Why We Do What We Do

An important phenomenon is happening right now: the ancient ones, the ones who knew how to live in harmony with all of life are starting to share many of their healing gifts. They invite us to walk this land, once more, with ease, grace, power and a renewed sense of community.

Our path has led us, Beáta Alföldi and myself, Frédéric Cherri, to become bridges between ancient & modern wisdom and we offer here unique transformational experiences for those seeking true connection, transformation and empowerment: our programs, shamanic practices, plant medicine retreats or trainings are designed to help better ourselves today by remembering the wisdom of ancient times.

For us all to Evolve, Thrive and Matter.



Our goal is to bridge the gap between both ancient wisdom and modern knowledge and offer simple and accessible entry points into this vast well of healing possibilities.

Ancient Wisdom

No matter where they lived, our ancestors were earth honouring people. All of their traditions combined the teachings of nature, seasons, cycles of life, the elements, Spirit and the Sacred. Their wisdom offers today an even more crucial understanding of magic and the artful weaving of Spirit (the intangible), with matter (the tangible).
We wouldn’t offer anything of value to others without the many gifts from the elders & guardians of ageless traditions and ancient wisdoms of this world. We are deeply indebted and grateful our paths have brought us to share some of the ideas and practices of these custodians of our favourite planet. We honour the instructions, guidance and the ‘rights of passage’ we have received to enrich other peoples’ lives. We bear with humility the responsibility that comes with sharing indigenous and earth-centred practices. It is our commitment to you. 

Modern Knowledge & Bridging Worlds

In our view, it has become crucial that both ancient wisdom and modern knowledge inform one another. The Western model of psyche and medicine have become inadequate to account for the wide spectrum of possibilities the ancient ways of healing offer.

The bridge is our metaphor to reflect what inspires us to bring value to the people and communities we choose to work with, around the world. Our offering endeavours to bring people from different walks of life together and to re-connect the world of the tangible with the world of Spirit; to offer a return to the many ways of honouring Earth, Nature and our shared humanity. To offer a powerful bridge of connection is our prayer – to create, with compassion and courage, a worldwide community of likeminded individuals, and to heal all differences.
