I will never ever forget it! My experience with Ayni Retreat was incredible and until today I am still very blessed that I had the opportunity to work with the peolpe at Ayni. They have helped me change my life in so many ways, words cannot express how grateful and thankful I am. If you get a chance to take time out of this busy life, go and spend some time in the mountains. Work with the shamans and this beautiful plant medicine, you will not only be able to find yourself but you will also open so many doors to an amazing life ahead. There are so many times in the ceremonies where I felt like a button has been reset or reprogrammed. I Will be forever thankful!
This retreat is in a beautiful
I’ve been drinking Ayahuasca with different groups for ten years, but this trip was different because I was able to go to Ayni. I had fun and felt that I was in such good hands during this journey. The Shaman are amazing, a very high recommendation for their work and have warm and funny personalities besides, and the setting was beautiful and peaceful, and though it was an uncomfortable and difficult process at first, it has affected my life in amazing ways – providing healing and helping me see how to create positive change. Every ceremony provides new breakthroughs, far too deep for me to explain in a review.
I now can see just how powerful and effective the work and healing done here is and the incredibly positive impact. I am proud to say I was here near the beginning and will continue to strengthen the friendships that have developed down there. As many know, Ayahuasca can be scary, dark and even painful physically at times while confronting different aspects of our reality and individual psyches. Because of this a safe environment with knowledgable Shaman and facilitators is absolutely crucial.They don’t cut any corners and afford everyone real, individually focused healing throughout the experience. They had me crying over and over again at the beauty of what they do. This is a retreat center that is safe and peaceful. The location is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommended I am more than happy to correspond and share testimony of my personal growth and experience with these souls.
We had such an amazing time. The ayahuasca was much stronger and everybody in the group had some great experiences and the shamans were great and very good their job!.
My best recommendations!
During the ceremonies if you have any addictions, illness, negative energies or anything, the Shamans physically and mentally work very hard to relieve you of these afflictions. They are all very unique in what they bring to the table and you won’t find any that are more caring and who work very hard at making sure you are satisfied with your experience. Everyone goes above and beyond by taking time to make you feel at home.
I truly have never written a review, even though my travels have been extensive throughout my life. This experience changed me. I have more peace than I’ve ever felt. I highly recommend this to anyone who’s looking for answers.
This was the most amazing journey I have taken ever!! Awaken your senses, and connect with your inner peace. This was a healing and awakening journey for me and others that attended the retreat.
I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and genuine care and attention that is given to each and every individual. Your safety and well-being is a priority. I feel blessed and honoured to have experienced this journey with these amazing souls. I highly recommend this retreat to all those who are wanting a true Ayahuasca experience.
My journey was out of this world, and the quality of care and guidance I received was nothing short of amazing.
The healing work was very personal and has absolutely changed my outlook on life, awakened my true purpose in life. Going to Ayni was the best decision I could have ever made and I can honestly say that what I thought I wanted in life was not what I really truly deeply wanted or needed. I’m lost for words to explain my experience but be transformed, live life in the now and find your inner self. Thank You
I am extremely grateful I trusted my instincts and booked this experience with Ayni. Love, Consciousness and Healing were at the center of attention. Words are hard to describe the experience!
I have changed drastically; mentally, physically, and spiritually. If you’re looking for a hippy-dippy experience of dealing with surface level emotions such as dancing, singing, and freedom, this is not the place for you.
On the contrary, If you are looking to partake in some serious energetic and spiritual work on yourself, then look no further. Safe and comfortable environment. Wise caring souls. Amazing environment.
Blessings, Kind Regards, and THANK YOU!!!
My decision to travel halfway around the world and attend an Ayahuasca retreat in Ecuador was one of the toughest and nerve-racking decisions I’ve ever made, after many of hours of researching I decided that Ayni was the best option.
I loved everything about my stay and my experience, it really has given me a new perspective on life. After leaving the retreat and getting back to reality I still can’t help but think that attending Ayni was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and that I had absolutely nothing to worry about as your health, safety, and wellbeing is their top priority!
I was nervous going into the retreat because I didn’t know what to expect or what was going to happen during each of the ceremonies, but from the second I met the shamans, I immediately felt safe and welcomed and in good hands. Feeling safe and cared about and looked after during this entire process, which can be a bit intense and difficult at times, is the most important thing, and Ayni does a flawless job fostering a safe environment. The Shamans running the ceremonies are caring, and are truly amazing at what they do.
I highly recommend this retreat to anyone looking for a safe and incredible ayahuasca experience. I would definitely come back to this retreat in the future
Ayni was amazing….the staff were loving and walking in a perfect space…the shamans icaros were the most beautiful music I have ever heard it was a true life best(icaros)in a psychedelic ocean. If yours looking for strong ayahuasca and not the big groups with what they call gringo juice this is the place for real healin…..saftey (love)that they provide with such potent medicine is powerful combination for healing….i was in a group of 9 and everyone was glowing after leaving this place and when they got they looked and felt like totally different.
I just returned back from what has been the most profound and influential experience of my life so far (and I’m in my 40’s). If you’re considering this journey, you are probably with a lot of the same questions that I had. Is the place safe, are the Shamans authentic, will they be able to take care of me if things get too much, etc, etc. Well, I want to say yes to all these questions I had, and that you might have also. I can’t say that I didn’t a lot of fears, but I came to understand that these fears are the reason that I needed to do the work, which is Ayahuasca.
