Costa Rica is pulling me in. For many years I was seeking a place to live where I could feel at home. It wasn’t so much a matter of climate but of finding a place where I am both fully nourished and fully received. Eight years ago, Stella and I moved to Asheville, North Carolina, hoping that it would be such a place. It could have been, but being fully received is more than finding people you resonate with. Lands and waters have their own spirits. Sometimes you arrive somewhere and every road is blocked, nothing comes easily, you meet the right people at the wrong time, or the wrong people at the right time, end up in the wrong house, and there’s a hole in the bottom of your ice cream cone. But sometimes you arrive somewhere and every door opens for you. That’s how it has been for us in our month-long visit to La Ecovilla (LEV) in Costa Rica.
