About This Event

About us


Our mission is to provide compassionate retreat program options to others who are seeking to restore balance to their lives through spiritual and personal healing. Our retreat includes 2 ayahuasca ceremonies, Kambo, 2 yoga sessions, a massage and a trip to the waterfall or beach (depending on the season). Spacing is limited for ayahuasca retreats to 8 participants per week to be sure we can provide individualized attention and support during such a personal and profound experience.


Our beautiful facility located in the mountains of San Ramon, Costa Rica, is secluded on a lush 20 acre property about an hour from SJO airport. All guest receive a private room with queen bed and full attached bathroom equipped with hot water. Guests are invited to use our pool and hot tub anytime during their stay. Our property is filled with lush vegetation, fruit trees and trails perfect for nature walks. Our facility also offers a comfortable back patio with incredible views of the Nicoya Gulf on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, perfect for watching the sunset.


We conduct intimate ceremonies (maximum of 8 participants) that are performed with respect to the traditions that have surround the use of the sacred medicine ayahuasca for centuries. Matt, our founder and director, acts as a guide for the experience. Matt’s intentions and passion in his work are unparalleled. There is no question of his integrity and his sincerity in his mission to help others. His presence during ceremony is strong and grounding. Matt sings Icaros, plays the Guitar, Gong and Tibetan Singing Bowl to help guide the participants’ experience. He has been traveling to Peru since 2016 to learn the traditions, complete his dietas and become a ceremonial facilitator. 


New Life Ayahuasca offers additional therapies to promote maximum healing during your retreat with us. We believe in combining plant medicines with holistic therapies to achieve a healthy balance of energies and to support tranquility, peace, and growth. Therapies we offer include Kambo, massage and yoga sessions with our certified teacher. Our goal is to integrate each of these additional therapies into our ayahuasca retreats, with the hope that they will help each individual prepare physically and mentally for the ayahuasca experience .

Kambo, also called Sapo, is a natural non-psychedelic medicine made from the secretions of the Giant Monkey Tree Frog from the Amazon and is used to treat a variety of ailments. Optional Kambo sessions are available at our center as an add-on therapy. It is a great additional cleansing process during an ayahuasca retreat. The connection between Kambo and Ayahuasca is special – being that the spirit of ayahuasca is what, according to legend, brought about the knowledge of Kambo use and its incredible benefits.

Dear Jeanae and Matt, Gratitude from the depths of my being for all your love, support and service over these last two weeks. I had high hopes for my time at New Life Iboga / Ayahuasca and these have all been surpassed beyond wildest of dreams. I have received clear answers to the life questions I came with and found my allies and support. I have connected to the deepest Mystery and learned more about this spirit magic, where I am a novice but open to learning. I have had the most profound healings and blessings and shed so many skins. I leave with strength, love in my heart and a renewed passion to work for a more beautiful world. Thank you so much for all you are doing here. Your service is a sight to behold. That's a lot of work you guys are carrying. I felt very held and cared for, with space to be. I also felt very safe- you've figured a good balance between the sacred ceremonies and some medical attention. May you always know how important your work is. May you receive all you need to support your work. So many blessings and prayers for you both to move forwards on your own paths of understanding and peace. Love G xx
