Retreats & Workshops

Experience Wholeness at Living Forest

At Living Forest Retreat Center and Lodge, we offer an array of transformational retreats and workshops throughout the year to support you on your journey inward. Whether you’re a teacher or practitioner, we welcome you to experience the serenity of Living Forest. As the country of Costa Rica eases restrictions and global travel safely opens back up, we are too. We are taking the necessary precautions and abiding by the health and safety protocols to ensure peace of mind for your next retreat.

Join us for a private or guided group retreat or facilitate a workshop of your own!
