Ayahuasca is an herbal medicine that has been used for centuries by indigenous people in the Amazon region. The active ingredient in ayahuasca is DMT, which is a powerful psychedelic substance. Ayahuasca retreats have become popular in recent years, as more people are seeking out alternative methods of healing and self-exploration.
While ayahuasca is legal in some countries, it is not legal in the United States. This means that if you want to experience an ayahuasca retreat, you will need to travel to another country. There are many reputable ayahuasca retreat centers in South America, where the medicine is legal.
If you are considering an ayahuasca retreat, you should do your research and choose a reputable center. There are many scams and fake ayahuasca retreats out there, so it is important to be careful. Make sure you read reviews and talk to people who have been on an ayahuasca retreat before making your decision.
If you’re looking for an ayahuasca retreat that provides an intimate setting with no more than ten people in a group, look no further than Behold Retreats. While Behold does not have any ayahuasca retreats within the US, it does have options if you feel like hopping on a plane and experiencing your ayahuasca ceremony in picturesque Costa Rica.
The island is known for its spectacular beauty, and participants often remark that they were glad they were able to go through the ayahuasca process in a new environment that is profoundly conducive to healing.
Behold Retreats offer ayahuasca retreats in a “safe, legal, and luxurious environment.” Their retreats include education, therapy/coaching, travel to the retreat, and integration.

This retreat center, located on the Kona Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, holds ceremonies that are similar to an ayahuasca ceremony every Sunday. The ceremony starts at dusk and lasts until around midnight.
Muaisa Hale Pule does not use ayahausca in their ceremonies but instead incorporates indigenous Hawaiian and Pacific island entheogens. It is said that these medicinal plants promote profound healing, causing participants to experience heart-openings and shifts in their consciousness.
Their website does not state precisely which entheogens their plant medicine consists of due to concerns that if information on the plants became widely known, their use would become problematic legally.
This organization offers a variety of ayahuasca retreats in the Amazon, Sacred Valley in the Andes Mountains, Machu Picchu, and private retreats in Peru, Mexico, and Costa Rica. Their main retreat center is on the banks of the Ucayali River, 4 hours from Iquitos. Their ayahuasca retreats last from between 7 to 21 days.
Their website stresses that ayahuasca is not a recreational drug and should be used respectfully. Other medicinal plant offerings include Sapo (Bufo Alvarius), Rape, San Pedro and Kambo.
This healing retreat center has three locations: Playa Blanca in Costa Rica, Sugar Beach in Costa Rica, and Tarapoto in Peru. Soltara’s mission is “to bridge this gap between head and heart for those who seek it.” They hope that by doing the healing work that is so essential, especially in today’s society, participants can “journey back home.” Once the inner work is well underway, self-healers can serve themselves, their communities, and Mother Earth more effectively.
This ayahuasca retreat has one or two dates per month available at their healing center. New Life’s shaman, Matthew, has been working with plant medicine since 2013 and training since 2015. He has completed hundreds of ceremonies and now incorporates chanting and instruments within the ceremonies.
New life has six private rooms and three shared rooms. There is a maximum of 14 participants at each ceremony, as New Life believes that smaller groups are essential for the intimacy of the ayahuasca experience.
