The uniqueness of Spirit Vine are the workshops conducted by Silvia. This has been one of the most powerful tools that give participants extra confidence going into the ceremonies. With over 25 years of experience in a variety of disciplines such as trans-personal psychology, modified states of consciousness, visualization exercises, sacred plants, shamanism, and a multitude of other practices, each workshop is a unique integration of techniques that Silvia has developed. Some of the topics for the workshops include Inner Child Integration, Soul Retrieval, Spirit Releasement, Life Script Planning, Past Life Regression.
A very common bad habit is to passively wait for the change to come from the outside, like children without resources. To recover the power within means that each participant will learn how to unblock their resources and become proactive in their own spiritual development and integration. The techniques taught in these workshops can and should be used to continue your personal growth if you choose to go deeper in your everyday life.
Depending on the interests of the group, Silvia dynamically chooses the workshops for each retreat. That’s why it is very important to provide accurate information when you fill out the application form, to help her select the best techniques for a particular group of people. Participants can learn to reconnect with their own power, to discover the source of traumas and the resulting pattern of behavior, to heal the wounds after a traumatic experience, to clean their aura and to open the door to connect with parallel realities, the invisible world and it’s inhabitants.
Why does a group of people from different parts of the world coincide in a retreat? Because it is not a coincidence. Jung called this synchronicity — “events are meaningful coincidences if they occur with no causal relationship yet seem to be meaningfully related”. The members of the group are learning from each other and during the course of the retreat it is very common to discover deeper connections between participants. The group bonds are very important as a source of support and knowledge for the whole retreat since the group is a representation of the outside world.
Sometimes people feel instant sympathy or rejection towards certain members, that’s why part of our group work consists in discovering how “people can project undesirable feelings or emotions onto someone else, rather than admitting to or dealing with the unwanted feelings”. If the person doesn’t realize this, they will continue projecting their undesired feelings onto others, when the real enemy is within them. So we teach how to integrate this disconnected feeling into our consciousness within a loving and supportive space. The result of integrating unconscious feelings will improve our relationships. Restlessness is transformed into peace, and the energy that was used to project, now will be channeled for more productive endeavors.
