“When I decided to attend the Immersion, I was at a point in my life where I was searching for answers, directions and meaning to my life. ‘I’d not worked for 6 months and to be honest up to the point, my heart was still not in the space to return to work. My journey through the six days was intense, my experience is difficult to put into words, I can only describe my experience as very physical, like I was being encouraged to feel again.

I have more confidence than I have had in years, I like myself again, and shortly I will be returning back to work and most importantly I am happy, I can honestly say feel like I have been let into a little secret, and am now able to look at life, see fear, feel emotion, but not be governed by it, I feel like I’ve been set free.  I would defiantly recommend this retreat to anyone, and if you are considering attending, I would simply say follow your heart. The moment I met Brother, Anke and Harrie I knew I had nothing to worry about. Love resonates from these guys, they are family.”

“Dearest Brother, I am so amazed by what happened this weekend, the opening up, the healing, the transformation. I came basically to work on my depression and addiction but received so much more; family, perspective, my soul back, and a spirit heart.  In the preparation meditations, I could never feel this spirit heart you where talking about but now it’s there -and beating strong.

Brother…. thank you, thank you, thank you – You are a fantastic facilitator for Mother Ayahuasca and a great and inspiring teacher – respect! Gita and Guido are both beautiful and awesome souls that i am so greatful for having met – their way of approaching life will guide me. And Inge, I did not have the privilege to see much of her, but she was there through you, Brother and your work and not to mention through the food. And the little one, Munai Ji – what a perfect little being!”

“The Vine of the Soul retreat was well above my expectations! Brother is a humble teacher who not only talks the talks but also walks the walk. He’s a great master.  Anke & Guido are also angels who were also sharing there devotion to us. Anke, your singing guided me all the way. Divine! Guido, You’re authentic loving heart supported me with your fire & caring. Thank you Brother for the rituals, the songs who were so openhearted, and all the other extras.

The week was one loving Ceremony. Very intense! Thank You Mother Ayahuasca. I’ve healed old pain. I’ve got insights about my sons. About how i can help them better. I saw health issues in my body that need care. I feel so grateful. I want to live. To go back to my world at home and to apply the insights that I had gained. I fully love my life again and i’m so aware of it.  I saw what really matters: love… and all the loving people that are in my world. I know again what my heart desires. Thank You!! & see you again!” ,

My intentions for the ceremony were to get rid of my high defences  which had been important for me as a child in my family of origin, but were obstructing me in my current life. I also hoped to gain access to my heart which seemed to have been locked in very early childhood. Miraculously Mother Aya, supported by Brother, Gita and Guido has done exactly this for me, giving me access to joy and love maybe for the first time in my life.  

Having returned home to my wife and children I feel that my relationships have changed radically with me feeling lighter, more open and able to express love. I am more grateful, than I have ever been in my life, about what has been given to me. At the same time a strange sadness has overcome me, now having seen, that all that is and has been important to me and that I have newly learned to love may just be an illusion. Beware: Once the veil has been pulled, there is no turning back to the path of ignorance!”

avatarThe retreat transformed me from a 8-track tape player to a Hi-Definition Digital Player, in a week.  If you are considering going, I would say, "Go, if you want to change. The fasting, the mental, and the physical cleansing that occurs is life changing." The retreat opened my heart. The love and positive energy that was the driving energy behind the retreat expanded my being to point that within me I feel the others and the world.  I gained a sense of Oneness. Patrick, your program The Fasting Path did not abandon me.  The fasting, meditation, yoga and purification is a prescription for healing humanity. Patrick you should be on the Oprah Show. You have the Gift. I thank you for sharing!

avatarI began my journey with some hesitation; given the connection I always had with solid food. I knew there was something to eating healthier, I just did not think I had it in me to look within myself and persevere.  I can say that the whole retreat was surreal. Since then, my demeanor has changed quite a bit. I took back to my home a much stronger and more calm version of myself. I feel more humble and more in touch with a higher vibration.  I tell all my interested friends to take the plunge; pack and get on a flight for the journey of a lifetime.  And thank you Patrick for the insight to pursue a higher calling - I hope you will bless us with your presence when we open the yoga center here in Temple Texas. Sat Nam Patrick!

avatarThank you Patrick for sharing your teachings with the world. You are a true healer and a true inspiration. Now as I am living my daily life back home, I feel the benefits and changes it (the retreat) has done to my body and spirit. You opened my eyes to truly experience my connection with food, myself and all of life. I find myself sharing with so many people all the lessons I learned throughout the retreat. I feel so blessed to have been part of such a beautiful experience. Thank you Patrick. I will definitely be back!
