I can’t speak highly enough of this place – I honest-to-god feel like a different person coming back from my trip at Rythmia. First off, the staff are absolutely amazing – every single person knows your name, they’re friendly, incredibly helpful, and there to assist you in any way that you need. All of the staff are there to get you whatever you want, whenever you want it – it’s wild! The food is great – as a vegetarian, leaning vegan, it’s so great to have tons of delicious, healthy options to eat every meal. The juices are to die for, and there are always lots of great snacks as well for any time you’re hungry. There is a complimentary shuttle from Liberia airport to the resort. The actual resort is beautiful – about a 10 minute bike ride (or free shuttle ride) away from the beach, a pool, sauna, hot tubs, mud bath (!), fantastic massage therapists, very nice individual bungalow rooms, a yoga space, and a gorgeous ceremony room. It’s quiet, peaceful, and at night the stars are to die for.
The (shaman therapy) ceremony – there aren’t words. It can be a bit nerve wracking to go into an experience like that, but knowing that you’re completely taken care of (doctors on staff, medical intake prior to the plant (therapy), your own individual comfy cot with blankets, pillows, eye masks, etc) is so comforting – it allows you to go deeply into the medicine experience trusting that you have support. The shamans are all uniquely amazing people, each creating and holding space in their own way to weave together a powerful group and individual experience. I went to Rythmia very unsure and doubting I’d even participate in Madre (shaman therapy), and it was hands down the most powerful experience of my life. Like 10 years of therapy in less than a week!
I can’t recommend this place highly enough if you are looking to create transformation, healing, and a newfound level of joy and connectedness in your life.
