In each cohort, you’ll join our 8-week container (2 weeks virtual preparation + 1 week in Costa Rica + 5 weeks virtual integration) with 40+ inspirational leaders, entrepreneurs, and creators for a deeply transformational ayahuasca retreat, also known as a Journey at 1heart. We’ll welcome you to the beautiful, safe, and natural setting of serene Costa Rica for our epic Journeys.
This epic experience brings together high-level conscious leaders at the world’s most innovative companies with the sacred plant medicine called ayahuasca integrated with many other ancient and modern modalities.
You’ll leave with a deeper sense of excitement and purpose for what’s ahead and beyond!
Together we will Journey Beyond to explore our individual and collective purpose deeply. Every participant will be transformed. The lives they live, the work they do, the community they’re creating, and the examples they set will transform the world.
– Gerard Adams, Founder of ‘Leaders Create Leaders’
Listen to Gerard’s 1heart experience on our podcast
This all-inclusive, 8-week human accelerator (1-week of in-person retreat + 7-week pre/post virtual program) is designed to fully elevate your mind, body, and spirit.
The 8-weeks include 2-weeks of group ayahuasca preparation before the group’s Journey and a 5-week facilitated integration program and mastermind post Journey (additional 1-on-1 private integration coaching available upon request). You will be fully supported by top practitioners in various modalities, beautifully integrated to create peak experiences and positive life transformation.
During our magical Journey week together, you will experience three ayahuasca ceremonies, yoga, meditation, conscious movement, breathwork, shamanic drumming, bio-hacking, and much more.
Your Journey leaders are highly successful entrepreneurs who have built and exited businesses and had their own Journeys transform their lives.
1heart also brings together the best practitioners and facilitators in their space to lead you through deeply transformational work.
The Journey will include many surprises and good ‘ole fashioned fun.’ You’ll enjoy group celebrations, adventurous excursions, a traditional native cacao ceremony/performance, healthy organic culinary delights (vegetarian), and an amazing mastermind group of leaders, entrepreneurs, and change-makers.
Note: a portion of your tuition will go to support the indigenous communities, medicine keepers, and lands who make these experiences possible for all of us. This sacred reciprocity is an important energy exchange that your funds will contribute to to help make this work sustainable and available to more souls.

Your Journey extends far beyond the week we spend physically together in Costa Rica. Your Journey includes the full 8-Week Program and Mastermind, all created to maximize the positive outcomes of your Journey. This includes:
Arrive in Costa Rica deeply prepared for this transformational experience. You’ll receive our 25-page preparation and elevation guides custom-created (readings, journaling prompts, and more) for your Journey ahead. You’ll also participate in virtual video calls with your fellow participants, your Elevation Team leader (alumni who volunteer to return), and a smaller group.
At 1heart, we pride ourselves on our ayahuasca preparation guidelines, group calls, and support. How to prepare for ayahuasca is a big deal. The more committed you are to your work leading up to our transformational ayahuasca retreat, the more potent the ayahuasca medicine will be able to work with you.
We’ll also provide a guide for your ayahuasca diet once you’ve booked your spot at 1heart’s ayahuasca retreat. The ayahuasca diet is also known as a dieta, and it’s a crucial piece of preparing for ayahuasca ceremonies. A dieta is typically asked to be followed for the two weeks leading up to your ayahuasca experience and for a week or two after. However, a minimum of five days of engaging with a dieta is highly encouraged to best support yourself for these profound, powerful, and transformative experiences.
A dieta asks you to not only remove certain food and drinks, like red meat, alcohol, coffee, dairy, processed sugars, and other substances but also encourages you to cut out certain habits and behaviors that may be addictive or overstimulating. Some examples are sexual intimacy (with another or yourself), excessive screen time, nicotine usage, sleep aids, certain pharmaceuticals like SSRIs, and other usages of recreational medicines (cannabis, mushrooms, LSD, etc.).
An ayahuasca diet is intrinsically tied to an ayahuasca retreat or experience because by putting constraints on our food and lifestyle, certain responses, reactions, cravings, stories, and other psychological patterns begin to rise to the surface. In short, we become much more sensitive to ourselves and our relationships with everything ‘outside’ ourselves. When we can’t rely on certain habits or substances to ‘cope,’ we start to see why it is we need to cope in the first place. This reaffirms a common saying that ayahuasca begins working with and on you the moment you say “Yes” to sitting in an ayahuasca ceremony.
And three big reasons to respect the dieta are: you’re respecting yourself, you’re respecting the process of your ayahuasca experience to come, and you’re making it easier for your mind, body, heart, and soul to receive the Spirit of the Medicine. By having a responsible ayahuasca diet, you’re showing up for yourself AND making it easier for the power of ayahuasca to work with you. The fewer obstacles you have in the way, the easier the Medicine flows within your being.
While the water of a flowing river full of boulders and blockages will find its way, the flow of water will move more fluidly when those obstacles have been removed, loosened, or lessened. The same holds true when we drink a cup of ayahuasca. By removing certain things from our life, or at least addressing them and minimizing their impact, we make it easier on ourselves to receive the potent nature of ayahuasca.
We preach that the sustained transformation from your ayahuasca ceremonies and 1heart experience comes from the commitment to your integration period and process. We’ve intentionally crafted a world-class integration program to help you land your learnings into your new life.
After the Journey is where the biggest growth opportunities occur. 1heart has designed our group integration program to allow you to best implement the breakthroughs and insights you experience on the Journey into your lives back home. You’ll stay connected with your new Tribe via our live virtual group Living Beyond program. You’ll be fully supported by our team, your elevation team and team leader, and a buddy from the Journey, helping you stay on track in making powerful positive changes in your life.
To be one of the most comprehensive programs for life elevation with sacred plant medicine, we also offer additional 1-on-1 private integration coaching with vetted professionals and experienced medicine facilitators upon request (beyond our 5-week group integration program) for those who want to dive deeper into what they want to shift and continually breakthrough.
Alex Maceda, who holds a Stanford MBA and held executive positions in Silicon Valley, shares how her approach to integration led to a significant shift in the aligned and fulfilling life she now lives.
Price ranges from $4,977 – $8,777 per person.
Once accepted to a Journey, the actual price is based on room type selection.
