Victoria’s first introduction into the world of healing was through plant medicine. Knowing she had found her path, Victoria explored the world, working with different psychedelic plant medicines over the span of a decade, with both indigenous and modern teachers. In 2016 she set out to complete her Yoga teacher training in Bali, which allowed her to gain further insight into the different lenses used in spirituality. After returning to her home in Vancouver Island to share these gifts, she continued to peruse her fascination with plant medicines.

After taking time to honor her own process and growth, Victoria stepped into the role of a medicine practitioner. In early 2019 she completed her Kambo training and certification through IAKP in Thailand. Later that year, Victoria then completed her first training with the powerful medicine 5-MeO-DMT, said to the be most powerful psychoactive experience known to man. Longing to deepen her understanding of the medicine, she continued 2 more consecutive trainings over the span of a year. Deeply moved by the force of this medicine, she immersed herself in the toad community, learning all she could in order to best serve this powerful medicine to the world.

Deeply intrigued by Joseph Campbells work, she studied the Hero’s Journey at length and later applied it as a geographical lens in her work to assists participants to effortlessly move into their own innermost workings. Choosing to continue her education to best support others, she enrolled in a yearlong psychedelic integration training, where she chose to specialize on the 5-MeO-DMT integration process. Her dedication to her craft earned her a position with the international psychedelic wellness company  Kaivalya Kollectiv, where she works as both the head of education and a retreat leader, applying all she has learned over her years.

Victoria is the founder and president of Kaivalya’s education platform F.I.V.E (5-MeO-DMT Information and Vital Education). Her mission at F.I.V.E is to provide the world with a centralized hub for all resources and education on 5-MeO-DMT, in hopes of bringing awareness to the ethics, integrity, and the safety of 5-MeO-DMT.



Psychedelic Spotlight

In this episode of the Psychedelic Spotlight podcast, Swati sits down with leaders from Kaivalya Kollectiv, “a multifaceted company focusing on psychedelic wellness, education”, and more. She speaks with Victoria Wueschner, a 5-MeO-DMT Facilitator and the Founder of FIVE, and Joël Brierre, CEO of Kaivalya Kollectiv.

Before the interview, Swati went through a ceremony at Tandava Retreats, and experienced the psychedelic 5-MeO-DMT. She then experienced the integration period with the assistance of Joël and Victoria. In the discussion, Victoria and Joël discuss how to prepare for a ceremony, the nuances of the 5MeO-DMT experience and industry, and how to integrate the experience afterwards.

They also talk about who can benefit the most from a 5-MeO-DMT experience, and who it’s best not suited for. Kaivalya Kollectiv considers 5-MeO-DMT to be a powerful and sacred medicine, and believes that its intentional use can help many individuals.
