The Retreat is OPEN to anyone who is looking for a break from fast pace living and also who is looking ofr a deeper connection with the self. Perfect opportuntiyt o anyone seeking to re-charge, re-center, re-balance life and its many commitments. 

The Idea to Combine Ayurveda and Sacred Cacao came after Richard visited one of Cristiane's Retreat in Costa Rica, and they both vowed to Manifest a retreat that would be Powerful, Gentle and Tranformative.

Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of medicine, dating back over 5,000 years to ancient India. It is the science of living in harmony with nature. In Sanskrit, ayur- means life and -veda means knowledge. Ayurveda utilizes various therapies including yoga, diet, massage and herbal preparations to bring balance and harmony to the body, mind and soul. It is a truly holistic approach to achieving and maintaining that balance.

Native to tropical areas of Latin America, cacao is chocolate before the processing; an unsugared, unadulterated form of one of our world's favorite sweets. Known as a super food, cacao is high in magnesium, calcium, antioxidants, and iron--and is an incredible mood booster! One of its components is anandamide, a neurotransmitter known as the bliss molecule. For those with an interest or background in yoga and/or Hindu philosophy, you may know that the word "ananda" means bliss and refers to a higher state of being. Cacao facilitates our goal of achieving that blissful state and deepening our connection to our truest selves, Mother Nature, and universal oneness. According to an indigenous myth, when the balance between humankind and nature is threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open our hearts and return us to harmony. For those of you who know that your connection with chocolate runs deep, we invite you to experience another dimension of that connection--a deeply spiritual or shamanic one. Ceremonial cacao partners with us, facilitating the journey inward and the discovery of our truest, highest, most love-filled selves.

Cristiane and Richard are delighted to Invite YOU on this long weekend journey to a place of Self-Love, Self-Compassion, and Self`-Transformation.
