testimonials from our global family

“My first time taking sacred plant medicine was the most profound experience. Set amongst the exquisitely beautiful Costa Rican jungles, I endured the intense purging of past and welcomed the clarity of newfound space. It wrings you out like a towel. Our group was intrinsically powerful and connected, which only manifested further in ceremony. Not only are you hyper aware of their energies, but also are reaffirmed of the unified consciousness that threads all of us together.

My intention was to unfold my highest self. Shortly after sipping the sacred brew, I was blasted into the cosmos bringing a new perspective to every inch of my reality. Gently yet powerfully, the medicine taught me about the flow of the universe and my place in it. She illuminated my need to trust myself and provided clarity on my path to doing so.

I feel reborn from this ceremony. I can see again. Everything is alive and I am awakened. Thank you Gustavo, Chiara, Amber and Daniel for preparing me and supporting me during this epic awakening – I am forever grateful to have crossed your paths and will be back soon! Thank you, thank you!”

– Aiyana, 27, Pheonix, Arizona

“The ceremony and entire experience at Posada Natura has completely changed my life forever! Never have I felt more at home with a group of ‘strangers’ (for lack of a better term) in a place that I have never visited. Before this, I was a complete introvert living a fear-based life and holding on to so much emotional baggage. I was scared to interact with people in general, let alone share all of my emotions and feelings.

Since this experience, I’m functioning at optimal levels every day. I don’t get stressed out. My mind has also slowed down so much that I feel as if I’m actually living my life for the first time in 34 years! All of this with an even greater connection to mother nature too! It’s unbelievable!

It was difficult when first arriving back to the states. I knew the day after the ceremony that I didn’t want to leave. There are so many things to learn. I have this undeniable pull to come back for more ceremonies and to be around great company in such a magical setting. I have since continued my vegetarian diet, and have entirely stopped all my medications and old habits that no longer serve me. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again very soon!”

– Rourke, 34, Georgia

“This was the most powerful and healing week of my life thus far. I had no idea I was holding onto so much trauma and pain until I faced it within ceremony and was able to let it go. The organic meals have been incredible, the emotional support excellent, and rooms super comfortable. I have been battling with an addiction to alcohol and cocaine for about 5 years now and I am on the path to full recovery now thanks to plant medicine and my experiences here in Costa Rica.

My time enjoyed with the Posada staff family has felt like a complete home coming. A home coming to myself, my connection to nature and the universe at large. I had never been to the rainforest before, or even left my home country. I now deeply understand why its so important to respect and protect this sacred land. I feel vibrant, whole, peaceful and see with completely new eyes. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

-John McBride, 42, Sydney, Australia
