Ana Scherer:

Coach, positive psychology practitioner, entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, facilitator, former world-class swimmer, and forever athlete.

My enthusiasm with the power of psychedelics and what it can do for us happened after my experiences with this incredible plant medicine. In my 19 years as a life coach, I have always wanted to find something that could “crack people’s hearts and minds open” so they could realise faster that the answers lie within themselves. In my opinion, plant medicine is the answer I was looking for.

After much research, I realised that this is the path I want to pursue. I also realised that people need a way to fully integrate their insights from their journeys into their lives. They needed support, which is how this model flourished in my head. Through coaching, people can incorporate their insights and plan action moving forward. I want to devote my life to this mission.

I am a coach with 19 years of experience, a positive psychology practitioner, an entrepreneur and a student of trauma and its impact on advancing us in our growth process. I am also fully committed to providing you with the support and space to dive deeply into yourself and explore your subconscious.

I am enthusiastic about this new path and excited about sharing the power of psilocybin with the world and with you! All types of plant medicine are an incredible gift from nature, and combined with a structured set and setting and experienced facilitators, they can propel you to new heights and reveal many answers from your subconscious. We can support you in returning to the path and reconnecting with your true self to regain clarity and meaning in your life or find it for the first time. I am truly honoured to be your guide into this unique experience!

Stella:

Experienced retreat facilitator, therapist, coach, transformational breathwork specialist, body-dearmouring and yoga instructor.

Together with Ana, we form your dedicated team, ready to help and support you on your journey into your true essence.

I turned 46 years old last week, and I’m happily living in Delft with my newlywed husband, Jasper and our furry triplets.

In my 'previous life', I ventured into hospitality management and Human Resources, dedicating numerous years as a Personal Assistant to various teams and CEOs. My passion for supporting people has always coursed through my veins. Simultaneously, a profound curiosity about human behaviour has intrigued me endlessly. Questions like, "What drives people to act the way they do? How does the human psyche function, particularly concerning trauma?" have occupied my thoughts. It was in 2014, during my first encounter with a psychedelic retreat, that my desire to assist and empower others through plant medicines was born.

Nowadays, I combine all the skills I gained as a coach and therapist in my practice, where I support people on their inner journey using tools such as psychedelic plant medicines, body de-armouring, transformational breathwork, and yoga. To delve deeper into the relationship between body, mind, and trauma, I have dedicated recent years to the study of Body-Integrated Psychotherapy. Commencing next March, I will train to specialise in becoming a Body-Oriented Trauma Therapist.

From my own experiences and also working for more than nine years as a facilitator, psychedelics are gifts from Mother Nature! Sometimes, they give you not what you are waiting or hoping for, but precisely what you need at the time.

I'm there for you during the retreat, providing support and a safe space. This will help you trust the process and deeply dive into yourself.
