What’s Included

Diversum Retreats are a truly one-of-a-kind experience. You will embark upon a journey rooted and inspired by the fundamentals of nature, neuroscience, and ancient wisdom to promote a life filled with vital energy, regenerative wellness, expansion, unity, and embodied expression.

Movement & Meditation

Through somatic healing and movement, we can ground into our bodies and connect to the innate technologies present within us, allowing us to find safety and release through physical expression. 

Plant Medicine Ceremonies

 Grandmother is an Amazonian plant medicine used for possibly 1000 of years, by indigenous and more recently mestizo shamans across the upper Amazon throughout Peru, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil. It works putting light into our shadows.

Hapé (Tobacco snuff) is a complex mix of various plants of the Amazon, with the main ingredient being a strong tobacco. Hapé can have a stimulating and psychoactive effect, depending on what plants are used to make it.

Together in our ceremony containers, we create space to allow for the awareness, processing, and expression of emotions, memories, and energies to promote healing and step into our highest actualization. 

Sound Healing

Our sound healing workshops are designed to incorporate the beat of the Earth into our breathing and every muscle of our body to experience the beauty of rhythm and synchronicity.

The vibrations of percussions, flute, Tibetan bowls, and chanting will help you connect with your inner voice and heartbeat.

Temazcal (Sweat Lodge)

Temazcal is an incredibly unique experience, invoking the elements of earth, air, water and fire. You give your voice, your sweat, and your intentions to the Earth in a humbling lodge, fueled by fire-enriched volcanic rock and in return, you are purified, cleansed, rejuvenated and the doors of perception wiped clean.

Neuromodulation Technologies

Unlock your highest potential through advanced neuromodulation technologies such as biofeedback, neurofeedback, neurostimulation/pEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field therapy), and neuro-assisted meditation. 

Consciousness Workshops

Gain experience and education with the layers of consciousness in immersive workshops, and learn how to integrate these teachings into your own consciousness exploration and expansion. 

Brain Imaging Interpretation

Engage in an interpretation of brainwave activity using advanced functional neuroimaging technology called qEEG (quantitative electroencephalogram). This imaging allows us to bring awareness to brain function patterns that may be impairing our ability to access states of peace, joy and love. Uncovering these barriers provides the necessary insight we need to align with our own unique path of healing and growth.

Men's & Women's Circles

When men gather, the world becomes safe. When women gather, the world will heal. By reclaiming and integrating our masculine and feminine polarities, we allow space for deep healing and transformation, both within ourselves and the greater collective.

Ecstatic Dance

Enter into a freeform movement journey within a safe and sacred container to promote freedom of expression and connection with your embodied wisdom.

Nature Reconnection

By grounding and immersing ourselves in the beauty and energy of the Nicaraguan rainforest, we charge up our mitochondria while connecting with the natural harmony of the Earth.

Pre and Post-Retreat Integration Calls

Through group call support, you will be armed with the tools to truly make lasting change in your life. Pre-retreat calls will aid you in setting intentions and preparing to enter into this space. Post-retreat integration will involve psychological and somatic processing of the experiences and a successful assimilation of insights into your life for optimal growth and well-being.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Enjoy nutrient-dense, brain-boosting, delicious meals curated by our private Nicaraguan chef. These will primarily be plant-based meals, with optional fish and eggs.

Testimonials

My Costa Rica retreat changed my life forever, it was truly a magical experience.  Heading to the retreat, I was stuck in my head, overwhelmed, lost and desperately looking for answers to why I felt empty and alone.  This was my first time traveling to a destination by myself. The trip was so well taken care of that I felt safe and happy from the moment the plane took off from calgary.  It all started with a journey to the jungle from the airport, which felt adventurous even after a long flight.  Once we arrived at Macaw Lodge, I felt like I was the luckiest person in the world and peacefully at home.  The serene surroundings were just breathtaking, gorgeous and full of life.  The plants, the animals, the waterfall, the lodge; it was all just too perfect, like I was in a movie.  Once I learned more on how the lodge was constructed and cared for, I felt honored to be there.   

The experiences that unfolded during my retreat were truly a blessing. A very big highlight of the trip was the food; the taste, variety, and flavors made meal time an exciting time. I could eat as much as I wanted without discomfort and it felt nourishing.  Sunrise yoga sessions, waterfall dips, breathwork, healing circle, learning about the environment and the elements, sharing and creating a community and more.   The knowledge I gained from every activity was designed to ensure a transformational experience.  It was the perfect balance of relaxation and learning. I was able to feel again, enjoy the day and see the world through another lens.   

I knew things changed for me when I was not stuck thinking about why I was at the retreat. This retreat is right for you, if you want to begin your own journey on who you truly are and feel fully supported just the way you are. The gifts were plentiful, if you want to feel like winning the lottery, this is the right retreat for you.

Kali

I have Complex PTSD from childhood trauma.  I’ve seen psychotherapists off and on throughout my life, which taught me some coping skills, but I just couldn’t seem to really make good progress in my healing.  I had even been told that this was just something I was going to have to live with for the rest of my life.  After working with Dr. Bell to help me literally “rewire” my brain, I was finally able to break through the wall that was keeping me trapped in my trauma!

Lori

As a perpetual student, I have had the privilege of being taught by some of the most amazing doctors in the world after graduating from CMCC in 1989. I am grateful and indebted to such mentors as Drs. Jeff Bland, Robert Rakowski, John Brimhall, George Goodheart, Dale Brederson, Jeff Spencer, David Leaf, Ian Horseman, and Mike Leahy, just to name a few.

Most recently, as a result of COVID, I was introduced to Dr. Corey Deacon because of my interest in brain assessment and preventing cognitive decline. Dr. Deacon is the most gifted teacher that I have ever been humbled to be taught and mentored by. At the best of times, studying the brain is a complicated and difficult subject. Dr. Corey’s unique superpower is being able to take these complex concepts of the brain and transform them into meaningful treatment and lifestyle action steps, like I have never seen before. I am so grateful for Dr. Corey and look forward to many years of learning from him.
