Felt very safe

I want to thank the entire team very much for the amazing experience. The ayahuasca ceremonies took me another step further in my healing process. I felt very safe and this allowed me to surrender completely. It was so nice that there was so much guidance and that the group of participants was not large, it felt familiar to share personal things with the group, this again helped to get deeper into the process. I now notice afterwards that I can be nicer to myself, and for me the best thing: I was able to enjoy my children intensely much more than before. All the painful feelings and associated stress, self-rejection, etc, seem to have moved a bit more into the background. I hope I dare to do it again!

Great love, full attention and divine music.

I've been writing before about my experiences at Sattvaya. This was the 2nd time. It's all so good here. A word (again) about the counselling. With such care, it feels so safe and oh so incredibly friendly. There is a razor-sharp sense of whether one of them 'needs' to sit with me for a while, or whether they are just giving me all the space I need during my journey. This is all done with great love and full attention. Perfectly balanced. Ah yes, I cannot resist saying nothing at all about the music: truly divine! When I look back at what I have seen and experienced during the trips, the following words come to mind now, for example: Recognition and Confidence.

Again, a deep, deep bow of gratitude!

I feel I have a lighter heart

Overall I can describe the journey as intense and unique. Am grateful for having had the opportunity to participate and have a clearer idea and focus on where I can deepen my healing process after the ceremony. It is too soon to have full clarity on the experience as the effects are very still there and integration is in full process.

During the ceremony I felt supported and guided by a beautiful team of spaceholders. The music played and made is a beautiful part of the journeys, drawing you further in and nourishing and cherishing your healing process whilst in the journey. Allowing space for stuck emotions to be released was very powerful and after the ceremony I feel I have a lighter heart.

The integration circles are key to your own integration process. It's beautiful to share your experiences and hear what other participants have experienced.

The surroundings allow space for walks in nature or just charging your batteries in a relaxed environment.

Music and love ❤️💙

I knew that I need to try Aya. But did not know wher to go. When I heard about Sattvaya, I knew it is the right place for me. And I was not wrong. Did not expect anything from the group, session, people, place,... But was really positive surprise. The place is amazing (exactly what you need at that time), the nature, perfect place for walking, being with yourself. I was feeling really save, confortable, could express my feelings, had a huge connection with people in the group. Ronald and his team took excellent care of us. I am still surprised about how they knew exactly when to come and give exactly what was needed. And above all the music, that was amazing, no words can describe it. What I gained: peace with myself, in my mind, I stopped the conversation with myself (negative ones), now I have a need of meditations, need of going alone to the nature, need to listen myself, my intuition.

I’m really glad that I chose Sattvaya for my first experience with plant medicine and I can strongly recommend Ronald and his team. Big thank you to them. I will definitely be back one day. Music, people will stay with me forever. Forever grateful for amazing experience.

With love. AHO ❤️

 The guides were deeply genuinely caring.

I always thought I wasn’t ready for the Medicine but all of a sudden it called me. I was a bit anxious but the setting made it easy to surrender. The guides were deeply genuinely caring for me and the other participants. There was an enormous space for our own process and for me it was a deeply profound experience that helped me further in my path and healing. I will definitely do this again in my life. I can highly recommend this centre. It’s casual, non dogmatic yet very experienced.

My life’s most memorable moments.

Ronald, Yoka and the team are angels in human form. You can tell they are doing plant medicine, ayahuasca ceremonies because they have so much knowledge and wisdom to share with those of us who are in the beginning of their enlightenment journeys. They do this from their heart and they give their everything before, during, and after the ceremonies to ensure you leave there as the best version of yourself.

There are no judgements, no expectations, just teachings that you get the answers mother Aya wants to show you. Each of us are in different paths and therefore we all will receive different messages from her.

Thanks to them, I was able to have such powerful journey. Met with Mother Aya and the spiritual powers and had my life’s most memorable moments (even more magical and two childbirths! :) ) in addition to adding new life long family members; Ronald, Yoka, their team, and all the other eleven participants.

Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for being inspiring and amazing journey partners, path finders, and knowledge and wisdom light carriers. Until we meet again,

AHO 🙏🏻✨🌞😇❤️

Loving and magical experience!

Wow what a special ceremony.

