About Awaken Your Soul

Awaken Your Soul offers a warm and nurturing approach for those seeking more peace in their lives, helping them feel safe and comfortable to explore their deepest truths. These retreats are not a “vacation” but rather a departure from an old, stale and often uncomfortable way of being. Iboga is an incredibly powerful tool for healing all aspects of our lives. If someone is ready, one week with the Iboga medicine can truly begin to transform a person, we see this over and over and over again.

This time offers our guests the opportunity to experience an elevated state of consciousness combined with healing foods, breathwork, art therapy, yoga, meditation and an open and safe environment for people to feel greatly supported to explore themselves in the deepest way possible.

On our lush 91 acre property located in the mountains of Costa Rica we host open enrollment retreats as well as coordinate private retreats by appointment.

Anthony Esposito

Anthony’s first Iboga experience was so profound that it became immediately clear he would serve this sacred medicine with respect and honor. Anthony has a deep connection to the sprit of Iboga, and has been cultivating his practice over the last 6 years. Iboga has given Anthony the ability to heal his trauma, embrace the beauty of life and to help others realize their own freedom.

Isabel
Resident Ceremony Kitty

Isabel (typically known as Mama) was born in Miami and has been and nature-lover and a devout foodie her whole life. She has always had a compassionate nature but truly tapped into her empathic and healing abilities when her parents began to include her in these sacred ceremonies.

She now spends her days interacting with the peacocks and snoozing to save her energies for the ceremony nights. Isabel spends the entire ceremony time patrolling the sacred space and attending to those who need some animal connection!
