About The place and the creator

In the year 2008, the beautiful Wellness Arenal project began through destiny and universal guidance. Born in Germany and raised in Spain, I arrived in Costa Rica after sailing for three years looking for a new home. I ended up in this rainforest paradise, where I immediately knew this was my place on earth to live. Twelve years of living in the jungle has opened my eyes and curiosity to this impressive ecosystem, which is way more related to our personal state, health and growth, than I originally realized. In every aspect of nature, there is a natural resistance before the breakthrough of a new life, shape, or state. We can see the same mirrored in ourselves. Often what we see as stressful, depressing, or disempowering, or in moments we unconsciously choose to feel anxiety or any other negative emotion, it is just the beginning of a beautiful new YOU on its way. Like the butterfly emerging from the cocoon, or the flower turning into a juicy fruit, challenge and resistance often leads to breakthrough and transformation.

After 6 years in real estate until 2008, I was 80 pounds overweight and had a wide collection of emotional wrecks stored in my soul. I was taking daily pills for high blood pressure, gastritis, and some other serious body talk. In a short time of balancing nutrition, emotions, and bad life habits, these problems disappeared! The lifetime treatments the doctors had prescribed were no longer necessary. Job, friends, family, and environment have a heavy impact on our personal and spiritual growth and health. I feel I needed to go through that breakdown to create my new environment and life, and to complete my successful search for equilibrium. I have found emotional, physical, and spiritual balance through the creation of this wonderful place and many years of holistic studies. And I want to share it with you!
