About Awaken Your Soul

Awaken Your Soul was born from a magnetic pull to spread the healing of this sacred medicine.

Our work with medicinal plants, specifically Iboga, as well as multiple other healing modalities, helped us save our own lives on many levels. We have uncovered our undeniable beauty, personal awareness, and truths within the human condition that we feel committed to as part of our life’s work.

Iboga is an incredibly powerful tool for healing all aspects of our lives. It is more powerful than we can even sometimes believe. One week with the Iboga medicine can truly begin to transform a person, we see this over and over and over again.

It is our mission to impact change in the world through holding an impeccable space where people can connect to their own innate power and begin to create the life they deserve. We are all our own healers, our roll is to create a safe container for the journey within.

Awaken Your Soul retreats offer a warm and nurturing approach for those seeking clarity from the medicine, helping them feel safe and comfortable to explore their deepest truths. These retreats are not a “vacation” but rather a departure from an old, stale and often uncomfortable way of being.

This time offers our guests the opportunity to experience an elevated state of consciousness combined with healing foods, breathwork, art therapy, yoga, meditation and an open and safe environment for people to feel greatly supported to explore themselves in the deepest way possible.

We host open enrollment retreats as well as coordinate private retreats by appointment.

At Awaken Your Soul we hold immense love and gratitude for this medicine, and for the people we work with who seek a higher truth within!

Resident Ceremony Kitty

Isabel (typically known as Mama) was born in Miami and has been and nature-lover and a devout foodie her whole life. She has always had a compassionate nature but truly tapped into her empathic and healing abilities when her parents began to include her in these sacred ceremonies.

She now spends her days interacting with the peacocks and snoozing to save her energies for the ceremony nights. Isabel spends the entire ceremony time patrolling the sacred space and attending to those who need some animal connection!
