About The Retreat
Once upon a time, there was a chance to pull back the veil of illusion and find the legend of the person within. A reinvention of self and a new story. A chic approach to transformation, and within a stroke of genius, you reclaim your passion, your success and your maximum of joy.
A paradoxical journey into the jungles of Costa Rica to seek the esoteric mirror of who you are. To paint a new self portrait of the person you will become through transformational shamanic experiences.
Awaken your Lemurian past as you gaze over the shimmering blue waters of the coast of Costa Rica. Go beyond the veil through sound and light therapies of the whales to find a place of peace and magic.
On this journey you will conquer, master and love as you reclaim a new freedom from the mind. Seize the present, devour life, embrace a radical decision to create passionately. Celebrate the new you from the top of a jungle drenched mountain overlooking the ocean as the stars illuminate the perfumed sounds of the wildlife.
Hand in hand you celebrate your new elegance, your new friends and the boldness of a new path…..the true origin of YOU.
I dare you to find your esoteric mirror, take the journey back to MU, the place of the mother of pearl where you can walk on the petals of your path and embrace the tropical flower that is ready to bloom within you.
What You Will Learn
MAY 7TH: SUNDAY
Day 1: AWAKENING YOUR INNER SHAMAN – THE CONQUERING OF FEAR
You will land at the San Jose, Costa Rica International Airport either the night before or on a same day morning arrival flight. After picking up your bags and a smooth exit through customs you will be escorted to your private plane waiting to take you to paradise. Enjoy the flight over the lush rainforests of Costa Rica soaked in green as you head to the Whale’s coast. Touchdown! Luxury transportation will be provided to whisk you away to our retreat location where Lori will be anxiously awaiting your arrival. After receiving your welcome bag full of esoteric goodies and other surprises, you will take a guided walk through the jungle to your accommodations.
Dinner awaits in the “heart”, the name of the meeting center where you will get to know your fellow travelers and enjoy your first amazing healthy meal. After dinner you will then make your way to a 200 year old Bali home and welcome center where Lori will prepare you for the week’s activities and share all the juicy details of your journey. Here you will find the jaguar altar where you will begin your journey to the origins of you. Placing your intention into your personal Lemurian crystal necklace the magic begins. Before heading off to bed, you will make an offer of jungle flowers to the spirit of the Jaguar altar, and embrace your new partnership with the energies of the jaguar to walk away from fear.
MAY 8TH, MONDAY
Day 2: SHEDDING AND EXTRACTION
Your day begins with an early morning stretch and healing session with Sheila Sheeran. This will get the native juices flowing and begin to support your body's balance and integrity. After a healthy breakfast, class begins and Lori will share the lessons of the jaguar and how we can completely conquer our fears. The four jaguars will channel special messages for each of the participants so that they are aligned with their spiritual partners for change. Lori, with the help of a local indigenous healer will begin an extraction ceremony as you melt into the practice of shamanic healing. Probably the most powerful experience you will have, with intense drumming and vibrational sound beds, you will shake up your cells and release the toxins of a life that you were never aligned with to live. The great mother serpent will support you to shed your skin and peel away the layers of programming so that you can truly feel the real you inside.
After a delicious lunch of exotic ingredients from the jungle, you will make your way to the local waterfall. Covering yourself in the extraction qualities of the local blue mud, you will begin to sense a birthing of what has been hidden inside of you. A release of all that has held you back from becoming the authentic self.
In the afternoon you will attend one of the many different bliss sessions offered to individualize your journey. Spend time with experts on Vibrational Medicine, Quantum Sound Healing Beds, Personal Photo Sessions with our Retreat Photographer, shamanic massages, body work or a jungle walk to find the elusive poison dart frog, Henna treatments, Hair Treatments or Braiding or a NuVision health session with Melisa.
After a scrumptious dinner Lori will share the history and lessons of the Lemurian people and also channel profound messages from their goddesses. You will learn your Lemurian name at that time and begin to embrace your enchanted life of the past. We will then have a dip in the community pool with the sounds of whales piped into underwater speakers with Dr. Vibe. This experience will definitely take you to your inner ocean, ready for sweet dreams and falling asleep to the night time jungle sounds.
MAY 9th TUESDAY – BACK TO NATURE DAY
Day 3: LEAVING THE MATRIX
Wake to a scrumptious breakfast in the morning jungle mist before we head out to our day in nature. A drive down the coast of Costa Rica will include a stop at the famous Whale’s Tail where we will have a morning stretch and walk. We will then continue on to a pristine river trip into the abundance of nature and wildlife in the Osa Peninsula. Venturing into mangrove forests you will be very surprised at HOW MUCH wildlife you will find there. This trip is dripping with the diversity of flora and fauna and is a photographer's dream. The natural beauty here is a chance to go back to a feeling of truly living with nature in this delicately preserved ecosystem. After our tour we will have lunch before we head back to our retreat center.
Our afternoon will be an unforgettable experience where we will take a shamanic journey to Mu to see our past lives as Lemurians and bring back an understanding of our origin that will energize our ascension protocols. We will visit the Lemurian crystal temple where you will recalibrate the rhyme and rhythm of what is sacred within you. This practice has been an over the top moment in previous retreats. With the opportunity to inject sound into the experience you will achieve your highest level of enlightenment with kundalini swirling amongst your Lemurian spiritual team.
