About this trip

Situated on a stunning island in the middle the largest lake in Nicaragua, Ometepe is a peaceful sanctuary home to 2 volcanoes, one active and one dormant. 


We welcome ALL- from adventuring eco-minded travelers to heart-centered change makers,  join the Natural Leaders Foundation and a group of skilled facilitators to lead us through a week of education, exploration and total rejuvenation.


Get immersed in nature, regenerative culture and community connection while tending to your health and vitality!



BEAUTIFY OUR LIVES ACTION DAYS: The service portion of our Ometepe Island retreat is focused on aiding a young family with their ongoing projects to support the native peoples & ecosystem of this beautiful island. Their endeavors are bringing work opportunities, community improvements and awareness around medicinal herbs and natural solutions.  


We will be working alongside this local grassroots group to bring vital upgrades to one of the island's primary schools such as roof repairs, building lunch table and starting kitchen build plus installing a small community garden and a large mural co-created with the local families and children. 



* please note: the terrain is rough through most of the areas we will be exploring, please take this into consideration if you have any mobility issues.

DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER

HEALING

Intentional self-growth is a form of healing and a rite of passage. It is also something we at the Natural Leaders Foundation find fundamental for the strength & sustainability of rising small communities, especially those that have been systematically overlooked for generations. Through interactive, unexpectedly fun exercises we unravel the power & the simple process of holding space for ourselves, our loved ones & our local communities. 


SELF-CARE & THE GIFT PRESENCE

We will deepen our inner-standing of how the body often allows stagnate emotions to stick & how to practically transform those old patterns & devaluing habits into empowering tools for self development. Reconnect with your most loved forms of expression and rise up to gift yourself creative liberation through pure presence. Say Yes to Your Unique Genius- transform old stories into quantum fuel for creation!


SOULFUL SERVICE

Join us in reconnecting with our original design & purpose as humans, tending to our Great Mother Earth. Through daily hands-on action we will immerse ourselves in caring for our sacred ecosystems & the people who live tending to them. Experience the reciprocal nature of the universe in real-time through a live exchange of unconditional love & service.


REGENERATIVE SKILLS

Get ready to fill up on practical knowledge to make intentional living and regenerative practices fit your everyday routine. We will use hands-on workshops and interactive demonstrations to  simplify good relations with the ecosystems around you!


TRANSFORMATION

You will leave this week full of clarity and purpose. Freed from limiting beliefs and ready to return home with a fresh perspective on your roles, goals and inspirations as we collectively move into the #Restoring20s. Discover what it feels like to truly become your own Natural Leader!


CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE 

We will have an itinerary that weaves scheduled activations with open, free time to enjoy your surroundings. We will also give a day or two for guided adventures of your choice! You can also use this time to hang around the island, shop at local artisanal shops or simply go for a swim!

We look forward to you joining us!


Well Wishes,
