The Hummingbird Retreat Center was an experience that I will never forget. To speak of the facility and the staff, everything was exquisite. Jim, Gina, Manain, and all of the support staff were very kind and helpful. The grounds were also clean and beautifully tropical. It was a real treat to stay there. To speak of the experience itself, I...

It was an amazing experience. A very professionally run and well managed place. All the staff is amazing. Jim provides much guidance but at the same time stays out of your way and let's the medicine (in a very strong brew) do the jobs. But he is ALWAYS available when extra attention is needed. Just ask! Please be clear about...

There aren't enough words to express my gratitude to Jim and the staff at Hummingbird. They provided an excellent setting to take ayahuasca for anyone seeking guidance and insights from the healing power of this medicine. From the beautiful landscape, food, animals and staff, the Hummingbird retreat is by far one of the best places in Peru to find healing...

This place is beautiful, both the environment and what is offered. Jim is a humble, honest man that is serving everybody to get the most. The sjamaan Manian has unbelievable powers and works with energy in a way that we never experienced before. If you feel you should work with ayahuasca, for healing or lessons, this place is absolutely recommended....

I visited the Hummingbird Center for the 12 day retreat. If you are looking for true healing, mentally and spiritually, then I highly recommend visiting the Hummingbird Center. The grounds are peaceful and provide an opportunity to disconnect from the outside world and focus on healing. The accommodations were perfect. You have your own room where the sheets are changed...

I was at the Hummingbird Center for one month healing from severe PTSD. My reality before my stay in the jungle was hell. My mind was haunted and chaotic. The amount of fear, rage, grief, shame and guilt I carried made it very difficult for me to leave my apartment. I also had severe physical pain and had been on...

My heart glows reading how well you are doing. Give yourself a pat on the back for following through on what you learned while here. It is important we continue caring well for ourselves. As you said, this medicine is very successful treating PTSD, and many others can benefit from it.

14 days of connection were enhanced by disconnecting from my phone, the internet, and clocks. Just stepping onto the property I could feel myself grounding and soaking in the nature all around......my senses heightened......an instant camaraderie and transparency with others in the group. I have a deep, profound respect for Ayahuasca and the people (Jim, Manoin and Gina) who are...
