Adam from Sweden visited Farm of Life for 6-weeks, attended the Raw-Habilitation Retreat with Dr. Samuel Mielcarski, and completed a 10-day water fast. While he aimed for physical healing with Raw Food and the fast, his spiritual and mental transformations were far superior. He describes letting go of Shame and Guilt and receiving a download of Love and Gratitude. His heart opening experience at Farm of Life was remarkable!

The hike to the Diamante Sanctuary, Caves, Waterfalls and Medicinal Gardens is like being in Avatar - a spectacular hike through majestic primary forest of Costa Rica to Medicinal Gardens, The Shaman Caves, Waterfalls and Swimming Holes. The hike is tough - many stairs to climb on well-maintained trails - but the reward is well worth it! Farm of Life brings many retreats and guests on this hike with Tree of Life tours. The beauty, the opportunity to reconnect with nature and release fear and limitations makes this hike a transformative experience for most.

Beautiful Karine Ionesco volunteered at Farm of Life for our 2012 Retreat Season as a Kitchen Assistant. Her loving service to herself and to others brought extraordinary gifts - learning to love herself unconditionally, while witnessing countless others be transformed by their experience at Farm of life. She speaks of the unbelievable opportunity she had as assistant to Chefs Chris Kendall and Mary Graham, her inward journeys at the Diamante Waterfall and releasing fear, her passion to be in nature with likeminded people, her emotional transformations and her future prospects.

We interview Billa Kgari (http://ringingcedars.ning.com), who volunteered at Farm of Life for 2 months, transformed our greenhouse compost system, and transformed her own mental and emotional space while sleeping in the forest, communing with the stars and connecting with nature and the sacred space of Farm of Life.
Billa will host a Spiritual Permaculture Retreat in Costa Rica in Feb 2013... imagine living entirely off of the land, building from natural resources, eating raw food reconnection with all of the elements of air, water, sun and earth. Billa will post more about this retreat on her Ning site Ringing Cedars Revolution.
