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 And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise.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)

DR DOUG Lehrer - Pioneer in EPIGENETIC MEDICINE (mind-body-energy medicine) • QUANTUM HEALING - in Costa Rica December 2013

Dec. 24  -  "Dr. Doug is staying into the first week of January. So, awesome peeps, what would you like to improve in your life for real, "have healthy happy relationships, heal deadly emotions, reduce stress/anxiety, improve self-esteem, really heal a physical illness, make taking pharmaceuticals unnecessary (because you healed whatever you take the pills for), look & feel 10 years younger, reconnect soul to spirit, heal your heart (break), heal chronic pain, add 10 quality years to your life, break through creative, success or money blocks/sabotage, remove repetitive negative behaviors, patterns, cravings in your life...? Dr. Doug is the key and he's working on his new book just down the street from me. He's agreed to see any of my friends - I got my miracle, Erich is now experiencing healing, who's next???"

So, the doctor who worked with on Wendy Bishop Strebe over the course of 8 days in early November, and who has put her body on the healing path from Rheumatoid Arthritis, (which she was diagnosed with in my 20's), has a small window of time to come back to Costa Rica if we can generate enough committed interest.

If enough people sign up, DR. DOUG Lehrer will return to Costa Rica (at Casa Metta/Wendy's in Heredia) in between his other sessions around the world from

 December 18-30, 2013
to work INTENSIVELY with a family, couple's or individual's who are IN NEED OF SERIOUS HELP.

This could be for chronic pain, weight-loss, addictions, trauma or anything that you cannot manage to overcome.  Wendy suffered from migraines regularly her whole adult life and she had some sessions with Dr. Doug and has not had a migraine since my second day of treatments!!! 

This is an amazing opportunity as there is no one else in Costa Rica with the quantum medicine knowledge of this man.

(Shondra [who is in the process of being trained by Dr. Doug] shared "He is most interested in working with a few people, who are ready to commit to a life-changing shift, by healing their unconscious and cellular levels of residual trauma that are causing the mess in your life.  So check him out, and then check INSIDE. Is this YOU? Your family? Your marriage? It is probably the most life-changing thing one could choose to do."  She referred to his work as a technique known as DEEP B.E.S.T.)
Wendy Bishop Strebe shared her experience :  "
Dr. Doug is here. He is ready to help you!!!! I urge you to contact him today. I am healed from an incurable disease. Take advantage of this internationally known top doctor in the field of healing!!! He consistently cures people, like he did me. I am no longer suffering. I am no longer on the dying track. This is such an amazing opportunity for anyone who is suffering! He is back because I told him I had many friends with problems that could use his help!!!

Your nervous system runs your body. It tells your organs, glands, muscles, joints what to do. It is either telling your body to survive or it tells it to relax and heal. Survival is not okay. It takes greater than 50% breakdown of the body, before you have any symptoms.

If you have symptoms, you need help. In a week, Dr. Douglas Paul Lehrer can raise your function levels greatly, so your body can begin to heal itself. Low function causes symptoms and kills you. Dr. Lehrer will help with your physical, emotional and mental process. I urge you to contact him via his Facebook page, and come see him. He is here until 30 December, so don't miss this opportunity. He may stay longer, but may not. I am living proof this man can create miracles!!! Or call him at 8729-1101!!!!

"You basically lay on a massage table and he works through the energy meridians of your body. It is similar to Kinesiology where he is communicating with your bodies internal computer system to move your body to a place of healing. He helps you get beyond any trauma in your life - illness, injury, accidents, things that happened to you, which is where most illness and pain comes from. It is just relaxing and thinking deeply about things in your life which may have gotten stuck in the cellular structure of your body. If you read his Facebook page and website, he has some other info as well. I am just trying to explain from my perspective. He is highly trained in quantum medicine, which is also highly intuitive. All I can say it it is working for me and I believe in it wholeheartedly."

“I help people notice and clear the blockages in their life that have kept them stuck in the past.  Once we clear the unconscious memory held in the brain and soul-spirit, the body can heal itself for the client's optimal well-being.  This healing transforms the body and emotions at the cellular DNA level.” Dr. Doug Lehrer

With Dr. Doug Lehrer's Epigenetic medicine techniques he can find the stress induced, memory retained, physical and emotional blockages that cause pain, inflammation and aging issues, and chronic health, weight and injury issues that opens the abundant flow to vital health, happiness, fulfillment, satisfaction, inner peace, personal success, financial and even spiritual well-being.

Based on a simple strength and resistance test on arms and legs, Dr. Lehrer reads the brain and body for information about where the person is stuck in “Survival Mode”, which occurs when we afraid and stressed.  When we are trying to survive, our body creates pain and the physical and emotional symptoms of disease.  Dr. Lehrer gently applies light pressure on specific points on the head and back, which turns on the body's ability to heal itself and to balance the energy systems and emotions that are controlling the person.

This healing process updates, clears and resolves issues at the physical DNA-cellular and emotional-energetic levels.  It heals painful, chronic and difficult health conditions and emotional stress patterns.  As a result, the survival physiology - the reason people lack health, happiness and success - within the brain, body and soul, disappears.

Internationally known doctor and Bio Energetic Medicine healer, best selling author, speaker and host of his own radio show on CBS radio, Dr. Lehrer now lives in Los Angeles, California. He has treated thousands of clients, including many A list Entertainers and Film industry.  Dr. Doug Lehrer travels the world, training practitioners in mastering the epigenetic/energy medicine called, "Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique"™.

For the past 3 years, as Director of his non-profit foundation, "Richin-Health",  Dr. Lehrer has trained hundreds of practitioners in Israel and Palestine. He and his practitioners help children heal the physical and emotional wounds of war, (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).  Dr. Lehrer's Bio Energetic Medicine and Healing has been studied at major university medical schools and colleges. It is a proven and effective system for turning on the body's own ability to heal and improve physical and emotional functions.

 “I am in Costa Rica to check out locations for my health, youth and longevity retreats.  Since I have been here, I have been asked to speak, treat and work with those who would like to create healing and transformational miracles in their lives.  I am especially gratified by helping children to resolve stressful family situations.  Adults can expect quantum leaps in personal mastery and professional success. They can also expect to live in a healthier, younger and more vital body”, says Dr. Lehrer.

Many clients come to Dr. Lehrer for help with stubborn weight & belly fat, aging related complaints, addictions, eating disorders, chronic pain & inflammation, allergies, fatigue, sleep problems, digestive problems, depression, anxiety, low resistance to stress, adrenal exhaustion, fibromyalgia, relationship, success and failure issues, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, Lymes, ADD, ADHD, ASD, chronic& other serious health conditions.  People even come to see Dr. Lehrer when they don't know what's wrong with them. They discover many problems they have given up on soon heal, change and transform their life deeply.

Dr. Lehrer states, "The healing changes are potentially immediate and permanent. Chronic issues may take more visits to correct deeply engrained patterns that keep them stuck in survival (non-healing)mode. The more patterns you clear out from your subconscious brain, the more self-confidence and self-worth you have, the better and more loving your relationships become, and the better the overall quality of your life."

Great Post, Vicki! Thank YOU! Calling forward those who feel the inner call to work with Dr. Doug to make themselves known, and help bring him here again.

Just to be clear, he is still making travel plans, and is due in Switzerland Jan 7 or 8th. You might align the places where you have dates, to reflect that.

Deep Blessings,
Rev. Shondra ~ Rose of Light
