Plant Medicine Day or Training day.
For those that are interested in plant medicine, you will meet with one of the foremost authorities and shamans of the plant medicine San Pedro or “Wachuma”. You will be walked through of internal celebration self-discovery and love.
The plant shows us where we hold our negativity in our bodies, where it came from, and then shows us what we SHOULD have learned from that experience. Once we see that, we release the negativity in our bodies, and we feel really clean and light afterwards, and we can think of that same experience afterwards, and we can give thanks for the teachings we received. It teaches us that NO experience is a bad experience, IF we learn from it.
In the same way, it shows us our thought patterns, and teaches us that every illness we have, is NOT because of bad luck, but because of the way we think. It teaches us to stop and recognize HOW we think, and change our thoughts, into positive ones. This is how we clean our bodies from all illness…is by cleaning our minds. The medicine has produced many miracles, people being cured of cancer, and all sorts of illnesses, just by them drinking this sacred plant.
The plant shows us too, that we are all children of the Light; we are all precious and special. It teaches us to see the divine within us, and to hold the divine light within us.
We also use this plant to reconnect to the earth. In this experience, we realize that there is NO separation between you, me, the earth, and the sky. We are all ONE. It’s one thing to read but to experience this oneness is one of the most beautiful gifts we can receive. The plant also teaches us to live in this world in balance and harmony, it teaches us compassion and understanding, and shows us clearly to love, respect and honor all things.
We will spend the day climbing the which are Peru’s most intact ancient sites, and a perfect example of ingenious Inca architecture. They are built on top of a mountain that towers over the small town of Pisac; the views of the countryside are spectacular, and the ruins and their makers are remarkable.
We will be led by a very informed guide to share with us the culture if the Incas. At some point on our journey we will have time for meditation and ceremony to connect to this incredible site. We will then make our way back town into the beautiful town of Pisac for a late lunch and deep conversations about our learnings!
Indigenous One of the incredible things about Pisac that is a hidden gem, is the 12 indigenous communities that live the in the mountains above Pisac. Over the last few months, we here at Catalina have forged relationships with 7 of these communities. These are Chahuaytire, Pampallacta, Paru Paru, Amaru, Viacha Ampay and Qotataqui.
On this day and evening we will spend time in one or two of these communities, learning about their culture. How they live, celebrate, and eat. We will learn about their agriculture, the staple of these communities the over 1700 different kinds of potatoes. They will also demonstrate how they take the wool of the Alpaca and how they create the permanent colors, like from the famous cochinilla bug that lives on the cactus of the Andes and the process of making the beautiful textiles by hand they are famous for. We will dance with them and come away with a very deep sense of the how these indigenous people, who are the descendants of the Incas have shaped the sacred valley and Pisac.
We will spend the morning connecting to each other’s stories and lessons learned. The rest of the day will be free for you to finish any shopping in Pisac for souvenirs you still need to purchase or just take in a local coffee café and relax before your long trip back home the next day.

My initial introduction with Visions for Life, LLC was when I met Vesna during a class we both attended in October 2021. We began to talk and explored how we have some things in common, traveling being one of them. I expressed my desire to travel to Peru, and I knew our souls aligned once she told me she had a trip planned for Peru the first week of December 2021.
This trip was truly divine timing for me in many aspects of my life (mentally, physically, emotionally, but most of all spiritually). Peru was absolutely beautiful, and the partnership Vesna has with Catalina Retreat Center has created an overall excellent experience. The Catalina Center was an oasis of everything you would dream of having all in one spot. We got a chance to wake up to beautiful sunrises on the mountain tops, interact with the beautiful animals on campus as well as enjoy authentic Peruvian food throughout our trip.
Visions for Life, LLC and the Catalina retreat center made each daily experience feel special, as I never felt like a tourist and got to experience and see so many things that I may not have discovered on my own. Whether you are looking to do a traditional tour at Machu Picchu or looking to spend some quality time with Peruvian natives in small villages, Visions for Life is who you want to book with.
I checked into a rehab facility for meth addiction in Scottsdale AZ. There I was assigned Vesna Matic as my counselor. I was very intrigued by her calmness and patience during group sessions. Her classes were different from all the others which revolved around spirituality and universal connections. This excited me since I was already very aware of the changing patterns of the stars but didn’t know how exactly they were affecting me personally. My favorite topic was when Vesna spoke about the new moon and how it might make one feel. I immediately was made aware of my own feelings through meditation in groups and one on one with Vesna.
