Plant Medicine Ceremony

In these Plant Ceremonies you are connecting with sacred healing plants from the Peruvian Amanzon. By drinking the sacred and powerful medicine you enter the worlds of the Master Plants, which enable you to work on a deeper level of consciousness and experience profound healing, clearing and transformation on a physical, psychological, emotional, energetical and spiritual level. It is aswell about the transformation of old patterns and removing of blockages.

The medicine opens you up to your inner truth and connects you to the understanding and blessings of life.
Through the integration of the teachings and the wisdom of the plants, this can be the starting point to change your life and live it in full potential.

You will have the possibility to drink the Plant Medicine, but it´s not a have to. You can as well participate in ceremony without drinking the medicine. The work still will be done.

    About us

    The ceremonies are held by Metsa Yaka and Sanken Tsoma. Both will share their medicine with you and guide you through the ceremonies and your process.

    Metsa Yaka

    For me as a passionate inquiry work practitioner, coming from the shamanic approach through the work with Ayahuasca and various Master Plants, as well from the work with the Horse Medicine, the intention is always, to get to the source of things to really transform in order to grow.
    My work is not based on a technique, I let myself be guided and follow my intuition what is needed in the moment.

    Sanken Tsoma

    I have been working intensively with plant medicines in a shamanic approach for 9 years. While studying various Master Plants in Master Plant Dietas and energy work, I was initiated into this type of work by maestros of the Shipibo and Inca traditions. My focus is always on personal and spiritual growth, expansion and inner and outer transformation. My purpous here is to share what I am learning to support people on their healing journey.

    Research Study & Membership

    All our retreats and ceremonies serve as research studies in order to explore and evaluate the effect of the shared plants and practices as holistic healing techniques. Our aim is to support the holistic healing of body mind and soul with alternative practices, to promote a balance in life and to support an alternative healthy lifestyle that is in harmony with our nature.

    For this, we currently have a collaboration with the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University, Department of Psychiatry, to evaluate whether plant medicine ceremonies with ayahuasca improve mental health and overall well-being. Participation in the study is of course voluntary for the participants of this retreat and not a requirement. All data collected are kept strictly confidential, anonymous and secure.

    Our retreats, ceremonies and individual treatments do not replace any medical treatment.
    To participate in our retreats / research studies, it is necessary for legal reasons to become a member of our association.
    For this we also offer a free short-term membership. You can select your membership type later in the registration form.
