Metamorphosis Gathering is a reset button for the soul, sweeping us away from the consumptive habits and demands of the world we inherited and ushering us into the generative world we imagine inhabiting. A more restorative way of living already exists in many places on earth, integrated with nature and open to be experienced, embodied, and elaborated upon by each who encounter it. Are you ready to take the next step? Discover and activate the new life within you when you enter the gate of Metamorphosis.
Finca Morpho is honored to unite once more these inspiring educators and facilitators with years of practice in their respective fields. Each carries essential teachings, tools and experience from a place of personal purpose. With compassionate understanding, they guide our individual processes as we playfully perform our roles in a collective transformation of the world we inhabit together.
Our host farm is located in the second most biodiverse place on the planet. On the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica we find ourselves immersed in the primal energies of the jungle, moved by the tidal rhythms of the ocean, and awed by the simple yet majestic life lived in harmony with nature.
Metamorphosis Gathering is a substance free event, this is important for maintaining a coherent field within which to connect and relate to each other deeply and authentically.
Activate the Imaginal World Awaiting Within You…
Context for Metamorphosis Gathering:
Throughout this retreat we reference the life cycle of a butterfly as our blueprint and road map for design and navigation of our transformation.
Nature provides the pattern, we observe and learn, then scale our growth in harmony with the existing flow. By applying this framework to our life we align and integrate with the cycles of earth, the universe, and ALL life.
Days 1-4: On The Ground
Our journey begins before you arrive so the first day onsite we simply land, acculturating to this new environment and energies by creating our space then connecting at opening ceremony. The second day is egg stage with workshops and activities that set conditions to hatch and summon the strength to break out. Day three crawls us through the caterpillar stage; the period where we consume information, practice skills, and develop habits to overcome environmental challenges.
We go inward on the fourth day for better understanding and patience by working through the chrysalis/pupa stage.
Days 5 and 6: Spread Your Wings and Fly
Upon emergence as a butterfly on day five, we take time for adjusting to our new form and comforting the transition of creating. Day six we are ready to fly! It's time to take wing, show the world what we have become and find our 'flutter' by connecting to collaborative networks that correspond to our uniqueness.
We conclude by collecting ourselves, exchanging with others, and giving gratitude for all we have both received and released.
Art and Music Throughout
Gather in The Living Library for creative expression activities, or at The Resource Center to repurpose and upcycle the materials awaiting new life.
Every night has space for you at The Sacred Fire Circle or The Beach Platform with authentic relating and acoustic music jams, then we 'amp' it up after closing ceremony in celebration with sacred visual presentation and performance of Yaima.
Estimated Time for Each Learning Track:
10 hours: Personal Flow Design
2 hours: Equine-Assisted Therapy
10 hours: Embodied Movement Practices
10 hours: Authentic Relating Games
5 hours: FeedForward sessions
4 hours: Ceremonial Council

This provides 40 Hours of Facilitated / Guided Programming over the course of 6 Days, leaving another 72 hours of daylight spaciousness for private journaling, storytelling with new friends. The sun rises and sets between 5 and 6 every morning and night, all year long in Costa Rica. And the jungle rises and rests early too, as do we, so quiet hours and dream times are asked to be respected.
