centre through a google search, I was naturally curious about how safe the space would feel, and what types of people I would meet. From the moment I arrived, it was clear that this was no ordinary place. The small group size allowed for deep conversations, and plenty of space for integration. Carlos leads the ceremonies with deep presence, intuition, respect and love. Aleks brings light to every conversation, and the openness of his joy is a wonder to behold. Jessica creates a warm welcoming space for all, and nourishes guests from the inside and out with beautiful food. Since the retreat, my life has evolved more than I thought possible, and continues to change and grow. I am forever grateful for the opportunity offered at Nada Brahma.

      wonderful healing experience

    I loved being at Nada Brahma Healing Center with Jessica, Carlos and Aleks. Anyone who seeks to dive into the realms of plant medicine and is looking for a safe space to do this, should go to Nada Brahma. I felt so taken care of from the moment of signing up, arriving until the end of my stay. Every wish is was being fulfilled and I felt so welcome, loved and appreciated by everyone. All questions were answered at any time, all worries taken care of and we were spoilt with the most amazing healthy food and outdoor experiences. The waterfalls, sunsets, the beautiful location and the sacred ceremonies touched me deeply. Jessica, Carlos and Aleks are an amazing team. They support everyone individually with their love and undivided presence. I can highly recommed going there. I would do it again anytime :) Thanks to everyone at Nada Brahma Gisela

      coming home into being

    Coming to the 1 week Ayahuasca retreat at the Nada Brahma Healing Center was one of the most deep experiences in my life. I´m meditating since 15 years and also had beautiful experiences - I´ve seen incredible things and miracles performed. But this retreat took me to a place where I really met myself and connected to my essence - it`s so far beyond any words - like coming home into being. Besides from my inner journey, my connection to Ma and the answers she gave me, the way Carlos, Jessica & Alex prepare you and take care of everything around - the physical and emotional needs - it touched my heart and it is a teaching in itself about how to live life as a flow - heart-fully and open and present. Jessica with her beautiful female energy is always there to help and nourish you with whatever you need, and Carlos silence and presence has touched my inner core and that will always stay inside me. He has such a profound knowing about these things, that for the first time I was able to trust someone. And Alex is an example of living life from the heart. I´m grateful forever and I feel this is the best place to do such a retreat!

      Life Changing

    Nada Brahma was better than I could have hoped for. Carlos, Alex and Jessica were perfect. Carlos has integrity, warmth, incredible knowledge and a sense of humor. He was always around when I had a question or needed some kind words. He was able to clear up my confusion by saying just what I needed to hear. Truly, perfection. Jessica takes such good care to make sure we all had enough to eat and drink whilst making it all look effortless. She easily shared her experiences which were comforting. Jessica made me feel cared for and safe, very important when experiencing such profound shifts. Alex was a beautiful addition to the whole experience. He is kind and funny and clear and peaceful. His smile is settling and beatific. He saw the beauty in life and was able to convey his knowledge with a calm knowing. I loved my time at Nada Brahma. I will be back, for sure.

      Life changing experience

    Upon arriving at the Nada Brahma Healing Center, I instantly felt the warm welcome from Carlos and Jessica, this made me feel very comfortable. Carlos was very supportive through the healing sessions we did with the medicine, letting you have your own space and stepping in right when needed. Through the medicine work, I felt I was transcending deep rooted fears causing me to shift my perspective to the positive. The connection I made here was incredible, I felt like I was part of the family! I would highly recommend this incredibly healing experience to anyone! -Ewelina

      Life Changing

    It's now a few mounths since I spontaniously ended up at Nada Brahma to meet Carlos Jessica and Alex. If I were to explain this experience with one word it would be life changing. I have left my past and my fears behind and my future is now in the hands of the univers. I am going back again soon to learn even more about my true self.

      8 Days Ayahuasca Retreat

    I spent 8 days at Nada Brahma Healing Center to experience the healing power of plants medicines with Carlos, Alex and Jessica. I consider it as the most profound experience that I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE! You get to be in a truly family loving environment with the great delicious all vegan food. I booked a single room and was very clean and comfortable for me. It comes with clean fresh towels and your own water bottle. We had the chance to access all the property landscape with the amazing view of the jungle horizon that opens to water, mountains and woods. It's a truly heaven place to reflect on every aspect of the beauty of Costa Rica. Carlos, Alex and Jessica are very warm hearted loving people that taught me so much and I can't express how transformed my being to a higher and better human on this earth. Especially going through the tough times with experiencing the power of the ancient plants, Carlos was there for us at ALL times to assist and uplift our spirits. We got the chance to visit the top of the mountains, volcanoes waterfalls and some small shopping areas. I highly recommend the retreat of Nada Brahma Healing Center for everyone who is really serious about big transformation to be a better soul on this earth. Love and light to Carlos, Jessica and Alex <3 Hattan Bakhit

