This is the ultimate retreat for relaxation and exploration. Each day we'll dive deep towards inward exploration through powerful group meditations, yoga and profound talks that uncover your inner-wisdom helping you to understand your place in the universe. We will also have plenty of opportunities for outward exploration through excursions zip-lining through the rainforest canopy, trekking to waterfalls, surfing, kayaking and building sandcastles or horseback riding on the nearby pristine beaches. It will be the perfect balance of rest and activity designed to fully integrate profound changes in consciousness.
The retreat will be held near the colorful town of Puerto Viejo, also known as Little Jamaica. The retreat center is nature-oriented. The rooms and bungalows are tucked away in the peaceful vibrance of the rainforest. We will be surrounded by butterfly fields and rolling canopies with howler monkeys, toucans and beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea. Puerto Viejo is known as one of the best places in the world to learn to surf because of its gentle consistent waves.
Three delicious gourmet organic vegetarian meals will be served each day, with vegan and gluten free options upon request. Most of the ingredients will be locally sourced. The fruit will be harvested from the land we'll be staying on and the chocolate from nearby cacao plantations. It doesn't get much better than that.
Bring the kids. We have a fun and mindful program for them too.
Families will love this all inclusive option for adventure. Parents will enjoy a program designed for deep rest, exploration, and time to experience themselves fully. Children will have their own program packed with adventure and fun. They will be fully cared for and taught by Julie Gandolfo assisted by Liddy Arens. Julie is a long-time meditator, child care specialist and surf instructor. She is known for her blissful personality and enthusiasm for life. Liddy has been meditating and studying Vedic knowledge for decades. As a mama to three children, she has a keen sense of what children need to thrive. She's designed an awesome children's program. Children's excursions will be based on the group dynamic.
