When WITH EVeryseaSON

With the change of every season, we offer a new cycle of transformational programs and experiences. Our Spinoza Bionaut Program started in the summer 2021 taking the first groups of participants through a carefully curated curriculum that will prove its worth over the course of a lifetime.

Our new transformational experiences commence on the 21st of March 2022, the Spring equinox. In case you’d like to learn more and receive relevant Spinoza updates, please request an invite.

How transforMATIONALEXPERiences

REMEMBERYOU ARE THEMEDicine.

We are a collective of bionauts.

We explore inner worlds with fungi and flora. We discover outer worlds with friends and fellows. We guide people through fields of joy and support one another in moments of need.

We are a human growth company.

It’s our mission to transform people in connection with nature. We teach people how to transform the mind and connect with the body in order to access a deeper intuitive intelligence.

We are convinced that the benefits of psychedelics and the longevity of their effectiveness is highly increased by embedding them in nature and supporting them with meditative practices and music experiences.

Remember, you are the medicine.

What curaTEDPSYchedelicEXPERIENCES

With our network of specialists and scientists, artists and experts, we offer legal and safe truffles containing natural psilocybin combined with meditative practices and immersive music experiences.

With the controlled cultivation of fungi in our Farmlab, we are developing Mycelium Spinoza; an affordable and effective organic mycelium containing natural psilocybin to support our transformational programs and experiences.

We have developed a series of programs, dedicated to a wide range of intentions, based on our I AM Model.

MAARTEN Van HUIJjstee

CHIEF EXECUTIVE
FOUNDER | MENTOR

Maarten has been teaching meditation and assisting people to make the journey inward for over a decade. With silence, plants and fungi he guides people towards natural wisdom. Maarten has founded Delight Yoga, Wisdom in Business, Return to Sender and The Loft. These initiatives function as a network of organisations united around one sole purpose: inspiring a more natural and conscious way of living. Early in his career, he worked for some large companies which allowed him to think big in terms of organisation and communication. Leading several creative agencies taught him the power of storytelling. Spinoza forms the pinnacle of a personal journey with plant medicine starting in 1999 and has grown into an intelligent network of therapists and scientists united in the mission to experience and experiment with the health potential of natural medicine and nature therapy. Maarten is a proud father to Philip, Alexander and Victoria, and dedicated husband to Anna.

AITO de LA rua

Chief Transformation
Founder | Mentor

From early in his life, Aito has been interested in connecting people to knowledge. In the year 2000, Aito co-created ‪Educ.ar, the first educational platform to connect public schools to the Internet, distributing content to both students and teachers in Argentina. Following the same principle, he co-founded Pure Design – the largest design event in Argentina – with the aim to connect artists and designers with a wider audience. Aito’s life took an adventurous turn as he ventured into the music industry, devoting almost a decade to the management of worldwide renowned artist Shakira.
After exploring several ancient and new practices, Aito joined the Nomade Hotel Group in 2017, which revolves around transformational experiences, music and wellbeing. Studying various ways of transformation combined with his interest in philosophy, he founded Spinoza, which merges his love for psychology, fungi-based therapies and sound as a healing modality.

PAUL berGER

CHIEF FINANCE AND OPERATIONS

Paul loves numbers. Not because of their looks but because he can see through them. Numbers have meaning and Paul aims to make them mean something positive out in the real world. Whether he’s out tour-skiing, mountain biking or langlaufing, Paul infuses anything around him with positive energy. After studying Business Economics, and a career as an investment director at an international private equity firm, Paul decided to move into healthcare, taking on the role of CFO at a Dutch healthcare platform. Besides work, he’s been active in a number of initiatives that aim for positive social impact, both in healthcare and sustainability. He’s a proud father of three; daughter Nanna and sons Tom and Cas, and happily married to Alexandra. Paul believes that the best decisions are not taken by cognitive notions, but by a deeper intuitive intelligence.

JANNeke KRIJgSMAN

Head of Experiences
Mentor | Teacher

Janneke loves guiding people to reconnect to their most authentic self. For many years she has been teaching meditation, yoga and breathwork, while also exploring the fields of plant medicine. For the last couple of years she has specialized in working 1 on 1, assisting people to find more clarity in the various challenges of life. Continuously inspired by her own inner journey, Janneke naturally invites people to discover their inner world, with all its depth and beauty. She has been with Spinoza from day one and has been essential in creating the Spinoza Programs. Janneke brings a peaceful and loving presence as well as her voice and music to each Spinoza Ceremony. She loves beautiful conversations, early morning dips in the sea, and sharing homemade food with her loved ones. She lives in The Hague and is a dedicated mother to her son Maas and daughter Ief.

LIV Stig

Content and
Social Director

Liv loves people. This is why she loves bringing out the best in them. When she started her career in the event industry, she became enchanted by the magic that engulfs people at festivals. She was mesmerized by how open-minded, loving and caring people become once they are relieved of stress and to-do lists, but instead are infused with a feeling of freedom, colourful surroundings and, most importantly; music. Liv was born and raised on a houseboat in the center of Amsterdam. During her travels to India and South America she discovered yoga and has been exploring the spiritual world ever since. At the moment, she also studies to become an Ayurveda Practitioner. Lately she has been focussing on communication and marketing for brands that aim to create positive impact. Increasingly conscious of the briefness of our existence here on Earth and our privileged lives in the West, Liv devotes her energy to projects that aim to help people or the planet – regardless of their scale. Liv is a proud mother to her baby girl Sol.
