The Liberate Woman Retreat
January 15th – 22nd, 2020
Farm of Life, Costa Rica
Welcome Beautiful Goddess!
You are invited to join me, and a group of wise and divine women, in the Costa Rican jungle for my third retreat at the magical Farm of Life (one of my favorite places in the world!).
ReWild & ReConnect Retreats are created with so much love and intention as a heartfelt invitation for you to come home to nature – Mother Nature and the True Nature of who you are.
The Liberated Woman retreat is specifically created to honour you as a woman during this time of potent transformation on the planet! In safe and sacred space, you will be supported, celebrated and nurtured as you fully explore, remember and embrace the Liberated Woman and Goddess within!
I invite you to acknowledge and reclaim your
… your Self!
I invite you to experience how deeply the world needs you to be authentically YOU!
Honour yourSelf with this gift of Self Discovery, Self Care and Self Love.
Know, in the depth of your Being, that when you put YOU first, you inspire all women around you (and actually give them permission) to do the same.
Together, we can remember our True Essence.
This retreat is being curated with love for 16 women.
Who is the Liberated Woman?
She is FREE of ALL conditionings and constructs.
She lives from intuition and instinct.
She is FREE of masks and societal pressures.
She lives as her authentic self with integrity.
She is FREE of guilt and shame.
She honours her body as a temple and her sexuality as sacred.
She is FREE of fear.
She trusts life fully. She speaks with courage. She flows with ALL THAT IS.
She is FREE of thinking she should look and act a certain way.
She is wild, natural and in touch with her natural rhythm and cycles.
She is FREE of judgement.
She is compassionate. She loves unconditionally. She lifts other women up.
She is FREE from the limitations of her mind.
She witnesses all of creation as a reflection of herself.
She knows who she is. She knows she was never bound.
She is Life itself.
She is Love.
Can you feel her? Is she alive within you? Do you want to connect with her more deeply and reawaken her into Being?
Our Sanctuary: Farm of Life
Farm of Life, nestled in the middle of the jungle at the top of a mountain, makes it the ideal location for our ReWild & ReConnect Retreat (it is literally at the end of the gravel road!). This gem is located in the Southwest coastal region of Costa Rica, near the Pacific Ocean, Dominical beach and the mountain town of San Isidro. During your stay at Finca de Vida, bask in the high vibrational elements of the farm, feel the nourishing tropical breeze, listen to the symphony of innumerable birds & insects, watch the mesmerising dance of the butterflies, dragonflies & hummingbirds.
This magical property bursts with radiant, fragrant flowers and lush gardens, towering ceiba trees, and flowing crystalline waters. Connect with Mother Nature and be nurtured by barefoot walking, sun gazing, breathing in fresh mountain air, hiking through the jungle trail, eating off the land and drinking pure spring water. Witness unforgettable sunsets and the mystical, shapeshifting clouds of the approaching rainy season. Every moment at the Farm, everywhere that you look, all that you hear, touch, taste, & smell is an opportunity to experience pure wonderment and awe of this magical slice of paradise.
