In our centre, we successfully work with the brew Ayahuasca, imported from the Amazon.

Ayahuasca is one of the oldest known healing methods. Sources already speak of the use of this transforming brew, 5000 years back in time. The effects of Ayahuasca can be very intense and profound; a deep energetic cleansing will take place as well as the processing and resolving of traumatic experiences.

Under the right circumstances, such as in our setting, working with ayahuasca is very safe. (You can read more about this in the research rapport Sacred Voyage on this page).

The Ayahuasca ceremony is a shamanistic initiation in which you can experience altered states of consciousness.  The emphasis is on exploring your own potential in a safe way, as well as healing trauma and recovering your true essence. With the Sacred Voyage method you learn to do deep healing work inside your body on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual layers. (It is not about tripping outside of your body.)

Ayahuasca gives insight, helps you retrieve and heal lost parts of your soul, and helps your Inner Child come alive. It is a deeply transforming process for both your body and your mind.

We have guided thousands of people in the past years during their special quest. According to many, the healing power of ayahuasca reaches far beyond the effects of any known western therapies.

Healing weekends with ayahuasca

For dates check our Calendar

We regularly organize 2-day healing weekends (in English) and 3 day retreats with Ayahuasca. People from all over Europe and the world have visited these ceremonies in the past. Healing weekends or retreats are led by Géke Dijkstra, Stephen Monné, Joannie van Rijswijk or Miriam Klein. We work with a team of experienced and committed guides, who provide safety and loving support. Our groups consist of a maximum of 35 participants and a team of 5-10 guides.

The first day of the weekend is a preparation for the ceremony which takes place on the second day. We prepare ourselves as a group by sharing our intentions, by heart-dancing or voice expression, and by holotropic breath work. On the second day you will drink the Ayahuasca. In the 3 day retreats, the second and the third day have Ayahuasca ceremonies.

Costs for the healing weekends are 265 Euros including light meals. Costs for the 3 day retreats are 375 Euros including light meals.

Accommodation costs are paid separately and vary per location. For information on prices send us an e-mail.

We also organize healing weekends (in English) with a sweat lodge as preparation on the first day and the Ayahuasca ceremony on the second day. A sweat lodge is an ancient Native American ritual in which you are deeply cleansed and reconnected with Mother Earth.

Costs for these weekends are 245 Euros including light meals.

Lars Faber developed a program which can open the eight keys, the eight gateways to total freedom:

  • The gate leading to the freedom to live your life to the fullest.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to create and protect.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to want and to act.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to feel and express yourself.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to relate, connect and communicate.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to discover your own truth and act upon it.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to self-observation.
  • The gate leading to the freedom to surrender.

Some of these gates you may already have passed, others are still locked or may be unknown to you. By using and working with different profound methods an exercises in awareness, we will show you the way to these gateways so you will have the opportunity to open and pass them.

Guided by experienced trainers and led by Lars Faber.

Facilitated at a venue next to the woods and the IJsselmeer (big lake) one hour above Amsterdam. Staying overnight is simple inside (dormitory) or in your own tent outside.  We organize this retreat once a year.

For a long time, the Holy Grail was believed to be something outside of ourselves. It was thought to be a Chalice, in which the Light would appear that would return the country to health. King Arthur sent his best and purest Knights out into the land to find the chalice. This beautiful legend is a metaphor for the finding of our Inner Light, without which our body (the land) falls into decay. Using our purest intention, like an alchemical process, it is our task to rediscover our lost Inner Light.

By adhering to a modified diet for several weeks, we initiate the purification process of the pineal gland (Third Eye). With body and breathing work, as well as Yoga, we open the channels that are necessary to allow the Kundalini to flow. The heart is cleared of old pains, so that it may function again as the bearer of the Light, which never left, but simply went into hiding. Once the pelvis, the heart and the Third Eye have all been opened and are resonating in synchronicity, we are set to discover the Holy Grail in ourselves. After we have purified and opened ourselves sufficiently, Mother Ayahuasca will show us the way.

This 5-day retreat demands complete dedication to the process and an investment of € 695 (this includes food and overnight stays). You will be staying in a beautiful castle farm in Limburg. For more information or to reserve go to  info@thesacredvoyage.com
