This week we have Anna Stoka on the podcast! Anna is childhood friends with my wife Sarah and has become a great friend to me as well. In this episode, we dive deep into Anna’s experience with Ayahuasca and the abrupt awakening that changed her life.

Anna is a school teacher turned stay at home mom. She now runs her Young Living Oils business, Inner Wild + Co, from home with her kids and husband. Anna has an intense passion for health, healing, plants, oils and living a low-toxin life has meant that she speaks and shares from her heart always. To her, there is no other way.

Over the last 6 years Anna has been on a journey of healing.. emotionally and physically. Although it wasn't until She learned to add the spiritual healing piece to the puzzle that she started to finally feel like healing was possible. Her path has been one with many tears and setbacks but Anna is slowly learning THAT is her experience. Sometimes falling, but ALWAYS picking herself up. And slowly learning to do it all with love.

In this episode, we discussed:

  • Anna and Sarah’s friendships and the parallel lives that they lived
  • Anna’s childhood and unique religious upbringing
  • Postnatal depression and Anna’s search for healing
  • A trip to Soltara and experience with Ayahuasca 
  • How Anna came back to herself and began her healing process
  • An intense final ceremony and awakening 
  • Returning home from Soltara and a difficult integration process
