Adi Shakti of Passion Yoga School and Eleanor Bramwell of BodyWise Institute have united to co-create Beneath the Shadow: An Intensive Cathartic Journey & Detox. 

FACT: Most people aren't living their full lives. Our society is Enslaved by screens and the past. Paralyzed, Powerless, Stuck, Emotionally Reactive. Wounded by the happenings of childhood. Shrouded by brain fog and repressed emotions. Riddled with Anxiety, Judgement, and Depression. Living a life devoid of meaningful connection. 

SOLUTION: A re-wilding! At Passion, we understand that the tools to free ourselves are within. We will guide you into the silent depth of your own knowing to uncover your individual and collective power. In community we will strip away the masks that kept us separate and armored. Shattering self limiting beliefs, unbinding patterning, opening ourselves up to deeper connection with self, other, and great spirit.

This intensive is designed to support you in reaching full liberation in this lifetime.  

THE CONTAINER: Our team is comprised of phenomenal space holders, pioneers that have traversed their own inner landscape, explorers that have gone with a flashlight into the depths of their own soul…. Examining what lay beneath their own shadows. So that they may guide you to your own inner knowing.

 

HAVE THE COURAGE TO LIVE ON PURPOSE: You are powerful. You are beautiful. You are worthy. And your soul deserves the opportunity to unplug, get wild, and detox {physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually} with us here in the jungle.

Introducing, the Beneath the Shadow Intensive

This 6-day-long soul immersion is designed for seekers who sincerely desire to go into their own shadow and uncover the sweetness below the story. To dissolve that which keeps us trapped in isolation.

Welcome to a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual detox designed to support you in shedding layers and stepping into a new, more fulfilling way of living.

We will juice fast for 3 of the 6 days. We have skillfully created a map to facilitate your journey home and igniting your inner fire. Our daily schedule will contain both radical, primal, liberating, chartic practices and stillness, silence, integration, and time in nature.

 WHO THIS IS FOR

This program is for seekers with experience in spiritual inquiry who are ready to take an established foundation deeper. 

This program is NOT for those in a state of Active Crisis. We will be doing practices WITH THE INTENTION OF BRINGING UP DIFFICULT EMOTIONS so that they can be cleared.

If you are struggling with PTSD, have recently endured a traumatic experience, if daily life overwhelms your nervous system, or are looking for a calm, restorative, or gentle retreat experience - THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.

  This safe and loving space is right for you when:

You’re ready…...

  • You’re ready to take an established spiritual practice deeper

  • You’re ready to be fully alive and awaken the wild, primal aspects of your being

  • You’re ready to step into a spiritual community of dedicated seekers

  • You’re ready to take radical responsibility for your life and inner experience

  • You’re ready to uncover and alchemize deeper truths

It will likely be challenging at times. And we know it is worth it. We have held hundreds of students through deep internal process. You can hear from many of them by clicking here. 

We will offer support, containment, and powerful tools to navigate the emotional and mental turbulence that inevitably surfaces as we heal our inner life.

SB__8109_10_11_12_13-XL.jpg

Note that Finca Armoninia is a growing permaculture project, and your accommodations contain compost toilets. You can expect to sacrifice some first world comforts for the sake of honoring mother Earth and harmonizing with the wild rhythm of the tropical rain forest you will call home. If you are not a 'nature person' or are not turned on by the idea of mud in your toes, warm rain on your skin, or wild jungle noises as you gaze up at the stars - this is NOT the program for you.

A non-refundable 30% deposit ($750 USD) holds your place in the program, and the remaining is due 60 days before the program start date. All payment is processed via credit or debit card on our secure online server. You will receive secure, automated reminders for payment with easy to use links to process your card.

NOTE: We have experienced unprecedented demand for this program, and it will sell out soon. We only accept 24 students into our live programs, and now is the time to register if you are serious about joining us.

