Illumination, Healing and Transformation

Using the power of the Five Elements for clean mental and emotional health!

Costa Rica
February 24th – 28th, 2019

The 18,000-year-old ancient Tibetan Yungdrung Bön practice of the Five Elements can give us a healthier mind, body and spirit. For centuries, Tibetans have recognized the five elements – Space, Wind, Fire, Water and Earth – and their impact on our health.

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche, one of the senior Rinpoches at sMenri Monastery, Abbot of Latri Monastery in Tibet, and one of this generation’s Master Geshes, will teach the inner Five Elements of our self.

Rinpoche will teach us about the Five Elements and how to correlate the Five Elements with our bodies and our surroundings. Learning to be connected with these elements begins our process of healing and transformation. Balancing the elements in our bodies and minds helps release stress, anger and uncertainty, and increases our focus, productivity and creativity.

If we mindfully apply and work with the powers of the Five Elements, we can feel and see ourselves transform into a powerful, balanced, happy, peaceful, prosperous and healthy person.


You will discover and learn:

The Space Element will help you clear space, giving you room, focus, and direction.

The Air Element will teach you about healing from within.   

The Fire Element will stimulate your creativity and connection with others, helping you find joy for living and mastery over anger.

The water element will teach you to be fluid, helping you with work, relationships and within yourself.

The Earth Element will show you how to be grounded and strong.

This Illumination, Healing and Transformation retreat is going to be a very powerful opportunity for life transformation. The course will consist of five days, one devoted to each element. Half of the day will be lecture-style teaching and meditation. The second half will be an experiential adventure with each element, to create our personal connections with the elements.

There will also be time for other activities to be found at the resort.


The Venue

We are fortunate to have an amazing place for this wonderful retreat. One of Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’s student has offered her beautiful and healing resort in Costa Rica.

Amor De Mar in Costa Rica will be the host of this teaching Retreat.   Amor De Mar is located in a fun little village right on the ocean, surrounded by the natural beauty of beaches, water falls, and jungles.      Amor De Mar will add a peaceful element for our souls.      A mix of teachings, adventure, rest and rejuvenation.

We believe Amor de Mar in Montezuma Costa Rica will add a special memory.  Traveling to Costa Rica will bring about a sense of passion to this teaching.  We can all enjoy the ocean, the breeze, the fire side chats, the beautiful accommodations, hikes to the waterfalls, the taste of wonderful, freshly prepared meals and so much more.

The element of journey allows us to step away from our routine and normal surroundings, to immerse ourselves in the teaching, supported by nature.  This is a time and place for personal transformation.  When we return to our normal lives, we will have tools to maintain the transformation in our daily lives, careers, and personal and professional relationships.
