Bare Feet Retreats

About us

Come remember who you are. Bring your bare feet and return to your natural state of peace. Guided by an international team that includes a shaman, biofeedback clinician and super-food plant medicine wizard, science meets spirituality to assist your remembering.

Through shamanic ceremonies, meditation, biofeedback, super foods, plant medicine ceremonies, nature re-connection exercises, personal consultations and other ancestral healing activities the retreat offers a sacred space for your soul to be freed.

Along with this trans formative intention, the week will include time for excursions in the magical lands of Costa Rica, swimming in the ocean, bodywork and space for non-doing. We hope you can join us to reconnect to your own divinity. With all the love our hearts can gush, come remember who you are with us. ~ Juls ♥

Venue Highlights

We have two beachfront houses that accommodate 8-10 guests for an intimate retreat experience. We are located on a quiet section of Samara Beach. In front of our houses, hammocks hang in the shade of beachfront palm trees and at night the only sound is the tranquil crashing of the waves. A seven-minute beach walk brings you to downtown Samara with its small restaurants and rustic charm.

Bare Feet Playa Samara is a magic place. We look forward to sharing this Paradise with you.
