Vanessa And Adam Talk About
Their Experience At Rythmia

"Rythmia and Bee the Wellness made this a life-changing experience."

"I didn’t know what to expect from my first plant medicine experience and, now that I have been to Rythmia, I can’t imagine doing it any other way. I felt totally supported and cared for during my entire experience not only by the staff but through healthy meals, massages, integration classes and activities, and, of course, by the Bee the Wellness community. Any apprehensions I had were put at ease by knowing that Adam and Vanessa had vetted the facility, would be participating in the ceremonies, and that I would be amongst BTW friends new and old was so comforting. Rythmia and Bee the Wellness made this a life-changing experience."

-Heather B

"Being Surrounded With Bee Love, Support And Community Took My Experience To The Next Level!"

"If you’re considering working with ayahuasca, Rythmia Life Advancement Center is the place to do it and joining Bee The Wellness is the group to go with! In November of 2018, I went to Rythmia with the Lamberts, and 7 Bees. It’s the best thing I’ve done for myself and the people in my life! The Rythmia Way is a complete process that’s well thought out, fully supportive and creates a sacred space for everyone’s transformation. I’m so very happy to have shared such an amazing time with the Bee The Wellness group! Being surrounded with Bee love, support and community took my experience to the next level! I highly recommend giving yourself the blessed gift of this soul work at Rythmia with Bee The Wellness!"

-Meg M

"The Perfect Trifecta: Rythmia, BTW and Costa Rica"

"Rhythmia is a magical and transformational place. Going with BTW exponentialy enriched my experience and journey. Plant mediciane had been calling for for over 4 years and it just never lined up. Having the invitation to go with the hive took my worry out of the equation and allowed me to have a nurturing and healing expeprience. The perfect trifecta (Rythmia, BTW and Costa Rica) allowed me to get the most out of Rythmia. If you have ever done work any coaching with Vanessa or Adam you know they create a platform where you are heard and cared for. Which can definitely help when you integrate everything you discovered/remembered about yourself into your life back home. If you are at all interested in plant medicine do it right, go to Rythmia with BTW. "

-Erin G.

"Feeling safe was one of the most important considerations."

"This story begins in the jungle, in Costa Rica, tripping on plants for days!!! This is how all of your cocktail party discussions begin after you return from your stay at Rythmia. Rythmia is so many things! It is a mind, body, and soul rejuvenation. It is a place to get in touch with yourself and find out what made you the person you are or aren’t. It’s a place to confront fears, addictions, and a number of things that may be keeping you from being a better person. Rythmia is hard hard work, but so so worth it! But…….It is so much more amazing with a group of supportive people like the Bee community. The sharing and support from all of the Bees made the already incredible Rythmia experience an over the top experience. Feeling safe was one of the most important considerations for this trip and I felt like I was safe and amongst family from the first day. This has been the single most impactful thing I have done for self-improvement in my life. I found what I was looking at Rythmia, and so much more. I will be going back, but only with the Bees."

-Allen F

"It felt like being with family – safe and without judgment."

"Doing plant medicine at Rythmia was amazing. Rythmia's lightworkers and warriors are great at guiding you in the right direction with your plant medicine experience. Breathwork, yoga, meditation, plant medicine along with exceptional Bees made my Mother Ayahuasca journey memorable if not epic.

Even though everyone’s experience with plant medicine was unique to their needs and intentions, I believe we all experienced it together as a collective. I felt everyone’s love and support during my journey with Mother Ayahuasca, and that made the experience ever so powerful.

Recurring themes at Rythmia are SURRENDER, TRUST, and my favorite - THE ANSWER IS YOU. You can heal yourself but, you must DO THE WORK. Through the BTW Authentic Self Program, I received insight on what my purpose was in life. Diving into Mother Ayahuasca at Rythmia cleared up any grey areas, MAGNIFIED my purpose and brought me closer to my truest self.

Going with the BTW tribe was just a blast. It felt like being with family – safe and without judgment. Normally my hang-ups would get the best of me if I was doing this by myself but tripping on Mother Ayahuasca with the Bees made the experience an adventure.

If you are thinking about experiencing plant medicine – DO IT WITH THE BEE THE WELLNESS TRIBE at RYTHMIA!

Shout out to Adam and Vanessa for making this possible for me."

-Lilian M

"One of The Best Things I've Done For Myself."

