Meet Irene Vizcarra of Holy Wild and We Flourish Collective

Today we’d like to introduce you to Irene Vizcarra.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Irene. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I am a Ceremonialist, Green Witch and Holistic Entrepreneur, I never thought this is what I would become! I was raised in a traditional Mexican immigrant household, and somehow I’ve managed to surprise even myself with my life path.

I’ve always been one of those people that doesn’t settle, I feel this world is full of experiences to be had and beautiful lessons to learn. As a result of that, I become very discontent when I sense mediocrity. I love to question things and expand my awareness of the world we live in through the answers that come.

In 2017 I had completed a Spiritual Psychology program at the University of Santa Monica (2015) and was finishing an apprenticeship on Sacred Plant Medicine with The Gaia School of Healing, CA. At this point, I was just following my curiosity with no plans to change career paths.

I was working in the corporate world managing a mortgage company. I had a leadership position, was making good money and had a great team, but there was something missing. I knew that there was more for me because even though I had the things I was supposed to have when I was honest with myself the truth was that I was unfulfilled. I was just going through the motions; I enjoyed my social status, but there was an aliveness and soul purpose that was missing. I knew I was capable of more joy & passion in my work.

That’s the year that I felt strongly that I needed to quit and make space to find my true life’s calling. It was a huge leap– I didn’t have a clear plan, and for someone so career & success-oriented this was terrifying, but I just knew that I needed to make space for my calling to find me.

At the time, my only clue as to how to move forward was that I loved ritual, and had fallen in love with studying medicinal plants. I loved learning about their biophysical properties as well as their energetic properties. I continued to focus my energy on those studies, I enrolled in more courses and eventually decided to share what I was learning with my community. This is when Holy Wild was born, with the mission to connect people to the beauty & magic of plants, through ritual.

The more I created the clearer it became, my sweet spot, what really lit me up, was working with the energetic blueprint of plants in order to live more empowered lives. I had discovered how incredibly beautiful it is to have a relationship with the natural world, and to use that to create more beauty in my own life & in the life of others.

Today I am creating energetic medicine & ritual objects through Holy Wild, leading Ceremonies & rituals, and just launched a second business, We Flourish Collective, where I invite the community to join me in exploring their spirituality through connection, nourishment and Earth Wisdom.

Has it been a smooth road?
My journey definitely hasn’t been linear, personally or professionally.

Professionally I had to be very patient and allow things to unfold in a very organic way, instead of what I was used to, which was the masculine way of creating– by pushing, working hard & making things happen. I found that every time I tried to control the process I was met with resistance and dead ends. It was frustrating! I didn’t understand what I was doing wrong.

After doing a lot of inner work (working with plants, Spiritual Psychology, breathwork journeys with Erin Telford, & Shamanic Womb Journeys with Anabel Vizcarra) I realized that I had to allow time to undo all the toxic patterns I had internalized, so as to not carry them into my current work. I focused on my healing journey for a year and a half before I started having breakthroughs & clarity in my purpose.

Looking back, I understand why that was all necessary. I needed to experience what it meant to lead a nourishing life, to regain my sovereignty and to deepen my trust in the invisible realms in order to offer the work I offer now. I had to learn to honor the magic and power of leading life from a primarily yin space, in order to model it to others.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Holy Wild and We Flourish Collective – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Holy Wild is known for organic & ethical ritual products made with plant magic- candles, elixirs, potions, aura sprays, anointing oils, ritual kits, & amulets– all items that help people lead empowered & intentional lives.

Through my relationship with the plant & spirit realms I create magical offerings to support people’s intentions of living heart-centered lives and creating the realities they wish to experience. As a Ceremonialist, I also lead community rituals and ceremonies.

My newest offering, We Flourish Collective, creates an in-person sanctuary space where women can experience sisterhood, nourish their souls, explore their spirituality, and connect more deeply to themselves through Earth-centered wisdom.

I’m most proud of the positive contribution I make as a Holistic Entrepreneur. Not only am I creating more beauty & magic in the world, but I’m also supporting organic agriculture, protecting endangered medicinal plants through partnering with United Plant Savers, and planting trees every time someone makes a purchase, through partnership with Tree Sisters. From 2018 to now we have planted 743 trees.
