The Team

Jacob has participated in/assisted at hundreds of ceremonies and together with Mireille he has received extensive education i facilitating Ceremonies from native Shamans in Peru. Daniel has turned out to be a natural talent in holding space especially for participants going through hard times in the Ceremonies.

Together we have what it takes to provide a safe space for everything that might come up during the transformational work done by you.

Spirit of Aya has hosted hundreds of ceremonies and until now, haven’t we seen a empty place at a retreat.

Jacob
Ayahuasquero, yoga instructor, hypnotherapist, journalist

Jacob has participated in/assisted/facilitated at hundreds of Ceremonies in and out of the Amazon Jungle which he visited numerous times during the last 12 years and received extensive training in facilitating ceremonies from native Shamans in Peru.

Jacob has a dark past with extremely destructive behaviour as a drug addict, criminal, lying, cheating, stealing and deeply unhappy person. But at the first spiritual Aya ceremony in 2004 his journey of learning how to take responsibility for his actions and own wellbeing started. There has been a lot of set backs since but finally he found his place in life making available for others what helped him to become what he is today: Full of love, empathy and willingness to walk the extra mile to help out. But with a street boy edge with a direct approach and intuitive ability to ask the right questions valued (and feared) by clients and friends.

Together with Mireille he founded what is now Spirit of Aya in Denmark back in 2014 and they have facilitated ceremonies for hundreds of participants.

Mireille
Ayahuasquero, NLP therapist and childrens yoga and mindfulness instructor

Mireille found Auahuasca (or Ayahuasca found Mireille) in 2012. Driven by the transformation she felt herself with the medicine, and her strong desire to help other people get healed, she went to the jungle in Peru to train with a shipibo shaman. Mireille is sincerely compassionate, caring and loving. She brings a soft and feminine atmosphere to the ceremony space fitting perfectly with her light yet insisting singing voice. Mireille has the ability to know what the people around her is going through inside and she will quickly pick it up if one of our participants in the group is not ok and act on it. Its hard to not feel better having a hug with Mireille.

Mireille suffered for years with severe depression with extensive self medication as a result and has been treated by the mainstream system without results. In 2011 she found a NLP Therapist that helped her take the first steps into self discovery and when she met Jacob in 2012 she went to Peru and with shamanic tea and finally got her faith in life back. Instantly she made shamanic tea the turning point of her life.
