About The Teacher

Mikaela is a Kambo Therapist, Ayahuasca Facilitator and Hridaya Yoga- and Meditation Teacher. For the past eight years she has been living in the Guatemalan and Peruvian Rainforest, where she has been assisting and developing Sinchi Runa together with Maestro Sanango. Her presence is safe, loving and compassionate and she serves Ayahuasca with deep integrity and wisdom. The devotion and love of her work embraces each human being, plant and animal on this Earth. When experiencing the medicine for the first time her thoughts were “If all people would drink Ayahuasca, all the problems of the world would be solved”.In this spirit, she dedicates herself to creating a space in which Ayahuasca can be safely experienced in its full potential. During the past eight years she has dieted with a variety of shamanic master plants and gone through hundreds of Ayahuasca Ceremonies, Purges and Shamanic Processes. She spent most of the time during the first three years of her learning alone in the jungle without communication with the “outer world”. During this time she went through many shamanic diets, communicating with Ayahuasca, the plant spirits, the natural world and the Cosmos. A process that proved invaluable to her understanding of the medicine and allowing her to serve others in similar processes. Moreover, she is studying academic psychology as well as alternative therapies, seeking to implement a deep therapeutic safety and care, bridging profound shamanic insight and healing with a safe therapeutic framework and yogic practices. She is also a mother and spends most of her time rediscovering the world with her two-year old son Maitreya.“I have felt the pain and cry of the Earth and I have cried with her. I have seen the deep inherent goodness and greatness of humanity and been filled with hope. I have experienced our eternal nature as pure divine love and our human nature as gardeners and caretakers of the field of our minds, hearts and of this beautiful Earth. I have danced with fairies in moonlit forests and I have ventured into the dark parts of my being, forgiving and accepting myself as I am. I have fallen in love with existence in all its nuances. Ayahuasca opened my eyes, my soul, my being and has given me the honor to hold space for others to journey with her, in their own unique way. I am convinced of the incredible healing power of this medicine and believe there is no greater gift humanity could receive in this time. I cannot express in words how meaningful this is to me, but through facilitating these processes I am filled with gratitude. Through Ayahuasca, I see so many people rediscover their own undoubtable truth and beauty, beyond all words or dogma. I see people communicate with the Universe while their suffering transforms into great wisdom. I am so honored to be here.” Mikaela

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Retreat Guru's Vision