I can honestly say that I am looking forward to returning again next year, and this really is a testament to the facility, the place, and most importantly the healers who you will come to rely on, during this sometimes tumultuous experience.
good luck on your journey to find the best place for you, but trust me that this place is well worth your time, and you will come away with a renewed lust for life, and a new passion to be the best person you can in the world today.
I’m not sure I can put into words how amazing this place is, i know I had found the right place. I had felt a “calling” to this medicine a long time ago and I finally felt ready, I knew there was a lot of healing needed and I was ready to begin my journey. I was so lucky to be part of an amazing group (there was only 5 of us and it worked beautifully).the Shamans and all the staff where amazing, I can’t praise or thank them enough. Everyone is so kind and helpful. They really are there to help and guide you. My first ceremony was incredibly intense and the Shamans did some incredible work to guide me through the night. I never felt unsafe or in any kind of danger at any time. The positive energy and light shine through in every aspect. They truly care about the people that come to this retreat.The work these guys did for me was truly amazing and unforgettable. I have no doubt in my mind that I will return to Ayni. I somehow feel I belong there, there is definitely a connection too strong to ignore. Thank you for this amazing experience.
Safest and best place to have your shamanic experience I feel comfortable writing this, cause this wasn’t my first stay in Ayahuasca retreats, and here, you get all the care and attention you need, to understand and enjoy fully, the spiritual process you going through..thanks,
5 stars! excellent!
This retreat has changed my life completely. Thanks to the Shamans and everyone there. During the retreat every one was very helpful in giving guidance about the spiritual world. As this is my second retreat, I can see that all of the staff in this retreat sincerely have a lot of love to share with everyone, we were treated as family, even after the retreat.
I had a lot of visions that I don’t have to share here because everyone will have a different vision and you need to have faith and try it yourself. The most important thing that I got from Ayahuasca ceremonies is that I found what I was looking for, my deeper sense of purpose. My goals in life before the retreat was all about getting more money, but money didn’t make me feel complete. Love does. Ayahuasca made me realized that we are all one, we are part of the universe and love connect us all.
The work they did to us was excellent. I miss everyone in there and even the birds, and the bees. I will be back soon
So, if You want to find real happiness in life and feel complete, this is definitely the place.
Ayahuasca is such an intense experience and anyone who is going to take the leap and try it all have the same questions and worries. Is it safe? If something goes wrong can the staff handle it? Should I be nervous?
I know this because I had the same thoughts coming into it. It’s no joke, ayahuasca should only be taken by people who have a genuine desire to explore their spirituality and the aspects of life most unknown to us yet most important.
After a week at Ayni I can easily say that the shamans and all the staff who work there put you in the best possible hands.I couldn’t recommend more the team at Ayni.
As for the treatments/sessions, they are done with the utmost care and love and at no point in time are they not there for you if you need.
I my self-had a really difficult session one night and even though it was one of the most powerful and tough things I’ve ever been through mentally, and the shamans were there through everything and I knew I was completely and 100% safe and afterward I realised it was one of the best and most wonderful things that had ever happened to me.
I recently spent a week Ayni Ayahuasca Retreat. This was probably the most profound week that I spent in my life. I have a very busy life. I had to make an effort to go on this trip. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It changed the whole meaning of my spiritual world. I never thought that the Ayahuasca medicine could do so much for me. I’m a new person today and I owe it all to the wonderful shaman and people who welcomed me in their place and gave me a new life. Thank you!
My journey to this retreat was more than I could ever ask for. It was my first Ayahuasca experience so I was slightly nervous about what to expect. Everybody in my group had many questions and they made sure they all got answered.
This place is the real deal, the Shamans are truly amazing with great abilities. I felt safe every step of the way.
From start to finish these people are caring, patient and most importantly genuine. I didn’t want to leave…a piece of my heart stayed out there because I know I’ll be back again soon! A huge thank you to everyone that works at Ayni for a memorable stay.
Honestly, words cannot express my praise, deep gratitude and appreciation for my experience at Ayni!! But I’ll do my best
I was there as a female solo traveller coming from London.!The retreat is gorgeous. The ceremony, hang out and eating space is wonderful and big! And the bedrooms are all so spacious that so you can easily spend relaxing chill out time in them. They have a really good feel to them, regularly cleaned, and have the best views around!-and the outdoor space is gorgeous!! Beds are comfy with cosy blankets, and they get made daily.
But the biggest value of the whole retreat is the healing, love, care, support, spiritual guidance and true story telling you you’ll receive! You will be filled up with joy, love, faith, trust, and knowledge!!
This is seriously the best place ever, it has changed my life! I’ve done Aya and San Pedro before but honestly after experiencing it in Ayni I will never work with other people again! This is on a totally different level. I’ve never seen shamans doing so much work on people anywhere else. I really love them all. I am already planning to take all my friends there because I can’t imagine a better place. Not only the people are amazing but also the surroundings. It is a real paradise and the place is just so comfortable and beautiful, really great conditions. It is also safe and they know how to deal with every situation. I’m so happy I took part in it. Can’t describe the experience in detail because there is so much to say, I still find it difficult to speak about it to people. Words can’t describe it anyway, the only way to understand is to go there and experience it. Thank you and I will be back soon with all the people I can take with me!.
