Nine Day Immersive Ayahuasca Retreats
At Nimea Kaya, we offer Nine Day Traditional Ayahuasca Retreats with four ceremonies, guided by both male and female Shipibo Healers. Our shamanic retreats are designed to accommodate each individual on their path of awakening and healing. We provide a safe, responsible, and compassionately supportive environment for those seeking a responsible way to open themselves for healing and exploration. Integration circles and continual personal support are provided to ensure successful personal transformation. We also provide the opportunity for our guests to work with a variety of alternative healing modalities for a more holistic approach in gaining long-lasting successful changes in their lives. At Nimea Kaya, we deeply value and honor the unique process each participant will experience with Ayahuasca and are able to provide the necessary knowledge and assistance to guide each person through this life changing journey.
Our Ayahuasca Medicine is made on site during each retreat, where the guests may participate in the sacred brewing process.
Throughout the retreat, we also offer yoga, meditation, breathwork, sound healing journeys, plant baths, art therapy, guided plant walks, ceremony integration circles, and one-to-one counseling.
Our team of experienced facilitators and healers offers an abundance of loving and encouraging support, helping our guests come into a new sense of self-empowerment, releasing the blocks and limitations that previously held them back in life.
Complimentary Ayahuasca Preparation and Integration sessions are offered to the guests before and after the retreat.Practitioners:

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
A successful experience with Ayahuasca will require a multifaceted approach to be able to maintain the long-term benefits from working with this Medicine. We strongly recommend for there to be a dedicated time to the preparation of the journey before stepping into the ceremonial process. Upon receiving approval to attend our program, a preparation guide is given to the participant. This will include how to follow the recommended Ayahuasca diet.
The 9 Day Retreat Journey will include 4 Ayahuasca ceremonies as well as a variety of holistic healing activities and modalities to complement the healing work. Guests have the opportunity to assist in the Ayahuasca brewing process. An initial welcome meeting is offered on the first day to go over the details of the retreat program and to give an in-depth overview of the process for working with Ayahuasca. During the retreat, guests have the opportunity to have one-to-one consultations with the shamans and lead facilitators for further integration.
The healing work will continue after the retreat, as it does not simply end when the ceremonies are over. This is where some of the most transformative changes take place. Following the suggestions and recommendations on how to navigate the integration period is paramount in achieving the long lasting transformation people are seeking. After our retreats end, an Integration package and complimentary ayahuasca integration sessions are given to the participants.Intake Process:
An application must be filled out upon applying for a retreat. Within the application is a series of medical questions inquiring into medication use, physical and mental health, and intentions for wishing to participate in a retreat. Once the application is approved, we will send an email with all the necessary details to begin preparing for the retreat. Complimentary retreat preparation calls are given to the participants in the weeks leading up to the retreat.Supplemental Modalities: Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork, Sound Healing, Plant Baths, Integration Circles, Art Therapy, Nature WalksPsychedelic Substances Offered: AyahuascaHow does this Center source medicine?:
We source our ayahuasca and chacruna from a local property in the Ucayali region that has dedicated their land to sustainably planting the vine and leaf. They are continually planting more and only harvest at the appropriate times in the growth cycle of the plants. Nimea Kaya has also planted the ayahuasca vine on many areas of the property and will be harvesting when the vine has matured sufficiently.Practice reciprocity with local communities?: Yes
