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 closed.”
I am still taken with the profound sense of gratitude I feel towards all participants in the December 2011 retreat. Most obviously to Sylvia as what has been accomplished at TheVine Center is astounding. I respectfully disagree with how the website identifies “The Temple” as where the ceremonies take place. I view all of TheVine Center as a Temple, complete with a spectacular Ceremony Hall. As I walked around, swam in the lagoon and shared wonderful meals with fellow travelers I was constantly struck with how it was all sacred ground. Complimented by sacred music during the ceremonies – hats off again to the “DJ”!

It was a privilege to spend time with each of you and I truly hope to see you all again.

Sylvia and Alistair are incredibly gifted facilitators whose messages resonate. The amount of safety, comfort, […]
People who’ve done it before all talk about the Plant’s weirdly healing powers. Healing in a psychic sense.

And most importantly for me, the power of the trip then continues working […]
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 […]
