Vanessa Castro

We all have an important purpose, in accordance with the Divine Plan and Love. It is my honour to guide you in initiation and transformational experiences to heal, shine and have peaceful magical lives through my offers.

My Story

Originating from the tropical land of Costa Rica, Vanessa has had a taste for the “Pura Vida” (pure life) since she was a little girl.She grew up in the small town of Sarchi, peering out of her humble home at passing tourists and feeling rich when offered a $1 tip.

Since as early as she can remember, Vanessa saw auras around people and objects and thought everyone could see these energy fields as well. At the age of 11 a family friend recognized her gift and gave Vanessa the book La Voz Del “Yo Soy” (Voice of the “I am”). Vanessa treasured this book as sacred, reading it countless times to learn the art of manifestation and how apply the spiritual laws outlined in the book.

Her academic success helped her rise beyond her humble beginnings and receive a scholarship to the University of Costa Rica—one of the top universities in the world that teaches Eco-Tourism using experience-focused immersions.

After graduating from University she followed her passion for creating a healthy planet by joining the Institute of Costa Rican Tourism and leading the sustainable tourism program in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Her job entailed traveling to beautiful beaches and awarding the healthy ones with the “Blue Flag” to symbolize the success in keeping the waters and ecosystem pure.

She also rated hotels based on Costa Rica’s famous “5 Leaf” sustainability rating program and became highly skilled at understanding what it takes to run a sustainable business and how to effectively evaluate social and environmental impact.

In 2010 Vanessa joined a start-up with a mission to create an alternative to the Fortune 500 list. They needed help creating an evaluation process to measure an organization’s purpose-driven approach to business and their social and environmental impact. Vanessa’s experience in sustainability ratings was a perfect fit. Now known as the GameChangers 500 DNA Test, the evaluation has been used to create a list of the world’s top purpose-driven companies, such as Google, Zappos, TOMS, and Patagonia.

In 2013, her passion for responsible tourism and women’s retreats led her to the International Tour Managers Institute (ITMI) in San Francisco where she graduated among a highly acclaimed list of tour directors working for organizations like National Geographic, Smithsonian Institute, Travcoa, and Disney.

When Vanessa’s not helping evaluate purpose-driven companies, she uses her ITMI training to organize women’s retreats to Ancient Wisdom sites like the pyramids of Teotihuacan and Machu Pichu and sacred sites / energy vortex like Costa Rica and Sedona (pic).

She has studied with wisdom keepers from the Toltec, Navaho, Hopi, Celtic, Mayan, Hindu-Dharma Balinese, Shinto traditions and more. She is also an Advanced Certified Moon Mother, Reiki Healer and is doing her practice to become and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) certified practitioner.

Her mission is to help women embody their authentic feminine nature and to better harmonize feminine energy into the work world.

Optimized Woman Workshop Facilitator

Vanessa is the first international Optimized Woman Workshop Facilitator authorized by Miranda Gray.

Miranda Gray’s book ‘The Optimized Woman- Using Your Menstrual Cycle to Achieve Success and Fulfillment’ is an international best-seller, and thousands of women worldwide have read the book and attended her ‘Optimized Woman’ workshops to understand who they are as cyclic women and why this is such a powerful gift to empower themselves in their lives, their work and in their success. First published in 2009, The Optimized Woman was the first book to bring the menstrual cycle into the workplace as a work enhancement tool and Miranda brings 30 years’ personal experience as a cyclic woman and as a businesswoman to her Optimized Woman workshop.

Vanessa has a strong background in innovative business helping to create the evaluation system to rate world’s top purpose-driven organization, known as GameChangers 500. During this time, she became passionate about raising a new paradigm for working women, through honouring the unique gifts of the feminine in the business world. She is also a menstrual cycle mentor trained by Miranda, is a lunar coach for women in business (using the menstrual cycle to its best effect), an international women’s wellness workshop and retreat facilitator – and a firewalk instructor!

In February 2014 Vanessa took Miranda Gray’s Moon Mother® Level 1 training, and in 2017 she co-led with Miranda Gray a 7-day retreat in Costa Rica based on Optimized Woman concepts. Vanessa has been working with Miranda’s materials since 2014 and has given lectures based on The Optimized Woman in Costa Rica, Guatemala, USA, Spain and Estonia. She is also an international Moon Mother® Level 1 Teacher.


Vanessa offers Optimized Woman workshops around the world in English and Spanish, or in other languages with translation.

About Me

Vanessa is an international Moon Mother® Teacher of Miranda Gray, Optimized Woman Workshop Facilitator, Menstrual Mentor and Lunar Coach, and a firewalk instructor. She also facilitates spiritual workshops and wellness retreats in beautiful locations.