Dinner will be served at the Heart.
We will meet at the Bali Villa center where we will learn about plant medicine and lock in the benefits of healing with nature. Real health begins in the jungle so you will be given the plant medicine that most aligns with your awakening process (through NuVision.) This will be your special plant partner so that you can read about the benefits and build a relationship in a sacred ceremony before retiring for the evening.
MAY 10TH: WEDNESDAY
Day 4: FOOD, FLOWERS AND PLANT MEDICINE DAY
After a healthy breakfast and an especially designed yoga class and meditation there will be a class about plants and food and the spiritual integrity of what you eat and your connection with nature. Our speaker will share the spiritual aspects of food and help you to understand a deeper connection to nature and its abundance. We will then make our way to the local farmer’s market where you will search for the most exotic tropical fruits for a tasting later. On the way home, you will take an adventurous ride through the organic farms, valleys and rivers until we arrive at the largest waterfall in Costa Rica called the Diamond Waterfall for some great pictures and back home for lunch.
Tropical Fruit Tasting and Lunch and maybe a Bliss session?
Late afternoon it is time to embrace your new found esoteric elegance as you dress for the spectacular goddess dinner. Lori, invites you to her new Costa Rican home overlooking the famous whale’s tail. Cool breezes and a starry night full of esoteric sounds and crystal vibrations will be the exclamation point to this incredible journey. The daughter of a local shaman (Jazmin) will prepare a LOVE dinner for the group with plant medicines and continue to raise your vibe into the love space. Celebrate your transformation and enjoy the beautiful friendships you have made along the way.
MAY 11TH: THURSDAY
Day 5: FREEDOM AND TRANSFORMATION
Early morning with Sheila will get the vibes flowing for this transformational day. We will have a class about transformation, self care and freedom. This is the day of the new you. We will prepare a new mask that will represent the real you. With your soul tribe you will realize the destruction of a personality that was never aligned with your soul. Here you will create the expression of the person you have always wanted to be. No more feelings of “stuck” as mindfulness takes over and becomes your secret weapon for happiness. Finally you see life through the lens of inspiration and you are maximizing your internal wellness. Celebrate, the fulfillment of the origin of you is complete.
After a healthy lunch we will drive to the local marina and board the 100 foot Brisas Elegante for a refined experience on a luxurious sailboat. Hoisting the sails we will follow the coastline along the Manuel Antonio beach and some exotic islands. Dolphins, turtles, manta rays and sea birds are often seen. We will anchor in a sheltered bay where you can swim, snorkel or lounge in the ocean. Snorkeling? Yes. While you are enjoying your dip in the ocean our chef is preparing a fresh fish dinner with locally grown vegetables. Our voyage will be capped off with a breathtaking sunset over the Pacific ocean and a toast to the new you and the adventure of a lifetime. Cheers! to meeting your tribe and the amazing memories you get to take home.
MAY 12TH: FRIDAY
Day 6: GOING HOME

*Itinerary is subject to change
What You Will Gain
Drenched in nature, you will finally feel alive, liberated from the dizziness of life.
You will create a new environment to take with you where you can allow clarity to take you to higher levels of human excellence.
Learning the ancient techniques of shamanic journeying, you will visit your past lives and find a new found freedom from the baggage of ancestral programming.
Never return to a past that was not in alignment with your authentic self as you now choose to be sincere and natural and embrace intuition and the rebel spirit within.
Lori Morrison is your guide to a jungle tapestry waiting for you to embrace its natural poetry. She is a rebel at fusing a unique style into the art of leaving the past behind and taking a journey to the heart. A conqueror of illusion who transforms others to allow their instinct to be their guide and to see the unthinkable through a shamanic initiation. Lori is one of few “lighting shamans” who after a two year initiation by Mayan ancestral spirits, discovered human authenticity and the secrets of the earthly journey. She brings a different perspective, style and approach to living and focusing on the beauty of the real you, something that many never discover. She is relentless and invincible helping others to travel into the eternal records of who you are. An explorer, Lori has lived most of her life in Central America where she exchanges her knowing of life lessons from the legacy of the ancient ones, helping others evolve beyond the illusion of suffering and illness using cutting edge technology of “tesla” zero point energy to transform the human hologram.
Sheila Sheeran brings to Costa Rica her shine signature! After studying at the Chopra center to master the teaching of mindfulness and mediation she is also a powerful yet practical yoga instructor, meeting your skill at any level. She is also an impressive healer using the protocols of Dr. Eric Pearl and Donna Eden. Sheila’s goal is to reconnect you to the highest, greatest version of yourself that has always been there, you just need to get out of your own way to remember. When you allow your connection to your true Self, you will SHINE!
We are very lucky to have Dr. Vibe coming to Costa Rica. Truly an alchemic pioneer in the power of sound to heal, he will be ensuring that your cells are dancing and nourished while going deep into the levels of healing that only sound can do. In addition to his remarkable sound beds, Dr. Vibe is a walking quantum teacher, connected to the power of the conscious and a tuning fork of transformative experiences. You will enjoy private sessions, swimming in the sounds of whales, journey work and other innovative experiences to truly “vibe” your way into a new and high vibrational YOU.
