In 2018, Verena became a certified Foundational Practitioner of Reconnective Healing– a comprehensive healing approach within the field of Energy Healthcare, recognized for its capacity to stimulate an individual’s return to balance, harmony, and well-being on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Verena co-founded Soul Quest in 2015 to offer transformative healing work with entheogens to people in the United States. She has been on a spiritual path since her early 20s, has participated in many different spiritual retreats, family constellation workshops, energy healing classes and got certified as a Spiritual Counselor in 2013. Verena discovered the healing benefits of Ayahuasca in 2014 what has helped her profoundly to overcome a decade long struggle with panic attacks, anxiety, and depression – it is now her mission to help others to heal from their burdens of life and to find their true self through the work with plant medicine. She believes that we all have the capacity to reconnect with the essence of our true spirit to live a life of joy, unlimited potential, and authenticity.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