My first journey with mother Aya. The journey was beautiful, intense, intense, emotional, loving but above all magical! I was able to release so much. First of all, the group connection was super nice, it really is a safe space where you can be who you are, without shame or misunderstanding. You also feel this with the guidance. The team was so incredibly loving and experienced! You really are in good hands. Everything is fine, you feel heard and seen. This is very important when you go on a journey.

Also the music was perfect. Really perfect! The music subconsciously affects your journey so much and Ronald knows exactly how to play the music. The setting is super warm and relaxed. I have never met such a warm, nice place and people. Even though my journey was very intense and I was a bit panicked at times, I knew and felt that the siege was there for me and supported me through it.

I am so incredibly happy to have experienced this first journey at the right place! For me, no other place but Sattvaya!

Big thanks and love for the team and participants <3

Loving and caring staff, wonderful music - 5 star rating

This was my 4th time at Sattvaya healing. I just love going to Sattvaya as the location and the accommodation are 5 star and keeps Improving with every vist.
The staff are so kind loving and caring. The guidance from the staff during the ceremonies is so good that it gives you a safe and loving environment feeling. Ronald plays the most wonderful music for that extra experience. Even at somepoints the music is enough to guide you on your journey.

Well for my 4th time I knew before I went to the retreat is was going to be a difficult and a challenging weekend for me.
In the weeks running up the the retreat I had started remembering bad childhood memories and didn't realy understand why.
At the retreat after sharing with the group and staff it became clear that I had to face my childhood fears and abuse from my father.

During my journey I was shown lots of bad memories that I had blocked out as a child. I was made by ayahuasca to face each and everyone of my fears. When his is done I would be free to move on with my life and stop living in the passed.

After the ceremonies I can say now that I feel free and content with my self my mind and body feel so at peace with my self.
Now I feel free happy and confident enough to move on in life and not to look at the passed but only to the future.

Living happy and free ✨️ 😌 ☺️ 🍀🙏

excellent care and support during and after the retreat

I have never experienced anything quite like this. The journeys I took were beautiful and allowed me to observe my thoughts and feelings from new perspectives. I felt lighter, more energized and much more curious about plant medicine after this retreat. Ronald and his team took excellent care of the journeyers and really supported us before, during and after our retreat. I’m really glad that I chose Sattvaya for my first experience with plant medicine.

True compassion and intense love, it was Magical!

Words cannot justify the devine experience I had during the two days of Ayahuasca ceremony with Sattvaya. I attained spiritual enlightment and was guided to the truth of life by Mama Ayahuasca. True compassion and intense love was felt throughout, although it was not easy and required full surrenduring during the journey. 

The team of Sattvaya was outstanding in its guidance, preparations and carrying throughout the whole retrait. The beautiful music, the continuous care and love from Mariane/Joka/Mia, the ambience of the room, the amazing people participating; it was magical!

Thank you so much for this life-changing experience.

All love

The notion of compassion left an important imprint 

My journey with Ayahuasca (my first) was very revealing, freeing and also in the long run very beneficial for my well-being. I’m more aware of my feelings, understanding them and react accordingly. The notion of compassion and how it is the natural human state (compared to ego) was very present during my journey but left an important imprint on my interpersonal relationships.

ik ben gelukkig, voel compassie en veel meer (zelf)liefde

It was in a word: Perfect!

A beautiful safe loving environment with a huge connection with all the people in the group and four lovely ceremony leaders. It was clean, beautiful, cosy, cosy, nice music, lots of love and hugs, delicious food, beautiful living environment, beautiful nature.

All this made for a wonderful trip from the first second on arrival.

The first day with the anahuasca was beautiful, peaceful and many

Spiritual insights. The second day with ayahuasca and Rapéh was intensely happy, intense, beautiful for me. So many insights came together, clarity in my being in my current life within my family system, clarity from past lives.

This was very painful and sad at times, but so beautiful too and enlightening.

To this day it is with me every moment... and the emotional connection with my father has suddenly strengthened enormously (he was with my mother for a day with me and my family today, I got a real hug from him for the first time... we talked about ayahuasca on his initiative and about the connection I feel so strongly with my grandfather, his father.

Everything is running more smoothly than before, I am happy, feel compassion and much more (self) love.

Thank you for all the insights and the space you created here, this is a tremendously valuable gift in my life.

