Thank you so much for considering a weekend retreat with us! We are honored to do this sacred work and feel blessed that you are looking to have your journey at our facility in Orlando!

Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth is a spiritual learning and healing center focused on providing the community with service, education, spiritual fellowship, healing practices, and guidance.  Our neo-shamanic church blends shamanic traditions from the amazon with our western culture. We embrace all paths of a free responsible search for truth and spiritual meaning and believe that each person is a unique & individual expression of the Great Source of Life and that each person is sacred and worthy of love.

We believe in the rights of Mother Earth, and in protecting the practice of Mother Earth-based South Native American spiritual traditions, ceremonies, and sacred indigenous natural medicines. What is of the earth is our holy sacrament, and we retain the rights as citizens of this nation to use plant medicines as tools for the benefit of our physical health, spiritual growth, and personal evolution.

We do not charge for the medicine, but for the work of accompaniment, for meals, accommodation, psycho-spiritual integration with trained coaches, psychological support, and medical supervision!

Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centers and hotels. We have designed our cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.

IF YOU CANCEL THE AYAHUASCA RETREAT:
Please send an email to info@ayahuascachurches.org or call 407 360 6501 as far advanced as possible. We do not refund your deposit but you can reschedule to any retreat in the future. The exception are if you have a medical condition that does not allow you to participate.

IF WE CANCEL THE AYAHUASCA RETREAT:
We have never had to cancel a retreat, however, if we do cancel a trip due too few participants, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot, however, compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that SOUL QUEST AYAHUASCA CHURCH OF Mother Earth must cancel a Ayahuasca retreat due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund – it will be depending on receiving a refund from the venue / tour operator we work with. To cover these risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:
• you cancel your participation in the Ayahuasca retreat
• the retreat is canceled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough participants to run the trip
• lost baggage
• medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured

We recommend TRAVELGUARD, which offers a variety of travel insurance, including the option for a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” policy. If you cancel your retreat – for any reason – your airfare, hotel, retreat costs, etc. up until 48 hours prior to travel, will be covered. This comprehensive package is called the ” Gold Package Cancel for Any Reason” Policy”. You must contact Travelguard and purchase the policy within 15 days of buying your airline tickets or incurring any costs for any part of your travel. You can also just ensure your air tickets. Travelguard can give you quotes for each scenario.

I drank here in the beginning and waited to post this because I didn’t want to diminish any healing that other people received. I’m incredibly happy for them. I also don’t want people to think it’s all rainbows. I’ve been asked to post this so here it is. I believe they are business first healing center second with that I decided it wasn’t the place for me after drinking there multiple times. The medicine is… was good but during my last retreat I attended the founder watered it down so he had enough which I thought that was super disrespect but these are just my beliefs and experiences. He said his supplier told him to but he didn’t do it until he realized he didn’t have enough for everyone, which sounded like hogwash to me. I realize everyone doesn’t view or respect the medicine the same way as I do. They also don’t have a curandero (English we say “shaman”) to guide ceremony and they do overcrowd like 20-25/30 people at a time with no true guidance or able to clear the space beside sage. If one does show up they usually don’t work with them for very long. The facilitators are nice and have good intentions but there also have been poor intentions there as well which have caused the two different entire staff to quit at once but new people join on that had good experiences. From my knowledge young women have been what I feel were taken advantage of and inappropriately treated in other subtle ways. People serving medicine shouldn’t mix with attendees in romantic ways as the guest have such a high status view of the server. I’m not saying people aren’t going to get healing there because I saw some beautiful things happen but I also saw some disgusting things happen that turned me completely off. Do your own research and see how it feels to you these are just my experiences from drinking there about 13 times looking for something that wasn’t there. It did get me to travel to Peru and have a life changing experience for this I am grateful it was a somewhat ugly stepping stone.
And to me it’s not about being hokey or not it’s doing one of the, if not the most powerful psychedelic which is traditionally always given with guidance until we learn to navigate the medicine ourselves. But again just my beliefs.
In the end, we follow our hearts to where it leads us.

Response from Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth on November 15, 2017

Dear Lance,
Although your review comes to us over a year and half after your last retreat with us we are sure there is value in it, as with all reviews. We love and appreciate all of our members and are always open to hear suggestions on where we could use improvement.

Please accept our sincere apology we are truly sorry to hear you had a negative experience. When you were with us almost 2 years ago we were operating as a different organization, at that time we were Soul Quest of ONAC which we are no longer. We are now Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth and much has changed since that time. Over a year and half ago, we relocated our church to a more spacious and accommodating property on 5 acres of land. We have a new staff with a new set of staff guidelines which we adhere to very strictly, we also have several new private accommodations to create a more comfortable experience for our ever growing group of members.

When you were here last, we were a brand new church with much growing to do and as with anything that has never been done there are always mistakes to be learned from and growing pains along the way. We are often making changes to better our Church and the Services that we offer to our human family. Since we changed locations and became Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth we have had over 500 ceremonies at our new location and have been blessed to be able to help many members get much needed healing. Even though we do not claim to be holding strictly traditional ceremonies such as you would find Peru, Brazil and throughout South America we often have visiting Medicine Men and Women come to guide and teach us. Our Peruvian Shaman Maestro Gaspar, who has well over 40 years of experience, visits us quarterly to lead workshops and to share the teachings of Grand Mother Ayahuasca. You can be sure that our staff and members are ALWAYS learning and growing!

Soul Quest was founded with the vision to make Ayahuasca available to all souls who are called to experience her transformative healing as she spreads outside of the Amazon Basin. Before, during and after every one of our ceremonies we do our best to go above and beyond to make sure everyone of our members feels safe, loved and at home. Furthermore, we keep our phone lines open to all who may need assistance with their integration process once they return home. Our wish is that everyone whose life has been touched by Soul Quest will find and maintain true transformative healing within themselves and within their lives.
Once again we are deeply sorry your experience was less than ideal and we would love for you to come join us for Ceremony in the future so that you can experience for yourself how much Soul Quest has grown. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. May Your Journey Be Blessed.

I attended a weekend retreat here at soulquest. It was very unprofessional. No shaman, no live icaros, the one’s doing the ceremony do not even take the medicine. The first night me and my wife attended the ayahaucca ceremony. We knew it wasn’t right but discussed it and agreed we had already paid so decided to go forward. Chris the owner said he tries to give people an aya experience without all the dogma. Which is fine if you just want to party but I would not advise to disrespect mother ayahaucca in that manner. Without the proper guidance ayahaucca and other shamanic medicines can be very very dangerous. I’m not going to go into detail what happened to me during my stay but I was up for 5 nights and almost ended up in the hospital. Although Chris and the staff are very nice people and might have good intentions. This in not a drug and should not be played with. I’ve spent over a month in Ecuador with very skilled and respectful people to the medicines and participants. [Gaia sagrada ] and spent a small time with teachers from the shipibo tribe in Peru. This happened to me with experience, it can happen to anyone. Please, I advise to be very careful. Especially if this is your first time. Just because something is cheaper and more covenant, doesn’t mean it’s better. Do your research. Make sure the people know what they are doing so you leave with the healing and love you went there for. Aho
