Terre Essence de Soi Yoga Retreat in Panama Program

Reiki Usui

Reiki practitioners use a technique they call palm healing or hands-on healing by which a "universal energy" is allegedly transferred through the palms of the practitioner to a patient in order to encourage healing.

This energy helps relieve blockages and improves physical and mental health. On this retreat, you will be introduced in the first degree of Reiki Usui and the traditional Reiki Usui techniques. After that, you will be able to transmit this energy to yourself and others.

5 axes

This initiatory journey revolves around 5 axes that will be developed throughout the 8 days. Those axes are as follows:

  • I. Yoga and AcroYoga: Interiority and sharing
  • II. Yoga and Reiki: Unity and creative energy healing
  • III. Thai massage and Reiki: Release the body and develop the sense of touch to feel and accept the circulation of the universal energy
  • IV. Meditation and Reiki: Analogy in between the different body to link to the inner self and intuition
  • V. Meditation and nature: Discover your own personal space in relation to your connection with nature and your element and discover nature immersion and energetic places and telluric energy charging

How to get there

Arrival by airplane

There are 1-hour flights from Panamá City's domestic airport (PAC) into Bocas del Toro Airport (BOC). If you fly from Panamá City, you will need to go from the Tocumen International Airport (PTY) to the domestic airport (30-minute taxi ride at 35 USD), unless you fly with AirPanama, which departs from both airports. If you can book a flight from the international airport before 1:30 p.m., you can make it into Bocas del Toro the same day.

If you travel from Costa Rica you can book a flight from San José: Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) or Tobías Bolaños International Airport (SYQ) for 1 hour. Take into account that there is also a 28 USD international departure fee from Costa Rica. Always try to book flights to Bocas del Toro in advance, Skyscanner might help.

Once you have arrived at Bocas del Toro airport, which is located on Isla Colón, the Virginia's Dock is a 10 to 15-minute walk or 1 USD taxi ride away. There, Terre Essence de Soi will happily meet you for the pre-arranged boat pick-up.

  • The deposit is fully refundable if the booking is cancelled up to 2 days before the arrival date.
