Since the early days of HighExistence, people have always asked us:
“When are you going to organize something in real life? A real-life gathering?”
Now, the time has come.
On a pristine, paradisal beach in Costa Rica, at the edge of a mountainous rainforest…
There is a little slice of heaven.
It is here where we will gather, share, reflect, connect, and transcend the ordinary.
We will practice.
Contemplate, converse, and laugh.
There will be…
Plant medicine ceremonies.
Among much more.
Five days of peak experiences designed to raise the ceiling of your potential and kindle the divine spark within you.
We are aiming for deep lasting friendships and identity-level spiritual transformations.
Imagine yourself joining the team behind HighExistence and a handpicked group at a truly once-in-a-lifetime intimate event.
“Apotheosis” is an ancient Greek word that means, “the becoming or making into a god,” or “the highest point in the development of something; culmination or climax.”
For us, Apotheosis symbolizes those heroes who voluntarily journey beyond the threshold of their current world, overcome fear, cast off limitations, and are then reborn.
They experience an illumination of their own Being.
On your journey toward Apotheosis, you will be initiated into deep healing and awakening practices that have been handed down to us over thousands of years from the wisdom traditions of the past.
We invite you to try all that your heart desires, venture with us into the unknown, and stretch yourself beyond the boundaries of your current world.
This will be balanced by the tropical beach where we will drop back, relax, and integrate our epic transformations.
Apotheosis will provide you an unforgettable 5-day peak experience, which will expand and deepen your consciousness and independence: a climactic event that you will remember for years to come.
For a few precious days, we will forget time and the outside world and dare to aspire upward to the highest ideal we can collectively imagine.

Finca Exotica is a remote and tranquil retreat space nestled in the lush jungle of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula. The area has been described by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on the planet.”
This gorgeous eco-lodge offers as accommodation several comfortably-appointed jungle tents and cabins scattered throughout the property (private and shared), as well as a central living and dining area, a beautiful yoga and ceremony space, and stunning diverse ethnobotanical gardens throughout. An exceptional stretch of gorgeous beach shared only with a few local residents offers breathtaking sunset swims.
Transport to and from San Jose international airport is included. You will have to find your way to the country yourself.
You fly to Costa Rica. We pick you up.
—To acclimatize for Apotheosis, we highly recommend extending your stay a few days before and after the retreat to enjoy the beaches, explore the culture, and be mesmerized by the stunning nature. Pura vida!—
We strongly recommend arriving on the 19th or before and departing on the 26th or after. If you do arrive on the 20th, you'll need to arrive by 6am, as we'll be departing that morning. And if you do fly out on the 25th, book a flight for 10:30pm or later, as we likely won't arrive back in San Jose until early evening. If you want to book extra nights at the retreat place, please let us know through your booking and we will contact you.
