      I came across Aria’s retreat through a friend. I had never worked with any of the medicines in the past and I was nervous to undergo my first experience. A couple phone calls with Aria and I had felt I’d known her for years. I can’t pinpoint it, but from the moment I booked my plane ticket everything started to feel right.

      Recently, I’ve had a fair number of roadblocks coming up in my life. I found myself struggling to find a way through conflict either at home or at work. I was drinking a little too much, eating unhealthily, and not taking care of myself. I had developed lung issues, and this caused frustration and anxiety. This would all pour into my family’s lives and create stress in every corner.

      After spending some time in Aria’s presence, I had the opportunity to work with Kambo, Ayahuasca, Bufo, and Bobinsana. I cannot explain in words how this experience changed my life. I know I can’t reduce it down to only the medicine but also Aria’s guidance, intuition, and teachings were undoubtedly built from years of experience. The conversations we had and the medicine alike, felt like a lifetime of therapy. Ayahuasca was so powerful in bringing me closer to why I am truly on this planet. As I integrate all these teachings either from Aria, or the medicine, I seemed to have found a new vibrational level to exist on. I haven’t thought about a drink since I left, and my family is more connected than ever. I have a deeper appreciation for the natural world, my physical body, and the spiritual realm from where we came from. The work will continue but I feel as if I have true guidance.

      There isn’t a soul on this planet that wouldn’t benefit from spending some time with Aria and letting her guide them through an experience with plant medicine. She is the only person that you want to be with. I felt truly cared for, and Aria gave me 110% of her attention. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about my experience. There is immense love at the center of Nektar Healing and I hope if you read this, you have the chance to spend some time with her. Do not let fear or doubts prevent you from this transformational experience. I am truly grateful for having met her.

      I found Aria while researching plant medicine. I was suffering from decades of depression, PTSD, and addictions. I watched another person’s story with Aria and found the strength and courage to call her. My mental and physical state was hanging by a thread. Aria was kind and thorough while she gathered my state of health. We continued contact until I arrived for my 12 days stay with her at Nektar Healing.

      Upon arrival Aria greeted me with a very warm welcoming smile and a tour through her sacred space. The fur tribe greeted me as well with lots of love. We soon began with a Kambo ceremony and moved forward with intentions for the later ceremonies. I had fully surrendered to begin the healing process. The plant medicine journey was the medicine my mind, body, and soul had needed to heal. Aria is not only dedicated but connected to the plants she is working with in order to better serve her clients. Aria truly gives every bit of attention to detail of what one needs during the process. I was experiencing difficulty keeping the medicine down long enough and she was guided quickly to a very pleasant solution. My experience was saved as a result. No words can really describe these experiences or Aria and all that she provides during your journey with her. I appreciate all that I was able to experience and learn while at Nektar Healing. Arias sophisticated Knowledge with plant medicine is impressive and inspiring.
      If you are considering a visit with Nektar Healing for any reason, I highly recommend doing so. Aria is absolutely genuine and a Shaman worth visiting for a healing journey.

      I have only positive things to say about Aria and my experience with Nektar healing. After traditional treatments, such as therapy, journaling, yoga, and breath work were not enough to provide the healing I needed, I reached out to Aria to discuss possibly exploring plant medicine for healing.

      I was hesitant and had a lot of questions. Aria was very patient with me and worked with me to explore my current situation, my goals and my concerns. I did not know what to expect when I arrived at Nektar healing but was open to the process.

      I can’t imagine working with anyone else. Aria truly lives an authentic and intentional life consistent with her teachings and her work. While at Nektar healing I was immersed in true healing. Aria has so much knowledge and administers medicine in a very client centered way, working with my personal comfort level, needs and experience. I felt seen, heard and supported. I received the encouragement and push I needed to challenge myself, but also never felt pressured or rushed into anything I was not ready for.

      It’s rare to find such magic in a person. Aria encompasses so many things for me. I left feeling more in touch with myself, with more clarity, and free of years of built up trauma and pain with her guidance. This type of healing is rare in my opinion and I don’t believe I would have found this clarity with another medicine woman or healer.
      In addition to the process and medicines, the facilities were great and my access to accommodations were also excellent. I would highly recommend if you are looking to work with plant medicine you consider Aria.

