Spirit Vine is the “home of ayahuasca”, created with the dedicated purpose to host ayahuasca retreats in Brazil. Every aspect of the retreat is well considered and planned for you to achieve a state of harmony. Every month we receive people from all over the world who feel the call of the jungle. You will meet other like-minded individuals interested in personal development and aligning with their essence.
In 1996 Silvia hosted her first ayahuasca retreat in Peru and after a few retreats she felt the call to move to Brazil. Following this calling she, together with Zoe Seven, co-founded TheVine center, in the midst of the beautiful Atlantic Rainforest, just minutes away from breath-taking beaches of the Atlantic ocean, near the serene surf-town Itacare in Bahia, Brazil.
We have 9 day and 11 day ayahuasca retreat programs throughout the year during which the ayahuasca ceremonies are every other night and in between there are workshops and other activities to integrate your experiences and insights. There is also ample free time to reflect, to enjoy the beauty of the jungle, to visit the gorgeous beaches, and just to relax, let go, and experience the pure bliss of being present. We look forward to welcoming you to this sacred wonderland.
Our ceremonies take place at night in darkness which is the traditional practice of ayahuasca ceremonies in Peru. During our 9 day retreat we also have a daytime ceremony where our intention is to connect with nature and learn from it’s infinite wisdom.
We facilitate a safe and comfortable space so you can let go and dive deep into your personal experience connecting with your essence and higher self. The music we use during ceremonies help bring to the awareness what we need to face.
We grow our own organic ayahuasca plants and harvest them in a sustainable manner. Our brew is prepared from the chacruna plant and the caapi vine only (no additives).
