About the event
A one day medicine journey.
We take you on a journey to create balance and connect deeper with different aspects of yourself, such as the physical, emotional & mental body.
Connect with the spirits of the chackra's & the Four Elements, grief and all the other emotions alive in you and express through dance!
The day consists of sacred Cacao, Rapé and Sauna ceremonies. Guided by different meditations, beautiful live music, and a team of space holders to make you feel held, safe, and warm.
This event is a pilot!
The event is hosted at a beautiful farm next to the "Noordlaarderbos" (woods). You are surrounded by pets, animals on the property, wild birds and pure nature.
Due to this unique location, it is much easier to connect with Mother Nature and your vulnerable heart.
The collective goal of Unity Medicine, Nature Nurture by Bodil Aina and all other facilitators involved is to create a safe and loving space where you can let go of aspects that are not serving any longer and connect to deeper parts of yourself. This will be done in a group of beautiful like-minded people to remind you that you're not alone in this.
At the end of the day we hope you feel more empowered, grounded, connected to your body and loving towards yourself and the rest of the world 💚
About the ceremonies:
Rapé, administered by Jeroen Eefting, is known as a healing substance for thousands of years by the old native tribes from the Amazon rainforest.
Rapé is the ash of the tobacco plant; Nicotiana Rustica. This plant is seen as holy by the Shaman. First the plant got cut in little pieces, dried during a holy ritual above the fire and when dry, grinded.
Rapé is meant to cleanse your physical, emotional and mental bodies. It gives you the opportunity to alter your state of conciousness. Rapé is not a hallucinogen, so it won’t show you things that are not there but you will feel more connected with your innerworld and the world around you.
After the ceremonie you might experience clearity in your thinking/thoughts, your emotional state might shift and you might be in closer connection with your breathing.
During the ceremony physical and emotional sensations might come up as; shaking, crying, vomiting or the need to shout. Remember, this is all part of the proces.
Also Sacred Cacao, given by Elina Bakker, is seen as a plant medicine with healing capacities for thousands of years by the old tribes from the Amazon.
The Sacred Cacao helps you to connect with your physical body as with your heart. Just as Rapé the Sacred Cacao will help you to brighten your awereness and tap into a alterned state of conciousness without hallucinations. Together with the meditations, Sacred Cacao will help you show you your patterns, cultivate more self-love and more acceptance to the things around you.
Keep your aura and mind open, listen well and don’t rush to solutions and conclusions. This way the Sacred Cacao might help you on your path to personal growth
With the help of the shamanic drums and angel like vocals, given by Hauke Bruns and Bodil van Groningen à Stuling - Vlaar. They will create an atmospheric soundscape during the whole day, so you’ll be more likely to dive easily into your inner being.
To close the day and ceremonies off, a sauna event will be given by Nature Nurture by Bodil Aina & Jeremy Vlaar. This Sauna Experience helps you reflect, give gratitude and thanks, reconnect with your body and the present moment, give you a deep warmth, physical nourishment, relaxation and wellness!
