Silvia is a licensed clinical psychologist. She co-founded the Spirit Vine Retreat Center, a space created to hold retreats for those interested in spiritual pursuits. She received her license in clinical psychology in 1983 and had a private practice in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for 20 years until she began to feel the need to make a transition from studying and healing the mind to exploring the worlds of spirit.
I just completed the December retreat at spirit vine and it was the most magical and productive Christmas gift I could’ve given myself. I have never felt so safe and comfortable as I did here. The way the retreat and ceremonies were conducted allowed me and all the other wonderful group members to open up completely and transform the dark parts within to beautiful light and color. The expert guidance of the shamaness Silvia helped me and many other people break very difficult patterns that had been causing pain and suffering. I will be definitely come back to continue my journey of self-discovery.
Apart from the workshops and ceremonies, everything else was also beautiful. The food, the bungalow, the swimming pond, the beaches and the jungle-spectacular and breath-taking. Highly recommend to anyone who feels the call to ayahuasca!
My experiences at Spirit-Vine Retreats have far surpassed my expectations and all of my previous ayahuasca experiences. Silvia is a gifted shaman and teacher, and she has created a jungle paradise for seekers wishing to commune with the spirit of ayahuasca. She coaches participants on how to actively engage in a dialogue with the spirit and express their needs and intentions. Her counsel is steady and comforting during ceremonies and sessions, and participants receive strength and support from the group dynamic.
Silvia’s patience and the personal attention she gives to each participant creates a safe setting, and the beautiful environment could not be more perfect. The health benefits I have received from ayahuasca are immeasurable, and I am profoundly grateful. I wholeheartedly recommend Spirit-Vine Retreats to anyone contemplating an ayahuasca journey.
