Mother, Child, Witch, Elder, Sister

“The first time I met Yama was during a Womb Wisdom Ceremony. I immediately felt safe and held to go deep (and looking around me I wasn’t the only one). She knows how to open up a deep and profound healing space, where I feel she is a Medicine Woman on many levels and I am not only speaking to the plant medicines she works with… Yama carries the unconditional love and compassion of a Mother, the curiosity and playfulness […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Womb Wisdom Retreat Portugal

“Yama is an amazing sister who understands sisterhood so well. She knows how to encourage, to uplift and to love. Because she radiates love, she has so much to give and she inspires you to live your life to the fullest. Deep bow for her journey and share her knowledge with us. Thank you so much for being you.”, Oktober 2017 – Marja Wijnhof, Olival das Hortas / Mama Earth Project Portugal (host en deelneemster Womb Wisdom Retreat in Portugal, Oktober […]

Trouwbelofte aan mezelf

Toen ik achtien jaar geleden op het punt stond om te trouwen, leek mijn suikerzoete meisjesdroom opeens een stuk minder aantrekkelijk. Als ik inzoomde op de bruiloft zag ik weerzinwekkende beelden van sketches van mijn jeugdvrienden, en mijn aanstaande schoonfamilie die zich heldhaftig door een gammel A-B-C-rijm worstelde. De A is van aanzoek, die is je gedaan… de B is van bruiloft, die beginnen kan gaan… de C is van chemie, die was er bij jullie meteen… de Z is […]

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 […]

SACRED UNION RITUAL

“Vandaag iets heel bijzonders meegemaakt. Een sacred union ritual and womb healing ceremony waarin eerst mannen en vrouwen afzonderlijk met elkaar deelden welke angsten en pijn ze uit het verleden nog met zich meedroegen. Waarna wij als mannen een veilige plek creerden waar de vrouwen hun pijn en angsten ook in het bijzijn van mannen konden delen. Mooi om te zien wat er in een omgeving van vertrouwen en zonder oordelen kan ontstaan en hoe iedereen zijn angsten en pijn […]

Truth, no more drama and stories

“I made a commitment to set myself free from all the conditionings, and take every single opportunity to step out from my comfort zone. I took in so much ideas from the society and parents, and created my reality based on those stories. It’s time to let go of all the conditionings. Knowing that I am 100% responsible for my life is empowering. No one to blame. I live by truth, not dramas/stories. There is no way back on this […]
