Warm your bones, relax your mind and nourish your spirit with us this winter.

Hit pause on the pressures of daily life to immerse yourself in the rich & diverse natural wonders of Costa Rica. This retreat will be an opportunity to connect with a supportive community of women while living artfully in nature and exploring inner and outer landscapes with fresh eyes and renewed energy.

We will use the eastern philosophy of the five elements in our daily practices to cultivate a deeper connection in Presence, Pleasure & Purpose. Less doing & more being- transplant yourself into a lush and therapeutic environment where you will have ample time and space to rest, relax, play, explore and just sit with the bigger questions that stir within you.

Feel safe to get curious around your inner desires, to reassess and release what no longer serves and truly listen to what whispers in your soul.
