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.
Process and Integration Work
It´s all about the integration, to really embody and manifest the experienced into your daily life.
Integration happens when experiences you made on an energetical, emotional and physical level, are brought into consciousness.
We will support you in the process work with different techniques and ways, how you can work through your process with self empowerment. We will introduce you to techniques like breathwork, shadow work, inner child work, inquiry work, Kundalini Yoga and guided meditations. With this tools you are enabled to explore your inner landscape more and more by working on your personal topics.
Cacao & Breathwork Ceremony
Cacao ceremonies are originated all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America. The spirit of Cacao was used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes, inner awakening and creative guidance. The heart opening medicine can unlock euphoric states, release emotions and enabels you to connect to our higher self, our wisdom within, the loving energy in our body and will also silence the mind. Cacao has been used for centuries to heal the mental, physical and spiritual body.
Through deep, circulating breathing, we increase the oxygen supply in the brain and in the entire bloodstream. The neural network is stimulated and more hormones are released. Among other things, anandamides, also known as the “bliss hormone”. From the state of connectedness, emotions, stress and anxiety can be released, our own awareness and creativity are increased and we come into a feeling of inner peace, love and compassion. Deeper truths can show up.
“Our breathing is the direct connection to pure consciousness.”

About 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.
We invite you to our finca “Huerto de los Tardios”, which is located in the natural reserve Sierra de la Grazalema near the white village Zahara de la Sierra.