People, there are very helpful and professional in every aspect. Starting from incredible Shamans who are very wise, kind and open to others. Once you meet them they will always be somewhere around. We still hear them singing sometimes on the other side of the globe. With all this supporting energy and calm presence around, you never feel alone and even during dark jungle nights you have no fears. And even if you do, there is always bravery that you can find in the circle. The place is amazing and there are no words to describe the sounds of the jungle that is everywhere around you. Accommodation really authentic and charming and they work there really hard to make it even more perfect. Week goes fast but during this time you really have a chance to BE there in the way you personally need.
I won’t say much about the actual Ayahuasca ceremonies as they are deeply personal experiences. But the Shamans were simply incredible, very powerful and sang beautiful Icaros for most of the night and were very supportive. I will never doubt Shamanism they were like conductors at the front of an orchestra controlling the experience. We felt safe and cared for through out the whole time we were there.
The other guys in our group were the icing on the cake, all beautiful, wonderful open people
This was a life changing experience that should call you. Don’t enter into this lightly. I couldn’t recommend Ayni enough, we will definitely go back. We are so grateful of the experience and have nothing but love for the people at Ayni.
Our group of people were all so special and I have made lifelong connections around the world. Ayahuasca didn’t take me on the crazy roller coaster I was expecting but regardless I spiritually and mentally have some clarity. I will definitely be back. Thank you for this amazing experience.
The few words that come to mind when I reflect on my experience are profound, intense, growth, sacred, eye-opening, life-changing. So much healing took place during my time at Ayni. I researched ayahuasca retreat centers in Ecuador extensively and I am incredibly happy with my decision of Ayni. It was safe, comfortable, and nourishing. I was a woman travelling alone and felt completely secure and cared for. The rooms are spacious,peaceful, colourful, lively, overall stunning. I stayed for 2 weeks for the ayahuasca and san Pedro ceremonies. I was actually only scheduled to stay one week but decided to extend my trip and participate in the san Pedro ceremonies. I would definetely recomend this place to anybody wanting a life changing experience.
Such a welcoming and positive environment to experience Ayahuasca and San Pedro in. The shamans made each ceremony a safe place to have spiritual and mental breakthroughs. The follow-up sessions the day after the ceremonies gave a lot of clarity to the visions I’d experienced. The rooms were mosquitoes free and the food was awesome. All the staff that worked at the retreat whether it be ground staff, cooks or Shamans were all very friendly and helpful. it was definitely a positive life-changing experience.
Ayni is a really beautiful place surrounded by gorgeous mountains. The accommodation itself feels part of the magic as you are in nature the whole time Just being there in nature is a cleansing experience in itself.
We chose Ayni because the groups are small and there seemed to be very personal care and that was definitely the case. The intimate nature of the place and the care of the people who worked there created a wonderful atmosphere which meant that everyone there really looked after each other. There was a strong sense of peace and love among everyone the whole time.
I found the experience challenging and had a lot of nerves but I was given a lot of support and guidance to help me make sense of what was at times quite a confusing and scary process. This support and care really helped me to get the most out of the experience.
Thank you to everyone at Ayni that supported me. I hope I will see you again.
The overall experience I had in this place just amazing and above all expectations. Of course, people come to ayahuasca retreats for spiritual and personal growth and each and every person has it very differently, and this kind of experience isn’t something to be rated. I had incredible life-changing insights during ayahuasca and San Pedro ceremonies. The shamans are great and knowledgeable shamans, but they are also nice and kind people. To me, this was very important, because before I came to Ecuador.I have heard that there are dark shamans and some of them can be quite powerful.
The place is clean and well managed, the food is great. I can’t say enough about how thankful I am to all these wonderful people of Ayni.
My wife and I went to Ayni Retreat. We had limited travel experience outside the US and we had no experience with plant medicines. This retreat was the best personal investment we’ve made both individually and as a couple – it was a life-changing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for healing. When we decided to go, my wife and I both had some fears since we had never done anything like this but we could feel the genuine care all the staff had for the guests. I felt 100% safe and cared for. The staff had so much joy, and especially bringing my wife, it was so comforting to know that everyone here truly had our best interest in mind throughout the entire trip. We felt very connected with the other members of our group and it was so good to be able to share our experiences with them each day. My wife and I had several great ceremonies and several challenging ones, but honestly, the challenging ones were also the most healing and life-changing and I’m so deeply thankful for them.I would highly be recommended this retreat to anyone who is interested. If you’re on the fence, I would encourage you to go, it was worth it beyond what I can write in a short review.
My experience with Ayni’s Ayahuasca Retreat was very good from the very beginning.. I went to the retreat not knowing what to expect and with very little knowledge about it – and what a great experience it was! People say, “Life changing experience” – and without exaggeration, it was a life changing experience. One of the best experiences of my life, challenging but a truly made me feel safe, comfortable, and they guided me through the process with patience, kindness, and dedication day and night. Ayahuasca ceremonies are not easy experiences and are absolutely very intense and scary at times. Having great, kind, positive Shamans whose positive energy I could feel through the room was very comforting and reassuring.
