Why a Shaman? How does a Shamanic Ceremony go?

Testimonials

Coming from someone who has meddled with a few drugs. Ayahuasca has proven to be by far the most powerful. I didn’t take part in a three day ceremony to “get high” as I am not a junkie of any sort. This was an important healing phenomena that I knew I had to be a part of. Some people describe it as a calling. I was taken back to my childhood where things started to go wrong in my life. I learnt how to truly forgive myself, love myself and open my heart entirely to others. There’s a lot of baggage that we carry around in our lives. This really gives you the kick to free yourself from yourself.

Danny Hill

I just feel really happy and blessed! This was an amazing experience. The third ceremony made all the difference. It took me some time to connect with mother Ayahuasca. So I will really recommend a three day ceremony.

Martin

Before coming to my second Ayahuasca Retreat I didn’t know what I was really looking for. After the experience with Maria Johanna and her team I found love again and it was an important reminder of what life is.

Would you like to join our Ayahuasca Retreat?

Ayahuasca is an ancient medicine for the soul. An ayahuasca ceremony allows you to make a deep inner journey that can greatly support you in your life. It helps you with insights, awakening, healing of the past or pain in the present and to develop more self-esteem. On this page you will find information about the Ayahuasca, our ceremonies, the location, the daily format and the prices. You will also get an impression of what you can expect and you also read experiences from previous participants. In addition, there are some videos including experiences, our previous Ayahuasca ceremonies and my personal videos, in which I share my experiences.

What to Expect?

Participating in an Ayahuasca ceremony is always exciting. You never know what to expect, because you are trying to heal something in your subconsciousness. We as guides try our best to make you feel safe and to help you prepare. We introduce you in the ceremonial room, so you feel safe in the group. You may share, but you don’t have to. After that, we offer Ayahuasca tea, in several rounds. You decide, in the moment, how many rounds are suitable for you

Why guidance of a Shaman?

A Shaman is a spiritual guide and healer who is guiding our Ayahuasca Ceremonies. After traveling in Peru and Ibiza under the guidance of Shamans, I strongly support traveling under the guidance of a Shaman.  A shaman provides a safe space so the right healing can take place. Shamans use healing songs called Icaros. These songs connect with the spirit of the plant which causes healing. So, shamans do healing for the participants. They are a channel through which the plant works.

The effect of a 3-Day Ceremony

Linas, the shaman that we work with always works with 3 ceremonies in a row. He makes sure there is a build-up in the ceremonies. The first day is especially clean. The second day you can come deeper and more to the essence of your trip. And the third day should be the completion of your journey. Sometimes certain channels are very hidden and do not have a decisive experience in your first ceremony. It’s a pity to go home with such an experience. We see that it’s way more powerful to do more ceremonies in a raw than just 1 separate journey. That’s why we can highly recommend to do this 3 day Ayahuasca Retreat with the guidance of Gino.

The Biggest Break-Throughs are at Day 3 in Most Cases

The biggest breakthroughs usually take place on day 3. There is not only a sequence of building up in the ceremony itself, also in the 3-day period there is a sequence of build-up the process. This is I below:

Day 1: Cleansing
Day 1 is often about cleansing. Cleansing your body, cleaning your mind and different levels. Clearing things that no longer serve you. This can be quite a relief and you will benefit from this healing. However, this is not always the case. As described earlier in this article, some people struggle to enter their inner journey on Day 1.

Day 2: Go deeper

On Day 2 you can go deeper. The medicine is already in your system. You have had a physical cleanup, your portals are more open and so you can go deeper inside on your 2nd ceremony day. Sometimes people feel that they can already go home after day 2 since so much healing has already taken place.

Day 3: Essence of your healing

‘There is something magical about the number 3.’ Think about the triangle, father/mother/child or past/present/future. They say ‘Everything comes in 3’. The same for a 3-day Ayahuasca Ceremony.

