I took part in the October 2019 retreat at Lotus Vine. It was my first experience working with plant medicine, and it surpassed my high expectations, both in terms of how the retreat was organised and how much my life has improved since (I’m writing this 4 weeks after the last ceremony).
The team leading the retreat (Spring, Janeth, Yugo and Maestro Adriano) are professional, experienced and very caring. They looked after us at all times, from both spiritual and practical perspectives. Spring’s background as an established Dharma teacher helped her to guide us, while Yugo and Janeth, both gentle and caring facilitators, supported Spring and Maestro Adriano both during and in between ceremonies. The location, Puma Rinri, is very comfortable – clean rooms, healthy food, very hot showers, wifi, etc – which certainly helped!
I can’t really tell you in detail how much my life has improved thanks to Mother Ayahuasca in a review – I assume that if you’re reading this you’re familiar with the incredible potential of this plant medicine. If you’re considering attending a retreat, Lotus Vine will be a perfect location, especially if you have a background in Buddhism or meditation, as they fuse two traditions together.
