(speaks Dutch, English & Spanish)
"A lot of what I'm doing at Krakti is thanks to my mother. Growing up she was the one that introduced me to things like meditation, yoga and energy work (reiki) from a young age. I however decided not to "deal" with all that and followed a very rational and scientific path.
After years of depression however, I knew I needed a change and I slowly started rediscovering all the things my mom had taught me, and more. I started meditating again and did a Yoga teacher training in India. I also entered the plant medicine world and slowly but surely through experience, I started to learn how these work.
I don't call myself a healer or a shaman. Mostly, because I really prefer staying away from any labels, titles and boxes as they do not contribute to inner peace. They create stories, patterns and images which in turn create limitations and take away our freedom.
Also, we are all healers and shamans - first and foremost for ourselves. Healing in my opinion, is to be able to live from our own Heart space / authenticity. And who can feel your Heart space and authenticity better than you? And when we allow ourselves to be authentic and true, we contribute to the healing of the world.
It's really not the title, outfit or certificate that makes you a healer or a shaman, it's the way you live your life.
Currently I'm working towards setting up a small scale safe space in nature, where permaculture, plant medicines and people can meet in joy and peace. "
Below I would like to share (relevant) tangible credentials that might say something on a rational level - but that don't necessarily mean anything :
B.Sc. in Health Science with a minor in psychology;
Cognitive behavioral therapy;
Inner Child therapy;
200 hour Yoga Teacher Training;
working with plant medicines (huachuma and psilocybin) professionally since 2020;
Soul Realignment practitioner;
Shamanic practitioner in the Sandra Ingerman line (in training);
Living a human existence (forever in training and by far the best credential on this list).
