Cultivating Self Love - Women's Wellness Retreat

Montezuma to Manzanillo, Costa Rica

Cultivating Self Love - Women's Wellness Retreat

This women's wellness retreat was lovingly created to deepen your awareness of self love and empowerment while fostering a sense of play, growth, healing and adventure! Cultivating Self Love is a Self Mastery International retreat featuring transformational experiences designed to nourish the body, stimulate the mind and soothe the soul.

We have partnered with Sumak Travel to design a journey through some of Costa Rica's top destinations to experience a great mix of adventure, wildlife, nature, relaxation, education, healing and renewal. You will visit natural wonders and unique ecosystems in the magnificent Nicoya Peninsula, one of the five Blue Zones of the world (Blue Zones are places where people live more than 100 years on average, due to the combination of healthy lifestyle, nutrition, socialization and rich ecosystems).

After getting a glimpse of San José, we will fly to Montezuma, located in the south east of the Nicoya Peninsula, where we will stay at the beautiful Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. Then we will make a short journey from Montezuma to Manzanillo, on the opposite side of the Nicoya Peninsula, where we will stay at the lovely Kaya Bloom Ecolodge, a regenerative tourism initiative with spirituality and conservation at the heart of their mission.

This 8-day wellness retreat features yoga, meditation, transformational workshops and other healing activities to enlighten your soul. Come forge new connections with other likeminded women and create lifelong bonds that deepen over time!

Traveler Reviews

“I attended the Sacred Soul Journey retreat in Tulum, Mexico, in 2018 hosted by Dr. Peggy Farmer and Kelli Reese. This was a life changing event for me. What Peggy brought to the retreat was her whole self, including her clinical experience as well as her many other skills and abilities. Her expertise is holding a safe, sacred, loving space for those in her care to heal. It was with grace, tenderness, and compassion that she led our group of women in a journey to ourselves. She leads from a perspective of non judgement and unconditional love. The tools that she taught us during this retreat were transformational and I still use them to this day! I am so thankful for our interactions and teachings that she provided for us during the Sacred Soul Journey and I highly recommend her to any woman wanting to have a meaningful and conscious life.”

Do not pass up this rare opportunity to be coached and guided by this special soul. It will be an adventure you will never forget!”
