A Call from the Jungle

If the whisper of the leaves in the trees speaks the language of your heart,

And the crash of the waves syncs your mind and breath,

If the core of your essence - the natural cycles of our universe -

are asking you to rise to the occasion of your most free being,

We invite you to step into the jungle.

Are the same patterns of self-sabotage getting in your way?

When you imagine your Self worth, does your mind get muddy?

Are you ready to step into the power of truly being your first priority?

The Wandering Collective is honored to hold space for a week-long retreat

at the edge of the jungle and Caribbean Sea in Costa Rica.

Guided by Mother Earth, we will explore our truest nature and how to surrender to our unique calling using the tools of yoga.

In loving awareness, we will gather to release what does not align with our deepest potential.

 
 

Our sacred space to plant new seeds.

The Goddess Garden | Cahuita, Costa Rica

 

We are calling to you if you are…

seeking community and deep connection.

a soul willing to endure the entirety of nature.

thirsty for transformation and willing to release harmful patterns and habits.

*no prior yoga experience is necessary*

The Facilitators

Kaitlyn Bowman & Lindsay Chestnut

Since we first made acquaintance, we have been helping one another on our spiritual journeys.

It is our deepest intention to be a guiding light for souls like us

who continue to weigh themselves down with fear and judgement,

so we may all have access to the freedom of

experiencing the intuitive wisdom within all beings.

 
 

Why Cahuita, Costa Rica in October?

Costa Rica surrendered their army in 1949 to reallocate the defense budget to education and healthcare. This fundamental shift has resonated throughout the land and social scenes, bringing an essence of curiosity, and healing acceptance.

Costa Rica and, more locally speaking, The Goddess Garden are role models for sustainable living.

All food offered at The Goddess Garden is locally and organically grown, as well as prepared with Ayurvedic intentions to instigate well-being from the inside out.

Cahuita’s unique landscape of the wild jungle at the ocean’s edge holds space for transformation that can only occur when we arrive at the edge of two polarities. That is why this area of Costa Rica is home to the most dense population of howler monkeys (the loudest mammal for their size) and the sloth (the slowest mammal on Earth).

October is also within the dry season, so ocean temperatures range from 72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit, and insect populations are lower than other times of year.
