I can honestly say that I have never experienced a retreat like Spirit Vine. In short, it is very high quality in all aspects and you should have no qualms about attending a retreat in the resort. Here some more details: Aya experience: The guides (Sylvia and Rohan) are very experienced, professional, intuitive and intelligent. I found that Sylvia’s professional training combined with a deep pool of personal experience with the plant made her the ideal guide. She can find a connection and mode of communication with very different personality types and does a fantastic job sensing limits and helping you feel safe. The tea itself is very high quality and safe as it production is supervised end to end. Housing: Gorgeous bungalows, clean showers and bathrooms, comfortable. Picturesque views. Really nothing to be desired. And the location, surrounded by forest, nature, green everywhere. A lagoon that you can swim in. Really unbelievable. Food: Delicious breakfast and healthy, hearty meals. Prepared to be vegetarian, no added sugar and salt. The retreat is not only a special experience for the mind, but also a cleanse for the body. Overall: Honestly, this is the place to go if you are serious about spiritual development but also dont mind a bit of comfort ???? Cannot recommend it more, really a special place.
