Our Healing Center was initially founded in 2008 and after a transition to a new piece of land took place in 2013, Spirit gifted us a new name in honor of the expanding vision of healing for humanity and our Mother Earth.  Nimea Kaya signifies "Spirit of the Jungle" in the Shipibo native language.  You may also know us as the Tierra Vida Healing Center which was founded in 2008 by Jill Levers & Casey Honaker.  After they had both journeyed several times with Madre Ayahuasca the year previous, the calling to create a space of safety, integrity, comfort & support became paramount in their lives to be able to share this healing with all of those seeking.   Our vision and mission here at the Nimea Kaya Healing Center is providing a peaceful and eco-friendly environment where people may participate in a variety of healing modalities.  We offer ayahuasca ceremonies in a traditional jungle setting with traditional Shipibo curanderos along with other native plant medicines and herbal remedies for physical and spiritual awakening and healing.  We use nature's teachings to strengthen our Divine connection with the Creator, developing our consciousness into deeper states of awareness.  We believe that Ayahuasca is not only a magnificent healer but shows us how to awaken to our true selves.  Through the medicine we are able to re-remember our Divine nature, our Oneness with All, and are able to take this wisdom back with us to aid in manifesting a beautiful and harmonious existence with all things.

Nimea Kaya’s Facilitators & Healers

                                        Jill Levers

   Co-founder of Nimea Kaya, Ayahuasca Retreat Coordinator, Yoga Instructor & Spanish/English Interpreter.  During her second ceremony with Ayahuasca in 2007, she received the call to dedicate her life to the healing and transformational work with the sacred medicine.  Jill says, “After years of feeling spiritually empty, Ayahuasca has shown me a divine truth I never thought I would experience in this lifetime.  Ayahuasca has given me the gift of healing my false sense of separation and has flooded me with a freedom beyond description.  Belief and trust have become my strongest foundations on my path of awakening.  I am so grateful to be in service of this healing work.                                                        To read more about me:  click here
