Spirit Vine, Itacare, BA, Brazil
It’s just over a month since I attended the Spirit Vine retreat and I am really seeing the benefits in my attitude and life. I arrived with minimal experience with psychedelics. I am also on pretty far on the rational, skeptical, not-so-spiritual end of the spectrum, so, I really didn’t know what to expect and I did have some difficult experiences during the ceremonies. However, the insights I gained have been very powerful. These were not necessarily new realizations, but I felt them in a new, more visceral way. I also really appreciated the structure of the retreat, which is a mix of the ayahuasca traditions and psychotherapy (based on Silvia’s background as a psychotherapist). The experience with the group and hearing everyone’s vulnerabilities and experiences was also very powerful and humbling. The setting and facilitators are really perfect for an introduction to this kind of work. I think this is one step on a journey, but a very powerful and enlightening step.
