Words of Gratitude

This trip was a dream. It far exceeded my expectations. I felt so welcomed and comfortable, but it also challenged me in ways I didn’t even know could happen.

I could describe this experience as life changing but that would not do it justice. It was a powerful, challenging, loving, and supportive spiritual experience. Every need was attended to in a beautiful environment.

The whole team is incredible. They are so supportive, understanding, and passionate. I have never felt so nurtured in my life. When you're in the experience they are always there, with love and open arms. I cannot recommend them enough.

Elio is an amazing leader! On point organisation and structure. He is well connected in the indigenous community and has a great understanding of the spiritual journeys and the psychology of us humans. Elio is highly likeable and someone you will trust from the beginning of your journey.

I feel lucky and honoured to have met Elio, who organized probably the best jungle-trip I have ever had. Elio introduced us to the oldest shamanic family of Peru. Elio appeared not only as a reliable and very empathetic facilitator, but also as a close friend and loving ceremony contributor who openly shares his deep knowledge of the medicinal plants and the shamanic way of life. I look forward to meeting him again for many more magical adventures in the future. Thank you very much!

After many years on ‘the road less travelled’ and the chance meetings with remarkable wonderful souls, I had the good fortune to come into the presence of Maneesh de Moor and Elio Geusa. As we all look back into our lives, we remember those quintessential special moments of bliss, joy, enlightenment to the opening of your heart space, our kinship to all. This encounter with Maneesh and Elio was one of those times. Their love and support is boundless. Their music transcends the spirit to the indescribable. Very rarely do I recommend 2 people to work with, but feel honoured and bound to say to everyone who reads this. They are the gifts for you, to spend time with them in something so special, for YOUR LIFE — Namaste. Bodhi Madito.

Ayahuasca opened a door to a new world that I was scared to enter before. Ayahuasca is a teacher and a tool, once you have the knowledge it’s up to you to create your life and to put the teachings in action. This work is a wonderful ongoing process. Elio is very loving; a happy and balanced person. He radiates a very strong, positive energy that makes you feel completely comfortable. Helping others is his priority in life.

Application

Our comprehensive screening questionnaire has been developed in partnership with the International Centre for Ethnobotanical Education, Research and Service (ICEERS). Please take your time to answer it as honestly and with as much detail as possible. This information will remain strictly confidential and will only be used to assess your suitability for a place on retreat with AYA Healing Retreats and keep you safe

Please remember that the purpose of this screening questionnaire is to determine whether plant medicine healing is suitable for you…not whether you are suitable for plant medicine healing. Plant medicines are tools, like any other healing modality and like other tools for healing experiencing them entails certain risks. We need to make sure that our plant medicines will not compromise your wellbeing or harm you in any way before we allow you to begin your healing journey with us. In short, we care about your safety and we need to do what we can to ensure that during your time with us you are not at risk of harm. Plant medicines can be dangerous if the plants are not the right fit for the individual. Your answers to this questionnaire will help us to determine whether the plants we intend to use are going to help, rather than harm you
