Married to Paradise

Most memoirs today present heart-breaking tragedies. In contrast, Married to Paradise—though full of dramatic tension—is fresh, positive, and encouraging. It is about choosing an alternative life and pursuing it with one’s whole heart. This is a book about claiming the courage to live a unique and abundant life beyond the traditional matrix.

Life requires true courage these days, no matter where or how one lives. The destruction of rainforests, climate change, and uncertain economies all present challenges to the more conventional lives people have relied on. Through experiencing this book, you may find your own ability to imagine a truly remarkable life and take the steps to make it happen. This book utilizes the invisible forces of the Universe combined with one’s own powerful hands to fulfill our most profound dreams.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Lana Wedmore in Brooklyn and practicing yoga with her virtually. Her beautiful spirit and fascinating story come to life on the pages of this book. From her challenging childhood in Colorado to her globetrotting and finally finding her place and purpose in the universe in Costa Rica, hers is a tale you can’t put down. When it seems impossible to realize her dream of building a lodge in the Osa Peninsula, Lana, with the help of many, manages to accomplish this amid much adversity. It’s an amazing story, inspiring. Add this to Lana’s quest to save the rainforest through her White Hawk Foundation and it’s even more amazing. (A portion of the proceeds from the book benefit the WHF.) I’ve heard so much about the lodge and helped raise funds for the WHF through the efforts of a Brooklyn yoga studio (YogaSole) which takes retreats to Lana’s Luna Lodge and after reading “Married to Paradise,” I’m even more determined to go visit. A feel-good book of triumph about weathering life’s ups and downs and always following your dreams.

From the beginning, you understand Lana’s passion for nature and freedom. It is deeply rooted in her soul. She does a good job of explaining how her dreams evolved, and showed us the path to their success. Comfortable in my stable life, it was refreshing to read her nomadic tales and witness her adventurous side.

I have never traveled to Costa Rica but first thing I did after finishing this book is google the Luna Lodge. Wow! I now wish to go!

This book is for all nature lovers and anyone wishing to explore the Costa Rican rainforest! Or like me, just to dream about it!

Lana Wedmore was a skier from Colorado when she went on a trip to Costa Rico that changed her life forever. She not only returned to the area to live, she began plans to build an Eco lodge and Yoga retreat. Many mishaps and problems occurred along the way but she was not deterred from her dream. This is her story of how she gained the confidence to do what others told her could not be done. I enjoyed this retelling of her story and especially enjoyed her triumph of building her lodge which today is very successful. A very inspiring story.

This book is a MUST READ if you are either preparing for a visit to the incomparable Luna Lodge in Costa Rica or trying to re-capture the feeling of being there.  But this book can and will be enjoyed by anyone with an adventuresome spirit. Lana’s story of courage, passion, and resilience will reinforce the best qualities in each reader, especially the willingness to follow one’s intuition.

Nature is truly the best Medicine and the state of your mind designs the state of your health. Nature helps you fall in love with yourself, and likewise, with others because it is a reflection of you. Nature can help you find your true health and happiness. It brings peace back into your life without you even realizing it because it awakens your senses. It provides an actual calming effect. It will also bring you back to the present moment faster than anything. And the present moment is the best place to be.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.


The word Reiki comes from Rei, meaning “a supernatural force or spiritual intelligence,” and Ki (qi), meaning “life energy.” It is generally translated as “universal life force energy.”

Reiki is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy and universal light. Reiki comes from the heart, not the head.

Reiki is one of the most effective ways to holistically take care of yourself. This spiritual Japanese hands on or distant healing practice helps you to relax, not just physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. With just one session, your energetic system begins to balance itself and you feel more at peace. It helps to ease pain, tension, and stress.

Shamanic Reiki

Shamanism and Reiki work together very well because they are both spiritual modalities. They compliment each other because they both balance and harmonize the subtle body. Reiki is working through the heart and Shamanism is founded on the view that all life, not just human life, has consciousness. The intelligence that infuses life empowers the shaman to transmute disease and harmonize imbalance. The truths of both Shamanism and Reiki are discovered through direct personal relationships. As a Healer one is able to intuitively understand that the Spirit world interfaces ours and everything within it can be communicated and interacted with.

Shamanism is one of the oldest practices of spirituality that exists today. It’s roots are buried thousands of years in our past. Indigenous shamanism teaches that nature can balance and revitalize and shift consciousness; it opens us to invisible and intrinsic energies that most of us are unaware of.

Each of us has the potential of being given a gift by the divine, which results in the body and soul becoming unified… a great many people will experience the blessings of the divine… Through it, the human being will first be made healthy, and then peace of mind and joy in life will be increased.

Cacao Ceremony

Both the Aztec and Mayan ancient civilizations held “ Cacao Ceremonies”. They obviously knew instinctively, what we now know scientifically. Cacao, the seed that serves as the basic ingredient for chocolate, has numerous health benefits! Traditionally, people drank Cacao not only for medical health, but also for spiritual awakening and creative guidance. Recent scientific studies point out the health benefits of a cup of pure cacao. Pure cacao beans contain numerous vitamins, minerals, and pure antioxidants. Drinking cacao releases feel good endorphins and increases blood flow. Therefore, for ceremonial purposes, it creates a “ natural high!”

Today, Cacao ceremonies may vary widely. They may be as simple as sharing a cup of cacao with a small group, reciting a mantra and raising a toast to an intention, or they may be a sophisticated, orchestrated spiritual ceremony for a large group.

Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing is the English Translation of the Japanese term “Shinrin- Yoku”, the ancient practice of simply immersing oneself in nature. This practice was revitalized in Japan in the 1980’s when scientific evidence revealed that simply spending time in nature produced measurable health benefits— both physically and psychologically. As a result, there is a worldwide movement to Get Back to Nature and Lana has trained to be a certified Forest Therapy Guide capable of leading you on a meaningful journey to lift the power of your senses as you travel with her in Nature.

Forest bathing is the practice of immersing yourself in nature in a mindful way using your senses to discover a whole range of benefits physical, mental, emotional and social.

Sound Healing

Sound therapy is a form of energy work that is used to tap into the body’s vibrational pitch. Sound Healing is actually a return to ancient cultural practices that uses chants, singing bowls and other instruments to restore health and relieve pain. Many people are just now learning how to tap into these feelings and discovering that this is energy that can be used to open one’s heart and soul. Energy is all around us at all times and when we use Sound Healing to tap into the energy of the Universe miracles can happen.

A person does not hear sound only through the ears; he hears sound through every pore of the body. It permeates the entire being, and according to its particular influence, either slows or quickens the rhythm of the blood circulation; it either awakens or soothes the nervous system


Yoga means “ union.” Therefore, yoga brings into alignment the body, mind and soul. Yoga is truly a science and a type of Art for me. It is an active intelligence that is awakening your whole body and bringing you back to the moment, which is the best place to be. The mind follows the habits of the breath and the body so when you can control the breath you can control your mind and body and vice versa.

I have been doing yoga for over 30 years and teaching for over 20 years. Yoga has truly saved my life, physically, mentally and spiritually. I could never have built my Lodge if I had not had yoga in my life. Yoga is life for me and it is a time I set aside each day to practice breathing deeply so as to quiet my mind, to exercise so as to strengthen my body, and to meditate to get in touch with my soul—my voice within. A daily practice has been proven to strengthen mental clarity and sharpness, emotional positivity and inspiration, and physical well- being. Come join me. I will definitely cater to your personal needs.
