    Local Communities

    Our engagement in local communities:

    Miracle Mineral Solution Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS) is in many ways the most impactful intervention that we have yet implemented for the health of the local communities. The results are nothing short of miraculous and this product has allowed ourselves to thrive for many years in a heavily polluted environment. Now we are in a position to share the benefits of this product with those that are most in need. Elevating the health of the community is probably the most empowering action one can accomplish. Too much energy has been spent fighting common illnesses within disempowered communities. Once optimization of one’s health is obtained then solutions can be pursued to manage many of the other problems that face the people’s of the Amazon. Video testimonials to come! Reforestation & Food Forest Initiative Not to long ago there was an abundance of food available to those that lived in harmony with the Amazon. Limiting and competitive ideas introduced by western culture have created a separation from people and their land and basic needs. Food is at the core of everyone’s survival, and should not be withheld for monetary gain. The concept of creating a food cooperative free of charge will bring the mindset back to one of sharing with the community. The literal fruits of this labor will directly benefit the community free of charge and will empower the community by providing the ability to plant and maintain areas of land in our sanctuary for food production.

      Nimea Kaya is an incredible gift I gave myself. As my world was turning a new leaf, I sprung up from beneath the earth sprouting new life over the course of nine days working with this incredible plant teacher, while in the care of Jill and Casey and all of the beautiful souls that facilitated my retreat. I entered into a new way of life for myself in the moment I landed on Nimea Kaya’s doorstep. I am so happy to have found the center and the medicine at the time in which I did. Life was very chaotic and difficult in ways that seem like every day stuff popping up, yet for me, I felt like things could really become brighter and feel happier, more whole, balanced and in love everyday, with my own self. Here I was able to find the meaning to this conundrum I placed myself within. After 4 ceremonies with Ayahuasca I found my way through the tunnels of my mind and into the heart of oneness. Seeing a whole new life presented before me, one full of peace, one full of purpose and gifts and new beginnings waiting to be had. I was shown my potential and encouraged to dive into it, by the unique care and attention the staff at Nimea Kaya has. The land, the food, the shamans, the activities, they all helped propel these changes within me and I am so very grateful that today, I have seen such incredible transformations within myself, I too can now help others see the transformations within themselves. I am blessed. Thank you!

      It’s been almost a year since I visited Nimea Kaya and my time there sticks out in my mind as a profoundly unique and valuable experience. So much so that I’m planning to visit again this summer. Given the nature of the experience I didn’t really know what to expect, but all my worries were squashed upon arrival. The staff are warm, welcoming, and make you’re stay there an absolute pleasure. There are numerous activities set up to keep you busy, but also plenty of down time to process your experiences with the medicine. The food was also divine and I felt it’s healing effects very strongly in tandem with the ayahuasca.

      One thing that really struck me was the sheer empathy of all the staff at Nimea Kaya. They completely understand the journey you’re going through because they’ve been there themselves, and they make it 100% about you. I felt especially cared for during the ceremonies. When the medicine is working and things get tough, the staff are always there to help guide you. My time in the jungle showed me a new dimenson of human love and kindness. The medicine itself is powerful, so much so that writing about it will not really do it any justice. But for me the message was clear: ayahuasca is a benelovent teacher who knows more than we can imagine. The ceremonies can be extremely hard work but they are worth it. I also cannot speak highly enough of the shamans at Nimea Kaya. Their presence during the ceremonies was otherwordly. They sung for us throughout the night and sat with us into the morning, giving us the highest degree of care and attention.

