I attended a retreat called "Jungle Alchemy" at the Sanctuary at Two Rivers in February 2013. It was an amazing, transforming experience.
The Sanctuary is lovingly located on the Nicoya Peninsula in between two rivers and next to the Pacific Ocean. It is very remote, while at the same time luxurious. I stayed in a jungle treehouse built on stilts with mostly screens for walls - a study in harmony with the jungle. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, 100% green, simple and beautiful, while nestled within the retreat gardens and the jungle landscape. At all times I felt safe and cared for while at the same time immersed in the wild. It was exhilarating!
The staff was professional, efficient, and kind. The love and care that went into the design and maintenance of this beautiful place was evident in every flower, every detail. We were treated to the most delicious gourmet vegetarian food I have ever experienced. Each meal seemed better than the last - 5 star quality to rival any restaurant in the most sophisticated city. Practicing yoga, meditation and dance in the Pagoda was more of the same - a beautiful, transcendent, spiritual experience.
We also experienced amazing beauty treatments crafted from local ingredients amidst a backdrop of river waterfalls. Need I say more?
I am currently a city dweller who loves nature, fabulous organic food, and is passionate about my own spiritual growth. For me, this was a sacred, beautiful, perfect place. I am so very grateful to the teachers, the staff, and the jungle for making such a difference in my life.
I am already planning my next retreat :)
