Tune in and relax into the BEAUTY and healing environment of Costa Rica.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
Talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
People won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
Permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
— Marianne Williamson

Waterfall Wellness Ritual:

The Waterfall Wellness Ritual is our signature Sanctuary experience. This 1.5-2 hour empowering adventure right here on the property includes a full body cleansing and exfoliating treatment using indigenous fruits, flowers, oils and herbs, a guided river hike, waterfall climb, meditation, sacred mineral pool plunge and healing abhyanga (self massage with jungle flower infused fresh-pressed coconut oil). This fun and unique ritual is designed to assist in the growth and transformation process that naturally happens while on retreat with us by cultivating clarity, intention, release, creativity and friendship.


Jungle Alchemy Medicine Dance

Movement Ritual has been a form of celebration and beauty, an important element of initiation, and a vehicle to recognize and connect with self, one another and the divine for as long as humans have been gathering around the fire. In this 90 minute guided experience we move to cultivate awareness on all levels and burn through layers of samskara (habits, hang-ups and karmic patterns) to ignite the pure essence of being that dwells within. No choreography, no need for slick sexy moves, just a willingness to liberate yourself. By expressing our own joy and freedom, we light the path for others.


This transcendent experience includes guided pranayama to balance and ground, gentle stretching to relax and heal, an other worldly gong bath, integration time in shavasana and seated meditation. Our 32” inch Paiste symphonic gong is one of only four of it’s kind on the planet. The optimal time to experience this amazing energetic infusion is sunset.


The Sanctuary at Two River is located in a Blue Zone

The Sanctuary at Two Rivers is located in Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, an area known as a Blue Zone -- one of five regions on the planet where there is a high concentration of people living well into there 90s and 100s, who are in robust health. 

Some of the common characteristics of global Blue Zones are that the residents eat a plant- based diet rich in legumes, integrate moderate physical activity into their everyday lives, don’t smoke, value their families and engage in their communities. 

Your time with us at The Sanctuary will no doubt increase the quality of your life!

International retreat leader, Doctor of Chinese medicine, functional medicine practitioner; licensed acupuncturist and herbalist; registered yoga teacher; Reiki master and teacher; certified massage therapist

Dr. Allison Snowden is a visionary, educator, author and healer. She was born empathic, intuitive and deeply attuned to environments, animals and to people’s vibrations. Allison had a deep connection to spirituality. When she was seven years old, her sister was diagnosed with cancer. Allison witnessed her sister’s pain and suffering, death of several children and teenagers. At age 14, Allison experienced an existential crisis; she deeply feared the process of physical death and wanted to understand why there is so much suffering to children. She prayed for answers because no words could soothe her soul’s cry for understanding.

In 1999, at 15 years old Allison was hit by a motorcycle while crossing the street in Mexico. She physically died, experienced her true identity as LOVE, and chose to come back to heal her traumatized body and life. It took two years of painful surgeries for all her bones to heal. Her medical doctors proclaimed her a “living miracle” for surviving such a trauma. Although her fractured bones had healed, Allison was plagued by chronic physical pain, nightmares and emotional turmoil. Her medical doctors told her that she would be in chronic pain for the rest of her life. That was the start of her relentless personal and academic exploration of healing to find solutions to heal and unite her mind, body and soul.  

Allison transformed her trauma through energy healing, daily yoga, meditation, acupuncture, massage, diet and dedication to her spirituality and personal growth.

Allison is an acupuncture physician, herbalist, functional medicine practitioner, Reiki master and yoga teacher. She has studied with exceptional healers within the United States and internationally. It is her understanding and knowing through her personal healing journey and though witnessing her patients healing unfold that the human spirit and body has a tremendous potential and capacity to heal through disease and trauma. Her area of interest lies in how physiology, psychology, and spirituality interact to affect our personal experience and ability to facilitate healing.  

She holds a Master's and Doctorate degree in traditional Oriental medicine from the prestigious Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego.  She has completed additional training on acupuncture, herbal medicine, consciousness, yoga, and remote viewing through the Omega Institute, the Monroe Institute and the International Acupuncture Center in Beijing, China.

It is Allison’s mission to spread the vibration of unconditional love that she experienced in her near-death experience. To share that every life matters, love is the only power, and to give hope and inspiration that healing is our natural state and our birthright.

Allison feels honored to be a part of your healing process and transformational journey. She is delighted to teach, coach, and lead others on their unique and powerful path to restoration and rejuvenation through holistic health, yoga, and energy healing.


These empowered GLOWING women will be participating, assisting, and leading class:


Dr. Jess


Dr. Jessica Peatross is a western trained medical doctor who began her journey into healing in 2009 when she graduated from the University of Louisville internal medicine residency program. She is passionate about teaching people how to be their own best doctor by educating themselves and listening to their body.

After debilitating anxiety and mounting health issues, in 2012, Dr Jess had a huge personal awakening. She began to see that western medicine did not have all the answers she was so earnestly seeking. Answers she wasn’t just seeking for herself, but also for many of her patients. She became more aware of the advancement of technology, yet the poor advent of cures for diseases or discovery of the root causes of chronic illnesses or cancer. Dr Jess made the move to the west coast in 2013 where she took some time off work, took up meditation, became a certified yoga teacher, traveled the world, learned about energy work, muscle testing, ozone therapy, studied Ayurveda and found herself. She now fully believes that health begins with Divine, Self Love and Care.

Dr. Jess is also a Gerson therapy practitioner and is excited to offer this knowledge to anyone with a chronic condition, cancer or just needing a detox. In retrospect, Dr. Jess knows she had an unprompted kundalini awakening and was graciously led down the path of enlightenment and her own divine mission. She now believes western medicine is only a piece of whole health. Mind, body and spirit are all connected and need intimately tended to for full happiness. This is the basis for Holistic Consults. As hospitals firmly hold onto their aging beliefs, patients and clients are asking for more from their healthcare providers. Dr. Jess believes that personalized, preventative and functional treatment plans are the next step to revolutionize healthcare. Disease is much easier to prevent than to cure. Dr. Jess would love to help heal you on every level through inspiration, knowledge, movement, nutrition, and eastern and western healing modalities.
