Susun Weed invites you on an
Herbal Adventure in Costa Rica
March 4 ~ March 12, 2005

Immersing ourselves in lush rainforest, rugged mountains, and long stretches of palm-fringed beaches are just some of the experiences we will have. The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is just teeming with colorful flora and fauna. We will experience a wide variety of ecosystems that grace this part of our gorgeous earth. Susun Weed will lead us in this 9 day herbal adventure as she shares with us her vast knowledge of the natural world. She will teach us about green allies, plant journeying, the secret language of plants, and much more! With the help of local guides, we will learn about the medicinal uses of the plants in the area. We are very excited to have you join us on this unforgettable journey through Costa Rica.

Where we’ll stay in Costa Rica ~

Located 30 miles south of Puerto Limon, Samasuti is an exquisite retreat center situated on 250 acres of virgin rainforest overlooking the Caribbean Sea. It is the perfect place for adventure, rejuvenation, and contemplation. We will stay in guesthouses (with shared bathrooms) and bungalows (with private bathrooms). Eating a marvelous, whole foods diet will nourish and support us throughout our adventure.

A sampling of places we’ll visit and things we’ll do ~

Hike in a biological reserve. The virgin rainforest is the most biologically diverse ecosystem on the planet. Walking through it is like taking a step back in time.
We will visit a botanical garden and an indigenous reserve. Here we will be able to observe an extraordinary diversity of medicinal plants. Locals will teach us about the traditions and beliefs of the native peoples.
Boating and kayaking in the crystal clear waters off the Caribbean coast will provide us with a breathtaking experience.
We will tour a 30 acre environmentally conscious farm which strives for sustainable living through the use of eco-technology.
Daily yoga and meditation classes, and a dip in the jacuzzi will nourish and invigorate us all.
We will also have plenty of time to relax and swim on the glistening beaches, as well as at the retreat center.
