journey with us to the caribe
Casa Cerise | Mar 21-28, 2020 with Sean & Munay
$1,600 - $2,000 inclusive, depending on accommodation
Join Sean and Munay for a week-long retreat and immersion in conscious embodiment, movement and ceremony at Casa Cerise in Playa Chiquita, Costa Rica.
We invite you to experience one of our favorite places to rejuvenate and play. The Caribbean rain forest and beaches of Costa Rica inspire a great return to elemental fullness. Tension melts away day by day, with each passing wave and all the vital sounds of the jungle. The colors of the Caribe are vibrant, wild and awakening.
Such soft wildness invites freedom of movement and expression. We will be immersed in daily practices of conscious embodiment, from Dance, to Groundwork, Animal Movement, Moving Meditation, Primal Walks on the beach and more, so that we may return to our simplest, fullest, dynamic selves.
You may reserve your space on the retreat with a $500 non-refundable deposit. Send Sean or Munay an email once you have paid your deposit and let us assist you with your accommodations and questions. Based on your preferences we will send you a final balance amount which will be due by March 7th, 2020.

Chef Giovanni's Magic

Giovanni will be offering a special cooking class to anyone interested.

preparing for your journey
You will be traveling to Playa Chiquita, about an hour south of Limón on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
Most international flights into San Jose, Costa Rica arrive in the evening. You will need to book a hotel room at Country Days Inn & Suites near the airport in San Jose for the night of March 20th. On the morning of March 21st, you'll have a choice of taking a 40 minute flight on Sansa from San Jose to the airport in Limón, or booking a shuttle (6 hrs, time varies) from San Jose to Playa Chiquita. If you choose to fly into Limón via Sansa, you will need to book a shuttle from the airport in Limón to Playa Chiquita (1 hour). Munay will be helping you with travel logistics.
Our retreat ends the morning of March 28th. Your travel plans back to San Jose will be similar to your arrival, with the likelihood of being able to find a flight out of San Jose on the same day.
We're happy to answer any travel questions you have.
