Ayahuasca Retreat Centers by Country

Aya. Spirit Vine. Yagé. Daime. Vine of the Soul. La Medicina.

However you call her, an encounter with Mother Ayahuasca can be among the most profound, mystical, meaningful, and healing experiences of a lifetime. Sometimes quite difficult or painful, the aya journey is not for the faint of heart, but is often deeply rewarding and personally insightful.

Across several Central and South American countries ayahuasca is regarded as sacred medicine by native peoples, and has been traditionally used for millennia in a ceremonial setting.

Only in modern times has the larger outside world been introduced to this powerful psychotropic brew. Many ayahuasca retreats have been established to bring this awakening, healing modality to visitors from beyond the Amazon. At this moment in history it is serving as an important ally in healing individuals and shifting global consciousness – the planet desperately needs this.

At Journey Aya we’re creating the most comprehensive list of safe ayahuasca retreat centers on the internet – it’s a work in progress.

Organized by country, each ayahuasca retreat has been screened for negative participant reviews reporting abuse or malicious business practices. Please inform us if any of our information is not current.
