An Elemental Journey

An Elemental Journey is an opportunity to connect deeply with nature, ourselves and each other. To inhale pure life and exhale the pressure and stress of the modern matrix. Together we will discover tools to embody the qualities of the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Earth and Ether. Realigning and balancing these primal forces in our being and life


On this journey we will…

  • Immerse ourselves completely in lush jungle, beaches and rivers in an off-grid permaculture on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica

  • Learn beautiful practices for self-inquiry and transformation in daily workshops

  • Share live music every night

  • Experience calligraphy yoga, movement rituals and ecstatic dance

  • Join in group breath work, sound journeys, and meditations

  • Fellowship at a full moon fire celebration

  • Reset the mind, body and spirit in a sweat lodge

  • Connect deeply in a Costa Rican sacred plant ceremony

  • Nourish our bodies with lovingly-prepared, gourmet organic food from the jungle farm at Punta Mona

    About your hosts…

    Shivani Ma began her inner journey in her early teenage years with silent meditation practice, psychotherapy and study of yoga philosophy at a wisdom school and ashram. These years focusing strongly on self-inquiry led her to express her longing and remembrance of the heart through mantra music (kirtan), and sacred chants. She then travelled to study mantra and nada yoga (yoga of sound) in India. Shivani is thankful to bring sound healing, vocal improvisation, emotional healing group therapy, breathwork, yoga and conscious movement to this journey. And to share the call of her heart to connect people to the elements and the deeper meaning they contain for each of us in our everyday lives.

    Drew LaPlante is modern day troubadour, fire keeper and friend. He writes and shares heart-centered music that carries a unique frequency. His journey of self-discovery brought him from Northeast Ohio to the jungles of Costa Rica 7 years ago and his work with sacred plant medicines began over 15 years ago when an experience with psychedelic mushrooms cured his near-debilitating depression. The Midwest upbringing and consciousness-expanding work allow him to be a bridge between the Western world matrix and the call to spiritual awakening. He looks forward to learning with everyone and sharing a lot of love and positive vibrations.

    Shivani and Drew will be joined by some dear, divine friends who will help guide this journey in unique and beautiful ways. We will be sharing more specifically about each of them over the next few weeks.

    Adventure with us this October to rest in the nurturing nature of Punta Mona. Let's remember together to celebrate life and cultivate a deeper connection to our bodies and hearts. Strengthening the connection to ALL through authentic relating, music, prayer, sacred space and celebration.

    Reset. Rest. Recharge. Remember how to live the Pure Life. Pura Vida!!
