What Our Participants Say
"Aya always finds you when you are ready and She found me via Claire who was real support before, during and after retreat. I am very thankful and can't wait for me my next ceremony."
"A life changing experience. I can’t thank Claire, the shamans and the rest of the group and family enough for the entire experience. Definitely a medicine for a lot of issues. I am so grateful that this came onto my path at this time in my life, and to have had such great people around me to share it with and guide me through it. I would definitely recommend the retreat to anyone who is open for a change in their life, anyone who is struggling and looking for guidance."
"It was an incredible experience. Support wasn't just given during the retreat but was also given before and especially after. I did so much research on different retreats and I picked this one because of the support and it was even better than expected. I had an extremely tough time on one of the nights and Claire stuck by my side for hours and she was constantly checking up on me after the retreat. Such an amazing woman who has a passion for ayahuasca. Highly recommend!"
"After my ayahuasca ceremony I feel like a new woman. It showed me everything I needed to see and more. My body feels so clean like I’ve been on a 3 month detox and the mental clarity I have is more than I ever expected. Big thanks to Claire and her team of shamans for making my first ayahuasca experience one to remember."
"l fell in love with this amazing woman from the first message. Thank you so much for an amazing life transformation I can't explain what a wonderful experience it was."
"I learned a lot, I let go, I loved, I understood and I wish more people will explore the power of Mother Ayahuasca !!! I highly recommend Claire Quirk and her team they're beautiful people and I know will definitely do another retreat with them again. I can’t thank them enough for my experience! The most extraordinary experience of my life !!!"
"I didn’t really know what to expect before I went but the guidance from Claire, the authentic nature of the Shamans and the feeling of fulfilment I have long after I’ve left the retreat. I couldn’t believe how much clarity, introspection and healing I did over just a few days that I was there. It’s changed the way I look at natural and Amazonian medicine and will also gave me huge focus on what I need in life and my priorities. Everyone should do it. It is money well spent and I’ll be going back a minimum of once a year."
"I knew Claire was the person to take me on my first journeys with Ayahuasca from the moment I heard her voice. She showed me compassion, patience, and understanding. She helped me understand my experience in a more profound and productive way then I could have understood on my own. Claire is simply a joy to be around and a magnificent teacher. Thank you for your light and your love and your support."
"If this is something you are considering, I couldn’t recommend Claire enough. She is warm, patient, well organised and with a laugh so infectious it is still making me giggle. I can’t wait to return to one of Claire’s future retreats."
"It was an amazing experience and I couldn’t have been better supported before, during and after. And there was so much more to the retreat than drinking ayahuasca...I had the pleasure of sharing the experience with best bunch of people; we had shamanic talks where we learned about their lives and indigenous culture."
"Just back from the most amazing weekend of my life. The Ayahuasca Retreat in Malaga with Claire Quirk, the Shaman and his guys, musicians and all involved in the Crystal Inn, the food was beautiful and of course our group to make it a magnificent and wonderful experience full of love. I have walked away a new man from the Ayahuasca ceremonies."
"Claire's strength and kindness is so special--she is a treasure of a human being. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to explore further the healing power of Ayahuasca in a shamanic setting. Her respect for this medicine and for her clients' process is deep and authentic. She approaches both with humility and profound awareness in order to facilitate true healing and transformation."
"Claire is a loving guide who is patient and knowledgeable. She took the time before, during, and after the retreat to provide compassionate and attentive coaching. With her kindness, warmth, wisdom, and humour, she went above and beyond to ensure I had a great experience that was indeed transformative."
"Claire was absolutely wonderful support from start to finish. There were many first-timers in the group and she made everyone feel completely at ease, answering any questions, and following up regularly after the retreat. This was a truly unforgettable experience and it couldn't have happened without Claire's organisation and positive energy and influence. Thank you so much, I'll be back again!"
