I can totally recommend Silvias place, its a great spot if you want to experience ayahuasca and enjoy a beautiful landscape . Im writing this review 1 year after having been there as I still make progress on what I learned during the ayahuasca ceremonies. Silvia and her team provide a great setting to experience this and especially the workshops in between the ceremonies are very helpful to work on inner stuff that has accumulated over the years. Even 1 year after Im still making progress on not judging people if they have a different opinion than me and just letting them be as they are, just to name one example where ayahuasca can help. Highly recommended and 5 stars.
I watched ‘The reality of truth’ last year. I immediately felt a calling. Not heard about Aya before this. I stumbled across Spirit Vine. I looked at Silvia’s credentials & trip advisor reviews & was convinced. I would like to thank the facilitators, participants & staff who made the experience so enriching. I received much warmth & love from everyone & answers to questions I was not even looking for & all the dots joined up for me by the time the retreat was over. Being my first visit to Brazil, I was anxious. I called the facilitators who answered my queries including taxi pickup. Spirit Vine is heaven on earth & magical. Silvia has achieved something out of this world. Attention to detail into everything is second to none, including food, cleanliness, timings, ceremonies & activities. The third ceremony although challenging, provided me with many answers, including showing me my limiting belief patterns. On reflection, I would say, don’t try & imagine what to expect. Go with the flow. Everyone’s experience is different & don’t negatively compare yours with others. Write things down. Have faith. Silvia appears to have formulated the perfect process & it seems to work in some magical way. Talk to the facilitators. They can ensure you get most out of it. Group sessions felt safe in which to open up, where I learnt more about myself & others. Workshops left me with an entirely new way of thinking. I have learnt how better to handle challenging situations in life. Thank you!!! …
How can i describe our time at Spirit Vine? So much to stay, yet the right words cannot describe the experience! Going to Spirit Vine was without a doubt the best thing I've ever done. The experience, the growth, the journey were all incredible - all aided by the beautiful Silvia, Noor and Tio. The place itself is peaceful magical, stunning. A Tropical Garden of Eden. The perfect backdrop for your Ayahuasca experience. A plus is its location to stunning some of the most stunning beaches and Itacare! And of course the ceremonies themselves were all incredible in their own ways - set in a safe and cosy setting. I can't think of a better place to experience mother aya! I will be back :) Petra
It is almost a month since my journey to Spirit Vine and I continue to feel the effects. Everything about the center and environment is glorious. The retreat is run with impeccable attention to every detail for your spiritual and psychological growth. I can’t recommend it enough if you are looking for a profound and transformative experience — rooting out old patterns and empowering your self. I look forward to returning for more healing and love.
Amazing healing experience! Silvia and Tio are very experienced educators and facilitators. They complimented each other and were always available to the retreatants. I have left the retreat with the tools I leaned from the workshops which I use almost daily. The retreat also provides yoga classes and massages every other day. The center is very well maintained with daily housekeeping and delicious nutritional, appropriate for the occasion meals. They accommodate dietary restrictions. To top it off I visited the most beautiful beaches located in close proximity from the center. Heaven on Earth!
