Veerle Phara & Yves

My name is Veerle Phara,

born in Belgium but a child of Pacha Mama. My name has Germanic roots and comes from PharaHilde, which means literally a Female Travelling Warrior.  I have lived in full connection with the world throughout my life, with my family, by travelling, guiding groups, investigating on indigenous cultures,… As a young adult, we lived several years in North-America, back in Belgium I studied history of art and travelled to Spain and Latin America. As a child I was already passionated by dance, yoga and movement, but also by nature, the extended fields, the ocean and shamanism. Yemaya (Orisha, Mother of the Ocean and the Sea), in Quechua Mama Qocha, has always taken and important and respectful place in my life, as well as Pacha Mama, Mother of the Earth.

I lived, worked and travelled long in Latin America and was initiated in the holistic visions, rituals and ceremonies of indigenous cultures through intense work and living experiences. My Chilean lifestory after the dictature, living at the feet of the Pacific in a primitive paradise, searching for a balance between living and surviving, for new, own authentic values. Leander and Sara Yula, my two wonderfull adolescents, carry Chilean blood and in their genes, West and South melting together. Slowly it became clear in my life that it is my life journey to break down barriers on every level, to bring people, cultures and especially women together, let them encounter and re-member who they really are inside… I love the Goddess tradition and bringing people in a re-connection with their primal force…

in my Heart and Soul; I am a Luminous Warrior, and my Soul longs to bring women of all ages and races, back to their Female Tribal Nature

As a Fire & Earth Keeper, we give sweatlodges/temazcales, fire walks, rituals, ceremonies and training, throughout the world. The Sweatlodge for me is a Temple of the Earth, a place to come home in your body, to un-do yourself of all masks and superficial values, and to sink into yourself. To (re) find the balance and become one with all elements, to re-member who you really are, and be re-born from the womb of Mother Earth.

I am Yves, fire keeper, heart warrior, connected to my ancestors

I was born in a small village in Belgium. Very young I lost both my parents, and lived through some turbulent years of living and surviving. At 35 years I had a heavy accident that changed abrupt my life. In that periode I found my inner Self, and started to immerse myself more in the spiritual world.   Through diverse trainings as holistic therapy, reiki, polarity massage, medium, Munay Ki, Nusta Karpay, and a profound interest in shamanism, my heart and intuition started to open. I became clear that my capacity to feel and my strong intuition, are the guides in my life. Supported by my guides and ancestors, my passed away father and an indian warrior, I feel how to heal people and to support them in their personal proces.

Together with my guides and my drum I know how to liberate entities the way upwards, to purify places or houses.

Since 2001 I started to immerse myself in sweatlodge ceremonies and fire keeper and started to guide my own swaetlodge ceremonies, first in Holland, then in Belgium and throughout the world. Our sweatlodge ceremonies are based on a mixture of Navajo shamanism, temazcales and Celtic sweatlodges.  They are not traditional, the focus lies on a creative proces with space for liberation, openess, transformation, encounters of people, hearts, breaking with rules that do not belong to the energy we live in nowadays. We also work with heart medicine, as sacred plants, where I feel being carried by the energy of the plant to coach and support people in their proces. It is as I am becoming one with the sacred plant…. I also love to help others with soundhealing through blockades or burdens.

With our own space in Portugal, the Temple of the (h)Earth, it became clear to me that with Veerle I receive the opportunity to invite other elders or coaches to bring out their ‘being’ here. It is our purpose to coach people and bring them together, in a space where afterwards one feels purified, healed, that one can return home with a loving and enriched feeling of wellness, that questions aill be answered, through insights of support from the spirits.

I am a builder, for many years I have been working in eco-constructing and building yurts . Recently I started my own company, Eco Dreams, using sustainable and creative materials and processes.*

Let us enter this challenge and may I invite you all to take place…

‘In each heart there is a deep, spiritual longing to a sustainable and firm faith, a positive strong faith, that makes us believe in a magical existence. An authentic faith that ancres our being. A lot of young people miss this firm ancre for their soul. Let us arise together to a higher dimension so we can help our children and the ones near us to find this ancre…”
