Dennis Notten,
M. A.

Dennis Notten (03-03-1981) was born in the Netherlands and started his life as a classical musician. He studied at prestigious music schools in Europe, such as the Academy of Music “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin, and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich, where he finished his studies Summa Cum Laude in 2006. He played in world-class orchestras such as the Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Oslo Philharmonic, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony and many more, often as a principal Bassoonist, and worked with world-class conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Bernard Haitink, Sir Simon Rattle and Maris Janssons.

His work schedule allowed him to travel and learn from many different traditions and backgrounds all over the world, including countries such as Tibet, India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, New Zealand, Egypt, Brazil and Peru. During those travels for more than 15 years, he connected with a wide range of modalities including yoga, meditation, breath work, energy work and the power of sound. He is a certified Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher, a Reiki master, and is certified in several other transformational modalities. Journeys to South America connected him with the Indigenous practices of the Amazon Rainforest, especially the entheogenic use of Ayahuasca and the use of music in these rituals. Seeking personal transformation on a journey to Brazil in 2012, he encountered Padrinho Alfredo, the spiritual leader of the Santo Daime, who gave him the blessings to work with their sacrament, Ayahuasca.

After his journey to Brazil he decided to give up his successful classical music career and open a center for health and wellness in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru (2013). This period deepened his commitment to understanding well-being and facilitating personal transformational experiences. Furthermore, he dedicated himself to the use of plants in a therapeutic setting. Clients of this center worked with the mental, emotional and spiritual roots of their diseases through connecting with plant medicines, nutrition work, massage and various mental and emotional therapies.

In 2013, called by a dream, Dennis was the first Western person to enter one of the villages of the Yawanawá Indians, a native tribe in the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. There he lived and studied with various spiritual leaders of the tribe. This study included a total of 1 year and 4 months dieta, periods of deep solitude in the jungle, with very simple foods and no water, in complete celibacy, connecting deeply with the traditional medicines and knowledge of the jungle. Through these experiences Dennis learned more about the medical properties of the plants and realized the huge potential of this hidden knowledge. Together, he and the Yawanawa people started to preserve that knowledge by building a center and starting a medicinal garden.

Since closing his center in Peru in 2015, Dennis has been leading transformational works all over the world. He sees it as his mission to be a voice for the Santo Daime, the Indigenous cultures, the protection of the Amazon and the sustainable and conscious use of traditional plant medicines. Dennis is committed to being an open channel to raise consciousness, using the various tools he has discovered throughout his life.
