What is Finding Balance?
The Equilibrium Project has been developed for those that are looking to open their minds to a new way of thinking, being, and feeling. The” Finding balance retreat” incorporates physical activities to experience rhythm such as dance, yoga, breath work, practices as well as the martial arts. the initial stages are packed with with all forms of movement to strengthen and observe ourselves, all the while cultivating more awareness of our emotional states and the limiting beliefs that prevent us from developing the full expression of our "self". We focus our states of being, on learning to grow, and sustain a more intimate experience of balance on a personal scale of body, mind, emotions and spirit. As we cultivate more personal balance in our lives, we grow as a whole to find balance in ourselves, our families and our communities. We also delve deeply into the principles of permaculture that we may explore these natural cycles in a large and small scale within us and in the world around us.
Venue : Finca Morpho
The closest town and the only place with shops and ATM is Puerto Jimenez, 15km from the Farm. There’s a bar and restaurant approximately 1 / 2 km away that is open everyday.
The finca and the whole area is off-grid which means we have our own solar power system, wells and rainwater collection systems, septic tanks or composting toilets and grey water filtration systems.
The farm is an interesting place, situated on the beach and located in the second most biodiverse place on the planet, its home to many species of animals including monkeys, parrots, dolphins, whales, sea turtles, six species of wild cats, wild pigs, ant-eaters, tapir, and more. In order to protect this special place we strive to be sustainable and respect nature. You will find rather rustic conditions that focus on a connection and protection of nature.
