Aya de La Vid is a retreat center specializing in Ayahuasca ceremonies, aiming to provide spiritual healing and personal growth for its participants. The center’s ultimate goal is to promote individual healing, which in turn contributes to healing the planet.

Ayahuasca is a traditional sacrament or shamanic brew consumed by people in the Amazon Basin, including Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, and Bolivia. Known as “La Madre” or “La Medicina,” it is made from the Banisteriopsis caapi and Psychotria viridis plants. Ayahuasca has a long history of medicinal use in the Amazon, dating back at least a millennium.

Safety is a top priority at Aya de La Vid. They provide comprehensive medical preparation guidelines for participants, advising them to consult with their primary care providers before attending a retreat. Those taking SSRI medications are encouraged to discontinue their use 4-6 weeks before the Ayahuasca ceremony, following proper medical protocols. Additionally, participants are asked to follow “La Dieta,” a specific diet that helps prepare the body for the Ayahuasca experience.

The retreat center also requests information regarding any history of psychotic illness, bipolar disorder, non-psychotic mania, family history of schizophrenia, or heart conditions. This ensures that all participants are suitable candidates for the Ayahuasca ceremony.

It is essential to note that, while Ayahuasca has significant cultural heritage and medicinal uses, some countries classify the brew as a controlled substance due to its DMT content. Aya de La Vid provides a legal disclaimer on their website to inform potential participants of this fact.

Aya de La Vid offers retreats in various locations, such as Guatemala, Tulum, and Cancun, providing participants with unique and beautiful environments for their transformative experiences. The center also shares research on the science behind Ayahuasca and its potential benefits. Guest reviews can be found on their website, offering insights into the experiences of previous participants.

By offering these Ayahuasca retreats, Aya de La Vid aims to foster spiritual growth, self-discovery, and healing, ultimately contributing to the well-being of the planet.
