Sylvie Meier

About The Teacher

Primary Program Facilitator

Sylvie is a World citizen. Born in Europe and raised primarily in France near the sea, she has a true appreciation for the deep relationships we can cultivate with nature, both within and without, when we live in harmony and balance with the Earth. She has spent the last 15 years traveling the globe working with indigenous peoples learning their traditions, simple ways of life, and cultivating a deeper connection with our highest selves. Sylvie has called Pucallpa, Peru home for the last one and a half years. She has worked as an ayahuasca facilitator both in Peru and abroad for the past 5 years. Her relationship personally with Madre Ayahuasca is long standing and she has great reverence, respect and devotion to this ancient healing medicine and the indigenous people of the Amazon who keep her spirit through their songs, art and profound connection to the forest.  Sylvie offers many years of experience as a facilitator and guide. She is delighted to be in service to you and Pacha Mama as you step in to the deepest parts of yourself.


Sylvie is a graduate of East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon. She utilizes Structural Bodywork, Craniosacral Therapy, and many other complimentary forms of therapeutic massage, movement re-education, guided meditation and sound therapy. Integrating these therapies and the concept of mobilization of the spine for flowing balance and optimal energy as you awaken to your body, sourcing your innate healing and highest potential is the intention and objective of her practice. Sylvie’s experience focuses on the philosophy that when we find balance between movement and stability in our bodies - minds and spirits - we are subjected to fewer rules and restrictions in our lives and we are more adaptable to the ever changing world around us. Sylvie’s sessions are client-focused and driven by you and your specific needs. Working together to get you over the fence so that you can find your own way back in through the gate to your highest potential is her goal.


In 2015 she will complete her trainings working with Andean plants and  from the Quero tribe, high in the mountains of Peru and also with Kambo- frog medicine, from the deepest jungles of Brazil.


When Sylvie is not working with you in the Amazon she is in the forest with the herbs and bounty of the beautiful Northwest United States, spending time with friends and family in the kitchen, sitting in Vipassana, or traveling the globe seeking new experiences, cultures, and wisdom.


"I am here at this time, in this place- in the highest vibration of love for the purpose of my conscious awakening and yours, in any way spirit finds our hearts. My heart and my mind are open to you. May all beings be happy, peaceful and liberated."