Vesna has helped me reach childhood traumas that I had repressed for most of my life. Made me realize that I have never actually grieved these events. I continue to see Vesna weekly through WhatsApp since I am working in Hawaii. I am grateful to God to have met Vesna and know the universe has placed her in my life. I continue to grieve with the assurance that Vesna is just a phone call away. She has definitely helped soften the healing process and has become one of my most important friends in my life. Thank You Vesna!
I started therapy last year with Vesna. There’s a long list of things that were going wrong in my life and I finally realized I needed some help to get through them. One of the main issues were still working on is loss of my father the brought down an avalanche of feelings that I did not know how to deal with. One of the main reasons why I chose Vesna was the fact that she understands Balkan culture. She understands the traditional roles that everybody plays within the family as well as coming from the war zone and living the formative years of your life in a refugee mode so they speak. Thanks Vesna I have been able to fix a relationship with my mom my husband and even my son. If you were looking for a sign to start going to therapy this should be it. You won’t find another therapist with the wisdom and understanding that Vesna possesses.
Over 9 months ago I was in a dark place in my life struggling in the grips of a vicious addiction to alcohol and drugs. I was losing my self respect, my career and my family ALL at one time! Fortunately, a friend of mine referred me to Vesna Matic at Visions for Life. I took action (picked up the phone) and called Vesna that same day! Best Decision I’ve ever made.
Immediately, Vesna gave me hope where I had no hope at all! We scheduled our first session and NO AMOUNT OF MONEY could have been sufficient enough to pay for the nuggets of wisdom and direction she gave me in our first visit and many more to come! Vesna has the unique ability to dial me in diving into things like adolescence and childhood experiences and how they affect me today! We talk about practical and spiritual solutions! She always provides me with a step by step roadmap to overcome challenges life presents. Vesna is a great listener and I am always blown away with her years of wisdom and experience that she shares. Vesna is grounded and Her spirituality is unmatched to anyone I’ve ever know. You can actually “feel it” when you walk in the room!
As a result of the work Vesna and I continue to do, I am completely Sober and living a clean ~ fulfilling life. I am back with my family. I am secure with gainful employment and I feel great about myself and my future in sobriety! It’s a new way of life. I’m so grateful for Vesna. I hope you too can find the same peace I have found by reaching out.
“Vesna Matic is a thorough, patient, compassionate therapist & counselor. She has helped me to see different perspectives in problem areas of my life. Vesna has helped me to identify destructive patterns and behaviors and has offered various solutions to help put healthy boundaries in place, communicate better, and ask for help from others without being emotionally charged. Speaking my truth is so important and learning that i need not be intimidated, nor feel/act like a victim in order to do so. Vesna Matic’s incredible talent lies in her ability to assist with identifying and acknowledging the source of the pain or whatever is holding me back. She accompanied me on the journey to self healing, and provided tools necessary to complete the journey”.
“I would highly recommend Vesna Matic to be your therapist and to help you work through your troubles”.
“I want to begin this conversation by thanking you for giving me the gift of seeing things simply for what they were. Prior to our session I was feeling completely overwhelmed about the transition of returning to life with a career. You helped me to realize that my self-doubt could sabotage my reality and that I had to create the future I wanted with positive affirmations not negative thoughts. Even better you allowed me to see all the wonderful possibilities I could bring to my children which I hadn’t even considered. I am truly grateful for the illumination you brought to this situation and allowing me to meet the change with confidence and a new perspective. I am now happily searching for a job and know that when the time comes I will embrace the change. Thank you for guiding me to remove the fear from returning to work and inspiring me to see the value within myself”. All my love.
“I just want you to know it’s been over two years since my Pranic Healing treatment and I have been virtually free of the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy since then. No longer do I wake from the pain and burning in my hands that I had had for many years. I had tried various prescription painkillers and none helped for more than a few hours. Several had serious side effects that I wouldn’t tolerate. I had my doubts concerning it’s (P/H) efficacy but just a few minutes into the comfortable non-invasive treatment the discomfort subsided and has not returned I thank you so much for introducing me to this (Marvelous Wonderful Magical Holistic) treatment”.
“Vesna is truly a mentor, role model, person of passion and wisdom. Vesna has been a spiritual advisor and personal mentor of mine for many years. With her inner spirit of connectedness to the outer world she has the ability to slow things down, see things from an perspective of peace and patience along with allowing the the space for grace. I owe a tremendous amount to Vesna for always allowing time for support and guidance. She is a blessing to us all”.
