Escape to Costa Rica!
With Karen Score
November 2 - 10, 2018
Break away from the noise of everyday life and replenish your soul in the symphonic sounds of the rainforest
Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbirds delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and laughter is life’s sweetest creation.
Join Kristen Zorda & Karen Score of Yoga Mandali for a COSTA RICAN RAINFOREST RETREAT November 2-10, 2018!
Experience the sweet sound of the hummingbirds wings along with the multitude of magical rainforest inhabitants in a bio diverse ecosystem – monkeys, sloths, over 400 species of birds, hundreds of brightly colored and bizarre insects, frogs and butterflies! Our hope is that by immersing ourself within this peaceful environment of such an immense variety of intelligent life living in a state of harmony we can learn something about ourselves and the way we choose to live in a world that seems to get crazier every day!
Unplug in 250 acres of protected Primary and Secondary Rainforest, swim in the Caribbean Sea, read a book in your hammock while listening to nature’s serene soundscapes. Let the sounds of the rainforest lull you to sleep at night (rather than the drone of the nightly news!), wake up to the calls of the howler monkeys at sunrise (sweeter than an annoying alarm!), enjoy locally sourced organic meals, participate in daily yoga, find time for quiet meditation, reiki or massage. Take a time out for yourself while opening your heart to the company and laughter of new friends.
Ecological Adventure Excursions are also included in this rejuvenating retreat. We will visit the Jaguar Animal Rescue Center, learn about Cacao Trees and see how chocolate is made (you can try it too!), tour the Cahuita National Park, take a guided night hike, enjoy the many beautiful beaches, and also enjoy the hospitality, love and laughter of a local woman as she teaches us one of her favorite traditional recipes right in her own kitchen! We have also included (as always in a Grace in Nature Retreat) a Seva (volunteer) project at a local school for girls ages 6-11. This is always one of the best aspects of any retreat – giving back!
This 8 night adventure includes previously listed excursions, ground transportation, hotel/airport transfers, hotel first and last night in San Jose, 6 nights at Samasati Retreat Center and Nature Sanctuary, 3 delicious meals a day, shuttle to beach and, of course,…the opportunity to unwind, relax, and reconnect and recharge so we can return home with the capacity to live in harmony, gratitude, acceptance, abundance and joy.