      HELLO !!! 🌞
      I am Anthony Veritas. A working man who writes music and is on a path of endless spiritual growth. I’ve had TWO experiences with Aria thus far, ayuascha & Iboga, and could likely write a small book of all that occurred. But I’ll keep it short for YOU, the reader. I was introduced to her from a total stranger (with good vibes), spoke to her over the phone for a MONTH before squeezing any trigger (trust issues). In the end, I FELT this is someone I could TRUST, AND who would deliver.

      Friend, I cannot emphasize enough how SAFE you will be, how CARED for you will be, respected, and ENCOURAGED on YOUR personal path. Aria LIVES in the EXTRA MILE. Meaning she does MORE than REQUIRED. Particularly as a COACH, guide, mentor. She LIVES to be here for YOU.

      She is not just giving you plant medicine, she is giving you HERSELF, over a decade if not more, of unfathomable discipline, uncanny plant medicine experience, and a RARE level of spiritual achievement.

      *DISCLAIMER. Plant medicine is the REAL DEAL. It’s not all sunshine & rainbows. I believe, your heart, mind, direction in life, how you treat others, how you feel about yourself, and more. ALL these things, will determine YOUR experience. However if you have an ardent desire to GROW… the sky is the limit. I felt love and enlightenment like I’ve never known, and I visited the depths of TORMENT like never before. But ALL of it SERVED me so dearly in the end.

      If you’re on the fence about Ayuascha or Iboga…. Friend, separate from the cosmic experience. They are life ALTERING. But the experience will be very much your OWN.

      Together, they rid me of underlying existential crisis, opened the door to BELIEVE in myself and let go of the fear of the unknown, and lastly, with iboga, I left with a unique sense of inner calm & peace. No longer needing to “beat myself up”, but rather be patient & kind with myself.

      I’be already PAID my money. I have NO reason to fluff the truth. We are dealing with people’s SOULS, here. It would be a disservice to myself to say anything other than the truth. You will be SAFE. And you will leave a CHANGED person. But DONT FORGET: WE, ALL, still must put the work in after the fact.

      Much love ☮️

      Aria/Nektar Healing is the best of the best. Knowing and working with her has radically altered my life for the better. Before I met Aria I was riddled with depression, anxiety and struggled with bouts of addiction. I was not living authentically, was completely at the end of my rope, unfulfilled and stuck in cycles of self-medicating and self-loathing. I sat with Iboga, Kambo and Bufo under Aria’s care and have had the most incredible life-altering experiences. Aria’s connection to her medicines is so strong and she has so much knowledge and wisdom to share. She always knows what questions to ask to facilitate your own personal awakening/s. I always leave interactions with her feeling awestruck and like I’ve learned so much. Aria is an incredibly gifted medicine woman and an oracle of divine wisdom. Her medicines, compassion and the safe and loving space she holds will guide you on your own healing journey, and inspire you to become your best self. Whether you’re curious about working with medicines, feel the call to heal, and/or seek profound positive change in your life, jump on the opportunity and know you are in the best expert care with Aria/Nektar Healing.

      There are numerous reviews lauding Aria’s wisdom and the excellence of her technique, so I’m going to focus on another aspect: her kindness. I first encountered Aria after posting an extremely harsh (but justified) review about a reckless and unqualified facilitator who endangered my life while profiting from me in Costa Rica.

      A mutual acquaintance read my testimonial on Facebook and informed Aria about my predicament. Within a day of publishing my review, Aria proactively reached out to me, extending both kindness and sympathy, and inquired how she could assist.

      She wasn’t soliciting payment.
      She had nothing to pitch.
      Her aim was simply to offer insight into my situation and to support me in whatever manner I required at that moment.

      This was noteworthy, as typically when facilitators contact me on Facebook, it’s to market their services. This was different.

      This was pure kindness.
      This was genuine generosity.
      This was authentic compassion.

      Aria provided me with a safe space to express my frustrations without passing judgment on my naivety. She attentively listened and mirrored back the reality of both my situation and the broader landscape of the sacred medicine industry.

      In a world riddled with charlatans and swindlers, Aria’s kindness and generosity were a breath of fresh air and a true boon in my time of need.

      Since that time, I’ve completed her Kambo facilitators training course and have grown closer to the practitioner I’ve always wanted to be.

