Spirit Vine, Itacare, BA, Brazil
I’ve already tried ayahuasca with many shamans and at many places. Spirit Vine is one of the most professional retreat centers that is currently available.
Most important is that the brew that they offer is the strongest and the purest that I have ever tried. They only use the ayahuasca vine and the chakruna leaf they don’t add anything else. It shows how strong the brew is that they are very serious about giving pariticpants the exact amounts (they measure it for each participants in milliliters)
Inbetween the ceremonies there are workshops that are extremely useful becuase they teach people how to use the ayahuasca experienc so that it really becomes a healing process.
The trajectory of the retreat is great and the whole program is well put together. As a praciticing psychologist who works with groups I can tell that the way that they work with people is very professional.
The venue is beautiful and it feels more like staying in a five star hotel then in a retreat center. The meals are delicious (which is already a great compliment since during the retreat they stick to the traditional ayahuasca diet) and there is always a huge variety of different kind of dishes. Everything is organic, gluten free and made right there on the spot. Many times they use vegetables and fruits from their own garden.
I have to admit that the place is expensive so it’s definitely not for people who have limited resources, but keep in mind that the quality of the retreat is extremely high, so I would say that every penny that I spent on it was worth it.
