Retreat Leaders FAM Week at Con Smania CR

Envision Your Transformational Retreat in Costa Rica

August 7-11, 2024 + Optional Journey Extension to August 13
Playa Buena Vista, Samara, Costa Rica

Come experience this magical and sacred place to learn, play, and grow with like-minded souls. We love introducing Con Smania CR to retreat leaders and transformational event planners, trusting you will fall in love and consider us for your future retreat venue and tell your friends and colleagues!

Relaxing with chosen family in one of the flexible gathering spaces, the sounds of howler monkeys claiming their home for the night delights your ears…

…as the very first day spent exploring the paths and spaces that make up Con Smania CR comes to a close.

You gab with new friends and old, recounting the exercises that sparked your imagination — new tools and reclaimed ways to create a transformational experience of your own — and the many sessions you can see offering in the space!

You are feeling the lightness that comes from being fully supported to do your best work and getting to release the overwhelm of hosting a retreat… as you relax before the highly anticipated Chef’s Delight dinner.

(And you pass around the organic and safe lotion made by a local legend to make sure your skin doesn’t become a meal itself!)

Yes…the fire has been lit inside of you!
Let us tell you more….

We are inviting you to bring your spark and to tend to the fire growing within you and share with the Collective.

Together, to ignite something far greater than ourselves.

… inspiration from nature, the unique structures of the property… and the like-minded souls who have joined in the adventure to Costa Rica.

Take the space to deepen your relationship with self and others without time pressure.

Explore the possibilities in granting yourself an emergent space in the magic of Con Smania Costa Rica. A deep connection to nature, the earth, the ocean, so full of life. Meld the organic way of being into your way.

If you found yourself nodding as you read through that list, we invite you to take part…

…in Retreat Leaders FAM trip August 7-11 or 13 at Con Smania CR. Choose to extend to experience a psilocybin journey from our trusted facilitators and time for integration.

Explore the area, participate in a group beach meditation and cleanup, enjoy locally prepared meals, and give yourself space.

What YOU Are Going to Walk Away With…

So what can you expect if you spend 5 inspiring days and 4 nights lighting the literal and proverbial fire of your retreat business?

→ Well, what if you discovered the EXACT support you need to create your next retreat with ease and flow?

→ What if you connected with the right collaborators to produce an event that is far more than the sum of its parts?

→ And what if you had access to the strategy and logistics wizards that can support your vision?

→ And what if you actually took the time and space you need to plan it all out right where you will make the magic happen?

→ And on top of ALL THAT, what would it mean to you if the very aspect of your work that you have felt called to share was given the opportunity to soar!?!

Would THAT be worth visiting a magical space in Costa Rica?

Yes, without a doubt!

Here’s the thing: BEFORE you even step foot on the plane you’ll be part of our firemakers, the visionaries who bring energy wherever they go! And to make sure you get the absolute MOST from this amazing experience, we’ll get together on a group call BEFORE the event to prepare you for the journey.

This is a FAM TRIP — so that means we want you to explore and get intimately familiar with our property, the community, and our facilitators. Dive right in and get connected. Familiarization!

Join in on the group sessions that will have you re-imagining the possibilities for your own life and future offerings.

By the end of our time together, you will have planned your future event, spent time speaking directly with our Managing Partner and Operations Manager, and have a timeline for moving forward. All while enjoying a relaxing pace and soaking up the Pura Vida vibe that we all love.

We welcome your participation – on any and every level. You can’t help but open your heart and mind when you experience Con Smania – a life with passion. Are you ready to be a part of it?

And have you been curious about offering plant medicine journeys at your retreats?

Extend your stay for a psilocybin journey and integration time. Our highly experienced and attentive facilitators will lead you through the experience in a safe and sacred container. Then spend an additional day understanding the value and necessity for integration.

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 its own transformation… from hotel to retreat center:
Con Smania CR. The physical manifestation of the life’s work of our managing partner in supporting others so they can share their mission with the world. Each structure is unique and positively invites exploration through the winding paths and gorgeous landscaping.

Bordered by our own landing strip – or driving range according to one of the Collective members who is obsessed with golf – 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.

Learn what it will be like to host your own offerings at this incredible and unique property, while tapping into your own ‘con smania’- passion and wanderlust in your own life.

From hidden meditation spots to the grand and magnificent main building we call Haven, there is so much to explore on the property. And then take some side trips into the nearby towns of Nosara and Samara for even more fun. Kayak to an off-shore reserve, ride a horse along the beach, 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 design 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.

Want to Explore More?

Join us at the Samara Feria on Saturday and shop like a local. This takes Farmer’s Market to next level yumminess.

Your Host for Retreat Leaders Fam Week!

Jill Sessa, Creator of Magic and General Manager:

Jill is the Creator of Magic at Con Smania CR and steward of the project and property. A passion for supporting heart-centered entrepreneurs, you will often hear her say to “focus on your genius, let others focus on theirs” as a way for people to recognize how they can release control and work at the innersection of what lights them up and what they excel at. Retreats are her own place of deep contentment.

After many years of working with plant and being allies, Jill is most fascinated with the science of neuroplasticity and the spiritual expansiveness of journeying, breath, and meditation that can allow us to move through our own and generational trauma. A long time Pilates and fitness instructor turned business strategist, Jill’s background and blend of logic and loving awareness have led to this moment and this place in extraordinary ways.

Jill is our On-site General Manager and wearer of many hats. She herself is supported by the fabulous staff and the #dogsofconsmania. You may reach her directly on WhatsApp at +1605-671-9342 or [email protected]
