We live in a vast ocean of vibration. All that exists in and beyond our world is vibrating and all that is vibrating is producing sound. We invite you to join us in exploring this Sound in the lush landscape of Costa Rica immersed in nature’s beauty. This transformational retreat, led by Ayi and Michael Wong Mayzel and Tryshe Dhevney, will be held at Blue Spirit, one of the foremost world-class yoga and meditation retreat centers in the world.
