Ayahuasca Integration and Spiritual Counseling

Silvia Polivoy has integrated a variety of techniques, including “claircognizance” – when the higher self or spirit guides ‘put’ information (in the form of thought) into her mind. It can be a gut feeling or a whole body of information that is ‘downloaded’ into the mind or it can be in the form of smaller insights about people and situations here and there.

spiritual practices with ayahuasca

She works predominantly in the realms of inner child core blockage transmutation, soul retrieval, past life regressionsspirit releasement, dream work and reconnection with our inner power.

Although her background is in Clinical Psychotherapy, she no longer offers this service. Her work now is spiritual in nature.

If you are a former participant of our Ayahuasca retreatsyou can book a personal online spiritual counseling session with Silvia.

To book a private consultation in English, Spanish or Portuguese, please send an email to Silvia.

Ayahuasca Integration and Group Sharing

The day after the spiritual workshops and each ayahuasca ceremony, we gather to share our main insights with the group. We create a safe, non-judgmental space where people feel comfortable to openly talk about their feelings. The group dynamic is very powerful because the group represents a small world where each person has a unique background.

Many times listening to another participant sharing their story helps to remember a personal experience realizing how we are all connected in unexpected ways. One of the most important benefits of group sharing is to work in our unconscious projections and archetypes. Many times a group member may represent a family member creating an opportunity to realize that the person is only a mirror of our own shadow.

You can see videos and testimonials of people expressing how they felt and what they learned during the group sharing and the workshops.

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.
