  • The Goddess Garden, Playa Grande, Cahuita, Costa Rica
  • Jun 6 - 13, 2020 (8 days)

Event Highlights

  • Get support and guidance in your path to awakening. Awakening is not a binary state, but a gradual evolution. Should you be in the beginning of your process or already further in your path, YogAyahuasca will accelerate your journey and teach you some essential skills to enhance your spiritual practice.
  • Raise Your Awareness. Awareness of yourself, your body, your thoughts, your emotions, your energy, your chakras, your resistances. Awareness of what is around you, the healing power of nature and the way you relate to it with all of your senses.
  • Experience higher state of consciousness. The ayahuasca ceremonies will provide you the opportunity to experience higher state of consciousness. The integration program, composed of breathwork and yoga, is specifically designed to integrate these experiences in your spiritual practices. You will learn how to access a such higher state of consciousness by yourself.
  • Dissolve inner resistances. Inner resistances are blocking the natural flow of divine energy in your body and restraining your connection with your higher self and the divine. By dissolving resistances, you can improve the connection with your soul and with the divine
  • Reconnect with nature. Nature has a natural tremendous healing power. Modern life made people lose this connection and so stop benefiting from it. At The Goddess Garden Spiritual Retreat Center, you will have the opportunity to reconnect with the earth, the forest, the sea, and free animals living in their natural habitat.

About This Event

The one week YogAyahuasca retreat is an experiential journey into Source. It is designed to give you the experience and the tools to take your yoga, meditation and spiritual practice to a deeper and higher level.

During the immersion you will practice the deep teachings of yoga and ayahuasca plant ceremonies. You will be safely, lovingly and respectfully guided by healers, teachers, and authentic shamans as you journey into deeper connection with yourself, with the Divine Source within you - the source of healing, insight and transformation.

The yoga and breathing sessions are designed to help you, in a very real and concrete way, to navigate and integrate your inward journey before, during and after ayahuasca.

“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.” – Rumi

Venue Highlights

The Goddess Garden is a magical place, where the rainforest meets the Caribbean Sea. It sits in the middle of a centenary forest with some trees more than 300 years old.

All our facilities are in the middle of the forest to allow our guests to benefit from the healing power of nature. Our yoga studios are surrounded by centenary trees, plants and wild life. During your practice, the healing energy of nature boosts the aura, balances the chakras and supports the flow of life energy. I feel, as many others who have attended retreats here, that my spiritual practice reaches a higher level in this special energetic place.

From the property, a 5 minutes walk leads you to a pristine beach 10 miles long. The only human presence you will likely find is yourself and your group. Our guests love doing their morning meditation on the beach, benefiting from the sunrise and the relaxing sounds of the waves.

At The Goddess Garden, you can relax into nature, rejuvenate, do your practice and tap into a deeper connection with your inner Source.

You can also explore the Carribean coast with organised eco tours, adventure activities or spending time in the best beaches around.
