Read “My Ayahuasca experience: how it changed my outlook on love and life”

Lydia, 28, is originally from the Netherlands, but is now traveling full-time with her partner, Jan, and their Belgian shepherd, Oskar. As an artist, she knows how to really dive in and experience life. She also knows how to help others perceive the wisdom of their own subconscious minds and really make it part your their reality. 
She learned that connecting with nature is the same as connecting with life, and that it is the path to connecting with ourselves too. She now helps other people find this connection through nature and through creation.
