MOVING INTO ALIGNMENT – A MIND-BODY-SPIRIT RETREAT

We all live in a world of constant stimulation and busyness, and it can be hard to quiet the turbulence of your thoughts in order to see the clear picture of your life.  We all have a purpose in life and a unique talent that’s just waiting to be shared with the world.  When you come into alignment with your soul’s purpose you will experience true bliss or as the Costa Ricans say Pura Vida! 

This retreat for women is designed to help quiet the turbulence in your life, step away from the distractions that keep you from finding your own Pura Vida within.

Immerse yourself with Felicia Grant Intuitive Soul Coach in Costa Rica. Re connect with yourself, rest and discover the essence of Pura Vida. Add a small group of like minded women for this innovative women’s retreat that will take you back to self.  Surround yourself with the magical and spectacular scenery of Costa Rica.  Pura Vida Retreat and Spa is only a short 30 minutes from SJO airport. From the moment the plane touches down ALL of your needs will be taken care of. This retreat offers the opportunity to step away from your busy life, get back in touch with yourself and find that still, small voice that whispers the truth within.

When women come together in community they create an energy for joy, empowerment and growth.

Pura Vida has a World Class Spa offering decadent treatments such as Ayurvedic and Pranic Healing, Costa Rican Hot Stone, Thai & Shiatsu massage, BodyTalk™, Acupuncture, Watsu Pool Massage and more….

As women, we all too often find ourselves giving to everyone around us and not truly honoring our deepest needs or taking time for ourselves to fully heal from the challenges that life can bring. Throughout our week together, we will create a safe and sacred space to honor your stories, your strengths, and the wounds that have made you – your unique and fully whole – divine self thru the use of meditation, yoga, awareness practices, nature and sisterhood to witness and support each other as our own uniqueness unfolds.

“From the first site of the picture of accommodations on the website, the tentalow called to us. We went with it and never looked backed! Upon arrival, we were so pleasantly surprised and impressed and we were giddy and so excited to open up the side panels and let the amazing Costa Rican Rainforest air in! Our bathroom accommodations were close and we felt like we were showering in the middle of rainforest as the fresh air removed the built up steam and we washed our daily glow away only to feel the warm sun and fresh air renew us morning after beautiful morning!” Stacy S. – Sarasota, Florida

“I attended the 2017 Dragonfly Retreat in beautiful Costa Rica with Felicia Grant and was thrilled!  Felicia is clearly very committed to each and every participant. She brought very meaningful gifts for each of us, beautifully prepared materials telling us about the plans for the week and the resort itself, and was ever present with us!  Her choice of location, participants and special guest Mark (sound therapy!) just made this an unbelievable experience.  This was my first retreat, and it was everything and MORE that Felicia advertised.  I have made new friends, experienced true relaxation (I have no yoga or meditation experience) and “zen”, and took part in many of the “off resort” activities which were fantastic.  Before, during and after the retreat, Felicia has shown each of us her dedication and love and for that reason, I will look no further when I’m ready to decompress once again!” – Cranky in Canada

Frequently asked questions:

  • I’VE NEVER BEEN ON A RETREAT BEFORE. I’M INTERESTED, BUT HOW DO I KNOW THAT IT’S FOR ME?

  • WHAT IF I’VE NEVER/RARELY TRAVELED ALONE?

Being in a new place enlivens the senses and sets the stage for growth. It makes you more aware of the beauty in yourself and the world around you. Just because you haven’t done something yet, does not mean you’re not capable of it!

Remember to always meet fear with truth. Don’t tell yourself a story that limits you, you are stronger than you know! How wonderful is it that this work on yourself actually begins right now?

  • I’M FEELING SCARED ABOUT INVESTING IN MYSELF. DO YOU HAVE ADVICE ABOUT THIS?
We so get it! Making this choice can sometimes be met with resistance, especially if you’re not used to investing in yourself. This is why we’ve come up with a number of different rooming options. As women we put others first. This is your opportunity to invest in yourself!! It’s like putting on your oxygen mask first!
  • WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M COMING ALONE BUT I’M SHARING A ROOM?

We will take great care in working to connect you with the right roommate! Think of this as a beautiful invitation to step outside of your comfort zone and connect with someone new. The best of friendships have started with a DragonflyExperience.

Also, make sure to share with your friends and family know that you’re attending the retreat! You might be surprised that there’s someone special who will want to join you.
