In Costa Rica you will hear the saying “Pura Vida” all day long. Wherever you go, reminders to live the “Simple/Pure/Good life”, a way of saying hello, goodbye, and everything in between. It’s all “Pura Vida” !!! .
Now that I’m home, I feel like this truth has landed and affirmed itself within me in the most refreshing of ways.
Years ago, I made a choice that I was going to let go of what was not serving me. As challenging as it was at times, I kept the focus on simplifying, all while amplifying all that I love. Making that commitment to myself , that I’d pursue what felt good/right , and say no to what didn’t fill me up and make my Soul say YES, created massive ripples of the waves I so gratefully have been riding today ( not without some re-evaluating/ongoing work of course 😉) .
We will never escape the harsher realities of life; we all will experience heartache, and loss and stress and pain from being human. But while we’re here, why not make the most of it? Why not work on chipping away at what is bringing us down and celebrate our ability to connect deeply and joyfully to all that wakes us up to this one blessed life?!? It’s not always easy when we’re in our day to day schedule , but taking a step back, “escaping” for a bit, tending to ourselves certainly helps us to return with a greater clarity of what is truly important/how to make the changes needed to support us in finding our own unique and personal flow + living lives that reflect our truest longings.
Hosting retreats from the beginning has been about that. To get out of our boxes of distraction, to be in community and to explore the vast opportunities of being alive and tending to our inner yearning and need for healing, renewal, connection and of course JOY!
The Costa Rica Retreat was #7 and what a journey it’s been of learning and growing and expanding with so many amazing humans! Ever grateful for it all and for all those who have allowed me to be in service to this calling along the way/ excited to be feeling into what’s ahead 🔮✈️✨
