Ayahuasca Meditation, Yoga and Art

During the ayahuasca retreats we run meditation, yoga and art workshops.

Ayahuasca Meditation and Regression

Since the Ayahuasca experience occurs in a modified state of consciousness, the spiritual insights, visions, symbolic messages and communications received during the ceremonies can be difficult to comprehend in the ordinary, day-to-day state of mind.

Meditation training may help to create a mental space for the new visions and insights to sit more comfortably until the mind has time to fully incorporate all of the information received.

Silvia usually facilitates workshops that are commonly called “regressions”; although in the unconscious mind time doesn’t exist and everything is happening right now. Participants can re visit past, future or parallel lives and eventually unblock resources to reconnect with the power within.


The ancient practice of yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline that leads one to a state of peace. Within the journey of yoga one may attain health benefits and spiritual awareness.

The class is composed of pranayama (breathing exercises), asana (poses), mudra (energetic seals) and meditation. The state of presence attained through yoga allows the practitioner to feel calm, relaxed and confident.

We  have group yoga classes included in the retreat, that are gentle and easy, with a beautiful flowing style. It is a great introduction for beginners and deep relaxation for those with more experience.

If someone additionally would like private yoga classes, you can request this service.


Art is one of the most powerful forms of expressing the spiritual realities and visions of ayahuasca. It can take participants on a journey of art as expression of spirit.

UK, US People in Brazil Yoga CenterThere will be several art sessions during the retreat. Participants can look forward to discovering hidden resources and skills in visionary practices, expressing the divine through art and dynamic meditation.

We believe everyone is an artist and ayahuasca inspires the artist within to emerge. No prior artistic experience is required.

For many of our retreats, the late Peruvian shaman-artist Pablo Amaringo, guided our participants  in the expression of their own symbolic language as a tool for higher-self awareness and inter-dimensional communication.

We encourage participants to bring art supplies that they would normally feel comfortable using. If you are a beginner then bring some drawing quality paper, pencils for sketching and coloring, crayons and water colors. A medium sized sketch book would be ideal.

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.