I will definitely be back,

warm welcome and a perfect location

It was a wonderful weekend, great appreciation for the Sattvaya Team to create this space where healing can take place. With a warm welcome and a perfect location for a sacred Plant Medicine. We had two ceremonies with beautiful live music and an integration session afterwards with helped me to take the most out of this experience.

ayahuasca sacred Plant Medicine ceremonie

music is my way of healing

The ceremony was placed in a very peaceful and clean ambient and it was very good organised and prepared. I felt very comfortable, I was just very excited, what is normal. In the first round of the first day, the medicine gave me a very pleasant feeling of floating and I felt lovely vibrations. I felt my body dissolving with the music, which was very helpful to surrender in the journey. I felt confident of going deeper in the journey with the second round. The second round brought me in a strong conflict with my inner fears and blockades and it was hard for me to surrender.

With the help of the guidance I could feel more safe and with less fear. In the live music I found the solution and way out of the self conflict with singing. I found out, that music is my way of healing.

In the second day of the ceremony, I was still processing the journey of the first day, which was very strong. The guidance helped me a lot giving me power and confidence to go into a light journey, that gave me the feeling of bringing peace to myself. The medicine brought me in a deep meditative state, felt being one with myself, with others and with everything. I felt very much compassion with others and self love.

In the next day I felt very light, my muscles were very relaxed and my mind very clear. This state is still there after 3 weeks and I hope keeping it the longest as possible. I am very thankful for this strong experience and would do it again, after working on the issues, that I found out in this weekend.

Thanks for everyone, that shared this experience with me. All of you will be always in my memory.

Much love and Best regards!

A very magical journey and felt suported!

My journey was very magical and I felt supported at all times by the wonderful team. The incessant care and love you gave to all of us was very special and I thank you deeply. This atmosphere was enhanced by the beautiful music played live and otherwise. Should I ever be asked where to do a plant ceremony, I will definitely send them your way. I am so happy I went. It was the best journey I have made in a while.

Positive atmosphere 

The overall experience makes the trip well accomplished. The atmosphere set from day 1 contributes positively to this. The group of people I was with were all initially strange to me. Through the guidance in the circle discussions, the alienation fell away. It quickly became clear that we all had our issues. Space was provided for each of us to share that while respecting everyone's boundaries. The music and rituals contributed positively to this.

Beautiful music!

The experience was a message to let go of the things out of my control and trust the process of life. I walked into the Ceremony looking for a purpose and came back out with one. The music was beautiful and the voices of the shamans singing brought me nothing but peace.

Een van de mooiste ervaringen in mijn leven

The Ayahuasca ceremony was one of the most beautiful experiences I have had in my life so far. Everything was right. The people, the guidance, the energy, the love, the music. It made for a wonderful journey to various places most of which I had never seen or experienced before. It opened my eyes, it changed my consciousness and it healed trauma. I recommend it to everyone and will make it an annual trip myself. AHO

Incredible music & amazing facilitators

I think the plant medicine helped to give me the courage to finally speak my truth, which I had been wrestling with for a while. I feel I’m now at the start of a new path in my life’s journey, which will be full of purpose, love and truth.

The music during the ceremonies was incredible it really helped me to let let go and assisted with the journey. The facilitators were amazing, they were there to offer support when needed and even performed reiki and body work during the sessions which really added another level to the whole experience. After the ceremonies, I found it very difficult to sleep so just rested, whether this was because I had so much on my mind or whether this was just that the medicine was still in my bloodstream, I don’t know, but the passengers and the facilitators were there for me when I really needed them. I hadn’t cried properly for around 8 years but after the final session, I couldn’t stop crying for hours. I was clearly holding a huge amount of emotion in and it felt good to finally release some of it. Whilst I went through this the facilitators were there as well as the amazing people I had taken the journey with.

Throughout the entire weekend I felt no judgement from anyone, it was such a safe place to be open and vulnerable. Everyone there had there own stories and issues to go through and we were all there for one another, I felt nothing but peace, respect, love and truth for the entire weekend. Thank you to all that were involved in the journey and who have helped me move into the person I want to become, full of life, joy, laughter, compassion and love!

