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 strong and loving person I really am. Ayahuasca helped me see how wonderful my life is and how small my problems really are.
My Ayahuasca experience was just the tip of the iceberg. There were also many programs and presentations. While there I learned how to connect with my higher self, meditation techniques and FINALLY put some painful childhood events behind me as well.
The retreat Center is on the most beautiful and almost magical property. So green and full of life. From what I saw you and your staff are very in-tune with the plant and animal spirits and support a healthy ecology of the land. While at the Center I was fortunate to be with some wonderful people from other counties and walks of life. Without visiting the Center I would not have had the opportunity to share such meaningful events with our new friends.
I can’t wait to go back!!!
