About This Center

Healing People To Heal The Planet

Beholding, even surrendering, to the reality of truth is an experience from which to begin. A core awareness from which to extend trust and meet responsibility. Attention to this core, naturally, reaches out to relationships, homes, communities, and the planet.

Aya de La Vid combines Quechua & Spanish terms. Aya is Quechua for... spirit, and de La Vid is Spanish for... of the Vine.

Spirt of The Vine, referring to the legendary brew Ayahuasca.

Aya de La Vid’s Mission Statement

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
