Healing with Plant Consciousness - A Transformational Ayahuasca Journey in Costa Rica (sold out)
- Wild Sun Retreat Center
- Santa Teresa Beach, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica
- Mar 23 - 30, 2019 (8 days)
We invite you to embark on a personal journey of healing & integration in the jungle of Costa Rica.
You’ll find yourself immersed in a community of supportive individuals that are healing & growing alongside you. Feel completely safe & contained as you explore the depths of your mind, body & soul with the guidance of our hosts. Do all of this in nature, surrounded by wild animals & rescue animals at the center where we will stay in the jungle. Rise to the sounds of the ocean waves and howling monkeys, start every morning with meditation & positive vibes, connect to nature by playing in the ocean, indulge in organic, local cuisine, learn what it means to build community, integrate your experience with a licensed psychotherapist, & give yourself space and time to HEAL.
With so many ayahuasca retreats out there, why join ours?
EXPERIENCE & SUPPORT
You will work closely with our support team, which has over 25 years combined experience with plant medicine, including a world-class musician/ceremony leader, a licensed psychotherapist, and a vegan chef.
SAFETY & INTIMACY
Our ceremonies are SMALL & INTIMATE! Safety & security is our top priority, as with as creating a safe container within which our guests can go on their journeys. We never have more than 12 guests max per event (versus other centers in Costa Rica that have over 80 people per ceremony!).
INTEGRATION WITH A PROFESSIONAL
Integration is of utmost importance to us! The work truly begins once you go home. The worst-case scenario is for our guests to go home feeling lost or confused about what to do next or where to go, so we incorporate strategies to ensure you return home with the tools you need to implement the changes you want to make in your life while doing so confidently & peacefully. You’ll enjoy group and one-on-one integration sessions with a licensed psychotherapist after each ceremony. PLUS you have the option of continuing your work on-line after the retreat ends with a therapist that understands your path and experience.
Music is integral to any ceremony experience. Our ceremony leader, David Parry, has not only worked with the medicine as an apprentice under Don Jose Campos from Pucallpa, Peru for over 12 years, he’s a well-known ceremony musician who‘s music is inspired by the medicine and takes you on a unique ride that’s been described as “a magical, personal music festival of transformation”. For anyone that’s sat in ceremony with Dave, they can’t imagine sitting with anyone else & he makes the experience simply unforgettable. The music acts as a facilitator to the medicine work and is the perfect complement.
His music is indigenous, new age, and everything in between. You can hear his music here!
WASTE-FREE, ORGANIC, PLANT-BASED
All of our events are 100% waste-free & eco-conscious. We make sure not to use single-use plastics. We use only biodegradable cleaning products. 100% of the produce used is local, organic & plant-based. We personally recycle anything that remains after the event ends.
SUPPORT WILD ANIMALS
You will stay at a resort that is located on a wild animal rescue center, so your money goes towards benefitting animals in need and you get to be surrounded by the energy of beautiful wild animals!
HEAL IN PARADISE
The center is located right outside of the lush Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve where wild animals are abundant. You’ll enjoy outstanding ocean views from the infinity pool outside of your deluxe room.
If being part of a supportive, intimate community while you undergo your personal journey in a tropical paradise sounds appealing to you, then this retreat if for you.

Venue HighlightsWild Sun Retreat Center and Animal Rescue - Cabuya, Costa Rica
Imagine taking a small plane that lands on a landing strip that meets the ocean. Your taxi awaits you & takes you down the peninsula to the rustic road that runs through Cabuya, a sleepy coastal farm town on the Nicoyan peninsula. Your driver turns up a road and you begin to ascend into the jungle, higher and higher.
Soon you arrive to Wild Sun Jungle Resort, nestled in the foothills of the Cabo Blanco National Park in Costa Rica. You enter, and the first thing you notice is that you're surrounded by lush green jungle, breathtaking ocean views, wild animals & gorgeous accommodations. The photos don’t do it justice, as many of our previous guests said!!
You're taken to your bedroom and you set your stuff down to relax. Ahhh... you've finally arrived. Plop down on the luscious bed, kick off your shoes, take a shower and relax with a tropical fruit smoothie before meeting the group.
Throughout the week, you'll awaken with the howler monkeys as you enjoy the comfort of luxury within the peace and quiet of the wild and enchanting Costa Rican jungle. Savor the jungle views during breakfast or from the stunning pool. Look out to the horizon and let your worries melt away as the waves of the ocean roll into the shore. Spend the afternoon bathing in the sun and dipping in and out of the beautiful pool. It's time for dinner, enjoy gourmet food prepared by our private chef poolside and dine to the sounds of nature and the crashing waves in the distance.
Wild Sun is also a rescue center, so we’ll tour the center and all profits to the center go towards the animals and projects!

Menu/CuisineUnhealthy eating habits can affect the quality of our emotional and physical life. Discover how delicious and fulfilling eating healthy can be, and you'll be surprised at how good you feel. We won't be "cleansing" by any means, just enjoying clean, gourmet organic, locally-sourced food from a personal chef (Russell!) all made with love and gratitude. You'll find that eating healthy is not only good for you, but it's also a fun thing to explore! One guest even like 10 pounds after our retreat, accidentally!
