What you'll do

Welcome to Temple Gaia, a special private healing oasis located on the top of a gorgeous mountain top overlooking the Santa Teresa coastline.

This experience combines Cacao with Sound Medicine to give you a healing and relaxing journey in nature guided by local musicians.

Cacao is an ancient medicine used by indigenous tribes of Costa Rica for purification and connecting to the heart. In this musical Cacao Ceremony, led by the members of our local community, we will provide an authentic ritual cacao drink, made from pure cacao from Costa Rica. Then we will embark on a 2-hour shamanic sound journey with instruments from around the world, vocals and medicine songs.

Your hosts are Fern Olivia and a shamanic sound ensemble. Shamanic chanting, mantras, overtone singing, Native American songs, indigenous music, Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, bells, harmoniums, tuning forks and other overtone-emitting instruments are used to create an environment conducive to deep relaxation and inward investigation. Participants are led through guided meditations and sound healing practices designed to harmonize body, mind and spirit.

After your journey, you will receive a rose petal tea and organic fruit from the local Farmer's Market to refresh and nourish yourself after your experience.

I have lived in Costa Rica for nearly 4 years, starting in Nosara and landing in Santa Teresa where I am living amongst beautiful healthy fruits and a jungle of curious wildlife. Before my life in Costa Rica, I was working in the concrete jungle of Wall Street in Investment Banks, then started my wellness travel company in NYC and relocated to Los Angeles, where I lived for several years before making my forever home in Costa Rica.

Fern Olivia’s Cacao Ceremony was really special. My boyfriend and I went towards the end of our 6 month trip in Costa Rica to celebrate. Fern and her shaman Marito were very kind, warm, and inviting. The cacao seemed to be incredible quality. It’s organic and sourced from the mountains here in Costa Rica. We sipped Cacao while they played (and we joined in chanting) a variety of mantras and hymns. All while looking at the most beautiful view of the ocean. The instruments come from all around the world and the sound experience was something I’ve never heard before. A beautiful ceremony I would recommend that everyone try in Santa Teresa!

The setting for this experience is magical. If you are staying in or near Santa Theresa and are looking for a way to connect to the energy of this place, this is a good way to do that. The crisp air and cool breeze, and view of the beach from this mountaintop are really special. Fern's musician & ceremony partner was an extremely valuable part of our experience - he had a very calming and grounded presence and we were really able to connect with him. He added another layer of depth to the experience that made it a lot more meaningful for us. And to be able to have the option of a private sound healing experience is cool and unique. They made it accessible for both someone who had never been to a soundbath before (my husband) and someone who has been to several in person and listens to them often at home (me). In particular, my husband really connected to one of the mantras and it has stuck with him ever since.