Her passion is to support you in feeling the sparkles of life and becoming the best version of yourself, to guide you on your path of reconnecting with your Divine plan and let go of the limiting beliefs that are stopping you from feeling Love and loved. She believes we all have an important purpose and if you don’t bring your mastery out, the world won’t have it. “When we heal, we do it for ourselves and also the world becomes a better place and a new paradigm to serve all life can be birthed”


Since as early as she can remember, she saw auras around people and objects and thought everyone could see these energy fields as well, this ignited in her a passion to learn from ancient wisdom teachings, energy healing techniques and the Divine Feminine.


She began studying the teachings of the feminine from Mother Nature in Costa Rica in her late teenage years and had the opportunity to travel around the world to learn from ancient oral traditions about their way of life and the Power of Feminine Wisdom.


In 2011 Vanessa began to study the Toltec teachings of the lineage of Miguel Ruiz, and since then she regularly visits the Teotihuacan Pyramids where she practices and deepens her studies. She has also studied with wisdom keepers from the Navaho, Hopi, Celtic, Mayan, Hindu-Dharma Balinese, Shinto traditions and more. She is also a Reiki Healer and is doing her practice to become an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) certified practitioner.


During her travels Vanessa encountered the Womb Blessing® and the teachings of Miranda Gray. For her the Womb Blessing® was a manifestation of the Divine Feminine teachings she learned from Mother Nature in Costa Rica and in Miranda’s books she found the language to communicate with others what she had learned through her over 10 years of studying.

The Womb Blessing® vision deeply resonated with her. It was in full alignment with her soul and something she was looking for during her travels. She felt the call to spread this energy in Costa Rica and also in the other countries she was traveling to. She became a Moon Mother® in 2014, and is the pioneer of spreading the Womb Blessing in Costa Rica and Miranda’s workshop organizer. She has hosted Womb Blessing circles in Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Canada, Guatemala, USA, Czech Republic, Estonia and India.


In 2016 she was invited as a young Spiritual Grandmother of the 10 + 1 Sacred Circle of Grandmothers and Grandfathers Sages, and in 2017 she was invited to be the first women to lead firewalk at the Shri Jasnath Asan, an ashram in Rajastan India with a tradition of fire dancers of hundreds of years.


Before becoming a Divine Feminine Guide, Vanessa helped to create the evaluation system to rate world’s top purpose-driven organization, known as GameChangers 500.
During this time she became passionate about raising a new paradigm for working women, through honoring the unique gifts of the feminine in the business world. As a lunar coach she now teaches women the uses of the menstrual cycle and menopause as a tool to fulfill their goals and optimize their abilities in their work life.

She is also the first facilitator of the Optimized Women workshop of Miranda Gray, based on the book with the same name.

Now more than 30 countries after, she enjoys traveling to teach, share and also spending time in her home country Costa Rica where she hosts workshops, transformational personal retreats and group experiences.

Optimized Woman (Miranda Gray)

Based on Miranda Gray’s book ‘The optimized Woman’ this workshop changes the way women think about their work whether they work for an employer or work for themselves, whether they work for a small company, a big organisation or a multinational corporate, whether they are a worker, a manager or even a member of the Board.

This workshop will help to:

♡ Release our stress of trying to live in a linear manner

♡ Do things better

♡ Do things quicker

♡ Do things outside of our normal skillset and expectations

♡ Grow and evolve in new directions

♡ Feel whole and complete – who we are meant to be

♡ Easily meet our needs and create wellbeing



An ‘Optimized Woman’ is a woman who lives her life in harmony with her cycle applying the ‘optimised’ energies and skillsets that appear in each phase to her life to create increased well-being and fulfilment, to realise her dreams and life-goals, and to enhance her work performance and work satisfaction.

In our menstrual cycle we have days where we have enhanced thinking skills and heightened abilities. These ‘optimised days’ not only empower us to do particular activities and tasks quicker, easier and better but they also give us access to talents that we never knew we had.

In the modern masculine world we women have a unique performance tool which can when applied can make us more versatile, creative and productive in the workplace. This tool is also our key to reducing stress, creating well-being and becoming more fulfilled in our lives. The name of this tool? The menstrual cycle.

Transformational Firewalking

♡ Firewalk for motivation in corporations and teams:

“It’s an ancient practice in many cultures. It teaches you to overcome your fears and do what you thought was impossible.

♡ Firewalk as believe transformation and let go of old patterns

Where you told that fire will burn you? That’s one of the first thingsI learned early in my life. When you, yourself walk on the hot coals this fundamental believe is challenged. What other things could you do? You go from impossible to Possible.

