My wife and I spent 10 days at Nihue Rao in Feb 2018. The experience that we had was certainly one of the most valuable of either of our lives. From the moment I arrived, I felt deeply welcomed by the staff and workers at Nihue Rao, who attended to our every need and question without ever crowding us or pushing us beyond our comfort zones (leave that to the medicine!) The team at Nihue Rao is truly an all-star squad of dedicated and disciplined individuals of the highest degree of integrity and ability. The place feels like something from another time – a village teeming with love, smiling faces, children playing, animals being awesome and hilarious, everything and everybody just constantly generating positive karma and a most peaceful atmosphere. The depth of healing that happens here with regularity is nothing short of astonishing. I could, and may someday, write a book about the sort of transformation that I experienced personally, with the amazing support and individual attention given to me by Ricardo and the other maestro shamans and assistants. Let me reiterate – these are the hardest working people I’ve ever met, each with a profound dedication to medicine work and each with the highest degree of integrity, intelligence, sensitivity, and soul. I can recommend Nihue Rao to you 110%. Max respect for these people, the medicine, and the space held for healing. Go forth! Save up if you need to. You will not regret it.