Great place, highly recommended! Ayni Ayahuasca Retreat. I will carry this with me forever! It opened both my eyes and my heart! Thank you!
Ayni is a great place to try Ayahuasca, people working there are really dedicated and trustworthy. They`ll try to make your stay as pleasant as posible.
As for the experience itself – it came with a lot of unknown, but it also put me on a much better path in life – one which includes the knowledge of not worrying too much. Thanks again, everyone!
All of the people at Ayni are like a big family – they open their hearts and make you feel at home and will do whatever it is they need to do so that you feel comfortable. It was my first time working with Ayahuasca, and it was the most profound experience of my life, as well as the most difficult! The shamans are very loving and incredibly gifted, they will do their best to help you in your situation, whatever it may be. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a safe, beautiful, authentic center to experience plant medicines, check out Ayni.
That is the main lesson I got during my 3-week retreat was love, and one, that I feel, I will be digesting little by little for the rest of my life. I also feel that taking part in this retreat was the most powerful experience of my adult life. It is almost impossible to unsee or forget things you have seen so clearly in your visions, no matter how harsh or uncomfortable they are. I do feel though, that the whole experience did plant a seed somewhere inside of me (probably heart), that is gonna take some time to sprout and will grow into something beautiful.
Talking with other people who took part in the retreat, the facilitators/hosts and the shamans, it is clear that the ayahuasca experiences are so subjective and personal, that there is no sense in expecting you are going to have an experience anything like mine.
They are true master healers, toughest guys I know of. The icaros will stay with me for a looong time. I feel so grateful for the love from all the people working there. Really lovely community they have built together, helping people in a very concrete way to get over some of the trauma that life tends to imprint on us.
Logically thinking, I would have to thank everything for everything, because truly we are all one thing. All is one, everything is connected. Thank you for this amazing experience
My experience was absolutely wonderful and amazing.
The shamans are doing fabulous work and I felt completely safe en supported throughout the whole journey.
Some major and profound shifts happened and I grew a lot on a spiritual level.
I miss the place and hope to be able to go back one day. I absolutely wholeheartedly recommend this place, you will not regret it.
Never did I ever think any such an experience as possible. The amount of clarity, direction and spiritual growth that was achieved in me was nothing short of amazing. The people here are absolutely beautiful human beings. The shamans were incredible at their craft. It was really something to behold. The value that I got out of the things that I learned and the skills that bestowed in me far outways the monetary cost of the retreat. If you are looking for positive, transformative experience in spiritual healing and growth than look no further. Thank you Kawsay for the beautiful, loving experience
My husband and I attended this retreat. I had a lot of hesitation going into our trip. I had never experienced anything like this. I wanted to share an experience with my husband and that is how it started. I didn’t now what that for myself. I would say this experience broke me open and showed me/taught me things about myself I otherwise would have never learned or it would have taken years to uncover. But i do believe that is was just the start of waking up to myself
When I first heard about ayahuasca I knew it was something meant for me to experience. I had never travelled outside of the US before so I was very nervous. I knew that I wanted an experienced Shaman, someone that had not just trained for a couple of years to jump into a booming industry. My research lead me to Ayni.
The site was beautiful. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were clean. The food was tasty . The company was the best I had kept in a long time, and the support staff was the most loving and nurturing staff you could imagine. It was not required but I tipped them well and hugged them hard with much love and gratitude before I left. (FYI- tips were not required for any staff but after my stay I tipped all the staff and Shamans. It is true that some things you can not put a price on, but I tipped anyways knowing that there should be some kind of personal exchange with those who willingly give to us without expectations. So I gave a little extra and found the experience to be completely worth it.)
During our rest days we did a lot of fun things! I spent a lot of time bonding with others in our group. This experience alone was much worth the trip. We took a trip to a local village. The landscape is beautiful.
The ceremonies were everything I imagined and more. I watched first hand of some amazing healings. I was in awe when the Shamans could describe the visions one saw with incredible accuracy because they truly are there with you protecting you on your journey. The Shamans were full of so much love it is hard to even put into words. Make no mistake Mother Ayahuasca will make you work for what is needed, but it was so nice to know someone was there to guide me, explain things, and protect me. When you truly feel loved and secure you are able to focus better on the task at hand. It also makes the healings that much more effective.
– Most of all be kind and courageous and remember we are all connected in ways most couldn’t possibly imagine.
For those that seek this experience would already know what they are looking for. this place is that place. care and guidance are just perfect.
Location is literally out of this world. It simply is everything you will wish for and more.
My first ceremony was definitely the worst of them all but think of it this way. Once you do the first ceremony the rest are easier. Your not alone, not only the facilitators at Ayni are there to help and guide you but the others that are doing the ceremony with you are a great help by knowing that everybody is doing it together.
Even it feels awful the feeling afterwards is the best right? Well imagine everybody is really hung over on the “”life alcohol”” that could be summed up by depression, drug addiction, anxiety, etc and the only way to get that out is by inducing yourself to vomit all those toxins with the brew of Ayahuasca.
