      Paul is a lovely holder of the medicine

    I did a ceremony with paul in peru at a pre-incan ruin in the beautiful blazing sun. It was my first experience and it was fantastic. Paul has spent decades in ashram's in India and it shows. He is wonderful and calm and knows how to gently hold the space of medicine. I can very highly recommend him for anyone who wants to do spiritual or healing work with huachuma.

      Thank you Spirit Plant Journeys!

    My experience with Spirit Plant Journeys is something that I'm not really sure I can put into words.. Actually, I know there is a great portion of the experience that I cannot put into words, but the rest I will attempt to articulate. Overall, it was nothing short of amazing! Through and through, it was a deeply profound, beautiful and life changing experience. The insights I've gained here are priceless, and I can easily say this is one of, if not, THE most meaningful experience I've ever had in my life. Having such awesome facilitators and shamans to guide me through the experience was definitely key, big thanks to Neils, Sarah, Bernard, and Gume! They are always there for you and whatever you may need, so you can relax knowing you're in good care, and of course, the gorgeous, lush and cozy lodging area sure doesn't hurt either.. Basically, if you're looking for a safe, comfortable and powerfully transformative retreat, then look no further!!

      Experiential Guidance and Learning

    Helene is a masterful retreat coach. She has knowledge and personal awareness that keeps her audience satisfied, yet pleasantly yearning for more. A connector, a great heart, and a knack for "knowing" is the essence of Coach Helene. A few days with her, will without doubt, be life changing.

      Colorado Retreat Leader Training

    Helene Van Manen is one of the most inspiring people I know. She is a both a great coach and a polished retreat leader. Going to her Colorado Retreat Leader Training was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in a long time. She brings the wisdom and compassion of a teacher, along with the experience and sincere desire to grow each and every one of us as retreat leaders and as more self-actualized men and women. Her retreats are nested in one of nature's most beautiful places, southern Colorado! The training provides for deep reflection, as well as practical aspects on leading retreats. Great care is given to the comfort of each individual attending one of Helene’s trainings including food, lodging, massage and easy travel from airport to lodge! If you want a retreat experience, and if you want to learn how to lead retreats, this experience can not be surpassed!
