Osa Peninsula Costa Rica

Your Sacred Self

With Lori Fitzpatrick and Michael Balonis

February 19 ~ 25, 2023

This seven-day journey into your sacred self is grounded in our ancient spiritual connection to the Earth as our original mother and teacher. She is the spirit that calls us home to our true essence. Cradled by Her love, we are safe to rest with our authentic self and truly heal. The people of Central and South America refer to her as Pachamama. She has also been called Mother Gaia and Terra Mater by the Greeks and the Romans. In coming into relationship with Her, all of us
fundamental needs are met. We are inherently interconnected with Pachamama— physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Therefore, she can lead us home when we have lost our way…and we have.


Luna Retreat Sacred Self Sacred Earth

In Partnership with Luna Lodge, together we will explore and move in time with Her ancient rhythms as we commune deep in the heart of the Costa Rican Rainforest in a geographically isolated paradise called the Osa Peninsula. The Osa is one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet. The long stretches of pristine volcanic black sand are set against shimmering, turquoise waters.

The rainforest is abundant and untouched by humanity. The jaguar, scarlet macaw, and sloth monkey call this extraordinary paradise home. It is here, nestled inside the heart of the ancient forest where you will commune with the essence of your spirit, inflame the wisdom of your heart, and reclaim the sacred love for your spiritual self.

Costa Rican's Scarlet Macaw

The Luna Lodge is located within the lush jungle of the Osa Peninsula where comfort meets the wild. This exotic eco-resort is a magnet for self-expression, spiritual growth, and internal transformation. As you ground yourself to nature’s rhythm, you will open up to your most authentic self-expression.

Within this unique environment, you will be guided on a supportive journey to uncover and remove the blockages that are keeping you from living your highest and most noble truth. You will also learn about nutrition and wellness, and identify how to transform your physical health and well-being.

You will be served 3 delicious organic meals each day with much of the produce picked from the organic gardens on-site and also from local growers. Costa Rica has some of the most nutrient rich soil on the planet, producing food that is packed with vitamins and minerals meant to support every cell of your body. The food is prepared and cooked with the utmost care and love by the amazing Luna Lodge Staff. The majority of the staff are native Costa Ricans and they embody the country’s motto “Pura Vida” or Pure Life.

Throughout the week, we will build community and share our authentic selves, as you are guided through daily meditations and supportive yoga practices that emphasize the breath and body connection. Daily spiritual teaching and discussion about enlivening your creative mind, removing your internal blocks, connecting with your quantum cosmic self and healing your physical body will be emphasized. We will explore the wildness of the ocean, hike the lush trails of the jungle, and rest our bones beneath some of the earth’s most stunning waterfalls. We will “bathe” in the forest with the renowned spiritual teacher and healer Lana Wedmore, as she intuitively guides us into the rainforest and leads us to a place of ancient re- membering.

We feel blessed to share this magical place with you! Please join us as we embark on a mystical journey back home, raise our internal vibrations, commune with the ancient rhythms of Pachamama and elevate our consciousness. It is time to return to our Sacred Selves and Return to our Sacred Earth!

Lori is a personal spiritual guide and healer. She is a certified occupational therapist and is currently receiving her Master’s Degree in Consciousness Studies. Lori fosters the mending of old emotional and mental wounds through various healing and spiritual modalities.

She has been helping women heal from trauma due to broken relationships and addiction issues for over 10 years. She came to this work through her own personal healing journey from domestic violence and emotional abuse. Her mission is to give back and empower women to find self-love again.

More About Lori

Lori embodies the philosophy that “in order to keep what you have; you must give it away”. Therefore, she shares authentically and uses the spiritual tools that have been passed on to her. Her approach is down to earth, gentle, and rooted in unconditional love as Lori extends the spiritual gifts that have been graciously bestowed upon her from Spirit.

She works with small groups and in one-on-one settings to guide her clients in identifying the mental and emotional blockages that are keeping them from expressing their authentic self and speaking their truth. She is well versed in all of the world’s religions and has studied them extensively. Lori draws on her Masters level education in melding science and spirituality and the application of quantum physics in the physical world. She is certified in the therapeutic techniques of sacred metals, crystals, and indigenous sound healing and reiki energy work.

Lori channels vibrational healing energy from these dynamic modalities to facilitate the release of deep-seated emotional, mental, and physical blockages stored within the body. Lori intuitively feels the body’s emotional and physical resonance and utilizes her instinctual knowledge and former training to uproot long-standing stress and anxiety that lead to illness and disease. In addition to her intuitive spiritual practice, Lori draws on her knowledge as a practicing occupational therapist for over 20 years. She has an extensive understanding of anatomy and physiology and recognizes the integral connection of the mind, body, spirit phenomena of human health and wellness.

Her holistic approach allows for wholeness and health to be restored within her clients.

Michael Balonis

The best way to describe Mike is “salt of the Earth” He is an avid naturalist and wildlife enthusiast who has been visiting the Osa Peninsula for the past 15 years. Mike is deeply connected with his relationship with Pachamama and holds high the vision that She provides us with all that we need to live as whole, healthy human beings. Mike arrived at his role as a guide for those who are struggling with wellness, nutrition, and physical health through his own extraordinary health transformation. At age 35, Mike was morbidly obese and abusing drugs and alcohol. One New Year’s Eve after another night of excessive consumption, he ended up in the emergency room with rapid heart palpitations and major anxiety.

More About Michael

The year prior, Mike had been sleeping with the aid of a c-pap machine and was on a fast-moving track toward disease. That night, the doctor told him that if he didn’t change his lifestyle his life would end prematurely. These words catapulted Mike into a robust self-guided journey of physical and spiritual transformation. Since that time, Mike has completely transformed his life from one of sickness and ill health to one of health and wholeness. After losing 100 lbs. through slowly converting to a nutrient dense whole food diet and developing a daily functional physical fitness routine,

Mike began his formal training. He received his 200-hour Sivananda Yoga Teacher certification. Sivananda is a classical yoga system founded by the Indian mystic Swami Sivananda who developed the Yoga of Synthesis in which he summarized as: ‘Serve, love, give, purify, meditate, realize.’ Mike has received extensive training in the five limbs of yoga- proper exercise (physical asana), proper breathing (pranayama), proper diet (vegetarian), proper relaxation (savasana) and positive thinking and meditation (vedanta and dhyana). In addition, Mike is a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a certified in sound healer. He and Lori host sound healing sessions together. Mike combines all of his formal training and personal experience to bring a unique approach of wellness to his clients. He believes in the theory of bio- individuality, which espouses that each person’s biological and physiological system is unique and requires an individualized plan of health and nutrition. He fuses physical activity, nutrition, and mental well- being to create a wellness plan that is best suited for each individual. Mike embodies the philosophy of consuming foods in their natural state, unaltered by processing and manufacturing. Much of the foods we consume in modern society are not real foods, but are “pseudo foods”. Mike believes in a food replacement plan versus food elimination plan and creates a simple diet of whole, healthy foods that are provided by the Earth. Mike’s non-threatening “simple man” demeanor makes his clients feel at ease and allows for a climate of authentic sharing.

We are elated to journey with you into the depths of this mystical land and together re-discover your sacred self-supported by the loving arms of Pachamama. Through communing with Her and each other, we will find our way home! We are here for you to answer any questions and will assist and support you every step of the way!

Lori and Mike will assist in arranging taxis and flights to and from the Osa Peninsula.
