About This Event

Plant medicines have been at the core of human health care as far as human history dates back. The indigenous Amazonian tribes consider the plants to have spirits, and those spirits to be the source of great power and healing. The plants help us guide towards understanding how to free ourselves from internal blockages and connect to the energy and essence that lives within us. Simultaneously, plant knowledge reconnects us to the humility, intention and integrity that underlies our existence.

At Vikara, we strive to provide a safe space for participants to continue their journey of transformation and experience the ancient wisdom and healing potential of plant medicines.

During this retreat we will be following the Ayahuasca diet.
The ayahuasca diet is an important part of ayahuasca retreats, both physically and spiritually. The diet is not just about avoiding certain foods, but is about discipline, sacrifice, commitment and respect to the process of experiencing the sacred teacher ayahuasca; and while our meals respect that traditions, they do not have to be bland, boring, or monotonous.
