What others are saying
Coming to a Ayurvedic healing retreat changed my life! I went in March of this year, our host Stephanie was so amazing & kind. I learned so much more & it has stayed with me- the energy, the universal energy shift has changed who I am. I went in a sad soul, questioning almost everything about my life & purpose. Now, i’m planning on returning next year for another retreat & I am moving forward with my very own wellness business to help people heal integrating Ayurvedic healing practices among other energy practices as a Reiki master. Costa Rica & the “pura vida” vibe changed my life forever. I highly recommend going, it is an incredible experience from the host to the food prepared daily.

For the last 25 years, we have hosted transformational retreats for those who seek purpose, are looking to heal, find answers or simply disconnect and destress.
We only work with highly experienced and well-trained guides who hail from a long lineage of the shaman, who will help prepare you and ensure a safe and effective experience. We also have a medical center with fully qualified doctors close by.
The effect of the serene and secluded Rainforest on healing cannot be overstated. Modern science has proven nature to be a powerful healer that quiets your mind and enhances your sense of wellbeing and opens your heart.
This environment is ideal for healing because it provides a tranquil sanctuary for self-reflection, meditation, and mindfulness while preparing and after the ceremony.
Your safety is our top priority. You will undergo a strict screening process that will determine if you are the right candidate for this ceremony. The intensity of the journey is not for everyone, and it takes an experienced guide to determine who can safely go through the ceremony.
