I attended Nimea Kaya in February 2019. After 2 years of touring India, healing myself, teaching and being taught as a yoga teacher, a mama instructor, an Ayurvedic practitioner, learning from Gurus and the rest of it, I ended up in the jungle, driven by a sense that this will be the way to come full circle with my ongoing personal quest. I came to find myself, a sense of direction, a purpose. I found a community, a tribe, a family. Never have I experienced so much care (from the facilitators), so much kindness and dedication form the whole staff. This is so far in my life, the most profound experience, the most significant journey, the deepest adventure I have submitted myself to.
I met shamans (authentic ones), healers, helpers, kindred spirits and I have seen God… There is no words to describe the journey itself, for fear of taking away from it. What I can say is that we all know taking the medicine also means feeling safe and in good hands. On that basis alone, I would recommend Nimea Kaya to everyone who wish to experience the medicine in the best possible environment. More pragmatically, accommodation is comfortable and authentic. The food is vegan and was amazing (all fresh cooked meals, fruits, veg etc and the now all time favourite Jungle pancakes), the organisation was perfect (one can tell, there s a system that’s proven itself over the years- very professional), the schedule is also perfect and takes into account the physical and emotional journey participants go through. we gathered for fire ceremonies, gong baths, documentaries about the jungle and the plant medicine, connected in the main house where you can draw paint, journal, we made friends with the local shipibo tribe through the Market day, visited a remote village, danced with beautiful people and shared our experiences, emotions and deepest pains, all that in harmony. The only thing difficult about Nimea Kaya, is to leave the place.
