You laugh with new friends, sharing the experience of an Ayurvedic Treatment, Sound Healing or Aquatic Massage.  You are connecting and having deeper conversations than you have had in years with your new Tribe, who already feel like soul sisters.

Encircled by mountains, pristine gardens, panoramic views and distant volcanos. you can hardly believe that, at last, you’re here… nourishing your mind, body and spirit.

Ah…the delights of Costa Rica!
Let me tell you mo

Now I know you’ve heard that you can't pour from an empty cup…

…so imagine the effect of 8 extraordinary days and 7 nights in the exclusive company of like-minded women, your new Tribe of friendships emerging. Guided by feminine thought leaders sharing not only their collective wisdom and best Whole YOU insights, but also with the specific intention of helping you ignite your passions, create your vision, and fulfill your greatest potential.

The rise of feminine energy is upon us. She has been suppressed for thousands of years and the shift is now happening, can you feel it?

Feminine energy is one of the most powerful forces on earth. True feminine power is leading from the heart in all areas of our lives and allowing our intuition to guide us, no matter what the voice of fear says. When a woman is connected to her feminine power, anything is possible.

Because together, we are SO much more than the sum of our parts.

And we all know the world needs connection and positive input more than ever before, it’s obvious there’s no time to lose.

That’s why NOW is the time to become Whole YOU ~ uplift, uplevel and unleash your unique purpose and intention into the world! 

And becoming Whole YOU will radically accelerate your joy, help you connect to your purpose to make the difference you are on this earth to make.

The Venue…


Pura Vida Retreat & — Tucked serenely in the clouds, nearly a mile above the city, the Whole You Retreat welcomes you to Pura Vida. Directly translated Pura Vida means pure life. In Costa Rica the term Pura Vida is used more to say that everything is great, life is good, and nothing is worth getting stressed out over.

Costa Rica is a global go-to spot for nature lovers and adventure seekers. It’s jungles teem with hundreds of wildlife species that exist nowhere else on the planet. San José, located in the Central Valley, is Costa Rica’s bustling urban capital. We invite you to breathe in ‘pure life’ during your stay with us and enjoy your journey of inner exploration and outward adventure.

You’ll feel like you’ve found a secret oasis that only YOU know about…


And there are many more activities and offerings to thrill and nurture your spirit than you could possibly take advantage of!
