Are you ready to live with intention?

Are you ready to manifest the life of your dreams?

Are you ready to open your heart to all the universe has to offer?


You're in the right place.

You deserve to feel your fullest expression of love, and Heart Wide Open is exactly the space to do that.

About the retreat

Come open your heart with us on a 5-day Cacao* retreat on a permaculture farm in the rural mountains of Costa Rica. Through sacred heart medicine, ceremony, and ancient wisdom practices we will explore our inner worlds, release old patterns and leave with a deeper connection to the Earth and ourselves.

This is the perfect place to reflect on the past year and create heart-based intentions for the year to come. With a powerful fire ceremony on New Year’s Eve, a Full Moon Transmissions Sound Ceremony on January 1st, and Visioning Circles on January 2nd, we will harness the energy of this incredibly powerful time so that you can enter 2018 with clarity, openness, and universal support for what will come.  

Registration closes December 1st

It’s rare to find organized witches — and I must say that Sena and Maggie are those rare gems. They brought together a truly integrated, balanced and deeply transformational healing retreat beyond my wildest imagination.

The Experience

Go deep with Cacao through daily shamanic ceremonies, song, dance, meditation and yoga classes. Cacao (the raw ingredient of chocolate) has been used as a heart opener by indigenous cultures for 3,500 years. Cacao’s active ingredients increase blood flow in the body and release ‘feel good’ chemicals in the brain resulting in an expansive, uplifted state. From this place, a deeper connection to your heart, and the ability to let go of blockages, is more easily accessible.

Create the life of your dreams as we cross the threshold into the new year and honor the full wolf moon on Jan 1st. Through guided shamanic journeys, visioning circles, and a powerful fire ceremony on New Year’s Eve, we will release what no longer serves us and clarify our visions of what we want to manifest in 2018.

Connect to Nature by getting your hands in the dirt on the land, bathing in the beautiful Rio Tulin, waking to the sounds of the jungle and learning about reforestation and permaculture projects from the VerdEnergia founders.

Uplevel your health with daily yoga and meditation, breathing in fresh jungle air, drinking fresh spring water, and eating the most delicious local home-cooked foods filled with good prana.

The plant medicine work we engaged in was deeply healing and helped me explore things I had buried deep in my heart. I emerged feeling completely renewed. I felt (and still feel, and don’t expect that to change!) so supported by Maggie and Sena and the group of women who attended, and that we formed a life-long bond built around our shared experience during the retreat.

Venue + Transportation

VerdEnergia Pacifica is not your typical retreat center. We’ll nourish ourselves on a cooperatively-owned permaculture community and reforestation project located in the rural mountains of Pursical, Costa Rica. With an open air yoga space, earth altars spread throughout the property and epic outdoor firepits, we’ll reconnect with the beauty of the natural elements around us.

We’ll have ample opportunity to connect with Mother Earth in this rustic indoor/outdoor lifestyle by showering in the river, natural pool or on site shower, and using private compostable toilets. This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a natural ecosystem and get in touch with our primal, wild nature.

Maggie and Sena are the best and have so much knowledge and love to give and they do so from a very authentic place with absolutely zero power trips. This has been perhaps one of the best experiences and investments that I’ve done for myself. Do yourself a favor and become a part of the Tesora Sacred Travel tribe, you will not regret it!

Tesora Sacred Travel was the best gift I have ever given to myself. Maggie and Sena have curated the very best of their own healing experiences to create an intentional space for people to go inward. This experience went far beyond traditional retreats or vacations — it opened up the space for a deep connection with myself, my truth, and with other fellow seekers in an environment that was entirely devoted to community, radical self-care, and transformative healing.

In our week together I got to travel into the depths of my soul and heal old wounds and stories that had been weighing me down and holding me back from my next level. In ceremony and through conversation with my sisters, I was able experience the freeing of my voice and a profound connection with my true purpose. I am so grateful for the release, the insight, the memories, the new friends, and most importantly the strength and the courage I developed through the journey.
