Lisa Li

Lisa Li:
Lisa Li is a Breathwork facilitator also trained in the Usui Reiki system, Qi flow massage, yoga teacher, spiritual explorer and believer in freedom and true health.

She wishes to share what she has learned with those who suffer unnecessarily in an attempt to help people get closer to their wholeness and happiness.

Jolyn & Lisa

Jolyn and Lisa met at this amazing place last year.
They knew they wanted to return and create a sacred time for women. They were moved by the spirit of the nature and her great call to heal. They are following that call by joining together to make space for women where they can approach healing from a place of support and connection to their own intuitive sources.

The Ecolodge is in a very exciting process of changing their name and updating their website.  You may notice that the name Guaria de Osa shows up sometimes.If is their old name and it means orchid of the Osa. It truly is that but they found many did not know how to pronounce it!
