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 […]

Madre Ayahuasca is a great teacher

Monique Konings reviewed ActWild — 5 ***** “I just returned from my first Ayahuasca Retreat. I chose to do that with Yama and Zelday because I trust their guidance completely, which is important so I could feel safe and go deep. It was so very special. Words fail to describe the experience of meeting this very beautiful and wise Plant Spirit. Yama and Zelday treat the Plant Spirits with immense respect and teach us to do so as well. Their songs […]

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 […]

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 […]
