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.

In her own words:
Do you really want to come through to the other side? When your feelings come up, what can you do?
A bit like when you jump from an airplane, that's powerful and the only thing you can do if you're angry, scared or out of it is waiting until you hit the ground. Because you do that. This is also true with emotions. You know it well. In some situations, you just can not stop screaming, or run away from your feelings. It's just too much.
Take a deep breath. You can not get to the bottom of this. These strong uncontrollable feelings originate somewhere deep inside you. A place that the ordinay consciousness has no access to. Therefore, if you really want to come through to the other side and feel free, feel more joy in you, see your everyday life change for your eyes, you go into deeper states of consciousness to access the entire wound that has been implanted in you. Often they originate from when you were very small and you remember nothing from that time.
I have experienced it myself. I know how it feels to be scared, total fear, completely out of it, to hide, to be able to nothing, to hate, to feel nothing - a shit, totally worthless, that I'm never good enough, whatever i do, I'm doing and trying to impress others to be more than I am because I'm afraid to be me etc, etc ...
My dad has hit me many times when I was little, with a belt on my bare numb. I screamed and my mother cried and could not stop my father. I and her asked him to stop, but he did not want to. He could not. He was trapped in his own childhood pattern. I know today, but I did not know that time. All this grief I have been working on for several years in ceremonies, where Jacob with his great experience and love helps me. It has not been easy to go back in time and relive something that I only remembered slightly. But by confronting it, I accepted everything on a deep plan and forgave both my father, my mother, my sister and myself for everything that happened between us. Today there is pure love between us and we have the best relationship. It is something that is the greatest that has dissolved in my life.
I'm forever grateful to Jacob for being my facilitator / modern shaman and the medicine that have an ability you can not imagine the power of if you have not tried it in the right set and settings, with people who know how It helps you when you need it.
There are many who say that a ceremony has been more valuable than 10 years of therapy.
And I feel a strong call to help those who want on the other side. To help using medicine, music and safe settings, as I have been helped myself.
That is why we are doing ceremonies in the Magic Garden.
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.
