Soltara at Playa Blanca – New Year’s Eve Retreat 2023
December 28, 2022 - January 2, 2023
Looking to start 2023 with clarity, intention, and connection?
If so, our team of loving, compassionate facilitators and healers invite you to our coastal haven to support you as you dive deeply into your process, welcoming the new year and integrating the past year with community and medicine.
The turn of the year is always symbolic and a special time at Soltara. Alongside a community of like-minded souls, together we celebrate it in a way that encourages catalytic positive change in our lives.
For many, this past year (and more) has presented unique challenges. How can we heal from, integrate, and utilize the insights and lessons gained from our experiences and effect positive change?
For those looking to be supported in this journey, we’ll be gathering at our oceanside haven for some deep introspection, cleansing, and goal setting as the year 2023 befalls us. Together, we’ll step into the new year with more energy and clarity than we had in the year past; with a renewed grasp on our lives, our health, our well-being, and our futures.
Join us in Playa Blanca to ring in the new year. We’ll have ceremonies on the three nights leading up to the new year, with our final ceremony on Dec 31, to begin 2023 with a clear mind and an open heart. On the final evening, January 1, we will have a special (non-medicine) ceremonial gathering to integrate your experience, welcome the new year with your fellow passengers, and visualize your path forward for 2023. Afterward, spend time together or with yourself, under the stars, wading in the ocean, and sharing songs by the fire. By the end of the retreat, you’ll be ready to start making the positive change you desire in your own life and the world around you.
We look forward to supporting you in your journey.
Tucked into the seaside cliffs of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, Soltara Healing Center offers a variety of healing modalities and the space for you to let your intuition guide your process.
