8 days healing with plants and consciousness retreat is organized by wild sun retreat centre & animal rescue cabuya, costa rica. This is an all-inclusive retreat. You are invited to embark on a personal journey of healing & integration in the jungle of Costa Rica.
The retreat is facilitated and supported by a team with more than 35 years of combined experience in plant medicine, it also includes 2 world-class musician/ ceremony facilitators, a licensed psychotherapist and a vegan chef.
The 8 day healing and consciousness retreat is small & intimate, focuses on integration of the participants, music is integral, has 100% waste-free events and is aimed at supporting wildlife.
You will work closely with Rima the Jungle Girl's support team, which has over 25 years combined experience with plant medicine, including a world-class musician / ceremony leader, a licensed psychotherapist, and a vegan chef.
Rima the Jungle Girl's ceremonies are small and intimate! Safety and security is their top priority, as with as creating a safe container within which the guests can go on their journeys. Rima the Jungle Girl never has more than 12 guests maximum per event (versus other centers in Costa Rica that have over 80 people per ceremony!).
Integration is of utmost importance to Rima the Jungle Girl's team! The work truly begins once you go home. The worst-case scenario is for their guests to go home feeling lost or confused about what to do next or where to go, so they incorporate strategies to ensure you return home with the tools you need to implement the changes you want to make in your life while doing so confidently and peacefully.
You will enjoy group and one-on-one integration sessions with a licensed psychotherapist after each ceremony. Plus you have the option of continuing your work on-line after the retreat ends with a therapist that understands your path and experience.
Music is integral to any ceremony experience. Our ceremony leader, Angela Blueskies, is a well-known ceremony musician and leader who‘s music is inspired by the medicine and is a song-keeper for the music.
All of Rima the Jungle Girl's events are 100% waste-free and eco-conscious. They make sure not to use single-use plastics. They use only biodegradable cleaning products. 100% of the produce used is local, organic, and plant-based. They personally recycle anything that remains after the event ends.
You will stay at a resort that is located on a wild animal rescue center, so your money goes towards benefitting animals in need and you get to be surrounded by the energy of beautiful wild animals!
The center is located right outside of the lush Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve where wild animals are abundant. You will enjoy outstanding ocean views from the infinity pool outside of your deluxe room.
If being part of a supportive, intimate community while you undergo your personal journey in a tropical paradise sounds appealing to you, then this retreat if for you.
The centre is run by Rima Danielle who is a licensed marriage and family therapist (in the state of California), a yoga teacher, vegan advocate & retreat leader/host.
Rima work's on-line or in person as a psychotherapist, she runs exclusive, private couples retreat in Costa Rica, hosts plant medicine ceremonies & retreat (and help clients integrate their experiences), and also hosts “The Rima the Jungle Girl Podcast”.
In her words: "I have a pretty interesting story! Since 2012, I've been travelling to and living in Costa Rica. From 2014 - 16, I brokered the $1.8 million deal for the sale of a boutique hotel and then became the manager of that hotel. I managed the hotel, the vegan/vegetarian on-site restaurant and I oversaw the yoga program until the end of 2018. That's how I ended up full-time in Costa Rica! Before that, I was working as a marriage and family therapist in California, as I am back to doing now, but with so many more skills and new experiences to add.
I'm back to doing what I love, which is working with clients as a therapist, healer and retreat leader."
