Have questions? Ready to commit? Email Kat at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will share all. Thank you!
Come join Abby and Kat in the glorious backdrop of Nosara, Costa Rica for a deep dive into plant medicine, healing, and play! We have found a divine retreat consisting of 4 houses and a main lodge for ceremonies and meditations, all with acres of lush land for us to explore and enjoy. Here is what the retreat offers:
· Transportation to and from the Liberia Airport
· 4 nights and 5 days accommodation at the retreat. Options are king, queen, or twin beds. Some are shared, most are private. You’ll share a bathroom with a maximum of 1 additional room (some have private bathrooms too)
· We’ll enjoy 1 night of breath work, 2 Ayahuasca ceremonies, 1 San Pedro / Huachuma ceremony, as well as daily integration support, meditation circles, and other opportunities to learn and partake in various healing modalities, including Hapeh/Rapeh and Sananga
· Bodywork and Kambo sessions will be available at an additional charge for those that feel called
· Lots of time for rest, play, and a magnificent connection with the land
What Makes This Retreat Special
Abby and Kat, your trusty facilitators, met at Rythmia, also in Costa Rica. They worked there as ceremony leaders for a year or so, and learned a lot about what a fantastically deep and safe retreat should and should not look like. As such, here’s a list of elements that make this retreat exceedingly special and unique:
Intimacy - We have a maximum of 22 participants. The retreat can hold almost 3 times that amount, but Abby and Kat believe that intimate circles are far more safe, impactful, and enjoyable for all. Rythmia features up to 95 in a single ceremony; one of the core reasons they left, as that is very unsafe and impersonal.
Personal Connection - Everyone who comes will get a one on one connection with the facilitators. In almost all other ceremony cycles, sitters have very little opportunity to connect with the people that lead ceremonies in a personal way, and yet that is one of the core elements that helps people feel safe. Abby and Kat meet personally with each participant before each ceremony, listening to fears, intentions, and questions so that each person knows they are seen, heard, and cared for. There will also be lots of opportunities to ask questions and connect with them throughout the retreat.
Value - With the exception of Kambo and bodywork, nothing at this retreat is an add-on. Places like Rythmia charge hundreds more for plant medicine, airport transfers, activities and much more. Not only is the retreat thousands less than a cycle at Rythmia, it also comes with no hidden surprises. We will pick you up from the airport, take you to an incredible, safe, and beautiful setting, feed you healthy meals daily, welcome you to all plant ceremonies, and take you back to the airport safe and sound as well.
Menstruating Women Welcome - Many retreats and ceremony circles forbid women on their moons, including the Colombian tribe at Rythmia, but since Abby and Kat are women who understand how to work with these energies, women in all phases of their cycle are most welcome. You won’t spend time and money preparing for an experience that you are denied; that we promise.
Safety - Kat and Abby are both certified in CPR, and Kat has certifications in AED and triage. Because the circles are small, they can be very hands-on with the tribe and be aware of each person’s state at all times. They will also have 2 experienced and qualified assistants joining the experience too, so all will be very well taken care of.
Depth and Variety - Kat and Abby work with Ayahuasca, Huachuma/San Pedro, Rapeh, Sananga, and other powerful plant teachers, and they offer each of these during the retreat to anyone who is called to explore them. This equates to a powerful and deeply rooted opportunity to be positively impacted by plant consciousness.
Experience - The facilitators are legitimately experienced with these medicines. Kat has been training for almost 14 years, and Abby a decade. Both have learned from incredibly gifted Maestros, and have sat in hundreds and hundreds of ceremonies; both as guides, and participants. And both women continue to do tremendous shadow work and personal exploration of their own. They passionately believe that this is non-negotiable for anyone who works with these powerful plants with the intention of keeping all who join them safe and nurtured.
Fierce Feminine - Finally, it is incredibly rare to find two experienced women doing this work. In a typically male dominated field, Abby and Kat are supremely honored to be women pouring the powerfully feminine medicine that is Ayahuasca. They work in a soft, strong, nurturing way; uniquely equipped to create a very different but very profound way to experience the medicine.
