February 25-March 2, 2018
I've teamed up with the incredible yoga teacher (and my dear friend) Ashley Newsome in creating Cosmic Mind/Comic Body Retreat in Cahuita, Costa Rica!
Please join us for this exciting collaboration that unites astrology and yoga. During this retreat you will have the opportunity to expand your self-awareness through mindfulness, movement of the body, and the ancient study of astrology. Together we'll share and explore in the jungle, on the edge of the ocean in the perfect place that supports the process of invigorating the mind and the body.
Pricing is all inclusive. Includes transportation from the airport, accommodations, three meals daily, and all movement/astrology workshops. The kitchen at the Goddess Garden is an Ayurvedic kitchen. All food is organic and locally grown.
(Special Early Bird Rates will be posted soon. If you are curious, drop me a note.)

Flights + Ground Transportation
What airport will I be flying into?
International flights from the US arrive at (SJO) Juan Santamaria International Airport. (This airport is 3-4 hours by car from the retreat center.)
What time should I plan to arrive at the airport in Costa Rica?
Flight arrival time on February 25th, 2018-
****Arrive before 1:30pm to secure the free shuttle.****
Flight Departure time on March 2nd-
****Depart after 5pm if you want to take advantage of the free shuttle.****
Drop off at SJO is scheduled for 2pm, which will leave you a 1 hour window for traffic and a 2 hour window for international travel if you depart after 5pm.
I’m not sure if I want to take the free shuttle. What are the different options for ground transportation from the airport?
If you want to have a more “DIY” experience there are a couple of options for you that we know of.
1.) Is to take flight from San Jose Airport To Limon International Airport (LIO) on Sansa Air http://www.flysansa.com/en/home And then cab to Goddess Garden.
LIO is about a 30 minute cab ride from the Goddess Garden.
Btw, the plane is really fun and fairly easy! And affordable.
2.) You can also rent a car and drive yourself.
Do you recommend any options for affordable airfare?
Recommended airlines, for affordable flights-
momondo.com is a flight search system that tends to be a little cheaper than Orbitz.
What about arriving the day before the retreat, and/or departing the day after?
This is great idea! Head down to the section “Before and After the Retreat” to learn more.
What area is the Goddess Garden Eco-Resort in?
Cahuita Costa Rica, Caribbean Coast. In the jungle, next to the beach!
How far is Goddess Garden Eco-Resort from San Jose Airport (SJO)?
3-4 hours by car.
There are also flights leaving multiple times a day from SJO to Limon International Airport (LIO) which is a 30 minute cab ride from Goddess Garden.
Does the price include the flight to Costa Rica?
Does the price include alcohol?
Does the price include daily yoga and astrology workshops, 3 organic meals daily and non-alcoholic beverages, a private astrology reading, ground transportation from the airport, and lodging?

Before and After the Retreat (in San Jose)
Should I come a day early? Or leave San Jose a day after the retreat?
Yes! Coming on Saturday is highly suggested. Settle in, check out San Jose, have a nice dinner. We will do our best to connect retreat goers on a Facebook group before the retreat so if you want to meet up or share a hotel room, you’ll be able to coordinate.
Where should I stay in San Jose?
There are many great options! Here are just a couple that we recommend.
What is the weather like there?
Average weather is 80’s during the day and 70’s at night. It will be the dry season in Costa Rica (although it’s still the rainforest, so there may be some rain.)
Is this a trip that I can come on solo?
Yes, people will be coming solo or with friends. We are hoping to create a lively, fun and safe atmosphere for self-exploration and sharing.
Is the retreat co-ed or women only?
This retreat is inclusive of all/no genders. Everyone is welcome.
Are there a lot of bugs there?
We’ll be advising the use of bug-spray in general. On prior trips to Goddess Garden, we haven’t personally been bothered by bugs.
How much fun will I have?
We can't wait to hear from you!
