It is very difficult to know where to begin with this review. I find so much of what I want to say in the words I have seen written here by others…
I had done zero research and I had no desire to try ayahuasca about two or three months ago.
My friend was sitting at her computer on a weekend away and announced she had finally booked her trip to Spirit Vine. I looked over at her. I saw the website and I saw and heard Sylvia talking in a video. I immediately knew all I needed to know. It was very obvious to me that this woman was sharp and that I wanted to go and see her, never mind any thing about ayahuasca. The insight she had was so apparent and I knew that I wanted to be there. I booked that night and my experience was life changing. Literally a change of life.

I knew I had wanted to change. I had even known some of what I needed to do to change. I was just not able to do it. It was a hurdle I was not able to jump. I had climbed over many others before – but I had hit a wall. What I needed was the space. The peace. The love. The knowledge. The sounds. The feelings. The tools. The clarity. The Sylvia. The Rohan. The time. The friends. The beach. The coconuts. The birds. The bats. The beauty. The music. The words. The food. The talks. THE SENSE. The skills. The experience. The time of my life.

All these things and so much more I found at Spirit Vine. And I have managed to bring bits of these home with me. After nervously thinking when I set off to go there; that I may even end up calling home and saying “pack my things up, I’m not coming back!”, I managed to prepare myself for home while there, to give myself the tools I would need when I got back and I created a new space in my life for my life.

I remind myself now that Spirit Vine is always there and going back feels like the most natural thing to me and something I am extremely (understatement!) excited for. The desperate need for change is gone. I would return to continue my journey with myself and to reconnect with Sylvia, Rohan and friends I made and not out of the desperate and necessary feeling to change which I first arrived with. I will return for myself. Simply because I love it.

Spirit Vine changed my life. While there I managed to understand what life is and what my life is and I managed to finally click some of the most important pieces of my life into place. I am so excited to be awake in my own life. Caring for and about myself.

Excited for myself.

Thank you Sylvia and thank you Rohan. Thank you to everyone who makes that wonderful space happen and exist. Please never stop. The importance of this space is not able to be put into words.

See you soon!
“One hour!”
