Silvia Polivoy Bio
I’m Silvia Polivoy, a licensed clinical psychologist.
In 2004, I co-founded Thevine Spiritual Center, a space created to hold retreats for those interested in spiritual pursuits.
I have been involved in investigating modified states of consciousness for over twenty years. I have carried out field research in Mexico with Mazatec shamans, as well as worked extensively with Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and other sacred plants, in their native habitats.
Since 1996, I have been hosting retreats in both the Peruvian and the Brazilian Amazon. At these retreats participants have the opportunity to “meet” ancient teacher plants in their natural environment – the jungle. Also, many of the world’s leading authors and researchers in the field of consciousness studies join our seminars to share their latest research and wisdom. We also perform ayahuasca ceremonies during some of our programs which may be attended by retreat participants as an option.