I absolutely recommend it. Do I recommend Ayni? Absolutely YES!!!!
I just got back from my excursion and it was the best decision I have done in my life. I’m sure everybody thinks that its too good to be true that everyone says great things about Ayni. If that is the case well instead of wasting your energy being skeptical I will advise that you should use that same energy and put it to work.
I went online to see what others do to fight depression and I came across the all natural medicine, Ayahuasca. 3 months after Im writing to all of you now. Im proud to say that after going to Ayni Center I got my depression situation under control. They are really good at healing guys, dont matter what you got going in your life. I highly recommend to go visit Ayni.
For the future Ayni customer make sure you do this. Please try this place, they are amazing people. Its crazy to know that I’m more closer to some people who I got to meet in 8 days than some people that are my own family. Its incredible!!!!! You will be in good hands!!!!
I contemplated and contemplated until I decided to invest in myself and see if this medicine would give me the breakthrough I needed to get my life back in track. I went for it and by time I spent a week at the Ayni center I realized what I needed to do to get that paper. I literally started my little online business and one thing led to the next and now I might not be making the same amount of money I was making before but Im way more happier knowing that Im my own boss and nobody could fire me now. I know its a matter of time that my little online business will kick in and that will lead me to knew projects. Thanks to Ayni I realized whats really important in life and its not all about money.
“Hola, Fue un placer haber conocido este lugar.La medicina Ayahuasca fue el canal que necesitaba que ver. Las visiones que tuve en mi ceremonias que dejaron saber que fue lo que sufri desde mi ninez. Cosas que se me habian olvidado o de una manera o otra mi mente puso esas memorias en el olvido. Ahora ya de grande se como conllevar esa informacion.
Mi recomendacion es que cualquiera que sienta que la vida es muy deficil, tiene que ir a Ecuador y tiene que matricularze en el servicio de medicina que ofrece esta compania. Es una medicina muy poderoza por ende es muy importante que seleccionen una compania que sepa utilizarlo correctamente, y por eso les recomiendo el Ayni Center. Buen dia”
I cant get enough of this place, it literally is my second home. This is my second visit and Im already planning when Im going back to Ecuador.When it comes to Ayahuasca I’m a veteran and I have visited many other places but none compare to Ayni Center. For me what makes them so great is the vast knowledge from the shaman. Thanks for everything!!!!!
“I just got back from Ayni, and the experience is still very intense in my mind and in my body. I came with a “”simple”” lifelong issue that I needed to resolve. In short, Ayni blew away my expectations and my time there is, by a very, very large margin the most intense and important spiritual experience that I’ve ever been a part of. It was, to be perfectly clear, the most important event in my life.
Let me say, looking back, that the most essential part of choosing a partner in any Ayahuasca experience is the quality of the team that will be working with you. By the team, I mean the Shaman and the facilitator. During your journey, you will be surrendering your care to them. This is heavy. This can make or break an experience. I can tell you from the very depths of my heart and my rebirth that this was an incredible experience.
My advice to you, if any of this review has resonated in any way, is to trust your gut and go to Ayni.”
There is really no numerical value you could give this company, Ayni is by far the best there is!!!!!. If your reading I’m sure you could relate, we all suffer from stress and some sort of anxiety. Whats interesting is that you don’t realize the little things that we do as humans that lead us to have these emotional and psychological issues. I was in denial for many years lying to myself that I didn’t need help or guidance to overcome my problems, but it was not until I decided to sign up to have mother Ayahuasca guide me to enlightenment. Its definitely the best decision I have made in my life. The second best decision was deciding in experiencing this journey with Ayni.
Magnificent, incredible, magical experience of my life!!!!!!. You think Im kidding but in all reality I just got home from my trip from the Ayni Center and I cant stop thinking about numerous experiences in Ecuador. I have been scared all my life and now with all the amazing experiences I feel like I could conquer the world. So if I could do it, you could do it.
My wife and I decided to travel the world to detox from the mundane life we had. We did our research and we followed our stomach. We both love latín america and said, “Lets do Ecuador for our anniversary”. We were surprised what we found and from this excursion to the next we decided to go all out and do Ayahuasca. With all the companies that try to say they are the best, my wife and I vouch for this place. Ayni is exactly that, they will give you the hand you need to connect with nature. We stayed there for a whole week and wow it was phenomenal. We highly recommend them.
What up everybody. Mike here just saying hello to the future Ayni member, family, customers, The momento you arrive you are truly treated like family. I felt more at home in Ecuador than how I feel when Im at home, isnt that crazy. Im looking forward in going back in a few months. This time I want to stay a month not just a week. I love Ayni.
The Best The Best The Best Experience Ever!!!!!!. Wow I had a blast.. Im just really impressed with the shaman for facilitating my communication with Mother Ayahuasca. Thank you Ayni for being so professional.
All the reviews that you will read let me say that its truly what it is, incredible. I came from Ayni Center a new woman. I could summarize it by saying that I let everything in the past where it belongs, in the past. I’m ready for my next chapter in life. I want to thank all the people that were in my tour for being so supportive, caring, and comprehensive.
Love you all!!!!
Im proud to say that I had the best time of my life in Ecuador. I got to say I got the treatment of a queen. From the moment I stepped in this center I felt the positive energy and the love. Thank you Ayni, you’ve changed my life.
