What others say about Acsauhaya
My experience at Acsauhaya was life changing! I felt so connected with my group even though we were complete strangers just a few days ago. Rene and Sophia were so accommodating as facilitators to the ceremonies and they both were in tune with providing every possible thing that the group needed.
This is a perfect location, surrounded by sounds of nature, and the ceremony yurt creates a perfect environment for this experience. I would highly recommend acsauhaya to anyone who is ready for this experience!
The sleeping accommodations were comfortable and the food was delicious fresh and healthy!
I loved it that Asencia and Santos, the shamans, gave each member individual healing during the ceremony. The music we listened to after the ceremony was perfect for putting me at ease and allowing me to reflect
Sophia and Rene made sure that everyone was accompanied when leaving the ceremony yurt, and they were there to help with any concern.Stephen
It was a beautiful experience surrounded by inspiring people. The experience was very personal and introspective, yet simultaneously shared and collecting. In many ways it feels like a rebirth, and I am excited to return to normal life with a new found vibrancy. The healing process has begun!

All the ayahuasca experiences, the setup and the environment were perfect to help me figure my whole life, cleanse me and get me on my path towards fulfilling my purpose. Thank you Acsauhaya!
The food was very good and healthy. The place is located in a very green area, where you feel totally connected to nature and give you peace.
The shaman was amazing! Very experienced and totally dedicated to lead each one of us real healing. The ceremonies were a very well thought of, and the last day sound healing cereomny helped me recover from the overwhelming experience and ground back to earthly reality.Nicolae
Wow – what a journey! and it’s only just begun. It’s been amazing, life changing! I highly recommend, especially with the wonderful shaman Asencia.
The setting is ideal, nature surrounds you and make you feel tranquil. The whole experience is very well thought of – THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Each person here benefited in their own individual way, and got personal attention from the shaman, both in the ceremonies and in the group sharing sessions, specific to their own issues and reasons for coming hereKathryn
The Acsauhaya team is just wonderful, highly professional, experienced, passionate and showing a constant, attentive, loving and caring presence, creating a completely safe environment for the retreat. The ceremonies were as safe as they were powerful and extremely well guided.
Although I felt like having already been in the places she took me, Ayahuasca appeared to be a incredible door opener; opening the senses, the heart, the soul, ways to the unconscious, the mind and individual consciousness for what appeared to be, a deep personal experience, towards a sense of universal love and consciousness in a collective approach.
I was amazed and am deeply grateful to mother ayahuasca for having let me lived and experienced which was for me, beautiful psychic journeys through consciousness time, space and sound. The ability of the plant and its spirit to show us what we have to see at that time on the physical, emotional, psychological, intellectual, energetic and spiritual levels was an incredible revelation. The group dynamic happening during the week was also a very interesting; witnessing the diversity of everyone’s experience evolving day by day was for me a great source of learning. Witnessing how mother ayahuasca and the retreat process was progressively and lovingly working on everyone was in that sense amazing, showing how this medicine can trigger strong insights with an accurate efficiency. During the ceremonies, music was also and obviously a cosmic gift; actually I’ve always been felling this way about sound and music… While Ronald drumming and singing moments were opening many doors to me and helping me connect deeply and merging with the spiritual world, Chai’s beautiful guitar playing was bringing sonic showers of light and love. Beautiful.
Please read in these words with my entire humility and gratitude along with my deep happiness of being one of the breathing particles of this cosmic structure, just as every single element composing the harmony of the universe. I can say that I come out of this retreat with many elements that will (and are already) for sure bring many positive insights and perspectives in my personal, spiritual and professional life and researches.
The rhythm of the week was also perfect; ceremonies in the evening, group sharing in the morning and time to meditate, walk and play music in between.Gilles
This experience has been one of the most profound things I have ever done in my life, and will stay with me for this whole lifetime. Thank you Acsauhaya!
I can here without expectation but the experience somehow surpassed anything I could have thought of. The team was amazing, they created an atmosphere of safety, vulnerability, openness and love. The live music in the ceremonies was incredible.
The facilities are exactly what is needed. You have the right amount of space that allows personal time and sharing space. The food was great. The Yurt was the perfect space for the ceremonies. The shaman was incredible and created a safe, yet vulnerable space to give in and surrender. The guides were incredible and guided us perfectly through our individual journeys to help us discover ourselves and answer personal questions.
