Allow Thyself

To ‘allow thyself’ is to relax into the bigger part of who you truly are.
Ayahuasca can be an effective tool to open up to that greater reality.

It’s all you, every bit of it YOU!


Ayahuasca is an effective means to nourish our inner light. It strengthens the connection with our inner compass which in turn makes us more effective in reaching our life’s goals.

We are all born with a crystal clear inner compass. This guidance system will lead us to where we are driven by our soul’s mission or life’s experiences. Over the course of the years however many of us, by negative conditioning of upbringing, education and society, will lose connection with this inner light. There are ways to fuel this light so our life will become more fulfilling. Ayahuasca is one of those means.

We can never become completely disconnected from our inner light, higher Self, or however you choose to call it. We will always stay connected to the bigger picture, the ‘all that is’ from which we form a part. Our essence is pure positive energy, which is the true energy to give meaning to our existence. To speak in the words of Abraham Hicks, one of my greatest sources of inspiration: JOY IS THE KEY!

The laws of the Universe are simple, so simple that they are almost incomprehensible to us human beings. After decades of trial and error I have gained a pretty good insight about the force of our inner light. The result is a life in which I am at the steering wheel and give direction to where I choose to go. This makes me an overall happy person, something I wish for everyone.

What is Ayahuasca

Ayahuasca is a gift from the Amazone rain forest. It brings you in contact with your own inner nature so you can truly grow toward the light.

Ayahuasca is an ancient tool that finds its origin with the native Indian tribes of the rain forest. It consists of extracts of two plants that have to be consumed. This will happen twice (or sometimes more) during a so called ‘ceremony’. By consuming Ayahuasca you will go on an inner journey during several hours. You will be comfortably laying down during this transformation to a higher consciousness.

An Ayahuasca journey will always be a personal experience that can unfold differently every time you undertake it. When participating in a group ceremony there will also be a collective transformative energy built up which can be uplifting to all. During the entire process, there will also be guidance and support from me and those assisting me. Sometimes you are facing obstacles that seem to great or steep to cross. In those moments we can offer you a bridge to move on. This method of inner work gives the opportunity to support both from inside out and vice versa in order to get a better grip on your own existence. Everybody needs some extra wind in their sails from time to time.

The 'Inner Journey'

Ayahuasca takes you on a journey to your own inner landscapes. It’s as if you are placed blindfolded on an airport and you have no idea where the flight will take you. Your inner compass however always knows exactly what at that particular time are the most appropriate horizons for you to gain insight in your own thoughts and feelings. Ayahuasca opens the gates, but you yourself will have to walk through them. When you do, you have the opportunity to gain a heightened sense of self-awareness, which will have a lasting effect.

What we experience during an Ayahuasca ceremony is an interpretation of energy, like almost everything in life is. What we see is a translation of light waves, what we hear is a translation of sound waves. What we experience on an inner journey is a translation of waves of consciousness. The better we become at translating, the better we will come to know who or where we are.

Ayahuasca offers the possibility to explore your magical inner wonderland but it is really up to you how to let in the message that comes with it. It’s a personal process, which can prove to be completely different each and every time.

The power of Ayahuasca is that it instigates your inner light so you can shine it out in your everyday life.

-> There is of course much more to be told about Ayahuasca, its background and its active ingredients. If you would like more information, please let me know. I’ll be happy to send it to you.

Be Thyself


The story of Manu. According to the Vedic scriptures there are fourteen Manu’s. We currently live in the aeon of the seventh, Manu Shraddhadeva. The story of this Manu has many resemblances to the story of Noach in the bible.

One day, while Manu was washing his hands, a little fish asked him for protection from predatory fish. Manu brought the fish, named Matsya, to safe waters. When Matsya outgrew the pond, Manu brought him to a lake, then a river and finally the ocean, where Matsya grew out to the size of a whale.
Matsya, who turned out to be an incarnation of Vishnu, then asked Manu to build a boat. When a flood washed over the earth, Manu brought his family in safety along with the seven rishis. Matsya pulled the boat by the horn on his head to the peaks of the Himalayas, the one place above water. From there a new era of human history began.


About me. The most important thing I want you to know is that ‘I create who I am’. What I am is a grounded, passionate and happy man. With this positive energy I create an atmosphere which makes it easy for an Ayahuasca traveller to feel comfortable and secure. Of course I also own the necessary knowledge and experience about which you can read more below, but in my humble opinion a qualified coach first and foremost is one who controls his own life’s experience.

