After intakes and registration is completed, participants are invited to book a complimentary 30 minute virtual meeting with our lead facilitator.  Supporting staff are available by text, call, and email as needed.

All participants are invited to a secure group message to connect and share resources ahead of ceremony.

Two weeks ahead of ceremony, a group preparation call is held virtually.

Retreats include two Ayahuasca ceremonies and  two formal (and optional) integration circles. 

Retreats are limited to 15 participants and have a participant to staff ratio of 4:1 minimum. We have a nurse and psychologist on site all weekend.

We provide vegan, home-cooked meals throughout the weekend and participants sleep on their provided mats in the ceremony space.

One complimentary integration call is offered the week after ceremony and additional integration calls are offered depending on the needs of the group.

All participants are added to a secure group message with all UnChurch members. We strive to have an inclusive, accessible, and supportive community and many of our members have found best friends, business partners, and more through our community.


There are many different variations of the ayahuasca diet. While there are some foods that are medically necessary to avoid, what you eat outside of that will vary from person to person. The diet is about cleansing for ceremony, so the body is best prepared for the sacrament/medicine.
