Olon, Santa Elena, Ecuador
I have been fortunate enough to have worked with Ayahuasca on a number of occasions over the past few years as I worked through some life challenges. This plant medicine has allowed me to address fears and blockages and to grow into a more authentic version of myself. It has been transformative for me and I am so grateful.
My journeys have taken me to two other centers, one in Ecuador and one in the US. Both have been positive experiences but none have compared to the incredible energy of Vikara. Roey has managed to assemble a group of staff who anticipate every need, be it physical, emotional, or spiritual.
Elba is a yoga teacher like no other. Through her classes, I feel that I have finally realized the true meaning and purpose of yoga. She is a natural in guiding us toward the gift of opening the heart. Nali is a master in the kitchen, creating rich yet healthy meals and a nurturing atmosphere throughout the center. And, finally, I will feel eternally connected to, and appreciative of, the incredible gifts of Aime and Juanita as they weave the healing power of this medicine through the journey of ceremony. The sense of wisdom, community, and respect is unmatched. These are guides who are changing the world.
All of this takes place in the quaint, safe, unassuming beach community of Olon – another gem of a discovery by Roey. Gentle waves. Beautiful sunsets. Welcoming locals.
I do highly recommend the Vikara experience to anyone who is feeling the call to ceremony. I am so thankful to have stumbled upon it in my travels.
