Spirit Vine, Itacare, BA, Brazil
Spiritvine retreat was really something special. It took me 4 years to get the courage to do this and believe me I spent a long time researching lots of places. Spiritvine is a great place to do your first ceremony. You are in the rainforest, but are close to a tourist town in Bahia, you have wifi, a comfy bed, amazing food, English language and Silvia, a trained psychiatrist who is there to help you through your journey. You feel safe- which is really important when you are so far from home. What Silvia brings is a beautiful habitat, help assimilating what was experienced and the most incredible playlist to journey to. It’s really special. The experience is nothing short of epic. The medicine works in an amazing way and you get exactly what you need for that moment. In our group (which was such a lovely mix of people) more than half had dark journeys. What I mean by that is that they went to places they needed to to be able to understand who they are and to release things from the past. I tell you this just so you understand that it can be hard work – but with immeasurable benefits. You have to be ready to do this. I read somewhere that one ceremony is the equivalent of meditating for 10 years. For me, it felt even more powerful than that. Like I was getting plugged into the core of the universe and fully understanding the simplicity and complexity of everything. There is so much more I could write (be sure to bring a journal as you’ll want to record the incredible insights that the medicine shares with you). It’s been 6 months since I was there and I really can say that it’s a life changing experience. My outlook (and inlook) is very different now and I feel I have a much better understanding of energy and a new reverence for the majesty of the plant world and in particular plant medicine. Very grateful for the amazing work that Silvia does. This is an unmissable experience.
