Embodying the Essence of Life and the
Alchemical Elements of Costa Rica
February 19–28, 2007


April White Cloud, Johanna Carroll and Vanda Osmon

Awakening, Embodying and Honoring the Divine Heart within all Life.

This transformational journey is a living book in which we will experience miracles in the moment and co-create the highest experiences with divine energies. Costa Rica is a gateway to greater personal rejuvenation for the mind body and soul. It is a unique healing land of spectacular natural beauty, unlimited life force and pure pranic energy, which offers a cornucopia of profound spiritual experiences.

As a circle of light of kindred souls we will open ourselves to receive the gifts of nature and activate our cellular wisdom and knowledge by working with the alchemical elements of FIRE, EARTH, WATER AND AIR. We will realize our highest potential through discovery, soul remembrance, meditations, ceremonies, renewal, awe, joy and sacred moments of contemplation. Come join us!


Our journey to Costa Rica continues, this time to the Central and North regions. You are about to embark upon an amazing journey. A portal through time and space with the opportunities to embody the Essence of life and the Spirit within Nature.

We will immerse ourselves in nurturing sacred places where the energies of the mountains, waterfalls, volcanoes, rain forest and ocean provide alchemical transformation into greater dimensions of ourselves. We will explore nature, the great mother beckoning us home, teaching us about the laws of nature, ancient wisdom, beauty, natural vitality, abundance, cooperation and our true potential.

Alchemy is an ancient path of transformation with the power to alter consciousness and connect the human soul to the divine. All those who quest for the truth are really modern-day alchemists. They see truth and ancient wisdom in their everyday world. They practice the art of Divine Alchemy, the power of love, intentions, understanding, and joy to transmute fears and limitations in their lives into golden opportunities of great potential and possibilities. We are currently going through an evolution of consciousness where we are changing on many levels within our bodies, mind and the soul activation of our DNA. A new paradigm is emerging within us and through us that reflect the higher values of authenticity reflected in our dreams and visions.

This journey offers the best of Costa Rica through many unique experiences. We will connect the past, present and future into our lives. We will work with the energies of spirit and have the honor of meeting indigenous leaders and participate in ceremonies that connect Heaven and Earth. We will tap into our creative life force and connect spirit and soul for greater empowerment and conscious mastery. During this journey we will integrate powerful cosmic energies with our stellar origins and transmit our goodwill to humanity.