Exceptional guidance

What can I say this was my third weekend ayahuasca retreat and sixth ceremony with Ronald and his team of facilitators. My life has totally changed since my first time going in July. Before I found out about ayahuasca/plant medicine I had been suffering with depression and anxiety for more than 10 year’s. After doing 6 ayahuasca ceremonies in 6 months I have been getting my life back to where I feel happy more confident and my depression and anxiety is now at the lowest I have felt in years.

The support from the staff are unbelievable they know exactly how to help you during the ceremonies when it get hard and scary and how to guide you though the ceremony when you’re struggling. My experiences have all been different some have been really difficult and hard at times but it the hardest one that has changed me the most. Everytime has been totally different I have had some really enjoyable experiences after the hard one. The Medicine will show you what it wants to or has to it can also become really confronting but also extremely pleasurable and heart warming just depends on what you want or what the medicine need to give you.

The staff are really loving caring and make you feel relaxed as soon as you arrive at the retreat in the ceremonies they keep you safe at all times when needed and guide you though your journey with exceptional guidance. This was not my first time and it certainly won’t be my last, this place and Ronald and his team have help me to get my life back to we’re if feel alive again

High level retreat & highly recommended!

Life changing and heart opening proces. What an amazing journey, just mind-blowing! I have dived very deep into my unconscious mind and I have seen some relevant knots in my life, which I have resolved with relevant relations after coming home. Also the retreat brought me close to myself and my own truth. Such a heart opening and awakening process. Highly recommended!!!

I have participated in many international quality retreats with great teachers alive these days, and Sattvaya is a high level retreat in their spiritual, psychological and shamanic approach. Sattvaya has taken every effort to create a well thought of, safe and compassionate process, with a high amount of professionality and eye for the subtlest detail for the participant’s care and wellbeing. Genuine and honest, considerate and empathetic process, with a high focus on the participants expansion and support. Even after the retreat there is care and support available. They take so much responsibility for the work they do, and this is one of the most important things in working with people.

Thank you for the life changing experience. Can’t wait to join again soon!

So much love and care

I have done a lot and various forms of work over the year, but this experience brought me closest to the core, to the ultimate ever unfolding truth which is always here and now. Words really fall short to describe, as this comes prior any word. What I can share is that you all did such an amazing job, there was so much Love & Care involved in the proces. The holding and support was felt very strongly throughout the entire process. And when at times it got really challenging, a gentle hand filled with presence was there to give that needed safety and support. The music did the same! For my experience it was really perfect! The twists & turns, the gentle was all at the perfect moment, in perfect coherence with what was happening inside.

I thank you all deeply from the bottom of my heart for this precious work you do and for the care during my stay. I am forever grateful! AHO

Volede me gedragen, hoge kwaliteit en hemelse muziek

My big goal in my life is to develop myself so that I can feel more and more happy. That is why I went on a journey again. For that journey to succeed, it takes a very safe environment. For me, that means a loving, empathetic, patient, honourable, and oh-so-friendly guidance that really has the ability to empathise on all kinds of levels. All these ingredients are present at Sattvaya (and know, I set quite high standards!!).

Ronald is also a Master of music. Truly Heavenly. An indispensably important contribution this gives to the journey. Knowing (=feeling) on the spot what music is needed at what moment. It's not just an hours-long playlist playing off some great songs. By the way, nothing just happens here. Everything is deliberate and done with great care in which I felt carried. All this gave me the opportunity to go inside and surrender to the all-encompassing, but also the pain that presented itself.

Previously, I have felt that it is irresponsible to go on a journey if you are not at the right place. After all, it's not just anything! It is about a medicine you are handed, which has to be handled with great precision with very great respect and full knowledge of the facts.

It is rather scarce, but I have now found an address with High Quality and how happy I am that this exists in the Netherlands!

Loving guidance, I am grateful to you, and of course also to the 'fellow travellers', how glad I was that you were there!

With much love, Karin

Liefdevolle begeleiding, fantastische muziek en fijne verbinding

I really look back on this beautiful weekend with a lot of love and pleasure. The guidance was loving, the accompanying (live) music was fantastic and the connection with the group was very nice. I think this all contributed to me having two beautiful intense journeys. It feels like mental blockades have disappeared, I am less in my head and feel more. The days feel a lot lighter because of this, very nice. Whenever I feel I 'need' to drink ayahuasca again, I will definitely come back here!

