Life’s hardships can easily distract us from our many blessings. At the same time, however, we are also in jeopardy of losing ourselves and forgetting what really matters. This 4-day retreat is a precious opportunity for this essential yet often neglected practice of spiritual renewal. Retreat is indispensable, however, when confronted with life-transitions involving ultimate concerns and critical choices.

Our retreat begins with a BodyMindSoul reset through practices that dissolve and release accumulated physical, mental and emotional stresses so that your true self can emerge. What follows is the remembrance of who you really are, so that you are able to consciously tame wayward motivations and their resulting negative behaviors that are built around the illusion of who you are not, but that have nevertheless weighed you down for so long. Once you relax comfortably into your true nature, you are spiritually revived.

We meet at a location away from your life in the world for an existential decompression. We step out of time and off the grid, turning off cell phones and computers for an additional digital detox. The beautiful, tranquil setting with fresh air, pure water, sunshine and clean food supports relaxation, rejuvenation, introspection and healing. The retreat themes are realized through the daily program of BodyMindSoul practices (meditation, yoga, and qigong) and inspirational lectures with discussion. You will have ample time to yourself as well as opportunities to connect with the other hearts who were inspired to join the retreat circle. The entire experience is powerfully facilitated by the paradisal setting of Costa Rica and the sacred space held by the Pura Vida family.

If you bring a receptive heart and mind, expect to receive insights and breakthroughs relative to your particular life-journey, such as: realizing who you really are; establishing a spiritual center as a lifeline to navigate the myriad challenges of life; finding clarity or resolution in your relationships; identifying a resonant educational/career path; and addressing health challenges. Everything is relevant, and anything is possible. If you are inspired, please join us!
