In our top three favorite weeks of the year is surely our annual Costa Rica Retreat; a week of diving into our inner landscapes in the exotic locale of Costa Rica. If you’ve been wanting more clarity of vision, more inspiration and purpose, more truth and less fear, more reasons to celebrate and a deeper connection to what is Divine, you’ll definitely want to be here.

This physical world, as well as these bodies that we inhabit, are made up of a combination of the 5 main elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether (space). Ayurveda teaches us that the main cause of dis-ease is a disconnection from nature, from our selves, and from the natural rhythms of mama Earth. By nourishing these subtle elements within our own bodies, as well as connecting to them outside of ourselves, we find our our natural state of balance, which brings with it vibrancy, vitality, and joy.

Please join us for an immersion into yourself; a week of deep nourishment, adventure, and rest.
