Ignite Your Inner Nature in Costa Rica

Presented by: Kate Nicholson & Mae Corwin
Warm your bones, relax your mind and nourish your spirit with us this winter. Hit pause on the pressures of daily life to immerse yourself in the rich & diverse natural wonders of Costa Rica. This retreat will be an opportunity to connect with a supportive community of women while living artfully in nature and exploring inner and outer landscapes with fresh eyes and renewed energy. We will use the eastern philosophy of the five elements in our daily practices to cultivate a deeper connection in Presence, Pleasure & Purpose. Less doing & more being- transplant yourself into a lush and therapeutic environment where you will have ample time and space to rest, relax, play, explore and just sit with the bigger questions that stir within you. Feel safe to get curious around your inner desires, to reassess and release what no longer serves and truly listen to what whispers in your soul.

The journey will begin with a welcoming dinner and ceremony. You will be nourished by 3 delicious organic, locally sourced vegan meals daily as well as morning Costa Rican coffee/tea/fruit. The food is sustainably grown and prepared from either our local farm or farms nearby. La Selva Armonia is committed to living in harmony with the planet and local community that sustain us. Each morning will begin with a meditation and vinyasa yoga class leading you into relationship with your inner nature, rhythms & cycles. During the day you will have time to hike to the beautiful nearby waterfall, walk the medicinal gardens learning about permaculture & rainforest medicine, personal journaling, receive a relaxing massage, take a day trip to the gorgeous beaches, famous "whale tail" & Pacific ocean, have a zipline adventure or boating expedition. We will treat you to a special cacao ceremony, a bonfire party, and a natural ayurvedic spa experience as well! Finish your day with a restorative yoga class followed by guided meditation and family-style dinner and the breathtaking ocean sunsets from the jungle canopy.
