What Customers Say


I recently attended one of Kristina's retreats at Selva Vida, and it was a transformational experience for me. I cannot say enough good things about the setting itself - a safe, beautiful home with wonderful accommodations, staff, and food. The coaching workshops were full of mind-opening realizations, and the ayahuasca shaman who worked with us was one of the best I have ever been treated by. The jungle tour was so much fun, and even something as simple as the yoga session spoke to me. I have attended many different retreats; however this was my first one of Kristina's, and I truly believe that it was a breakthrough one for me. For once, I came away feeling lighter and significantly more at peace. If you are looking for an excellent healing retreat in the Peruvian Amazon, I highly recommend attending one at Selva Vida.


I had the opportunity to attend Kristina's life transformation retreat program in the Amazon. It was one of the most transformational experiences I’ve had the honor of experiencing. I fell and rose in love with the whole thing. The combination of plant medicines with intentional workshops make an excellent recipe for my personal growth. I highly recommend the program to anyone looking for an introduction to the paradigm shift that plant medicines provide. I'm also continuing to enjoy the ongoing coaching follow up. The accommodations were nice and the food was good every day. All the extras of being in the Amazon and additional activities make it an especially magical way to learn about yourself. If you’re still deciding to attend a similar program, just do it! You’ll thank yourself later.
