The Hummingbird Retreat is one of the most powerful beautiful and life changing experiences I have ever had. AND I have had many. I did not go with depression but with a desire to move forward in my life. To be the best person I can be and to be comfortable being who I am. I am. Jim is one...

You will see many reviews saying that they got more than they hoped for, and do not have words to describe there experience at the Hummingbird. I read these before I left for Peru and was unable to grasp what kind of healing is truly possible at a place like this. All of these things were true, and so so...

Well where do I start with the Hummingbird. Everyone there is professional and friendly. Jim the owner is a great, knowledgeable man and is always there to help and answer questions when you need him. Manain the shaman hosts phenomenal ceremonies and his range of instruments and Icaros are stunning. The price is more than reasonable and from what I...

I went to the Humming Bird Retreat for the Spring Equinox because I live in the northeast & we all need healing this time of year! What started as a vacation turned into one of the richest experiences of my life. The resort is set in the most peaceful surroundings, with ponds, trails, and very comfortable lodgings. The staff was...

My time at Humming Bird was beyond words. Indescribable. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to go. Jim was amazing, so selfless and giving, a true healer, providing much more than a service, but a true deep experience. His stories were fascinating and his teachings inspiring. Manahee's presence and ceremonies were powerful and it was a true honor....

It's been two years since my Hummingbird experience, and I still about it almost everyday. I am eternally grateful for providing me, and others, a safe place to explore within. There is so much love there (both in myself and at Hummingbird 😊). I felt cared for and supported, yet given the space and freedom to discover on my own....

As I am sitting here trying to think of describing this place I am struggling to gather my words. There is so much to say and written word is so limiting. I will say that from the perspective of what the plant medicine like ayahuasca can do for you it is absolutely amazing and no words can describe it... ever....
