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 each of the participants was amazing. Silvia and the other facilitators helped me before and after each ceremony to explore what that experience meant to me. The meditation classes helped me reach a new level of inner peace and Higher Self realization. The food at the center was excellent. Being vegan I was worried about the menu I would have to choose from. The staff was made aware of my dietary needs and happily made special (delicious) dishes just for me. I wanted a safe place to share the Ayahuasca experience with my wife in a warm and loving environment. Silvia and the Spirit-Vine staff far exceeded all expectations we had. I would highly recommend Spirit-Vine retreats for anyone interested in exploring the wonders of Ayahuasca and their Higher Self. Thanks Silvia for sharing your paradise with us.
