About this trip

Join inspired leaders Lori Myles-Carullo, Kaylan Wojcik, and Lauren Racanelli for a power-filled week in the heart of Costa Rica within which to let your SHAKTI SHINE! 'Shakti' is a Sanskrit word for the Divine Feminine Power at the base of all Creative Energy. All of us as women are the embodiment of this Shakti, and as we connect with this powerful energy, we find liberation from old patterns that no longer serve us and we gain the courage and inspiration to become more of who we were meant to be on a deep, rich, soul level.

Each day of this magical retreat at Mystica Lodge will be devoted to a different Shakti Goddess Energy from various spiritual traditions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Native American, and Hinduism. Our various practices of breath work, Yoga, meditation, chanting, New Moon ritual, oracle card reading, Ecstatic Dance, and more will assist us in healing what lies in the shadows of these energies and will empower us into activating and realizing those gifts within our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls. 

We will also adventure to the EcoGlide Canopy Tour by the Arenal Volcano to rise and fly at the top of the canopy of the jungle, bathe in the soothing thermal Hot Springs, and enjoy a beach day on the Pacific Coast at the lovely Playa Hermosa.

We hope you will join us for a week in Pura Vida land that will delight and deeply nurture your brilliant and ever-powerful Shakti Heart! 

Note: All deposits for Shakti Rising are non-transferable and non-refundable.

I absolutely love helping others relax into themselves, remember the Truth of Who They Are, and to live their happiest and healthiest lives. My path has been one of great healing and spiritual evolution, and it is such a joy to be able to lead Yoga based retreats in various gorgeous parts of the Earth and to witness my participants shift from stress/tension/challenges into lighter, more inspired ways of living and being. My family is a great joy that I cherish, and I feel very blessed to be part of a life that includes Canada, Costa Rica, and Italy. Over the years, I have evolved my work in the wellness field to include Healing Flow Massage, Reiki Energy Healing and Teaching, Leading Yoga (Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, and Yin), and Transformational Counselling based in my Master's Degree in Transpersonal Psychology. Life is a precious gift, and miracles are always possible in every single sacred breath. We are here to live magnificent lives. I am here to help you.


The most amazing experience in the most enchanting of places, with the most wonderful people... I'm signing up for next year's retreat! :)

My trip to the Mystica Retreat was amazing. Lori and Francesco are the ultimate hosts. I felt at home the minute I arrived and when I left, I felt like I was leaving my family. The setting is calming, peaceful and comfortable. The food incredible. The staff over the top accommodating. I cannot wait to go back.
