February 25 – March 1, 2020
(Post Envision Festival)
Come be in nature with yourself and Infinite Source Yoga on our 4th annual Starseed Integration Retreat. This weeklong hand-poked tattooing, ancestral arts, and Infinite Source Yoga lifestyle journey is pure magic. Our jungle and sunset beach setting is incredibly raw and the ocean is transformational. Give yourself the gift reconnecting to yourself and the Earth Mother in the healing jungles of Costa Rica.
Accommodations in our simple and cozy jungle chalets are glamping magic! Each guest will have their own twin bed with mosquito netting. Bathroom (shower, sink, and toilet) in each chalet. Located only 150 meters from the beach. Wake surrounded by monkey families & toucans. Enjoy the lush views and sounds of the jungle as you stroll to yoga at the castle, or down to the beach!
Meals are included in this experience. In the jungle we eat mostly raw with some cooked options. Occasional fish can be served but mostly we eat vegetarian and Costa Rican-inspired. You will learn how to feed yourself for an activated life. Most guests detox and gain a GLOWING aura from the food and nature activation. These activations confirm to us that FOOD IS LIFE and we MUST HARNESS THIS POWER and understand the truth of our digestive OJAS (vitality). This experience will be like a reset button for your entire body, mind and spirit.
We will take a group outing, either visiting the waterfall, the local ferria (farmers market), or to get a bite to eat. We will take either the bus or cabs on our outings. (Fare not included.)

This Year’s Starseed Artist:
Sanya Youalli was born in Slovenia, where she spent her youth. She arrived in Mexico in January 2002.
Studying and researching she found that ancient practice of tattooing had disappeared for over a century in Mexico and she received the calling of Ancient Tattoo revival.
She made her tattoo tools from different materials and self-taught she began spontaneously tattoo with ancient tattoo technique. From the first ancient tattoo ceremony, she felt as she had been doing it forever. Her session includes ancestral elements, like cleansing with copal and traditional healing music. Most of the year she works at her private studio in jungle atmosphere, surrounded by nature.
Sanya considers the body as a temple of soul and the skin as the most sacred canvas.
She created her own style, inspired by the ancient symbology, specialized in black dot tattoo.
She believes that reviving this lost knowledge is part of a prophecy, which is fulfilled by the return of the ancestral ways and the identity expression of the people and their connection to the spiritual realm in the modern society as a metaphor of grandfather sun showing his face again.
Previous Starseed Artists:
So much gratitude for Heather Chan, who joined us on our 2019 Starseed Integration Retreat.
Heather Chan walks gently upon the Earth and collects many of her gifts- stones, feathers, crystals and sacred talismans which sit quietly on her traveling altar. She Immerses herself in landscapes rich with culture and tradition, where ritual and ceremony can still live and breathe in the quiet spaces of each day.
With degrees in Art and Psychology, she shares her passion for art through teaching creative expression to children and adults, which has led her to a strong understanding of the connection between art, ritual, and inner healing.
Through following her heart, she finds herself now the jungles of Costa Rica, ready to empower anyone who wishes to honour their story, to commemorate a transformative period in their lives through the art of ceremonial tattoo.
