I am at www.BlueSpiritcostarica.com and the area around NOsar is absolutely lovely. Immense coast line of great pristine, untouched beaches, no garbage anywhere, the environment totally protected. Blue Spirit is a dream !
All the most elegant and modern amenities are here, an extraordinary group room with pristine wooden floors and glass walls
overlooking the coast and the ocean. The food is vegetarian and sensational– beyond delicious– with “cleanse” menus, and an all raw menu options. Although most of the people coming for this educational holiday are American, they are of all ages, curious, loving the options to dance, do yoga, meditate do ChiGung, or study Tantra with Margot (next week) or shamanism with John Perkins.
When going out of the main Blue Spirit buildings, one walks past a lovely salt water swimming pool; and, turning to the right along a well tended jungle pathway for about 5 to 7 minutes, a green sloped field leading to a gorgeous white sand beach comes into full view.
The sea smells of salt and sea brine, and marine life is breathtaking. Today I witnessed a gorgeous sunset, and observed the pelicans who visit in droves. They fly low and gracefully over the waves and suddenly plunge, beak first into the water to retrieve their food (amazing how they know exactly where to find the fish)… And then there came a company of eagles ! choosing a high tree to settle on for the night…. so many birds of all colors and sorts. The air is pure, the sun is orange and fills the horizon with an incendiary fire glow.
The program at Blue Spirit this week is with Joan Hallifax, Roshi of the Upaya Zen Monastery. She teaches all over the world and is a consultant to a famous artist responsible for a huge piece created in honor of the 2012 Olympics in London. She advised this artist to dedicate the piece and a portion of the proceeds from his commission to the Childran of the world…. He agreed. Joan teaches about “awakening the living Buddha within yourself and in your daily life.”
Joan touched me deeply because I’ve known her a long time…. and at 70 years old, she is still amazingly fresh and sprightly ! Fancy traveling the world to teach at 70 years old !
I decided to go on a fun rugged adventure and rented a Quad – a four wheel monster equivalent of a dune buggy– I drove this mean machine all around the dusty roads and had a blast!
The people here form a unique community that is thriving ! About 50 to 100 people join every week anew !!!
Okay gotta go for now, Lots of love,
