I went here in 2015 and just returned in September 2018. The volunteer staff was better this time and the shamans who did the San Pedro ceremonies were better this time. There was some new construction which made the place a little bit more attractive,...More
Experienced, organized folks doing good work while helping guide you through the plant medicine process. I felt safe and taken care of. The food was good. Space to be both social if I wanted and solo if I chose.

I also am sometimes shy especially about speaking in public. I didn't find it to be much of a problem. It was a very supportive and welcoming environment; the staff, shamans and leaders were so in tune with the problems of being human that it made it much easier to participate. Also, people are there to be real about themselves. Everybody is there to progress in some way and nobody seemed judgemental about any of it. I highly recommend it for the shamans, the safety, their philosophy and the beautiful environment.
Hi - I found it to be a minor issue. It is hilly and I definitely got a little more winded that usual going uphill to the showers and rooms. There was so much to recommend it, I didn't find it to be a big problem.
