Purposeful, Healing and Mindful Retreats in the Rainforest

Are we right for each other?
Over 85% of our guests visit us because they feel lost and seek purpose, are dealing with a recent major life change or simply want a tranquil get away. If this is you, then our retreats grounded in ancient healing arts should help you rejuvenate and reset.

If you primarily want to party and go sightseeing, then we are not the right venue for you. Those who visit us solely for such reasons simply do not have a fulfilling experience.

Select Leaders
We only work with leaders who have a proven record of delighting their guests. If you are an established leader with a record of helping your clients, we would love to connect with you. We also are open to mentoring new leaders who share our mission to heal.

Forest Bathing
While technology makes our lives easier, the modern lifestyle robs us of our natural ability to cope with stress and fight illnesses. We evolved in nature and it has been scientifically proven that being surrounded by trees and plants unlocks our natural healing abilities. Walking the grounds, swaying in your hammock or lounging by the pool overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the Rainforest, will reduce your stress, boost your immunity, lower your blood pressure and promote a sense of well being that forms the foundation for natural healing.

Nourish Yourself
You will be served fresh, organically sourced food and juices. The Caribbean side of the country affords us unique access to sources untouched by modernization.

A Full Experience
Our area also offers  a rich cultural immersion. A 20-minute drive away is Puerto Viejo, you will find a bustling town with stunning beaches, world-class surf, Caribbean culture, restaurants and nightlife. In addition there are several fun and cool activities in the area to choose from. You can hike national parks, marvel at majestic waterfalls & visit indigenous tribal lands; ride horses, cuddle with furry friends at animal rescue centers, go zip lining and more.


6 – 10 day all-inclusive retreats focused on helping you find purpose, heal and rejuvenate.


If you host purposeful and healing retreats, please connect with us. We typically host between 15 – 60 people per retreat.