      Another aspect of the experience that I valued highly was the opportunity to meet such a wide variety of beautiful, open-minded souls. This phenomenon attracts a wonderfully unique group of interesting people. Everybody on the retreat was extremely friendly and forthcoming, and I regard it as a priviledge to have met them all. Every day was filled with interesting stories and conversations. At no other point in my life have I been surrounded by a group of people whom I resonated so strongly with. I hope I get the chance to see them all again someday. Overall I had an incredible time at Nimea Kaya. The staff, the visitors, the environment, the medicine – all perfect. To anybody considering visiting, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

      • Frank Nimea Kaya Healing Center

        To write about all the beautiful things I experienced at Nimea Kaya would run for several chapters, so I will focus on the most significant event which has led to such profound healing and has literally breathed new life into me. This ‘event’ happened during the first ceremony. I’m guessing it was around 60-90 minutes into the ceremony when the first purge gripped me. I sat upright with waves of hot / cold sweats washing over me. As I wretched over and over it felt like toxins and sickness were being pulled out of me. As the swirling geometric visions intensified I began coughing heavily and felt something large and solid rising up in my throat. It was the size of a walnut and was incredibly hard and painful to cough up. This moment seemed to last a long time but once it was out I drew breath and it was so liberating. My lungs seemed enormous and breathing felt so good! This feeling was accompanied by a vision of my body ridding itself of something unnatural, and a real sense that I had just undergone some physical healing. This was very different and more intense than simply throwing up.

        At this point I should explain that 5 years ago I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease called sarcoidosis. This condition manifests itself in the form of benign tumours, called ‘granulomas’ which form on the lymph nodes of different organs causing inflammation. For me it’s in the lungs and these granulomas cause periodic episodes of chest pain and shortness of breath. My breathing is nearly always impaired to some extent, but during a flare up my lung function can fall as much as 20%, lasting several days or weeks. It’s unpleasant and leaves you feeling drained, tired and unhappy.

        Following this difficult (but liberating) purge I felt so different. At the time I wasn’t able to fully appreciate the change as the medicine had pulled me in another direction and I was working through an outpouring of tears and emotion as I re-lived some mistakes I’d made in my life. This was an equally liberating experience which culminated in the husband & wife Shamans (Agusto & Ercilia) singing their Icarus whilst sucking negative emotions from me. It was beautiful as they washed my fears, guilt and pain away.

        It was only as the medicine began to ease that my focus went back to this apparent healing and how ‘expansive’ my lungs felt. As I sat outside the Maloca looking up at the stars and fire flies I was in awe of my breathing. I could draw the deepest of breaths. It really felt like the inflammatory grip the sarcoidosis had on my lungs had been released. This gave me a sense of freedom and I felt like I could fly! Following that first ceremony I awoke each morning to these wonderful deep breaths which made me cry tears of happiness (& disbelief). I kept thinking, ‘how is this even possible???’. My breathing was clearer than it had been for 10+ years. I felt like I’d been gifted a new pair of lungs and all this from my first Ayahuasca ceremony!

        Over the next 3 ceremonies the medicine was different every time. There’s too much to cover here, but an overarching theme was this profound and tangible connection to nature. The great mystery of consciousness and ‘who we are’ seemed to unravel itself and I was offered glimpses of the fabric of the infinite universe that we’re all a part of. This hard to describe “vibration” resonated with everyone at the retreat and brought us all together. By the third ceremony, 17 total strangers had become good friends. There was an abundance of love and support as we went into those last two ceremonies.

        I can’t sign off without expressing just how amazing the people are at Nimea Kaya. Jill & Casey have created a sanctuary in Nimea Kaya. I can’t imagine a more genuine, loving and safe environment to drink Ayahuasca. The facilitators, Sylvie, Winter, Kristina and David were absolutely awesome. The guidance and support they provide before, during and after each ceremony was tremendous (incredible massages!). We couldn’t have done it without you guys. The Shipibo staff were so warm and welcoming. Massive respect to the kitchen crew for producing such tasty and nutritious food. Last but certainly not least, a thousand thanks to Shaman’s Orlando, Agusto & Ercilia. The beauty and wonder of your Icarus was like nothing I’ve ever heard…. a winding stream of medicinal song. This ancient music appears to be intrinsically linked to nature and the healing work performed by the Shaman.

        Six months later and I’m still in awe of the powerful visions and healing I experienced and witnessed. The key thing I learnt from my first Ayahuasca ceremonies is that magic is real! My lungs and breathing are still feeling fantastic!

