Natasja has had a vibrant, traditionally professional, career ‒ with chapters as a trained photographer and a businesswoman, directing multiple companies and working variously in fashion, hospitality, and events ‒ but she started to show an aptitude for her intuitive mystic abilities at a young age.

Born in Amsterdam to a Dutch mother and Portuguese father, Natasja’s Clair Sensory abilities (Natasja holds a fusion between Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Claircognizance, Clairempathy, and Clairsentience) were first evident in childhood. Through trauma release, trance states and healing journey’s she has had several initiatory awakening experiences ever since her teenage years which she now catalysis into her space holding, advisory role’s and mentoring practices.

Throughout her professional development, she maintained strong ties to her innate sense of spirituality, by concurrently studying energy healing, Reiki, ThetaHealing®, emotional freedom techniques (EFT), neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), Trauma Informed Care, Client centered coaching techniques and Wisdom Traditions.

In her rituals and ceremonies you may experience a neo-shamanic approach to the space and use of the elements, while maintaining a reverence for the traditions and acknowledging its Elders and teachers.

Grow Medicine

Join Natasja in solidarity-based support so we can ensure the original stewards of plant medicines are uplifted, honored, and supported in the search for collective healing. Natasja donate’s personally and with Awaken The Medicine Within retreats directly to Grow Medicine a percentage from each of their retreat participants.

Indigenous medicines and their cultures are at risk of being destroyed, lost, and forgotten – along with the traditional knowledge embedded within them. With the growing popularity of ayahuasca, iboga, toad, and other sacred medicines, it’s important that we respect and honor the traditional knowledge holders of these medicines. If we want to avoid sacred plant medicine getting turned into yet another extractive industry, we need to engage in best practices now. How do you do that??

Grow Medicine — an easy-to-use mobile platform that allows you to make a donation to Indigenous-led initiatives that support Indigenous medicine and bio-cultural conservation. A donation through Grow Medicine supports the ecosystems and communities that have crucial relationships with these medicines upon which they rely for resilience, spiritual health, and cultural survival.
