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!).
