An Indigenous myth tells us whenever the balance between humans and nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts and return the planet to a state of harmony.
In our Mystic Heart ♥ Sacred Cacao Ceremonies we use pure rainforest grown cacao as a ceremonial medicine to assist in opening the heart and spirit. A strong medicinal Mayan-inspired brew of cacao, along with divinely inspired live music, guided meditation, purification rituals, anointing with blessed oils, healing touch, energy attunements, and inspired movement, to create a uniquely profound ceremonial experience.
A cacao ceremony provides a perfect opportunity to take time away from our daily grind… to de-stress and reconnect. It is the perfect space to switch off from busy-ness and to journey into the sacred space within – opening ourselves to greater healing, balance, love, and spiritual connection. Whether you’re looking to shift an emotional blockage, let go of the past, gain clarity for your life path, or you simply need to lift your spirits, these ceremonies can provide the ideal experience.

Donating your body to medical science in Costa Rica
Following five previous successful visits, staff of the Medical school of the University of Costa Rica will be coming to San Isidro on Friday 21 st February 2020 to enable people who wish to donate their bodies to medical science to complete the paperwork and avoid the journey to San Jose.
If you would like to make this ultimate tribute to the wonderful country of Costa Rica, please contact Sheelagh Richards at email@example.com for further information.
Please help to spread the message around, the University is always short of bodies for teaching and research; the support of our community in San Isidro is very greatly appreciated. And please help dispel the myth that the Catholic church does not approve of body donation – this programme has its blessing and members of our Tico community are equally welcome to participate. Thank you.
Our Ken Lyle is coordinating an extended water fast with Dr. Doug Graham, most of the month of March, in San Pedro.
If you have been following the news, you may have heard that Intermittent fasting and extended water fasting are becoming accepted mainstream treatments. For a great resource, follow the podcast of Dr. Peter Attia, M.D., especially the one with Nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung. As a summary, search out the recent review of Intermittent Fasting's evolutionary basis, mechanisms and results in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Ken has done fasts of 24 and 27 days with Dr. Graham to great overall benefit - one of which led to years of marathon running, as a "Clydesdale", by someone who had been a confirmed non-runner. Ken is also Intermittent
Fasting (eTRF) as recommended by Dr. Fung, with great success.
See http://foodnsport.com/fasting2020 -
Ken is happy to answer questions by phone or WhatsApp +506-8703-0589.
