De zweethutceremonie is een oeroud reinigingsritueel dat bij veel verschillende oorspronkelijke culturen voorkwam; waarvan de meest bekende die van de Noord-Amerikaanse Indianen is.
Een zweethut zoals die wordt gegeven door Michaela is gebaseerd op de traditie van de Chippewa Cree en wordt ervaren als een warme deken.
Feel embraced by the sweatlodge
Time for healing, prayer, singing, give thanks
Where the stones are our Grandpa and the water is our Grandma
From their sacred love making the steam will rise in orde to heal us
The smell of the “for ever green”

the Medicine of Sound
por Orna Ralston
Sleeps a song in things abounding
that keep dreaming to be heard:
Earth’es tunes will start resounding
if you find the magic word.
This kind of work with sound is based on ancient knowledge about harmony and vibration. The shamans of older times already knew that sound has the power to dissolve blockades, deep seated emotions and pain. Here it is not about learning a technique. Here we work intuitive with voice. Where is your body, soul or emotion blocked? What does the soul need to come into a flow again? Here it is not about singing beautifully but about sounding and the impact of sound. a intense insight into a very special way of working with voice and spirit.
Therefore you don‘t need to have a talent to sing but just the openness for the shamanic way of working.
Orna Ralston is a professional musician who has come to her shamanic roots through her love of sound and her work with it. She is an intuitive, who is gifted with clear-audience and clear-sensing. Through her work she has unveiled a very special form of sounding which has a high potential to change energies, and in turn, lightens up inner and outer spaces. Orna’s way of teaching is characterized by humor, intensity and her rich experience as sound woman
Before and after the workshop it is possible – also for those who do not participate in the workshop – to book personal readings with Orna. In a reading Orna relates to the actual questions in life and to the inner circumstances. A reading gives the opportunity to look closely at your stream of life and helping it to flow better – or come again into a flow. To get there Orna is using a shamanistic form of sounding and voicing.
The workshop starts saturday 22th at 17.00 o´clock and ends officially 27th July at about 20:00 in the evening. But we´ll have dinner together after 20:00 and everyone normally stays the night over. The night of the 27th is included in the price as well as breakfast the 28th.

Shamanic retreat: Aztec healing
conducted by Jorge Nopaltzin
26 th of October – 2th of November 2017
with Michaela van der Meer
When your Soul needs the freedom of nature
We organize our Vision Quests within a seven day program.
You are prepared on all levels before your time alone in nature. As you return we offer a debriefing to help you carry home all of your experience. The time alone in nature starts and ends with a Sweat lodge ceremony as a gateway to the other reality. It is a time of fasting, you only drink water.
The Vision Quest is part of our every day life and a powerful and sacred time.
We guide you in a professional way without interfering in your contact with nature and the spiritual world. We support you to carry home your experience and vision to unfold in your future.
