Your Retreat Guide

As the Creator of Magic at Con Smania CR, your guide for this retreat experience is Jill Sessa, a lifelong entrepreneur, spiritual seeker, and fitness professional.

A three-year healing journey, guided by trust and intuition, brought Jill back to Costa Rica in January of 2022. This was an opportunity to begin facilitator training in breathwork, at a rustic retreat venue right on the ocean, and the chance to get further answers to her the same inquiry she had made of Taita Juanito previously and was about to make of his brother, Taita Luis:

“How do I combine my very techy and robotic brain
with my deep spiritual self in my work?”

A request to accompany a friend who was looking for a property brought her to the Hotel Flying Crocodile and the answer was instantly available. Clearly seeing the potential for creating a safe and sacred space for client visits, she realized opening a retreat center based on the same principles that had always guided her work – support for entrepreneurs on a mission – was the next step.

Calling in partnership has been a large part of her healing journey, collaboration for a more fulfilling life. The Con Smania Collective is the incredible group of shareholders supporting Jill’s work in Costa Rica, leaders, business people, healers, brilliant thinkers from all over the US.

A lifelong entrepreneur, Jill has owned fitness businesses and pilates studios, run the front-of-house operations for the largest high school national track championships in the US, spoken on stages and presented to audiences on the power of outsourcing and focusing on the innersection of what you are great at and what lights you up. She lives these principles every day and can’t wait to share how with you.


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 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.

I’m worth it, I’m investing in myself now
