RESERVE YOUR SPACE NOW!

It is Gaia… Mother Earth… Mother Nature… who’s fertile womb created all living things and is always working to achieve balance and maintain harmony.  We can learn so much from her passive and feminine way of being, for she is a healing Goddess!  Tap into that energy with a group of like-minded souls on this heavenly, tropical escape.

Description

Our Costa Rica retreat will take place from Saturday, December 2 – Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at a private retreat center in a lush eco-permaculture sanctuary, surrounded by beautiful nature at the base of the Chirripo Mountain Reserve, with rivers and hot springs nearby.  Bless yourself in ways never imagined by joining us on a journey of self healing and sacred sisterhood.

 

Journey with us this December to an unforgettably nurturing experience in Costa Rica, home to an abundance of healing energy, pristine nature, subtropical climate and protected jungle. Our private jungle eco-retreat center will provide the perfect atmosphere to magnify your mind, body, spirit and soul connection, while fully immersed in sisterhood gatherings, sacred rituals, and relaxation. Holistic Goddess Retreats is known for providing transformation spaces of healing and beauty for women to reset and transform.

 

 

What To Expect…

Our Gaia Goddess nature immersion retreat will be an experience in which we will honor Mother Earth through deep connection, vision quests, the elements, meditation, nature mandalas, water purification at the hot springs, beach gatherings, hikes, herbs and elixirs, spirit animals, ceremonies, dance, and more…taking in all of Gaia’s beautiful gifts and magic. This gathering will be nestled in the lush foothills of the Chirripo Mountain Reserve and sit gracefully along the banks of the pristine Talari River. It’s surrounded by rain forests, graced by a vibrant community, secluded in peaceful tranquility, is full of warmth, and will provide the perfect opportunity to connect with our great Mother Earth. It is such an honor for us to share this gem with you!

 

For 5 days, we will gather as Goddesses in a safe and inspiring environment, surrounded by Gaia and the energy of her wild.  This will be the perfect setting for an in-depth connection to the Earth energy that leads and guides us everyday, and to align ourselves with the wisdom of the many plants, animals and creatures we’ll encounter throughout our adventures.  Our days will be filled with an abundance of activities to explore our beautiful Earth and her healing gifts.  We will also take a multidimensional journey into the ecstatic and transformative power of cacao, using a euphoria-inducing, heart-opening, love-drenched cacao elixir and live music as the mediums for the potent spiritual essence of the ceremony. Our hearts will be wide open, sipping a rich brew of ceremonial cacao, receiving healing energy work, while being wooed and musically caressed by the sweet soundscapes of a world-class musician. All organic farm to table meals will be inclusive, and optional healing sessions will be available.  In addition to all of our gatherings, ceremonies, euphoric cacao experience and more, highlighted experiences include:

 

  • Guided nature hikes to soak up the spectacular beauty of our environment, with a healing hot springs excursion
  • A beach outing and ceremony to deeply connect with the Goddess energy of the ocean
  • Conscious nature crafts, such as flower crowns, nature mandalas, herbal potions, and Goddess essential oils
  • A Costa Rica marketplace shopping experience

 

Treat yourself to a week of surrender, sweetness, gifting restoration and renewal, as you reawaken to your primal instincts, and visceral communication with Mother Earth!
