Farm of Life, Costa Rica is in the Southwest Costal Region, near the Pacific Ocean and halfway between Dominical and San Isidro in the Diamante Valley (Valley of Diamonds).
At Finca de Vida (Farm of Life), special attention has been given to amplifying the natural healing potential of the land and creating beautiful spaces for relaxation and restoration. The farm campus includes a spring-fed bathing pool, a chemical free swimming pool, organic farm, greenhouse, ornamental garden, meditation spaces, and barefoot walking trails! Each of the four corners of the farm have been set with quartz crystal points with coiled coper wires to amplify the powerful natural earth frequencies in order to optimize the healing potential of the land! Finca de Vida also has installed a Tesla shield with a 10k range pulsing 24/7 in order to offset the negative impacts of the Farm’s WiFi capabilities. A true haven for natural healing and restoration!
