A Costa Rica Retreat for Connection, Creation and Choice

October 23rd to 30th, 2022
Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
If you are a cancer survivor who is ready to release the fear and old trauma, make deep connections and lifelong friendships while coming back to yourself, connected to your body and ready to bring forth your next chapter - then join us in exotic Costa Rica for this powerful and transformative adventure!

Standing on the edge of the jungle, surrounded by other warriors on the journey, you rise. 

 

Committed to a new relationship with your body and celebrating the life you have yet to live, you slowly make your way into the waves.  You feel the cool water wash over your skin as tears well up in your eyes with gratitude for your beautiful body, this life and all of the sensations that you are able to experience.

You have released all that was in the past and are now committed to truly living in communion with your body, able to set boundaries, trust your intuition and live the life that the Universe has been calling you to live.

Encircled in a loving group embrace, you know that you are no longer alone.  You have found your warrior tribe and can go forth into the world knowing that others are supporting you in all that the future holds.

As you step out of the healing, blue waters of the ocean, you have been reborn and all the trauma, fear and struggle has been washed away.  You glow with the radiant light of the Universe and you step into your new life.

Let me tell you more..

During cancer treatment, your focus was turned to survival.  You needed to feel hopeful and positive not only for yourself and others. 

 

The pain and fear is postponed, pushed down or swept aside.  Yet now, even months or years after recovery, it still surfaces. 

 

It still resides in your body. 

 

It shows up through a fleeting comment, a scent on the air or another person’s story but you can still touch that place. 

 

Imagine spending a week with a group of loving souls who want to touch into that place with you and want to heal together. 

 

You will be able to release, and let go.

  • You know how it feels to look in the mirror at your body forever changed by life-saving treatments.

  • You know the fear and hope that come with your regular scans

  • You sometimes long to return again to that space of being held and loved by others during treatment

  • You have the deep desire to connect with others who have shared your experience

  • You crave the time and freedom to heal

  • You want to choose how live out your life fully

  • You are ready to release the pain and trauma

  • You have a burning desire to create the next chapter of your life

The Venue 
Resort and Wildlife Refuge
Who wouldn't want a room with a private balcony and views of the ocean and jungle?


We'll be staying at Si Como No, Resort and Wildlife Refuge just outside of the beach town of Quepos.  The resort is steps away from one of the most magnificent gems in all of Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio National Park.  From your window, you will be able to see the waves washing up on the beaches of the National Park.  Everywhere you look, your eye can settle on the lush, green tropical life surrounding Si Como No.

Not only is the resort rated 5 out of 5 for sustainability by Green Hotels of Costa Rica, it also features its own Wildlife Exhibits next to the property.  

Imagine waking up to the gentle sunbeams spreading across the floor while fresh, local coffee wafts in from outside.  Howler monkeys make themselves known in the trees nearby and you rise to look out on the gentle waves crashing along the shore.

Every room offers your own private balcony, ocean and jungle views, private bathroom and shower, air conditioning and ceiling fan.

Delicious cuisine for Breakfast...

Breakfasts and dinners are included so you'll have plenty of opportunities to try every delicious dish on the menu.  

If you haven't yet been, the food in Costa Rica is incredible.  You have never had such fresh fruits, vegetables and fish in your life!  
Imagine sitting down to breakfast of freshly squeezed guanabana juice.  (Guanabana is a bumpy, football sized fruit with a marshmallow interior and tangy flavor.)  Fresh mangoes and bananas  accompany the Costa Rican favorite: Gallo Pinto, the national rice and beans specialty. Eggs made to order and omelettes are also available.  And of course, don't forget freshly picked and roasted Costa Rican coffee.  

Costa Rica has one of the most ideal climates in the world for growing coffee and the best beans are roasted and poured just for you.

...and Dinner

Ceviche is one of the local favorites when you are at the beach in Costa Rica.  Fresh caught fish is marinated with lime juice and plenty of cilantro.  The mouth watering tanginess of the lime and fish is complimented by a side of corn chips to act as both serving spoon and salty companion.

While the dinner menu is full of delicious fish options, there are also plenty of delectable dishes for both vegetarians and non fish eaters alike.

Pizza, found all across the globe, is a mainstay of Costa Rican cuisine and is also a tasty dinner option.

Our Itinerary


Each day during our retreat, we'll come together to share in transformational activities, movement, sea ritual and targeted journaling.  While there is plenty on our itinerary, including a snorkeling adventure at the coral reef, there will also be plenty of time to relax, rest, rejuvenate and explore.  

Experience the beauty of the wildlife preserve, swim in the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, explore the nearby town of Quepos and enjoy the local restaurants and nightlife.  

While there will be daily curated experiences, this retreat is for you.  It is a lovely, unique time when you get to really tune into your desires, intuition and creativity.  Imagine having the space to wonder what do I want to do next?  What is it that I need right now?  Do I want a nap, a swim, a massage, a conversation with a new friend?  How can I truly give myself what I need and want in this moment right now?
