"My experience was absolutely beautiful, I’ve never felt so much at peace in my entire life. For the entire duration of the ceremony, I felt as though I was being showered with love. Just as a balloon is pumped with air, I felt as though I was being pumped with love. Key parts of this were through meditating, the intelligent intuition of Mario, and the power of the music and the meaning behind it. The music and prayer really touched me. I cried when I needed to cry, and laughed when I couldn’t do anything else but that. I felt completely supported, safe, was brought clarity, and most importantly, brought healing in ways that I am still discovering days in the following days. I am super grateful to Mario and Dave for everything they have done for me. I met them as a stranger, and they treated me like family from the moment that I met them. If your gut is giving you slight hints that this is an experience that calls you, I pray that you have an opportunity to go through an experience that I was lucky enough to be a part of. Thank you guys so much, much love ❤️"


"Mario and Carolina are so deeply dedicated to being of service to this plant that their love is truly felt throughout the process. They take their time to connect with you, educate and explain this transformative journey from start to finish. Their art deeply moved me as they showered us with sounds and smells to help guide the experience in a positive and gentle way. Ayaheusca changed my life forever and I am grateful to the Shaman for his expertise. I definitely recommend anyone seeking a profound healing experience to connect with Sowa Nete!"

"Nothing that I say could ever make justice to how wonderful this experience was. I feel beyond privileged to have been part of this beautiful experience. I remember thinking in the ceremony about how much practice, how much work and love has been put in order to give us this experience. These people are experts at what they do and they will give you a memory that you will want to cherish for the rest of your life. On top of that, they managed to make me feel so comfortable, they made me feel like we were family. They were so patient, understanding and loving towards me. I can never say enough good things about this retreat, but words will never make it justice."
