Our Mission

Vikara: Awaken, Connect, Thrive

A Journey of Love and Transformation.

Let nature be your teacher at Vikara’s Plant Medicine Retreats. We work with experienced shamans and master plants to help you on your spiritual journey towards expanding consciousness and shedding light upon aspects of the self we are ready to transform.  We reconnect with the great spirit and the elements in order to bring peace, love, integrity and joy to our lives. Our retreats feature yoga, surfing, connection with nature, community, and nutritional meals. We keep our groups small, and offer many opportunities for integration, processing, and sharing. We are passionate about creating an environment where you feel comfortable, safe, and supported through the entire process of self-discovery and transformation.




Our mission:

At Vikara, we work with a holistic approach towards healing and well-being, combining Plant Medicine ceremonies such as Ayahuasca and other master plants with integrational and somatic therapies and healing rituals. We leverage our collective expertise in various healing traditions and modalities to create powerful and sustainable healing experiences. You will benefit from the diverse wisdom of experienced therapists and the profound guidance of the master plants, fostering profound transformation and lasting personal growth.


  • Guide individuals on transformative journeys: We facilitate profound healing experiences through ayahuasca ceremonies, plant medicine, and connection with nature, empowering individuals to reclaim their true potential and seek their own healing.
  • Gain consciousness and responsibility: We foster a conscious community that understands the interconnectedness of all things. As our elders taught us the phrase, “Aho Mitakuye Oyasin” which means for all our relationships; We take personal responsibility for healing ourselves and planetary well-being. We try to embody this lifestyle in our day today life
  • Promote holistic health and integration: We advocate for a holistic approach to well-beingness to bring balance and health to our physical, emotional, spiritual, and energetic dimensions. We guide individuals and provide them with tools towards integrating these aspects for lasting healing and personal fulfillment.
  • Provide a safe and nurturing nest: We offer a welcoming space led by dedicated professionals, creating a secure environment for personal transformation.
  • Empower self-discovery and connection: Through gentle therapeutic tools, we guide individuals on a journey of self-discovery and healing. This journey empowers them to release past traumas and limiting habits, unlocking their potential and fostering a deeper connection to their higher selves. This transformative experience allows them to return to their daily lives empowered and aligned with their unique purpose and essence.
