This is our core team.
We have also 2 therapists and 2-3 experienced helpers. When there are 12 travellers we are 7- 8 people taking care of them.
Here is a short info about the core team.
Jacob Moth (1967) has more than 30 years of experience with technologies of the sacred. He has received training from Stanislav Grof, Terence Mckenna, Michael Barnet, Art Reade and danish pioners 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 has 674 pages. While many books describe excerpts of inner journeys, this is the first to describe all the aspects of a psychonaut’s journey for 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.
On this link you can find the book.

Together with his wife Ecaterina he has created the Magic Garden and the LilaRose band.
Ecaterina Moth was born 1978 in Moldova. 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 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 strength to believe in and manifest Jacobs vision. With their band LilaRose they have worked with producer Gary Wallis - who has been a drummer in Pink Floyd.
She started her inner journey in 2001. She is an experienced inner traveler and has undertaken a deep inner journey herself with the help of yoga, meditation, psychotherapy and alternative medicine.
Georg was born in 1949. He moved as young to the United States. Here he founded family and had a successful bricklayer company. As a 37 year old he came into a deep personal crisis. He was working to kill himself. His father died at the age of 42, his uncle died at age 42, his grandfather died at age 42 and there was a pattern that triggered a "spiritual emergency". He entered half-psychotic conditions - "was there any life after 42 years?". He therefore sought an Oglala Indian wise man.
Here he was trained as a ceremony master, received shamanistic and spiritual guidance, and underwent several powerful vision quests in the desert. His quest for deeper spiritual clarification and insight was really aroused. In 1991 he was divorced and returned to Denmark.
At a gathering of men at a Danish practicing shaman, Georg and Jacob met in 1992. Among all of them, Jacob and Georg had the two only shaman drums brought together. Soon after, they met in Jacob's little studio and began to make music together. Georg helped Jacob to rebuild its small house to a bigger and better functioning recording studio and "temple".
In 1993, Georg Jacob and some other acquaintances took part in a vision quest in Sweden. To the best of his ability, he conveyed the teachings he himself had received from the Oglala Indians. Since returning from the United States, he has served as a spiritual guide and shaman and settled groups of holy medicine in his own way. In addition to practicing shamanism, he began studying Buddhism and meditating. Georg has been a regular part of our team since 2015.
Peter 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 practice with Troll, Peter, had a very strong and spiritually challenging experience that changed his life. An experience that impressed him and who was waiting for release for many years.
After many years, Peter was a professional composer and musician in a critical phase of his life. The spark of life and music was gone and the mentioned experience back in the 1985 wake-up room, which had never been released, called him. Therefore, he was attending a two-week retreat in Peru with 7 ceremonies, which was a powerful initiation for Holy Medicine and an eye opener. Now he sought some to share these experiences with and thought that it was Jacob he should talk to.
Peter came up here in 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.
