Volcano Rainforest

Kathleen and Peter have created the Volcano Rainforest Retreat B&B in this serene native rainforest as a bed and breakfast accommodation for romantic getaways and as a sanctuary for those seeking intimacy with nature and each other.

The Volcano Rainforest Retreat was created in this primal and sacred space with deep respect for the natural beauty of the volcanic land and the native rain forest. The Volcano retreat lodging and grounds were also developed to explore the potential for personal sacred living space as a healing art.


Kathleen Golden, MA, has 45 years of training and experience in social work, education, psychological counseling,
teaching/mentoring in the practice of Nonviolent Communication and the facilitation of spiritual practices including meditation, silent retreats, Reiki Natural Healing and relationship as a spiritual path. Individual and/or couple sessions are offered to explore mental and emotional issues on personal and inter-personal levels. Deep healing of the subconscious body/mind through Reiki energy work is also offered. Phone sessions are possible for those in other locations. Kathleen is particularly gifted in fostering personal and interpersonal growth through a blend of psychological and spiritual counseling, empathic coaching and hands-on healing. She values mutual empowerment in partnership and community life and is committed to creating a relationship cherishing culture.

Nonviolent Compassionate Communication
Compassionate communication is based on Nonviolent Communication (NVC), the teachings of Marshall Rosenberg and teachings of Robert Gonzales on Living Compassion. Its purpose is to connect and communicate from the heart by transforming judgments and reactivity into compassionate understanding of ourselves and one another. The focus is to learn the consciousness and skills necessary to express honestly without criticism and blame and receive empathically without hearing criticism and blame.
