New Living Retreats

6th Annual COSTA RICA Retreats! February 3-11, 2017
Followed by our Natural Living Immersion February 12-18

yogaThe magic of Costa Rica awaits you! Nature is a powerful healer, and on a New Living Costa Rica Retreat you will be immersed in some of nature’s greatest wonders.

You will experience the exquisite tastes and super nourishment of the colorful tropical fruits, the lush green of the jungle and gently rolling mountains, the inspiring power of some of the world’s best waterfalls and the refreshment of the swimming holes, the radiant warmth of the sun which shines every day, the natural beauty and warm waters at the protected tropical beaches, and so many incredible flowers, birds, and butterflies. You will eat naturally, move exuberantly, have abundant fun, and make new friends who support your healing journey.

You’re Invited on a Grand Adventure

retreatThe journey available to you at this unique retreat will open you up to greater possibilities for a life lived fully. With new self-awareness, a healthier mind and body, toxins and mental/emotional blockages released, and a new level of energy and vitality, dreams feel possible and life becomes very exciting indeed.

The benefits of a truly healthful raw diet and natural lifestyle are too numerous to list! A healthy, cleansed and detoxified body brings about a healthy mind and balanced emotions. Exciting and unprecedented spiritual growth can be expected, along with daily experiences of profound joy. It’s been said that knowledge of what is possible is the beginning of happiness.

***Please be aware that on these retreats you will be consuming ONLY fresh, natural fruits and vegetables. No processed foods, no grains, no animal products, no coffee. Just the sun-kissed, earth-nourished foods nature intended for your body! If you are not yet familiar with this level of natural diet we will help you prepare, and you will experience a healthful whole-body cleanse.