"I don't feel I could have picked a better person to guide me through the process of the ayahuasca journey and the amount Claire thought myself and the rest of the group was more than enough, so if anyone is looking to do it for their first time or even if you have done it before I would highly recommend contacting Claire to get the most out of the experience"
"I can't recommend Claire's retreats enough there's so much more to it than just taking Ayahuasca. I feel like I've gained a very special person in my life and would highly recommend all her retreats. I'm doing my second retreat in Columbia this time. 1 million out of 10 can't recommend enough."
"What can I say about Claire!? One in a million! Claire is one of the most genuine, caring and loving people I've ever met. From the moment I heard her voice I knew 'This is the person who's going to take me on my ayahuasca journey'."
"Claire is extremely dedicated and loving. She guided my partner and me through an ayahuasca retreat, and literally worked round the clock to support us and others, before and during. Haven’t come across this level of support in my experience with other retreats and guides. "
"Claire is a top class human who gave me the opportunity to explore the life changing medicine that is Ayahuasca in a safe and loving environment. It's given me a thirst for life again, and I haven't felt the dreaded pang of anxiety since my time with Claire and her team. They care deeply about their work and I couldn't recommend them enough. Big love! "
"I've returned from the retreat, armed with life-affirming optimism and a wonderful collection of new friends. For those willing to submit, the rewards in your own life will be immeasurable. None of this would have been possible without Claire and her team – these people are the real deal plus the kindness and good humour will make you wish to stay forever. "
"I had the enormous privilege of recently attending Claire's retreat and I can honestly say it may be the best decision I ever made.
For anyone experiencing life as a challenge, for those suffering from depression, addiction or perhaps the most common malaise, a crisis of purpose in this world I'd advise you to drink this medicine."
"I would highly recommend Claire's retreat because it's the highest level of help and support that's out there! I'm a changed man!"
"I have now completed one retreat, made loads of new friends and gained more life experience in that one retreat than I have in my whole life prior! Her self help and mentoring have made me a brand new loveable person who's is back to loving life and moving forward!"
"A review of the best experience I've ever had in my life to date! I came to Claire broken, and in my eyes, at rock bottom. But now I can honestly hand on heart say that horrible negative part of my life is over. And that would not have been possible if wasn't for Claire. She's fantastic with all of her coaching and guidance as well as being a great friend."
"I would strongly recommend Claire's retreat and the amazing Shamanic team she works with. She was so helpful and she gives everyone so much care and attention. I would definitely go for another retreat with Claire."
"Where do I start this is a LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE from start to finish Claire was amazing, she was initially my mentor but I left as her friend. I felt apprehensive and slightly scared before I went to retreat but Claire and the team guided me with love and support before, during and after the retreat. I will be back and wouldn’t ever think about going elsewhere! "
"Amazing team of Shamans and medicine workers. I look forward to so many more retreats. I'm a new person in the best possible way. "
"I was fortunate enough to attend one of Claire retreats in Malaga and the overall experience was more than I ever could have imagined. Never in my life have I met such amazing, kind, caring souls like the ones I met on Claires retreat, these people were born to heal. The people, the food, the support and the effort that was put into each and every ceremony was amazing, they went above and beyond."
"Highly recommend a retreat with claire, she is fantastic and the retreat was life changing, cant wait to do another with her in April."
"It was an amazing experience I felt safe, protected and loved the entire time I was there. If you are looking an healing experience from a tender loving guide you found the right person. You will leave this retreat feeling reformed and you will gain a family."
"I love the fact that Claire has brought this closer to Europe, it gives so many people the chance to become the best version of themselves."
"Claire advised as soon as I booked the 4 night Ceremony in Malaga that the journey had now started. From that moment on I was able to speak to Claire regularly about what I hoped to take from the experience as well as any worries or doubts I had. Claire is a very open, thoughtful and compassionate person.
Furthermore she has the experience required to be able to put these amazing retreats together. She has a wealth of knowledge on Ayuahuasca as well as spiritual healing and opens up about her own experiences. This was my first Ayuahuasca experience and it was amazing. It will not be my last and this is all down to Claire. Thank you so much Claire."
