Take this time for you and dedicate this retreat to your holistic well being and remembrance of Self. Recharge physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Immerse yourself in the healing jungles and waters of Costa Rica and fill your cup.

Awaken & Restore with daily yoga, meditation, sacred movement, transformative ceremonies including a traditional sweat lodge experience next to the Diamante (diamond) river, women’s circles and nature adventures like waterfall hikes and beach trips.

The sweat lodge ceremony is a symbolical return to the womb, and an invitation to deepen your connection with the womb of the earth, the celestial womb of creation and your own womb blueprint. Be supported as you purify, pray, and release to mother earth what is not serving you. You will emerge from this ceremony with a sense of renewal and rejuvenation.

There is also ample time built into the retreat to relax, rest and rejuvenate. Read in a hammock, lounge by the pool, treat yourself to a massage or take a nap.

Lacey set us on a journey of self discovery that enabled each one of us to connect with our true self on such an intimate level. For me it was a magical heart opening experience that allowed me to step into all that I am, a Divine feminine being with courage and inner knowing. Lacey is a true goddess! Her divine light is honest, pure and shines so bright with every person she meets, and with each offering she shares for the betterment of humanity.” ~ Kerri T, Canada

We are Rising

Women of the world
May your stories be told
and your voices be heard.
May you shine like the moon,
fly like a bird
on wings of liberation.
Daughter of Love,
Mother of Creation.

We will rise
when we listen to the hearts and the way of the wise.
The flames of transformation
we will rise
from out of the shadows and into the light.

May all our wombs be healed.
May our love, truth and beauty be revealed.
May our mind-bodies be respected
May our sisters, daughters, mothers
all be protected.

Let us Rise.
Hear our cries.
Let us Rise.
We are Rising.
We are Calling

We will rise.
Humble to the earth to hear her cries.
Let us join our hearts and voices,
and unite.
It’s time to take a stand for the sacredness of life.


~Mary Isis

This retreat is carefully curated to be a safe, nurturing and welcoming container for transformation, healing and joy for any woman who feels the call in her heart and womb.

By participating in the daily program, ceremonies and nature based offerings, you are offered the opportunity to :

TRANSFORM & RELEASE any heavy emotional layers of tension, fear, grief, sadness, worry, anxiety, anger, stress, illness, pain or stagnant energy held in your body from these potent times of planetary change and rebirth.

RESTORE & RELAX as you come home to Nature and the healing powers of the elements. Remember what it feels like to breathe fresh air deeply, to feel your bare feet on the earth, to feel at ease in your body and mind in a quiet sanctuary, to immerse yourself in waterfalls flowing from fresh mountain rivers, to relax and feel the sun on your body, to sit around the fire under a starry night sky and connect with sisters, to feel grounded and centered exactly as you are. Reset your nervous system and realign with tranquility.

EXPLORE all that is AWAKENING within, and around you, as we call forth the wisdom needed to birth a conscious way of being, anchored in Truth & Harmony. Through daily women’s circles or transformative ceremonies, you will remember who you truly are and welcome all of yourself home.

You are welcome exactly as you are!

Our Sanctuary: Farm of Life

Farm of Life, nestled in the middle of the jungle at the top of a mountain, makes it the ideal location for our retreat. This gem is located in the Southwest coastal region of Costa Rica, near the Pacific Ocean, Dominical beach and the mountain town of San Isidro. During your stay at Finca de Vida, bask in the high vibrational elements of the farm, feel the nourishing tropical breeze, listen to the symphony of innumerable birds & insects, watch the mesmerizing dance of the butterflies, dragonflies & hummingbirds.

This magical property bursts with radiant, fragrant flowers and lush gardens, towering ceiba trees, and flowing crystalline waters. Connect with Mother Nature and be nurtured by barefoot walking, sun gazing, breathing in fresh mountain air, hiking through the jungle trail, eating off the land and drinking pure spring water. Witness unforgettable sunsets and the mystical, shapeshifting clouds. Every moment at the Farm, everywhere that you look, all that you hear, touch, taste, & smell is an opportunity to experience pure wonderment and awe of this magical slice of paradise.

“From my own experience, the greatest way to truly nourish myself holistically {body, mind and spirit} is to connect with nature through the elements, plants and animals. I want to remind you of the magic, healing and wisdom that is always available to us in the natural world.

It is my absolute honour to extend this invitation to reconnect you with the Greatest Mother: Mother Nature, and I could not think of a more magnificent place than the Farm of Life, in Costa Rica. This serene sanctuary, a place of peace and beauty, is where we will relax, restore, rejuvenate and come back into harmony with nature.” ~ Lacey
