"I need to paint there!"
I saw this view when a friend posted on Facebook about her trip to Costa Rica, and I knew I needed to be there, with like-hearted, creative souls, drinking in the journey in sacred, magical community.
Above all else, I live and breathe for exploring, connecting and creating with others.
In the last few months, I've been collaborating with a circle of women leaders who share my vision. Over a few soulful calls of dreaming and listening, we've pulled our common threads and began weaving.
We respect the sacredness of the animated earth and Her inhabitants - ALL of them, symbiotically joined in divine perfection.
We honor the rich culture, human and nonhuman, born of this spirit, and acknowledge all paths to Awakening and Aliveness.
We embrace our curiosity and imagination to creatively engage and understand each other and our expansion into the cosmos.
In our hearts, we recognize that no matter the space or distance, the world is made of individuals woven together by a myriad of sacred threads, seen and unseen, and we must lean into this life force to heal and transform into the next level of living on earth. Curated from these truths, a magical Soul Journey awaits for those adventurers ready to shake off the dust and engage in the technicolor of mind, body, spirit and beyond. Get ready to hike, swim, kayak, dance, plant trees, meditate, explore, make art, create new friendships, breathe with and learn from the land and each other.
Say yes to explore the wild jungles, race dolphins and whales, sip cacao in ceremony, nest with sea turtles, dance by beach bonfire, and allow the Anima Mundi to transform you from the inside out ...
Say yes to a Creative Soul Adventure of a lifetime.
7 Days, 6 Nights
You'll be greeted in San Jose and whisked away, down the coast. At the halfway point, we'll stop for an overnight rest with a relaxing dinner and sunset on the beach. Rising the next morning, we'll enjoy the final leg of the scenic journey to the Osa Peninsula to settle into the week's tropical and spacious accommodations. Located within the trees yet on the beach, inspiration can be found at every turn. The day will be complete with a welcoming ceremony facilitated by yours truly, and a bioluminescent kayaking tour hosted by a local guide.
The following day will find us learning from local families and experts, and a local nonprofit. Eco-farming and sustainability, cacao, and surrounding plants and animals are among the topics while planting trees, art journaling and a cacao ceremony will assist in expressing and transforming Spirit.
Days 4 and 5 carry us to different worlds, the luscious intimacy of the jungle and the expansiveness of the ocean. Deep connections to land and animals will inspire a day of creative play at the Finca Las Tijeretas. There will be moments of rest, opportunities to witness sea turtle nesting, and time for shopping at the local market in town. We'll even manage to squeeze in a beach bonfire.
The experience unfolds a mixture of adventure travel and art-making, connection and rest. All organic meals and local fruit will be provided by a Costa Rican family, catered onsite. All excursions and cultural ceremonies will be facilitated by local experts and guides. It has been important to curate an experience that supports a smaller economy by staying away from resorts and prepackaged touristy deals.

We have rented two exquisite homes with a variety of views, living spaces and sleeping options. One house will sleep 7-8 guests and the other will sleep 5-6 guests. These unique homes are less than a kilometer away from each other with beach views. They both share the characteristics of a typical beach dwelling for the area: wooded and open with lots of light, trees and animal life. These homes will act as home base for the week. A quick taxi can take you into town for shopping or an easy stroll on the beach is seconds away.
There is a choice of a private king, a private double, or shared room with twin beds, depending on your traveling desires. Friends who'd like to share a room, can sign up for the same type of bed and we'll be sure to assign you to a room together. Most rooms have their own private baths as well. If you are in a double occupancy twin, you'll share the bathroom with your roommate.
The properties are managed by a local couple who will be available and checking in often with the group.
