NEW LOCATION! This ceremony will be held at a very new location for us with perfect acoustics. We will continue our work in a church ; t ‘Witte Kerkje in Baarn, the Netherlands
*** Because Yama is travelling in Mexico during this winter, I will continue the work what we usually do together. Notice that she will physically not be in this ceremony but in Spirit she will be with us for sure.***
Sacred Plant Medicine Ceremony with Medicinal Cacao, Blue Lotus, Rapé, Tobacco Juice, live sound healing and medicine music, to connect you with higher states of consciousness.
After drinking the ‘ceremonial grade’ cacao* mixed in a special tea, Zelday and Yama will create a Sacred Space with sounds, vibrations, voice and icaros (plant medicine music) and meditations. This Sacred Space is an invitation for you to open your fullest potential. Yama and Zelday might support the individual processes with other plant medicines and limpia’s (shamanic healing). Towards the end there will be singing with guitar and the opportunity for participants to join in the music. We will end the gathering by sharing a healthy and nourishing meal.
“While the Sacred Medicines are entering your body, you hear soft breathing sounds, humming, whistling… enchanting rhythms… rustling leaves … subtle sparkling tingling seeds… icaros calling upon the maestros and spirits… heart-opening voices… the chacapa… the sun gong… wind chimes…. singing bowls and bells… the magic multi-layered voices of the deep didgeridoo… Yama and Zelday bring the sounds and vibration of the jungle with its many helpers and in every cell in you the Universe starts opening up, showing you what you need to see…”
*) MEDICINAL CACAO
The sacred medicine of Cacao alters the neurochemicals in the brain, produces a feeling of well-being and heart-opening, helps us elevate our state of consciousness, brings our polarities into balance and reconnects us in an infinite state of Oneness.
The highly potent ‘ceremonial grade’ cacao that we use for our ceremonies has a natural strong dose of these substances, since it is not being modified for consumption. Most cacao is produced as cheap as possible, for consumption. There is also beautiful raw cacao for healthy food and as an energy supplement. And then… there is wild and medicinal cacao! We only use the purest and most potent healing cacao we know, an ancient and rare Guatemalan variety that is being selected for it’s very strong vibration, which doesn’t come from cacao plantations but grows either wild in the jungle or together with other plants in a balanced permaculture, to reach the optimum natural conditions for both of them. It is carefully selected and difficult to get.

ABOUT YAMA & ZELDAY
In the Peruvian Amazon, Yama and Zelday received deep insights into the ancient power and knowledge of the plants and animals and other beautiful beings that came along on their colourful journeys. While working with the sacred plant medicines, connecting deeply with the plant spirits in this realm of high consciousness and full potential, they were initiated as a gifted Medicine Couple. They got the profound task to translate this priceless knowledge into sounds and touch in their work at home. It is from this highly Sacred Space that they bring their Shamanic Sound & Plant Medicine Ceremonies and private Tantra/Sound Healing Sessions.
DEVA YAMA VOORHORST
Yama’s teachings and transmissions are based on her fully embodied experience in healing herself in different sacred traditions, lineage teachings and initiations, the most profound ones being the Kaula Heart of All, her Tantric Family, the Plant Masters in the Amazonian jungle and the ancient healing ways of the indigenous Paqo’s in the Andean mountains.
By overcoming several ‘incurable’ diseases, she deeply connected with nature and all of creation, finding herself on an ancient shamanic path, having access to universal spiritual wisdom and being able to transmit these transcendental energies into this world. Yama brings hidden (but not secret) ancient healing tools that (re)activate the deep yet often forgotten power within you. Tools to clear the past, release toxic emotions, open your energetic pathways, activate your sacred sensual self, bring balance into your relationships and harness your creative potential.
Yama has the gift to reawaken and empower you to become aware of your intuitive voice, free your energies by connecting with the unique pure you and unlock your potent inner source for creativity, spiritual growth and transformation.
In the Netherlands born Zelday Karssen is a Didgeridoo player, musician, crafter, teacher, sound healer and spiritual awakening guidance. He studied and lives the path of Didgeridoo and sound healing ever since 2001 and deeply devoted his life towards this ancient instrument and healing practise, which became his full profession in 2009. Throughout time he studied from traditional to modern styles and is a known teacher when it comes to consciousness about body, sound and spirit. During the last decade he taught and played throughout a wide variation of festivals, concerts, ceremonies and retreats around the Netherlands and Europe. Zelday inspired literally thousands of people with his spiritual devotion for his music, instruments and life itself. Zelday lived throughout his life many dimensions of existence. He travelled around the planet to synchronize with her divine natural beauty and came in contact with various cultures and tribes in Europe, Asia, Australia and South-America. His unavoidable and pure kind of awareness about our cosmological journey on this planet makes him a very sensitive and earthly person. Life experiencing from the heart, also came from a tremendous polar side effect as he struggled existence with long term depressions, confusion and substance addictions in very early stages of his life. These mainly caused by the struggle and inner incapability living in the modern western society. Zelday deeply transformed his waking soul into existence, to reconnect with his heart and life, to reconnect with his ancient knowledge. This path and practise into self-realisation became, besides a variation of instruments, one of his most important tools to work with nowadays.
His refined and organic sense of sound let him grew towards a developed sound healer and through the years he studied entheogenic plant medicines. Due winter times he travels to the Amazonian rainforest to deepen his awakening in the shamanic field of the plants. Working as a musician, sound healer and his committed devotion to these specific plants, allows him to combine these gifts into his work. This healing work is about a deep remembrance of our actual human existence, a universal consciousness, our collective and individual inspiration from which everyone and everything is built. With sound as his tool, he is able to share from this space of awareness, translating the high states of pure consciousness that he finds there into vibrations.
Zelday and his partner Yama Voorhorst became initiated as a Medicine Couple due the so called dietas in the Peruvian Amazon and they both live and work in the field of spiritual awakening and transformation.
We welcome you from a deep space of Consciousness and Love,
Yama & Zelday ♡