The facilitators are amazing, perfectly safe and supportive

I can’t speak highly enough of the ceremony and the facilitators. In the first instance, it gave me huge confidence how seriously and fully a sense of ritual was observed every time. In the second, if the set is the mental state we bring to the experience, the setting that was provided was out of this world. The lights, the colours, the energy, the arrangements, the process was all welcoming and supportive, with a great atmosphere. The energy in the room was intense – some of us were going through difficult things, but there was no fear, only love and support; and some light-hearted moments where everyone came back to the surface and reconnected with love and energy. 

The facilitators were amazing, contributing so much to the ceremony. The music ebbed and flowed, taking us on our respective journeys individually but also together – you could really feel when everyone was going deep and when everyone was coming back to the surface. I never felt any less than perfectly safe and supported at all times. How people knew exactly when to do come and give exactly what was needed at exactly the right time completely blows my mind. Juan, Mariana, Yoka, Ronald all appeared just when I needed them – even when I didn’t know I needed them. Ronald, for example, gave just the right dose on the first drink of the second drink of the second night to shift what was blocked down below … and after that, when I went into some really dark places, Costanza was there. What she pulled out of me was truly horrific, but I never felt scared or lost. I just knew it had to come out, but it didn’t want to … and she ripped it out of me as if it was a living thing – it was utterly amazing. Everyone was.

Lees Meer

And so was the group. I can’t imagine going through this experience with a better group – the energy and synergy was amazing. Everyone was supportive and there for one another, we cried together, we laughed together, we shared together. I hope I see them again. 

Just the best thing I’ve done for myself for a long, long time. I will come again. But I will add a caveat: It took a long time to get to the point where this ceremony made sense for me; but if you have done enough work on yourself previously, whether through counselling, trauma therapy, meditation, self-seeking and the like … then you’ll know when it’s right for you. Even then, you will be nervous as this is a step into the unknown – the unknown being yourself, and the parts of you you’ve carefully hidden, even from yourself. If you come openly and ready, it will be open and ready for you. But if you just rock up expecting miracles without having done the work first, however, you won’t find the answers you’re looking for or get as much from the experience.

Life changing experience!!

Warm setting in a beautiful location, with the warmest, non-judgemental and sweetest people. There was room for all feelings, thoughts and worries. Special how Yoka and Mariana sensed exactly what I needed at that moment, loving arms around me and whispering words that I could handle it, and exactly because of that I could handle it! What beautiful fine insights I received and now, a week later, I am still floating on, it is wonderful. It has done so, so, so much good for me! Because I did not dare to fully open up to the plant medicine at the beginning of the sessions, I feel very strongly that I need to come back. I'm not done yet and I can't wait to return to Ronald and his fine team! In this wonderfully beautiful farmhouse with these fine people, delicious food and wonderfully enchanting music. I play the playlist every day and fall asleep with a smile around my mouth.

Thnx, you guys are the best

Tremendous job

It has been a pretty rough ride this weekend. I've been with Ronald before and his team has done a tremendous job in helping me again. Many talks in between the rituals really helped me give meaning to what I was seeing and feeling. The place in Diemen was beautifull!

The feeling of Safety

I have a lot of good impressions after my Ayahuasca experience with you guys :) Most of alI I appreciate the feeling of safety, which you managed to create and also your loving presence during the ceremonies, group sharing and beyond that. The journey with a Plant Medicine was good, painful, surprising, great, heavy , funny... and I am grateful for all of it. During the ceremonies, whenever I needed something, one of you was there, in such a loving way, that it still touches me deeply when I think about it. Yoka's presence and support, mainly through the touch, were so essential for heeling some of my old and deep issues. Music was super important part of it and I enjoyed it a lot! I loved the way in which we communicated in our group and a support that we genuinely shared. Four weeks after the ceremony it's great to notice that part of the stress, that I was familiar with my whole life, is gone and that I'm more connected with and loving to myself than ever before.

No words can describe this experience!

