I let a couple weeks pass after the retreat to write my review. Ready?? Let's go! Why Spirit Vine. I didn't find this center online. I have a friend who's been to this center twice before and she spoke highly about it. When I found out that Silvia who created this sacred healing environment is a psychologist right away I knew that Spirit Vine is a place for me. I have had many ayahuasca ceremonies in the past 6 years with various tribes in different countries where I was just given the medicine without a lot of explanations and integration techniques. The approach Silvia uses in her center is different and it was more productive for me. There were workshops at the center that gave me tools to work with during the ceremonies. So Before each ceremony I was prepared. I loved the shadow workshop very much which helped me to identify one of the faces of my dark side and work through it. Ti0 did a great workshop on energy where he gave us tools on how to elevate our consciousness and be a better version of ourselves. We even watched movies there :) The center is located not too far from a beautiful coastal town of Itacaré in the Atlantic forest. The land is stunning. There is a pond that I enjoyed every day, many beautiful plants, birds, monkeys. It's a true paradise. There's an actual chef Thiago (obrigada from the bottom of my heart) who creates art with food. We literally ate art every single day there. The accommodations were lovely and sparkly clean. I stayed in dorms with two more guests and it was perfect. There was yoga and massages available which helped me to connect better with my body. We took a few trips to the stunning beaches in the area and a waterfall. Everyone who works at the center is super friendly and attentive. We were a group of 15 and it was perfect. Not too many people, not too little. We all have become one big family by the end of the retreat. I came out of this experience with a bunch of friends and a lot of knowledge. I have struggled all my life with the lack of self-love. At the retreat I was finally able to understand how to love and accept myself unconditionally. I felt very supported and loved by everyone there which definitely enhanced my experience and helped me to heal. Now I'm going through an integration process using all the tools I received during my retreat. What I want to say is even if you don't want to drink the medicine you can still come and enjoy the healing energy in the retreat. It's much more than ayahuasca. I'll definitely be back to do more work. Thank you Silvia and Ti0 and everyone who served us and helped us on our healing journey in Spirit Vine. I feel abundance of gratitude 🙏 So blessed to have met you. Warm hugs, until next time. Com amor, Svetlana

The adventure started in Itacare, a small beautiful town in Bahia region that was recommended by the Spirit Vine before and after the retreat. It was very helpful from the hosts' side to think beforehand about small details like transportation to and from, requirements, etc. Food was awesome prepared by the top creative vegan chef Tiago. The location of the retreat center was superb. I especially enjoyed the pond. It is definitely sacred. Big thanks to the hosts, Silvia and Tio, for been so loving and caring. Silvia's soft but powerful nature and her vast experience made the ceremonies flow in a natural way. And Tio's 'omnipresence' was very comforting during the ceremonies. It was my first time to experience ayahuasca ceremony and I felt very anxious, especially for the first time, and at times even thinking why did I come at all. But in the end, I'm very happy that I did. It felt like the years of therapy in only 10 days. I was also fortunate to come with my husband and it helped us to actually connect even more. The most powerful experience of the ceremonies was connection to nature like never before where you feel the unity with everyone and everything. It was just amazing. There were 15 participants (both first timers and more "experienced" ones) which at first seemed like a lot, but it turned out that each one was such a precious addition to the group that added his/her part to the healing and connection of everyone that I wouldn't want to experience it otherwise. At the end, I just want to enunciate that no words can describe the journey, and it is so unique that you just have to come and experience it for yourself:)

If you are here reading this review, go to Spirit Vine. I wanted to wait a little while to integrate my experience before writing this review. I could not wait any longer. The tools, techniques, and advice given at Spirit Vine are far above anything you will ever receive anywhere else. I have experienced OCD since I was little and felt stuck in every aspect of the word. I did not know what were my own thoughts and feelings and what were not. I can confidently say that is not the case anymore. Here at Spirit Vine YOU are the one that has to put in the work and believe you will get better. I did not fully believe until I came here. It empowers you to deal with your own issues anytime and in anyway they pop up in your life. I faced fear, sat with uncertainty, and encountered moments of my past and glimpses of my future. I will never forget this experience and I cannot wait to go back for more healing. You are in the safest hands with Silvia and Ti 0. I understood the full extent of their love and care after the first ceremony. They truly do know what is best for you regarding dose and areas to focus on within ceremony. The group aspect positively adds to the experience and I have made friends that I will keep for life. We are all in this together. The energy on site is captivating. Please Go. And eat some of the delicious food from Thiago while you’re at it :)

It was my first experience doing ayahuasca and I wanted somewhere I can feel safe. Silvia and Ti O are amazing people and they made the entire experience for all of us great. Spirit Vine is located in a beautiful property which adds to the experience. The group size was 15 but by day 3, we bonded and were able to spend time together like a family. There was time for us to reflect and journal our thoughts, and the sharing after each ceremony made us learn from one another and grow as individuals. Next time I come back, I will like to take time off after the retreat to spend in Itacare.

Second time here. It only got better. It was the most important and life- transforming week of my life. The group was larger this time but the bonding was perhaps even stronger. You’ve probably read the stories about the power of ayahuasca. It’s even more powerful than you can imagine. And this is absolutely the place to experience it. With the love and safety of the very special retreat that Silvia has created here, and the wisdom and knowledge that Ti0 willingly shares, this is the most spectacular place in the universe to learn and discover and heal and grow. Thank you again Silvia and Ti0. See you again soon.
