Working with the Amazonian plant medicine ayahuasca under the guidance of indigenous Peruvian Shipibo healers, the Soltara Healing Center collaborates with clinical psychologists who have extensive plant medicine experience to support a uniquely integrative approach to healing.

“Soltara” comes from the Spanish verb “soltar” — meaning to let go or release.

Plant medicines such as ayahuasca, and other holistic therapies, ask us to connect to all parts of ourselves, and if there are painful parts, to confront them directly: They are speaking to us and want to teach us something. By shining the light of consciousness into the shadowed corners of our psyche, we are able to acknowledge, learn from, and release the suffering attached to them.

The highly-skilled, gentle, loving Shipibo healers and facilitators at Soltara Healing Center will help guide you through this process of self-discovery through plant medicine healing, supportive holistic modalities, and modern psychotherapeutic practices.

In addition to the Center, a vibrant online community fosters open dialogue, personal connection, and high-quality resources to help you learn from each other and expand your knowledge base. A commitment to individual and global healing, on all levels, drives to support the spiritual and psychedelic movement taking place.
