Soul Quest Ayahuasca Church of Mother Earth is a spiritual learning and healing center focused on providing the community with service, education, spiritual fellowship, healing practices, and guidance. Our neo-shamanic church blends shamanic traditions from the amazon with our western culture. We embrace all paths of a free responsible search for truth and spiritual meaning and believe that each person is a unique & individual expression of the Great Source of Life and that each person is sacred and worthy of love.
We believe in the rights of Mother Earth, and in protecting the practice of Mother Earth-based South Native American spiritual traditions, ceremonies, and sacred indigenous natural medicines. What is of the earth is our holy sacrament, and we retain the rights as citizens of this nation to use plant medicines as tools for the benefit of our physical health, spiritual growth, and personal evolution.
We do not charge for the medicine, but for the work of accompaniment, for meals, accommodation, psycho-spiritual integration with trained coaches, psychological support, and medical supervision!
Soul Quest utilizes an independent medical service that provides medical support throughout our weekend retreats to ensure everyone’s safety, support, and that all your needs are taken care of at any point during your stay. The Soul Quest Natural Healing Center has a world class medical team that includes a Medical Director, an MD, a Dr. for Oriental Medicine, a physician’s assistant, licensed paramedics, and licensed practical nurses.
We also provide the highest standards of Psycho-Spiritual Integration to all our members before during and after your stay with us. Our integration team is all certified by our sister organization Being True to You. This organization is specialized in transformational coaching services that are designed to support both addiction recovery and psycho-spiritual integration work surrounding transformational experiences with entheogens.
Before you can book your retreat, you are required to sign up as a member of Soul Quest Church of Mother Earth. After booking we will send you our medical forms, consent forms & waivers that you have to fill out before attending a weekend retreat.

Please note that there will be no refunds or discounts for arriving late, leaving early, flight cancellations, travel delays or illness. If you cancel your participation in a retreat for any reason, the cancellation policy below will apply, with no exceptions. We wish we could compensate people for unforeseen circumstances (injury, family emergency, etc), but we have costs already incurred when reserving retreat centers and hotels. We have designed our cancellation policy to be as compassionate as possible in the case that your plans change. But to protect yourself further, we strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance.
IF YOU CANCEL THE AYAHUASCA RETREAT:
Please send an email to email@example.com or call 407 360 6501 as far advanced as possible. We do not refund your deposit but you can reschedule to any retreat in the future. The exception are if you have a medical condition that does not allow you to participate.
IF WE CANCEL THE AYAHUASCA RETREAT:
We have never had to cancel a retreat, however, if we do cancel a trip due too few participants, we will refund to you all deposits and payments you have paid. We cannot, however, compensate you for airfare or travel costs incurred. In the unlikely event that SOUL QUEST AYAHUASCA CHURCH OF MOTHER EARTH must cancel a Ayahuasca retreat due to weather, natural disaster or political upheaval, we cannot guarantee a refund – it will be depending on receiving a refund from the venue / tour operator we work with. To cover these risks, we highly recommend you purchase travel insurance.
The best way to protect yourself from any unforeseen circumstance is to purchase trip insurance. Travel Insurance can protect you in case:
• you cancel your participation in the Ayahuasca retreat
• the retreat is canceled due to weather, natural disaster, or not enough participants to run the trip
• lost baggage
• medical expenses and the cost of repatriation should you become ill or injured
We recommend TRAVELGUARD, which offers a variety of travel insurance, including the option for a comprehensive “cancel for any reason” policy. If you cancel your retreat – for any reason – your airfare, hotel, retreat costs, etc. up until 48 hours prior to travel, will be covered. This comprehensive package is called the ” Gold Package Cancel for Any Reason” Policy”. You must contact Travelguard and purchase the policy within 15 days of buying your airline tickets or incurring any costs for any part of your travel. You can also just ensure your air tickets. Travelguard can give you quotes for each scenario.
