About Nada Brahma Healing Center

Nada Brahma offers Healing retreats where you get to work with traditional Amazonian medicine and journey within to expand your consciousness and explore your inner world in a loving environment.  

We are not an Ayahuasca Center, we believe all healing begins from within. For this reason, we provide these plant medicines only to help you see deeper within.

We are here for people who are ready for their spiritual-healing journey.

Whether you arrive for a spiritual retreat or to address a physical ailment or illness, we will show you how to heal yourself with proper nutrition, holistic healing therapies, and traditional Amazonian medicine.

The Center

Nada Brahma is conveniently located, one hour away from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, within the mountains of San Ramon. 
We are blessed with views of lush green mountains overlooking the Gulf of Nicoya. Our central location makes it easy and accessible to journey to some of Costa Rica’s most sought after destinations.
We are two hours away from La Fortuna, home to Costa Rica’s best hot springs and zip lines, three hours away from Guanacaste, known for its beautiful beaches and surf culture, and one hour away from La Paz National Park, a nature sanctuary where you can experience wildlife amidst beautiful waterfalls.
The average temperature is 25 degrees Celsius in the daytime and 18 degrees Celsius in the early mornings and evenings. The feeling of being in perpetual springtime temperatures invite you to become one with nature. By far, the best part of San Ramon is its authentic village feel.
This is a place where you can feel completely immersed in Costa Rican culture and understand what the Ticos (Costa Rican people) refer to as “Pura Vida” or pure life! 
Our coordinator will happily assist you in planning your stay, including organizing your arrival and departure or transition to another location.

Our Team


Lead ceremony facilitator

Cancer touched my life at a very young age. My beloved, younger sister, Paola, was diagnosed with sarcoma at age 13. I observed all of the pain that this bought not only to her but to my entire family. Stress, fear, and deep despair rattled all of our lives as we watched Paola fight for life. Since we were conditioned to believe that it was the only real and safe option, my sister underwent conventional therapy (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation). Every treatment she received made her worse and sicker both physically and emotionally. She lost her battle with cancer at age 21. My sister was taken too early in life, but her desire to live always remained with me.

After Paola’s tragic death, I searched for purpose in my own life. Like most young adults, I was sold on the idea of going to college and living a conventional life.  After graduating and working for various companies as an engineer, I still felt that something was lacking. I left my career as an engineer in Costa Rica to travel to the United States with no job and no plan. By exerting great trust and allowing things to flow naturally, everything I needed at the time presented itself. I landed a good job, started a family, and even built a successful company. However, I still felt that my true calling was yet to be answered.

At this time in my life, spirituality was not a part of my mindset.

My first experience with Plant Medicine Ayahuasca completely changed my life! In my first experience with Plant Medicine, I felt I had discovered who I truly was as I experienced the illusion of this life, or what the Vedic texts refer to as “Maya” vanish in front of my eyes. The ceremony lasted for four hours, as we know it on the three-dimensional plane, but on another plane, where I was taken to, one in which time does not exist, I felt like an eternity of remembrance.

I felt I had been gifted many downloads of information and wisdom into my consciousness that night. The plant spoke to me and said, “remember, you have done Ayahuasca before. At the time, I couldn’t understand this because I had never even heard of Plant Medicine Ayahuasca before. Be that as it may, I felt deeply that this was a calling from the plant requesting that I be in service.  I attended ceremonies every two weeks for thee years with a shaman, who without saying many words was a very great teacher to me.

By placing myself in alignment with my true being, other medicines started showing themselves to me. Peyote, San Pedro and Kambo entered my field, each with its unique message and teachings. I learned a great deal about nutrition, juicing, detoxing, electromagnetic energy and much more.

Life reached a point where it felt impossible to keep all of the wisdom and teachings contained.

I am in complete gratitude seeing so many people come and go through ceremonies, all with their unique, profound, transformational experience.  Observing people as they identify the root of their problem, shed the layer of ego, clear past trauma, and simply connect with their inner being has been the message of Ayahuasca and I am simply here to help move that message forward.  My calling to work with this medicine grows stronger and stronger with each person that I am blessed to work with and serve this medicine to. I am in awe at the amazing healing properties Ayahuasca when combined with other natural plant medicines.  It is from this story, this seed of inspiration, that has resulted in the birth of the Nada Brahma Healing Center in Costa Rica.


Holistic Health Coach

With over 12 years of experience in holistic medicine and integrative nutrition, Fanny’s journey began with her own struggle with chronic pain for five years. Determined to recover her health, she delved into learning how to heal the body through natural medicine and a few years later discovered Ayahuasca, which changed her life more than seven years ago. Through this experience, she realized that there was more to healing than just the physical body. She began to explore the emotional level of healing and spent over five years working with late-stage cancer patients, learning about the many different perspectives of healing the body and the importance of addressing the emotions.

In the last four years, Fanny has been exploring spirituality as a key part of overall healing, discovering a deeper understanding of herself and the power within to heal, find balance and her true self. She is a pioneer in the coaching branch of health in Costa Rica, having graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York, one of the world’s largest nutrition schools, which empowers people to transform the world by learning how food can transform the body. This achievement led her to become one of the first Holistic Health Coaches in Costa Rica.

Fanny’s approach is to provide personalized tools that guide each participant towards self-discovery and exploration from different perspectives, in order to achieve their health and wellness objectives. Her focus is to offer each participant a personalized process where they can find a balanced life through support, knowledge, and compassion. She guides them to be aware of the importance of healthy eating and healing emotions from a holistic point of view and how it contributes to the healing process for themselves and the people around them.

Fanny believes that healing is a comprehensive approach, where we provide our body and mind with the right tools to achieve its natural healing. Her diverse knowledge has helped clients suffering from a wide range of chronic diseases and disorders to improve their lifestyles and free themselves from their conditions.
