Join us for this life tranforming retreat in the Amazon of Peru. We facilitate 9 day retreats with 4 ayahuasca ceremonies with traditional Shipibo curanderos. Take part hands on in brewing the ayahuasca medicine! We offer a wide range of healing modalities throughout your stay, such as yoga, meditation, art therapy, ceremony integration circles, plant baths, massage and much more. Take this opportunity to heal with this master teacher plant and see how much your life will change with amazing success!
Our shamanic retreats are designed to accommodate each individual on their path of awakening and healing. We offer a series of three or four Ayahuasca ceremonies per retreat with a local Shaman, also known as a Curandero or Ayahuasquero.
Our healers have been well established in the shamanic ayahuasca practice for several decades. Our medicine is brewed with only the ayahuasca vine and chacruna leaves. Our ceremonies are facilitated with the utmost integrity and responsibility. There are always four to six of our staff members in every ceremony helping our guests through their healing journeys with the sacred medicine. Drinking the ayahuasca medicine during ceremonies allows the participants to expand their consciousness to a multi-faceted universe.
Ayahuasca takes the individual through a process of cleansing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. The individual journeys through a series of visions often receiving profound realizations that lead them to a place of healing, understanding and balance within themselves. During the course of the retreat we offer facilitated group sharing and one on one counseling.
We prefer our groups no larger than 17 people to accommodate an intimate and personal setting during ceremony. Our ceremonial maloca is very spacious, providing a comfortable environment for the profound experience. It is situated in the midst of beautiful native plants and trees where where natures orchestra graciously joins us in our sacred ceremonies.
Things To Do
We provide for our guests with herbal and floral baths with a unique blend of plants and flowers from the surrounding jungle after each ceremony. The plant baths help to wash away any negative energies stagnant in the body and help prepare the participant for a more profound healing with the plant medicine Ayahuasca. The invigorating and cleansing bath will help rejuvenate your spirit.

Ayahuasca is a miracle medicine and has a power and intelligence about it that is completely indescribable. I waken each day grateful for the opportunity to have had experienced its beauty and force. Furthermore, I am equally grateful that I found Nimea Kaya where the power of this wonderful medicine is enhanced greatly by the abundant and positive energy found in your beautiful setting. And, the beauty of the land is only surpassed by the beauty of the people (which includes all of the facilitators, staff, the amazing Curanderos and the other guests) all of whom came together to make a truly remarkable “set and setting”.

My time at Tierra Vida was extremely enlightening and humbling. The team there are so loving, supportive and understanding. It gives you peace of mind to know and feel that they are there primarily to aid in your healing, they define altruism. They put so much energy, time and care throughout the whole transformative process. If you are feeling the call to come take Ayahuasca and are looking for the right setting, I assure you that this is the place were miracles happen. It can be difficult at times and takes a lot of courage to undergo this type of soul work. My advice is always remember to surrender and let go, come with no expectations as they will surely be exceeded. Language fails to describe the power of the experience. Before coming to the retreat I was lost, alienated and well pretty darn depressed. Now I live on with great clarity and understanding of my place in the cosmos. I get to truly live and to give and receive love again.
-- Baden Lucas
Upon returning home from Tierra Vida:
I stopped all caffeine and energy drinks and/or energy pills, and I have too much energy daily. It's like I'm on speed, until it's time to hit the bed. Then, boom, with no TV. I was a TV junkie. Now, I hold my hands over my ears when I hear the news. It attempts to suck my positive energy away.
I sleep 8 hours per night having had insomnia since age 6. Nothing would make me sleep, e.g., warm milk, praying, reading, GHB, valium, 10 Benadryl, etc.
My tinnitus is gone having had this constant, loud ringing in my ears for the past 5-6 years. I was taking 4 Bioflavonoid pills per day to stop the ringing. It helped some, but now it stopped completely without any pills.

It is our commitment to help facilitate healing on a individual and global basis. We deeply honor our connection with our Mother Earth and are excited to witness the mass awakening happening on our planet at this time. The plant spirit medicine, Ayahuasca, is playing a pivotal role in this transition and we are very grateful to have Her as one of our profound healers and teachers.
- Our shamanic retreats are designed to accommodate each individual on their path of awakening and healing. We offer 9 Day Retreats which include four Ayahuasca ceremonies guided by Shipibo Healers, also known as Curanderos. Our healers have been well established in the shamanic ayahuasca practice for several decades. Our medicine is made on site during each retreat where the guests may assist in the sacred brewing process. We only use the ayahuasca vine and chacruna leaves. No other admixtures are used.
- Our ceremonies are facilitated with the utmost integrity, safety and responsibility. In addition to the two Shipibo healers, there is always a minimum of five of our staff members in every ceremony assisting our guests through their healing journeys with the sacred medicine. These staff members do not drink the ayahuasca medicine during these ceremonies.
