7-Night Retreat

February 11, 2023-February 18, 2023

Mystica Lodge & Retreats

Join us in the heart of Costa Rica’s spectacular “Blue Zone” for a week of deep rejuvenation and ancient teachings. Nestled on a hill in the lush valley overlooking the vast Arenal Lake and impressive active volcano, this magical retreat is medicine for the heart, body, and soul.  This beautiful sanctuary is located in the midst of a vortex of energy that deeply supports personal growth, transformation, and inspiration.

Your retreat will be a mindful blend of energy healing classes, workshops, excursions and practices designed to rejuvenate you to the deepest levels and awaken your own “inner wisdom”.  Be prepared!  You will return home with a profound awareness of your own healing potential and abilities.


Ayurveda

Known as the “Science of Life” or the “Wisdom of Longevity”, this 5,000 year old body of knowledge is still the most widely practiced medicine in the world. Delve into the basic yet deeply profound principles of Ayurveda with interactive workshops focusing on:

  • Your personal “constitution”/ true nature
  • Daily routine ~ Dinacharya ~ for improving and maintaining health
  • Self-body massage with warm oil ~ Abhyanga
  • Experience The Six Tastes of Ayurveda
  • Vedic Psychology ~ Mind & Body Connection

Yoga

Go beyond the traditional yoga class and delve deeper into awareness of Self as we weave together the ancient knowledge of Ayurveda, the “Sister Science” of yoga, and the timeless teachings of Masters across numerous styles of practice.  Expect deep relaxation and rejuvenation, enhanced life force energy and profound self-awareness as we explore:

  • Pranayama
  • Asana
  • Inquiry
  • Meditation
  • Ayurvedic constitution-specific yoga practice  


Qi Gong & Traditional Chinese Medicine

Qi Gong, an ancient Taoist practice and foundation for modern acupuncture, martial arts, and Chinese Medicine, combines intentional breath, movement, and meditation to powerfully move and strengthen the “qi” (life force energy) in one’s body.  This gentle yet potent practice invigorates the vital Qi, helping to correct imbalances and dis-ease at all levels: physical, emotional and spiritual.  

During this retreat, we will learn foundational Qi Gong practices for:

  • Self-healing, grounding, and improving energy levels
  • Energetic protection and clearing
  • Managing oneself as an empath / highly sensitive person  

Additionally, we will learn some foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory as it relates to personal constitution and energetic balance.
