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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Toewijding, integer en humor

 Suzanne Wohrmann heeft ActWild beoordeeld — 5 ***** “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 Wisdom Retreat begeleid door Yama. 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 […]

Ontvangen worden

“Een week geleden heb ik een healingsessie van Yama Voorhorst en Hans Karssen mogen ontvangen. Wat een ontvangen was dat…ik voel me zo dankbaar voor deze ochtend! De prachtige klanken van de gong,  didgeridoo en instrumenten uit de jungle die op zoveel lagen binnenkomen, trillen, losmaken en soort van ‘re-organiseren’.  De afgestemde liefdevolle diepe helende aanraking, waardoor naar de oppervlakte mocht komen wat diep in mn systeem opgeslagen lag en er zó naar verlangende gezien, gevoeld, ge-uit te worden.  De […]

Womb Wisdom Retreat Portugal

Women Ceremonies at Lorelei Festival

“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 […]
