Rythmia is a truly magical place to go and expand your consciousness. It’s hard work but a beautiful process. This is the most comfortable place to be doing such uncomfortable spiritual work. I also can attest that Rythmia is a place of integrity and they actually care about people, even above profits. I was misinformed about a detail that prevented me from being able to participate in 2 of the 4 ceremonies during my trip. Rythmia gave me an entire free week to take the pressure off me - because I was really stressed about getting my miracle in just 2 nights. I never had to ask, the staff is so in-tuned and attentive to the needs of everyone- they knew I needed more time. They made it possible for me and I am forever grateful. The ceremonies were so beautiful and the classes really helped me to navigate the medicine and prepare me. The breath work, yoga and food were all amazing. Initially I was not sure if this would be the most authentic experience but after going thru 6 ceremonies in two weeks, I can only say thank GOD I went there - instead of more rustic type of place. I fully recommend Rythmia- it was above and beyond my expectations.

Property's Favorite Review
Three friends of mine had already been and I saw their miracles so I eased into an open heart and left fear behind as much as I could. It took work, I gave it everything I had. I faced down the inner voices and left them behind me in the fire. I forgave my parents, people that I feel wronged me somehow, and I realized with all-knowing truth that who I was really forgiving is myself and my heart. I see from a completely new perspective now that it is me who I love wholly. I feel softer, easier, I like myself. My group was so impactful and though we all had individual miracles there is a common thread that we shared. We are all on a journey to love ourselves and finding that all together on Thursday night into Friday morning was a joyful experience that I cherish now and forever. I cannot express how important this work is for anyone wanting to go deeper, seeking something that feels out of reach, something that other practices have perhaps opened up an insight into but the door has not swung all the way open. If this resonates with you, you owe it to your soul to go to Rythmia. It is safe and comfortable, and the classes support and guide you. The food is amazing and clean, not once did I crave anything else. The yoga is fun, Victor was my fave! The massages were fabulous, I had 4! The setting is magical. I dug in and did the work, stayed in the Mallorca, and I let the shaman support and heal me.

I you're thinking of doing plant medicine this is the place to go. Everything is thought and taken cared for you so you can totally focus on your healing. Rythmia is safe, powerful and clock work organized. Best place on earth if you ask me!

Firstly, thank you Rythmia for a first time experience with the plant medicine. I'd recommend this to anyone who is going solo for an Ayahuasca experience for the very first time. Rthymia has a relatively comprehensive package that is right for the first timer. Do your research and choose the one place that speaks to your needs, authentically. Do it if you can feel right, without reservation. Be goof to yourself and all around you! Love.

This trip was absolutely life altering. I’ve never met, befriended, and felt so welcomed by a group of people like I was here. The staff was overly friendly and helpful and the other people here became fast friends. I will always carry this trip with my.

I was awarded the Rythmia scholarship in a time that I needed it most. I just lost my stepmom while dealing with other family trauma and other personal issues. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I knew the experience would renew me. Randomly, I signed up for a week that Taita Juanito would be there and I knew nothing about what that meant. To keep this concise, all I will say is that Taita is truly a spiritual force. He led the ceremonies with love, power, and care. I got my miracle!! Which is simply to return to my essence of unconditional love and to be the healer that I was called to be. At Rythmia, I felt 100% safe and supported. The rooms are clean and cozy. The staff and volunteers are truly angels, and the workshops, classes, spa, food, and facilities are 5-star. My favorite part was meeting like-minded people. I connected with so many beautiful souls from all over the world and we are now a family for life. I got soooooo much out of this experience and I will definitely be back. Thank you Gerry for answering this call and showing us what heaven looks like ❤️

This week has been a challenging, difficult, rewarding, liberating, unbelievably profound life changing experience. I cannot express enough the need for any human looking for deep healing, a reason to live or a direction in life to open their minds just enough to at least consider this consciousness expanding experience. You will not regret it.

First class treatment all the way around. The staff are so open and friendly and know you by first name immediately. So personal. The spa is amazing...highly recommend. Pamper yourself...you deserve it. The evening ceremony's are sacred and healing. I got my miracle....more than one! I def recommend coming and will be sharing and inviting friends and family to come and experience. Costa Rica is a very magical and spiritual place. I am so grateful for my time at Rythmia.

You have to take your hat off to the owners of this place. Absolutely hats off. When I listened Gerrys life story, I thought wow.. I need a night out with that guy 😂 My path and life story is very similar to his, but not quite as crazy or extreme. My life at one point was an absolute mess. I have tried every course and therapy session you can think of. I’ve been working to become the better person since 2018 and have been knocking on the door of hope but I felt like it just wasn’t opening for me. I came to Rythmia and I literally felt my soul die and come back to life. I had amazing feelings in the body I had never felt before nor did I know existed. I just thanked the Universe for connecting me to this place. I went for change, and I got a whole lot more than I went for. My mission is to send as many people as I know to Rythmia. I’m looking forward to returning in November with my Mum and my Partner. Thank you to all the staff 💯 💚 Rythmia - I love you 😎
