WHO WE ARE
We, Anke and Marie Louise, are experienced curanderas. We have been leading plant medicine ceremonies for more than 15 years.
During our long-term shamanic dietas in isolation with numerous master plants deep in the Peruvian jungle, we experienced more than 300 guided ceremonies with highly experienced indigenous shamans.
Our teachers are most experienced masters like Kestembetsa and Juan Flores, life coaches like Tony Robbins, Marko Evore, the energy healer Michael Barnett and other mentors who focus on body and breath work. The unique approach we created together is uniting ancient and modern consciousness raising techniques.
Though our presence we inspire people to fully step back into their own strength.

“I have participated in a number of plant medicine ceremonies that cleared emotional and energetic blockages leaving me feeling lighter and more centered. My time with Anke and Marie Lou at Imiloa took me to the next level. Their medicine, their individual attention, and their insights and guidance were instrumental in helping me have an incredibly transformative experience. What more can I say? I am eternally grateful to them for their love and for providing such a safe place to go deep. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
“I would like to thank you! Three years ago you brought me in contact with the medicine for the first time. And that changed my life completely. My attitude towards life, the world around me and above all towards my own self has changed fundamentally.
Sometimes, when I pause and look back, I cannot quite believe that this person of that time was actually me. Not only have I taken some steps to see who I truly am and what I can be – with your help it was possible to discard many of the patterns that have destroyed, inhibited, restrained, constrained me – drugs and those shackles that have plagued my spirit itself, to name just a few of them.
Thank you for your work and your patience – especially when I sometimes tried to escape and ran into the opposite direction. Thank you for your perseverance, even when I was overcome by self satisfaction and excessive comfort:) Thank you for always sharing your knowledge and insights and helping me gain a better understanding of the larger and smaller contexts.
Briefly put: thank you for guiding me on a journey that makes my life richer, deeper and much more fulfilling. And above it all, thank you for giving me tools that allow me to continue this work also by myself.”
“Anke and Marie Lou are undoubtedly two of the most extraordinary instances of humanity I have ever had the joy to encounter. Their loving presence in this world is a great blessing to all. When I first had the honor of sitting in ceremony with them, I remember experiencing the following revelation: “Wow, this is what is possible for humanity. It is within our potential to become ascended beings while still on Earth.” The two of them possessed such a grace, groundedness, centeredness, and lucidity that they struck me as existing at a level of consciousness not far from that of bodhisattva masters. They exhibited a profound intrinsic authority—the sort that can arise only as a result of venturing deep into the caverns of oneself and one’s reality to confront whatever dragons and unicorns one might find there. “We’ve been to Hell and back together,” Anke once told me.
As I spent more time with Marie Lou and Anke in and out of ceremony, my Love for them continued to expand. They approach their work with a joy, lightness, inner strength, and humility that is akin to fresh water from a mountain stream. They possess a remarkable awareness of their oh-so-human foibles and are able to view their own shadows with tenderness and humor. Someone once told me, “Never trust a shaman who cannot laugh in ceremony.” I came to understand the wisdom in these words via my experiences of Anke and Marie Lou’s pristine balance of reverence and levity. When it is time to focus and ground, they focus and ground. When it is time to laugh, they laugh. When it is time to be radically honest, they are radically honest.
When I think of Anke and Marie Lou, the image that comes to mind is that of two mysterious trickster sorceresses bearing magical healing potions from otherworldly realms. The two of them seem to be manifesting an archetypal Yin-and-Yang-esque partnership, as each of their energies complements and contrasts the other’s in a Sacred Dance of Duality. Anke’s energy is like a compassionate yet sharp-taloned eagle, a red-hot katana ready to slice through vast layers of delusion at a moment’s notice. Marie Lou’s eyes are like windows to the abyss; her energy is that of a shadowy yet playful serpent destined to transcend all cages. Their unforgettable smiles give you the feeling that they see and understand realities you cannot presently imagine. It is no exaggeration to say that my life has been enriched immeasurably as a result of being divinely guided to these powerful enchantresses. I am tremendously grateful to call them my friends, collaborators, teachers, and fellow human beings”
