Welcome to Paradise!
Welcome to Paradise! You are entering Tierra de Suenos (Place of Dreams) in Playa Chiquita. It is located eight miles outside of Puerto Viejo, a tourist retreat on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
Tierra de Suenos was the magical place where my daughter, Kaleema and I first came to begin our work together after leaving San Jose, the busy capital of Costa Rica. We traveled four hours by bus through some of the most beautiful mountains for hours before we began to see the Caribbean Ocean with it rolling waves washing up on shore. We later returned with my friend of thirty years, Stephanie Berry who is also Kaleema's godmother. During our time there we engaged in healing rituals and nurturing ourselves.
At a later date I will be saying more about the purpose of the trip and more details on what it entailed. Just know, it was magical beyond words, as the pictures will convey!
Blessed Be! Rev. Dr. Qiyamah A. Rahman
