Transformational Retreats

“ To be nobody but yourself… in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself… means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.”

– E.E. Cummings

Transformation and Healing Retreats to Feed Your Soul

Chuy and Shannon lovingly lead retreats to exciting and exotic locations where you can remove the stressors and distractions of all the demands life puts on us and get back in touch with the true essence of your being… your inner truth. By helping you get present with yourself we can guide you to  increase your awareness and mindfulness so that you can live the life you want. We are trained to guide people through transformation in many areas that can lead to a happy and fulfilling life. This includes healing meditation, communication techniques, understanding your sexual nature, and processes that release emotional triggers, PTSD, anxiety, and stress. You’re not broken, you don’t need fixing… you are a beautiful human and you are enough. Our goal is to shine a light on that beauty and remind you how to find what is in the essence of your soul.

Come and join us on a retreat and life will never be the same! 

mind, body, spirit: awaken the power within
8 day retreat
jaco, Costa Rica

July 13-20, 2024

Free yourselves of outside distractions and put your focus & energy on upgrading your inner world and get a more clear vision of what you want in life.

Short Summary:

We invite you to join us on this immersive journey to reconnect with yourself. The demands of modern, busy lives can pull at the fabric of your relationship with yourself and others in your life.

So many parts of our lives grab our energy and attention, such as family and careers, that we can find ourselves feeling like we’re barely keeping our head above water, creating stress. When we’re stressed, we drop into survival mode and don’t have the capacity to grow, heal and evolve.

Often times when we’re in this state of stress we see a decline in happiness, fulfilment, and good health. This stress can also take its toll on our relationships which causes even further stress by causing resentments and conflicts. We’re offering to guide you away from survival mode, so you can create a relaxed and purposeful life filled with love and abundance which builds the capacity to focus on healing and improving relationships, including with yourself!


Who is this retreat for and what will you get out of it:

• Are you feeling like you’re always busy with no time to relax? Sometimes we need to take a step back from the hustle of the demands in our life so that we can get present with ourselves and assess who we are and where we’re going. This retreat will give you more clarity about who you are and what you want from your life.

• Improve communication – good, clean communication is the cornerstone of all of our relationships, including with ourselves! Do you want to learn how to become aware of your patterns that aren’t bringing you the connection and results you desire? We can show you skills for better communication with your partner, co-workers, family members, friends, and most importantly… yourself.

• Discover your what you need, why you need it, and how to ask for it to invite more pleasure into your life and relationship.

• Heal resentments and triggers that are obstacles to connection with others and keep us stuck

• Raise your awareness & consciousness with mindfulness and specific meditation techniques designed to shift your subconscious patterns that aren’t serving you, and learn how to invite what you do want into your life and personality instead.

* Unplug and recharge with a some fun and adventure on tours of the local sights and culture.

* Join a community of like minded people to support and amplify your inner growth and evolution.

* On the event property there will be areas that are clothing optional for naturalists if you like to swim or sunbathe in the nude.

Let us take care of all the logistics and details… all you need to do is come with an open heart and mind. Chuy & Shannon will be your pleasure and transformation guides for this 8-day retreat. We are Communication and Intimacy Coaches who will lovingly lead you on a transformation journey in the beautiful jungles of Costa Rica
