About Us

“our mission… to help us to evolve by recognising what we have become and how we have become this… by learning the value of true forgiveness, humbleness, and gratitude.
Only then can we truly awaken and make a change for ourselves and our future”.

Maq Umaqe

Maq Umaqe

Coming from humble beginnings Maq has always been an outsider to conformity and social rules that people set and adhere to. This step back as an outsider gave him an understanding of what we as humans will do and the lengths we will go to, to create and manifest our intentions.

Observing the quality of life and the state of society around him, he started to question the meaning of life, he felt somewhere there was more to life than this current existence, that there was a greater purpose for not just for himself but for us all.

There came a profound time in his 20’s when he surrendered to the universe and asked for help and guidance, this lead him to a path where he met his now late wife and plant medicine, both of which guide his path and ceremonial work to this day.

It has left him with the absolute belief and conviction of the power of consciousness, plant medicines, their technology, their ability to heal and… their magic!

“Plant medicines are the understated miracle workers that have always been here. They will heal us mentally, physically and spiritually, they will bring to us to both peace and the purpose that we search for, they will bring us healing cures that modern medicine promises and cannot deliver, they bring us the missing pieces of our souls that complete us.” – Maq Umaqe

Shamanic Couples

To find a male shamanic healer is relatively easy, to find a female healer can be much harder, but to find a shamanic couple is a much harder thing to find indeed.

The balance they have in daily life is reflected within ceremony, they are able to complement each other and respect each other’s roles and strengths within ceremony also, therefore there is a sacredness to medicine healing couples and to sit in such a ceremony can lead to a very healing and transformational process.

The woman is the direct representation of nature. She is the guardian of the entrance to mother earth, her greatest strength is her connection to the earth, with the plants and their spirits, the creator of life, and provider of nature. They will listen and resonate with their energy to her will and intention. She is a nourisher of love.

The man is the warrior, the protector, the hunter, he respects the order of things. He provides shelter, security, and harmony, one of his greatest powers is the connection with spirit animals, who he can call upon in ceremony to bring in their particular strength and energy.

When you find a medicine couple leading and directing a ceremony or ritual by working together, it completely changes the energy of the space and everything that’s happening inside the place, you sit in a safe place for the presence of man (the warrior), in a beautiful place, due to the delicacy of the woman (the guardian) in the decoration, the atmosphere of the enclosure, we can say that we are at home, a place where our mind, body, and spirit relaxes to start the journey in knowing who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

Testimonials

“Very grateful to be part of this retreat. ????
It’s brought me a certain level of consciousness that makes me want to weep with so much love and joy. What an amazing gift, humbled by it all.
Beautiful couple, Maq and Suraiya took really good care of everyone in our group. (Maq is a great communicator with a fine taste in music and Suraiya has loving, healing hands whom also creates the best ever vegan meals. ???)
Love, love, love!”

Asela – March 2019

“I have had the pleasure of participating in both ceremonies with Maq as provider, facilitator and integrator. He provides safe space in the sessions allowing the participants to work through their experiences with the power medicines at play in the human body. He work with the sacred plants with his own artistic style, knowledge and openness and I experienced that he can take part of the energy experienced within the participants ( such as me ) supporting me to explore and discover aspects of myself and the very nature of life. His multi cultural background, combination of humour and depth, understanding of music as vibrational energy and his drum playing makes a ceremony with Maq a true possibility to benefit . Both for the experienced etheongen traveller and individuals that is new to the medicines.
Harmony, humour , openness and the ability to move with the medicine in the manifested dimension of the participant and with the group as whole is a great gift he is allowing to flow through him. I hold him as a genuine lightworker.”

Allie – June 2020

“From the moment I interviewed with Maq and Suraiya prior to my first retreat with them a year ago my life began to transform rapidly. Through their loving guidance and pure intention when working with the medicine I began to trust myself, the universe and the process of doing the work.

Maq and Suraiya also guided me through a private ceremony while I was pregnant where I journeyed to meet myself as a child and then our baby. This experience was truly humbling and would not have been possible without the care and love they shared to hold the space and gently guide and help me see what the medicine was showing me.

They are both wonderful, loving souls on a journey to help others heal. Thank you Maq and Suraiya ???”

Their medicine is cooked with love and intention and is of the highest vibration. I have felt safe and protected through out the many ceremonies we have shared together.

Leighann – February 2019

“If you are ready to make all your dreams come true, or you need a helping had to put your past behind you then SuMaq Healing offers an extraordinary path to the brand new You.

