  • In synergy, since 2006, mindful fellow travelers from our global community have come to participate in our council, with a beginner's mind, for an uplifting experience of traditional plant medicine maestros, with experienced ethnobotanists and skilled holistic health practitioners, for an unforgettable adventure and celebration in wellness and renewal, in ecological and self-discovery!

    Experience the prehistoric origins of Plant Medicine Traditions from the Ecuadorian Amazon as taught and lived by the Siekopai elders for centuries. Ethnobotanist Jonathon S. Miller Weisberger is an enthusiastic storyteller whose extensive and knowledgeable understanding of rainforest medicinal flora and indigenous life and world view is unique. A rainforest conservation advocate, he has collaborated ethnobotanical studies with 5 distinct indigenous communities and tribes in the Ecuadorian Amazon and Andes from 1990 - 2000. He is author of Rainforest Medicine: Preserving Indigenous Science & Biodiversity in the Upper Amazon, director of Council for Cultural and Biological Diversity (CCBD), and steward of Guaria de Osa (Orchid of Osa) Ecolodge. He is an intrepid and knowledgeable rainforest guide with more than 15 years of ground-level experience. A hike with Jonathon must not be missed as he guides you to explore the primary, spectacular rainforest surrounding Guaria de Osa.

    Rainforest plant medicine ceremonies include:

    • 3 Sunrise Renewals beginning 3:00 in the morning on Days 2, 3 & 4
      Note: The wellness & vitality enhancing effects of sunrise renewals balance the body's pH and are crucial to any healing or detoxification program & for preventing disease. In today's modern society, most people are acidic as a result of diet, sedentary (or overactive) lifestyles, stress, pollution, and the accumulation of chemical and heavy metal toxins.
    • 3 traditional Shamanic Healing Meditations on Nights 5, 7 & 9
      This time-tested millenary tradition from the Siekopai People of the Amazon, for personal and planetary re-birth, uses well-prepared, highly refined plant medicine to promote spiritual & physical renewal, allowing one to move closer to spiritual understanding, personal growth, vitality, wellness and renewal, in quantum leaps!

    GUARIA de OSA Ecolodge, is a rainforest, ocean and cultural heritage discovery center — immersed in a timeless setting amidst a people-friendly tropical nature-sanctuary on COSTA RICAS Osa Peninsula. The Osa Peninsula, also known as “the Little Amazon by the Ocean,” is home of one of the last great stands of Central American Tropical Rainforests, where a wilderness coast and paradise beaches borders a sparkling and pristine Pacific Ocean. Within walking distance of Corcovado National Park, and just south of Drake Bay on the westernmost cove of the Osa Peninsula, Guaria is embedded in a “biological treasure trove” a “true terrestrial emerald.”

    Within a private and secluded ethnobotanical garden, abundant with palms of many kinds, exuberant ornamentals, medicinal plants and vines, fruit trees and food plants, our lodges are a stroll's pace from the sparkling Pacific Ocean - a gigantic marine ecosystem and protected nautical zone - a sea temple and fish heaven!

    By visiting Guaria de Osa you are directly supporting Rainforest Conservation Projects in remote rainforest regions of Central and South America. Percentages of all funds generated are channeled ground level efforts of the Council for Cultural and Biological Diversity.
