His experience with ayahuasca gives him the ability to help facilitate your own deep experience, and gives you the confidence to restore the coherence and harmony in your life, and transform your body, heart, mind and soul – physically, mentally, emotionally, & spiritually.
Sabina, also a certified doctor in ancestral medicine, has been involved and working with ayahuasca for the last 12 years. Her guidance as a psychotherapist during your ayahuasca retreat helps you to understand your own individual experiences and get the most from the retreat.
Sabina has thousands of hours of practical therapy experience and her style is largely based on the philosophies of Laura Gutman and the school of ''biografia humana'' which involves taking a deep dive into your experiences right the way from the womb, through infancy, to where you are today.
In addition to her therapeutic support, she's also passionate about the empowerment of women.
