This retreat experience is priced very affordably, and we are available to help you arrange and book your flights. 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 Nosara’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 all of our coursework and practices, we aim to cultivate a healthy, joyful body, an alert, reflective mind, and the experience of a fulfilled Soul.

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.

Join us for a truly unforgettable, transformational life experience with five highly experienced and skillful trainers, educators and guides.
