I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com

Sat Yoga SATSANG - March 3 - Escazu, Costa Rica

Sat Yoga Satsang This Saturday! 
Saturday - March 3 - 7pm    

Sat Yoga June Satsang!We joyfully welcome you to join us for our traditional monthly open Satsang. For those who are not Sat Yoga students, our Satsangs offer you a portal into the atmosphere of a serious transformational school and a joyful spiritual community. It will give you an opportunity to meditate in a positive group energy field; to ask questions about spirituality, metaphysics, psychology, yogic relationships, paranormal phenomena, and the meaning of life; and to discover the gems of wisdom humanity has inherited from all the world's great spiritual traditions, philosophers, saints, and sages. After the meditation and discussion, we will share a delightful and simple prasad of fresh fruits and a heavenly baked treat from Radha's Kitchen. Please note that this Satsang will differ from past Satsangs, as many of our students and community members are doing service at the ashram, and therefore we will offer fruit prasad, cookies, and drinks only. (You are invited to bring a fruit offering, though you are not required to. If you would like to contribute to our prasad, please let us know before Saturday at 10:00am what you will bring. We ask that you not bring other foods such as dips or baked goods. We would like to keep the offering simple, so only fruits will be accepted.) 
Following the satsang, some of our sangha musicians will join together in the back garden (weather permitting) to create some divine melodies. If you have an instrument, drum, voice, or song that you would like to share, please bring it along.  
Schedule: This Saturday, March 3, at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm.  
No Fee: Satsangs are FREE (but, of course, Love offerings are accepted with gratitude, and they enable us to continue offering these sacred gatherings)

Parking: We are asking all to park outside of the institute, but to please be mindful of our neighbor's lawns and property when choosing your parking spot. And please help our guard and his family with a good tip! 
Please Register As Soon As Possible by calling our volunteer staff at 2288-3294 or confirm by email. Please arrive on time so as not to interrupt the meditation experience for others.  
We look forward to sharing the sacred space with you, and being with each other in Truth. Om Shanti.  

Sat Yoga Seminar I - March 10 & 11, 2012 
(This seminar is a prerequisite for participation in all other seminars and/or advanced classes)  
Sat Yoga Seminar I
This paradigm-shifting seminar will introduce you to all the fundamental concepts employed in Sat Yoga classes. It will enable you to participate fully in discussions and provide you with a larger and more encompassing identity and set of tools with which to navigate through life. The insights you will gain from this weekend seminar will crack open the ego shell and reveal the Pearl of Great Price at the center of your Being. It will shake you out of your comfortable (and/or miserable) egoic certainties and take you beyond the event horizon of mundane "normal" life. It will reveal that the sense of lack that plagues your life has all along been the gateway to eternal bliss-but now you will know how to make that bliss forever real and actualized in your everyday existence.

Not only will you receive the conceptual blueprint of the illusory egoic complex which has been ruling your mind, but you will be further aided by guided meditations that take you into the higher dimensions of Being, enabling you to liberate yourself in real-time from the delusions of Maya. You will learn the art of total mastery over the ego mind. You will learn to wield the sword of the spiritual samurai, the archetype of the flaming sword of Truth, and cut through the Gordian knot of the false self in one fell swoop. You will learn that you can silence the mind at will and ceaselessly abide in the deep silence of divine love and serenity that is our Supreme Reality.

Be a true pathfinder. You must have the courage and willingness to take the journey of Self-discovery all the way to its glorious denouement. Join us for this seminar if you dare-to be great.
