Jeff Allen's Reviews
I could write for hours about my experiences at this retreat and the shifts I’ve experienced in my life since my time there, but suffice to say that I am 100% a believer in the work they are doing at RHC.
I did a TON of research before committing to RHC, and my biggest point of concern in choosing the right retreat was that I was not looking for an ayahuasca/jungle adventure, but I was looking for a place where healing and fully immersing yourself in your inner work was of the highest priority. I was so lucky to have found exactly that place at RHC. The people there are AMAZING – they’re so grounded and loving, you will be hard pressed to find a place where you will be so supported and cared for during your retreat.
One of the things that really drew me to RHC is that they keep the groups small – there will never be more than 10 people at a single retreat. A lot of other places will have 20-30, which is INSANE. With the small groups you get a lot of individual attention from the facilitator and the shaman. Our facilitator Isadore is one of most incredible people I’ve ever met in my life – as loving and supportive as she is brilliant. With her support I was able to set my fears aside and surrender myself to the medicine.
Ceremony is treated with the highest reverence, and the medicine is stronger than I ever thought possible. A huge emphasis is put on setting a clear intention for every ceremony, and then processing your experiences the following day. This ensures that you get the absolute most out of your ceremonies and that you go home with much, much more than a couple good stories to tell. I went into the jungle with a healthy dose of fear and apprehension – I came out glowing with my heart wide open. This place is pure magic!
I am so thankful to the group down there for providing such a supportive environment – so much care and attention to detail has gone in to ensuring that we are best positioned to truly immerse ourselves in the great work. I am so happy I found them! I plan on returning every year for the foreseeable future. If you’re thinking that you may be ready to start your healing journey with ayahuasca then this is 100% the place to go!
