2024 RETREATS - WE ARE SCHEDULING RETREATS NOW ! KEEP WATCHING FOR MORE DETAILS
APRIL 19 - 28, 2023
In this retreat you will receive Kambo and SomatoEmotional Release (SER) work from two of the most experienced practitioners in Costa Rica. They will take you on a profound 10 day journey of self-discovery and intensive healing.
This retreat is for those who want to shift old patterns and find a deeper sense of inner peace and life meaning.
Darren has been working as a CranioSacral therapist and SomatoEmotional Release Therapist for over 15 years. He has a strong intuition and can help clients navigate their process with trust and in complete confidence. The therapy involves a combination of gentle touch and dialogue between facilitator and client. The client is guided to an area of their body which requires attention. Through further dialogue and careful facilitation, the client is able to hear their body and interpret what it is they are feeling. A natural healing process then ensues which involves physical and emotional release encouraged with further dialogue and expression. The work is life-changing. You will receive 4/5 SomatoEmotional treatments over 10 days. In addition, there is participation in either a group reflection or voluntary share circle and /or yoga each morning.
On alternate days, you will receive 3 Kambo treatments which will be administered by a highly experienced Kambo practitioner following the traditions and doctrines (which includes not exposing himself on social media). Please see details below on Kambo treatments.
The powerful combination of Kambo and SER work has a dual effect. The Kambo will detoxify the body giving a renewed sense of clarity which in turn will aid the listening part of the SER work. This allows you to hear your body, to hear yourself easier and unwind the trauma in the tissue. Trauma held for years is deeply embedded in the body tissue. With this combination of the two modalities there will be less resistance, so a deeper healing and emotional release can take place. This is a unique opportunity to experience these two medicines side by side in a healing retreat.

Kambo, also know by its scientific name Phyllomedusa Bicolor, is a large green tree frog from the upper Amazon rainforest. The Kambo frog has a few natural predators, due to the fact that its skin secretion is poisonous to other mammals and reptiles (but not to humans!!).
The secretion from Kambo has many bioactive peptides and neuropeptides that are known to have positive effects on the human mind and body. Some of the benefits are:
Venom that protects the Kambo frog in the jungle has many potential benefits to people around the world, which is why Kambo is gaining popularity in the treatment and management of many conditions and ailments.
Kambo is administered through small burns on the skin (superficial epidermal level) immediately triggering a variety of beneficial chemical reactions in the human body. It is applied on an empty stomach (no food for 8 previous hours and having 2 liters of water in the stomach that must be drank in 15 minutes). Purging (the elimination of toxins) takes place via a combination of sweating, vomiting and sometimes bowel elimination. Our Kambo practitioner is highly experienced and will guide you safely through the process. You will receive 3 Kambo treatments on the retreat.
