Individual Wellness

Embracing Healing in Harmony with Nature - At Amistar, we believe in the transformative power of nature's embrace, found in the lush jungle at the foot of the Talamanca Mountains, and the gentle rhythms of the nearby Caribbean Sea. Our Veterans Retreats are held just a short stroll from the storied beaches of Punta Uva, offering more than a remedy; Amistar is a sanctuary, thoughtfully designed to support those carrying the weight of trauma. While we are committed to aiding the courageous veterans who have served us, we also extend a healing hand to others bearing the invisible scars of life's battles. With us, your journey towards healing is a shared endeavor, guided by a compassionate community and the therapeutic serenity of the Caribe Sur's healing traditions. We invite you to discover your path and find peace in the caring arms of Amistar, where land meets sea to weave a tapestry of healing.

Coming Soon:

Amistar Foundation proudly partners with Liminal Experiences LLC to offer limited scholarships for participation in the SOULignment Wellness Retreat– a transformative journey designed to empower veterans and all those touched by trauma, Moral Injury, and/or (C)PTSD.

We deeply believe in the power of holistic healing for fostering mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. With your invaluable support, we can provide the resources our participants need to make the crucial shift from merely surviving to truly thriving.

Our signature one-week transformational healing retreat blends a rich tapestry of healing modalities, deeply rooted in both traditional wisdom and contemporary healing practices. Over the course of a week, participants engage in:

  • Transformational workshops aimed at releasing trauma and reigniting purpose.

  • Indigenous cacao ceremonies to open the heart and facilitate emotional release.

  • Various movement modalities for physical revitalization and emotional grounding.

  • Different types of meditation to foster inner calm and self-awareness.

  • Soothing massage therapies to relax the body and mind.

  • Immersive jungle hikes to connect with nature's healing energy.

Beyond the Retreat - Group Coaching Packages:

The journey of healing extends beyond the retreat. To ensure continuity of support and care, we offer group coaching packages designed to prepare individuals for their retreat, and assist them in integrating their experiences thereafter.

Participants build a robust toolkit of resources that include:

  • Breathwork techniques to manage stress and anxiety.

  • Meditation practices to cultivate mindfulness and emotional balance.

  • Visualization exercises to empower motivation.

  • Mantras to instill resilience and self-belief.

These tools help our participants rise above challenges, allowing them to rely on their inner strength and wisdom rather than resorting to fear-based unconscious responses.

Please support our mission to move our participants from surviving to THRIVING!

Please join me in supporting Amistar Foundation and its mission of friendship, connection, and community.

Your involvement, whether through sharing this vision, cheering us on, or providing a loan or grant, will help shape a future of deep connection to the Earth and to each other. A future in which we thrive, not just survive.


If you can make introductions, desire more details, or have ideas to share. Together, let us create a legacy of positive change.