Music- IT WAS TRULY INCREDIBLE . Shai’s music releases emotions and heals, making you feel safe and calm. The music “battle” between the shaman and Shai is what got me to work on myself and find answers. TRULY BEAUTIFUL!Mosh
The team and the process was amazing, I always felt safe and supported. The medicine gave me deep insights into my inner workings and I feel they will help me on my way to a happier, richer and more meaningful life!
The rooms and the facilities were great, the surroundings of the retreat are calm and make you feel close to nature. The food was good and healthy, served at the right times and felt very satisfying.
The staff made me feel very safe and supported. they were very knowledgeable , and great musicians too! The space they have created in the ceremony tent was warm, welcoming and safe.Martin
My overall experience has been very positive. I met amazing people I became very close with after a short amount of time. The journeys were hard at times, but I learned a lot about myself and I am so happy to have had the courage to come here. I would definitely come again.
The facilities were great. It feels like you are home, with beautiful rooms and showers in an old dutch farmhouse. The food was great also, Healthy vegan meals and plenty of options for breakfast.
The ceremonies were beautiful. Ronald, the shaman, did an amazing job at guiding us and the team was always there to give us support.Mara
My overall experience is amazing. At the first ceremony I cried a lot and I heard myself really loud in my head. Before I came here I had a rock in my stomach, but when I saw all the people I have hurt (in my journey), I understood that the rock was my guilt for all the I have done. I kept saying to myself that I have to apologize these people. Realizing this made my rock go away. I felt so free. Going through this, ad other things I saw and understood with myself, felt so good and healing, with all the support and guidance from the Acsauhaya team. Thank you!
The facilities were very good. My room was cozy and nice. Very clean and beautiful, relaxing. The food was great!
The location is great, surrounded by nature, with a lot of space. The shaman was amazing, very down to earth, and funny as well! Very wise. The live music in the ceremonies was AMAZING! thank you all for that! The guidance by the team was amazing.
Both the ceremony Yurt and the house felt really good. I felt that I was in good hands and I could be both with other people and with myself. I felt very safe and open during the ceremonies and the sharing sessions.
Thank you for healing me! This is really a priceless experience that has helped me so much!Jeanette
The overall experience at Acsauhaya felt like the best of both worlds. The ceremonies were healing, and I got from them exactly what I needed. I received clarity on issues I needed to solve and answers to questions I had. When things got hard and I felt lost, I was guided by Roland (the Shaman), and was lifted by Shai’s beautiful music. Sofia guided me on how to move forward in my journey and I felt so much safety and compassion from the presence of Malinda and Rene. The team are here to give guidance exactly when we needed.
The comfort I felt while being here is hard to put into words. It is more than what I could have hoped for and exactly what was needed.
The way the ceremonies are performed here at Acsauhaya allowed me to go through the journey in a way where I could face my demons and deal with hard, dark truths but in a gentle way. Ronald as a shaman always kept me grounded, gently helping me.
It really felt like our safety was the highest priority of the team. whenever I felt uneasy, there was always one of the team members by my side. No matter how hard things got I always felt safe.Amal
Wow! I recieved so much love, and re-experienced my birth. Mother ayahuasca was so gentle and loving, and gave me all the care and love that I was lacking in my childhood.
I felt that my journey was very specific and personal, I could really connect…A lot of things were revealed about me.I had lots of realizations and acceptance.
My last day was about giving away my anxiety and it was very very scary but at the same time it brought me so much relief. Miracles are happening here!
The food was amazing! the location felt very sacred. The team is incredible. I was guided and helped so much. Sophia was my hero and I don’t know how I would have made it without her. The shaman was great, I really connected with his music. Shai’s guitar playing touched me deep in the soul and helped me to heal!
The Acsauhaya team made me feel completely safe. I couldn’t ask for more. I always felt that I am being looked after, especially in the harder times. You are doing an amazing job!Leva
Having arrived without knowing what to expect, and feeling nervous and anxious, I was immediately put at ease. Everything the team did to keep the process moving was beautifully organized, yet very relaxed. The ceremonies themselves were beautiful, and the experience was unique and truly profound. I will always be grateful for my visit here, and would 100% recommend a visit.
The farmhouse is simple and very comfortable. The food was delicious and fresh. The ceremony yurt was really special. I felt very much at home.
The ceremonies were calm, supportive, joyous and uplifting. The shaman guided me to connect and fully immerse in my journey.
