Gathering will blend music and medicine in an intimate journey of healing and self-discovery
Reunion Costa Rica (Reunion), a not-for-profit center founded in 2019 that provides transformational ayahuasca and psilocybin journeys for healing and personal growth, is honored to announce its collaboration with musician, producer, and ceremony guide East Forest to host The Walk Home, a transformational musical retreat, at its Costa Rica location from February 4-10, 2024.
The Walk Home will be an intimate gathering with East Forest, who will provide live musical accompaniment to Reunion’s programming. The event will be open to 35 guests and will include musically-guided ceremonies throughout the seven-day, six-night retreat, alongside meditation, breathwork, yoga, and movement practices.
“The alignment in values between Reunion and East Forest, particularly in our respect for the teachings and philosophies of Ram Dass, has guided us to do this event together,” said Reunion Founder and Steward Brad Wells. “Our Wisdom Keepers and Contributors take pride in all of the journeys we offer, and music is an important, healing, and joyful part of the experience. The chance to work with an artist beloved by the community in this way is an exceptional opportunity, and we are grateful to welcome East Forest to Reunion.”
“My music has come from my own experience and connection with ceremonial journeys,” said East Forest. “I look forward to sharing this passion at Reunion.”
In addition to his work as a multimedia artist encompassing studio albums and collaborations with fellow artists and research institutes, East Forest has spoken or presented at Stanford d.school, Naropa, SXSW, and Yale University.
