Accommodations, Pricing & Travel Details

MAY 28th to JUNE 18 ~ AVES ~ MONTEZUMA, COSTA RICA

Sacred Land

Precious Community

Luminous Hearts

Our greatest pleasure is to announce AVES RESORT will be the newest location for the Luminous Heart Institute teacher training in Costa Rica.

Aves is a newly built Yoga & Meditation Retreat Center in Montezuma overlooking the Pacific Ocean. 

On our first visit, we were moved by a 200+ year-old grandmother Pachote Tree, which the resort is centered around. Anchored by this mighty endangered tree, the life force on this land was palpable from the moment we walked onto the property. 

We are excited to share this experience with you through the Luminous Heart Institute sacred teaching container.

AVES RESORT

Aves Resort is a luxurious, sprawling, consciously designed resort, recently built on the hills of Montezuma with views of the Pacific Ocean. Their spacious facilities and accommodations are built to nurture your heart and mind. On the grounds, you can choose to relax in the pools, meditate in the tropical gardens, stroll the trails to the river, or contemplate nature in an exotic, safe, and friendly ambiance.

Along with top-notch training, some of the planet's most beautiful beaches, many activities and adventures await you. Immerse yourself in the beauty and ease into nature's rhythm as Luminous Heart Institute & Aves's experienced and caring staff take care of all the details while nurturing you as you focus all your time and energy on your training and growth.
