Soltara at Playa Blanca – New Year’s Eve Retreat

December 28, 2024 - January 2, 2025

.
Looking to start 2025 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 gather in the oceanside tropical forest of our Playa Blanca retreat space for some deep introspection, cleansing, and goal-setting as the year 2025 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 Costa Rica 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 2025 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 2025.  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 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 ayahuasca plant medicine ceremonies guided by our loving team of Indigenous Peruvian Shipibo healers and trauma-informed facilitators, alongside a variety of healing modalities and the space for you to let your intuition guide your process. Connect to nature, community, and the Shipibo wisdom tradition in one of the most abundant and biodiverse places in the world, where you will be supported and cared for, before, during, and after your stay with us.

For those seeking an all-in-one retreat to ease the mind while experiencing the full spectrum of healing modalities we offer, this 5-night/6-day package makes the most of our retreat schedule in a focused, intentional program. Upon arrival at our pickup location, you’ll be greeted by our trusted transportation service professionals for a journey through the beautiful rolling hills of Costa Rica to Soltara Healing Center. You’ll also enjoy a 90-minute ferry ride across the Gulf of Nicoya.

After a warm welcome and a brief tour of our center, enjoy a family dinner prepared freshly in our conscious kitchen, and begin your retreat of connection, healing, and medicine.

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU

We are called to serve medicine in sacred ceremony with integrity, humility, and compassion. By creating a safe space and working only with experienced, well-intentioned healers and facilitators, we uphold the lessons of the medicines and build a foundation of mutual trust, authenticity, and respect. We are not gurus, preachers, or enlightened beings – our healers are maestros who humbly transmit the knowledge and healing energies of the plants, and our facilitators are devoted to helping guests face, process, and explore difficult experiences and emotions, handle projections, manage expectations, and surrender to the process. We strive to uphold the highest integrity in everything we do and be a beacon for responsible, safe, and ethical practices, such that our guests feel safe and supported to get the most out of their healing.