♡ The firewalk ceremony is an initiation a transformation of burning barriers and limiting believes stopping you form expressing the real you.

♡ Firewalk as shamanic practice

From a shamanic point of view, everything is about energy. When we don’t have enough energy, we cannot create conscious change in our life. When we are vibrant and full, anything is possible. Each of us has a fire within, and everything we do either feeds and nourishes our fire, or diminishes and dampens our fire.
This workshop will help you discover where you unconsciously leak energy and show you how to use ancient shamanic wisdom to uncover your vibrancy and healing power.

♡ “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? -Marianne Williamson”

Join me in this transformational experience that will open your world to new possibilities that you did not consider before.

Walking on fire is an experience that transforms you. Are you ready to leave fears behind?

Duration: 5 hours

The firewalk at the end of the workshop is voluntary.

♡ Blue Spirit, Nosara Beach, Costa Rica.
♡ April 15-22, 2017


Embrace your female energies and cyclic nature, and learn practical ways to create wellbeing, success and fulfilment in all areas of your life – at work, in the home and in the bedroom.

♡ Do you feel that something is missing deep within you?
♡ Does your heart and femininity cry out for expression in your life and career?
♡ Do you wish to discover how to use your innate feminine super powers – whatever your age?
♡ Do you want to learn the ancient women’s secret to happiness, career success and sexual, spiritual and creative fulfillment?

This amazing 7-day retreat in the beautiful feminine surroundings of natural Costa Rica empowers all women who wish to understand the natural benefits and powerful gifts that lie in their inherent cyclic nature. Discover how to apply this knowledge in practical ways to create a uniquely female approach to success, work, love, life and sex.
Join international teachers and authors Miranda Gray and Vanessa Castro on an experiential journey to discover yourself as a woman and delve deep into to your beautiful and amazing authentic female nature.

As women, we travel through each month reflecting the cycles of the Moon, the Earth, the tides and the cycle of life in a pattern that ebbs and flows. We walk a path of changing energies and levels of perception, and yet we are often unconscious of these changes, or we fight against them to meet the expectations of modern life. When we become aware of our cyclic nature then our life changes. We begin to walk a female path of happiness, success, centeredness, creativity, spirituality and love.

This retreat is a unique opportunity to relax and be cradled in a supportive female space where you can grow in sacredness, in friendship and in sisterhood, and take this sacredness back into your everyday life.
You will immerse yourself in the experience of the 4 female archetype principles that lie within you and learn to recognize them in yourself, in your life, in the women around you, in the beautiful nature of Costa Rica and even in the delicious food that is served!
Over the course of the week you will integrate this new perception of your cyclic nature so that you can take it home to share with your loved ones, partners, kids, and co-workers.

Before becoming a wisdom teacher, Vanessa helped to create the evaluation system to rate world’s top purpose-driven organization, known as GameChangers 500. During this time she became passionate about raising a new paradigm for working women, through honoring the unique gifts of the feminine in the business world.

Viaje Iniciático: Mujer Sagrada, Misión Sagrada

♡ con Ligia Ramirez y Vanessa Castro
♡ Blue Spirit, Costa Rica
♡ del 25 abril al 02 mayo, 2015

Mujer, Hay un poder que se encuentra latente en tu interior...

Desde tiempos ancestrales, el lugar de la mujer en la sociedad fue el de mantener el fuego sagrado encendido. En estos momentos poderosos, el llamado de la mujer es de nuevo encender el fuego sagrado desde su corazón para recrear el mundo amoroso que por milenios ha permanecido latente en nuestro ADN.

La energía del planeta tierra esta cambiando constantemente, son como olas de energía que elevan la vibración al traer armonía. Los seres humanos pueden elegir subirse a esta ola de evolución espiritual. La misión de cada mujer se convierte en su tabla de surf que le permite subirse en la ola y así fluir y aprovechar estas energías para volar.

Este Viaje Iniciático es para todas las mujeres que están escuchando el llamado de su corazón, de su alma femenina, de su Ser Superior para formar parte activa en la transmutación hacia la Nueva Tierra.

El mar, el agua salada de una de las playas más hermosas de Costa Rica, nos limpiará las heridas del pasado para que la magnificencia de nuestro Ser Auténtico salga a la vista.

Blue Spirit y su exuberancia tropical, deliciosa comida fresca y orgánica, tiempo libre para la renovación y descanso se convertirán en testigos de tu gloriosa experiencia en compañía de mujeres que en sincronía responden a este mismo llamado.

Este Viaje Iniciático, es el comienzo de tu nueva vida… Estas lista para vivir de acuerdo a tu mayor potencial?
