I have attended a number of ceremonies with Volker and highly recommend him to fellow knowledge seekers.

Volker has the gifts of kindness, integrity and strength. He holds a sacred space that allows you to go where you need to, with the reassurance that he will keep you safe. His work has helped me delve deep into my shadows, understand the path I need to follow and open my heart to the beauty that abounds.

I am so grateful for the medicine and the tools that he shares. It is an honor to attend his ceremonies.
