If you feel like trying Ayahuasca, you found the right place ! I m going back every year to this same place not because I don’t want new adventures or discover new places , it is simply because it is THE perfect setting . You are in the jungle , surrounded by magically colored butterflies twice the size of the …

It is probably my first review ever! I am grateful to Silvia for her guidance and practical helpful techniques she taught us. Silvia has tremendous experience and once you meet her, you just know right away you are in the right hands. I’m now just a week over after my ayahuasca and I still feel that it is working its …

In the two weeks I’ve been back from a retreat at Spirit Vine I’ve faced friends (for meals, phone calls… asking what was it like?), family (mom, uncle…where have you been? why was your gate locked?), Foes (the seismic oil exploration crew that trespassed on my property while I was in Brazil after I refused to give them permission to …

We had a wonderful time…. at Spirit-Vine with you and the rest of the staff who took such good care of us. I want to thank you for being a terrific spiritual guide. The path and direction are difficult even with the help of the plant. What made it possible for me to have a successful retreat was the care …

Today is my last day at TheVine center for this time, I look forward to return many times. It was a great Magic experience, fulfilling, a communion of souls. An authentic religious experience, in the etymological sense of the word: religare, re-unite, come together. Mother Nature in full and total intimacy with my soul. Even the snake visit on my …

Thank you Silvia. What a profoundly eye opening experience. My perception of the world and myself has been altered. I look forward to returning hopefully sooner rather than later. No one should go through life without experiencing this. Please give Bianca a scratch for me.

DON’T LOOK ANY FURTHER!! Preamble When my husband asked me to come with him to an Ayuhasca Retreat in Brazil I was first quite reluctant. Brazilian Jungle? Me? At my age? Hmmm….. Traveling across the Atlantic to get eaten up by mosquitoes while I could enjoy myself in a Fife-Star resort somewhere in Europe? I thought my „wild years“ where …

I am entertaining the idea of returning…. At two weeks since I left Brazil, I am still living an enhanced existence. This is evident in all avenues of perception. Colors are brighter. Hearing is more acute. Exercise is more fun. My dreams are filled with developed characters involved in coherent actions, startlingly real. Emotions are peaked. Logical functioning and reasoning …

I lack words to describe the deep loving emotion I feel for the entire retreat experience. The spiritual impact is still with me and my wife says I have new light in my eyes. I definitely feel a positive change in my personality. I find it so much easier to let go, to accept things as they are. If I …

My time at spirit vine was very special. Sylvia is an incredible woman living her bliss in a green jungle paradise. Rohan, a volunteer, is also amazing because he is so patient and in tune with people around him. The two of them worked very well as a team, and I felt totally comfortable going to either of them for …

When I came to Spirit Vine Retreats the first time a few years ago, it was entirely beyond my expectations – closer to a dream come true for me. I think of my life now as before I came to Spirit Vine and after, as my life so completely changed. Hard to describe – I feel lighter, more clarity, more …

I just completed the December retreat at spirit vine and it was the most magical and productive Christmas gift I could’ve given myself. I have never felt so safe and comfortable as I did here.

I went to Spirit-Vine Retreat Center with one goal – to drink Ayahuasca. In the past I have battled drug and alcohol addiction. I was worried that the use of Ayahuasca would trigger problems with substances. Not only was that not a problem, but I saw myself in a new light. For the first time ever I saw what a …

A Nigerian Shaman advised me to go to Spirit Vine six years ago to embrace Mother Ayahuasca, with specific instructions to see Sylvia, I didn’t listen and went to Peru instead much to my regret. After numerous bad experience in other centres I finally went to Spirit Vine. I can not recommend this centre enough, it is most definitely the …

I can remember feeling strongly at the first ceremony at Spirit-Vine that this is what an Ayahuasca experience is supposed to be like. The setting for an Ayahuasca ceremony is very important in my opinion. The peaceful and loving environment provided by Silvia and the staff removed all sense of anxiety from the Ayahuasca experience. The individual attention paid to …

A journey in the Cosmic Counsciousness – May 2017 I was travelling Brazil deciding day by day what to do and I was reminded by chance that Brazil is the land of ayahuasca. I was interested in ayauhasca already since few years, when I heard beautiful stories on how you can reach deeper state of counsciousness, heal from your wrong …

People who’ve done it before all talk about the Plant’s weirdly healing powers. Healing in a psychic sense. The visions you get on the brew aren’t just the random oddness of mushrooms or LSD, they seem to articulate the key issues of your mind in electrifying detail. And most importantly for me, the power of the trip then continues working …

Spirit Vine retreat was a beautiful and deep experience in many ways and levels. The place is absolutely magical and calming – it’s easy to let go, be in the present moment, recognize and remove obstacles that diminish your true potential and essence to manifest. Silvia has plenty of tools to help people to balance and decode their mental programming. …

I so enjoyed getting to know you, and spending time with you, and am determined that it will reoccur. I think about Brazil and all my new friends there every day, and I know I will come back in the not too distant future. I really am looking forward to reconvening with Mother Ayahuasca. My experience this year participating in …

…Sometimes in life you need to do things that you’re not entirely comfortable with. The things that stretch your comfort zones and remind you of your vulnerabilities. I felt like this when I arrived at SpiritVine. I was nervous, with a heart full of confusion and desperate to reawaken from the spiritual slumber that had somehow crept upon me. The …

I searched for a very long time to find the perfect retreat (for me) to have my first Ayahuasca experience and after visiting SpiritVine I’m so very pleased that I did.

All of my life I felt like I was swimming against the current, or dancing with two left feet.

I find myself repeatedly coming back to the quote from Einstein, “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are …
