About Brain Filters and Infinite Wisdom 

Waking up early but slowly, we felt so grateful for yesterday’s Cacao & Sound Healing Ceremony. There is much healing in the mild and friendly, heart-opening medicine of ceremonial grade Sacred Cacao! Cacao is such a beautiful and gentle heart opener. It invites us to relax and to (little by little) let go of our tensions and sink from our minds into the sensory awareness of our bodies.. It was so good to see many of you and to journey, […]

Yama op beide Lorelei zomerfestivals 2018

Who are you without all your masks? And why are you here? In mijn werk ben ik graag een bijdrage aan de heling van de Sacred Union tussen Vrouwen én Mannen. En daarvan is het werk onder Sisters (en Brothers) onderling een belangrijk onderdeel! Lorelei is een prachtige plek waar we met alleen vrouwen onder elkaar even helemaal in onze Female Forces kunnen duiken en elkaar inspireren. Ook dit jaar geef ik tijdens beide zomer-edities van het Lorelei Vrouwenfestival (van 21 t/m 23 augustus en 24 t/m 26 […]

Huachuma Ceremonies in Chavin de Huántar

Lose your head and enter in Heaven Last week I experienced the deepest ceremonies imaginable with the beautiful Teacher Plant Huachuma. Huachuma is a cactus that hails from the Andes region and has been used ceremonially for many centuries. The word ‘huachuma’ translates to ‘removing the head’ (wach– meaning ‘remove’ and –uma meaning ‘head’ in Quechua) which metaphorically might mean the death of the ego. As a result of contact with Spanish Catholic conquistadors it is now widely known as ‘San Pedro’, after […]

Our 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

“Tweede Ayahuasca retraite bij Yama Voorhorst en Zelday Hans Karssen. Tijdens de reis voel ik me beetje bij beetje terugkeren naar mijn zorgeloze, vrije, spontane, enthousiaste prille kindertijd, mijn centrum. De tijd vóór het leven ingewikkelder en pijnlijker leek te worden, waartegen ik beschermd moest worden door verregaande defensiemechanismen en overlevingsstrategieën uit te dokteren. Oef! Gelukkig waren mijn hersenen er om me bij deze moeilijke klus te helpen. Althans dat dacht ik… Mijn strijd met connectie. Overtuigd als ik ben […]

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 […]

Love and Clarity

“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 […]
