KarIMA El FilLALI
Karima El Fillali is known for her ethereal voice, enigmatic stage presence, and profoundly moving live performances. Her melodies are deeply inspired by the art of tarab – meaning ecstasy in Arabic – and by the Sahraoui singing techniques of her Sahara-dwelling forefathers. Her influences include Oum Kalthoum and Björk – but her own style is deeply rooted in Quranic recitation techniques.
Singer & Guitarist
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.
Viola & Electronics
Mara’s varied interests have compelled her to expand her ambitions as she has explored the ways in which classical music can be incorporated into electronic music. Her compositions integrate existing works from the contemporary canon with live electronics, creating a distinct sound.
MAARTEN Van HUIjstee
DJ & Host
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.

This Music Journey has been composed by highly talented musicians and pioneering sound engineers to follow the flow of a psychedelic experience.
Does this mean you need to take psychedelics to enjoy it? Absolutely not.
The music itself is designed to take you to magical places – whether you’re taking psychedelics or not. Also perfect with breathwork and a nice pot of tea.
On the 17th of December at 17:00 (CEST) we go live. If you’d like to join in later, you can do so, but please keep in mind that this Music Journey is designed to follow the arch of a psychedelic experience from start to end.
We cannot guarantee the quality of your experience when you tune in at a later moment or tune out before its conclusion. With meditation or breathwork it’s easier to be flexible with timing.
We will share with you how to best prepare for this Music Journey through digital content. We will send you an extensive psychedelic guide that explains everything you need to know about psychedelics. And, in tune with the holiday season, a number of gifts.
You will also receive suggestions to create a supportive ceremonial setting in the comfort of your own home.
Creating a safe and comfortable space is a crucial part of facilitating a deep experience – with or without the use of psychedelics.
Whether you’re considering joining with or without the use of psychedelics, your Journey starts with preparation and ends with integration. This is how your Journey will be most valuable and beneficial for you.
This is also a great opportunity to connect with the community with whom we will be gathering online on the 17th of December.
You can join by yourself or together with friends and family. Everyone can tune in, from anywhere on the planet. All you need is an internet connection, a sound system and an open heart.
Create a comfortable setting at home, lay back and let the natural flow of sound and music guide you.
We believe that creating a circle with friends and family is very valuable. Sharing moments of deep connection and support with each other can be a profoundly bonding experience.
More than sharing free Psychedelic Music Journeys, Spinoza is a close-knit community offering psychedelic workshops, forest walks, and music events coming up throughout the year.

The widespread philosophy of Dualism
has led us human beings to see every aspect of life as something separate.
Mind and body.
Humanity and nature.
Past and present.
You and me.
We suffer from this mindset of division – and the effects are getting clearer and more heartbreaking every day.
But when we understand that everything is connected, we can start healing this divide.
Some things can only be understood by experience. And more profoundly by a natural psychedelic experience.
On December 17th, musicians from around the world come together for a live performance of our psychedelic Music Journey.
And you are invited.
Join the journey back to nature.
Back to connection.
Back to peace.
Back to love.
Nature is calling us.
Deus sive Natura.
