⠀ We wrapped up our “Connect and Play” Retreat Saturday and an incredible week it was!! So grateful to the gracious souls that trusted us enough to spend a week in paradise with us!!
We surfed 🏄🏼♂️& our guests all stood up 🏄🏻♀️& impressed us! We practiced new yoga 🧘🏻♀️ poses, mediations, chants 🙏🏼 & breathing 🌬 exercises & learned so much about yoga theory! We ate 3 delicious 🤤, ORGANIC 🍔 plant-based meals daily & we all went to the farmer’s 👨🌾 market as a group to collect our veggies for the week!! We also joined with community 🎸 to play music 🎶 at the market. We watched many sunsets 🌅 and toasted lots of drinks 🍻. We danced 💃🏻 our hearts ♥️ out at Ecstatic Dance to epic beats. We paddleboarded around Cabo Blanco Nature 🌳 Reserve in crystal blue waters 🌊. We hung out at Sunday Funday and enjoyed bonfires, fire 🔥 dancers & amazing vibes. We learned chef 👨🏼🍳 Russ’ ways in the kitchen with a cooking 🔪class! We watched a breathtaking sunset from an Infiniti pool as we sipped wine 🍷 and our bonds strengthened. We watched monkeys 🐵 play & rode ATVs through jungles & waterfalls!
And those were just the activities. We truly lived like locals. But what’s more important is that we became a family. We created a tight-knit community of love 💕 & acceptance for the week. Each person had room to explore 🔍, inquire, experiment 🧪, eat new foods 🥥, try on new ways of being... all free from judgement. All enveloped with love, support & encouragement. 🥰 and this is what stuck with people at the end of the week!!!
Our next Ayahuasca retreat is May 4-11 in Cabuya.
Psssstttt..... 🤫 We have some SUPER exciting news 🗞 to share and it involves a new house 🏡 where you can come stay on-site with us and retreat year round (‼️) so stay tuned for full details. In the meantime, you can check out my website rimathejunglegirl.com/connectplay to get a sneak peak 👀 at the action!!
BIG thanks 💥 to our photographer @mister.island for these epic photos. And to our incredible guests @jontea_ramos@mrtopsnek & Sylvia. And to the love 💕 of my life and my partner in crime @russ.magic - you truly are so special for putting up for my crazy 😜 ass.
The early morning commute...😜
I can’t believe we’re still less than halfway through this epic South African sure trip, sooooo many waves and adventures!
And all this time in the water is certainly paying off, everyone’s surf ability is going from strength to strength
...even if my arms do feel like noodles right now 😂
The #Suntribe team in Costa Rica with the local vehicle of choice: a quad! 💪 The best (and sometimes the only) way to get around here on mostly unpaved roads. People look like they've come straight from the set of Mad Max when you see them roaring along the dusty roads here: wearing skiing goggles and scarves over their mouths, riding standing up to avoid the bumps. Great fun! 👐

LCM Song Of The Day: ‘Waves’ - @jeremyloops
Our next LCM featured artist is Cape Town based singer-songwriter Jeremy Loops. The melodic and catchy ‘Waves’ is taken from his latest album ‘Critical As Water’ released in March last year.
Jeremy is currently on tour and will be headlining at The O2 Brixton Academy on November 23rd.
Juxtaposing booming city rhythms with lilting folk, Jeremy Loops perfectly captures the duality of his South African life. The extremes aren't new to the singer, who by day travels to the furthest corners of Africa to battle deforestation through his organization, Greenpop, and by night resumes as raconteur for raucous fans around the world.
