You will experience 3 renewal ceremonies, which cleanse and prepare the body, and 3 traditional overnight healing ceremonies with ancestral rainforest medicine. These ceremonies have the intention and purpose of facilitating renewal of mind, body, and soul in order to strengthen the root of one's life , clarify one's perspectives  and refine one's intentions.

The Location

Ocean Forest Ecolodge (formerly known as Guaria de Osa) is a remote and tranquil retreat space nestled in the lush jungle of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. The area has been described by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on the planet.” The property is accessible by boat or dirt road (4x4s only) from nearby Drake Bay. 

The lodge offers as accommodation several comfortably-appointed jungle huts scattered throughout the property (private and shared), as well as a central living and dining area, a two-floor Temple space, and beautiful ethnobotanical gardens throughout. An exceptional stretch of gorgeous beach shared only with a few local residents offers breathtaking sunset swims.
