Ishika, Marc's life partner, grew up in Bangladesh, which gave her perspective on the different lives people are forced to lead due to their economic circumstances, and the terrible poverty and the intense hardships many face on a daily basis. The contrast was difficult to come to terms with. She was very spiritual from a young age, but the hurdles and challenges of life left her agnostic in her youth. However, a deep spiritual awakening she experienced in 2012 changed her life, and she turned to the shamanic medicine path.
Mother Ayahuasca had called her name. Since then she has been on a journey of transformation and self-discovery; being fully committed to share her truth with as many souls as possible. Ishika believes that there is too much pain and trauma in the human collective, and that the path to a peaceful, harmonious humanity is through healing each and every individual, to spiritually empower them through their own awakening, and she is committed to working with Sacred plant medicines to assist this process in the world. Returning to nature and our native roots will help us build a strong community with moral values that come from the Heart, ready for our deepest healing to occur.
