Meet The Team
Our ceremonies are led by Jacob Moth and facilitated by our experienced and proficient travel team. We have a regular team of selected people, each with their own skills and experience, who are under the continuous training and supervision of Jacob.
Jacob Moth (1967)
Jacob has 36 years of experience dealing with various technologies of the sacred. He has received training from various mentors and masters of these technologies including Stanislav Grof, Terence Mckenna, Michael Barnet, Art Reade, and danish pioneers Klaus Gormsen, Jørgen Lumbye, Torben Blond and more.
He has written a book named ‘Land of the Nocturnal Butterfly – an Inner Journey’.
In the preface to the book, Dr. Stanislav Grof wrote: ‘...The honesty with which the author reports all the promises and pitfalls encountered by the dedicated “psychonaut” makes this book a must for all those who have decided to undertake the adventure of self-discovery and to seek deep inner psychospiritual transformation.''
The book reaches a total of 674 pages. While many numerous books describe excerpts of inner journeys, this is entirely unique as it is the first to describe all the aspects of a psychonaut’s journey extending over 20 years.
Every page of this book is enriched by Jacob´s artwork illustrating the contents of sessions, dreams, and spontaneous visions. The book is available in several formats, hardcover, PDF, Kindle, and audiobook ( 22 hours) and can also be obtained at the ceremonies.
Ecaterina and Jacob Moth
Ecaterina Moth (1978)
Ecaterina Moth is a spiritual guide, facilitator, singer and healer. She is the co-creator of The Magic Garden - a place that is created to support people on their adventure of self-discovery.
Ecaterina was born in Moldova in 1978. She started singing and went to a music school from the age of 5, where she studied piano, music history, singing. At the age of 16, she was admitted to the Music Conservatory in Chisinåu, as the youngest student ever, where she studied jazz and pop singing.
Ecaterina came to Denmark in 1998. She met Jacob Moth on a jam session in 1999.
Their love and their music gave them the necessary strength to believe in and manifest Jacobs's profound vision - The Magic Garden. With their band LilaRose they have worked with producer Gary Wallis - who used to be a drummer in the famous band Pink Floyd.
Ecaterina started her inner journeys in 2001. Through undertaking hundreds of deep inner journeys, with Jacob Moth as her guide, Ecaterina has felt her heart expanding and has gained many experiences of feeling at one with all beings and universes.
Ecaterina is facilitating group ceremonies, individual and couples sessions, full moon global meditations. She has been guiding hundreds of people in ceremonies and sessions where she both sings and supports them through their journeys with authenticity, love, and compassion.
With unique devotion, empathy and patience Ecaterina support people to go deep into themselves and feel, embrace, release and process powerful experiences and emotions. People express that they feel welcome and loved in Ecaterina’s affectionate presence.
Ecaterina’s magical elf-like singing is an essential part of the powerful and transformative ceremonies and concerts offered at The Magic Garden.

Peter Hviid (1963)
Peter Hviid was born in 1963.
Peter and Jacob met back in 1985. He was part of the band "Troll", of which besides him two other members played a very important role in Jacob's life.
During a practicing session with Troll, Peter had a very strong and spiritually challenging experience that altered his life direction. An experience that deeply impressed and affected him, and an experience that laid dormant for years, waiting to be released.
Years later, Peter, being a professional composer and musician, entered a critical phase of his life. His life spark and innate musical interest had dissipated and the mentioned experience back in the 1985 wake-up room, which had never been truly released, called him.
Seeking resolution, he attended a two-week retreat in Peru consisting of 7 ceremonies, which was a powerful initiation for Holy Medicine and an eye-opener.
Now he sought someone to share these experiences with and believed Jacob was the perfect person to talk to.
Peter then visited The Magic Garden and participated in a series of ceremonies as well as an individual session.
With Peter's personal experience as a traveler in inner space, his qualities as a professional composer and musician in combination with his strong loving creature made him a solid part of our team in 2017.
We have a regular team of assistants consisting of 8 specially selected male and female assistants, each with their own educational background, skills and experience.
The number of male and female assistants during the ceremonies depends on the number of participants and their gender distribution.
For 12 participants, 4-5 assistants will be present, assisting the above mentioned 4 facilitators. For example, if the participant group consists of half of each gender, the travel team will consist of half of each gender.
