You’d be hard pressed to find a safer, more organized, and more effective space for the respectful and mindful use of Ayahuasca anywhere else in the world.

The well planned and considered retreat takes place in a somewhat remote section of Atlantic Forest in Brazil’s breathtaking coastal state of Bahia. Set among a small cluster of rustic but comfortable bungalows is a pond for swimming next to a large and authentic Ayahuasca ceremony room with attached bathrooms. The undisturbed beauty of the nature on the piece of land where the ceremonies take place yields plants, insects, and animals that combine to show guests an experience of Brazilian countryside you would normally have to pay for a tour through the jungle to have access to.

Not only does Silvia and her wise and incredible staff have a deep respect for both the participants as well as the plant medicine itself, but they all have extensive personal, firsthand experience with this profound and potentially life altering substance. This generates an environment of professionalism, safety, and the ability to meaningfully integrate your experiences. Typically I did this through either the therapeutic workshops, art therapies, yoga, and full body muscle relaxation massages, or just by chatting with Silvia, her fellow staff facilitators Ti-O or Nur, as well as the other retreat participants over the delicious food prepared 3 times a day by a talented kitchen staff.

I could not have anticipated the quality and standard of professionalism shown by the facilitators on this retreat and was constantly assured that I had absolutely made the right choice in coming here. I could not recommend more highly and would without question both personally recommend to friends as well as seriously consider coming back.

Thanks for everything, and may our paths cross again in the future.
