It has been our mission to create a sustainable and ecologically responsible Wellness Center and Community in Costa Rica. That dream is becoming a reality as we have assembled an incredible team, found the most inspirational location and have begun the development of our center that borders Carara National Park.

The rugged beauty of this particular piece of rainforest is truly inspirational and healing. With breath taking ocean views and and stunning primary jungle vistas you will find it easy to connect back to nature and yourself. We are honored to be able to share this sacred space with you as you join us on the journey to cultivating lasting health and wellbeing.
We invite you to come and experience this truly restorative setting as we reconnect with ourselves and nature. The abundance of life, nature and resources on this mountain is something to be cherished and shared with as many who are willing to make the journey. We are creating a longevity living center where people can come and experience a healing lifestyle for retreats or for long term living.
