Welcome to Vikara Retreats. Vikara was born out of the idea to create a holistic community that supports a healthy lifestyle aligned with nature and the local environment. Together, we strive to make this your home and transform it into place of belonging where you can let go of daily worries and stress and completely focus on your quest of self-discovery. This is the opportunity to connect with like minded people, discuss all your deep, crazy and funny thoughts, discover a new country together, laugh with each other, and be the best version of yourself. Our space thrives on unique personalities, mutual respect, diversity and friendship. The retreats are designed for small groups which make your experience very intimate. The friendships developed on retreat create a community (meaningful connections with other people healing through shared experiences). The goal is that you feel at home and allow yourself to be yourself.

Location

This retreat will take place in Olon, Ecuador. Olon is a small, sleepy, and charming village. The beach in Olon is clean and sandy, which is good for surfing and hiking. Migrating humpback whales can be spotted from the beach from August to November and sunsets are spectacular all year round. The village is authentic with a real sense of community: fisherman selling their daily catch, coconuts on the beach, local produce of fruits and vegetables, parrots, pelicans, pirate birds, and palm trees.

Hot rocks are placed inside a pit located in the center. Water is periodically poured over the heated rocks to create a hot and steamy room.The sweat ceremony is intended as a spiritual reunion with the creator and a respectful connection to the earth itself as much as it is meant for purging toxins out of the physical body.
  • Private Plant Medicine Ceremony: Ayahuasca and other plant medicines are powerful tools that address all aspects of a person’s existence (physical, mental and energetic), calling on the participants to embark on a journey of self-discovery in order to uncover the root of imbalances, understand ourselves and grow.
