Pura Vida in Costa Rica

This retreat was held from January 11th to 19th 2014 at the Nature Lodge, Montezuma, Costa Rica.

Our first health retreat on the “facilitators” side of the fence was extremely special for the following reasons:


1. Costa Rica is an amazing part of the world. It holds 5% of the world’s biodiversity in only around 0.03% of the world’s surface. Talk about lush! More than 25% of Costa Rica’s land area consists of protected national parks. It has an amazingdiversity of fruit and vegetables, most of which are sold at traditional style markets. The amazing animal life came to say hello to us during morning yoga classes, including howler monkeys, squirrels, tucans and more.


2. We were fortunate enough to hold the retreat with Viktoras Kulvinskas, the author of the book “Survival in the 21st Century: Planetary Healer’s Manual” which came out in June 1975, the guy some people refer to as “The Godfather of the Living Foods Movement”. Viktoras is absolutely an innovative thinker and researcher and along with Dr Edward Howell Viktoras Treeput the idea of enzyme therapy into the holistic medicine world in the 1970s as well.


3. It was an amazing experience to spend a full 9 days plus more with the guests from Australia and the US. We were able to delve deeply into the emotional and physical side of what the retreat participants had been experiencing as symptoms and also of health philosophy in general. This appeared so much deeper than what I am typically able to achieve in my consulting rooms and the environment and time spent together seemed to facilitate this to occur in a natural way.


I am extremely excited to be able to hold a retreat back on the Sunshine Coast, Australia in April 2014. This will be a three-day retreat which will condense the essence of our teachings on “Making a Health Breakthrough” for an intense and powerful “nudge forward” in our physical, emotional and spiritual health.Arenal SanCan Cover Photo
