Authentic Costa Rica Adventures

Lucky for you, your co-host Kirby has called Costa Rica home for the last 3 years. She is a wealth of knowledge of the communities's best beaches and adventures that will leave you feeling like a local. Authentic experiences you wouldn't get if you just "googled it." The itinerary is filled with the best beaches, town trips, waterfalls, and National Park adventures.


Indigenous Led Cacao Ceremony

The Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica is also known as the "Chocolate Coast" for its abundance of Cacao. This sacred plant-medicine experience with song, story, and cacao will be facilitated by Rosa of the Indigenous BriBri tribe. This ceremony is life-changing and a sacred tradition of her clan.

Who Is This Retreat For?

Anyone looking to ritualize their life. Those yearning make the mundane, sacred. The spiritual seeker and everyday human. Someone curious about sacredness and craving connection. All ages, levels of yoga practitioners, and genders are welcome to begin their new year with us.


Ritualize your new year

The Sacred Sanctuary retreat schedule is thoughtfully organized around four guiding themes: Sacred Time, Sacred Space, Sacred Study, and Sacred Wisdom. Through these focal points, we will embark on a journey of philosophy and introspection to uncover the answer to the question, "What is possible for me this year?"
