Jacqueline Bürkler - Owner

Jacqueline was born in Switzerland where she grew up and achieved a pH. D. in natural sciences from the prestigious Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich. She always liked to travel and in early years traveled through Europe, Asia and the continent of America. She lived 13 years in Colombia before changing her home to Costa Rica in 1999. The serenity of the rainforest and the pristine beaches of the Caribbean Sea inspired the idea to create an intentional place for transformation: The Goddess Garden Retreat Center.

John Jairo Ocampo - Professional Therapist of the Ayurveda

Born in 1965 and growing up in Colombia, John Jairo made a point of helping others and sharing his healing gift with the people around him.  He moved to Switzerland at the age of 19 where he joined the First-Aid Association, eventually becoming president of the local branch.  He also enrolled in the volunteer fire fighters in his village at the age of 23.  He was in charge of first aid training for 10 years.  During a short stay in the Indian sub-continent in 2002, he contacted the Ayurveda and decided to dedicate the rest of his life to this philosophy.  Shortly after his return to Europe, he started his training and was soon recognized as an intuitive therapist by both of his teachers and his peers.  In 2005, he opened a successful Ayurvedic practice within a yoga center of the Geneva region.  John Jairo Ocampo moved to the Caribbean region of Costa Rica in 2007.  Locals and visitors may now enjoy the great benefits of his Ayurvedic treatments.
