If you are a spiritually-minded woman who is looking to improve your overall well being, rewire your mindset and habits leading to a healthier and happier life, then join us for an 8-day mind, body and soul transformation in beautiful Nosara, Costa Rica!

Imagine…

As you reflect under the majestic trees surrounding your eco-luxury room nestled in the Costa Rican jungle, a sense of calm takes over as the warm breeze brushes through your hair.  The sound of the howler monkeys swinging from branch to branch in the canopy above you, becomes a familiar and comforting melody. For the first time in a long time, your mind, heart and soul are at peace.  As the day draws to an end, you take a slow deep breath, fill your lungs with fresh air and as you exhale and release, you feel alive again.
In this moment, time stands still.  You have grown accustomed to a slower pace here in Costa Rica; your journey in this magical place provides you with much-needed clarity.  As you begin to reconnect with yourself, your perspective changes and you realize what is actually important.

Watching the sun slowly set over the horizon, you are reminded of the promise of a new dawn and of the wonderful opportunities that lay ahead.  The dark evening sky gently pushes the sun down into tranquility and the sky erupts with vivid hues of pink, orange and purple; you are overcome with gratitude.

You take a moment to acknowledge that something fundamental inside you has shifted, you are not quite the person you were when you arrived here.

Welcome to the magic of Costa Rica, where your transformational journey awaits.

Retreat Leaders
Isabella Meduri

Retreat Leader and Facilitator

I have always been passionate about traveling and leading a healthy lifestyle. Over the past 17 years, I have traveled to more than 40 countries backpacking and camping across Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. I volunteered at wildlife sanctuaries, conservation centers, orphanages and taught in elementary schools in Central America, Asia and Africa. ​

Picture
​I transitioned from an adventure packed lifestyle, to settling down, getting a “good” job and essentially conforming to the social norms. I became a mother, built a beautiful family home and spent my days running around trying to cross off everything on my “to-do” list. I checked off all the boxes that we are told will bring us happiness and success. But I felt like something fundamental was missing from my life. I felt guilty thinking this way because I had done everything I was supposed to and I had so much to be grateful for.

I started meditating as a mechanism to help with my anxiety, something I have dealt with my entire life. Setting time aside for myself to calm my busy mind helped me realize that I had to make changes to my lifestyle if I wanted to be happy. I believe this was the pivotal moment realizing I had been doing it all backwards.

I had to rewire my thought patterns and build new healthy habits in order to feel happy again. I stopped working late evenings and weekends, I chose to be completely present while spending time with my family and re-examined the things that brought me the most joy.

During the process of restructuring my life, my perspective shifted, no longer caring about the social labels and expectations that surrounded me. I went from existing to flourishing and I felt alive again. Today, I have more energy, patience and am excited about my future. I want to share what I have learned and help other women in establishing their own self-care rituals and rediscovering who they really are.

I want to pass on life-changing tools and self-care strategies to bring peace and harmony into your life. I hope you join me for an amazing week in Nosara, Costa Rica.
