Standing in my captivating yoga platform in the sky, I am enveloped by fascinating sights, extraordinary sounds, and the palpable energy of exotic wildlife, jagged mountains, endless ocean and a 1,000 shades of green. The Prana so thick, so full, so rich that it fills every cell of my being.
I inhale… as I seek meaning, seek purpose, seek to understand. I feel my breath deeply in places that have been hiding for as long as I can remember. Something awe -inspiring enters my soul. It is unfamiliar. It is truth. I welcome it with arms wide open.
I exhale… as I seek to explain the unexplainable.

Forest Bathing: Deepening Connection with Nature, Other, and Self
February 9 – 16, 2019
Our modern lifestyle of information overload keeps us in a perpetual state of anxiety and deprives us of meaningful nature and human connections. And yet, intimacy with nature, others, and self has the power to heal, inspire, awe, and transform our world: from the inside out.
Join the director of the award-winning film Love Thy Nature – narrated by Liam Neeson – and Manuela Siefried – both certified nature therapy guides – for 8 days of sacred nature immersions to reset your life anew.
Be pampered! We will pick you up at the San Jose airport and will fly you back 8 days later. You’ll join a tribe of nature-connected people on a beautiful expedition heading South. At the first stop (near Uvita), you will experience forest-and-beach immersions, sacred circles with intention setting and story telling, commune with the Ngöbe indigenous tribe, and ultimately arrive at Luna Lodge, this gem at the heart of the Osa Pensinsula. You will discover Luna’s magnificent surroundings, including Corcovado National Park – the most “biologically intense place on the planet” according to National Geographic.
Our goal is to have you experience your relationship with nature like you’ve never envisioned possible – Deeply. Intimately. Sublimely – and through that bonding uncover realizations that will ignite insights for the next steps in your life.
Come as you are!
We support you wherever you are in your life journey. Bring all of you, authentically, and your guides will lead you to partner with nature in a loving, curious, sensorial and imaginative way.
Your touch of an ancient tree, your sensing of night flowers, your listening to a musical stream, your gaze at a curious sloth – those relationships between you and the Costa Rica wilderness is where your healing takes place, vitality awakens, insights emerge, awe transforms, and a sense of purpose, meaning, and belonging flourish to new heights.
An Exceptional Journey!
- Intimate group – maximum of 15 participants
- Intimacy with “primary” forest (untouched by humans)
- Wildlife viewing in nature (no animal captivity)
- Two ANFT certified nature therapy guides

* Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique that is deeply meditative and healing for the body, mind, and spirit. You receive Reiki fully clothed as the therapist uses a series of gentle hand placements. Stress, pain and tension simply melt away. Reiki works by giving a concentrated life force energy to both the chakras and meridians which enhances the body’s natural power to heal. Kathleen is a Reiki Master (Dr. Usui lineage).
I am a Certified Forest and Nature Therapy Guide. Prior to becoming a Guide, I worked for several decades leading change initiatives and leadership development programs for corporations, as well as coaching executives around transformational change. As a certified transformational change coach, I knew I had a lot to experience myself to be an even better coach for people. After that, I lived and practiced a meditative yoga technique in India for3 years.
This, ultimately, led to a personal transformation, where creating became an integral part of my life, allowing me to not only become a commissioned artist, but opening me up to creating new joyful experiences as well. Leading a mantra meditation class and facilitating Kirtan chanting were also part of this transformation of myself and my work. I’ve since participated in 17 art shows (2 solo shows 1) The Force of Nature and 2) The Movement of Hope) and am looking forward to many more!
“In Forest Therapy we say that nature is the therapist and the guide opens the doors. I would love to be the one that opens the door for you in the rain forests of Costa Rica in February! You might say I was BORN to do this work.” Kathleen Forrest
Self-Awaken Journey – Breathing in the Heart of the Rain Forest
March 4 – 11, 2019
What if there was something right here that could change the way you see the world and offer you happiness and peace of mind? Wouldn’t you want to know what that was?
We have created a 6-day Retreat right in the middle of the rain forest. This retreat is a combination of Breath work, Forest Therapy & Yoga. We combined these three methods in a way that they support you so you can dive deeply into your personal journey.
We have chosen Corcovado for many reasons. One is to let you evolve with-in the natural world. Nature is a powerful medicine and will support you on your personal path.
If you are ready to open your hearts, to embrace your new potentials, then this Journey could be for you.
National Geographic calls Corcovado “the most biologically intense place on Earth.”
Bring all of you
It is a scientific fact that stress creates reactions in the body which affect our physical, mental and emotional responses. Stress comes from our environment, our body and mostly from our thoughts.
We support you wherever you are in your life. Bring your true authentic self. We will help you step into your unconscious.
During the Breath work, you may experience past memories, emotions, and purifications that might dislodge old habits, patterns and belief structures.
It is a powerful tool for exposing, resolving and integrating the stress & tension that has created stored trauma. We will create for you a safe place to explore, to listen and to heal yourself.
Breath work is a deep meditation.

Living Systems Retreat
September 9 – 13, 2019
Finding solutions to the complex problems surrounding environmental conservation and its relationship to local communities and economies is becoming imperative, as the impacts of climate change threaten the survival of humanity and our planet as we know it. Solving these problems requires us to foster new social and economic systems that are in balance with all life on Earth and regenerative by design.
This 5-day retreat, held within one of the most biologically rich rainforests on earth, the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica, will inspire individuals through an experiential journey of inner and outer systems change. We will showcase a regional systems change approach to actualize a blue/green economy and meet with project leaders to see first-hand how a local community is creating a regenerative future. We will engage in awareness cultivation and nature-connection practices, enhancing our ability to more deeply work with and learn from the natural systems governing our planet. We will also explore how the principles of living systems can be applied to create groups and teams that function as intelligent, self-organizing systems. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to projects in the local community, providing our group with an opportunity to practice using a systems-approach to philanthropy, while giving back to the ecosystem that is supporting our journey.

Launch the next decade with your 2020 vision – a clear intention about who you are and what matters most to you. An intimate gathering of 20 participants from across the globe
Join us for a week of clarity, creativity and connection at nature’s edge, on the Osa peninsula in Costa Rica. In this uniquely vibrant place, we will blend the practices of yoga, free writing, play and communion with nature to create your personal Life Brief, a living document that captures what matters most to YOU. This is an invaluable tool for making decisions and taking action in your relationships, your work and for yourself.
Your discoveries will be captured into language that you will take home with you in the form of The Life Brief – along with a clear set of actions, and a fire in your belly. This is your north star, your deepest wisdom, and the starting place for all that you create for yourself and the world over the next 10 years.
With the 2020 Vision Retreat, you will enter the decade and begin your next chapter with courage, clarity and creativity.

I’m Bonnie Wan, a career brand strategist who has spent the last three decades working with companies to articulate the essence of who they are and why they exist through a tool called the Brief. This simple and sharp articulation of purpose is used to keep brands anchored in who they are while offering a springboard for creative action.
In 2010, I applied this approach to my life and everything changed…my career, my marriage, myself. I call this The Life Brief and have designed a workbook and workshop to help you write yours.
