There is Always Something…

… says the Ego. The high potential of our work with the Sacred Plant Medicines keeps expanding and impressing us. Like in last weekend’s retreat, when we guided a very deep healing process for a beautiful group of people. We were able to go very deep because of the strong group support and the way that the group functioned as one big, natural organism, each and every person with a specific roll serving the whole, transforming stuff on a personal […]

Ayahuasca tegen stress en depressies

Het is fijn dat er na de uitzending van een populair amusementsprogramma over Ayahuasca (vol eenzijdige, ongefundeerde, uit de context gehaalde en veelal onjuiste informatie, wat behoorlijk wat negatieve gevolgen heeft gehad voor het gebruik van Ayahuasca in Nederland) en andere populaire mainstream programma’s en sensatiebeluste artikelen in de media, nu op een positievere manier aandacht en wetenschappelijk onderzoek komt naar de werking van dit potente medicijn. De onderzoekster praat in wetenschappelijke Jip en Janneke taal en noemt Ayahuasca nog […]

Regaining sensuality & sexual feelings

“Yama lead the retreat professional and is committed with her heart to the work  and the women in the group.  She and her assistances (Karin, Sophie en Marie-Louise) took care of a warm  and safe bedding during all the retreat. Surrounded with this warmth I felt welcome to open myself for new experiences. Yama invites to explore while being in this safe bedding with only women. I experienced it, and it is true healing!!! I regained female power, my sensuality […]

Sacred Union

It’s high time to restore the natural balance within and outside of ourselves and create a new and healthy living world. TOGETHER. Each and every one of us, MEN and WOMEN alike. We all have our own share in this, we create our world together.  All of the work with Women and Men separate that I have been sharing about in my recent post about TRUST has ONE MAIN GOAL: to support a healthy, safe, loving and sacred UNION among […]

About TANTRA and SHAMANISM

The Path of Tantra is calling me to be fully present. Of course it does! Tantra is a deeply integrated part of my life. For me (and in me) the Path of Tantra and the Path of Plant Medicine are one and the same but sometimes one of the two is a bit more on the forefront. The last few months I have been in the jungle working with the sacred plants and for over two of the three months […]

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 […]

What’s in a name?

“De retreat van Yama en Zelday in november stond mede in het teken van je Naam. Hoe heet je? Past die naam bij je? Ik ben er in gaan kijken, voelen en mediteren en met hulp van een lange lijst van namen en betekenissen ben ik uitgekomen bij een Naam die mij past. Die mij kracht, steun en vertrouwen biedt. Die mij herinnert aan mijn reis, mijn doel. Ik heb hem eerst een poos voor mezelf gehouden, daarna met mijn […]

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 […]

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 […]
