I visited Nimea Kaya from June 26 to July 4, 2019, and it changed my life. The staff were absolute superheroes. They made us feel safe and cared-for the entire time, especially during the ceremonies. The facilitators are not only well-trained but incredibly kind and supportive. They created the perfect atmosphere to allow for real, meaningful growth for all of us. Jill and the entire team at Nimea Kaya truly care about helping you on your journey, and the Shipibo shamans they work with are miracle workers. I don’t speak Spanish and was therefore unable to speak with the shamans, but through their actions during and after each ceremony, they displayed a level of compassionate care that is hard to describe.
The food is mind-blowing. I’m typically eat a meat-heavy diet, but the vegan food prepared at Nimea Kaya was so fresh and nourishing that I didn’t miss meat in the slightest. Since returning home I’ve stuck close to Nimea Kaya’s diet recommendations, and I’ve never felt better.
The activities outside of the ceremonies were beautiful. Yoga, meditation, immersion in nature, interacting with local artisans, a day trip to a local village: it all worked side-by-side with the medicine.
My experience at Nimea Kaya was profound, and if I have the chance to go again, I’ll grab it with both hands.
