Costa Rica Retreat: Evoking Ceremony


Ceremony is the building of a bridge that spans the barrier between the realms of Spirit and the Mundane.

Each participant will receive the instruction and pragmatic application of that knowledge to enable them to confidently create living ceremonials that dance with Creation!

  • 6 full days of Training with Jade Wah’oo and Lisa Starr
  • 1 full day of Excursion at no extra cost to you. Options may be:
    • Jungle canopy zip-line tour
    • Hike to a beautiful waterfall (and yes, immersion in it!)
    • A tour of a local chocolate farm where the cacao is grown, harvested and turned into chocolate by hand… followed by a full body cacao nib body scrub. Did someone say chocolate?! Yum!
    • A tour of a local wild animal rehabilitation park, where you will see, in close proximity, a wide selection of the Caribbean’s wild animal inhabitants.
  • Lodging
    • Double occupancy rooms at beautiful Kaya’s Place Hotel. We will be staying mere steps from the beach. Single occupancy lodging is available at additional cost. Inquire asap!
    • The hotel is 500 meters from the town of Puerto Viejo… close enough to stroll into town for restaurants and shopping, just far enough outside town to be away from the hustle and bustle.
  • Free Time!
    • Plenty of free time is allowed for in the daily itinerary so that you can go swimming, lay out on the beach, go for hikes or explore the area by bicycle on your own.
    • Restaurants are plentiful, and so are the choices. You will find organic restaurants, vegetarian and vegan restaurants, seafood (locally caught!), the absolute best Italian you could imagine, breakfast nooks and numerous typical Caribbean restaurants that are called a ‘soda’. No, I have no idea why!
    • Music is everywhere in the Caribbean!
    • Not to be missed is the Saturday Farmers Market, filled with locally sourced jungle fruits and veggies, organic and wildcrafted! And… chocolate!
  • And…


Does not include your round trip airfare nor transport to and from Puerto Viejo and the airport.

Meals are of your own choosing and expense.