The team made sure that we were all held in an environment which made me feel 100% safe. It felt very warm and open.Jack
An amazing journey. The fear and anxieties I had were overcome through the support, care and attention given from the team in the ceremonies, as well as before and after. I feel that I have a clear and powerful understanding of how Ayahuasca helped to heal my body.
The facilities were very cozy and clean. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean, kitchen facilities were also great. The food was amazing! Thank you so much for taking care of my dietary needs.
Every ceremony was different. I felt very connected to Ayahuasca, to the shaman, the live music and the people around me. The music, both the Shaman’s Icaros and the guitar music were magical at these moments. It was very beautiful
The support I felt from the staff was great. Their understanding of our process and acceptance of whatever we needed allowed me to be open about my fears and I felt that it was safe to talk about all of it. This was a big change for me as I often struggle with asking for help or involving others in my problems. Their support was amazing. Thank you!Lisa
Absolutely amazing! I feel like a different, and much happier and calmer person now. There were ups and downs during the ceremonies themselves but this was a beautiful part of the process. The team was wonderful and supportive in every way. They made me feel very safe and heard, and if I needed anything I only had to ask. It was a perfect experience and I would not change a thing.
The food was so healthy and yummi. The facilities are nice and comfortable. You can choose to socialize or to have space and be by yourself in different places in the facility. There was always some food available if you were hungry at non-meal times as well.
The music in the ceremonies was beautiful – I can’t wait for the soundtrack! Guidance could not have been more helpful. So much love and support from every person in the staff.
I felt completely safe. It felt like if I needed anything I only had to ask
I have no doubt that this place will heal so many people! It was a beautiful experience and for those who feel called, I highly recommend itShannon
The ayahuasca journeys were complex and difficult. they were about deep personal development. Ayahuasca showed me my life in a clear & unconfused way. Ayahuasca taught me many lessons, over and over again, showing me where my pride & arrogance were hurting other people and myself, showing me how to be honest with myself, and behave in a more kind way.
The Acsauhaya team is amazing! loving and caring. The live music during ceremonies was amazing. The food was healthy and good. Thank you!Eugene

It was mind blowing! A mixture of spiritual, emotional and physical experience. Even when I felt very physically sick throughout the second ceremony, I could feel the Ayahuasca working on me and healing me on deep, cellar level! The other ceremonies were filled with love, forgiveness and acceptance.
After the difficult purging I was lifted so high, and my body felt super light. I was free from pain, free from suffering, anxiety and fear. I experienced complete peace, light and bliss.
The food was fresh and delicious. The location in nature is beautiful and spacious. The Yurt was the perfect place to experience Ayahuasca, and the music from Ronald the shaman, and Shai the guitarist, was magical. The guidance during ceremonies was perfect!Nicky
Transformative and frightening (but in a good way).
Soul destroying and rebuilding. I feel a much needed freedom! I can now feel emotions again. I cried tears of joy for the first time in my life. Reborn
The food was fresh and made with much love. All of the team members were so patient and compassionate. True magicians. Everything was perfect. I am humbledRich
I loved the shaman Ronald! He felt to me totally dedicated, involved, loving and also gave such wise and usable feedback, and what a voice! I love him
The environment in Acsauhaya felt completely relaxed , generous and non judgmental. It was perfect for me.
The food has been perfect, tasty, healthy and always available
I’m leaving this place with so much love and deep heartfelt gratitudeMargaret
The experience was life changing. I came here feeling lost, struggling to be happy within myself. I was always overthinking. not anymore! Ayahuasca has taught me to love and care for myself and be more open and loving to others. I won’t touch another cigarette again! We only have one body, one chance on this planet and I need to make the most out of it, instead of slowly killing myself, stressing myself and thinking about the past and the future. From now on I will just live in the present moment.
The facilities were great, beautiful house and garden, very peaceful. The food was fantastic! especially the soups from Malinda! Everything was very healthy and delicious.
The ceremonies were out of this world. The yurt was beautiful and well crafted, it created the perfect space to go on the ayahuasca journey. Ronald the shaman was fantastic, I had total trust in him, his energy was great. he seemed like the happiest man on the planet, always laughing and smiling. His music was also tremendous, it took you on a magical journey through your mind which got pretty intense at times. The music from Shai and Malinda was something else, it took you to these heavenly places.
