  • Bunk room: $1,150

  • Double occupancy: $1,275 per person

  • We chose this week as there were plentiful affordable airfares with efficient layovers, in the $500-$600 range. We recommend early booking (fly into San Jose airport code SJO)

  • It is a 90 minute drive from the airport to the beach retreat. We have one shuttle arranged each way. If you arrive at a different time and can’t make the shuttle, you can catch another shuttle for about $90 (split among however many of you are on it). The shuttle will leave the airport mid-afternoon (Time TBD after a few of us have secured tickets).

This is a fantastic Journey for individuals seeking to connect with like minded and like hearted new friends, for friends to enjoy a transformative getaway together, or for couples seeking to ‘pause’, and reconnect from the busyness and rigor of the life of the householder.

We will gather together in one of the most beautiful and biologically diverse places in the world for a week of yoga, meditation, adventure and life re-education.

Our week-long exploration of the foundational principles of the School For Radiant Living takes place in the natural beauty and wonder that is Nosara, Costa Rica.

Utilizing Costa Rica’s unique and tranquil setting, we invite you to experience peace, freedom, and radiance. You can begin your day with a dip in the ocean before our morning yoga class, or linger in bed as long as you would like, or with a sunrise meditation.

You can direct your day as you’d like -- there is a structure for each day, with plenty of opportunity for free time and ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ time.

In this retreat, you can engage the daily practices at whatever level you would like to. Each day, together as a group, we will focus on one key Radiant Living practice, which is designed to deliver you naturally into direct experiences of Awareness, Insight, and Lightness of Being.

You will immerse during the waking hours in this aspect of life, with the supporting practices of yoga, intuitive meditation, walking, swimming or beach time.

At our shared mealtimes, and in connection throughout the day, you will have opportunities to share your experience during the day, your wonderments, your insights, what you are rediscovering about yourself, and what you are feeling yourself unlearning and releasing.