      Ayahuasca

    Para mi haber conocido a Carlos, Alex, Yessica, Andrés, Sofía y Roof fue algo inolvidable, estoy muy agradecida por todo lo que ellos me enseñaron, no solo con las diferentes medicinas, que todas son increíbles. El trabajo que ellos hacen es algo integral y muy profundo, ellos son una familia increíble, llena de amor y gracias a eso toda la experiencia con la medicina se vuelve mucho más fácil, el sentirte en casa te hace sentir también que estás seguro y puedes en la ceremonia dejar de resistirte a aprender lo que Ayahuasca tiene para enseñarte.. Ayahuasca me enseñó mucho de traumas de la infancia, del universo, de la conexión con lo espiritual y el trabajo en uno mismo, de la vida de las personas que me rodean como aprendizaje, entre mucha otras cosas.. Este viaje ayuda no solo a sanar, también a conocer más de nosotros mismos, nos ayuda a comprender muchas cosas y va más allá de lo que puedes imaginar.. Estoy muy feliz también por haber experimentado la experiencia con mi grupo en el retiro, los amo mucho a todos, Joy tu también me enseñaste mucho y lo sigues haciendo =) Muchas gracias por todo a todos los integrantes de Nada Brahma Healing Center que son mi familia, los amo!!

      Ayahuasca Extraordinaria!!!

    Para mi fue una transformación espiritual. La medicina, el ambiente y actividades proporcionadas por Carlos, Alex y Jessica crean una armonía única y comunicación extrasensorial con tu interior, la naturaleza y la unidad. Sin duda una experiencia revitalizadora y sorprendente. En cada viaje siempre me sentí bendecido con su guía, trabajando mis miedos, aprendiendo un nuevo idioma con mi alrededor. El Ayahuasca es una experiencia fuerte, única, asombrosa y a la vez de mucha paz interior. En Costa Rica fui a conocer la otra familia que había dejado de visitar hacía tiempo.

      Personal and safe

    I was a very careful and observant person until i was invited into Carlos, Jessica and their childrens home. The Ayahuasca ceremonies and all it contains are filled from top to bottom with Carlos and Alex’ love which really hit my inside while i was lying there listening. If you are like me looking for a really personal and safe place to retreat - i highly recommend this place. I do not think it can get any better. I miss you guys and thank you a life time for your kindness and i am really looking forward to seeing you again.

      I now remember who we are.

    Have you ever wondered why we are on planet Earth excisting in a forever expanding universe? I was wondering, traveling around searcing for the answer. By a synchronicity I ended up at Carlos and Jessicas home. And I'm so thankful I did. It was such a safe, loving and beautiful place to be. Thanks to them Ayahuasca had a chance to wake me up and make me feel and know these answers in my heart as clear as I know my name. Here's some of the messages Ayahuasca made me remember; (Feel how the words below goes from your brain and lands in your heart.) *There is no good or bad in the universe, just different perspectivs. *Life's a joke! We're here to have fun, learn, understand and create. *We're all the same. There's no differens between you and me. I am you and you are me. We're all one. *You are the creator of the universe. You have created everything you been thru. And you have the power to create whatever you want and dream of. *Listen to your feelings and intuition, it's your souls language to tell youself your path. Give yourself a big hug and put your hands on your heart. Feel the love growing strong from the inside. You don't have to look for anything anywhere. You have everything inside of you, you have only choosen to forget who you are when you came into your human body. If you want to remember you can. You can meditate for a lifetime to get your answers; or you can buy a ticket to Costa Rica and meet your new loving family Carlos, Jessica, Alex, Andres, Sofia and Raff.❤️✨ It's the best I've done in (this) life so far. It's much more fun to live when you know in your heart the rules of the game. Lots of love and light// Majken Sofia (Finland)

      Life Transforming

    Aligning with retreats at the Nada Brahma Healing Center was the most beautiful thing that happened to me in a long, very long time. It changed my life, nothing less. Without having met Carlos and his team, I felt complete trust and alignement for the process. When Carlos and Alex picked me up at the airport the night of my arrival to Costa Rica, I felt so much bliss. I was there, the path was unravelling. We embarked on a powerful healing and awakening journey for which I am forever thankful. Carlos is amazing. He always found the exact words to reach my soul and made me radiate from the inside out. Alex is a concentrated ball of love and Jessica is so nurturing and loving, adding a welcomed feminine energy to the healing journey. This journey touched my heart, soul, body and mind so deeply. I will never be the same, and I would never go back to my "previous self" if I was to be given the opportunity. In fact I want to go back and work with them further. I am blessed to have crossed paths with the Nada Brahma Healing Center energy and team. Thank you again. From Catherine