Throughout my stay at Acsauhaya, there was not a single time where I was concerned about my safety or the safety of the others who were journeying with me. The team was very supportive and kind, and created an environment of trust.
My 5 days here have been some of the best days of my life! I have met some fantastic people who I hope to stay in touch with!Chris
An emotional roller coaster, with a compassionate and loving atmosphere from everybody in the Acsauhaya team. I have never felt so much at home before!
I have learned so much about myself, the illusions in my mind and from everybody here. this journey has opened my heart! 🙂
Ronald (the Shaman) is a genuinely caring and compassionate person who is very much in tune with how everybody is feeling and knows hot to guide us through the journey.
The live music during the ceremonies was amazing! Shai is so talented on the guitar and Malinda’s voice is angelic.
The food was amazing and inspired me to become vegetarian and to learn to cook and make soups like you guys. The house and facilities are perfect, I could have lived here for the rest of my life!Ben
What I experienced is beyond anything I can put into words!
I have never felt so much love and I feel humble and honored to have done this experience with such beautiful group of people.
Acsauhaya is the real deal, no need to go to the Amazon! the shaman from Peru was authentic and had the power and presence which made me feel as if I was in the jungle. his voice and Icaros were so powerful and will stay with me forever.
Most importantly, I felt safe at all times, the care and attention from Ronald watching over us, guiding us and listening to our sharing was priceless.
Malinda and Shai are pure love, their care and attention for each of us is very special. their love will be with me forever. Shai’s guitar playing is a heaven’s gift and the combination of the Shaman’s drums and Icaros and Shai’s guitar is an experience not to be missed. Malinda’s voice is of an angel , the combination of all of these made me feel is if they were singing my story.
I felt safe 100% of the time. Rene is very caring and all the time have an eye on us and was checking that I am ok. Sofia helped me so much when I was having emotionally hard times, I am forever grateful for her for making me feel safe and reassuring I would be ok.Astrid
First of all, many thanks to the entire Acsauhaya team for this wonderful experience. My gratitude is hard to express in words. I wish everyone could once experience what I was allowed to experience in my ceremony. It’s like a gateway to paradise for those that dare to look, open and pass through it.
For me, the Acsauhaya team consists of pioneers of change, whose work is global and can lead our world to a better place. This work can not be appreciated enough. You have to experience a ceremony for yourself in order to be able to assess the significance of this experience.
The whole retreat is well thought out and organized from arrival to departure. The team and everything else is very well matched and coordinated and my whole stay was a pleasure. I always had the feeling that the organizers know what they are doing. They were relaxed and focused in every situation. This is certainly a result of the many years of experience of René and the shaman.
Ronald, the shaman, is a warm-hearted, relaxed and friendly person. He really wants to help and meet people at eye level. I felt I could really let go, trust and open me for the experience, which is generally quite difficult for me.
If I had to describe the ceremonies in one word, I would say: magical. I have experienced and seen so many incredible things in the yurt. It was like another world full of joy, magic and adventure. I have experienced profound healing and have been liberated from a depression and anxieties that I have suffered from for years. For which I am eternally grateful. I wish the team of Acsauhaya much success and wide distribution, so that as many people as possible can enjoy their work.Johannes
It was a very progressive, purifying experience. The organizers were very friendly and attentive. The music was wonderful. The shaman was very approachable. He is a warm ayahuasquero with a big heart! He made an effort to listen to everybody.
I saw so many visions , at the end I saw a universe of love numbers, colors and vibrations.
The group dynamic was warm and supportive. the experience made me appreciate people and nature in a complete different way
The house is very nice as is the land around it. The yurt is very nice in terms of design. the food was superb!
The music and singing played by Shai and Malinda was soothing to the group. you could feel the love coming from them.Basil
Rene and his whole team were amazing, giving so much love and trust and made me feel comfortable straight away
There was no ego around and I could learn a lot from their behavior for my own personal development.
The food was great!
The tent was creating a magic atmosphere. The combination of the Shaman’s Icaros and Shai’s guitar music was leading me to focus on different areas perfectly.
Ayahuasca is a medicine that helps you to face your problems and fears much deeper than with a normal psychologist. I got many answers to my questions and will never want to miss that experienceDaniel
Mother Ayahuasca has re-birthed me as a whole person. I will be forever grateful for this experience. I now feel at peace, at last, and excited for the future.
