PAPER & DIAMOND
Paper & Diamond curates luxury experiential travel, highly sought-after wellness retreats, and unparalleled celebrations for life’s milestones, with a focus on both consultancy and production for a full-service experience. We believe that a change in physical location is the catalyst to spark a change in consciousness and redirect our lives’ paths towards a more deeply fulfilling way of existing. It is our passion to illuminate these profoundly rewarding journeys of insight and awakening for our clients.
Discover your next retreat into the comprehensive therapeutic and cultural practices of not only a new travel destination, but a new way of life: one that embraces holistic and Ayurvedic practice, while simultaneously addressing a highly personalized and bespoke
agenda that aligns with your ideal objectives for moving into a new realm of awareness. Paper & Diamond retreats are designed to awaken mind, body and soul through the merging of our expertise across all three of our realms: travel, wellness and events. This is achieved in tandem with our expert team of partners, including some of the world’s leading health and wellness experts, holistic nutritionists, celebrity health coaches and more.
THE FIVE PILLARS
Each Paper & Diamond retreat is innately designed to address the five pillars of health, consisting of sleep and reset, breathing, nutrition, movement and thought through the program's bespoke itinerary. Beyond this initial framework the team also builds individualized wellness programs around particular challenges and personal agendas our clients' desire to address, seng them up to enter new realms of happiness and fulfillment in their everyday lives.
THE SIX SENSES
In order to effectively transform conditioned programming for results that elevate health across the five pillars, Paper & Diamond taps into all six senses simultaneously for a full sensorial immersion into connecting with higher vibrations. This integrative wellness approach activates not only the five tactile senses of sight, sound, touch, smell and taste that we are accustomed to, but the elusive sixth sense as well, for which we utilize term 'spirit' to encompass the unperceived world. This world is where we tune into our own, as well as higher energies and wisdom, which are gateways for increased healing potential.
Next April 2021, the Paper & Diamond team will partner with Imiloa Institute as they together invite 36 esteemed guests to the 5 star eco-luxe retreat center, which is nestled in Costa Rica's Savegre Mountains, overlooking views of both the Pacific Ocean and surrounding Dominical Jungle.
Guests should anticipate a holistic transformation over the course of five nights and six days as the Paper & Diamond team coach them through a program of bespoke sessions and seminars spanning the fields of meditation, yoga, mindfulness, breathwork, nutrition and more.
