Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
July 16- July 22, 2014
Led by Costa Rican resident and Biodynamic Educator, Sara Hartley, and Community Herbalist, Gardener, and Yoga Teacher, Helen Leavitt.
Our home base will be Finca Luna Nueva, a Biodynamic-certified farm and eco-lodge in north central Costa Rica. Bordering the Children’s Eternal Rainforest, this farm specializes in growing ginger and turmeric, raising livestock, and is home to hundreds of sacred, medicinal plants. The 55,000 acres of preserved primary rainforest is the largest private reserve in the country.
A common theme in Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophical education is achieving harmonium throughout the day with a flow of activities that create a balance between contraction and expansion. It is the mission of the retreat to form a soft, natural, dynamic atmosphere where we can nurture our physical body, soul, and spirit and also stimulate our senses. The idea of balancing "breathing in" and "breathing out" activities allows us time to internalize our experiences and connect with our intuition.

Daily centering and energizing yoga in the rainforest
Talks on biodynamic farming
Discussion of herbs for everyday health
