Transpersonal workshop cycles with Brazilian traditions, popular medicines, body and meditation practices, and artistic expressions.

As participant you are invited to experience rituals of passage, to connect with your personal studies and journeys, to illuminate aspects to be transmuted or redirected in your life.

During this process you will be guided by elements and tools of the ayahuasca spiritual universe (such as UmbanDaime, Santo Daime, Pajelancas, etc.), Shamanic (such as Power Animals, Healing Songs, etc.) and Afro-Brazilians (such as Umbanda, Candomblé, etc.).

Please be aware that these transpersonal workshop cycles with Brazilian traditions are facilitated by Tania & Carol from Brazil and are not with Norberto and me. I’ll be be there, but Norberto not.

Note: Please don’t feel intimidated by all the new words and concepts, they will explained all to you during the workshops.

Rini, Tânia & Carol

(Monday, April 22 - April 25/26)

The aim of this journey is to observe, to illuminate, to line up and to direct our focus and intentions in Life.

In this intensive spiritual workshop you will experience deep connections with yourself - your body, memories, experiences, etc. We work with different dynamic practices that will stimulate and deepen your self-knowledge and self-development in the ‘Line of the Law’, under, mainly, the archetype of Ogum.

In mythology, Ogum is the god of the air, fire and iron, connected to order and reason. It mediates intellect and emotions. As an agent of technology, it forges tools that contribute to evolutionary processes.

And it is in this way, as a Force present in nature (both outside and within ourselves) that Ogum assists us by polishing and developing our structures. He assists us by reorienting our paths and guiding our behaviours for the benefit of the expansion, alignment, clarity and accomplishment of our intentions.

This workshop will be dedicated to the study of the archetypal facets of the Force of this Orixá. We will investigate aspects of its mystery, essence and crossing points with other elements and energies.

The idea is to establish the connection, understanding, transformation and healing of your personal and spiritual processes in these fields, allowing your powers and purposes to be made aware, liberated, redirected, strengthened, and fully manifest.

Monday, May 20 - May 23/24


In this spiritual intensive you will experience deep connections with yourselves –your body, memories, experiences, etc. – through different dynamic practices that will stimulate and deepen your self-knowledge and self-development by experiencing and understanding the ‘Line of Evolution’ under the archetypal regency of Nanā, Obaluaê and Pretos Velhos.

In mythology, Nanā, Obaluaê and Pretos Velhos are connected to the evolutionary processes of Being and the universe. Nanā is the clay, the lake, and the feminine maturity. Obaluaê is the sun, the earth, and the healer. Pretos Velhos are the elders, carries of wisdom and healing knowledge. They are actively connected to Evolution processes, being that of an individual, a family, a society, a species, a planet, etc. Their actions are guided by different vibrations, functions, forces and realities.

In this intensive, our studies will be focused on awareness, and looking into evolutionary processes and its relations with familiar social, cultural, biological and spiritual factors. Searching for awareness on automatic and unconscious running programs so that we can allow for a re-programing of subjectivities, perceptions, choices and behaviours.

As part of the series of works with UmbanDaime we have planned a very special Gira work on Saturday, April 20 from 12.00h - 21.00h.

This Gira will be again guided by Tania & Carol from Sao Paolo. The Gira will be a Gira dedicated to Ogum.


In this praise we will make homage to the Orixá Ogum, one of the regents Orixás of the year 2019 following Brazilian traditions. As regent of the Law, Ogum governs the divine laws, the natural laws, the laws of men, the laws of the heart, etc.

Portrayed by the warrior, the sword of Ogum cuts through what is harmful and opens the way. Ogum forges the instrument that leads to progress and aligns acts with the supreme. Ogum is the Orixá to whom the workers of the ‘Line of the Left’ (Guardians and Messengers) ask for reverence. He is the god of the air, fire, iron, war and technology. Among its points of Force are the train tracks, highways, open roads, crossroads and fields.

Its energy regulates vitality assisting in giving direction to paths. Focus, concentration, persistence and aiming are its vehicle. Ogum works in all the fields and directions that lead to Light.


For this Gira you need to make a reservation, for this you can use our web form. And please be aware that this work is not meant for people who didn’t drink before.

The registration desk opens at 12.00h, the Gira starts at 13.00h and will last until around 21.00h. After the Gira and for those who want; a delicious organic/vegetarian dinner will be served.

For those who travel from far, there is a possibility to book a bed for the night after the Gira.

The location is near Vianen, the Netherlands.

Below some short back ground information about the Gira works.


The ‘giras’, as they are called in Umbanda (Afro-Brazilian mestizo spiritual tradition), are rituals with songs, dances, spells where the Universal Forces are celebrated and evoked through the contact with the Orixás (yorubás deities) and other Entities (Afro-Brazilian deities, Amerindians, Easterners, etc.).

They are wheels of healing, work and development in which, by the sound of drums and other instruments, the cosmic and nature energies are called for the ceremony to vibrate in our physical and spiritual presences (bodies)  and present us with their teachings. These deities represent and are presented by the Forces of Nature, are archetypal vibrations and manifestations connected to the Existence as a whole, from macrocosmic to microcosmic realities. Manifestations in the universe outside and within us.

The circle and dances of the xirê (wheel of praise) symbolize, in some way, the ‘cosmic turn’, present in the dance of the stars, in the seasons cycle, wheel of the year, in the interactions between the atoms in our chakras, in our muscular fibers , in our DNA, etc.

Worship and evoke these Forces in this ritual, is to have contact with their manifestations in subtle forms and concrete expressions, allowing access to the fields of experience and understanding that their vibrations reveal and enable, helping to illuminate their qualities and influences in our daily life . The idea is seek a liberation of our channels and fulfilment in our existence, in this moment our journeys, in order to produce new and better possibilities and qualities of our own presence.

So that, in these ‘xires’ of healing, connection, trance and celebration, one drinks from the higher divine consciousnesses to enhance the contact and manifestation of the deity expressed in our Higher Self.

Thank you for a wonderful workshop, it was fantastic to experience Mother Aya in another way.

I found the work to be very nurturing, gentle, loving, joyful, creative, fun and made a very strong connection with the group which I have not experienced with other works with the Aya.

I felt truly at home with the magnificent energy you channeled into the circle, the music, dancing and singing it was all so complete and whole.

Stay tuned about news, rituals and special announcements.

Since I am back, I feel very protected and in a natural way I feel connected and at ease with my environment.

BTW, it was my first workshop with Ayahuasca in which I had only blissful experiences of love and unity. Normally it is kind of hellish with all the upcoming traumas for me. But it is also nice and important to have also a different experience now.

I can really say that this work is life changing and I really want to be part of it again.

I was struck by the feeling of goodness and love that beamed out of Tania, Carol and Mariana. I appreciated their approach of teaching; it gave the whole experience a depth and a bit of an understanding and respect for the works as well as for its history.

The drumming, the singing and the dancing that surrounded the workshop, together with the flexibility, the spontaneity and playfulness really added a sense of security and familiarity to me.

This workshop has changed my life.

I truly feel that I got the chance to die and to be reborn; to clean out a lot of negative energy that has trapped me and to gain insights that will help me to live my life in a new and better way.

I have gained more self love, self respect and an understanding of life’s eternal circle that will become the steady ground to dock my ship to.

I have so much to learn, and my vision of life has shifted in a very interesting direction.
