FRESH OFF our 2018 retreat at the Diamante Center in March, we are excited to announce a new retreat at the Diamante Center for March of 2019.  If you're looking for adventure, healing, yoga and  regenerative detox than this is the place to be. So many people had such incredible breakthroughs that we wanted to post this retreat as soon as possible to begin gathering the tribe for next year! People can talk about transformation but when you forage your own dinner in the jungle and meditate at the top of a 600 foot waterfall, something in you awakens and who you really are emerges. Dance by the fire, sleep under the stars, eat the most delicious exotic fruits of your life, swim in the river and be a part of a community where you are celebrated for sharing your true self! Its no wonder Costa Rica is a blue zone where people regularly live over 100 years! The vibration of this is palpable. Everything vibrates higher here and you can feel the living light in all of nature in constant communication with you - from the hum of the cicadas to the calls of zone-tailed hawks! Being immersed in the jungle, far from wifi, you return to the harmonic state of being that nature intended.

  We begin the retreat with a beach day at Dominical with surfing, exploring local crafts and a vegan feast at Mongo Congo! Then, we take the half hour ride to the retreat center for sunset!

Testimonials:

“This retreat was one of the most powerful experiences I have ever participated in. It provides an opportunity to surround yourself in loving kindness, and healing energy, while embarking on a journey with like-minded and open-hearted souls. You achieve deep connection to the earth, to each other, and to yourself through multi-modality exploration including nutrition, yoga, meditation, sound healing, and friendship. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone interested in embracing and achieving their highest self through spiritual awakening, deep healing, connection, community, and everlasting empowerment.”

~DR. LISA HAMMOND, MD

 

“I enjoyed every moment of yoga sessions with live healing sounds played by Brian. Every class brought different energy and sound and atmosphere which made me feel rooted, centered and restored.  I had so much joy out of every class, the length of the sessions were perfect. With all the planned activities, I still had enough free time to explore and experience Costa Rica. I wish more people could experience such a gathering of spirituality and self exploration. Magical trip! Thank you”

It all started when…

Caileigh and I met some friends at a vegan restaurant who were headed South to the Diamante Valley. We tagged along and drove through the magical cloud forest of Monte Verde and arrived by the beach of Dominical by nightfall to drink the water out of coconuts that were bigger than our heads! The very next day we learned that Upward Spirals (upwardspirals.net) - a social-benefit organization - was having a free community day at the Diamante Center. The three days we spent there was a vision of what life could be!

We got to stay in a beautiful cabina and share in music, food and spiritual/ecological knowledge with the local community. The Diamante Center was a whole new world for us -beautiful sounds of nature, foraging for fruit and swimming at the top of the awe-inspiring Baru Falls which was right at our fingertips! We loved meeting so many beautiful souls that shared our vision for a sustainable lifestyle where we could all thrive by supporting ourselves and each other by sharing our gifts fully! We all spent the first half of our lives developing skills to enter a society/workforce that does not resonate with our souls or help us thrive. So, we loved that community day was a magnet to attract the people and energy to create the sustainable world we we actually want to live in. Upward Spirals gave us this beautiful three day template of paradise to

Working with Happe, Eric and Zander of Upward Spirals has been a dream come true. Upward Spirals directs the Diamante Solution Center, a 'template' education and retreat center committed to co-creating a regenerative future for all life. We are so blessed to be a part of this vision!
