About Ayakasha & our team
Sacred & holy plants and process therapy
Ronald and Mandy are both certified Process Therapists, specialized as Sacred Plants Facilitators from the Penva Academy. They have established Ayakasha with the aim to give humanity a push in the right direction to be able to go a lighter way through life. Through Ayakasha people can rediscover and develop themselves, break through negative patterns, traumas and other physical and mental difficulties that stand in the way of happiness. Ayakasha offers therapeutic 1 on 1 sessions and ceremonies with Sacred Plants in groups or privately. This can initiate the beginning or expansion of your personal growth to discover who you really are and what your (inner) abilities are. Happy people who are more in harmony with themselves and the environment, thereby contributing to a better happier world. So you'll let Love Rule!
When Mandy worked for the first time with the Holy Teacher Plants for the first time, there was immediately the spark: “This is it! Here lies the beginning where other forms of therapy stop.”
After years of self-study, accompanied by yoga and meditation, she specialized in Focusing. After which more studies followed; all aimed at people to get to know themselves and above all to be their own best friend. Bringing people to their own inner home from where you learn to live from an authentic zest for life, wisdom, creativity and, above all, love and compassion. She did work for mental health care and taught at higher schools. She did a lot of group and individual therapy work, also with people who have been mentally ill for a long time to help them recover. Again and again she found out that people really flourish when they truly get to know themselves and discover their own qualities. But the way to get there can be long and not everything is solved with modern methods.
After the first time working with the Holy Teacher Plants, they showed her that you can feel even deeper and can look even further - find complete healing and transformation, and get to know your Higher Self - she wanted to work with it! Together with Ronald, she now combines the wisdom of this sacred shamanic teacher plants with the knowledge of therapy from both the Eastern and Western worlds.

Ronald has already surprised himself from a young age about the deeper life issues. In the nineties he came into contact with various entheogens including the Holy & Spiritual Plants. These resources brought him new wisdom, knowledge, insights and inspiration. After several experiences with entheogens, a number of intense life processes and the application of self-help methods and therapies (including raja yoga, meditation, mindfulness, Jungian therapy), he underwent a number of transformations in consciousness. From that moment on, he felt more and more the calling to further develop his own and the human consciousness to take it to a higher level in order to contribute to the development of a world in which man will live more in harmony with himself, his fellow man, and nature.
After a number of profound healing and transforming Sacred Plant experiences in the period of 2010-2015, the training for Process Therapist and Plant Medicine Facilitator came on his path, the pieces fell into place and this goal became more clear. Ultimately, together with Mandy, he founded the Ayakasha Project in 2016 for organizing and supervising Sacred & Spiritual workshops. His background and decades of experience as a professional DJ (1990-present) add an extra dimension to the rituals. Music, according to many studies, has a therapeutic and healing effect. During the rituals he is inspired by the Spirits of the plants and agrees with the music choice on the participants and their inner journeys. Because of this he knows how to surprise himself and the participants again and again during the ritual.

Before Harry came into contact with Sacred Plants, there was almost nothing for him other than commercial 'success'. That was the motivation for him in life. He could have never foreseen that it would all change after working with the Carred & Holy Plants. In addition to being given 'insight' to being 'blessed', 'control' and 'acceptance' also came later.
All this gave him the motivation to work with Mandy & Ronald, who always provide a loving and safe environment, to guide participants in their journey.
In 2006 I made contact with mother Ayahuasca for the first time. It was during a Santo Daime ceremony in Brazilië the country where I was born, and grew up until I was 12 years old.
After my acquaintance, with all the insights I received then, I knew that Ayahuasca, is a powerful teacher, a 'mother spirit' that brings us to the core, helps us to make contact with our soul, our essence.
When I fell into depression in 2015, I knew that mother Aya would be able to help me understand my situation. Mother Aya has helped me tremendously by giving me extraordinary insights again, and has taken me on an intense journey of self-love, self-acceptance, and compassion.
My respect, and gratitude to mother Ayahuasca is indescribable, it is an honor for me to assist Mandy and Ronald with their wonderful mission.

Since he was a kid, Petr had a feeling of missing connection with something eternal and deep inside him. He was hoping to find the answers in science, in religions, in career success but it didn't help . His long journey brought him in contact with sacred Plants in 2018. Thanks to Mandy and Ronald, their support and guidance on his path, Petr has got incredible help from mother Ayahuasca, which made him complete and connected to his soul. The healing and insights he's getting from Aya give him compassion, power, and motivation to assist other people on their path.

I discovered the healing effects of Ayahuasca at Ayakasha where I took my first steps towards curing PTSD and depression in 2017. After two years of intense and loving treatments of Mandy and Ronald I have come to beautiful and profound insights about both myself and my contribution to the world around me. The insight that unconditional love is the driving force in me and in all of us is the most beautiful thing Ayahuasca has given me.
These insights have made me positive again in life and also help me to support the Ayahuasca ceremonies with a lot of love.
