      Compassionate and Kind

    Sanne is a terrific guide full of kindness, love and compassion. She has tremendous knowledge of how trauma affects us now, how it lives in our bodies, and how we can move through it. She’s also very professional: she answered all questions that both myself and my girlfriend had, she is very punctual, and very understanding to one’s needs and concerns. With her as my guide, I was fully able to reach the intentions (break through/disarm my defense mechanisms and get in touch with my younger self) I had set out for both of my ceremonies. The experience itself was extremely intense, but Sanne was there every step of the way to talk to me, comfort me, soothe me and make me feel safe and supported the entire time. I am truly grateful I had this experience with Sanne by my side and could not imagine doing it with anyone else. I could not recommend Sanne enough. She is a wonderful person and guide. Thank you Sanne.

      Emotional release

    An extraordinary experience with an expert guide. This involved two sessions, the first 4.5g with full ego dissolution and lots of emotion. This is the key as our fears appear to get trapped within our ego (the ego is developed from 3-5 years of age as a unit of measure, or standard, used in differentiating time which is necessary for concept-formation, i.e., thinking). The second of 4.0g was more pleasant, with lots of flow. Sanne's guidance was invaluable...she is a great guide and special person, and made the experience life-changing and safe. Thanks Sanne!

      A wonderful, impactful experience

    I had such an impactful experience guided by Sanne. She was open and informative beforehand and made me feel comfortable sharing my intention. During the experience, I felt so comfortable knowing that she was there - she has a wise, calming, warm presence that put me at ease. Afterwards, during the integration session, she held space for me to share my entire journey adding insightful thoughts on my experience. I highly recommend working with Sanne - she is wonderful.

      Safe and reliable

    I had the privilege of being in Sanne's hands for the first psilocybin experience of my life. I felt very safe. Sanne was present all throughout the ceremony, which lasted several hours, and she was immediately there with guidance when I needed it. I am very grateful for this experience and grateful I was in such good hands. I recommend Sanne highly. Blessings from Germany, Friederike

      Full of compassion

    My daughter and I were led by Sanne for a psilocybin trip last month and we both felt lucky that Sanne was our guide. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, calm and loving and we felt confident in her capabilities and experience which enabled us to relax and let go. Sanne has a soothing presence and is full of compassion and love. We highly recommend her.

      A true guide

    One of our greatest concerns before beginning this journey was whether we would be in the hands of a trusted guide. Sanne was a true guide in every sense of the word. She was empathetic and understanding. She adapted to our needs when they changed and guided us through experiences that, in the wrong hands, could have been quite frightening. Instead she gave us the insight to understand and even accept what was frightening which opened up doors that lead to places of total awareness. Sanne was an integral part of this experience and when the way was unclear she seemed to know exactly what to do. Most of all, she made the experience what we needed and not what we wanted. In the moment this wasn't always clear but by the end it was obvious. There are no words that can fully express the depths of gratitude we feel for her participation and guidance throughout this journey. At times we even were consciously aware of our gratitude and even thanked her (often through tears) during the journey. She was the Beatrice in a Divine Comedy we will never forget.
