Spirit Vine, Itacare, BA, Brazil
I started my journey with Ayahuasca about 10 years ago, initially I did a few retreats in Peru but did not find it very safe and also found it difficult to communicate and understand my journeys because the shamans are not easy to speak with. Then I went to Brazil which I found to be a safer environment. Since 2008 I have been going every year to the Spirit Vine center in Bahia which boasts beautiful and modern living accommodations while still providing the traditional jungle setting for the ceremonies in the Atlantic rain forest. The ceremony room is absolutely gorgeous with nets to protect from insects and at the same time letting you experience the full jungle atmosphere with the sounds of birds, insects and the rain. The center is just 5 minutes away from magnificent beaches along the Atlantic ocean. The weather here is also a lot nicer compared to the Amazon.
There are workshops in English to help everyone integrate the information received during the ceremonies which I find very helpful. I like most that the focus of the retreat is spiritual development and self exploration. They provide a very safe and comfortable environment to let you explore as deep as you desire. Over the years I have met many different types of people here – movie celebrities, writers, artists, physicists, biologists, lawyers, doctors, meditation gurus, techies and so many more, and each and every person has a powerful positive transformation no matter their prior beliefs and mindset. The magic that takes place here on every visit is what keeps me coming back year after year. It is truly a wonderful space and I highly recommend attending a retreat here!
