Spirit Vine, Itacare, BA, Brazil
This is a review of my first retreat at Spirit vine in Brazil after 9 retreats in the Peruvian Amazon at different centers.
For many years I thought that Peru was the way to go for ayahuasca but after my experience at Spirit vine I am certain this is where I will go back every single time. It was the most serene and divine experience I have had in my entire life! The days I spent here with the angel Silvia taught me what it means to live with an open heart, to live with compassion and to love unconditionally. The care and compassion with which she facilitates the entire retreat experience opens up the portal for the most profound transformation.
Silvia conducts workshops where she teaches very powerful techniques to optimize the experience and to integrate the lessons into daily life. These techniques are not just for the retreat, they can be used throughout life to deal with any type of challenging situation. Silvia exemplifies what it means to live the path unlike most of the facilitators I’ve met earlier who just talk about it but are completely incoherent with their actions.
Most of the experiences I’ve had in Peru are a theater and run as a business where money is given far more importance than learning from the plant. The tourism in Peru has also attracted a lot of bad energy, I felt much safer in Brazil where ayahuasca is still respected as a sacrament. The overall energy is much cleaner and conducive to the experience.
The natural beauty of the center, the gardens, the natural swimming pond, the bungalows, the temple space, the massages and the scrumptious food enhances the entire experience and gives a feeling of safety and comfort which helps to surrender to the divine magic of this sacred plant. I highly recommend the experience here! Best wishes to all that embark on this journey 🙂