          Hola Mis Amores!
          It was has been almost 3 months since visiting the place and souls of Nimea Kaya. I’m still standing at the threshold of the door that Madre Ayahuasca opened for me, but I feel myself taking the first steps through, beginning with this; my long awaited review! Being a twenty-two year old, small, yet spiritually independent woman, I had to find a safe and comfortable place to travel by myself for my first time out of the country.
          It started after watching a Joe Rogan podcast that featured the author Graham, whom explained Ayahuasca’s influence on him in writing his fictitious renditions of the Spanish conquest of the Mexica. Being a creative writing student at the time, I initially thought this was the experience I was looking for that could help me solidify what I wanted to do in my own writing endeavors, So, after reaching out to Graham via Facebook, he provided me list of a couple retreats, but when I saw Nimea Kaya’s women retreat happening in three months; I didn’t even think of how I was going to cover the cost of my stay and air fare, I just filled out the application and hit send.
          Everything happened so fast after that. The women that would soon change my life contacted me within a few hours. They explained everything to me, from the cost of my stay to air fare, and I began to fear I would never be able to raise/ get $4000 dollars with no job and college hanging over my head; but there is nothing our Earth Mother can’t do. Without a question of where or why I was going to Peru, my father came to me asking if there was anything I wanted for my birthday, and then agreed to pay the entire amount of my trip and then some. So, I withdrew myself from college and made the two-week long trip to Peru with every intention of going back to school once I returned.
          If you want to read more about my personal journey, you can check out my blog here: http://vine2wire.blogspot.com/
          As I have learned more about myself in those two-weeks then I could have in my entire lifetime, from all the beautiful souls I met to their words I still carry in my head, I will never again take my gifts and the things I have for granted.
          Nimea Kaya was beautiful, and even though it’s just a short bike-taxi from the airport, you feel secluded and safe after the hike into the heart of the retreat. They have three dogs and a two cats on the property that immediately made me feel right at home. I was met with hugs and warm smiles from all the staff, that were all women, special for our visit; kicking all their male staff out. 😛 Our retreat was to last two-weeks with five ceremonies in total. Our ceremonies didn’t happen until after the first few days, which I was grateful for, and only two happened one after the other. Besides our dieta and Ayahuasca, no other plant medicines were given, but they did provided a number of bodily healing services. From massage to DNA activation, they were the best I had ever received. But, in case you wanting something negative to look at, they don’t have hot water, and I am thankful that they didn’t. It has made me relish every hot water bath ever since. 🙂
          I have plans to return to Nimea Kaya again in the near future, after receiving the message that Ayahuasca needs to heal my mother, as well. I can’t wait to return to my home away from home in La Florida as I look forward to the next steps in my journey. So long to the fictitious inspiration I thought I was going to receive, when instead I achieved the inconceivable, for an attempt to do the impossible; so now, with Pachamama’s inspiration, I know nothing is so. <3

          • Tim Clark Nimea Kaya Healing Center

            Nimea kaya is a wonderful retreat center! I was welcomed with by Sylvie’s and winter’s joyful spitits. Everything at the center is great.The food is prepared with love and huge smiles each day by the beautiful women cooking our food. The facilitators Casey and Jill are bright and extraordinary spirited human beings. The shamans are amazing it is so great to know that some are holding this life as sacred as it always is. As well having them guide you by singing the icaros which is essential for the journey and Madre aya translated into English an icaro being sang to me in this beautiful voice of an angel.Our bedrooms were very comfortable, but the mosquito nets will either keep em out our close em in so watch out! The greatest place is the where all the magic and purging happens. It is here where I truly see now everybody naked and as one. We all share the same bodily,emotional and spiritual paths from the strengths and doubts, we have walked the same path as another because we have been and are here exactly where we all are because we are one. Our physical connection is especially noticed when you share a room fifteen people purging!my time there meeting madre aya is felt so deeply within spiritually and continues to direct me each day. I know now that I didn’t know as much as I thought I did but now know more knowing this, that I don’t know as much today that I will tomorrow. I am eternally grateful for the work done by everybody here.

              I visited Nimea Kaya Healing Center in february 2013 – I did not participate in any ceremonies, but I had a very good impression of the place. The staff seams trustworthy and it is located in truly amazing jungle surroundings! Some of the staff are American and very kind.
