Join leaders Catherine O'Kane and Lori Myles-Carullo for a wonderfully relaxing, nourishing, and resetting week-long retreat for women in the tropical heart of Costa Rica.
Those labelled women at birth are socialized to have what goes out exceed what comes in. We learn how to respond to the needs of others but may be confused about how to extend that same caring toward self. As a result, moving through life with a half-empty tank becomes the norm.
The REST & RESET Retreat is an opportunity to relax, re-fuel, and re-orient to a more balanced way of being. You’ll spend time soaking in the beauty of the environment, connecting to your body through yoga and mindfulness practices, connecting with like-minded women, and expanding your connection to self through group process.
You’ll leave with a full tank, greater awareness, and a greater sense of your worth. You will know what it feels like to receive and be empowered to implement practices to keep the process going.
This retreat includes a wonderful amount of time at the magical Mystica Lodge and also trips to the healing hot springs at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano and to the luscious Playa Hermosa on the Pacific Coast for a beach day.
We hope you will join us and be greatly blessed in body, heart, mind, and soul.
PLEASE NOTE: All deposits for the Rest & Reset Retreat are non-refundable and non-transferable. We highly recommend all participants to purchase personal travel insurance in case of any need to cancel.
