Nicaragua: December 2018

New Year’s Reiki, Magik and Manifestation Retreat

Playa Gigante, Nicaragua

With Kelsey J. Patel

Give yourself the ultimate welcome to the New Year as you journey to Nicaragua for new vibrations, reiki healing and deep intention setting practices with Kelsey J Patel. This 7 day retreat is for those looking to go on an adventure of the soul. With daily yoga, medi-tation, reiki healing, manifesting rituals and deep renewal practices, Kelsey will guide you through the releasing of old beliefs, behaviors, fears and pain to open up your vibra-tion and receive the new magik that awaits each new year. You will journey inward, have plenty of time to rest and restore and gently be guided into new visions for your-self, rooted practices and self-inspired rituals to take home.

Nicaragua is one of our favorite retreat destinations and we can’t wait to bring in 2019 with you in this pristine jungle paradise! The retreat takes place at Aqua Wellness, a “barefoot luxury” eco-friendly treehouse resort situated in a lush tropical rainforest on a private beach cove on the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua. We will spend our days work-shopping with Kelsey—digging deep to uncover what it is we truly want to manifest in the new year and creating space for those desires to come to fruition. We’ll also enjoy morning yoga and meditations, as well as mindful workouts led by Kelsey. In the after-noons, we’ll get to explore this magical location through volcano trekking, visiting the lo-cal surf town of Gigante, and optional surf lessons and horseback riding. We’ll also have plenty of time to relax on the beach, get a massage or take a dip in one of numerous pri-vate plunge pools. At night we’ll enjoy candlelit dinners, reiki healing circles, stargazing and a NYE manifestation ceremony!

We cannot wait to spend this very special time with you—let’s make 2019 your year to shine!

Aqua Nicaragua is a “barefoot luxury” eco-friendly treehouse resort situated in a lush tropical rainforest on a private beach cove on the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua. This eco-lodge is built above the forest floor to minimize impact on the surrounding rainforest. Aqua is a sanctuary of peace and wellness with the most breathtaking views imaginable. Here, you will enjoy healthy organic meals, dips in the numerous plunge pools, spa treatments, and jungle yoga in Aqua’s open-air studio. The sustainable treehouse villas are scattered about the property and built up in the trees, offering total privacy for guests. Each features a fresh, modern design with indigenous wood floors and walls. You will fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean and wake up to monkeys, butterflies, and birds of all sorts.
