Let your heart lead the way into 2018
Come open your heart with us on a 5-day Cacao* retreat on a permaculture farm in the rural mountains of Costa Rica. Through sacred heart medicine, ceremony, and ancient wisdom practices we will explore our inner worlds, release old patterns and leave with a deeper connection to the Earth and ourselves.
This is the perfect place to reflect on the past year and create heart-based intentions for the year to come. With a powerful fire ceremony on New Year’s Eve, a Full Moon Transmissions Sound Ceremony on January 1st, and Visioning Circles on January 2nd, we will harness the energy of this incredibly powerful time so that you can enter 2018 with clarity, openness, and universal support for what will come.
Go deep with Cacao through daily shamanic ceremonies, song, dance, meditation and yoga classes. Cacao (the raw ingredient of chocolate) has been used as a heart opener by indigenous cultures for 3,500 years. Cacao’s active ingredients increase blood flow in the body and release ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain resulting in an expansive, uplifted state. From this place, a deeper connection to your heart, and the ability to let go of blockages, is more easily accessible.
Create the life of your dreams as we cross the threshold into the new year and honor the full moon on Jan 1st. Through guided shamanic journeys, vision boarding and a powerful fire ceremony on New Year’s Eve, we will release what no longer serves us and clarify our visions of what we want to manifest in 2018.
Connect to Nature by getting your hands in the dirt on the Cacao farm, bathing in the beautiful Rio Tulin, waking to the sounds of the jungle and learning about reforestation and permaculture projects from the VerdEnergia Founder.
Uplevel your health with daily yoga and meditation, breathing in fresh jungle air, drinking fresh spring water, and eating the most delicious local home-cooked foods filled with good prana.
is not your typical retreat center. We’ll nourish ourselves on a cooperatively-owned permaculture community and reforestation project located in the rural mountains of Pursical, Costa Rica. With an open air yoga space, earth altars spread throughout the property and epic outdoor firepits, we’ll reconnect with the beauty of the natural elements around us.
We’ll have ample opportunity to connect with Mother Earth in this rustic indoor/outdoor lifestyle by showering in the river, natural pool or on site shower, and using private compostable toilets. This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a natural ecosystem and get in touch with our primal, wild nature.
