Join Chelsea and Katie for eight days to nurture the very best of yourself in a gorgeous, isolated setting with nothing but Howler Monkeys and jungle noises to disturb the peace you are given the time and space that we don't often have at home to reconnect with yourself in a soulful, empowering way. We will be here just after the New Year, during the full moon- a perfect time to take a moment to reconnect with what truly matters and how we wish to define abundance in this new year. Sing, dance, share, play underneath the first full moon of the year, over Caribbean waters together with friends, old and new, to celebrate all that we have and all that we have to look forward to. Starting each day with meditation, yoga and a fresh vegetarian breakfast before going to explore the beach, island, farm or jungle, the days will be filled with as much fun, adventure and r&r as you want. Throughout your week we will meet and discuss concepts of our Soul's profile and ways to live a more authentic and abundant life. Each participant will also have the opportunity to receive a Soul profile or Karmic reading to support and facilitate the experience. The evening will be filled with more yoga and meditation as well as other little exercises to build both individual and collective love, joy and power.
Balancing beach time with healthy practices and deep thoughts creates a week that is not only fun and relaxing, but will also bring you closer to the heart of who you truly are.
Punta Mona is an 85 acre off the grid, family owned environmental education center, botanical collection, permaculture farm and eco-lodge, dedicated to sustainable ways of living. Their mission is to provide an alternative to the destructive land use practices taking place throughout Costa Rica and the world. By growing their own food organically, using eco-technologies, and creating a sense of community, they showcase and educate learners of all ages and from all walks of life. The ideals of sustainability, conservation of energy and reduction of waste permeate their everyday lives.
Coming to Punta Mona must be viewed more as a life changing experience. The intensity of the surroundings, where jungle meets the Caribbean Sea, mixed with the energy of the people and space creates the perfect catalyst to bring out the very best in you. The accommodations are rustic: basic cabin style housing with multiple beds per room, solar powered electricity, compostable toilets, etc. But it is in the simplicity that you are able to connect with yourself and others in an honest, more soulful way. There aren't the luxuries of a hotel, but rather the luxuries of the true Pure Vida lifestyle: ample good vibes mixed with an earthy experience that help you to remember what really matters in life. Shared rooms are in the Front House and the Back House, the toilets are compostable systems that are located a short walk outside of the living buildings. Similarly, showers are located just outside of the Front House. Punta Mona is designed with Permaculture functions in mind, attempting to live symbiotically with the natural environment. Many of the principles serve as reminders to us of how to live a less invasive existence and find a deeper sense of personal peace and joy in the meantime. The Caribbean side of Costa Rica is similar to any Caribbean island, the weather changes regularly- there are wet weeks and dry weeks- which of course have a direct affect on the environment.
Punta Mona is a place that changed my life in the most magical ways. It brings together some amazing people and ideas in a beautiful place. It is here that I credit some major positive transformations to have happened as I connected more deeply both with myself and the world that I live in. I hope it will give the same opportunity to you!
I highly recommend that you check out the Punta Mona website for more details on the space and all that they do there to get more excited about the experience! Also, follow Punta Mona on instagram for regular inspiration!
