Amazing, life changing, beautiful. The English language doesn’t contain enough words to properly explain the beauty of this center. Sometimes in life you get a chance to experience moments so pure that you can’t help but be happy. That is Nihue Rao.
My husband and I were not new to sitting with the medicine. But we were new to the jungle. I am so happy that my first experience was at Nihue Rao, as recommended by a close friend. Everyone from the shamans, facilitators, staff, grounds people, and guards are examples of love and happiness. You know you are on protected sacred land when you are there.
I came to the center troubled and I left loving life. This center made me feel safe which is very necessary in order to properly focus and process everything on a healing journey, and as a woman I highly recommend this center. If you read the book “The Fellowship of the River”, you know that Ricardo founded this center with Women’s safety in mind. The amenities are balanced with nature so you have the facilities you need while maintaining the necessary elements to connect with yourself and the healing energies of the plants.
Ricardo’s and the shamans icaros are powerful. They touch the essence of your soul and reconnect you with what you thought you lost, or maybe with what you didn’t realize was missing. In all honesty it goes beyond healing when you leave a center feeling complete and whole as a person.
I would recommend this center to anyone, including my family and close friend. I will definitely be returning to experience the light and love of this center.