FLIGHT

You will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica (airport code SJO) a day before. You need to be at Tasty Waves Cantina in Playa Cocles at 3pm on the first day of the program for your shuttle to the farm.

Still Have Questions? More Answers Here

Who typically comes to your programs?

We welcome all shapes, sizes, races, sexes, genders, religions, and orientations to our programs. That being said, many of our students are women from the ages of 20 - 45 who are deeply called to step more fully into themselves and expand their professional capacity as a social leader. We have formed a strong sisterhood, and we welcome brothers into our spiritual family with open arms.

How do I get to you? Where exactly are you located?

We’re located on the Southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica in a small town called Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. Fly to Costa Rica’s largest airport: Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO).

From San Jose we recommend a shared shuttle to Puerto Viejo, like Caribe Shuttle. Be sure to check departure schedules before you book your international flight. Shuttles depart Denny’s Restaurant 2x daily (Denny’s is 5 minutes from the international airport).

On day one where do I go?

We provide a shuttle from Puerto Viejo to our Eco Farm at 3pm on the first day of the program. The shuttle departs from Tasty Waves Cantina in Playa Cocles.

Please note: It takes time to travel from San Jose to Puerto Viejo, and you will need to arrive in Costa Rica the day before our program begins

Can I bring my children?

We are unable to host children at Finca Armonia due to the all inclusive, intensive format.

Where should I stay during, before or after the program?

When you register, you receive a Welcome Packet with tons of great, budget-specific information on where to stay both in San Jose or Puerto Viejo before or after your intensive program.

What can I expect in terms of weather?

We are blessed to live in complete harmony with nature and experience ALL of her wild cycles (possibly in one day) here in the Caribbean. You can expect to be blessed by the radiant Caribbean sun and the intense Caribbean rain that beats down on the jungle canopy. Honoring Mother Nature in all her forms is an integral part of our practice here at Passion Yoga School.

What should I bring with me?

Once you place your deposit, you will receive a detailed list of items to bring that are required for the course. Two weeks before the course begins, you will receive a packing list and helpful travel information about your upcoming trip.

What about internet access?

No Wifi is available during this program. Your family can email our Program Manager to write if something comes up at home- and we will make accomodations in the case of an emergency. That being said, it is important to complete projects and organize your life so that you can be off grid.

What are the expectations around daily discipline?

The boundaries and expectations for our programs will be outlined on the first day of class. They include a vegetarian diet, abstinence, periods of silence, and more. We call our programs intensives for a reason. We go deep. Be ready to show up for yourself and your practice every day to fully experience everything the program has to offer.

How does payment work?

To reserve your space in one of our personal transformation intensives, we ask that you make a deposit of 30% of the total price by following the payment link. We accept payment by debit card or credit card. The final payment for the training is due 60 days before the program start date, and you will receive an automated reminder email with a link to submit payment. If you would prefer smaller installments, please email us and we can easily find a solution that serves you.

Do you offer scholarships? What about work exchange?

We have a few early bird scholarships that have VERY limited availability. More information about our scholarship opportunities for upcoming programs can be found by emailing support@passionyogaschool.com. We don’t currently accept work exchange for our personal transformation intensives.

What do I need to bring?

A list of essential items will be sent to your inbox via email once you place your 30% deposit.

What is the cancellation/refund policy?

All deposits are non-refundable. However, they are transferable, so if for whatever reason you place your deposit and can’t join us, you can give your spot to someone else. All deposits are valid through the next calendar year, so you may apply your payment to a future program that fits a change in your schedule.

How do I know if this isn’t the program for me?

If you aren’t ready to dive into the depths of your soul, discover places where you feel uncomfortable, and release the layers of yourself that cause you suffering – this isn’t the program for you. We live in the jungle where the energy of Mother Nature is strong. It’s humid – the air is thick here. There are truly huge bugs. Rain will wet your hair, with your feet trudging in mud. Simply put, this isn’t the program for you if you aren’t ready to commit to your growth 1000%.
