Costa Rica Plant Spirit Medicine Retreat

A week-long course in plant spirit healing and tropical plant medicine, located at Punta Mona, an 85-acre organic farm and Center for Sustainable Living and Education located on the southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Two week long courses are being offered to those interested in learning about the medicine of tropical plant species from around the world, exploring their cultural history and ancient medicinal uses.

Each course will focus on the ecology, history, and ethnobotany of culturally significant tropical plants, hands on medicine making, and an experiential process of forming relationships with the plant spirits of the rainforest. Courses will be a combination of plant walks, medicine making, plant spirit journeys, and explorations in ethnobotany.



Yoga. Meditation. Interconnectedness.


Come experience your yoga by venturing off the grid and exploring one of the world’s most biodiverse ecosystems.

The retreat will begin and end in the mountains above Costa Rica’s capital city of San Jose, in a town called Heredia. Danielle’s alma mater, Whitworth University, operates a stunning 27-acre campus alongside Costa Rica's renowned Braulio Carrillo National Park, a dense virgin cloudforest that is home to more than 650 bird and mammal species as well as the 9,534-foot inactive Barva Volcano. We will then continue on to Punta Mona, an 85-acre off the grid, family owned environmental education center, botanical collection, permaculture farm and eco-lodge, dedicated to sustainable ways of living.
