Sacred Plant Medicine

ancient wisdom, modern world.


If you’ve discovered this page, it is likely that the Medicine is already calling to you.  We thank you for following the call!  We are living in a time when the wisdom of these plants is needed more than ever and your intentions for self healing are the catalyst for healing on a global scale.  If you have never experienced a ceremony with this Medicine, you may have some questions.  Know that we are here to support your journey from the very beginning and we encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.  We are more than happy to hear from you.  Until then, you can read our  FAQ.

There was a time not so long ago when a seeker of this Medicine had to travel for weeks through the steaming jungles of the Amazon, fending off crocodiles and anacondas to finally meet the one they called “Shaman”.  Nowadays, anyone with an internet connection and a credit card can have a bottle sent to their doorstep with overnight delivery.  While it is certainly amazing that the healing benefits of this ancient Medicine have become so easily accessible, there is (with good reason) a growing concern regarding the integrity and safety of modern day ceremonies.  As with many things, growth in popularity often gives rise to corruption.

At Posada Natura, we are deeply committed to holding our ceremonies to the highest standard of integrity.  While we hold great respect for the indigenous traditions of the Amazon, the reality is that most of our ceremony participants are not indigenous peoples.  They are people living in cities, suburbs, working normal jobs and facing a set of challenges that seems to be unique to the modern age.  We aim to create a space where we can address those challenges together, working to restore our connection to Spirit so that we may live our lives fully, happily, and in harmony with our Mother Earth.

Ayahuasca-21-1The plants we use in our brew are harvested sustainably from the jungles of Peru and proceeds directly support the indigenous peoples of those lands.  The sacred brew is produced in small, handmade batches that are crafted with respect for the environment and infused with love, song, and generations of indigenous wisdom.  Our ceremony facilitators will gently guide your journey with care, presence, and a wealth of experience that will insure your wellbeing every step of the way.

Posada’s facilitators are trained in both Colombian and Peruvian traditions and have extensive training in their respective spiritual disciplines.  Our ceremonies are culturally inclusive and nobody will be treated as a foreigner.  Together we find our common ground, opening our hearts through song, sincere prayer, and peaceful celebration.

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!”

“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!”

“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.”
