In 2021 in September I had a chat with Kiana from "You in alignment" Podcast. She was a guest a few month ago in a retreat center where I worked as a facilitator. We both connected very well and I felt honored to be invited from her in her Podcast.
This is what she wrote:
Special guest Ute Behrendt joins us and shares how we can work with plant medicines such as Ayahuasca on our healing journeys.
Ute Behrendt is the founder of True Journey Retreats where she holds Masterplant retreats, designed for healing and learning with Plant medicines such as ayahuasca.
By connecting ancestral knowledge and plant wisdom with our modern way of life, Ute believes we can align our life with our values and live in our highest potential. She provides retreats designed for small groups in the Peruvian jungle to have a life changing experience. Where you work with her and trustworthy, lifelong trained traditional Shipibo Shamans from a well known and highly respected healer lineage.
Since January 2015 Ute has lived in Peru and dedicated her life to healing, studying and working with sacred plants in the Shipibo Tradition. Besides working as a facilitator and coach/mentor in her "true-journey" projects in the Ucayali region, Ute also works part time as a facilitator at a well known big Ayahuasca Center close to Iquitos.
Ute has also studied in mindfulness, psycho - spiritual inquiry, integration, and transformative coaching.

I am so excited to have Ute on the podcast! I actually met Ute when I went to Costa Rica to do an ayahuasca medicine retreat. My experience working with this medicine was life changing. Ute was the facilitator of the retreat I was on, she has worked and truly dedicated her life to working with this plant medicine and has facilitate hundred of ceremonies.

Alex vom Podcast "Journey - die Reise zu dir selbst" hatte mich auf deutsch interviewed.
In der heutigen Folge hatte ich wieder die Chance ein tiefes Gespräch über die Art und Weise wie Ayahuasca als Master Plant Teacher auf unser System wirkt zu führen, dieses mal mit Ute Behrendt.
Ute kommt ursprünglich aus Deutschland, lebt aktuell jedoch in Peru, wo sie sich seit 6 Jahren in der Ausbildung einer bekannten Shipibo Heiler Familie befindet.
Sie bietet mittlerweile Ihre eigene Retreats an und wird aufgrund Ihrer tiefen Kenntnisse in traditioneller Heilkunde als auch westlichem Verständnis von vielen größeren Retreat Centern eingeflogen und gebucht. Sie stellt damit eine Ideale deutschsprachige Ansprechpartnerin für alle dar, die sich für eine Ayahuasca Reise in Peru interessieren und Support sowohl bei der Vorbereitung als auch der Integration benötigen.
Wie so oft sprechen wir zuerst über ihre eigenen Struggle im Leben, die sie letztlich auf den aktuellen Heilungsweg gebracht haben.
Zudem erfahrt ihr Ihre Tipps zur Vorbereitung und Integration und was für Sie nach all den Jahren des Lernens die größten Erkenntnisse und Veränderungen in Ihrer Selbstwahrnehmung waren. Welche Themen wir als Deutsche speziell mit in die Retreats bringen und welche Empfehlungen Sie bei der Auswahl eines Centers oder Schamanen hat, um nicht in die falschen Hände zu geraten.
Viel Spaß bei der Journey von Ute und ich freue mich wenn ihr eine positive Bewertung da lasst und den Podcast mit Freunden teilt.

