About the Event

Embodied Presence

Join Jessi and Kimmel for 7 nights in the serene jungle hideaway of Tierra de Suenos Eco Retreat & Wellness Center in Playa Chiquita on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Our lodging is a 5 hour drive from the San Jose International Airport and sits between 6 pristine beaches & lush rainforest, home to many different species of tropical birds, sloths, monkeys, and other exotic wildlife. Tierra de Suenos is an eco-friendly facility off the beaten path living simply & harmoniously with nature. This means that everything they use is composted, repurposed, reused, and eventually returns to nature in some way so as to maintain balance with the land. The beautiful plant-based menu we will be served during our stay is simple, nutritious, fresh, and grown on site - rainforest to fork. We are located 5 km from the tourist town of Puerto Viejo de Talmanaca which offers an active nightlife, shopping, and local food & culture that we will be certain to get out and enjoy!

Our accommodations are rustic open air bungalows without air conditioning, but complete with ceiling fans to keep the air circulating, and a washroom with shower. The bungalows are fitted with a zinc roof which means you will be able to listen to the soothing sounds of the jungle rain in addition to the sounds of nature to enchant your dreams. Each cottage is set up for double occupancy with a queen & twin bed in each suite. Temperatures generally stays between 77-89 degrees Fahrenheit / 23-31 degrees Celsius year round regardless of the season. May is a seasonal transition into the rainy season which is a vibrant time of the year when the plant-life truly begins to come alive & thrive.  Each ticket includes shuttle to and from the airport and a travel meal along the way, accommodation, daily plant-based meals & desserts, coffee & tea, filtered water, daily yoga classes, rituals & ceremony, a 60-minute massage, all excursions, and a private bike rental to explore the nearby beaches and shops on your down time. Choose between a day of surfing or snorkeling, Enjoy an evening of music & dance with a private performance by a local Calypso band. For double occupancy, if you are coming with a friend (or 2) you'll be able to share a suite, and if you are traveling on your own you will be paired up with a new friend. Flights are additional and will need to be booked separately, arriving in San Jose at the Juan Santamaria International Airport before noon on our arrival day. A group chat will connect us all so that we can discuss and arrange for flights and other details

No previous experience with yoga is necessary and everything we lay out on our daily itinerary is optional. This is your vacation and we want you to enjoy it your way! If you would prefer to sleep in instead of join the morning meditation or yoga class, you are more than welcome to do so. There will be plenty of downtime to enjoy the beaches, a good book, an afternoon nap, a massage, soul chats, or anything else you'd like to do. This is a week for us to be immersed in presence, nature, and community and while there will be something on the schedule each and every day, we will be on island time and taking everything slowly & mindfully. We are so excited to take this adventure together!
