Nature is a powerful teacher and Heli has spent much of her life living, traveling and working in remote areas, often using Yogic and Shamanic journeying to open metaphysical doors.

Costa Rica is one of Heli’s great loves.

“Just sitting and absorbing the feeling of Costa Rica is a healing experience in itself and the concept of working with like-minded people while being surrounded by Costa Rica is a very precious gift.”
