Michael O’Shea is from the Reno, Nevada area currently living in Costa Rica. He is a Life
Transformation and Wellness Mentor focusing on personal advancement and spiritual
awakening. Having built his own 9-week self-development program he currently works with
people on a mental and emotional level to cultivate the change they are seeking to have and to
become more fearless in their actions to create the life they deserve.


On a spiritual and energetic level he has co-created a healing retreat community with his sister to support and
encourage seekers of a more profound life transformation. He finds extreme pleasure in
organizing and facilitating retreats to educate others in simple life skills people can use in their
day-to-day life to discover more joy and fulfillment in a more simplistic way. Michael and his
sister hold a lot of integrity towards post retreat integration and offer ongoing monthly support
groups and gathering for all those seeking to stay aligned and in community through their

Their co-created community started with the use of indigenous practices from the amazon as
Michaels main teachers are from the Shipibo Tribes of the Amazon of Peru. Michael has gone
on several journeys into the amazon to study deeper with the healing properties and
awakening nature of the enlightened plant spirits from Colombia to Peru. A majority of his
studies have been with a very specific Shipibo tribe in Peru of the Mahua-Lopez lineage that
have been able to make connection with and now protecting some of the most enlightened and
spiritual master plants. Having done 2 major plant dietas with this tribe his connection to the
plant spirits are immensely unique and have allowed his ability to work with in the plant
medicine realm more intuitively connected.

He began to vigorously study and train in the wellness industry to attune his natural skills of
servitude to develop them into beneficial tools for people whom he supports. Michaels biggest
gift and uniqueness working in the healing and wellness space of retreats is with his overly
giving nature to show up for people 24 hours a day when in retreat setting. Paired with the
addition of his in-depth work using the sacred tools and medicines to bring grounding, cleansing
and cleaning effects to people in their processes (i.e., uses of sacred tobacco, hapè, sananga,
agua de florida, and more) as well as the developmental talks he hosts while at retreats.

Michael strongly believes we all have the ability to be our own healer again. His legacy is to
develop a strong foundation in each person he comes in contact with to assist them in seeking
out or finding their true north to live their own passion each day in a healthy, engaging,
community care-based way.