Everything was just perfect..perfection is Ayni. I was once just like you reading all the reviews…stop reading and sign up with Ayni…best investment on yourself
You got to be open minded before you even think about reconnecting your soul with mother nature. Everyone has a different experience when doing Ayahuasca but we all have one thing in common and that is we all become more aware of the inner demons that control our lifes. It may sound horrible but the truth the only to change our outcome life is to be fully aware of whats holding us back. Ayahuasca has been the gateway for truly knowing my purpose in life and what I need to focus my attention, my time, my resources on. Thank you Ayni for making this possible for me.
I wish I could give it more than just 5 stars. My mind is blown by the experience that I had. Ayni Center, is the perfect place to let go of everything. I’m sure if your reading this you could relate with me that we all need a detox from the day to day grind of life. I will admit the first two days were the hardest for me since my body did not take the medicine so well but I stuck to the program. My body realized by the third ceremony that this is what I needed to do and it get easier as you go through the process.
My experience at Ayni was exactly what I was looking for. This was my first time in ceremony and the atmosphere was perfect for me to deeply connect with nature and Source for incredible healing. The fact that the group was small encouraged loving connection with passengers and staff. The setting was beautiful and authentic, providing time for introspection, relaxation, and emotional processing. Thank You AYNI
The people were great! The food was awesome. The time I spent was very nice also very informative. The workers was very helpful. They did almost everything so I can keep a smile on my face. Very therapeutic, peaceful and loving establishment. It’s a great opportunity to get well connected with nature.
“I remember when I was in doubt whether Ayahuasca would be a medicine or a drug. I have always been a person who flees to the drugs and for many years I was anxious to know what was on the other side of the world, to say the least. I felt that I was breaking a biblical commandment. But the reality is that all creation is made by God and this medicine is derived by the same creation and plants that God put on this planet.
Now that I return to my home I feel a relief. So many doubts that my own religion has not been able to answer me because now Mother Ayahuasca has taught me the why of things. Undoubtedly it is something spiritual and leads to a unique mental and spiritual clarification. I wanted to express myself in this comment because I’m sure there are more people like me who feel that same doubt.
It was sincerely the best experience of my life thanks to Ayni, I’m super grateful.”
“If you have never done Ayahuasca let me state that is not what you might think it is.
All I could say is that don’t give up and don’t look back, just dive right in and commit to the process. If you do Ayahuasca you could literally overcome anything I promise you. You will feel like I do, invincible and unstoppable, nothing will get in my way now.”
Never in my life had I found a group with so much love to do that for a total stranger. I trust them full heartedly and will be going back to continue my healing.
I send them all my love and graditude. In God of heaven they trust and with Grandmother Ayahasca.
Thank you for loving me.
I love you all so much.
I was completely blown away by Ayni. The first place I drank at I felt ignored and like I was just a dollar sign. The medicine was weak and I didn’t get anywhere in my ceremonies.
In stark contrast to my last experience and the team at Ayni. The location could not be any better and the food was amazing. Far better than the last place I went to. I had the option to do various activities most days and I was constantly impressed with the teams vast knowledge.
Now the ceremonies were the part that blew me away the most. Firstly the groups were a lot smaller than the last center I had attended which had crowd control problems during several ceremonies. At Ayni the facilitators were infinitely better; perfect even. They made sure everyone was prepared. The medicine was very thick and at least twice as potent. Much love to the team at Ayni, you’ve saved my life!”
“There really is no way to describe this experience. What I can say is that this a an experience of a lifetime in a safe and secure environment where you will feel comfortable and supported on you journey.
I have visited to other centers in the past and this by far has been the most rewarding by far!”
You got to come to Ecuador and experience what Ayni has to offer. Its been a crazy roller coaster for me personally to take the plunge in coming across the other side of the country(I live in USA). I must say it was worth every penny. Let me put it this way, who is going to love you more than yourself? Then why wouldn’t you invest in yourself and take care of your body, mind, and soul?
I know its a lot easier said than done, but hey if I could do it you could do it.
Mother Ayahuasca helped me understand that the reason why it took so long for me to get far in life was because of all the negativity around me even though I love them with all my heart. If you want to come or have any curiosity just do it. It was the best experience ever.
This was an adventure. I was amazed at the medicine. This was what my body was asking me for years. I enrolled is all the churches. I read the Bible from the first page to the last page. It is more until you study the Koran and nothing came about so far that I found the medicine spectacular. Thanks all members of the Ayni center. I love you all for transforming my life.
“Ayni is a safe place to experience Ayahuasca. This will be my second Ayahuasca retreat and my first one was in Brazil with another company that I won’t disclose out of respect to them. I will say that I’m taking the time to write about Ayni because this was by far the best experience yet. The energy is great and it was very important to me because it’s the only way it allowed me to fully transform my inner darkness and convert it into something beautiful and satured. Now experiencing and seeing how things are done at Ayni I could say that from here on forward I would only recommend this retreat, Ayni Center is the best!!!! You must go!!!!”
