Retreat InfoAbout the Retreat:
A hypnotic place to connect, unwind, learn and express.
We are hosting a self-empowerment retreat in Costa Rica to clear away the dark clouds of the fears that loom above cancer patients and share a healing circle of community. We will lead the group to the plentiful herbal medicine forests of Costa Rica, in a gorgeous syntropic farm nested in the Arenal National Park.
Our hope for this retreat is to create a hypnotic place to connect with others and their cancer journeys, to relax, unwind, and learn. This will allow us to connect to the inner wisdom in all of us to allow our mind-body-soul to unify in our unique journey.
We want to hold a space of beauty, whilst nurturing self expression and inner peace, feeding the mind and activating the body. This educational-based event will supply mindful techniques and strategies to face the different phases of cancer with powerful tools such as herbal medicine, EMDR, nutrition and somatic work.