There is something special about attending a 3-day Ayahuasca Ceremony. After the 2 previous days you are more open to Mother Ayahuasca and. Ofter times the biggest breakthroughs take place on the 3rd day. On the third day you have less expectation or intentions that you want to work on. Therefore you are more open for what Mother Ayahuasca wants to show you. There is less anxiety or tension so you are more receptive. That is where you want to be. Ayahuasca can give you the greatest treasures if you are able to surrender.  You can get deeper into the essence of your healing.

Benefits of a 3-Day Ayahuasca Retreat

A 3 day Ayahuasca Retreat does not only has added value regarding your personal healing. The group process is also more beautiful since you make a deeper connection with each other. Below are some benefits of a 3 day Ayahuasca Retreat:

Ayahuasca Experiences

It’s hard to describe an Ayahuasca Experience in words. But let’s give it a try. Ayahuasca is a very personal experience and different for everyone. You get what you need in the moment. Down below you can read some Ayahuasca experiences.

One of the most enriching experiences ever! Difficult to describe in language but three words are in close proximity: profound, magical, and enlightening. Not only the personal ‘inner-journey’ but also the entire setting of the ceremony (together with wonderful people and deeply caring guides) was a unique experience on its own. Ayahuasca gave me great courage to accept & follow my heart’s life mission and taught me to acknowledge & let go of repressed emotions from my childhood. Moreover, it helped me to be more kind to myself and appreciate the ‘felt presence of immediate experience’ (or ‘present moment’ how others refer to). I highly recommend everyone who feels Ayahuasca’s calling to join Maria Johanna’s sessions – she and her team are amazing!

René

I am still enjoying the experience days after. I can still feel it in my body everywhere. This morning I woke up early and meditated automatically, in which I experienced a third ceremony (I did 2), as it were, and crawled into different animals. Always a different animal that came to me as a picture, and then I became all the them, one by one; Panther, monkey, spider, snake. They gave me theirs powers to embody these powers. The Ayahuasca reminded me that my entrance is mainly kinesthetic. Body, feel, cuddle, emotions. Visually I also see things, but no strong hallucinations (so far), more images that foster or support my feeling.

Maria and the team provided safety and fun. And Wow what can Maria sing beautifully! I wanted it to continue for days, but everything comes to an end. It is also valuable how Maria helps how to implement Ayahuasca’s lessons into actions in our lives and to continue the process. Thank you!

Martijn

Joy, clarity, safety, comfort, love, it is beyond words.

Claire

Overwhelming, the connection and intention of everybody, I can’t find the words for it.

Anonymous

A beautiful experience and an exercise in patience. Warm and open people made it even more special. I felt very supported and informed before, during and after the ceremony. I came seeking a shift in my body. I felt a block in my emotion that needed to released. Whilst I had expectations of how that might manifest, I could not have imagined the journey or the bliss of feeling freed. It was the most important experience of my life so far and I am forever grateful!

Valerie

It was a wonderful and life-changing experience. I really loved the singing and blessing/cleansing of the water. I am so glade I chose to have my First Ayahuasca ceremony with Maria Johanna. The experience was beautiful beyond words. The team was great and very attentive to everyone’s needs. I am looking forward to my next ceremony with Maria Johanna. Big Thank you to Maria and her team!

Trace Kirk

Great way to change body and soul and can be used as a kickstart for a new life.

Maurice

If you want to sort yourself out and you are brave enough you should give it a try. So much positive energy.

Shan

Wow, amazing, hard to put it all in to words, life changing. I loved my experience of Ayahuasca with Maria Johanna and her team in a clean safe caring home environment. Words can’t describe the experience, but amazing and life changing enhancing go some way to describing it. Thanks!

Ruth

Wow, amazing, indescribable! If you are stuck in any way, and you’re not afraid of your inner truth: GO FOR IT! This was an amazing experience. Words can hardly describe how I feel. I’ve had the chance to work on many themes I was struggling with. The progression made in one weekend feels like years of therapy. It is overwhelming in a good way!

Ebony

It was a beautiful, deep and life-changing event. For my Ayahuasca is the greatest gift I have given to myself. And that I wish her for everybody.

Vanessa

Wonderful, excellent catering and very nice to share our experiences with each other. Ayahuasca opened a new gate in my life.

