Are you a woman in mid-life struggling to find your path amidst the chaos of career change, family responsibilities, and personal growth?

Experience a transformational journey of self-discovery and empowerment, where you’ll learn to trust your intuition, embrace change, and step into your power.

Join Anna Garrett and Dee Ann Valles for this unforgettable week in Costa Rica that will have you saying a big YES to this time in your life.

As you arrive at the retreat center, greeted with a refreshing mocktail and high-energy snack, you smile as your eyes land on the resident turtles. That easy smile coming to your face is what you have been missing in your day to day. You can already feel yourself unwind from life’s daily pressures.

Walking down the path to your unique casita and home for the next week, you can sense the sacredness of the land and start to discover the tucked away spots for quiet contemplation. You come upon the pool area and release a big sigh, knowing that the refreshing waters will also allow you to play and relax as needed. You tune into the sound of the waves in the background and the many bird calls start to make their way to your ears.

The other women are gathering and exploring and you can tell that you will be making meaningful friendships, from the way they delight in the gardens to their excitement over the various casitas. What a treat to be in the company of the vibrant and curious women that Anna and Dee Ann have brought together at this special place in Costa Rica.

You’ve been resisting taking care of yourself, but you can no longer ignore the call of your body and soul crying out to be supported. This week in Costa Rica is what you have been seeking.

Retreat Leader Anna Garrett shares why taking the time for this magical week is so important in midlife:

You are so ready to dive into the learnings of the week in this slice of paradise.

As you return to the front for the first gathering, you settle into a hand-carved rocking chair made from local wood that hugs your body. You feel supported and know that the work that will happen here over the next week will move you forward. You’ve been seeking guidance and a plan to navigate these new challenges that come from career and family changes, physical and emotional challenges, and all that comes with moving through life. That deep breath you take and sigh you release is proof that you are right where you need to be.

From walks to the nearby beach to quiet time swinging in a hammock integrating the teachings and shares, this is a week to cherish. Awaking to the sounds of the howler monkeys as the light brightens over the grounds, you make your way to the pristine and quiet beach to greet the sun. The waves do their magic and you feel the reset.

In the daily sessions that honor the chakras through food, energy, and emotions, to the sharing circles with your new favorite circle of women, you begin to craft the plan. You trust that you will gain the tools and support you need to navigate life’s transitions with resilience and confidence, empowering you to face challenges head-on and emerge stronger than ever.

This is your week to settle into Costa Rica, at the intersection of ocean and jungle,
and embrace this expansive time.

Are you ready to SAY YES to your own needs and join us? 

Your days and evenings spent in internal and external exploration…

Using a daily framework of the Chakras to deepen our understanding of mind, body, and spirit.


Daily interactive discussions and activities, along with time for an awareness-building personal assessment, will culminate in the creation of an action plan. This isn’t shallow work, you are here to be fully nurtured and fully seen as the courageous woman you are.

Prepare your customized roadmap for integration of the retreat teachings into saying yes to your bigger life in midlife. With support beyond the retreat, we just know that you will take your internal and newly learned wisdom forward.

All while being nourished in all ways – from the lush landscape of this Blue Zone of Costa Rica, to the thoughtfully prepared food, to the hug of the hammocks swinging in the shaded ranchito. 

Retreat Co-Leader Dee Ann Valles shares how the transitions in mid-life can become the catalyst for growth:

The Venue…

Tantalize your senses and transform into your best self in one of Earth’s most restorative destinations… the beautiful and lush Costa Rica. The air is cleaner and fresher, the sun is brighter, the energy is more vibrant. It’s the ideal place to activate your greatest potential and honor your deepest purpose.

You’ll join us at a property that has been experiencing it’s own transformation… from hotel to retreat center: Con Smania CR. Each structure is unique and positively invites exploration through the winding paths and gorgeous landscaping.

Bordered by it’s own landing strip – or pasture when our equine friends come to visit – and very few neighbors, this safe and sacred space is also just a 10 minute stroll to the Pacific Ocean.

Guanacaste trees shade the property and provide home to a variety of wildlife, including the howlers, parrots, iguanas and so much more.

From hidden meditation spots to the grand and magnificent main building we call Haven, there is so much to explore on the property, or just lounge at our unique and fun pool for the rest you deserve.

The Food and Meals…

Inspired by the ingredients that make this one of the world’s five Blue Zones, our Costa Rican chefs craft vegetarian-focused meals that burst with flavor and texture. Fish additions to most dinners. Gluten-free always, dairy free mostly, and all allergies taken into consideration.

Get a chance to taste your way through the possibilities on offer. We believe in honoring the land through connecting closer to source in all ways. Buffet style, we encourage you to take what you need knowing you can always return for more.

Breakfasts in our front restaurant and dinners may be served in the main building, our poolside lounge, or up at the restaurant. Let us surprise you!

Anytime you need more nourishment, blend yourself a smoothie from local fruits and greens and nutritious add-ins. Grab a snack – never know what we may conjure up.