I have had the privilege of knowing Maq and Suraiya for a couple of years now and have taken part in many ceremonies, working with and retreating with these unique individuals has changed my life and my path.

If it weren’t for their genuine love, guidance and limitless knowledge on plant medicines and their shear determination to welcome and embrace every soul they meet with open arms, then it would be just another ordinary retreat. However, there is nothing ordinary about these two, Maq and Suraiya go beyond the call of duty, with love, light, professionalism and humor being their main ingredients in every retreat.

There is no doubt in my mind that I would highly recommend SuMaq to anybody embarking on the their path to healing, to “Make a Change”
Our country remains their home, our hearts are full and our arms are open, we cannot wait for your return.
Thank you for your healing.”

Craig – February 2019

They take only small groups and Maq communicates beautifully in advance to smooth logistical details.

Despite have ceremonies within 100 miles of my home last fall, I chose to travel ½ way around the planet to sit with them. I think that speaks highly of respect I have for them!”

Megan Mitchell – February 2019

“I have so much love and respect for Maq and Suraiya. I was so lucky and blessed to somehow find them when I needed them most.

My life has completely changed since I attended the retreat with them. We were in an amazing location with a group a beautiful souls brought together. The ceremonies were full of love and incredibly beautiful.

I was supported the whole time. I feel like I found a family who understood me and supported me all the way. In such a short time I formed the most beautiful bond with everyone there and especially with Maq and Suraiya.

I can’t thank them enough for everything they do. They are an inspiration. Big Love.”

Alja – February 2019

They work intuitively with the medicine, and I felt very safe in their care. Will definitely be returning to work with them. ??”

My life has completely changed since I attended the retreat with them. We were in an amazing location with a group a beautiful souls brought together. The ceremonies were full of love and incredibly beautiful.

I was supported the whole time. I feel like I found a family who understood me and supported me all the way. In such a short time I formed the most beautiful bond with everyone there and especially with Maq and Suraiya.

I can’t thank them enough for everything they do. They are an inspiration. Big Love.”

“The 6 day retreat with you guys gave me a Magic journey beyond words. Not just during the cermonies, but the whole reatret was a transforming cermony. With beatyfull souls which i thankfully respect today within all my heart.”

Erik – February 2019

“Maq and Suraiya are golden lights that carry the purest intention for you and the group before, throughout and after your journey. You are in the safest hands to deeply surrender into your heart and know that you are protected, held and loved. Good food and great humour are the icing on the cake of the magical journeys that they bake. I would highly recommend them.”

Peta – February 2019

“Perhaps, in fact almost certainly, the most important five days of my life. Maq and Suraiya are both exceptional beings, and their love, dedication and generosity are unquestionable. You know you are in the most capable and safe hands and that your healing is always their utmost priority. I have worked with many people over the last twenty years, and now have no desire to work with anyone else. I cannot recommend SuMaq Healing enough.”

Will – February 2019

“I had my most life changing experience with Maq and Suraiya. I was kind of worried and skeptical because it was my first ceremony. But they made it so great! They are dedicated and treated every single person with all their love. The ceremony contained respect, compassion and humor?? And great food made by love! They choose places for their ceremonies that is comfortable and clean. The whole package makes it easy for me to recomand their ceremonies with all my heart??”

Irene – February 2019

“This is going to be a big journey – one that demands the most nurturing, personal, and honest environment available. There is no one more perfect to fulfill these roles and create such a space than Maq and Suraiya. Their work is truly a blessing to witness and I am grateful to them every. single. day.”

Mireya – February 2019

“To say that the experience with Maq and Suraiya was life changing would be an understatement. Words cannot describe the love, integrity and care these two beautiful souls put into their work. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have my first (but certainly not last) retreat with them and would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone. Love and peace to you all ??”

Alja – February 2019

“I did my second retreat with Suraiya and Maq last November (2018) and I cannot recommend them enough… very beautiful and challenging ceremonies, and exactly what I needed. Their relationship with the medicines is really quite something, I have undertaken ceremonies in Peru with other healers, and from these experiences I know that Suraiya and Maq are the genuine article. They work intuitively with the medicine, and I felt very safe in their care. Will definitely be returning to work with them. ??”

Dave – February 2019

A professional and protected space
Back up support – round the clock if needed.
Top quality medicine made themselves from start to end product
Humor and care along with great food and venues. You’re in good hands.”

Jeremy – February 2019

“I have been on 3 retreats with SuMaq, the last 2 private. I will recommend to try a private ceremony with maximun 5-6 people.
The support, trust and love you get from SuMaq is amazing and give you strength to work tru whatever you need!”
