The Great Resignation

During the past two years, Covid has broken down a lot of the systems that don’t work, forced us to look at how we define ourselves in relation to the life we live, and offered us the opportunity to think bigger, take bolder action and create a new life (personally and professionally) for ourselves. Whether it was moving to a new place, leaving a job that drained you, picking up a long-forgotten hobby, going off-grid; this newfound sense of freedom, this newfound sense that we are the creators of our own lives left us excited. And while that’s bringing up a lot of energy and gets our juices flowing, it’s also extremely unsettling. When the possibilities are endless, where do you start? How do you find what’s truly aligned with you, or even if you know that, how do you create a blueprint that works for you?

This retreat offers the following:

 

  • A deeper dive into finding out what’s truly yours and not socially expected of you!

  • Getting in touch with your true passions, desires and strengths and using that as a source of inspiration for creating a life/business you love

  • A blueprint for a daily, simple practice that can ground you, nourish your body, mind, heart and soul; practices that are fundamental for connecting you to yourself, connecting your mind to your heart and connecting your actions to your values so you can bring more of yourself into this world

  • Activities that will allow you to reflect and let go of old patterns, ideas, habits, attachments that no longer serve you

  • Activities that will challenge what you know about yourself and what you can create in the world

  • Accountability from a group of women that share the same journey

  • A group of women that can complement and enhance your skills, knowledge, aptitudes etc.

Our retreat is a personalized multi-month process integrating three unique stages:

An at-home preparation

An 8-day immersive experience in Costa Rica

An at-home reintegration.

We will be here to guide and support you throughout the whole process.

Stage 1: Preparation

Preparation begins the moment you commit to this experience. Let us guide you through your inner journey, by setting the stage at home.

Stage 2: The Retreat

Join us on an 8-day intimate, in-person gathering in La Senda, Costa Rica. We’ve designed this immersive retreat to bring your strengths, attachments, deepest desires and sharp edges to the forefront. We help you step back, get perspective, and reframe. We guide you towards applying this positive force to your daily life. You'll feel empowered, freed and deeply connected.

Retreat location

QUIET AND SERENE

La Senda is a beautiful blessing, spanning 74-acres and covered in tropical dry forests and meadows. Only a few kilometers away from Playa Tamarindo, it’s easily accessible, yet a prime location for quiet reflection.

La Senda creates a space for serenity and seclusion. Surrounded by nature, you’ll be joined by howler monkeys, tropical birds, and countless other magical creatures.

THE LABYRINTH

Energy specialists suggested that La Senda may have once been a sacred, indigenous sanctuary. During our consultations, we discovered various energy centers around the property. Following this realization, La Senda built the labyrinth to amplify this power, charging two strong oppositional energy centers deep within the forest.

The labyrinth, built out of more than 5,000 cacti, is one of the largest in the world. It spans more than 2.5 acres (1 hectare), with almost two miles (3 km) of pathways. Without a doubt, it is the only labyrinth in the world that claims two centers: a feminine and a masculine one. Together, they are united in the Vesica Pisces, the point where creation takes place.

FARM TO TABLE

La Senda is a place of abundance, growing its own organic food. The land supports lavish fruit trees, vegetables, bees, and herbs. La Senda supplies Cala Luna with this abundance, to bring people together for magical nights wandering the labyrinth followed by dinner together.

La Senda is more than a well-run farm, it is a place of gathering, connection, and great conversations.

IN-HOUSE ACTIVITIES

La Senda gathers creators, visionaries, and healers from all over the world. Beyond farm-to-table dinners, this immersive space spawns memorable activities such as kirtan nights, labyrinth walks, herbal tours, Tezmescal and cacao ceremonies, breathwork, ice bath sessions, and even a trance music festival, once a year.
