About us

After being born and raised in the Netherlands with the name Karen, having my energetic and shamanic practice there for years and experiencing enormous spiritual growth and development, it was time for the next step.
Or better said: time for a new beginning!

Through visions I was invited to the beautiful island of Ibiza and I started my new adventure there. I felt a deep connection with the island. The higher vibration frequency, the light, the warmth, the beautiful nature, Ibiza turned out to be a soul desire and therefore a homecoming for me. I have been guided by trust and complete surrender to realize my dream and mission.

And now my dream has been realized: Healing Centre Chiwanka. A beautiful place, a sacred place where I, as a shaman and lightworker, together with my powerful team can serve the greater whole through Light and Love. A place where you too can come home.

Be welcome to our tribe!

Forever grateful.

For me, life is a great journey of discovery of self-realization, healing, growth, living from the heart and a constant deepening and connection with all that is.
My high sensitivity, artistic talents and healing gift is something that was given to me in this life and for which I am very grateful.

A crisis brought me a near-death experience in which I experienced an enormous power of Love that was not of this world. It brought me into direct contact with the Divine where I received “downloads” and amplified my healing gift. Through this experience I was able to transform my trauma into service for others. This is how a deeper connection with Shamanism came my way.

I see it as my calling to create a safe space for you in which you can surrender to the deeper layers of Love, healing, growth and awareness. I give various Shamanic ceremonies such as the Rite of the Womb, Rebozo, Shamanic breathwork, Warm water rebirthing, Kundalini yoga and Healing massages.

I feel privileged to be able to work with the Chiwanka team, where we join and strengthen each other’s strengths to offer you a soft bedding to (re)discover the journey to your true self.

My journey includes a desire for adventure, consciousness, deeper connection (human and nature), love, spirituality, soul wisdom, meditation, health, experiencing, learning and unlearning.

Life has offered me great opportunities, but also great challenges. Life has led me to the work I do now: Facilitator and Coach in the field of men’s work, tantra, breathwork, shamanism and consciousness. I facilitate men’s circles, transformative retreats and workshops where I give people the power to fully open their hearts and be transparent, authentic and vulnerable.

I want to live my truth. I want to open myself more deeply to love, let go of old conditioning and let my soul shine. I like to share my love, insights and inspire others to a new way of being.

My name is Josha, I am Karen’s son. I went to the beautiful island of Ibiza, because I felt that I could make better use of my qualities here than in the Netherlands.

I believe that we have so much within us and the intention is to discover our gifts and develop them further.

My specialty is to empower people and lift them up again, I do this in combination with personal training and life coaching.

Motivating, stimulating and transforming is what I do with people. Think outside the box and look at your opportunities.

How big would you dream, if you knew you couldn’t fail?

I am Peggy Konings and a grateful team member of Chiwanka. The caregiver and controller in the background, but also Karen’s friend for 30 years.

I live in the Netherlands with my husband and two daughters and I work as a management assistant at various organizations. Keeping everything in order administratively and organizationally is my strength. And I lovingly use that at Chiwanka, so that the team can do what they are good at. Namely providing the participants with a fantastic week with a variety of sessions, each contributing to development and growth in a unique way.

Don’t hesitate, just do it. You can’t give yourself a better gift!

Love, Peggy
