My 2017

Being in between jungles for a couple of days, I take my time to reflect on the past year as I always do in the days before the new year. 2017 was quite a ride. Again! In January 2017 I was with my Kaula Tantra Family in the Sacred Valley of Peru for Sacred Medicine work. Although we had a beautiful retreat, I had a pretty tough time, trying to make any sense to what was happening between me and […]

Our Native Medicine Plants

VISION OF DUTCH MEDICINE PLANTS Healing Plants are used all over the world in Sacred Ritual context to divine the future, enter spirit realms, learn the deepest truths of ourselves and the Universe. They enable us to create true healing which goes beyond the abilities of modern medicine and its reliance on intrusive treatments and often damaging drugs. In this last Master Plant Dieta with Noya Rao I had a clear vision about working with Ayahuasca in conjunction with our […]

Ayahuasca and Master Plant Dieta

A Master Plant Dieta is not the same as an Ayahuasca Diet In this post I will share the difference as well as some more about my own retreat Master Plant Dieta with Noya Rao. The Ayahuasca Diet is based on a list of necessary precautions and strict food recommendations, based on scientific evidence that they are essential for safety*. It was developed as a reaction to the quickly growing Ayahuasca Tourism to keep people safe. It‘s role is to […]

Sacred Plant Diets

What will I be doing for Christmas? I will be dieting Sacred Healing Plants in the Amazon Half December I’ll leave again for Peru, this time for three months. To celebrate the Christmas Holidays in my own peculiar way (puking in isolation, hahaha) and to submerge myself more and deeper into the world of the Amazonian Plant Spirits by doing several ‘dietas’ (plant diets) so as to learn a lot more and bring the healing powers of those plants to […]

Mother Ayahuasca Retreat

“Life changing is nog een eufemisme geloof ik. Zo enorm dankbaar dat ik mijn bescheiden bijdrage in liefde mocht geven en wat een enorm groot cadeau kreeg ik totaal onverwacht in de schoot geworpen. Dank Dank Dank.”, 27th of November 2017 Ingrid Coppieters * “Liefste Deva Yama, wat ben je fantastisch. Dankjewel voor je moed om, samen met Hans, zo’n veilige bedding te creëren om met de groep diep het medicijn in te duiken. Ons te gidsen met de icaros, […]

Facing challenges

Since I am deeply connecting with the Medicine Plants I experience more health, truth and alignment in my life than ever. I feel intense grateful for the purification and thorough cleansing and when I see where I come from (25 years of struggling with a severe bipolar disorder!) it is nothing less than a MIRACLE where I find myself today…! When I started falling into that deep relationship with the healing plants from the Amazon, I did not have any […]

Sacred Union, Divine Union

Time for true healing! Healing of women and men, and the Sacred Feminine and Sacred Masculine that we both represent within our different embodiments, we come from the same source and have the same Essence. Time to honour the Sacred Union of men and women. And to balance that Divine Union within ourselves. I have been searching wether to share my #metoo-stories… and if so, how. The huge ones which created a lot of trauma in my life, the repetitions […]

deep level of sisterhood

“Dear Yama, Thank you for your lovely songs and caring, kind words and sharing at Vrouwenfestival Lorelei. And much obliged for creating a women circle where we could feel a deep level of sisterhood. Realizing again that the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all bring joy, kiss our soul and have the potential to inspire. Learning from you and my lovely sisters, that the […]

Highly recommended

“Dear Yama, thank you for fully being you and that way being an example of all the infinit possibilities we all have in ourselves to make different choices and change for the better. For your love and clarity. For your courage and humor. And all other qualities you use in your sessions and ceremonies and retreats. Highly recommended to people (men and women ) who love to know more of themselves and the healing field and for that are willing […]

Toewijding, integer en humor

“Hoe kan ik in woorden vangen wat ik ervaren heb? Ik merk dat het me stil maakt. En tegelijkertijd wil ik laten horen hoe bijzonder het was om een week met Yama en 11 andere vrouwen in Portugal te verblijven tijdens een Womb Healing. Ik ben letterlijk in het diepe gesprongen, last minute aangemeld en me overgegeven aan wat zou gaan komen. Ik had niet echt een idee of verwachting. Wat me o.a. is bijgebleven is de begeleiding van Yama: […]