I had an amazing time during that weekend. It was one of the best weekends for a very long period of time. All the staff was so friendly and welcoming. Also they are professional, dedicated and wise, so participants feel safe and comfortable during the ceremony and after it. All the organizational aspects were well planned and well carried out. The location and accommodation itself were very right for the event. The setting and atmosphere of the ceremony created a right inner state with warm feelings. The guidance of the facilitators during sharing sessions helped me a lot to understand the whole healing process. It’s hard to describe my Ayahuasca journey. It was truly beyond what I expected. The door was opened for a while and I could see a true myself. I saw my behavior and reactions, I asked for forgiveness from many people, I felt love and I was scared from time to time, I saw my childhood and youth. All emotions came out during the ceremony – I cried, I felt happy, lonely, empty, in love, and I experienced a freedom to be myself (I think for the first time in my life). No words can describe this experience and the power of the Medicine.

Lees Meer

It was beautiful music during the ceremonies that helped to get in a flow in my journey. Ronald perfectly read the moment and felt the group atmosphere where the other facilitators had an eye for possibly personal attention to help with whatever was needed in that moment. It was also very nice to meet other lovely participants and spend the whole weekend talking with open-mind and open-heart people. I honestly feel and observe positive changes in different aspects of my life after this experience and now I can say that it was a very right starting point for a life-changing journey. I am very grateful for the chance to participate in the ceremony and I would definitely recommend this retreat.

Healed on a deep level!

They all exceeded my expectation. The rituals were followed, created a space that was pure and safe. All participants were loving and determined. The healers were professional (I can't describe how much they helped me). The space was filled with unconditionally love, which largely helped my heart to open up. The music was beautiful and high quality. It's hard to discribe the role of the music. It is like a narrator of a book, inviting us to walk into an adventure. It also created ups and downs for the plot. Some songs were absolutely beautiful, while some were challenging because I knew they were leading me to some difficult parts.

Professional Healers and Beautiful music

I felt really welcome right from the start. The place is lovely and peaceful, in a beautiful surrounding. Everybody treated each other with love and respect. My journey was difficult at times and I really struggled. However, I felt safe and guided. I learned to let go, feel and accept what is, and surrender. These are lessons that can be really helpful for me during my everyday live. Everybody was really warm and loving, and took very good care of the participants. The sharing sessions gave extra insights and really helped reflecting on everything. It is beautiful to see how a group of people that haven't met before become so close in such a short time. It is with lots of positive feelings and emotions that I look back on this weekend. I can strongly recommend Ronald and his partners, and will definitely be back one day.

Born Again!

The sacred medicine has been calling me for some time, it takes a lot of courage to enter this journey and on my birthday 23/07/22 I decided to give myself this wonderful experience! I had Total support before during and after the whole process which was for me extremely important. Mariana who is also Brazilian like me made me feel at home Sara Ronald and Yoka became my family because the love they had for me and for everyone there was a family love and we had just met for the first time!
In relation to my journey it is difficult to explain with words, because it was very intense and I gave myself almost completely to Sacred Medicine, mother Aya took me to my birth where I had traumas due to a forced cesarean delivery on my mother and all my life I grew up as if you didn’t need anyone closed without asking for help. Sacred medicine showed me that I am not alone that I can ask for help and that I must ask, it showed me love in its most infinite purity, I witnessed the creation of the universe, I can say that I witnessed the Big Bang and when I asked to her who she was, she replied: I AM THE UNIVERSE and this was the most beautiful moment of my journey, a golden light invaded my body and I saw many stars, planets and colors of all kinds! But it also brought me memories of deep traumas in my life about my sexuality, it wasn’t easy, it hurt a lot.

But today, a week later, I feel like a completely different person, that I’m getting to know myself little by little, as if I were a newborn and I have a beautiful life ahead of me. It’s up to me to continue this beautiful journey!

About the most unpleasant effects, I have had nightmares almost every night with my journey, but almost every day I have the full support of everyone from Sattvaya Team, from Yoka my Mother of soul with sweet words of love, from Mariana always willing to listen to me and send me healing meditations and help in my process, from Ronald a wise being who transmits a wonderful peace and trust, in addition to providing songs and mantras during the journey that made all the difference and I will keep them for all my life and Sara always willing to explain the whole process to us. I feel completely loved and supported by them and I really recommend everyone to experience this wonderful journey in life one day!

I was born again! Much gratitude to all of you!