      Her genuine concern and kindness have enabled me to transition from a mindset of scarcity to one of abundant truth.

      After a fiasco in a retreat in Costa Rica and the pain it caused to know I have been duped, I found Aria after ( without knowing) talking with a lady who was one of Aria’s patients.
      I will attempt now to describe my experience with Aria knowing anything I would write will not, by any stretch of imagination, be close to what I experience in my ten days under her care.
      Her knowledge is indisputable. The connection Aria has with the medicines are matched only to her absolute dedication to her patient(s).
      From the moment you arrive, one is inform of the medicines that will be used on that particular day. Of course, a professional, thorough explanation of the way the medicines work and the intricacies of each ceremony accompany this conversation which always includes your concerns.
      Aria makes a sincere, heartfelt effort to get to know the patient and expends a lot of time doing so.
      Furthermore, Aria also explain how important the diet is a we work with the medicines and try (herself) to prepare food that are both nutritious and in accordance to the medicines that would be used in your treatment.
      Also, a sincere effort is made to make you feel as if you were home. Her dogs are so into it, I remember them coming into my bed wiggly happy after I finished every ceremony as to say “ good job, you did it!
      She takes you out to the nearby national park and also stores in tune with the process you are going through, among others.
      From the intake call/ text to the day I left, Aria never faulted on her commitment to me as her patient. All I was told would happened, indeed, happened and more, much more.
      She said “you will leave my place a changed soul” and man oh man was that true. “It will not be easy” she told me and I have to say I didn’t have the slightest idea of how hard and how painful would it be, but under her care, compassionate heart and beautiful soul you pull through it a step closer to become a new soul.
      I don’t know all the Shamans or Medicine women in the world, but I say without hesitation she is the best by far. I am absolutely, unequivocally sure I received the best care available in the world.
      I’ve got to meet and extraordinary woman, a source of inspiration and hope and a force of good for the world.
      I can say I would forever recommend Aria to those sincerely seeking what they desperately need to heal.
      Please do not hesitate to contact this wonderful woman, you will never regret it.
      From the bottom of my heart and new soul, thank you Aria!

      Aria was recommended to me through a friend about 5 years ago when I first moved to Arizona. I was in a lot of emotional turmoil , living in constant anxiety and deeply depressed.
      Aria came to my apartment and offered me a 3 day ceremony with Kambo. She was compassionate, intentional and a beautiful support through the entire experience. I felt safe and nourished in her presence, her faith and intention with the medicine allowed me to trust and flow through my experience .
      That kambo ceremony with aria was a catalyst for a lot of my deep emotional healing and she made a point to stay connected to me after the ceremony and throughout my integration process. For my first experience with kambo I couldn’t ask for a better practitioner to receive from, and to be able to receive in the comfort of my own home made the experience that much more special. 🙏💚

    • Allyssa R. 10 months ago

      I met Aria a few years ago in Costa Rica and we instantly clicked. I had worked with Kambo many times before and she invited me to participate in a retreat sitting for one of her students. We stayed connected through the years and found ourselves in california and I came to another one of her retreats. I then decided to become trained by her to be a kambo facilitator. Aria is the best at what she does and I trust her completely with these medicines. I feel confident in my abilities as a facilitator because i know that I can rely on her to answer any questions I have should they arise. When you train with her she provides mentorship which is invaluable.
      Aria is very real and raw, she’s confident in what she does, she’s patient (she allowed my toddler to come to my training because im a single mom and it was my only option-only a saint would allow that lol) and just whole heartedly a service led leader. If you’re interested in working with plant medicines and/or kambo look no further then Aria at Nektar Healing!

      Describing my experience at Nektar Healing feels almost impossible, but I’ll do my best. Aria, with her unwavering support, single-handedly rescued me from one of the darkest phases of my life. When I arrived, terrified of alcohol withdrawals and the loss of everything, she embraced me with open arms, creating an environment that felt safe, caring, and genuinely supportive.

      Aria’s plant medicine ceremonies were nothing short of beautiful. Through her guidance, I went on a journey of self-discovery that brought forth insights and healing beyond my imagination. Her nurturing demeanor and authentic passion for her work were evident at every step. Her patience, kindness, and adaptability made me feel right at home during my stay.