"My week at Rythmia Life Advancement Center was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. The atmosphere of Rythmia is one of connection (with yourself and with others) and healing. Regardless of your personal state when you arrive, you will leave a week later vibrating at a much higher frequency. If you are at all interested in or are considering plant medicine, I cannot think of a better place to experience it. The healing breath work is powerful as well. There's yoga, meditations, group classes. Every detail is taken care of, from beautiful rooms, great food, spa, pools, peaceful grounds, and more. The staff is amazing. You get to focus on you and not feel a bit of guilt about it! I highly recommend giving this gift to yourself.

If you're in Authentic Self, you should go to Rythmia. Period. Rythmia is simply the perfect companion to the AS program. We are in AS to become the best possible version of ourselves, right? Rythmia was a totally safe and loving space for me to experience the plant medicine and breath work, and it helped me blast through some sticky things and get clear on a lot of my personal stuff. I still have to do the hard work "in real life" but now I can do so with much more clarity and confidence in my path. "

Adam recently left his 22-year career as Battalion Chief for the third largest fire department in the United States to join the ranks of full-time entrepreneur so he can contribute at an even larger capacity to the Bee The Wellness tribe.

One of the most sought-after fitness and health coaches in the ancestral health realm, Adam has developed highly effective wellness, fitness, and physical training programs for both Bee The Wellness members and CAL FIRE firefighters. Adam believes that achieving optimal health and performance must include a foundation of fundamental nutrition and fitness principles but is by no means a one-size-fits-all approach. To that end, he is committed to helping people find a nutrition and fitness strategy that meets their individual needs.

Adam made it the focus of his career as fire chief to identify and address the specific physical, cognitive, and emotional demands placed on fire personnel and shift workers. His breadth of experience in the fire service has provided him with a unique vantage point from which to build a progressive approach for non-firefighting people interested in elevating their wellness potential.
Author of the popular firefighter fitness blog, Adam wrote a groundbreaking review on nutrition and heat-related illness that was published in the State of California annual Focus on Safety. Heralded as a thought leader in the field, Adam was recruited as a contributing editor to The First Twenty, a web-based wellness program designed for the fire service.
Adam has also been recognized as one of the leading strength and conditioning coaches in the fire service. Certified under the National Strength and Conditioning Association, he spent 6 years training and coaching under ancestral health expert Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution and owner of Norcal Strength and Conditioning. As a Firefighter Olympics and Crossfit Games competitor, Adam is no stranger to performance athletics.
His mission with Bee The Wellness is to take the experiential knowledge he has gained as a wellness coach and individualize and share it with everyday people ready to experience impressive transformation in their bodies, minds, and spirits.

A champion of movement and mindfulness, Vanessa honed her physical prowess under the tutelage of such celebrated ancestral health pioneers as Robb Wolfe and Mark Sisson and sharpened her mental mastery as a Certified Spiritual Counselor and graduate of the Landmark Curriculum for Living.
Vanessa fuses her distinguished knowledge of health, diet, and fitness, with her expertise in mindfulness for a 360-degree experience in holistic life coaching. She has coached over 2,500 remote clients under Bee The Wellness and the Primal Blueprint, and hundreds of seminar and retreat guests at world-famous PrimalCon events, Paleo f(x), and Bee The Wellness adventures.
A health and fitness enthusiast since childhood, Vanessa came into coaching quite accidentally. As a promising young gymnast, she was asked to instruct the introductory classes at her gym. Her natural love of the movement was deepened by sharing it with others. There began her innate understanding and appreciation of the unique importance of the teacher-student relationship.
No stranger to competitive sport, Vanessa played soccer, basketball, swam competitively, and co-captained her cheerleading squad. Her thirst for adventure took her to Maui in her early twenties, where she became one of the first female surf instructors—Certified in Surf Rescue—in the Hawaiian Islands and a true force in the water.
She spent 5 years fighting fires with her Bee The Wellness co-founder, Adam Lambert. Their natural love of fitness, health, and competitive sports, made them the perfect match. She and Adam coached the fundamentals of weight lifting and gymnastics at ancestral health events around the world and were an integral part of the CrossFit NorCal team that took third place in the affiliate games in 2009.
Vanessa feels truly blessed for having worked with the best and brightest in the ancestral health world, a journey that led to the co-creation of the Bee The Wellness program with her husband Adam. These days, her focus is on helping as many people as possible become the very best version of themselves by taking self-awareness and making it actionable in life.
Using an inside-out approach to transformation, Vanessa has developed acclaimed Bee The Wellness mindfulness programs, such as the Authentic Self Program/Life Mastery Program and the 21-Day Meditation Challenge, which includes all original written and recorded meditations backed by binaural beats, a synthesis of Vanessa’s musical background and mindfulness training.