As a child I aspired to become an archeologist when I grew up. Digging up deeply hidden treasures from the ground, bringing to light that which had been hidden for centuries or longer under layers of soil and stones. Now, many years later, in essence I still have that same motivation: shining Light on that which is ‘true’. This has led to a long quest for the nature of ‘truth’ and the laws of the universe which make our light shine.

After my Business and Psychology studies I worked as social worker for some time. Although it taught me a lot, the approach of certain problems within the Dutch counseling profession did not match with my personal thoughts and beliefs. I then made the transition to the theatre world especially those projects that formed a bridge to culture and social equanimity. It was also in this period that I began to study a diversity of ‘alternative’ sciences, from astrology to Reiki, from chakra psychology to all kinds of yoga and meditation. Also, I gained much experience in the transformative power of entheogens (consciousness expanding substances) like Ayahuasca.

After I became critically ill a few years ago, followed by a successful kidney transplant, I decided it was high time to truly follow my own bliss. Through Ayahuasca experiences (amongst others) I gained a clear insight in my own unique strength and quality.* By staying tuned to my inner compass on every level of my life things unfold naturally. Through this understanding a seemingly dramatical phase of my life turned into one of great value and importance.

* People with health issues are also invited to sign up for an Ayahuasca experience. Your situation (especially medication) will be evaluated by a classically trained doctor. His advice is binding! In my case my personal situation was also first screened by the same doctor I now work with.

When and Where

There are a number of ways in which you can participate in an Ayahuasca ceremony. Here you can read more about possibilities, prices and location. 


PRIVATE CEREMONY, alone or with 2/3 friends or family members:
• Private ceremonies usually take place during daytime in my apartment on one of the canals in the center of Amsterdam. Incidentally it is also possible for me to travel to your home.
Costs private ceremony:
1 person: € 270
2 persons: € 180 per person
3/4 persons: € 160 per person
• The house on De Hoorneboeg estate in Hilversum can also be rented as a location for private groups.


As many people find an inner journey by drinking Ayahuasca too big a jump to take or because they prefer a more subtle input of this beautiful energy I also provide microdosing drops of Ayahuasca. The concept is similar to the more known drops of CBD oil or homeopathy where you daily take a few drops under the tongue. 

This will give a subtle influx, which, in time, can result in a shift of energy and therewith in behavioral patterns and general wellbeing. It's important though to 'support' the energy with certain techniques like meditation, yoga or breathing exercises in order to enhance the likelihood that the seeds will root and your third eye will be activated. 
For those who have no or little experience with these techniques I offer a 7 week course in which I explain more about the work and teach you a variety of methods to nourish this energy. At the start I will provide you with the drops and we'll experiment weekly with the techniques in order to find out what works best for you. 

If you already have experience with Ayahuasca and/or with the methods as described above you could work with it independently. In that case I will give you an introduction to the principles through the phone or at my home in Amsterdam.

• Daytime: these take place a few times a year in an idyllic spot on estate De Hoorneboeg in Hilversum. The house is peacefully situated in the woods and borders on fields of heather. It is part of a beautiful estate and was used before as a library and chapel. It comes with a private front and backyard so you can go outside during your inner journey if you feel so inclined. The house is situated at the foot of a small hill, which was formed during the second last ice age.

Costs per person: € 144


What makes my ceremonies different from others:

• I use only the best ingredients for creating the Ayahuasca tea. These consist of the highest percentage of DMT, the active substance that will open the door to your inner journey. There are many different combinations of plants that can be used. I use the combination Peganum Harmala (Syrian Rue) and Mimosa Hostilis (Jurema). Technically this is called Anahuasca. It is known as the most potent combination for the so called ‘inner work’;

• I offer professional guidance and support during the ceremony and, if needed, afterwards;

• I offer the opportunity to work on certain themes, both in private settings as well as in certain group sessions. I am open to suggestions and personal wishes in this.

⇒ Ayahuasca is NO QUICK FIX. Insights and solutions often come in the days or weeks after. This is why I offer aftercare so you can continue to work on your process after the 'inner journey'.

⇒ When you take any kind of medication I will need to be informed of this well in advance of the ceremony. Not all medication goes together well with Ayahuasca (like antidepressants or antibiotics). I will consult a Western physician about your specific case. His advise will be binding!

De Hoorneboeg, Hilversum
