Kambo Self Application course, Ayahuasca, Bufo & Breathwork
A spiritual healing retreat for those with Lyme disease & chronic illness in Nosara, Costa Rica
August 25- September 1
a wave of transformation
Kambo Casita welcomes you to Nosara, Costa Rica, to journey through a week of deep release and transformation.
Your experience is led by Nadine Purdy who has healed her chronic Lyme disease with plant medicines and spirituality. Our family at Kambo Casita creates a safe, attentive, and supportive space for your emotional cleansing and growth.
Our week together is designed to balance and guide you through your experience of release, joy, and deep connection to self. Your week incorporates three Kambo, two Ayahuasca, one Bufo, and two Clarity Breathwork ceremonies, alongside gentle activities during the day to move and process energies.
Integrating your experience throughout the week allows the space to process and receive lasting growth. The medicines blend together with other modalities throughout the week for you to somatically and consciously incorporate your shifts and messages. Integration shifts your experience from a week of your life into a clear path forward into health.
Each day, there will be space to discuss and learn about the medicines, spiritual healing, and creating a life of health. This is a space for you to learn to align your body, breath, mind, and energy based on wisdom traditions from around the world and science-backed methods. We will also engage in purification rituals such as flower baths and a fire ceremony to facilitate release.
Breathwork is a gentle yet powerful process to clear old patterns, conditioning, and emotions so that you can open into greater levels of consciousness and love. Most of us don’t breathe fully - since birth when the chord was cut too soon, we have been holding our breath, especially during times of stress. We are able to clear trauma and emotional debris by breathing through emotions so that we can connect more deeply with our essence. Breathwork during this retreat is specifically designed for integration: it brings messages and insights from the subconscious into your awareness in union with the medicines.
Integration and bringing the ceremony into life is an opportunity to release and process our individual work. A level of integration involves speaking about our experiences - oftentimes, when we allow words to flow through us, we come to profound realizations and clearer perspectives. We also provide additional individual support.
Finding stillness allows us to rejuvenate and practice the art of focus, which trains us for ceremony. When we can attain silence in our minds, we calm triggers that cause chemical reactions and manifest in our bodies. We will gather together each day for group healing meditations concentrating on relaxation and centering. We will utilize a variety of techniques such as guided visualization, mindfulness, conscious movement, and mantras.
Our two yoga sessions will incorporate breath, meditation, and gentle movement to help smooth our energy and ease our hearts, to foster a feeling of presence, and to support the integration process.

At the exact time of your birth, the planetary alignment tells us a story about who you are and who you are destined to become. By becoming conscious of your birth chart, a reading can be an enlightening and healing experience. Often, the patterns in our charts can help us better understand circumstances around dis-ease and ways to start moving forward. An hour reading includes the beginning of self-awareness through your natal chart, the cycles you are currently in, and the year ahead.
The Emotion Code takes physical symptoms or past traumas and identifies then releases the responsible emotions. While the conscious mind only has access to about 5-10% of information, this method is a proven way to communicate with the subconscious and other levels of universal awareness. Trapped emotions are brought to your conscious awareness and then cleared through energetic pathways in your system with the use of Nikken magnets, guided meditation, Ho’oponopono forgiveness, shamanic teachings, light frequencies, angel healing, and channeling.
Should you wish to experience more medicine during your stay, we offer the option to for an additional bufo or to stay the the following week for addtional private work. Please contact us for more information.
Pranassage is a synthesis of yoga & bodywork. It is an experience that incorporates assisted streched and body postures. In Pranassage, relaxation is the field in which intuition, meditation, concentration, awareness, integration and healing emerge. A wonderfully healing and intuitive practice rooted in the artful practice of sacred space for human connection.
We have a number of detox treatments available at Kambo Casita to support your body. We have found that clearing the body physically of toxins while working with the medicines facilitates the process of emotional release.

Tucked into the hillside of Garza, our property overlooks the sea and vibrant jungle. The space is woven with love and high vibrations to be a part of the medicine you receive. Wake up to a vision of morning fog lightly settling on the lush jungle mountains as monkeys swing by and eagles soar overhead. Kambo Casita offers a quiet, comfortable space for our guests to immerse themselves in profound healing.
Our guest house includes a kitchen, private and shared room options, indoor and outdoor living and dining spaces, and an infinity pool. We are a short walk to Garza beach and a 15-minute drive to the central surf and yoga town, Guiones/Nosara.
Each day, organic meals with fresh juices and coconut water are served by our chef. The food is cooked to provide for gluten free and vegan diets, infused with superfoods, detoxifying ingredients, and love.
Meet your facilitators
Nadine was drawn to the medicine path after experiencing challenging events that caused her to search for new modalities of healing. After Kambo saved her life, there was no question that her journey would be to serve it; as she likes to say, she didn't choose to do this but the medicine chose her. Nadine left the high-intensity fashion world to follow her ancestry's path of medicine women - holding these medicines is in her blood.
Nadine has over 15 years of experience with plant medicines and has trained with many traditions, including those from Brazil, Colombia, Peru, and Mexico. Though she has learned from many sources, her foundation is the Santo Daime, an Ayahuasca-based spiritual group that returns to the pure essence of love and light. Nadine draws from these teachings in combination with her own knowledge of Western dis-ease to create a personal, safe space based on the individual receiver. She has experience in supporting the healing of many conditions, from chronic illnesses and cancer to addiction and those looking for spiritual growth.
Nadine is highly skilled in facilitating a safe and sacred space. She incorporates sound and energy healing techniques as guidance throughout your experience. She has been initiated into and holds a sacred contract with each medicine she serves. All the medicine used is ethically sourced from longstanding relationships that have been developed on a mutual respect for the medicine spirits, the energy put into harvesting, and the planet.
Annie Ladino moved from Chicago to New York when she was 18 to pursue a career in fashion. Her creative expression through styling bloomed while working at Elle Magazine and personally styling celebrities. During her Saturn Return, Annie discovered astrology while working alongside Susan Miller, the resident astrologer at Elle Magazine. Her world and spirituality expanded through this understanding of planetary energies. The significance of awareness of cycles and personality expression through astrology in Annie’s own life inspired her to deepen her studies with Rebecca Gordon, the astrologer at Harper's Bazaar. After moving to LA, she continued her studies at Carrol Wrighter Astrological foundation in Hollywood where she met her current mentors.
Annie met Nadine and came to the medicine during a period of her life when she was seeking deep emotional and physical healing. Her passion is to spread this beautiful modality with an accessible, grounded approach to her family, friends, and anyone looking to walk a path of healing and awakening. Now, Annie has the freedom to travel the world and live between Costa Rica, LA, and NY because she was lucky enough to choose a sister who works for an airline.
