Day 1 · October 4, 2024

Embark on a journey of self-discovery

As you land at Costa Rica's airport, you'll feel the warm embrace of the tropical sun, marking the beginning of our journey. Your presence is more than a tourist on vacation. It's a meeting of souls seeking the path to self-discovery. A group transfer from the airport takes us to our sanctuary for the next five days. As soon as you have your keys, settle into the peaceful rooms at Finca Luna Nueva Lodge.

Once comfortable, we gather in a circle surrounded by the heart of the jungle. We get acquainted with each other not merely with words, but with an earnest sharing of our motivations. A gentle breathwork session following a rhythmic dance of inhales and exhales will help us harmonize our energies with the vibrant pulse of the rainforest. Oracle cards, like whispers from the universe, guide us on our inner quest, unlocking the mysteries that reside within.

As the day gracefully unfolds, we come together for a dinner that transcends sustenance — it's a nourishment of body and soul, a culinary celebration of the journey that awaits. In the company of kindred spirits, under the canopy of stars, we lay the foundation for a transformative retreat, a journey of coming home to self.

Day 2 · October 5, 2024

Empowering yourself through primal movement

Awakening to the symphony of nature, the second day of our transformative retreat unfolds in a rhythm that echoes the beat of your authentic self. Guided by the gentle cadence of morning meditation, we embark on a journey inward, penning our thoughts in journals as the sun bathes the jungle in golden hues. Breakfast, a feast for both body and spirit, sets the tone for the day ahead. Our next experience takes us into the embrace of Eco-termales hot springs, where the healing waters cradle you in a natural sanctuary. Allow the warm waters to release the tensions in your body. After the hot springs, we meet for lunch and enjoy a celebration of growth and nourishment.

In the afternoon, we come together to reflect on what it means to embrace boundaries and how that can be the key to empowerment. At the same time, we conquer fear through primal movement.

Free time invites you to explore the lush surroundings, fostering a sense of community amidst the vibrant tapestry of nature. As the day surrenders to the evening, we gather for a dinner that aligns our senses with the divine. To end the day, we come together for a restorative flow yoga session.

Day 3 · October 6, 2024

Pause to express gratitude in a cacao ceremony

As the dawn kisses the sky, the third day of our transformative journey commences with a guided meditation, an intimate dialogue with the soul captured in the pages of our journals. Breakfast is a communion of flavors, a feast to fortify our bodies for the day ahead. Led by Amanda's empowering guidance, we delve into the realm of courage, transcending fear through an arm balance workshop — a testament to strength, growth, and alignment with our authentic selves.

Lunch powers us through the rest of the day, setting the stage for the afternoon's profound experiences. The ancient wisdom of a cacao ceremony intertwines with the guidance of oracle cards and guided meditation, weaving a tapestry of introspection, connection, and gratitude. Some free time allows you to explore, relax, and enjoy the tranquility that envelops our sanctuary.

As the sun dips below the horizon, we gather for a dinner that nourishes both body and spirit. The night concludes with yin yoga, echoing the day's theme of authenticity, empowerment, and alignment with the transformative forces of nature.

Day 4 · October 7, 2024

Shift your perspective with movement and self-expression

The fourth day of our transformative retreat begins with a morning flow yoga session, a dance of movement and meditation that unfolds under the verdant landscape that envelops us. After our body is warmed up, we nourish it over breakfast to fuel the rest of the day. After a bit of free time, we enjoy lunch, surrounded by the symphony of the rainforest. Afternoon beckons a session on self-expression, where we continue practicing primal movement to overcome fear and embrace empowerment. Spend the rest of the afternoon reflecting on your journey so far while enjoying the natural wonders that surround us.

The day concludes with a dinner that honors both our journey and the communal spirit that unites us. Gathered beneath the stars, we embark on a ceremonial closure, remembering that endings are mere gateways to new beginnings. Intentions are renewed, breathwork becomes a rhythm of rebirth, and oracle cards guide us toward the path of continued transformation. In the embrace of this lush sanctuary, we surrender to the ebb and flow of our collective journey.

Day 5 · October 8, 2024

Head home with renewed intentions, ready for new beginnings

As the sun begins its ascent on the final day of our retreat, we gather for a farewell breakfast — a gathering of hearts that have journeyed together. Each bite serves as a reminder of the strength found in our community and the alignment forged with the natural beauty that envelops us. With hearts full and spirits renewed, we embrace the transformative power of this sanctuary one last time. Checking out of our sanctuary, we remind ourselves that this is not the end of our process of growth but the start of the journey sparked within us. As we bid adieu, may the memories of meditation, movement, and moments of relaxation reverberate in your being. May they be a source of restoration and inspiration as you carry the essence of this retreat into the new beginnings that await.
