Transformational Retreat

January 18-25, 2023
Playa Buena Vista, Samara, Costa Rica

Welcome to the Qlife Transformational Retreat. Here Jen Graffice has taken her 5 Pillars of living a Qlife (Quality lifestyle) and transformed them into an incredible retreat. This breakthrough collaboration of Jen Graffice and Con Smania creates the most magical experience of transformation both within ourselves and within the sacred space of where the jungle meets the ocean at Con Smania. We journey to bring who you are and who you want to be into alignment with every area of your life; awakening the creative and transformative energy that naturally occurs when you are living from your most authentic self.

The days and sessions are designed to activate awareness, empowerment and inner truth. We invite you to deepen your connection by embodying the elements of nature with the elements of self; in the living, breathing nature of the lush Costa Rican coastline.

Come define your Q….so you can live your Qlife in 2023!

Hi, my name is Matt and I entered into the world of mindfulness and movement during my first year of college, back in 2008. Through years of exploration and inquiry, I have melded a unique style of practice centered around acute awareness, curiosity, and a playfulness that facilitates living in an embodied sense of ease. My aim as a movement teacher is to guide my students deeper into themselves, uncover a new relationship with body and mind, and to have a blast while doing so! I aim to take myself lightly and you’ll often find me laughing my way through class as I create a map for my students to navigate the juxtaposition of the inner and outer worlds.
