Like most things in life, there are a broad variety of Ayahuasca retreat options, and a number of factors that effect the safety, quality, and cost of an ayahuasca retreat:

  1. Safety First: Unfortunately, many small retreat centers are not in a position to make meaningful investments into screening and safety. Even if you're fine, someone else on retreat might not be, which can affect the overall experience. Our recommendation is to choose a retreat provider that does in-depth conversational, medical, and psychological screening to protect your safety and well-being.
  2. Legality: Experienced practitioners who have dedicated their lives to plant medicine typically live in locations where the work is legal, so they don't have to live in a state of uncertainty about their work Our recommendation is to travel to legal locations where you can benefit from legitimate healers who operate above the radar, so you can truly relax on retreat.
  3. Size of the group: It's common for retreats to have 20, 50, even 100 people in ceremony, which can be chaotic to say the least. In such large groups you are less likely to receive a sufficient level of attention from the facilitators. Our recommendation is to choose a retreat with an intimate group, in the range of 8-15 people.
  4. Length of the retreat: Shorter retreats feel rushed, do not support the cultivation of meaningful relationships, and can limit what can be achieved in time available. We recommend you spend at least a week for an ayahuasca retreat to give your mind, body, heart, and soul the attention it deserves.
  5. ‍‍Comfort: We recommend you choose a retreat where you are confident that you will be physically comfortable and have your own private bedroom to decompress and integrate, especially if this is your first time. Go for the full jungle mosquito immersion another time, your future self will thank you later.
  6. Alignment: Select a retreat that feels aligned with your values and allows your own subjective experience to unfold naturally. There are many different worldviews out there and having a different worldview pushed on you through the retreat may not be in your highest healing interests. This is also particularly relevant for first-timers.
  7. Holistic approach: Work with an organization that takes a holistic approach to working with plant medicine, and has options to support and guide your mental and emotional evolution alongside a retreat. If a provider implies that "medicine will solve all your problems", proceed with caution.
  8. Service: Select a retreat that you believe can meet your individual needs. Are you being treated as a human, or as participant #22 in their fourth retreat this month? Consider whether or not they've taken the time to get to know you and understand you, or it's more of a take it or leave it retreat center.
  9. Booking process: Take the time to speak with the provider before finalizing your booking. If the provider does not have a screening process in place during the booking process anyone could be sitting next to you in ceremony. Some people are not in the right place to work with this powerful plant medicine, and it is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that only people who can handle ayahuasca are accepted onto the retreat.
  10. Expertise: Find an organization that emphasizes healing, and you believe has the breadth and depth of expertise to guide your transformation. Look for facilitators and healers who have a lightness of being and a sparkle in their eyes. Healing work is all about the transmutation of energy, so you are looking for people who have the energy you aspire to. If they aren't able to keep their energy right, that tells you quite a bit about either where they are at and their capabilities.
  11. Reputation: At a minimum, Google the provider, you may be surprised by what you find. If there's not much information, that is also information. A reputable retreat center will have a professional online presence with testimonials from previous retreat attendees. This is essential for you to see that they are a legitimate organization who you can trust to contain this powerful experience.
  12. Volunteers: Please support ethical plant medicine work by selecting an organization that pay their team. Unfortunately, it is common practice for retreat centers to cycle through young, eager, and worn out volunteers and/or not pay healers fairly. If the people supporting your retreat aren't living their best lives , they're not going to be able to lead you to yours. Don't be shy to ask this question directly when you speak to prospective centers.

As with most countries, ayahuasca is not currently legal in Denmark, although there are several other places around the globe where it has been decriminalized, or where lax laws allow for loopholes and legal “gray areas” to give retreat centers the option to work with plant medicines, such as ayahuasca.  Because of these restrictions, there are only underground ayahuasca communities in most places, and the credentials and safety of this sort of gathering is not easy to verify.

If you are looking for a professional retreat, with a certified team of practitioners to guide you through each plant medicine ceremony, then here is a list of some of the best ayahuasca retreats currently available worldwide.

1 Behold Retreats - Costa Rica, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal

This organization  prioritizes client comfort and chooses only the most splendid environments to place their retreat centers.  Participants of every retreat have access to various powerful plant medicines, such as ayahuasca, psilocybin, and bufo alvarius, depending on the location they choose to visit.

Beachfront villas, lodgings with views of the rainforest, and a team of experienced shamans to lead each ceremony are only a few of the bonuses to choosing Behold Retreats for your next spiritual excursion.  Groups are limited to ensure a personalized and intimate inner journey, and reviews have been glowing since the first clients began arriving.  Free consultation is available beforehand, so inquire as soon as possible to find upcoming retreats, and learn what plant medicine can do for you.


2 Ayayni Spiritual Retreats - Ireland

This organization was founded in Ireland, where the laws on ayahuasca e are not so strict, allowing for ayahuasca retreats to be held throughout the year.  Ayayni comes from the word “ayni”, referring to the deep connection between us and nature, which Mother Ayahuasca is said to help us reach.

Facilitators include shamans, musical healers, and a long list of experienced plant medicine practitioners who are passionate about their work.  Looking online is the best option to find the nearest retreat for you, as dates and locations can vary.

3 Union In Arutam - Spain

Based on the island of Tenerife, in Spain’s Canary Islands, this plant medicine retreat center has been facilitating deep healing ceremonies for over a decade.  Each ayahuasca retreat is held close to nature, as the founder believed strongly that the traditional shamanic ceremony is able to bring out a spiritual awakening.

This lineage of shamanic instruction comes from the Shuar people of Ecuador and Peru, from the Amazonian tribes who have practiced these healing modalities for millenia.  If you are looking for a chance to experience the ancient shamanic ayahuasca ceremony, then this is a good option to look into.

4 Soltara Healing Center - Costa Rica, Peru, Mexico, Netherlands

Soltara Healing Center has built a well-established ayahuasca retreat center alongside the mountainous rainforest and beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, with a team of shamans and healers from the Indigenous Shipibo shamans of Peru.  This organization has combined vast knowledge of Western psychology with native plant medicine traditions to offer a truly life-changing experience at each retreat.

Retreats range from 5-12 days, with various master plants used in different locations, but all information and contact info can be found online.

5 Sinchi Runa - Portugal

Based out of Portugal, where plant medicine is able to be studied and practiced more thoroughly, Sinchi Runa has dedicated its retreat center to the ayahuasca journey.  Each ceremony is led by Maestro Sanango, a man with over 20 years of experience guiding participants to healing and transformation.  Diet, meditation, hatha yoga, and other healing modalities are incorporated into each retreat, and plant medicines, such as Kambo are used to promote the most full journey of the ayahuasca ceremony.

Group size is not as large as some retreats, and preparation is required to attend, so reserving ahead of time is a good way to get involved with Sinchi Runa.