“This is it, this is the place, this is the one you’ve been looking for. My experience has been nothing short of miraculous,the food was all natural, fresh, and exquisite, and the staff are all expert at what they do. I had a lot wrong with me including a number of physical ailments, many of which they had the cure. So tell them EVERYTHING when you go – you’ll be amazed.”
“It was different from what I had imagined. I realized my imagination came short to what I experienced with Ayni. They are a company that prides themselves in excellence because they really put some thought about the whole process of healing. The journey is sacred from the start. Peace and tranquility are just nonsense words to describe how wonderful this place is. I’m not the type to leave reviews ro post things in Facebook but let me tell you I have no choice but to share and talk about this place that is hands down the cure to many conditions any civilized human being has by default. Stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia is all in the past the moment you come to the Ayni retreat. I was mind blown to see how not only me but all us in the group did not want to leave when the retreat was over. Thank you so much Ayni for giving me the purpose in life.”
“I just returned from an Ayahuaska journey at the Ayni center that was beyond epic!
I’ve always dreamed of going to a spiritual retreat. By fate and in great timing. Aynia remedies, the stellar staff and everything about this was worth going! A really good price for all we were offered. Im going to keep healing after this I feel complete and like I received everything needed to stay not the right path. I felt an experienced nirvana and enlightenment. I see the world with new eyes, protected and walking in the light. And if this is just the beginning and theres more than that during the process, Im going back and bringing family and friends! Thank you Ayni center it was an honor.”
After many months of research I found the best retreat and the most beautiful place on earth, Ayni. Im in deep love with this place and did not want to go home because I found a new definition of what home should feel like. I enjoyed everybody that I shared my Ayahuasca experience with but I must say whom I enjoyed the most was the connection I had with the shaman. The communication and the bond was so perfect that it made it much more pleasent to proceed with the Ayahuasca ceremonies. I will always be thankful for this experience.
I just got back a few days ago from the most amazing experience in my life. Hands down the best days of my life thanks to Ayni!!!! I learned so much about myself but if it’s one thing I will like to share is this: That great things come when you approach fear. I was scared out of my mind especially watching all those YouTube videos of people vomiting their guts out once they took Ayahuasca. I was scared of all the posible side effects. Now I’m not saying self-awareness is not important but it hit me how much fear leads to insecurities. This trip to the Ayahuasca center of Ayni helped me so much. It’s a magical place and a remarkable experience you got to go…Im already planning going back in the next 6 months.
I did my research and I quickly realized that Ayni was the best option to experiment with this medicine called Ayahuasca. Obviously, there are other retreats that offer similar services but the reason why I went with Ayni is because they seemed so genuine and vastly knowledgeable with the process of Ayahuasca. I wanted to be safe and not worry about anything and that is exactly what I got.Everything was perfect and I recommend to everybody who wants to connect with mother nature to go with this company because they are truly professionals.
“This is one of the experiences that I remember everyday.
I embarked into it with many factors at my sights, and it signified such a good turn to take in my Life. It brought more light than I could’ve ever fathomed beforehand. I learned so much… about me, about my identity, about my world and my demons, about my angels.
This world is flooded with endless, ever-going Mysticism, and it fulfills me to realize this Center concentrates such armonic and chill waves of it, and that I am now part of it, and it’s a part of me.”
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!!! The most professional staff from the facilitators, the shaman, everybody was just amazing. I cant believe there is a hidden gem and how I was blessed to experience an unforgettable experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Its the safest place on this planet!!!!! We dont see the dangers around us because we live in it every day so we as human get desensitize to it all and are quick to judge the unknown. Well let me bring you all at ease, Ayni is the safest place you will ever be to lift yourselft to a higher enlightenment.
I had the best time of my life. It was better than expected. Ayny is transforming lifes. Words cant express the way i feel. My life purpose is clear now and I see what Im destined to do. Thank you so much Ayni!!!!
I can’t express how much this center has done for me! The city was fun but the actual center is so beautiful! The amazing staff of this center was very comforting and helpful through everything the food the views from the rooms where so beautiful. I went to asha looking for a new type of adventure and I got that and some 5 stars thank you Ayni for having us! Amazing!
My time here at Ayni is one that I almost can’t describe! For one the food was soooo amazing!everyone is so helpful and amazing it’s really home like and was like a little family but anyway the medicine was strong and I experienced what was life changing for me I went to this retreat kind of a mess my life was a little all over the place when I left I felt so relieved!! So fresh so new like I had meaning to get back to my life and make certain changes and I did I have been clean and sober for a while I changed alot of other things as well for the better! But I have been to other places and we’ll it’s just not the same at Ayny. Your amazing!
I come from a very religious background and with that many limitations and a very narrow perspective in life.In my journey in seeking spiritual enlightenment I came across Ayahuasca once again and it took a lot for me to build the courage to step outside my element. At first I was thinking in all the reasons why I shouldn’t do it and I must admit even after I made the decision of going it felt wrong. I was even second guessing myself just thinking how was I going to get around Ecuador, if I dont even know how to speak Spanish. Let me tell you that the moment I arrived in there everything started changing. When I saw the staff from Ayni welcoming me to my arrival I felt safe. All my worries had vanished.
