A kinda big claim that, Jim and Manny did though, they facilitated the healing that was such a major part of me climbing out of fear, anxiety and depression. Before I flew there The first time (Feb 2019) I didn’t want to live anymore. This was my second visit. In 2019 I went for 4 weeks. 9 days with friends in 2020 which really, I didn’t feel I i was desperate for but friends were going and why not I though. I got rid of a lot of deep rooted pain this time. I value Jim and what he says very highly, he’s helped me tremendously in many ways in between sessions. Manny is also a beautiful Ayahuascaro. A formidable team they are together. Words are futile in expressing my gratitude to them walking this path. And now, I walk my own, helping people with my own gifts that I’m enjoying letting evolve, I have purpose, I have a smile, and I don’t feel I need medicine to maintain that, in fact I can almost feel Aya wishes this for the foreseeable. Amazing place that will always be close to my heart. P-S I bought the blanket that kept me safe from my first ceremony from Jim, it remains my favourite ever possession 😂

For my 3-weeks ayahuasca retreat I had been looking for an experienced centre where I would be safe and taken care of. It was my first experience of this kind and I was quite nervous about it. Jim and his team were a great support, offering advice and always having an open ear to listen. I soon felt that I was in very good hands, with highly experienced people and that there was nothing to be afraid of. After completing the retreat, I knew even more than before how important it is choose the right place. Thank you for this great experience and the gift that I took home! The place is beautiful and big. The huts are comfortable and provide privacy. And the food is good!

Embarking on this journey, particularly for a first-timer, is quite daunting. Flying 40 hours across the other side of the world to a first time experience as this offered by Jim and his team at Hummingbird takes a little consideration. I had no idea what was in store. And I couldn’t have been in better hands for my 14-day experience. The space provided by Jim really is second to none. The property is so beautiful. Tucked right in there among the Amazon. You are a part of probably the most amazing ecosystem on earth - beautiful by day, and buzzing with life at night. It’s an extremely safe space created by Jim, Shaman Manain, and all the staff employed in support. Safety was most important for me, particularly considering the healing work - ceremonies. Both Jim and Manain are in full control of the space and the delivery of the ceremonies. It is comforting to know and allows you to embrace the full experience of your own healing journey. I have seen and experienced nothing like the ceremonies. They are orchestrated incredibly professionally from start to finish. It’s indescribable. Better than a west end show, and I’ve seen a few. True professionals. Three full, healthy meals prepared each day. Varied on days of ceremonies and San Pedro. Dieters available - of which I experienced 8 days. Still, meals are ample in size and filling. Well planned and providing enough energy to embrace the activities provided. Jim is always, always on hand in support 24/7. It’s amazing how hands-on Jim is. Constant care and attention, while seamlessly allowing space as required. All accommodations are ample. More private rooms tucked a little further away into the jungle are just perfect for privacy and the environment. If you know in yourself it is time to experience these healings, I can not recommend Hummingbird Healing Center enough. It’s an amazing property, ideally located in close enough proximity to Iquitos airport, which for me after travelling so far was a boon, though far enough away from civilisation to never see or hear it - or be reminded of it. And most of all, a team of very special people, proving the space and tools to be blessed, time and time again.

I have visited the retreat for the first time back in 2017 for the 12 days program. It was quite difficult to decide with so many options out there, but shortly after my arrival, I understood that indeed I had chosen the best possible place. Jim and the whole crew were nothing short of amazing! Extremely helpful and carrying in guiding everyone through their own journey. My personal experience with Mother Ayahuasca was quite tough, but that had to do with my own self-acceptance, ego and self-love which I haven't given to myself all those prior years. As my work with the medicine wasn't' complete, I have decided to visit the retreat once again this March. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus international restrictions, I had to cancel my trip in the last moment. Jim was extremely understanding and returned my full payment straight away, without any hesitation. Really good-hearted people! I totally recommend this place! :)
