We Invite you to 
Costa Rica for our
Transformational Retreats
This Winter 2023 

This Winter we shift our annual Expansion Retreat to a new location with a new name and Energy. Embodied Evolution is exactly the energy we are emitting and inviting you into at an incredible new experience of a lifetime!


For the past 5 years we have been down in the Diamante Valley of Costa Rica, which was magical, and a heart-opening experience that we will never forget. Now we can't wait to invite you up the Coast to the Jungles of Nosara.

We will be hosting you at the beautiful The Sacred Playground Retreat Centre, which is a sanctuary, a refuge and a training ground for the mind, body and Soul. Located in the sacred valley, just north of Nosara, nestled amongst the jungle and amazing Nosara river. This five-acres of fruitful organic land features an open-air dinning space/gathering centre, a natural pool, lotus pond, botanical garden, movement course, green houses, food forest, luxury casitas, glamping and multiple sacred ceremony spaces.


The Sacred OutdoorTemple at Sacred Playground is a beautiful open air temple, where we will have our sacred plant medicine ceremonies, enveloped by the sounds of the rainforest. We will also be partaking in a Sweat Lodge ceremony guided by the grandfather plant medicine, San Pedro. During our stay, we will enjoy dawn and/or dusk embodiment practices and workshops to continue connecting deep, to move energy and to raise our vibration.


Sacred Playground has beautiful accommodations. The vast facilities include showers with views of the jungle, an expansive outdoor temple, private nature; pool, private river access, nearby waterfalls and numerous hiking trails.

The beautiful yoga deck, kitchen and lounge will be where we gather to connect, eat, play and share.

All packages includes 3 nourishing high vibe meals a day, made with locally grown organic fruits and vegetables, and prepared with love to keep us balanced and clean throughout our stay.


Why Journey With Us?

Our team of holistic practitioners and tribe of participants will be with you to support you before, during and after your journey. We are big on building community and over the last 6 years have gathered hundreds of people throughout our retreats, offerings and ceremonies around the world.

Your journey starts with the moment you answer the call. We aim to prepare you with a preparation package to have you ready for smooth sailing. We offer an orientation and meeting via Zoom with our facilitators and participants and a pdf package with preparation prompts, tools and practices. During this meeting, we can address any questions, intentions or thoughts you might have on the upcoming journey, and ensure you are preparing properly in the weeks prior to the retreat.


We can help you find a flight that aligns and help to arrange for transportation to and from the airport to Sacred Playground (flight + airport transfer not included in price of retreat). During your stay in Costa Rica, we will be coordinating a daily schedule crafted especially to enhance and support the healing experience. All of our activities are optional, so you can feel free to be in your flow.

After the retreat, we hold integration circles, online, or in person where the group can touch base and connect and share their progress after the ceremonies. We provide you with an aftercare package with integration tools and practices to continue supporting you on your Embodied Evolution. We also offer a one on one check in call to ensure you are supported as you transition back to wherever you are going. We will always be available if you have any questions regarding integration!

Shamanic Plant Medicine Ceremonies

Your profound healing journey is centered around the safe and sacred Shamanic Plant Medicine ceremonies and a Sweat Lodge ceremony, which will be led by world-renowned facilitator with decades of experience. 

These healers specialize in facilitating growth and expansion, using ancient knowledge to help you detox, break societal habits and reprogram mental and emotional patterns.

We have also arranged for expert healers from several modalities to provide further support for our guests. (optional)


This holistic package can be enhanced with:



-Acupuncture (Esoteric, Sacred Geometry)

-Somatic Breathwork

-Grounded Spiritual Life Coaching

-Chakra Awareness & Harmonization

-Trauma Informed Coaching


The shamanic plant medicine ceremonies and daily programming are just the beginning of this trip of a lifetime. During our stay, we will also take time to connect with the land around us. We have carefully chosen these experiences to support the integration process that we believe is a very important part of the sacred medicine path.


Embodied Evolution  Excursions
Beach Day

Enjoy the tranquil and warm waters of the calm Pacific Ocean during our day trip to a beautiful, serene beach in the Nosara region. For lunch, we will have a delicious picnic on the beach, complete with an array of local fresh fruit!

Swim, splash, walk down the coast, or just lie around on your blanket taking it all in! This is a day for you to integrate however you feel best. We'll bring instruments and a speaker to enjoy some daytime music, and then watch the incredible sunset together to end the day. 

Waterfall Hike

Enjoy a mindful and silent walk/hike through the river to a secluded river where we will be present to Pachamama and her beautiful plants, birds, butterflies and creatures (don't worry you'll be safe). Cleanse in the river as you clear away energies and emotions that no longer serve you. Allow the nature sounds to give you the most harmonious soundtrack to this walking meditation experience.

Our Acommodations

Our Luxury Casita, is Sacred Playground's high end accommodation with A/C, a Queen sized bed, an indoor bathroom and your choice of your private indoor or outdoor shower. With two sets of big and wide glass sliding doors you get to take in a beautiful view of the property and lush green forest. You have the luxury of your own room and space to cozy up with a book or to do your own practice on your private deck.


The Sacred Dome, is a great accommodation that gives you a great mix of rustic and luxury. With the cool and enclosed geometric shape you still get a great view of the property and jungle. Stay cool with fans or with A/C and enjoy a wrap around deck that gives you space to just relax and listen to the sounds of nature. You are only steps away from your outdoor shower, and communal set of rustic washrooms that are pretty high end for being in the middle of the jungle. 


Nature's Glamp, is the most affordable accommodation which gives you a more rustic experience. Our enclosed tents provide you a humble yet a comfortable option to stay with us on our property. If you're going to tent, this glamping experience is the way to go, with a comfortable bed and soft linens, this may be your best experience yet.
