Spirit Vine, Itacare, BA, Brazil
The beauty of Spirit Vine literally took my breath away. What Silvia Polivoy has created here with all of her hard work and dedication is incredible. Silvia is so full of love and caring for everybody at Spirit Vine – she is wise and intelligent, but also has a great sense of humour. I just want to hug her again as i’m writing this! I found it tough at times – you don’t always hear what you want to hear, but you definitely hear what you need to hear. Silvia and all at Spirit Vine have helped me so much to understand myself better and put me on the right path. And then there was TiO – so kind and helpful, and dedicated to putting his heart and soul into everything he does at Spirit Vine. Every time I make food now, I miss his happy little face standing there describing everything I am eating! 🙂 And also a special mention for Noor, such a happy, peaceful and kind soul and a great guy to have around. As for the other people taking part in the retreat – what an awesome, diverse group of people. We laughed, we cried, we healed together. I have so much love for everybody who was there, especially Fotini, who helped me more than she knows with her wise advice!
The ayahuasca was pure and strong, and took me to some incredible places. Ceremonies were sometimes spectacular, sometimes tough, sometimes funny, but always a great learning experience. I think everybody should experience ayahuasca and I can’t imagine there being any better place. You feel safe and well looked after at all times.
There is so much to say about Spirit Vine I could be here all day. The day trips to the stunning beach and waterfalls were amazing! And it was definitely good advice to stay on in Itacare for a few days after the retreat – absolutely loved it!
I would especially like to express my gratitude for the final daytime ceremony. I had no idea what to expect with this one, as ayahuasca is normally always at night time in the dark. I can only say WOW!! I was straight into that beautiful pond, with the bats chasing each other above my head, all of the stunning birds and insects coming to play, and every tree alive with wisdom. I actually felt like I was bathing in the Garden of Eden. Nothing will ever come close. If I could go back to re-live just that one day, I would be there in a heartbeat!
Thank you so much Silvia – your advice and wisdom to me were exactly what I needed and I feel like a stronger, better person now that my path is clearer. I hope to return in the near future to your beautiful paradise! Lots of Love to all of you beautiful people – Elaine xxx