      10 years PTSD solved in a week

    Carlos have the most powerful tool to help me heal my soul. Costa Rica have most healing energy if you looking for a safe place to release your mask and heal your soul. All the plant medicines worked on energy level which nothing theory and self work can compare with. I had almost 10 years depression and anxiety. I have tried countless way to heal myself and all I found is people who claim they can cure me they themselves are depressed, includes many spiritual teachers and psychologist. I wanted to find the truth about human happiness and Carlos is the person who have the one truth answer. The whole retreat is essential, Carlos combined different medicines to detox and heal on both physical and mental level. Also when we working on our emotions and trauma, there is no time limit like normal psychology session, Carlos will make sure we processed our emotions by talking to him hours to hours, he cares about people more than anything. It is the place for me to find myself back and heal my abstract trauma.However, with the whole process, finding the right Sharmen is the key, since the medicine is really powerful, we need to make sure we are on good hand. And Carlos is the most reliable person I have ever seen. Also Jessica's cooking and organic life skills also educated me to how to proper take care of my body and have a healthy life style after this re-birth process.

      Magical

    The Nada Brahma Healing centre is a truly unique place to help you through your transformation whether physical, mental or emotional, facilitated by people who really care about each and every person who has committed to this journey. After seeing how Carlos, Jessica and Alex work with people I knew that this was the right place for me to embark on a spiritual journey with plant medicine. I felt supported through every stage of the healing, before and after, which are crucial times to learn how to integrate and make sense of everything learnt from Ayahuasca, Kambo and the other plant medicines. Having tried Ayahuasca previously, I can see how the people facilitating it is absolutely crucial to the experience you have and Carlos and Alex are very experienced and emotionally supportive, which allowed me to feel safe during each ceremony. Jessica's wealth of knowledge on holistic health and nutrition, as well as feminine touch to everything, definitely made me feel very comfortable and looked after where we stayed. The food was amazing and I've even started using some of the recipes at home. I loved that there is no set order or schedule to anything. It felt like a breath of fresh air to just go with the flow and enjoy each moment as it comes. The group activities were so much fun and a great way to see more of Costa Rica. I made some incredible friendships during my stay there and it was so encouraging to see the positive changes in others around me. Not to mention, that the centre was immersed in the wild, with animals and green all around. What better way to get back in touch with yourself. A truly unique place and experience!

      Transformational

    The Nada Brahma Healing Center was a completely transformational experience for me. Carlos and Jessica have advanced knowledge in holistic healing, health and emotional integration. I was supported with whole foods, plant medicine, essential oils, organic herbs, physical activity, yoga instruction, daily water falls access and fun amazing day trip excursions around Costa Rica. Their property is full of jungle sounds, flowers, butterflies, many bird varieties, an amazing view and the occasional monkey troop pass through. I came suffering with weakness, muscle atrophy, limited mobility with debilitating pain in my joints. They customized my healing program to where I am now exercising daily building strength and eating foods that reduce inflammation and pain. There is a very intense emotional aspect of integration regarding the use of plant medicine. Be prepared to face your deepest fears. Carlos is an gifted shaman with this is type of deep emotional healing. This is a 5 star healing center for someone willing to do the work towards complete healing and wholeness.

      Magical

    I participated in a "mini-retreat", facilitated by Carlos. He is a very gentle soul and has a very liberating approach as a guide. The retreat consisted of ayahuasca, kambo and a temazcal ceremonies. I felt very safe in the hands of Carlos and highly recommend Nada Brahma Healing Center. I did not feel restricted in any way, on the contrary, I felt a lot of freedom to choose what to do in my spare time, while processing the plant medicines. Jessica was also very helpful in created an amazing atmosphere and cooking delicious vegan food to support us through the integration process! Carlos's assistant - Alex amazed me with his beautiful and relaxed presence and his opennes to share his healing story with us. And not to mention their gorgeous children, which add an element of childish joy and playfulness to it all. Thank you for hosting my first Aya ceremony, I would love to come back and build upon that experience and give you a big hug <3 Love, Anelia

      Immersion with self

    Attending the Nada Brahma healing center this last 3 weeks has been a life changing experience for me. While it was incredibly intense and triggering at times, it also opened up pathways that catapulted me into connecting and accepting my light AND shadow aspects and open my heart to a massive degree. I barely recognize who I am right now… This is liberating and also terrifying … The reason I gave this retreat five stars is because of everything it encompassed that led me to these shifts: A sacred space to experience Ayahuasca ceremonies, and safety to process deep trauma that came up throughout the retreat. I felt unconditional love from Carlos and all the staff, and personalized attention when needed. I also had I mmersion with nature, and healthy juicing and detox from sugar, meat, dairy and processed foods under Jessica’s tutelage. I also am grateful for the connections I made with all the other participants that I saw myself in. I feel like I have a family here I can come back to that has seen aspects of me nobody else has. I am incredibly grateful to Carlos, Jessica, Alex, Andres, Sophie, and Ruff..