A heart opnening journey

My journey made sense after the second ceremony night as my first and second journey were to be combination of two journeys. I was a bit confused after the first journey but what I learned in the second journey made it all make sense of what I have to do in the future. I had a heart opening journey where I was taken to see my father that died almost 25 years ago. I was given directions to follow the light and he would be waiting for me he was with on my journey and showed me things in my childhood that he regrets not doing certain things it was a journey that has free my father from the spiritual dimension and has freed me from my uncertainty in my world. I finally got to say goodbye and help my father to crossover and finally be at rest.

Perfect setting, highly recommend!

Love the whole experience, the team and their support / openness to each and every one of the group members made it easy to release, also feel the location and facilities/the farmhouse, provided the perfect setting for the ceremony. Moreover the music and its presentation during the ceremony was sufficient for an experience alone, just beautiful. So very glad for having had this experience and feel there is so many elements to it. Highly recommend this retreat for anyone looking for insight / awareness / ability to feel and an authentic experience.

Feeling safe

The facilitators are extremely kind, warm and loving. They make you feel safe and will be right with you if you need them. The sharing circles definitely help with processing your experience. Since the groups are small (7 people during my ceremony), it’s very easy to open up, connect and feel close.

Safe and welcoming setting & amazing music.

I am very grateful for the journeys I was able to take on during the weekend. The setting was so welcoming and it felt so safe I had no problems with getting the full connection with the Plant Medicine. Every little detail was at the right place and moment. The energy of the Team was so good and comfortable and the music was just amazing.

All together it lead me through a beautiful connection with Mother Nature, the energies of myself and the surroundings and enabled me to dive deeper into myself. It was unique experience and I hope many more people will have an opportunity to undertake such a journey with so beautiful people!

Safe and loving setting…a magical experience

I could have never expected a better setting, so safe and loving. Surrendering was possible thanks to all the help that I received which I’m eternally grateful for. The music was magical, the vibe, the singing and dancing, the sharing circles – all had a massive. positive impact on my experience. And I managed to let go, be vulnerable and find joy and peace with this state of being. Magical experience.

sattvaya ayahuasca experience setting

Magnificent Team

I loved that I have found answers to this life, receiving angelic messages of numbers & events, I have traveled to different locations in our spirit with different forms. It was what & who I truly was inside, questioning myself and eventually finding the obvious answers that never made sense in those past moments. I have earned more compassion and gratitude towards the life that I took form now and the people who I came across with. It was so beautiful that no words are easy to describe the physical and mental goodness I have lived in my trip.

The food was so delicious, my taste buds are so improved after this 2 days. Oh the music,,, the musical instruments played, were all elevating, without it, I am not sure how this journey would have been.

The team magnificent, I was in terrifying situations feeling like I’m having near deaths experiences, but all I remember blurring Sara, Mariana & Yoka were there for me, my living angels, were sitting next to me, without any judgments, with Ronald afar guiding them.

Thank you so so so much, it was so magical & I have so much love in me, for life and every thing around the world, no money can gift a soul this perfect life journey. Thank you Pachamama & Sattvaya people for everything, you are forever etched in my soul & cherished for this awesome connection.

Beautiful Experience!

More then anything, it was a very strong feeling of healing during the weekend, although I wasn’t aware that any healing was needed

Deep inspiration, gratitude and love

I have had a great experience at the full moon weekend with deep inner shifts and realisations bringing together all the deep work I’ve been doing in my life these last 2 years all coming to a beautiful closing in my inner journey’s with messages of deep inspiration, gratitude and love. I deeply appreciated the loving care we received from the facilitators of the group and Ronald’s wisdom, skill and reverence for the sacredness of the plant spirits, creating a safe container where magic can happen. The music was also perfect and very inspiring in my inner journey, I will keep it in my heart forever helping me to come back to all these positive uplifting energies I experienced in this weekend :) THank you once again for creating this beautiful ceremony :)

Relaxing & caring support

Everyone was relaxing, open and supportive. I didn’t need to think about others and fully relied on all of your caring support.

Fantastic support & mindblowing music!

It was a very welcoming atmosphere which made it easier for me to surrender myself to what was coming. I enjoyed the fantastic support before, during an after the ceremonies. The played music during the rituals was mindblowing. It helped me reach places so much better. Thank you for everything!


April 2022  ~ Team: Ronald, Yoka, Mariana, Constanza & Howard

Guidance beyond expectations!

