11 Day Ayahuasca Retreat

Itacare BeachWe introduce our 11 day Ayahuasca retreat which includes 5 ayahuasca ceremonies and a range of other activities. The retreat is meticulously designed to give participants a balanced experience and the opportunity to go even deeper to connect with their higher self, to align with their essence and purpose, and to connect with nature.

Ayahuasca Retreat Participants

The retreats include workshops for spiritual development that are carefully developed by Silvia Polivoy from her experience in psychotherapy, shamanism, and a range of other spiritual practices. These workshops give participants an immersive experience in spiritual development and provide tools that help them to go deeper during the ayahuasca experience as well as to continue evolving after the retreat. The various activities are designed to integrate all the information and insights coming from the Ayahuasca ceremony experience as well as insights received during the week in workshops, sharing sessions, and group discussions.

The five ceremonies will be divided between night-time ceremonies and day-time ceremonies. Depending on the group dynamic, we will have either three night-time + two daytime ayahuasca ceremonies, or four night-time + one daytime ayahuasca ceremony. 

Our ceremonies are conducted in a beautiful purpose-built ceremony room in the jungle. In this room we are protected from insects by mosquito nets, and outside, the jungle orchestra with the frogs, animals, and insects is the perfect backdrop to a period of deep spiritual discovery. Music is carefully chosen for the ceremony from different parts of the world. It is a tool that supports, triggers and guides the participant in their spiritual journey with the Ayahuasca vine.

Spirit Vine Retreat Center PondDuring the daytime ceremony, we have a common group intention to connect with nature, and each participant also brings their personal intention. During the ceremony, if the participants feel stable and capable, they can go walk around the gardens, they can swim and float in the natural pond, and they can also spend time in hammocks or watch the tapestries in our massage room. We always have a facilitator in the ceremony room and outside in the area where the participants can walk to ensure safety and provide support when required.

Please note that the plant ceremonies are always optional; while it is recommended, it is not essential that participants attend all of the activities. Read more about our ayahuasca ceremonies.

Spirit Vine Retreat Participants

Many of our participants have spoken about their favorite aspects and the lessons they learned during their visit to the Spirit Vine Center. You can watch their ayahuasca retreat testimonials.

The workshops are designed to teach tools to participants to help prepare for the ayahuasca experience and to apply the proper techniques to understand the purpose and spiritually heal past situations that may have caused blockages. In this way the participant has the ability to use their own power and recover pieces of their soul that were fragmented and trapped in this situation and were causing repetitive or unproductive behaviors in the present.

The workshops may include different subjects such as:

  • Realigning with your Higher Self
  • Meeting your Inner Child
  • Past Life Regression
  • Future Life Progression
  • Soul Retrieval
  • Energy Extraction
  • Spirit Releasement
  • Parallel Realities
  • Visionary Art Explorations
  • Yoga sessions
  • Guided meditations/visualizations
  • Group Sharing

Spirit Vine COVID-19 Update

Last Updated: 9th August 2022

We have established guidelines to ensure that we provide the maximum amount of safety to all participants who attend the retreats.

We are following the guidelines provided by the Brazilian government which you can find below and have added some necessary precautions suitable for the retreats.

In the Itacare area, where we are located, there are very low number of COVID cases.

We will update this section when new information is available.
Content listed here is subject to change.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Brazilian Government Recommendations for COVID-19

The current guidelines from the Brazilian government state that anyone who wants to enter Brazil must present a Covid vaccine certificate. You do not need to take any other vaccines to enter Brazil. These guidelines may change in the future.

Travelers must also fill out an affidavit 24 hours before departure acknowledging the health measures that must be complied with during the period that they will remain in the country. You can find the affidavit here.

Prior to leaving Brazil, depending on the requirements of your destination country, you may be required to present an RT-PCR or Antigen test. If you need a PCR test we recommend you to budget the required time of 6 hours to take the test and get the results at Sao Paulo Guarulhos airport. Antigen test can be taken in the town of Itacare near our center before you go to the airport or at the airport in Sao Paulo.

Please note that Itacare and Ilheus do not have RT-PCR testing centers.

Spirit Vine Guidelines for COVID-19

We require that vaccination must be done at least 2 months prior to drinking ayahuasca. This is for the safety of participants to make sure the vaccine doesn’t have any reaction with the ingestion of ayahuasca. 

We also require all visitors to provide a valid Covid-19 test prior to entering the Center. The Antigen test is only valid for 24 hours and PCR test is only valid for 72 hours. A valid negative test result must be sent by email prior to entering the Center.
