Ashley says "I LOVE Costa Rica! I visited the Farm of Life with Chris earlier this year and underwent emotional, physical, and spiritual transformations. There is something about being in nature, expecailly in Costa Rica's untouched jungle, that is incredibly heart opening, balancing and healing. The sounds, the fresh clean air and spring water, the land, tropical fruits, organic greenhouse, animals and the people, I could only describe this place as pure love."
