About this trip

Welcome to Somatic Waves: a somatics, surf, and self-discovery retreat, curated by Randelle Lusk & Rare Method, nestled within the serene ambiance of the Sansara Wellness Resort in Cambutal, Panama. Set against the backdrop of Panama's paradisiacal coastline, adorned with swaying palm trees, captivating sunsets, the melodic symphony of ocean waves, and powdery sand beaches, this retreat guarantees an unforgettable experience.


Immerse yourself in the embrace of nature's splendor as you step into a sacred space where the relentless pace of everyday life fades away, allowing you to reconnect with your body and rediscover your authentic self. Our retreat offers an extraordinary blend of Rare Method's somatic-informed practices, weaving together mindfulness, movement, breath work, and self-inquiry. Picture a fusion of flowing yoga sequences intertwined with therapeutic movements, liberating cathartic releases, powerful breath work, and purposeful pause—all meticulously crafted to facilitate a profound recalibration of your nervous system, enabling you to embody your true essence and reclaim your unique existence.