Music is a very important part of my life and therefore I was looking for a ceremony with well considered musical guidance. The ceremonial and spiritual guidance and the live music were really out of this world, Ronald is a true artist.

Beforehand I was wondering if a whole weekend wouldn’t be too much, but the opposite appeared to be the case, the duration was perfect! The guidance was well beyond all expectations, I was in need for some extra attention and the whole team was there for me, for that I am very grateful. You will definitely see me back.

Thanks for everything :)

Perfect safe space & kindest persons. Will come back!

No words can describe the experience and the power this plant medicine and no words can describe the perfect setting created by Ronald and his team throughout the entire weekend. I was completely struck by the devotion of the facilitators to create the perfect safe space and elevate the power of the plant medicine to an even higher level. As a true musician Ronald perfectly reads the moment and senses the group atmosphere where the other facilitators have a clear eye for possibly needed personal attention to help with whatever is needed in the moment, even if you don’t know it yourself.

During this weekend I realised the importance of a multiple day retreat, being with a small groups and sharing the experiences in several integration sessions. The guidance of the facilitators during the integration sessions helped me a lot to put some things into the right perspective.

Ronald, Yoka, Sara and Mariana, you are among the kindest I’ve ever met in my 41 years of life. Thanks a lot! I will come back!

Highest grade of professionalism!

Firstly- the organisers really were the key to my personal journey. Secondly the sharing between participants made the journey equal and honest. Finally I loved the fact that next steps or future experiences were left for the participants to think about. The whole experience was done with the highest degree of professionalism and respect for this sacred ritual and I only wish that I could have become more spiritual. I wish I could recommend this retreat to more friends but I am grateful that the there was pre assessment done and post care provided and that meant all participants were given the support and attention needed!

A form of creates love

The guidance was absolutely amazing, I felt so safe,, and the music, waoooo, just perfect, it truly helped me surrender and get in a flow.

About the ayahuasca journey, it is hard to put it into words. It was beyond what I expected. I considered myself always very rational and disconnected from my true emotions. She helped me open the door to my vulnerability. I fell in love recently (I think for the first time in my life) and during the trip, I allowed this true emotion and this pulverized the dam I build around all other feelings I hid when I was a kid. All emotions came out during the ceremony, and I cried, it was raw, primal and it hurt me. But it was so beautiful. And I felt so much love from the other participants and the staff, their love brought me back.

Afterwards, I never felt better. It can only describe it as a form of bliss. Now I understand more who I am. Allowing love helped the plant medicine to find a way to my true being, what is beyond my different facades I constructed to survive, my inner child, that what does not gets older, that what, when I close my eyes is truly nothing, just pure energy. It changed me, empowered me. She learns me to open my eyes and see everything. And yes, that is love. Love creates love. And it is still changing me. She is changing me.

I feel so alive right now, I am not alone but connected. So grateful.

Complete reset of my life

The experience was profound and showed me areas that I need to work on. I feel like it completely reset my life and the way I do things. Things that I couldn’t see, Sacred Plants showed me and it really helped. I felt a lot of resistance in life that the Sacred Plants dissolved. I also felt like the Sacred Plants helped remove a lot of trauma. After the ceremony I had a million things to implement as I felt I could see what my issues were and some of those that I thought were impossible to fix, I felt like it was easy to see a solution.  Now I’m looking forward to starting to implement the changes that I set to implement.

Thank you so much for such a fantastic experience. The settings and the support from the practitioners was incredible. I felt extremely safe and will definitely be back.

I didn’t hug or tell my parents I loved them much before
But now I’m able to hug them both and show them more love.

The best thing thet ever happened to me!

I don’t exaggerate at all when I say that going to this retreat was the best thing that ever happened to me! The music and support from the facilitators was much more than I could have dreamed of and made it relativity easy for me to surrender. I’m trying to think about something negative, but I simply can’t! 10/10.


March 2022 ~ Team: Ronald, Yoka, Mariana & Sara

Safe and comfortable setting, great insights!

Wonderful way to skip your own protection mechanism and cheats and go right to the core of what’s going on, without it being a quick fix. Sacred Plants provides me great insights for complex subjects and Ronald and his team provide a safe and comfortable surrounding for exploration. Will come back
