Last Saturday, early in the morning, three groups of women loaded up in cars and headed up the mountain, WAY UP the mountain, to visit Ama Tierra Retreat and Wellness Center for the day. It was a great experience, including the drive there. The owner of the resort, Jill, presented to our women's group the benefits of herbs last week so most of my photos are of the herbal plants so I can remember what's what. At the retreat, I did my first yoga class, we hiked through the jungle lead by two experts pointing out plants and trees along the way, had a wonderful lunch and I played the piano, first time in 20 years! Some ladies received massages, manicures and pedicures. Pamper yourself time. It was all a very moving experience and I encourage everyone to visit. Ama Tierre is nestling in the mountains in a most magical setting.
I came away with a sense of peace, balance, and harmony and plan to return,,,, soon!
Here are the photos:
This week will be spent on my gratitude list and getting centered again. Last week was hell week, losing things, forgetting things and just plain ole scatter brained. I really needed this little retreat excursion to get back on track.

I have provided the driving directions from both the San Jose and Jaco area in the comments section of this post.
