The Nimea Kaya retreat was one of the best vacation getaways I’ve ever taken. It was such a safe haven to getaway from the bustling city of San Francisco and spend quality (and much needed) “me” time. I was a little nervous at first, as I ventured into the Amazon jungle by myself, but I was relieved to find the most caring, loving, and welcoming team at Nimea Kaya. They welcomed me with open arms, and the entire group bonded so quickly over our two weeks together that it felt like home.
The facilities were so clean and comfortable! They have beautiful bungalows, and large tambos where the group takes the plant medicine in the evening. Based on much research, I chose Nimea Kaya based on the quality, safety, and support expressed by people via their own reviews, and I was not disappointed!! It was everything I expected and more.
Taking ayahuasca was nothing short of life changing. It takes you deep into yourself and aids you in facing everything that is untrue. I received so many lessons from Ayahuasca through visions and experience, and my perspective of life changed quite dramatically afterwards. It gave me wisdom and understanding that I couldn’t possibly have experienced elsewhere. It opened me up and gave me a greater appreciation for life which was very key at the time that I took it.
In addition to the psychological benefits that took place (i.e. the ease, quiet, and peaceful state of mind), I found myself more comfortable in my own body. It was the first time that I could remember (in what feels like forever), where I could sit still for hours and not chronically think about the past or the future. It helped me center myself in the moment. When I came back home, I felt like my yoga practice improved significantly, and all of the pains or aches that I would normally feel in my body were gone.
I can’t say enough good things about this place and how it has changed me! I look forward to going back, and I’ve been spreading the word to many friends who are into spirituality and open minded enough to take the journey. If you have a chance to go, you will definitely be amazed and in awe of the experience.
