About Us

At Holo Life, we’re a mental wellness company that supports our clients to navigate the new landscape of psychedelic-assisted therapies. 

 “10 % of the work is done by the medicine, 90% is what you do with the insights in your life” Carlos Alvear MD, Founder of Ibogaine Aftercare center in MX.

 Mission: We believe it is not just preparing for your journey, but the aftercare, the integration work and the support through all your psychedelic care is the Holo Difference. We have partners in group therapy/ integration, mindfulness techniques, breathwork, somatic therapies, and many many more. 

 Values: Through the power of psychedelics and other therapies, Holo helps its clients address the root cause of their suffering and supports a transformation/ new understanding of their challenges into an entirely new reality. By combing neuroscience, informed by addiction treatment and alternative mental health therapeutics alongside the intelligence of plant medicines, Holo focuses on restoring well-being and transformational growth.

Principles

Integrative Health

We are guided by neuroscience and neurobiology and how they point to the central nervous system’s integral role in behavioral health and well-being.

Our approach combines the insights of Western science with the ancient traditions of plant medicine to create a new paradigm for mental health treatment, improved consciousness and self-betterment.

Integrity

Holo is committed to protecting your privacy. We honor this sacred trust before, during and after your Holo experience.

Safety is a fundamental principle of all Holo’s programming and services. Our therapeutic staff comprises professionals with designations from recognized licensing bodies.

Our Pledge

Holo respects the lineage of plant medicine and is committed to supporting the Indigenous and local communities of the western hemisphere. Since ancient times, Indigenous peoples have known that nature is an important factor in wellness and recovery; the restorative power of nature and our relationship with the natural world are fundamental to our collective journey. We acknowledge their stewardship throughout the ages and recognize their displacement as a historical colonialist transgression. We are deeply committed to and invested in giving back through our program of Reciprocity, which is designed specifically to address the social needs of the communities in which we operate.

We seek to address systems that marginalize individuals and to identify under-represented persons in our care and within our teams. We strive to remove barriers that prevent full participation in our programs and within our organization. We are an inclusive organization.

 All individuals are made to feel valued, supported and welcomed.
