Sacred Transformation Retreat in Costa Rica

Experience a powerful life shift in the private surroundings of this sacred retreat.

March 6 – 13, 2024 at Con Smania CR in Playa Buena Vista, Samara, Costa Rica

Experience deep connection and transformation as you let go of what no longer serves you. You’ll be digging into what’s holding you back and changing your life through soul searching sessions, meditation, yoga, journaling, deep discussions, sound and plant healing. In addition to the deep transformative work, you will also experience amazing opportunities as we explore Costa Rica.

This fully immersive experience will take you away to heal your body, mind and spirit.

Relaxing with soul sisters in one of the newly designed gathering spaces, the sounds of howler monkeys claiming their home for the night delights your ears…

…as you bathe in the sacred paths and spaces that make up Con Smania.

As you connect with new friends and old, you’ll discover more about yourself while adopting new tools and participating in experiences designed to push you out of your comfort zone. Uncover the possibilities that are available to you when you are standing in your full power.

You are feeling the lightness that comes from being fully supported to be your best self and getting to release the pressure and overwhelm of life.

Take the space to deepen your relationship with self without the pressures of home. Deepen your connection to nature, the earth, the ocean, and life while blossoming into your true sacred self.

Explore the possibilities of gifting yourself a magical, transformative retreat in the sacredness of Con Smania Costa Rica.

  • The gift of fully knowing and loving yourself.

  • Clarity of what fuels you and possibilities for your future.

  • The ability to identify and release limiting beliefs, patterns or blocks that hold you back.

  • A new sense of self: worthiness, passion, calm, peace, purpose, joy and excitement for your life.

  • Deep connections with soul sisters who are also on their own wellness journey.

  • The benefits to your body, mind, and spirit that come from playing, resting, and rejuvenating.

  • A deeper connection to Mother Earth.

  • Memories to last a lifetime

The Venue

Transform into your best self in one of Earth’s most restorative destinations, located in one of the world’s Blue Zones… the Nicoya Peninsula in beautiful and vibrant Costa Rica. Con Smania is the ideal place to activate your greatest potential and honour your deepest purpose.

Each casita on this sacred ground positively invites personal transformation while strolling winding paths and lush native landscaping. Guanacaste trees shade the property and provide home to a variety of wildlife, including the howlers, parrots, iguanas and so much more.

The private landing strip provides a unique opportunity for walking meditation and breathing space. This safe and sacred space is also just a 10 minute stroll to the Pacific Ocean.

From hidden meditation spots to the grand and magnificent gathering casita, there is so much to explore on the property. You’ll also take some side trips into nearby locations to experience the magic of Costa Rica. Ride a horse along the beach, enjoy a private massage or just lounge at the unique pool for the rest and rejuvenation you deserve.

The Food and Meals

Inspired by the ingredients that make this one of the world’s five Blue Zones, the Costa Rican chef designs vegetarian-focused meals that burst with flavour and texture

Get a chance to taste your way through the Chakras during your week stay. Con Smania believes in honouring the land through connecting closer to source in all ways. Buffet style, they encourage you to take what you need knowing you can always return for more.

Breakfast is served in the front restaurant while dinners may be served in the main building, the tiki bar and poolside lounge, or up at the restaurant.

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

Jenny McKee

For MANY years, Jenny lived in a cloud of depression and anxiety. She was always sad, cried A LOT, and would wake every morning in full panic mode just thinking about the day ahead.

She calls this her FUNK. She would, quite simply, shut down due to overwhelm and anxiety. Nothing would get done and she felt like she failed herself and everyone around her.

She wasn’t “that” mom, wife, friend or business owner she knew she COULD be but felt powerless to make a change. She didn’t feel she was worth it and felt selfish for wanting it.

She ended up in a downward spiral. Her relationships suffered, her family and her health suffered and so did her career.

With help and being consistent with her own personal development, she started to discover who she truly was and how her THOUGHTS created her reality. This mind shift changed her life. She started to recognize that she WAS worth it and that she was far more capable and stronger than she ever thought possible.

AND…. it was AMAZING what happened!

She got happier. Her health improved. She felt CREATIVE and INSPIRED! She was in her FLOW and that’s when the magic began to happen and her dreams were in reach.

THE FUNK still shows up from time to time, but now she has the tools to get her out of that funk… and back into her FLOW much quicker and much easier.

Heather DelRosario

In the month of June of 2009, Heather found herself sitting in an emergency room with chest pains.

She knew that something was wrong, the breakneck pace she’d been living her life, something had to give.

When the doctor came in, he told her that every physical ailment she had was attributed to stress.

You’d think that would be enough to move her forward, but it wasn’t. She was told to follow up with her family doctor, and it was that visit that she introduced Heather to a new term: burnout.

Burnout is thrown around a lot, but as her family doctor would soon educate her, it is a classified medical word with significant health impacts that can be seen mentally, emotionally and physically.

With her doctor’s help, Heather connected the dots between mental and emotional burnout and the physical toll it had taken on her body. That moment of awareness was pivotal in her journey, which put her on the path of self-discovery and would introduce her to Brenè Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection.

Reading The Gifts of Imperfection changed her life. It was an awakening moment for her. It gave her the language to understand that how she behaved reflected her past traumas and other people’s expectations, it wasn’t Heather.

Many people think that an awakening happens all at once, but in Heather’s experience, it was a series of little moments.

Subtle shifts in awareness that built upon each other led her to look at herself in the mirror, hold her gaze and say to herself, “I’m making the decision that I don’t want to live like this anymore. It is time to find me.”

In the years since that pivotal moment, she’s uncovered my purpose and has helped hundreds of women create change in their life.