The Shaman was really humble and beautiful person. He was very knowledgeable of what everyone was going through. His energy was powerful in every ceremony. He had so much enthusiasm even after 25 years of doing this. He made time to speak to everyone who wanted to speak to him privately which was lovely.
This retreat setting is beautiful and peaceful. The house gives enough room to hangout with the group and places to go to if you need time to be on your own and process. The food was really amazing and made with love!Mary
Doing Ayahuasca is always an intense and fulfilling experience, and I feel it is very important that it is done in a safe place with qualified people taking care of you, especially for those drinking Ayahuasca for the first time. Rene and his Acsauhaya team provide an excellent environment and the presence of a shaman in the ceremony definitely makes a difference, as he is channeling the healing spirit of Ayahuasca and focuses on the people who need extra help.
To me, the basis of Ayahuasca (or any spiritual practice) is letting go of the ego control, increasingly trusting God/ Higher Power, and removing the obstacles to harmony and Love. In the time after the weekend experience, I feel the difference in being ever more relaxed and confident about life. So thank you!
The food was prepared with a lot of love , The place is very specious, and one has enough space to spend time in quiet if needed. The staff, and especially Rene were helping a lot, providing a strong masculine energy that made the group feel safe.
The shaman, staff and place feels are totally loving and caring. This made me feel safe and allowed me to face the darkest, weakest parts of me.
All the participants were really respected and taken care of whenever they needed.
The Acsauhaya team is very professional and always knew what to do.The live music in the ceremonies was amazing. Food was always available and was delicious and healthy.
The shaman was really with us, he connected with all of the participants personally and was very helpful and reassuring.
The communication with the team and the other participants was very open and strong, and was a big part of the retreat.
The house is bright and welcoming. The garden is beautiful as well.
Life changing! I am going home as someone completely transformed. I want to live again but a healthy lifestyle that I am so looking forward to.
It’s like I am seeing everything for the first time again, appreciating small things in nature, wanting to share the new me with family & friends. I am so happy & amazed that I feel so good and am now scared of drugs and just want to be me.
I cannot speak highly enough about this place, the staff feels like family.they cook the food with their hearts. the facility and location is amazing and beautiful. I am enjoying food I would never normally eat. I am very sad to say goodbye to this place and the people working here.
The ceremonies were beautiful and felt very trusting. I had a hard experience for the first two ceremonies, the third was bliss and laughter. But it was exactly what I needed as I have been so close to death so many times.
I don’t think I have ever felt more safe that as I did here, as I found the first 2 ceremonies hard. There was always one of the staff with me, holding me, reassuring me, speaking comfort into my ears or even just being silent and holding me until I was ok.
The team have put so much thought into the care of the participants here. You can feel it was all done with so much love from their hearts. It feels so good here that you don’t want to leave. I wouldn’t change a thing and I wish this place and the staff big success as they deserve it because they truly want to help the people that come here.
A very humbling experience, the group had come from many different backgrounds to look for many different answers.
In the process of healing ourselves we supported each other through our journey with ayahuasca and many magical moments happened that will stay with me forever.
The location is beautiful , the shaman was definitely genuine and experienced, and really understood each participant as an individual and gave guidance when it was needed.
The team members were always in the right pace at the right time.
I wouldn’t change a thing. Perfect!
Hello Rene, thank you soooooo much. The ceremony DRAMATICALLY changed me and returned me back! Such deep depression completely destroyed me. Especially last half year, when I lost all hope to ever come out of it. I wasn’t alive… For years I forgot feelings, state of soul – how to be out of depression. If I compare this to the new me now, I realize how deep I was in this critical depression.
During the ceremony I had to fight, it was a tough process. But it is NOTHING – now I see what I have NOW! I am free from everything now, what I carried in myself for a while. You gave me a new life!
My back… Ever since the ceremony no pain at all!!! Wow!! Thank you and Mother Ayahuasca for healing me inside my body!
In a short time you and all the people I met in your house became so close for me – like family. I have received unbelievable support, care and love from you all!!! Was very sad leaving you… Miss you!!Angela
Very deep experience, extremely visual. The experience was challenging mentally and emotionally and the organizers were very supportive, helpful and reassuring, during the whole retreat.
Ronald was amazing in guiding the ceremonies with his music and singing. He helped me feel relaxed, let go and go very deep in the the ayahuasca experience.