      The ceremonies were a mix of tradition with modern understanding, a blend that resonated deeply with me. Over my 30-day stay, I participated in transformative ceremonies involving Kambo, Iboga, Ayahuasca, Bufo, and other plant medicines. Each ceremony was uniquely impactful, contributing significantly to my overall healing process. The post-ceremony integration support was crucial in helping me translate these experiences into lasting life changes.

      Nektar Healing is more than a retreat—it’s a sanctuary where transformation thrives. My time there left me with a renewed purpose and a profound sense of connection. If you’re in search of healing and growth, I wholeheartedly recommend working with Aria at Nektar Healing.

      After a decade of dealing with chronic pain, tension and fatigue, I was finally diagnosed with Lyme this year. Aria knew that Kambo would be the medicine for me. I had done Kambo in the past sporadically but the way Aria administers and teaches, combined with her own personal magic, has completely helped me, and continues to help me, transform my life. I participated in a Kambo training with Aria that allowed me to heal the chronic fatigue pretty instantly. Each time I sit with Kambo, I let go of more and more anxiety, tension, trauma and pain. Not only am I healing myself with this medicine, I am able to help others in the same way as a trained facilitator. I’m forever grateful to Aria and her support and sisterhood over the years, and I highly recommend working with her if you’re ready for major shifts and upgrades.

    • Monica C. 10 months ago

      I’ve known Aria since we were just kids…we met when we were 12 and have been best friends ever since! She is so sweet and kind, very wise, and cares so much about her role as a medicine woman and helping people. She’s a true gem! 💎
      A few years ago she served me my first 3 in 3 Kambo 🐸 ceremony and it was absolutely a life changing experience, so much so that now I’m planning to take her facilitator training so I can continue to serve/heal myself and maybe someday others!
      If you’re on a quest searching for healing and the ability to live a better and more fulfilling life I would 100% recommend working with Aria Inanna/Nektar!!

    • Susan G. 10 months ago

      I had a week-long retreat with Aria, with more than one medicine, and she scores highly on every aspect of professionalism and gentle care.

      She may not have the look and feel of your traditional medicine woman (doesn’t look indigenous enough, haha), but she definitely knows what she’s doing, and has a long experience and proper training. I have worked with many many healers before, and can immediately spot the BS. Her BS test came negative 🙂 And she will definitely be my choice for my future healing work.
      P.S. It is also very rare to find one healer who is trained in all of the different plant medicines that Aria offers. So that shows me how curious, patient and strong-willed she is to educate herself on the depths of healing.

    • Nate E. 10 months ago

      Aria is a very knowledgeable, experienced healer and medicine woman. She is also an incredibly strong & wise person who knows how to put ego aside and be the best guide she can be.
      Aria has served me 4 different medicines that have helped me to deepen my understanding and release of the mental and physical illnesses that were very heavily affecting my daily life. Chronic depression, anxiety and toxic mold build up are to name a few of the most troubling things I was facing.

      I also gained priceless insights into my families past that have greatly widened my perspective, and now allows me to create conscious, positive change in my families dynamics.

      Some of the most important work, if not the most important work on myself has been done through and after receiving Iboga.

      Aria is more than qualified, and has been properly initiated in Africa to serve this medicine. I felt completely safe and well looked after in her care and I would highly recommend working with her!

    • Richard I. 10 months ago

      Working with aria at nektar healing has been a life changing experience. 4 years ago I met her for a kambo ceremony. Her insight and experience with the medicine is unmatched. After one series of medicine I quit drinking after life time of abuse. I have since gone through her training to serve kambo and am now healing my community and loved ones. Decades of depression from traumatic brain injuries from breaking my back are all gone. The medicine she works with and specializes in and has dedicated her life to on top of her intricate knowledge and connection to the spirit world is unlike anyone I have ever worked with. The support and safety protocols involved with her ceremonies from kambo, bufo, Ayahuasca, iboga provide the highest degree of integration and change in your daily life. Waking up every day happy at peace and motivated for every day was something I never thought I’d be able to experience but is now my life completely sober with high standards of quality of life. If you’re thinking of working with her in any capacity being served medicine or going through a training program do not hesitate, you deserve to change your life you deserve to live a life of healing take every step necessary to experience working with aria