2 Episodes with Yourinnerstate.love Podcast:
In the first part of this two-part conversation, Ute Behrendt and Paulette Waltz discuss Ute's journey with plant medicines. The conversation begins with marijuana and the interaction with Ayahuasca, talk about the need for wisdom-keepers especially in the formative ages, and how Ute found her Shipibo maestros and the lineage and tree which she has committed to working with. Excerpt from this episode: "And I mean, what I feel is really missed in our societies, is the wisdom keepers who teach us as teenagers, you know, if we would have like, parents, or teachers or someone in every school, or in every village, or in general and society, who writes what you can read the newspapers, where it's like, where we, where we receive teachings, how to use plants. How can we use it where the risk when we don't use it in the right way? What can happen? And I think I mean, this is the missing link. Yes. Because we are I mean, I don't know how it was for you. But for me, I was so curious about consciousness. I was so curious to explore the new there's so much more, but I didn't had a teacher and then they had a wisdom keeper." "I think I never committed to something else before. And also, you know, when I when this happened in after this first dieta in the Arkana ceremony in the last ceremony of the dieta. I mean, I don't know if I was aware about what do I really commit, but it just happened, it just happened....and I was so grateful. Also to meet these wisdom keepers, because I told you as a teenager, I always missed with my mushrooms experience and other psychedelic experiences I experienced things were new, it's true. And I know I was always a little kind of alone with it. I mean, I had my friends, really lovely people, lovely friends, big connections, good friendships. But with my experience, I felt often, okay, I'm figuring that out by myself. And when I met the Shipibo, since 2015, the first time and when I met 2016, my maestros. And I knew after this first year with this tree, I knew this is the lineage and this is the tree. So I had like this, it's like a little bit like something what always was missed, but I was not really aware that I missed it. It got filled, and it was like wow, something inside of me was longing for that wisdom keepers, for these shamans, for these people who know how to work with these subtle energies and connecting you to this world of a tree, which is like this different dimension. They call it also 'palo volador,' it's like a 'flying medicine world' translated." Ute Behrendt has been dedicated to learning and studying long-term masterplant diets with a well-known and respected Shipibo Healer lineage in the Ucayali region in Peru. She sees herself as a bridge between ancestral wisdom and western understanding of life. She organizes and hosts masterplant retreats and diets and provides psycho-spiritual inquiry sessions and mentoring.
In the second part of this two-part conversation, Ute Behrendt and Paulette Waltz continue talking about Ute's journey with plant medicines, specifically her experience with one lineage. The conversation continues with the exploration of the internal processes while in plant medicine ceremonies and the weaving of different healing modalities in ceremony and in life. Excerpt from this episode: "...to be seen and understood, you know, in times where it's a lot of confusion, because transformation also means confusion. Because when all this structure gets loose and shaken up, there are there are moments where you don't know who you are, you don't know what to do You don't know what is real and what is not real. And you don't know, do I have a perspective? Do I want to have a perspective? Do I want to have a view? Now? There's a lot of confusion in that times. It's important. Someone who understands." "And working with the same plants gave me like a space and somehow a connection where you know, I didn't change lineages. I didn't change plants. Let's say I had this energetic field where I'm held and I'm in a lineage. There so much I see in a way like memories stored of knowledge and of teachings and also being in the world from mainly one tree. I mean the tree was the world of the tree was and is holding me and all the teachings and all the washing cleansing through... and the lineage were working with they are very very famous and well-known and well-respected and they had all their ancestors they were onayas and morayas onayas are the one who knows and the morayas are the highest as far as I know the highest spiritualists in the shipibo tradition they say they are not any more living here on Earth. So there through the Icaro through the work from my maestros, I think I was I was and I am held in a very safe energetic field. And this is what is guiding me what is protecting me what is in interaction with me all the time."

Universe Within Podcast Ep 38 - Ute Behrendt - Sacred Plant Medicines, Facilitation & Integration Hey everybody! Episode 38 of the show is out. In this episode, I spoke with my friend Ute Behrendt.
Ute and I met at the Amazonian plant medicine center, the Temple of the Way of Light, where she works as a facilitator for plant-medicine ceremonies working with the Shipibo lineage of medicine. I’ve worked with Ute for a number of years now and really enjoy her partnership, wisdom, kindness, and care for all of the guests she looks after. She has had a varied and interesting life including working in psychiatric hospitals and in therapeutic institutions in Germany. She has also spent a number of years learning from a strong Shipibo family of doctors. I think this gives her a really balanced and holistic approach to her work. She is constantly learning and growing and has a lot of insight to offer. I think you all will enjoy this conversation and learn a lot.

She believes that everyone is able to find inspiration through connecting to true essence. Before she moved to Peru, she worked in a psychiatric hospital and in therapeutic institutions in Germany for almost 10 years. In her past work in supporting humans on their path of healing, she always felt there was a missing part. In Peru, working and studying with the Shipibo Healers and Sacred Plant Medicine, she found the missing link.”
