About Michaela

Born as Michaela Schaefer in 1968 in Berlin, adopted in als Mieke van der Meer.

After my study at the Art academy A.K.I in Enschede my work started as an artist. In 1997 i started realising my dream and bought an old schoollbuilding in Roodeschool that i transformed with many helping hands of volenteers to the magical Center Kura Waka.

I am a very proud mother of 3 children Ischrah (1991) Lais (1996) en Mamre –Tica Tane Mahuta (2005)

From 1999 on Michaela has been joining many courses and educations, o.a. aan de School voor Sjamanisme.  She is a healer as well Vision Quest leader Various indiginous medicine people have croosed her path and it has been a great honour to study with o.a Ron Evans, Canadian Native Elder, Wai Turoa Morgan, Maori Elder.  Norma Panduro's  curandero from Peru touched her deeply in 2007. Concha Garcia en Randy Allen from New Mexico have risen a deep respect towards the traditional Huichol en N.A.C. ceremonies.

Throughout this deep awakening she felt a deep longing and the promise she made to Norma Panduro to keep the ceremonies alive, for the future generations.

In the center Kura Waka she organises workshops with national and international teachers.

She runs sweatlodges, Vision Quests and Deep Body Healing workshops at Kura Waka as well where invited.

Michaela: "Nature is my greatest teacher". I life and manifest my dream in my center Kura Waka. In contact with my passion, and all the wisdom that i received from  various indiginous medicine people, I love to share this wisdom.
