Words alone cannot capture the depth of our excitement as we prepare to embark on this extraordinary journey ​with you. For years, we've been nurturing the seeds of this dream, and now, it's flourishing into a reality. To share ​this land where we are not just visitors; we are part of its tapestry. Our connection runs deep as we work directly ​with a family of third-generation cacao farmers at i.e.kawa, sourcing the purest cacao for our ceremonies. ​Beyond this, we feel the resonance of past lives that continues to call us here.


Our primary intention is to create safe and sacred spaces that foster profound transformation and ​deep healing. We will begin and conclude our week together with a sacred cacao ceremony, ​hosted by i.e.KAWA and esteemed medicine woman, Luna, on the land where our cacao is lovingly ​nurtured and grown.

We are deeply honored to share with you two ceremonies facilitated by local shamans during this ​journey. Our first ceremony is the Inipi, which translates to 'to live again.' It's a traditional Native ​American Sweat Lodge experience, where we connect with the elements and the four sacred ​directions, cradled within the womb of the Great Mother. This sacred rite purifies our bodies, ​minds, and spirits.

Following the Inipi, we embark on a restorative Cacao Ceremony, guided by a shamanic sound ​journey. This intricate blend of ancient heart medicine and transcendental sound aims to guide us ​in rediscovering our true essence and purpose in this existence.


We understand the significance of nourishing both your ​body and your soul. Our daily meals are a delightful ​celebration of local and seasonal fruits, vegetables, and ​offerings, ensuring that your journey is not only ​enlightening but also deeply satisfying.

Our daily meals are not only nourishment for the body ​but also a time to gather and share in the warmth of ​togetherness. With a focus on local and seasonal ​delights, each meal becomes a celebration of both ​culinary art and communal spirit.

*Vegan & Vegetarian meals provided with the possible ​option of fish or meat depending on seasonality

3 meals per day INCLUDED​

*Dinner on the arrival day and breakfast upon departure only*​

Connecting with the Land

Our true passion lies in connecting with the land and the vibrant local community. Join us ​as we embark on an exploration of the beloved farmers' market, where our cacao journey ​first took root. We can't wait to introduce you to the enchantment of the trees and have ​you savor the pure delight of fresh cacao seeds!

As we venture on beach walks, nature hikes, and retreat space encounters with monkeys ​and iguanas, you'll witness the captivating magic of Costa Rica. Prepare to feel a ​newfound sense of vitality and aliveness in the embrace of this extraordinary land.

Daily Practices

Every day, we encourage you to embrace ​'movement medicine,' a holistic method of ​healing through physical expression. Our ​diverse range of practices includes various ​yoga styles, Qi Gong, dance meditation, and ​more. These modalities are thoughtfully crafted ​to facilitate a deeper connection with your ​body, tap into the divine flow, and release any ​blocked or stagnant energy

The heart of our retreat lies in the profound ​impact of workshops and classes. Drawing ​from our own transformative experiences, we ​are dedicated to bringing you teachings, ​messages, and connections that have the ​power to change lives, shift awareness and ​remind us of our profound ​interconnectedness.

Breathwork + Meditation

Immerse in transformative breathwork ​and meditation to realign your energy ​centers, expand consciousness, awaken ​and move the kundalini, all while ​deepening your connection with Mother ​Earth and all living beings.


Synergies of Space

Everything we do is guided by intuition and Spirit. Throughout the week together we will share practices and tools to help you more clearly tune into ​your inner guidance system. Due to this we cannot concretely say exactly what workshops we’ll be offering because it will depend on the group and ​collective energy at the time.

Here are some examples of what we plan to dive into but not limited too:

Deepening Our Connection with Self Through Love & Discovery

Saying Yes to LIFE: Higher Mind, Higher Self

Intuition, Our Inner Guidance System

Chakras, Rhythm, Flow & Recalibration

Connecting with Ancestors, Animals & Spirit Guides

We understand the rejuvenating and purifying effects of the ocean, ​and we're committed to offering you ample opportunities to connect ​with its soothing embrace. Our schedule includes moments for ​beach yoga, enchanting evening stargazing, and nearly daily ​excursions to bask in the rejuvenating waters of this magical ​coastline. Join us in immersing ourselves in the sand, sun, and sea to ​revitalize both body and spirit.


Every day, we set aside precious moments for rest, reflection, ​journaling, and the vital process of integration. This is your ​opportunity to nurture a deep connection with self, whether you ​choose to enjoy a refreshing swim, engage in contemplative ​journaling, or share beautiful conversations with fellow participants.

Beyond Blissed

Self-care is a practice often overlooked or postponed in our ​busy lives, where time and resources are rarely set aside for ​it. We believe that a beautiful way to rest, rejuvenate, and ​integrate is to honor your physical being with nurturing ​care. That's why we've thoughtfully incorporated healing ​and therapeutic spa treatments into your experience!

One 90 minute spa session is INCLUDED in the Renewal of ​Spirit Package. You can choose to have one 90 minute ​Massage of various types OR 2 back to back 45 minute ​sessions with partial massage and your choice of ​reflexology, coffee+cacao+sugar scrub, papaya mask and ​MORE!

*Additional deep healing offerings specific to woman ​available for an additional price, can be selected and set up ​onsite.

Words from Community

It is difficult to explain and I don't think ​words can convey the overall feeling. It ​was happiness, safety, connection, ​community … and it was strong. I can’t ​thank Lindsey and Aaron enough for ​that evening. It helped me realize things ​about myself both good and what needs ​to be worked on. They said sometimes ​you can feel the medicine working days ​later and I was able to have the ​opportunity to feel what they meant. I ​can’t wait to join again one day!

The cacao ceremony experience provided by ​i.e. KAWA was incredibly beautiful. Healing, ​informative, transformative, and awakening. ​I would highly recommend every person ​have this experience. It brings an inner ​peace, introspection, and a healing unlike ​any other.

This was such a lovely experience. This was ​the first in person ceremony I’ve ever done ​and it lived up to and surpassed all my ​expectations. Lindsay and Aaron are such ​genuine, kind souls and you can really feel ​that radiating from them as they lead you in ​ceremony. The experience was filled with so ​much happiness, joy, peace, and reflection. It ​felt very personal, homey, and comfortable. ​Everyone was able to let their walls down ​and just Be Here Now. It was great and I ​highly recommend for anyone looking to ​open their heart and connect!
