WARNING. This center has had a death. The stabbing of a facilitator. There are numerous accounts of abused staff at this center (sexual, emotional and physical) all over the internet, despite the attempts of owner Omar Gomez, real name William Feldman, to have these reviews flagged and removed. And now a staff member lost their life.
Along with the death and abuse, there are accounts of Omar spying on women bathing, as there is no privacy for the “showers”, so much as a bucket out in the open to use in the river, where anyone can see you. The compost toilets were similar, with nothing but see through nets instead of doors. Omar also “reaches out” to “attractive” past female guests under the guise of integration and then has sex with them.
Guest might have a good retreat and receive healing, but it shouldn’t be at the cost of the lives of the people working there. A guests wonderful ayahuasca retreat shouldn’t be because of a facilitator who’s desperately trying to hide that they’re being abused so they don’t ruin your retreat. There are so many other options for an ayahuasca centers. This center should be on no ones list.