Mohammed

Ayahuasca is a journey for personal growth providing insight into what your mission or purpose may be. It teaches you how to be the best version of yourself. Healing, inner calm and a way to build up your confidence. Maria Johanna and her team are incredible in their guidance and support.

Trevor

It was not what I expected, but it was probably what I needed! I really loved the safe enviroment that was created and the love and care provided by the team. I had a very difficult journey but I felt supported throughout. I witnessed a lot of people having great healing from their experiences, and I strongly believe in the healing powers of this medicine.

Anonymous

I came to this retreat feeling like an empty vessel with no direction and joy and within moments of entering the house to feel a warm love take over. I felt like I was home and safe, which I hadn’t felt in a long time. When I received the medicine and went on my journey I could feel my soul filling with love and positivity, it was beyond words. An absolutely magical experience. I hope to return again and go on another journey in the future. I’ve learned so much this weekend and plan to use the tools and thoughts to further understanding and better myself. I can’t thank Maria and her team enough for all they have done, they are angels on earth. Thank you so much!

Claire

It was an amazing spiritual experience and I gave and received as much as medicine allowed me to. Amazing experience, great hosts, felt very safe in the environment.

I dealt with a lot of personal issues, faced my demons. I felt so much love for my family and friends and all the other Group members. Wonderful experience for any own with emotional issues of if you struggle with your thoughts or mind. So glad I made the decision to join on the Easter weekend and full blue moon.

Very powerful. Much love to your all.

Gerry

What a great way to clean your body, mind and soul in such a short time. As a personal trainer/coach I am all about optimizing my life to the fullest in all aspects and this tool should be used by everyone who wants to transform their life. I definitely recommend Maria Johanna and her team for giving a unique and professional experience. As with all great and powerful tools you can be sure the ayahuasca experience with Maria Johanna is safe and is used to its full potential.

Maurice

I could feel the energy and the love involved. All the atmosphere was amazing, the set was perfect. In my opinion Ayahuasca can open a new reality a new way of thinking. It can heal your inside, phallically, emotionally and spirituality. It can make you develop inner peace, love for yourself and for the humanity in a very beautiful way. You can feel a very good feeling of love and the way in such a wonderful magical way.

Pedro

Great journey of introspection. Go for it with no expectations but with intensions. My journey was different from what I expected from it. I had more of journey of introspection with aspect myself that I needed to look at. Peace and patience are the 2 lessons I am leaving this place with.

Mourad

A game changer event in my life! The ceremony with Maria Johanna and her team are comfortable and safe, you are great coaches and support. It opened endless possibilities on how to be a better person.

Anonymous

I had such a beautiful experience, the medicine an offer gave me so much. I understood my purpose how I can help others, and what I need to do next. A huge take away was I also faced me demons and realised what I have to change in my life and the habits and relationships that no longer serve me that are holding me back. I am excited about the change and the difference I can make to make this World a better place.

Indy

Maria Johanna and her team provide the ingredients for an instructive inner journey what it is, is different for everyone. But if you are open to it, I can definitely recommend it here. They create a nice and pleasant atmosphere where I have been able to learn important lessons that I can implement. Ayahuasca gave me a new vision and learned me what is really important for my.

Annemarieke

Dearest Maria Johanna,

I want to thank you from the depth of my heart for being such an enchanting beautiful and gentle Shaman. Thank you for the way you dance and sing and catch my eye. Thank you Brian and the other good people in your crew. I hope to draw energy and inspiration from the wonderful ceremonies in the years and decades to come.

Love, Peter (Sweden)

Peter

Dear Maria, Thank you for a very good experience. I highly recommend an Ayahuasca experience with Maria Johanna. Maria and her team are friendly and supportive and look after you throughout. The ceremony weekend helped me overcome some mild anxiety and put me on the right path on how to tackle this. Ayahuasca is a medicine and should be taken in a supportive and caring environment. With Maria and her team I can guarantee you are in that safe environment where they are available to help. This weekend has been a therapeutic detox for sure. K.P. (UK)
