Let's make Chocolate! Food of the Gods! You will learn how to make chocolate using local, organic, Costa Rican cacao. By the end of this workshop, you will understand how to combine ingredients to produce a quality chocolate product and hopefully, take this skill home, preparing and sharing homemade chocolate with your friends and family.
Learn a short group choreography, drawing from concepts visited in the movement lab! You will have the opportunity to take part in a cumulative video project, filmed in the lush mountains and professionally edited!
Sound healing is simply healing through sound. The sound created vibrates you on a cellular level, thus being an agent for detoxification and purification of the body.
Get ready to turn yourself into an avatar! This spa party takes place in the breathtakingly pristine, natural surroundings of the Rio Chirripo Pacifico. You will start the festivities by painting each other blue with rain forest clay that has been sustainably and locally harvested here in Costa Rica. You will then paint designs over the blue clay providing for some "art therapy" and a great photo opp. You will wash the clay off by bathing in the river.
Then, you will scrub each other using a coffee chocolate coconut scrub that was made in-house before your arrival. After the scrub application, you will apply body butter (also made from the finest ingredients in-house). It is a promise that this will be a truly unforgettable spa day experience that will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and revived.
Fire ceremonies have had a long-standing tradition of bringing communities together. The act of gathering wood and starting a fire reestablishes a connection to nature and our humanity.
You will end on the highest note possible. You will celebrate the end of your retreat with a close out ecstatic dance party in the jungle lit by laser lights where everyone is free to be as expressive or as chill as they like. Warning: The music selection is extremely eclectic!