"Claire is an absolutely invaluable resource for those curious about Ayahuasca. My first experience - a 3 day retreat in the jungle with Claire - was profound, comfortable, enriching, and transformative. So happy I made the decision to go on a retreat with Claire and I highly recommend her retreats and coaching!"
"I love Claire’s easy and friendly approach. She was really helpful in getting you grounded before the ceremonies and to really understand the work behind Ayahuasca. The Skype call before the retreat was particular helpful to talk about what I wanted to get out of the experience. Really good follow up literature to keep your mind working post retreat."
"Oh my God would I what!!!! It was the most beautiful spiritual experience I’ve EVER had!!!! It’s a game changer.. I was a bit lost, lost my faith in anything, just zapped by life and my journey.. I’ve returned from this experience with a new zest for life, in tune with nature which sadly in our technology driven world seems to be left behind when in reality we need that connection far more than ever!!! Get back to nature, back to peace & calm.. That’s how I feel..
Claire is just amazing too, she really cares about you and you feel that, this is a labor of love for her on every level and although I may have been nervous I always felt safe and cared for. She’s like the warm hug of family holding your hand through this unbelievable experience. I’m so grateful to her!!! Thank you Claire.. And thanks to Alex and Julian also, the sweetest souls that ever walked the earth!!! Their vibe immediately puts you at rest, they’re kind and just beautiful souls, both of them and I thank Alex for insisting Julian come on this trip as it was magical to have two such amazing Shaman healing and guiding and protecting us!!!!! Thank you guys..
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this to anyone looking for their right path or who maybe feel like they’ve stumbled down a wrong path and can’t find their way back to their true selves.. This is the one!!!! Get on it.. I cannot wait for my next ayahuasca retreat.. I’m hoping Columbia next but who knows.. Thank you so so much.. Sending gratitude and love to everyone who made this experience what it was.. and that’s to the group of nutters who joined me on this retreat.. I love all of you guys, you’re all really special and I feel blessed I got to do it with all of you."
"I had the pleasure and absolute good fortune to be introduced to this lady Claire Quirk a number of months ago. Not only has she studied and lectured in philosophy, psychology & sociology she is also an accredited Life Coach & Ayahuasca Coach.
She has taken me under her wing, guided me & helped me to not only change my outlook on life but has also made me look deep inside myself to help me find the real me. She also last week, guided and facilitated me through my first ever (but most definitely not last) Ayahuasca Retreat in Malaga, which was absolutely MIND BLOWING. This woman is one of the world's gentlest souls..... she's a protector. The kindness, care and loving she projects, has no limit. Hand on my heart she has helped me turn my life around. She has made me even more excited for the future and helped me leave the past where it belongs, in the past. I would highly advise anyone who needs a life coach to get in touch with Claire.
I would also highly advise EVERYONE, to experience, at the very least once in their lives, the Ayahuasca medicine. Its a game-changer. The clarity, guidance and direction that Mother Ayahuasca gives is unfathomable. Claire facilitates many retreats in Malaga throughout the year, so if anyone has any questions or reckons that they would like to partake in a retreat or would like to find out any further information, you should feel free to contact Claire."
"Claire goes above and beyond to make sure you have the most enjoyable ayahuasca experience possible. Not only does she create a safe space for the actual ceremony, her follow up care and guidance after it is fantastic. She is really passionate about what she does. This is not just Claire’s job it’s her lifestyle to help people who need this medicine.
After my ayahuasca ceremony I feel like a new woman. It showed me everything I needed to see and more . My body feels so clean like I’ve been on a 3 month detox and the mental clarity I have is more than I ever expected. Big thanks to Claire and her team of shamans for making my first ayahuasca experience one to remember "
" I am so grateful to Claire for organising the Malaga retreat. It was an amazing experience and I couldn’t have been better supported before, during and after. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit apprehensive in the weeks building up to it. But Claire’s knowledge and experience with the plant alleviated any worries I had, she was able to answer my questions and help me focus on what I wanted to gain from the experience.