From that moment on everything was amazing. Its hard to admit but I was really scared abouit it all but I’m so glad that I pushed through my insecurities. I promise you that doing the Ayahuasca retreat with Ayni is the best decision you could do in your life, it will literaly change everything for the better”
Ayni is by far the best retreat I have ever had. I always plan to visit a new place every year. Let me tell you I have traveled many different places and this trip was by far the best experience I have ever had.
Usually when I come home from a vacation I get that sense of relief and for the first time ever in my life I felt the complete opposite. Its been about roughly 1 month since I got back from Ayni Center and I still feel the urge to go right back to Ecuador. Everybody needs to come see what they got to offer. It was life changing.
I must say that I loved the place, I felt very safe on the ceremonies with the shaman and the safekeepers. In the whole week I was there. The food is great, very organic. The rooms where great with beautiful views. I would highly recommend this place for anyone who’s travelling alone. Never felt alone or abandon in any way.
Ayi center though blew my mind! The center is beautiful and I loved every adventure we were taken on. One of the most powerful and hard working shamans I have worked with. We had such individualized attention. Everyone was kind and friendly. There is a lot of love in this place.
I was able to heal some deep rooted things I had been working on for awhile.
I will always be grateful for the healing and love Ayni and all the staff showed me. And I will be back soon!
Thank you all!”
Since joining the ayni group it has made a huge impact on my life both mentally and physically. My mindset now is positive open and the belief that anything is possible with self belief and determination. I wake up each day now feeling blessed that it’s another new day and I am excited about what the future may hold for me. Physically I have more energy more get up and go just thrive for each new challenge. I really hope many others can experience this wonderful feeling and spread it world wide.
As soon as I arrived I was welcomed by the Ayni center staff. That was when my five star treatment began. The place was very nice and a warm shower after 18 hours of travel was amazing. I was shown a great spot to have a meal that was on my Ayahuasca dieta.
We arrived at the center and it was a beautiful facility and very well kept. The staff was all waiting to greet us. They took care of all our luggage and showed us around the property.
We met with the shaman and discussed our intentions for our ceremonies.
The shaman took very good care of us after our ceromonies by sitting with us and discussing what we had experienced.
One of my favorite parts was feeling like I was at home!!! They were always checking in and making sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed.
I was living like a queen at the Ayni center. This trip changed my life and has continued to do so upon my arrival back home.”
Ayni changed my life! Once i had chosen to try Ayahuasca, I had so many places to choose from. I was so overwhelmed. I watched many YouTube videos and stumbled across Ayni Center. It looked fun and had other options most did not. These people are soo AMAZING! It was purely magical! Safe, great village, food, views, knowledge, I could go on and on, but i want to leave some surprises. The best thing was you get to spend time with the Shaman, other places they seem to hide the shaman. Thank you for the amazing experience and the Ayni Center for showing me exactly what i needed to see!
I attended the Ayni center a couple of weeks ago now and was absolutely in awe of everything about it. The incredible landscape, the humbleness of the people, the inspiration, generosity and kindness of the shaman and his crew, the inner healing abilities of the Shaman with her icaros and medicine on so many different levels. It is so remarkable and deeply inspiring to me to see and know the visión. This powerful space for the purpose of helping as many as he possibly can …to hold this space for healing in any and all ways one could be needing.
I highly encourage anyone who is seeking intensely deep healing and growth, or even just to experience something of a lifetime, to please go and check out being a part of the beautiful sacredness of this…I believe with all my heart that you will be so forever grateful you took this time to invest in the pure magicalness of what is to be offered here.
The ceremonies and my experience with the Shaman were life changing. It is a very hard thing to describe but what I can tell you is that for me, it brought an end to many issues I have carried for years, it allowed me to let go and accept.
Ayni is a safe and loving place that allows you to give in and embrace your true yourself and others as they do you, on an intimate level that you never excepted but are so comforted by.
I pray that if you have fear, anger, insecurity, pain, either physical or mental, you will reach out to Ayni for assistance, you will come home a new person with an experience that will outlast all others.”
Incredible. That’s what i can say about my Ayahuasca “spiritual” journey with Ayni Center. It was the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me. Words are not enough to describe how i felt during my 2-week stay in this amazing place. My intentions were all granted, a gift of power to heal, and intuition, meeting my spiritual guide to help me in making good decisions. The staff and place are so welcoming and treated me as if I was one of the family. Something amazing is going to happen in my life and I can feel it in every fiber of my well-being. Im glad and proud to say that I was able to heal my soul and I’m forever thankful
Ayni Center has changed my life, down to root of everything- my soul. From the environment to the people who run it to the medicine that is Ayahuasca. I am moved by my experience. The staff is beyond amazing- the shamam was able to personally help with all my struggles. I can’t believe the healing powers! I cried because I never wanted to leave the center but who I am now after my experience is a stronger, happier complete soul full of love and gratitude.
I just got back from a week Ayni center and it’s hard to put into words how truly amazing it was. The center overlooks the andean mountains. I can only describe this experience as life changing. The power of the medicine is incredible! I learned so much about my strength as a person and I will be forever grateful to Ayni Center. If you are considering a center to go to… This is the one! I guarantee you will get so much more out of it then you ever imagined, as well as feel safe and relaxed the whole time! So much love to those who made this trip to be more then I could dream!