And there was so much more to the retreat than drinking ayahuasca...I had the pleasure of sharing the experience with best bunch of people; we had shamanic talks where we learned about their lives and indigenous culture. Connecting with nature was also a huge part of the experience and the Crystal Inn is the perfect place for this, located in the mountains with breath-taking views.… Oh I could rant on about it all day!
If this is something you are considering, I couldn’t recommend Claire enough. She is warm, patient, well organised and with a laugh so infectious it is still making me giggle. I can’t wait to return to one of Claire’s future retreats. "
"Taking Ayahuasca for the first time can be a very scary experience but thankfully Claire was there to introduce me and the whole group with the medicine in the best possible way. She with her stories and suggestions were a big part of my amazing experience with Aya! There was not a single question that she didn't know the answer of and she gave all the love and positivity to everyone, making this a very unforgettable journey.
Claire knows Aya very well and personal so she's definitely the best person to go through the experience with. I'm very happy and thankful that Claire was the person who guided me through the experience, she's just an amazing human being! Also very open and responsive with any questions afterward! "
"Claire is an Incredible educator and coach. I learned a tremendous amount about the power of healing through connection with the spiritual world and plant medicines. My experience was transformational and incredibly empowering. I absolutely recommend any event or retreat with her, she guides and supports you in all the right ways."
"I did the 4 day ayahuasca retreat with Claire. It was an incredible experience. Support wasn't just given during the retreat but was also given before and especially after. I did so much research on different retreats and I picked this one because of the support and it was even better than expected. I had an extremely tough time on one of the nights and Claire stuck by my side for hours and she was constantly checking up on me after the retreat. Such an amazing women who has a passion for ayahuasca. Highly recommend! Thanks again Claire!"
"Claire is super friendly, sweet and genuine. She made me feel comfortable right away. Our coaching sessions were great and very helpful.
I highly recommend this Ayahuasca retreat with Claire. It was very well organized and well thought out. The setting is extraordinary, so sacred and natural. You really feel one with nature when out here. A great getaway from the big city.
It was a deeply healing and beautiful experience. There are a lot of helpers so you almost always have someone there to help you out when you need it.
Claire was always available for me when I needed her not only at the retreat but to talk online as well. Her energy is vibrant and alive. Thank you for such a wonderful experience
"For me it was a truly life changing experience to attend one of Claire's events and receive her unconditional support before, during and after it. She's such a kind and knowledgeable person and genuinely interested in each individual human being."
"Claire is a caring, sweet, and fierce leader who is committed to making the world better by sharing the healing power of Mother Ayahuasca with those who are ready to receive it.
Her retreats are a combination of fun and deeply spiritual. If you’re seasoned in plant medicine or a first timer called to do this work, Claire is a wonderful guide into this magical world!"
"I have only positive things to say after attending the three day jungle retreat. Taita (AKA TayTay) and the family were extremely accommodating and made us feel at home. Claire was excellent from start to finish , allowing us to be clear and open about what we wanted to get out of the experience, and following up with us well after the retreat was finished. We consider her a friend more than a coach and she made us feel safe and comfortable the whole way through."
"I highly recommend Claire and her retreats! She is a wonderful, caring and talented life coach who organizes really incredible retreats. She makes everyone feel at ease with her friendly personality and positive energy.
The Taitas she works with are highly experienced, with their knowledge of the medicine and ceremonies going way way back to their ancestors. You can feel confident that you will have a really amazing experience with Claire!"
"Claire, I really want to thank for the last weekend in the ayahuasca retreat, it was a really special experience. Thank you for your energy and your smile, you have the power to inspire others to be happy.
"It was wonderful working with Claire who is an extremely passionate, inspiring and spiritual person. Thank you for the perfect weekend and for all your time and energy given. Never stop being you."
"Just back from this special retreat the finca was stunning, the group couldn't have been better and the experience was very special.
Anyone who is feeling lost, depressed or feeling an urge for a complete change in their life should consider contacting Claire for advice and guidance.
Anyone on a spiritual path will most likely know about Ayahuasca plant medicine - it is life-changing!"
